Wide Open Spaces

Eagles Nest Lake State park campsites are pretty wide open like the valley it is in. There is a nice cement pad with an awning and fire pit. Not much else and I wouldn't recommend it for tent campers. There were a few people braving the cool nights and crisp mornings. Water available when you drive in and that is about it. So plan on boondocking. Our site was level and drive through. The drive through sites are not huge so if you have a big rig you might want one of the back in sites. The sky was beautiful at night with the milky way visable. If it wasn't so cold I would of been taking photos. Access to the lake is a relatively short walk and may change if the lake wasn't so low.

Don't let the drive in fool you.

Mountains, lake, prairie dogs, deer…a little piece of heaven. Here in the off season, had the campground to ourselves. No power, no sewer, pit toilets. Loved this place!

One of my favorite spots in NM

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS :) beautiful scenery and very clean! i liked the set up of the camp ground, very spacious but still felt like a nice community. 10/10 must see.

Amazing spot

Great views surrounded by mountains…right on the red river. Minutes away from town and skiing…. Level spots host are amazing, super helpful and attentive. Wifi was pretty decent, showers and laundry were really good as well. Will definitely come back in spring for a different view…

A mixed bag, but overall a very nice stay.

We stayed here for two nights in mid-June, 2020…so grateful to have an RV so we can travel during this time of COVID. We came up from Albuquerque to do some hiking in some mountains(cooler). We had great rain both evenings and sat under the awning and just relaxed after a long day on the trails.

The location of this park is its best feature, I have to say. Nestled right against the mountain. Lots of trees and shade. There is a little stream, which is nice to listen to. Our site was on the edge of the stream, but there was a short, steep bank down to the water, so we didn't really spent time at the water. Site 1& 2 appear to have easy access to the stream(in case you've got kids who would like to splash around a little). We had a full service site, and everything worked fine. Water pressure is a smidge low, but not a big deal.

The atmosphere here is pretty laid back. There were overnighters and long term and everything in between. Some tent camping, and then all sizes and ages of RVs. The operators were friendly, although as is the case during these interesting times, we had minimal interaction.

As other reviews I've read have stated, there is a bit of junk around the area. It's mostly corralled into separate areas, but no doubt you will note it and perhaps feel just a little bit like you're camping in a junkyard. This is NOT a pristine campground. It's a bit rustic overall. If you have to drive to any of the sites a little further from the office, just watch out for tree branches. They hang pretty low and haven't been addressed by trimming in awhile.

There is NO cell service. Not a bar to be found. And the wifi (free) is REALLY spotty. I had very minimal luck just checking email. Forget about streaming anything. Just be prepared…it was hardly a major issue for us. But if you need good cellular, you'll have to drive up the road a half mile or so.

Although humble in many ways, we were already discussing our next visit here. So we DO recommend Sierra Village…with some caveats.  (Note, we also stayed here one night in September, 2020, with my daughter & SIL.  Aside from the drought having dried out the stream, it was again a very nice visit.)

Sandy desert like

We stayed in the first pull out to the left of the road. Watch the entry off CO 150 as it is very narrow. No hookups but no fee. All was well until the wind came up suddenly and we were in a brief windstorm with sand all in our trailer.

Unacceptable for tent campers!

This was definitely the worst campground we’ve stayed in. We almost just left after paying for our site and seeing the condition of the campground But it was late afternoon and we were tired. The tent camping sites were TINY and separated from each other by “stick fencing” made of tree limbs. There was also a house 20 feet behind us and the owners were very loud until 11:30. Most of the amenities were not available or so filthy that you couldn’t use them. No paper towels or soap in the wash house. No water in the supposed stream that runs thru the park. We didn’t take the time to look at the RV sites so can’t really comment But if you are a tent camper you should look elsewhere.

Lots of space!

Very secluded! Even when full I imagine the spots are far enough apart. If the spots are full keep going down the road! Plenty of dispersed camping! We’ll be back! Beautiful scenery!

Peaceful & quiet!

We drove in about 5:00 pm and they had 2 vacancies! Camp host was great! Friendly neighbors! Highly recommend if you’re looking for a relaxing time!
