The Enchanted Circle Campground sits on the Avalon Ranch. It is 161 owned acres surrounded by a state trust lease. E<< is very proud to have been voted #1 Campground in NM 3 years in a row. It was originally homesteaded in 1893. It was also the first potato farm in NM. It has seven ground-fed springs that run year-round. They converge after filling 4 of our ponds in the marshland where the potatoes were grown. A family of 4 lived in the first dwelling built here, not much larger than a shed. Since that time 2 homes, 1 of which still stands, a barn, a smokehouse, and 4 outbuildings were constructed. There are old wagons and farm equipment from the late 1800s and early 1900's still strewn about the ranch. We are home to Huge herds of Elk, mule deer, turkeys, prairie dogs, eagles, black bears, 8 horses, chickens, pigs, goats, our two dogs and 3 cats, and the occasional Mountain Lion. We live here year-round. We love our land and want to share it with others. I am a Veteran and our intent is to eventually have a Veterans Retreat facility here. Not a retreat itself, but rather a location for all of the retreats, nationwide, to be able to utilize, so they can use the funds they have to do what they do best. You are helping to make that possible. We do pride ourselves on minimally impacting our land. We Strive to keep it clean and as close to nature as we can. We encourage you to leave it better than you found it, as it is only making it that much better. We encourage you to get out and explore. Trailblaze. Be a pioneer. Go wherever you feel lead. And as always, Veterans, LEOs, and Fire Fighters are always free for one night up to 4 guest.

The campground we were in was just beautiful. In addition to that, it was nicely secluded. None of the other spots on the property are within earshot, so you pretty much end getting a significant area to yourself. We pulled up with a couple of campers and really enjoyed the experience. Kids had a blast.

Enchanted Circle Campground is a great place to camp if you like peace and quiet. The sites are pretty large and spread out from each other. The sites are set up great with large fire pits, large benches, charcoal grills, grilling utensils, and more. The sites also have a trash can at the site along with solar lights. The locations are just beautiful and highlight the best of Northern New Mexico. This is our third time staying and will be staying again next season. Thanks Landon for making your beautiful home available for others.

Picturesque spot. We couldn’t have asked for better. We had 7 kids and 4 adults at camp. The kids roamed about all over the property and had a big time. The campsite was well developed and everything we needed.

Best campground for kids and animal
Excellent trip as always. ECC is wonderful and The Aspens (site 4) campsite is my favorite. It was perfect timing for the leaves changing colors. Hosts are always great, we will be back again next year.

Family mountain biking trip
I stayed at site 4, this is a very private setting, well maintained site and they even provide the basic necessities for camping. Property was amazing, trees were beautiful and site was perfect. Landon was very professional and even let my kids pet the horses, goats and pigs that roam the property. It was nice to be able to leave our trailer and camping items out and not have to worry about them “taking off”. Will definitely return in the spring. Also only about five minutes from the Ange fire for mountain biking.

Easy breezy big sky perfect
As so many other reviewers have said, what an incredible slice of land and what a gift it was to spend time there! So much space I never saw anybody else and didn’t hear any night noises! Maybe the cleanest outhouse I’ve ever used. The water is delicious, the firewood burned beautifully, the caretaker was so kind and welcoming, the horses were charming. This was my first solo camp experience and it was perfect for bringing the dogs, watching the stars, cooking over a fire. Our hearts are full. Thank you!

We loved our time.
We loved our 11 day stay at Landon’s place. The sites were spread out, secluded, and each one beautifully unique in different ways. Short drive to the angel fire bike park and easy access to Red River and Taos. My kids loved all the animals both domesticated and wild! We’ll be back for sure.

Site 3 "The Cliffs"
We didn't want to leave!
We spent 3 nights tent camping at spot 3 and it was perfect. The site was clean, had nice extras like a grill and hammocks. We felt completely secluded and barely saw anyone even when we ventured around the property. We took a quick drive up to Red River to check out the fall colors. But other than that, we had no reason to leave the campground. The private porta potty is a game changer and it was spotless. We plan on going back, but next time longer.

Awesome host and amenities!
Site 3 was perfect for our group of 5! Plenty of room for our three tents and great views. We loved that there were two fire pits and a shaded cover. The site already had hammocks and water set up for us, and Landon was amazing to work with! We loved seeing animals, exploring the land/games area and the privacy of the sites. Would absolutely recommend to anyone in the Angel Fire/Taos area!

We loved the seclusion at our camp. The ranch is beautiful. We loved sitting by the fire at night listening to the elk bugling. We loved being there. Thank you so much. We can’t wait to come back.

Enchanted Circle campground lived up to its name! We had a very peaceful camping experience in a gorgeous area, away from the noise of this world. It was just what we needed to disconnect for a while. The campsite was immaculate, so many little extras provided: complimentary drinking water in a jug hanging from a tree, fire pit, grill and even playing cards in a waterproof bag. The property is stunning and not too far out of town, just enough. Communication was excellent with Landon with needed updates, all within a timely manner. We will definitley revisit and share this treasure with our friends and family.

Second stay with ECC at site 7
This was our second visit to ECC, and it was so good that we booked our third visit while sitting at our campsite. We tried site 7 this time which had incredible views. The road noise was something we didn't get at site 2 last time, so that was a little bummer but not bad enough that I wouldn't book this site again. The views really do make up for it. We enjoyed the ponds, caught a fish, and had a lovely walk around the campground. The cherry on top was a group of 6 deer (all bucks) that came so close to camp and we could all stand watching them graze and lay around in the trees. Thank you Landon and the ECC crew for letting us enjoy this wonderful land once again.

Another great trip
This is our second time here in the last couple of months. Stayed at Site 1. Great view of valley and ponds. Close to the barnyard so the kids can walk over anytime and see the pigs, goats, chickens and horses. My daughter really enjoyed horses. Landon and is wife are great and will answer any question you have. Will be back to try out another site.

Great Property, Great Experience
My husband and I tent camped at ECC at site #1 Lake View. It had beautiful sunsets over the lake and the site was well thought out. We spent the first day exploring the property and walked 6.5 miles just checking it out. The camp sites are pretty far apart so we didn't see anyone else the whole time we were there:) Landon's pigs and goats occasionally came by for a visit. We loved it and will be back for another trip soon. We really want to try the aspen site next!
