The Land of Enchantment holds plenty of surprises for adventurous RVers.
Rugged mountains, far-as-the-eye-can-see desert vistas, and dreamy sunsets await outdoor adventurers in New Mexico, and the fifth-largest state is dotted with historic monuments, natural wonders, and remnants of the Wild West. Whether you’re road-tripping through Albuquerque along historic Route 66, discovering the state’s cultural heritage in Navajo, or white-water rafting along the Rio Grande, you won’t be far from an RV park or state park. Further south, there are miles of mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking trails, as well as RV camping in the Gila and Lincoln national forests, while the lakeside campsite at Elephant Butte Lake State Park fills up during the hot summer months. Self-contained RV campers can enjoy backcountry camping (permits required) at White Sands National Park and Carlsbad Caverns National Park, but for pull-through campsites and full hookups, drive your big rig to an RV resort in Las Cruces, Roswell, or Truth or Consequences instead.
