While writing about Albuquerque I wrote a pretty extensive review of Enchanted Trails RV Park and Trading Post, on the outskirts of Albuquerque. I was charmed by the vintage trailers and retro themes.

There are more photos of the park on my Instagram page. (Just search for Enchanted Trails.)

The rate for full hook ups was $37 per night, with 20 percent off for Good Sam and AAA members. On their website they say they will give you the 20 percent discount just for a smile! I really like that.

The only improvements I would suggest are more trash receptacles and more lighting. It got very dark there at night! As the park is adjacent to Interstate 40, there was also a lot of traffic noise, though there is nothing they can do about that.

I enjoyed perusing the trading post and gift shop, although it was surprising to me that three people working there stood talking to one another and never acknowledged my presence.

There is a propane dealer in the same lot, so I was able to stock up on propane before heading into chilly Arizona. The one and only Camping World in New Mexico is next door.

Tammy’s Tip: Do not rely solely on a website’s description of its physical location. This RV park advertises it is on Route 66. Technically, that is correct. However, Route 66 is often a frontage road adjacent to the interstate. What they don’t tell you is the park is next to the freeway, on the way out of town, and near a penal institution. Google Maps and Street View are your friend!
