RV Campgrounds & RV Sites RV Camping & Storage at Chama River RV Park & Storage

Stay here and ride or take photos of the Cumbres and Toltec Narrow Gauge Train as steams over the river on historic bridge by our park. Camp along the Rio Chama with tall trees to shade our grassy sites. Big rigs will enjoy the spacious 60 foot drive-thrus sites with room for slideouts.

Unlike most scenic railways, this one provides a full day ride, running for 64 miles along the Colorado-New Mexico border and crossing through some spectacular gorges. If you want to experience it as the barons and captains of industry did back in the day, spring for the luxury car, which is decked out in Victorian decor. The mountains of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado are a veritable playground for outdoor recreation. The high peaks provide endless hiking opportunities while the alpine lakes formed between them are excellent for anglers, paddlers, and swimmers.

Runs was originally built by the Denver & Rio Grande out of Denver, Colorado. The most scenic section is now preserved as The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. When you are up in the high passes and the clatter of rail joints lulls your mind, think of all the people, and all their reasons for traveling, that have gone this way before. In one hundred years, that’s a lot of reasons. “Been staying at Rio Chama RV park for several years every time I go to the Cumbres Toltec railroad. The staff is great and very helpful. They keep the park very clean and inviting.” Been staying at Rio Chama RV park for several years every time I go to the Cumbres Toltec railroad.

When I called to reserve two days during the week I was told they had one spot left that was $42. When I arrived they told me the only spot they had was a premium spot directly on the river which is more money. Once were in the park or realize that at least half of it is empty and stayed empty the entire three days while where is covenant in fallout 4 we were there. As well they had other one night people who they kept placing in the premium riverfront spots when they were plenty of other pull through sites available. So it seems like they’re pushing everybody into their premium spots to make more money. And that whole last available site thing is clearly bogus.

Multiple sites located right on Rio Chama, with most sites close enough to walk to the river. If you enjoy fishing, this is the place for you. The river is stocked with trout throughout the season. Rio Chama RV park in Chama, New Mexico, is nestled in a grove of trees at the intersection of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad and the upper Rio Chama. At an elevation of 7800 feet we are open May 1 thru mid October. For railfans, fishermen, or people wanting a great home base for their explorations of the region, our park is a great place to stay.

One of your first stops for outdoor adventure should be Huron Lake, just a few miles to the south of Rio Chama RV Park. The 6,000-acre lake is open to sailing, kayaking, and boating (as long as there’s no wake), and is particularly popular for catching trout. About a 90-minute drive from the RV campground, the sand dunes at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains tower up to 750 feet tall.
