Previous owners have retaken the campground. it still lacks the luster of a well maintained park, but the owners are trying. The check-in went smooth and the owner is very friendly. Although the campground is for sale the owners are keeping it operating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The overnight fees have increased to $40 per night. If you want Wi-Fi, it is $10 per month or $3 per night. Too much money for what you get. We have stayed here off and on for the past 10 years and the owner just keeps going up on the fees. We won't be coming back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for the fireworks. This was the best view in town. We wanted 50 amp, but made due with the 30 amp. No shade. There was nothing for the kids to do. The lake was too far for them to walk to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As stated in the previous review, the park has changed hands. In my opinion, the park has gone downhill since the change. The weeds haven't been mowed, the price increased, the electrical needs upgrading. The place just looks like it hasn't been taken care of, no maintainence. We have stayed here the past 10 years, but don't believe we will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground recently has changed hands. No 50 amp service was available. No improvements other than Wi-Fi added. The price has increased. A nice place if you just want to fish or rest. In my opinion, the fees are too high for what you get. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice RV Park, with a nice view of the lake. The facilities (showers, bathroom, and hook-ups) were clean and well maintained. While there were some activities for "seasoned citizens" there were no activities for families with kids. In fact, they charged extra for kids; $3.50 a night for my teenager, and $2.50 for my preteen. I don't want to be too negative; this was the best RV Park in Eagle Nest. Most of the guest were Texans spending the summer out of the heat. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Staff is friendly...good view of lake, but there are no trees...the campground sits on the top of a hill and the lake is approximately 300 yards away...good spot to camp if that is all you want to do... We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground with 19 sites with a mixture of pull-outs and back-ins. The road and sites were on packed gravel. There are no utilities but water was available. There were 2 vault toilets. Almost all of the sites have a view of the lake and were long and spacious. Each site had a picnic table and shelter on a concrete pad with a fire ring. Since we stayed at this park off season it was very quiet and peaceful. Verizon cell phone was on extended network and worked most of the time. Verizon air card work pretty well. Your registration sticker that you put on your vehicle will allow you to visit Cimarron Canyon State Park free of charge (normally $5 per day). Be aware that there are few signs directing you to Eagle Nest Lake Park. Turn left at B11B road (coming from Eagle Nest). You will see a sign for Angel Nest Retreat RV Park. The state park is at the end of this dirt road. We would come back again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quiet open space campground, not far from town. Nice lake views. Park is newer and well maintained. Great location for dry camping and getting away from it all, Fishing and riding the narrow gauge railway. The whole general area is in a low signal cell/air card location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I am sitting in the park while writing this, watching Wood Storks and Herons on the lake, fishermen in small boats and the the weather changing by the minute. This place is a small gem that is relatively new, with very nice sites for dry camping and spectacular scenery. There are pit toilets that are nicely maintained, no shower facilities, gravel roads and sites that each have a picnic table and shelter on a concrete pad with a fire ring. There is a boat launch adjacent, a marina nearby and the town of Eagle Nest has fuel, restaurants and some shops. The Park personnel are vigilant, friendly and patrol regularly. The price is unbeatable. Ample room for our big rig. Super spot if you like dry camping!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have given this new park a 10 if it had hook-ups and/or showers with flush toilets. The pit toilet rooms were dirty and the only water spigots were outside of them. However, what it lacked in amenities, it made up for in beauty. All sites have spacious views of the lake and half are on the lake. It was quiet and most sites were level gravel. For July, it averaged 75* with nice breezes so we didn't miss the shade. We fished the lake, tripped around the quaint little town, and attended a wildlife presentation by the ranger. Bring bicycles, boat, walking shoes, and cameras for all the wildlife. What a lovely new park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Check-in hours from 9-5 in winter. Good 50 amp service at our site (extra charge). Good Wi-Fi (no extra charge). Sites fit a 40 foot RV OK but not sure a much bigger one would fit. Would definitely recommend this place and it is the only one in Eagle Nest open in Winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paid cash/check and got a double discount. Restrooms and showers were clean but when I took a shower at night the lights went out before I was finished. Fortunately I was drying but had to step out and wave my hand to get the lights back on. The site was level with a view across to the mountains. The ground was gravel and well packed. The size of the site held the car at either end but a little tight on the side but you could put out your awning. The site access was a little tight on gravel park roads. Since the park was just out of town it was quiet but had enough lighting to walk around. The internet at our site was poor but to our surprise our Verizon worked. Staff was friendly and helpful. We talked about ideas for some other activities. The park appeared to be well maintained. We stopped for sightseeing of Elizabeth Town, Cimarron, drove over to Red River and the whole of the Enchanted Loop. We used the loop drive to decide we would take the south route to Taos. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spaces were close together, but finding this more and more. Fantastic for groups of RV's. Has a nice community room, outside gathering area where they have outside entertainment on the weekends. Very friendly owners. Coffee in the community room every day. Chuck wagon outside with complimentary breakfast. Upgrade on the breakfast was very inexpensive. Home made breads and cinnamon rolls! They have group outings and crafts. The shower/ bathhouse was very neat and clean. Lake and state park area across the street. Very good central area for Angel Fire and Taos. If we are in the area again we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is all gravel and the shade trees are very few and far between. They provide a light breakfast free of charge, but they have a small restaurant that will provide a full meal for a fee. Owners are friendly and helpful. Sites are pretty close together. