RV Parks in Los Alamos, New Mexico

RV Parks in Los Alamos, New Mexico
Los Alamos, New Mexico, is a town in the northern part of the state that is most famous for being the birthplace of the atomic bomb and as a magnet for UFO sightings. However, it is also popular with outdoors lovers. There are Pueblo Indian ruins in the area, and the town sits in the midst of the Santa Fe National Forest. For UFO hunters, hikers and mountain bikers alike, a popular option for visiting the area is to camp out of an RV or trailer in one of the Los Alamos area's RV parks.

Cottonwood RV Park

Set about 15 miles from Los Alamos, Cottonwood offers 40 pull-through RV sites with full hook-ups that can accommodate rigs up to 50 feet long. As the name implies, the park is shady and lightly forested with cottonwoods and other trees. This RV park has something of a New Age outlook about it, as it offers a yoga studio, an herb and nutrition store, and a massage spa on-site. There is also a coffeehouse at the park entrance (this is also where the registration desk is located) and a beauty salon, as well as the more traditional RV park amenities of a coin-operated laundry room and shower house. The RV park also accommodates tent-campers, and has an area with fire pits set aside for them. Free Wi-Fi is available at the coffeehouse.

Roadrunner RV Park

Roadrunner RV Park is in an arid, wide-open location. Surrounded by desert, much of the RV park itself is paved or gravel, and the RV spaces offer no shade trees or other cover. If your rig has an awning, this park is a good place to make full use of it. Roadrunner has 63 RV sites with full hook-ups, and free Wi-Fi is available in the park. The location is just off the Los Alamos Highway, about 15 miles due east of Los Alamos itself.

Trails End RV Park

Trails End is a small RV park set amid a forest of ponderosa pine. Closed during the winter months, the park has only 10 sites with full hook-ups. However, it has views of the Jemez Mountains and meadows, and has picnic tables and fire pits. The park is pet-friendly, but only with the approval of the owners, so they do request that you notify them before arrival if you are bringing your pet. Trails End is located about 15 miles east of Los Alamos.
