Our first week back full time RV living was spent just a short drive from where we had been staying the past 6 months. One hour south of Pagosa Springs, CO is the little town of Chama, NM.
This might sound familiar to our followers as our cabin was just 20 minutes from this town so needless to say we know the area well.
We decided that a shake down week would be a good way to start things off and get out any bugs we might have in the rig. So we stayed at Twin Rivers RV Park in Chama.
Twin Rivers is family owned and operated right on the corner of Highways 84/64 behind the Chevron station. It’s a small RV park compared to others in the area but it was safe, convenient and inexpensive. Plus we secured a last minute reservation for the Labor Day weekend. Score!
Pros of this RV park:
- Super friendly staff
- Pet friendly
- Inexpensive (we paid $22/night with the 7th night free)
- Excellent location. Close to downtown, grocery store and gas stations
- Decent site. Level and as we were on an end fairly large.
- Clean (but older) bath houses and laundromat
- Decent Verizon LTE signal – 4 bars
Cons of this RV park:
- Close to highway so there is a bit of traffic noise mostly during the day
- It was pretty full so we didn’t get a shady spot but we didn’t make reservations until last minute
- An older park and some of the connections are in random places but it didn’t affect our site
Honestly, I can’t think of too many cons for this park. The owners Sonia and Ernest are really the best! They are very friendly and will always try to accommodate you the best they can.
Yes there are nicer RV parks in Chama but if you are looking for reasonable rates and convenient location then Twin Rivers can’t be beat!
And the good news about our shakedown trip was we had no issues with the Avion. And the bonus? We found out our AC unit works! We didn’t know if it would until we could get to a 30 amp plug.
All in all it was a very nice week spent in Chama. The park is quiet and mostly filled with people living here full time for the summer. The park is closed during the winter months. If you need a quick stop over or want an extended stay in the area, be sure to tell Sonia and Ernest that we sent you!
