Temporarily fulltiming in Albuquerque Jan-June

Hey folks and locals...
I might be in town for bussines for about 6 month and I'd rather stay in my AS than some hotel or condo.

Albuquerque... Any help and info appreciated... Weather, campground etc...

Thanks so much!

there is a long term campground just out side the gate of the AF base that I have stayed at that would be the first place I would consider. Well kept and mostly military folks so its not out of hand. It does not have a shower house if that is a big deal for you.

I think this is it

Enchanted Trails is a no thrills park on the west side of town, just off I-40. The FCU holds it's restoration rally there each year. The owner (Vickie) even has an Airstream.

Thanks that's some good starting points, I also was looking at the KOA, a bit more pricey but i'd rather pay a little more than stay in some 'trashy' park. My saftey and the saftey of my trailer is worth something too...
Also what about weather etc... Is freezing much of a problem?

In the area of Enchanted Trails but the other side of I-40 are a couple of parks.

I like the east mountains better, but snow is occassionally a problem getting into Abq. Turquoise Trail Campground Rt 14 5 m or so north of Tijeras. Owned by vintage afficianados. My favorite is Hidden Valley near Carnuel / Zuzax exits on I-40. It really is hidden. Behind and up the hill from the funky Chevron gas station that looks like it is out of the Jetsons. Close to I-40 but no road noise.

There is also a KOA in Bernalillo 15 m north of Abq on I-25

we stayed at enchanted for several months west side on 40, the other ones on the other side of freeway look like big parking lot. at enchanted which is on the hill comming into albq you would need heat tape for water and keep your tanks heaters on for it does freeze there and wind is quite a issue at times, sat service and phone service is good there if you go check out the vintage trailers on site people are nice and place is well worth to call home for a while.

After 6 months, 17,000 miles, 32 States and a host of interesting and weird places to spend the night, the ONLY place we had a problem with vandals was parked in front of my mom's house in Albuquerque. People there live with bars on the doors and vandals in the streets. My advice is stay in a park and stay out of town!

Just like any where there’s good and bad areas of town… Enchanted Trails is a safe solid place as long as you like dirt and wind J. The east mountains turquoise camp ground is much more charming but the weather can be a little rougher up there this time of year. There is a place south of Albuquerque on the Isleta pueblo ( that looks very nice it’s a great setting in the Bosque. There is also a pretty nice KOA in Bernalillo NM about 7 miles north of ALB. No matter where you stay you are going to need heat tape this time of year it’s still going to get COLD here.
