In Taos, the two best full hookup options are the Taos Valley RV park, which is off the main highway on Este Es Rd. in the southern part of town, which can have nice views, or Monte Bello RV park, which is north of town and has gorgeous views but a bit of highway noise.

Navajo Lake State Park has already been mentioned, but check out the New Mexico State Parks website-- there are a number of nice state parks in northern NM, and most have a good percentage of sites with water and electric, with a dump station nearby. Plus, many of the campsites can be reserved in advance if you set up an account on their website. You'll find something that suits the needs of your party (Heron Lake State Park is my own current favorite).

Also, check out Morefield campground inside Mesa Verde National Park, which is less than 40 miles from Durango. There are 15 full hook-up sites that can be reserved well in advance. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there over Labor Day weekend.

We're heading to Ouray from Phoenix this week... what's the best route... Farmington north on 550 to Ouray? Is that the route that people are advising against?

How is 145 from Cortez to Placerville, then 62 to 550, then south on 550 to Ouray? Better than going north on 550 from Farmington?

You will want to take 145 North out of Cortez and circle down to Ouray. Hwy 550 is closed 8a to noon and 1p to 5p on Red Mountain between Silverton and Ouray for avalanche work.

Ranchero de Sante Fe RV Park

Ranchero is South of Sante Fe and you will see it on the same road as the KOA. In fact, you will see it just before you get to the KOA. Plus: hookups and wifi are great, lighting at night requires a flashlight, but the number of stars that you can see is incredible (rare and astonishing for me), many trees for shade. yet my satellite tv reception is great, propane and ice on premises. Minuses: gravel roads and sites, somewhat dusty, for the end of the season the pool closed 2 days ago and nightly movies ended 2 days ago. Ready access to downtown Sante Fe.
