TIPS FOR FIRST TIME VISITORS:
Welcome to cool temps at 8,500 feet in this RV Resort in Northern New Mexico. Even in the summer, the high is 72-80 degrees with fabulous views at this 5-star RV resort. They have the WOW factor, and it is going strong for them as they continue to add more features to an already great resort.
Angel Fire RV is owned by Angel Fire Ski resort and is open year-round. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area in all seasons. When it’s not ski season, Angel Fire has Zip-lining, ski lift rides, a fantastic mountain bike park, golf, and horseback riding.
Red River, an old mining town, is a pretty 35-minute drive over Bobcat Pass (9,820’). Red river is known for great family activities, hiking, fishing, shopping, Red River Brewing company, 4-wheel drive tours and the Red River Ski area. Famous for its arts, music scene, and UNESCO Living World Historic site Taos Pueblo, Taos is a beautiful 25-minute drive away thru Taos Canyon. Old warm charm greets visitors with the historic abode plaza, Rio Grande Gorge bridge, white water rafting on the Rio Grande, fantastic shopping, and museums featuring Georgia O’Keefe works.
Remember to take in many of the great restaurants: Lamberts on Bent Street or Ranchos Plaza Grill on the old plaza in Ranchos de Taos where the San Francisco de Asis Mission Church is situated. You must drive around the old mission for the best pictures.
For those in a mood to drive, the 84 mile “Enchanted Circle Driving Tour” takes you thru Red River over Bobcat Pass, thru Questa and Taos and returning to Angel Fire. Great mountain, gorge and plains views abound! Keep an eye out for Rocky Mountain Big Horn sheep on you way out of Red River or at the Rio Grande Gorge bridge!

TELL US ALL ABOUT IT:
I camped here in July and the daisies where blooming in the grass around my site, a very pretty touch of class. I love walking among the perennials on the walking path that surrounds the resort; such a relaxing place to enjoy the sunrise.
The resort has family-friendly activities such as a playground, pickleball, putting green, horseshoes, and fun scooters available to rent at the office.
The beautiful location, summer climate, surrounding activities, and resort amenities make this campground an incredibly special place.
