      Update from Texas Assn of Campground Owners re: Evacuees   08/28/17

      Good morning, There are now at least 18 privately owned and operated campgrounds and RV parks across Texas that are accepting evacuees. The attached news release, updated from the one the association issued yesterday, includes the names and contact info for the parks. Consumers can also do their own research to identify parks with RV spaces and rental cabins at www.TexasCampgrounds.com and www.TexasCabinRentals.net. Please contact Brian Schaeffer, executive director and CEO of the Texas Association of Campground Owners, on his cell phone at (817) 307-0129 for any questions. We will continue to update this release over the weekend based on the feedback we receive from campgrounds and RV parks across Texas. Many thanks for including our information in your reports yesterday. We appreciate it. Sincerely, Jeff Crider

I like the Enchanted Trails RV Park on the west side of Albuquerque. It is next door to Camping World, close to the Interstate interchange and easy to get to. The camp ground has a nice store and laundry room. It is not far from Old Town. As I recall, it is a Passport America park. There is also a flying J, just one or two exits west.

While in Albuquerque, take time to ride the Tram to the top of Sandia. There is a neat restaurant up there with good food. Go up in the late PM so you can see the sunset from up there and then the lights of the city come on. If you make a reservation at the Restaurant for dinner, then you will get a discount on the tram ride up. The restaurant's name is "High Finance"!

There is a Rattlesnake museum in Old Town, if you like such. A very good Native American museum in the Old Town area also. There is a nice Museum of Atomic Energy near one of the main gates into the Sandia Labs/Air Force base. I believe that it is on Eubank Ave, just a little south of I40.

In the Enchanted Trails lot is a great LPG provider. He does LPG repairs, installs/services satellite systems. Good at many things.

Go across the frwy to Central, follow it down to Rio Grande River, there is the Monte Carlo Steak House (great prime rib on Fri (see review on Dives, Diners & Driveins). Across the river is the Artbortium and Old Town.

If the Village doesn't fit, you might like the Isleta RV park at the South end of Abq by I25. It is adjacent to a Rail Runner station that will take you to central Abq and Santa Fe. About a mile away is the casino. There is a fishing pond at the RV park for the kids. The roads in the park are just ok.

North of Abq, also on I25 in Bernalillo is a KOA. They have movies and popcorn in the summer for the kids. Good size pull thurs and WiFi. The owner is a pretty guy. Also close by to a Rail Runner station. Great restaurants within a mile (try The Range).

Would like campgrounds with full hookup, if possible, and things to do in the area; any recommendations would be appreciated. Also, in the Albuquerque area.

It has been a number of years since we were in the Carsbad area but we were there to go to the Caverns. We stayed at a campground at White City. We then drove the car to the Caverns. It had full hookups. Sorry I can't remember anything more but it was an ok place to stay. The Carsbad Caverns are awesome.
