Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post will transport you back to the heyday of Route 66. Located near the famed roadway, the park has seven super fun vintage RVs you can rent (or admire from afar), which add to the mid-century ambiance. The onsite adobe trading post was constructed in the 1940s and truly adds a sense of place to this southwestern campground.
Located on a mesa west of Albuquerque, Enchanted Trails RV Park offers beautiful views of the sunset and the city lights. You’ll find over 130 campsites, most are pull-thrus with full hookups. A few water/electric sites are available. Sites are gravel, and shade trees are dispersed across the campground to provide some sun protection.
Expect to pay $30-$37 per night, with Good Sam and AAA discounts available. The website even claims they’ll give you a 20% discount for a smile—what a deal! Albuquerque fills up during the annual Balloon Fiesta and other popular festivals, so rates may be higher and reservations are required long in advance during these events. If you want to stay in one of the retro RVs, prices range from $56-$86 a night. Note that children under 10, pets, and smoking are not allowed in these preserved beauties.
At Enchanted Trails RV Park, you can expect to find many amenities to make your stay pleasurable. Cool off in the pool after a busy day. The showers and restrooms have been recently updated, and laundry facilities are offered. Spend some time in the Trading Post, which features local arts and crafts and regional foods.
Correspondent Kate Dunbar shared her regional favorites. Her restaurant recommendations included Frank’s Famous Chicken, Frontier, and Monroe’s Restaurant. Venture to explore historic Albuquerque, take a ride up the Sandia Tramway, or check out the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center while in town.