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed our stay at Golden Eagle. The owners were great as were the other staff. The view is beautiful, mountains in one direction and a lovely lake in the other direction. The park has many fun activities including tours to other areas. It is just a short walk into Eagle Nest and a short drive to Angel Fire. Most of the sites are filled with people who have come there for years. I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Remember, as a kid, the warm feeling you got on a cold day going to your favorite grandparents house for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner? You knew you were family, and you knew you always had a special place at the table waiting just for you! That is exactly the way the park owners makes me and my wife and our friends feel at Golden Eagle RV Park in Eagle Nest, New Mexico. They absolutely try their very best to make each guest welcome. It just seems they cannot do enough you make your stay happy. Plenty of fresh, free coffee throughout the day starting at 7:30 a.m., very clean showers and plenty of hot water. The view of the mountains cannot be beat and the early morning cold temperatures in August make this old Texan's heart leap for joy! We discovered this place three years ago and plan to return for another month next summer, along with other friends who also are also returning. Like us, they have grown to appreciate that special warm feeling and attention the owners have so generously given each time we go. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is on two seperate levels. So depending on where your parked, you may or may not, have any views of the mountains and the lake. We were parked on the edge of the upper level so we had terrific views of the countryside. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. The park is clean and neat. Their advertised "free" breakfast was vastly overstated: a couple of donut holes and canned fruit. They do have free coffee available all day to guests: nice if your a big coffee drinker. The site spaces are very tight: with slides on each side of our coach our window awnings touched the neighbors. Ok for an overnight, but too tight for a long stay. However, that did not seem to bother the large number of long term summer / monthly campers escaping the summer heat in Texas and Oklahoma. The $39.00 per night was overpriced for what you get. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The spaces VERY close together. After sliding out we were about 2 inches from electric and our awning was almost touched next rig. The large rock gravel for "patio" that wasn't level. Water pressure varies drastically from 80 psi to 50 psi or less with gauge, so you don't know whether or not to us regulator. We did & pressure was very low in rig. You are required to take your dog "off the property" for them to do their business. That is very inconvenient when it is raining or threatening rain. A free continental breakfast was supposedly pastry baked on premise & fresh fruit. We were served canned fruit & donut holes. The views are nice and the park is quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Golden Eagle RV Park, Eagle Nest, NM 540 W. Therma (Highway 64) PO Box. 458 Eagle Nest, NM 87718 Lat: 36.55276N Lon: 105.27008W This is a wonderful park with super owners, Bruce and Bridgette. This is my 4th visit and my wife and I just love it. We can't wait to get back here for the whole month of August. We are escaping the Texas heat. The park has mountain views and a view of Eagle Nest State Park Lake and the town of Eagle Nest. It is near Angle Fire (11 mi) and Red River (25 mi) Ski resorts. Complementary continental breakfast 7 days a week, the club room features wide screen HD TV, and the coffee never stops flowing. Open year around. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What everyone else has said plus...Watch out for the bear! Don't leave anything out especially small dogs. Don't miss the Boardwalk Restaurant. White tablecloth first class dining. Great food. Closed Thursdays. One block west. I'll be back when I have more time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We arrived late (11:30 pm) and the camp host (Wayne) waited up. He showed us to our space and helped us back in. He was very helpful and very nice. The owners are great too. We had a space in the back of the park, which helped when we wanted to walk our dogs. The internet connection was good. The view of the lake was awesome. Overall, we had a great time and we will return. I wish we could have stayed longer. Can't wait to go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very friendly park with basic facilities with a lot of return campers. The rec room has a laundry and showers. The Wi-Fi worked well, but you need to be able to see the Rec Hall to have best service. Campers are very friendly and have Pot Luck Dinners on a regular basis. If you are fishing the Cimmaron River or Eagle Nest Lake, this is the place. I would come back for another visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owners are exceptionally nice and interact with guests. Park located in town so walking to stores and eating establishments is easy. Owner is currently sprucing up park to make it even better. It's one of our favorite places in the area--the weather has been great in summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Small park, but price is good for the area. Not much in the way of amenities, but has easy access to "Enchanted Circle" area. Sites are a little hard to level up in, but location is right in town and walking distance to everything in Eagle Nest. Will definitely stay again when in that area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Community gazebo over grow with weeds, unmaintained, very dirty. Camping site to cramped, packed in like sardines. Hook-up connections hard to reach, need all kinds of extensions for sewer and electricity! My friends and I would NEVER stay here again terrible experience at this awful campground! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here during Memorial Day weekend. We had more than adequate parking space for our forty foot motorhome and our twenty foot motorcycle trailer. The facilities and grounds are super clean. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. We liked it so much we're coming back for the Fourth of July fireworks display. This is a nice quite and friendly RV park. We highly recommend it over larger, crowded, noisy parks near and around town. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Roads and sites are gravel but mostly level. Pull through sites face Eagle Lake. Boondocking sites available for $10 per night. Very friendly owner who occasionally hosts wiener roasts, pot lucks etc. Laundry facility and small rec. room open during business hours only. One of the best unknown gems in Eagle Lake and the cheapest! Monthly rate only $260 + electricity. A great place to stay for touring the Enchanted Circle and surrounding areas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
