We stayed 7nights with a class A and car in tow. There is a LARGE Camping World, RV dealers and truck repair shops just down the road. The facility has a lot of gravel, laid out well for long rigs, and easy access on/off I-40. The owners and staff are great to chat with and friendly.
They accepted a last minute reservation and the staff was very nice. The owner provides a 1 night free stay for active military with their ID. We were extremely grateful for that because we are on a 3 week move for the military to Alaska. Thank you!
This is an old park. Wi-Fi only worked about 100 feet from office. we were in space A-6. When I asked the older gentleman in the office about it, he seemed unconcerned. I used the large commercial washer in the laundry room and it failed to do the spin cycle. The same gentleman gave me some quarters, so I got to spend another 40 minutes washing the same load in another washer. The only positive about the park is the old cars and trailers that they have on site. One couple arrived just before dark and even though they had reservations, there was no afterhours check-in left for them. They rarely answer the phone.
Enchanted Trails is well cared for and maintained. Staff are friendly and helpful; providing local information and sightseeing suggestions. Fellow campers were also friendly. Evenings were cool and quiet. Great gift store and common areas are full of Remember-When vintage items. We much enjoyed the vintage cars and trailers that are available for rental stays also. The roads are gravel and the open sky is perfect for picture perfect sunsets.
This park was so far out, you could hardly see Albuquerque. It is all dirt, hardly any trees, have no idea how the rest of the park was, we turned around and found a nice place in the city so we could drive to see the city of Albuquerque.
Nice park with classic trailers grouped behind the office. A few trees, but of course this is Albuquerque. Only one restroom located at the office, so if you get set up at the far end, it is a very long walk if you get set up at the far end of the park. The restrooms were fairly clean but they need to figure out some way to reduce the number of dead bugs all around the sink area. That is the only reason I dinged them down one star.
We stayed for 4 nights. The park is well kept and clean. Be advised though that this is the windiest place on earth. You cannot sit outside at your site, at all. Also, because the park is gravel and not paved, there is dust that blows everywhere. There is no grass and the shade is reserved for "special campers".
Our biggest complaint is that this park should be a 55+ only park. The management thinks everyone goes to bed at 8pm because they close the laundry and the main building at 9pm. Why?
We stay up late and we like to do laundry at night
And Why is the pool not open? Don't advertise a pool if it isn't available.
In summary, if you are a senior citizen who stays in their rv all the time and goes to bed early, this is the park for you.
The park is quiet, clean and well maintained. Park pool access is dependent on season. Staff are very friendly and pleasant. Sites are level. Pull thru's for long, towing units. No cable TV but OTA is very accessible since park sits on high plateau above Albuquerque. Easy access to shopping and sight-seeing. I would stay here again when in the area.
Great prices. Old cool cars and restored RVs. A plus is its next to a Camping World. Bathrooms spotless. They have a pool table and tv room next to laundry. Like going back in time. Great place. Just missed the Beading Convention! My wife wants to come next year at this time. You'll love this place.
We enjoyed our stay at Enchanted Trails. We attended the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque and this was a great place to stay.
The managers were friendly and helpful. We originally thought the campground was too far from shopping and restaurants but soon learned that everything we needed was just a short drive away.
Camping World is next door -- we really liked that :)
The only thing I missed was not having cable hookup, but we were able to get many local air stations.
I was pleased with our stay.
This place was like stepping back into the 1950's. The antiques, even in the laundry room were a joy to look at and relive the memories. The staff was kind and attentive. We were running late checking in and they made sure on a busy weekend that they put a cone in our spot for our arrival. We stayed on the beginning of our trip and on the way home. We will return to this campground.
Just west of town is this RV Park. Is clean and updated and brings you back to earlier days with their set up of old trailers and vehicles and the old gas station in the back of the property. Wi-Fi was strong and the parks location allowed you easy access to side roads to attractions in the area without having to hop on most of the expressways. Old Town and route 66 were at your finger tips. Madrid on 14 was a short ride and Route 4 north of town to a Caldera, Los Alamos, and Bandalier for a day trip was accessible. Staff were very helpful during our 4 day stay.
