Taos, NM

Will be traveling thru Taos, NM in about a week. Plan on camping in Antonito, CO. My question is what's to see and do in Taos and where can I park a 40ft MH and toad while I look around?

Can't help you much with Taos but we spend a couple of weeks every summer at a NFS campground between Antonito and Chama, NM. It's my favorite place in all the world. No hook ups but right on the Conejos River. Most spaces are plenty deep for your motorhome.

we stayed at taos valley rv park south of and across street from walmart. We left rigs in walmart when we took toad to go look for place to stay. Walmart lot is smaller so not the best deal.

The big thing in Taos is art of all kinds.. If that does not interest you, then there is really not much else there. Maybe a few old buildings at the Taos pueblo.

Taos Monte Bello RV Park, GPS: 36.46023, -105.63612

I've not camped there but have looked at it from about 500' up many times. It would be my choice just because the sites appear to have more space than the park right in town.

Antonito is fairly far from Taos. Eagle Nest or Red River are a lot nicer. Have fun!

Our plans are to travel through Taos and stop in Antonito for the night, ride train next morning. Didn't want to pass through Taos without stopping and looking around but wasn't sure where I could park and if I needed to unhook toad.

Tim, Jim and I go to Taos quite frequently but not in a MH. I don't think there is any where close to the downtown area that you can park your MH. I know the Walmart is small but you might call ahead and ask the management if you could park there for a time while you go into town/sightsee. There is a parking lot right across the street from the town plaza. Taos does have some interesting shops on the Plaza. Mary will probably find some good things to buy, I know I always do.

As someone else said Antonito is quite a ways on some highways with out much of anything. Be sure you are full of gas before you leave Taos as gas stations are few in number.

We are currently in Buffalo, WY for a week. Not sure where we will go in Wyoming next but look forward to seeing ya'll in a few weeks.

If you have never been to Colorado before be sure to bring jackets because it can get pretty chilly/cold at night. On the 4th of July 2 years ago after the sun set the temp was about 55 with a strong wind blowing. It was cold!!!!!

Thanks Ginny, good advice. Mary said she's ready to start this trip and me too. Looks like we'll be starting Tuesday or Wednesday. Took Mary up to a closed airport that behind our church and gave Mary some driving lessons so I'll need a few days to recover!Be seeing you soon!

DW always balks on that idea, she doesn't like driving any thing bigger than her car and if looks could kill I'd be long dead judging from the daggers in her eyes every time I mention it. Was it your idea? Or was it joint decision!

After Taos and Antonito I would suggest a run up to Pagosa Springs, CO. We went a couple months ago and really enjoyed the town........whitewater rafting, horseback riding, all kinds of hiking and bike trails............lots of local shopping and best of all - cool nights! Stayed at Wolf Creek Run RV park for class A's only, big nice spaces with room for toad and 50A hookups............ JB

Another suggestion for parking - why not just plan to spend a night or two in a campground and really see Taos?
