Memorial Day Weekend at Lake Conchas

Lake Conchas State Park, New Mexico

We’ve just spent 4 nights at Lake Conchas in northern New Mexico.  We last visited Conchas on the return from Texas about 4 weeks ago.  Once again we’re parked in Bell Point, on the cliff side site #19 with friends in sites #21, #22 and #18.

We departed Danver on Wednesday for a quick overnight at Pueblo Lake SP. We enjoyed electric only back-in sites #46 & #47 with great views over the lake to the south.  On Thursday, with miserable winds from the South, we crossed Raton Pass to Las Vegas and then across highway 104 for about 70 miles of rough, windy road.  Perhaps a detour down highway 84 between Las Vegas and Santa Rosa would be a bit easier drive.

After a windy evening Thursday, we enjoyed high temperatures in the 80’s and lows in the 50’s each night.  On Friday we had a brief thunderstorm that produced a bit of rain and caused cancellation of our evening campfire.  It should be noted that only a few sites at Conchas have fire rings.  #21 and #29 are probably the best sites with fire pits.  The downside to #21 is the proximity of the dumpster.  With the campground full nearly all weekend, this dumpster was pretty smelly by half way through the weekend.

We’re currently enroute to Taos, NM where we’ll spend one night at a favorite RV park, Taos Valley.  More from Taos…
