Nice small park with Great views. I was in a motorhome w/tow in space 2. I was here only 1 night passing through and would certainly stay again.

Stephanie White

We stayed two nights. Very nice and great place to stay. The view was worth the whole time we were there.

Becky & Mark Huntley

The views are amazing. Horrible phone service. Horrible internet services. Not to mention The owner, specifically the wife, needs to take a class in people etiquette. Rude, disrespectful, non-appreciative. No one should ever treat customers the way she treats hers. Unbelievable!!!

Campground Response

This lady stayed at our park for 6 months must not have been too miserable as she was free to stay elsewhere. She had verizon service which is the worst service here admittedly and we are on a sattellite internet as it's the only ISP available she knew that when she booked. She decided to write this review when she demanded a last minute extension during the pandemic. When I told her I would look for a spot as we were booked up she went nuts demanding to know why she had to move. I told her in writing that we have online booking and that we were slammed due to every RVer trying to find a spot. I then played Jinga moved other guest only to have her say forget it. Shall I also say we provided them a long term propane at our cost making sure the propane company came regularly through the winter. Some people just don't like not getting their way when they throw a wheel. Cheers! Oh and BTW the folks that took her site love it.

We loved our stay - gorgeous view and hummingbirds jetting through the whole place. We recommend spots 11-15 for the nice view. Everything was closed (bath house etc) because of Covid but it was still a wonderful stay.

Hope you come back soon.

We’ve been trying to stay here for a couple of years. The only option we had usually was to stay at Trinidad Lake. Colorado parks are too expensive plus you have to pay extra for parking. They were closed for this covid rip. Really? I felt completely safe here and there is no contact between anyone actually when you check in. The host was so nice to escort me to the site, help me back in, and was so very kind to offer to help. We thoroughly enjoyed the spot which overlooks an amazing valley ( The Sante Fe trail ) and distant snow capped mountains in May. The park is exceptionally well kept. The laundry was small but adequate. It was May so the blooms were not started yet but you could see gorgeous pines and many native colors waiting to happen. I actually love the crushed granite parking. There is wildlife in the area along with black bear, so carful attention should be made to leave nothing to attract them. Refuse is cleverly locked away from the campsite The store was not open when we were there but the buildings are all so authentic with there cedar posts. A nice mountain get away and surprisingly being so close to the freeway is barely noticeable. Late nights are pleasant with a huge starry clear sky. Although Wendy I’m sure in certain times. When the wind lays, it is most pleasant. Plenty of things to see in Raton and Trinidad. A very pleasant stay. We had to leave early for medical reasons I would love to say thank you for your help in getting me away and into another park here in Albuquerque. The Enchanted Trails is an exceptional park as well.

Very conveniently located off the highway with beautiful views. No streaming on the WiFi as it is satellite provided. Well maintained and level gravel. There is a hiking trail off the lower level.

Jean Dupre

Amazing view, good sized sites, some pull through. The store and bath house were closed due to Covid19 constraints. Staff were very pleasant.

Brad Arnot

We stayed one night on our way to Texas. Very nice people that run the park, plus, when you wake up in the morning and look outside, the views can’t be beat! We saw deer & a coyote not very far from the park. But this area is prime habitat for bears, mountain lions, bobcats, eagles, Stellar Jays & other wildlife. Keep pets in a short leash! We’ll definitely be back here again.
