I busted my rear the past two weeks and was directed by my boss to take a week off work. Works well for me, as I have put money down on a Fleetwood Cobalt and am itching for a camping trip. The Colorado mountains are still quite cold in March, so I am considering a trip south for 4-5 days in about 2 weeks.

My questions is this:
Which campground would you recommend that is low elevation enough for warmer temps, but still in the forest and near decent fishing and possibly off roading?

I think for this first trip, electric hookups would be handy, just to ensure the battery gets a full charge and I can test out all of the gizmos, gauge my batteries abilities for boondocking while able to recharge them well if (and when) I run the battery down. I am not looking for an RV park, I just want a campground with electricity.

Thanks for your feedback.

A bad day camping is better than a good day at work.

We camped once (tent) in Santa Fe in October. That was a few years ago, BRV (before RV). It was a nice campground and I know there were RVs there. Just on the outskirts of Santa Fe. Can't remember the name.

But, the strange thing is that when we got home, I had an email waiting for me. A restaurant in Santa Fe had been to my cookbook and loved my mother's recipe for Corned Beef and Cabbage. They liked it so much they put it on the menu. The restaurant was Celebrations. We never went there, but we're planning on going back to Santa Fe as my wife loves Georgia O'Keefe who has a Art Museum there.
