Monte Bello RV Park, Taos

We will be leaving Santa Fe this Thursday and moving to Taos. Looking to maybe stay in Monte Bello RV Park. Anyone here stayed there? Would you recommend? Will be in Taos around a week and want to see Rio Grande Gorge State Park, Red River. Angel Fire. Will be looking for our next spot. Might go on to Pagosa Springs Co?

Monte Bello is a nice park for Taos. It's basic but very clean. They take some memberships - used to take Passport America, for one. It's really the best one for Taos.

We weren't able to get a reservation there last month and ended up in Taos valley RV park, which was an OK place and close to town.
We drove by Monte Bello on the way to the Rio Grande Bridge...it's real close to the bridge, looked like an OK place too. It is a bit of a drive into Taos from there.
Taos Mesa Brewing Company is close to the CG... looks like they have activities there, I think on the day we left, they were having a blues fest.

Just found out there is big barn dance in Taos this next weekend. No room at the inn. Monte Bello is full this coming weekend. Got reservations at Taos Valley RV Park for Thurs, Fri, and Sat nights only. We will be trying Red River or Angel Fire for Sunday. Or maybe make a run north and try Pagosa Springs, Co? We will see.

We stayed there a couple years ago. It was a very nice little park with great views. The owners are retired military and they are both charming friendly people. Allow 20 minutes to check in as the wife is a virtual tour guide to the area. We found the drive into town easy and an acceptable distance.

We stayed there a week ago. We thought it was a clean and well operated park. We loved the use of native landscaping, which gave a sense of separation between the sites. We would definitely stay there again. It is small and tends to get full. They have a short nature trail, but be aware that this is high desert, and everything either stings, pricks, or bites.

Just a hint, when we were there, the road to the Taos Valley CG (Este Es) was closed at it's intersection with 68 as they were putting in new pipes. I used the GPS to work through the detour, it took me way out of the way to where I had to unhook the toad and back up the coach. I talked to a homeowner where I had to unhook and she said she gets lots of people there with the bad GPS routing.
So, if the road is still under construction, you'll see a detour sign on 68 putting you on 585. Follow that about 1/4 mile and you'll get to a roundabout... take the first right on the roundabout (Gusdorf Rd) and follow that road for about 1/2 mile and it will put you into the entrance of the park.

We made it into Taos Valley RV Park. Este Es was not closed. Staying thru Sat night. Then they are full. We are then moving to Monte Bello for Sun and Mon night. Then on to Chama and Pagosa Springs. Thanks for the help.
