Our northward journey through New Mexico continued as we left Santa Fe in route for The Enchanted Circle. We set up basecamp at Monte Verde RV Park in Angel Fire – it’s located in a beautiful valley just 20 miles from Taos!
Here’s the Breakdown:
Location: Angel Fire, New Mexico
GPS: 36.4119, -105.2942
Date / Temp: We camped here for a week in early July. The temps were amazing! During the day we enjoyed sunny skies with temps in the 80s and the nights brought cool 40 degree temps – perfect for a good nights sleep.
Amenities: Monte Verde offers full hookup sites with back in and pull through options. The park has trash & recycling receptacles and offers easy-to-access propane fill up. They also have a clean bathroom & shower facility.
Wifi / Cell: Monte Verde RV Park has dang good internet. We streamed Netflix, uploaded YouTube videos and surfed the web without issue – and we did all of this with the RV Park at full capacity! We also received 4G LTE with AT&T and T-Mobile, but many times the RV Park’s wifi had a faster download rate.
Noise: The town of Angel Fire is pretty quiet to begin with… so noise at the park was inherently minimal. We enjoyed the peaceful vibe of the park – it made for many mellow campfire evenings.
Grocery / Errands: The heart of Angel Fire is just a few miles from the park. It has a grocery store, two gas stations, post office and a few local shops with ski & bike gear.
Dog Friendly: The park is dog friendly and offers a scenic dog trail toward the back of the park. There are also numerous National Forest hiking trails nearby that allow dogs.
Entertainment: We really enjoyed exploring The Enchanted Circle. There is so much culture to experience in this area. We took a day to drive the 84 mile trail and also explored Taos multiple times. Angel Fire is also a Ski & Mountain Bike destination!
