There are so many regional attractions near Enchanted Trails RV Park, and the hardest part of planning your visit will be squeezing everything in. The most important thing to know, however, is that there are many popular festivals throughout the year and you will have to book early if you want a campsite during any of the following:
- The Albuquerque International Balloon Festival in October
- The New Mexico State Fair in September
- Santa Fe Indian Market in August
- Gathering of Nations in April
Other area attractions include:
- 3 extinct volcanoes
- Sandia Peak Tramway
- Indian Pueblo Cultural Center
- Farmers’ markets when the Hatch Chilies are in season
