Enchanted Circle Campground in New Mexico

Host Landon And Sofia Dooley says:

The Enchanted Circle Campground sits on the Avalon Ranch.  It was Originally homesteaded in 1873.  It was also the first potato farm in NM.  It has seven ground fed springs that run year round.  They converge after filling 3 of our lakes 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, and 4 outbuildings were constructed.  There are old wagons and farm equipment from the late 1800's and early 1900's still strewn about the ranch.  There are 3 nationally protected Native American grounds here, that multiple Colleges visit to research and study.  We are home to Huge herds of Elk, mule deer, turkeys, prairie dogs, Eagles, black bears, 6 horses, chickens, pigs, sheep, our two dogs and 2 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 here.  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.  Go wherever you feel lead.  And as always, Veterans, LEOs and Emergency Services are always free.
