New RV Park Planned for Angel Fire, N.M.
Angel Fire Resort has announced approved plans to develop a modern, state-of-the-art, 260-space RV resort in Angel Fire, N.M., located approximately 30 miles east of Taos.
Over the course of the next few years, this luxury park will be constructed on 94-acres of mountain meadow land with scenic views of the Angel Fire ski mountain to the south, and Mount Wheeler, New Mexico’s tallest peak, to the north, according to a news release.
“Angel Fire Resort is committed to creating an RV hospitality experience unlike any other in North America,” said Daniel E. Rakes, general counsel of Angel Fire Resort. “We’re working with the top experts in RV resort development to identify the most desirable amenities, and to guarantee the best resort practices, so that we greatly exceed the expectations of today’s passionate RV travelers.”
The new RV resort will include a well-appointed private clubhouse, paved roads, fully concreted, over-sized spaces with easy pull-through access and 50-100 amp electrical pedestals, bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities, convenient Wi-Fi access, 100 heated storage units, 10 cabins, outdoor fire pits and jacuzzis, putting and chipping greens, horseshoe pits, dog friendly areas and more. Each RV space will be large enough to handle the slide-outs of today’s biggest recreational vehicles. RV spaces will be available for short and long term rentals.
The approved location for the RV resort is adjacent to the Carson National Forest and the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway. With frontage access to U.S. Highway 64, it provides guests with convenient proximity to the wide array of outdoor recreation amenities in Angel Fire, including golf, skiing, horseback riding, cycling, hiking, snowmobiling, fishing and more. The RV resort will also have its own private access to Carson National Forest, where visitors can bike, hike and snowmobile. The resort is seeking permitting for ATV trails with the U.S. Forest Service.
“Taken together with the new Angel Fire Resort Golf & Country Club, and the extensive renovations to the Lodge at Angel Fire, this new RV resort adds considerable momentum to Angel Fire’s position as a premiere family vacation destination in the Rocky Mountains,” said Rakes.
Living Designs Group in Taos is working with Angel Fire Resort to oversee the design of the new RV resort. This award-winning design company has worked on such notable New Mexico projects as the 4-star El Monte Sagrado luxury resort and the new Angel Fire Resort Golf & Country Club.
The resort’s plans were approved this month by the village of Angel Fire’s town council as well as the planning and zoning committee. Immediate next steps are to extend utilities and infrastructure to the site starting in September.
