Visiting Albuquerque in an RV?
May I suggest you consider making…
Hidden Valley RV Resort in Tijeras, New Mexico YOUR “home base” for your stay.
Hidden Valley RV Resort is located literally two minutes off I-40 (exit 178), on the side of a hill, and despite its convenient proximity to the Interstate (and the Mother Road Rt. 66), the park’s setting is secluded and quiet.
I stayed here for a time both before and after repairs to my 5th wheel by Rocky Mountain RV in Albuquerque. Incidentally, I highly recommend their repair department – highly professional, and attentive to detail!
Hidden Valley is situated literally 15 minutes from downtown Albuquerque. Driving to Hidden Valley from the city, the first thing you notice is a significant climb towards – and that is a good thing! Tijeras is comfortably cooler than Albuquerque! Hidden Valley is located near some great things to do –
The Turquoise Trail (Rt 14) is just minutes west of Hidden Valley – this is the OLD Rt. 66 stretch (pre-1937) to Santa Fe. Don’t worry, the road has been improved since then! Just minutes up Rt 14, you’ll find “Coffee At Dawn” – a “homey” coffee shop with a friendly crew offering at least 5 different brews each morning! Cedar Crest, the first town you encounter along the Turquoise Trail also has several quality eating establishments – offering everything from healthy salads to ribs and tap beers. Need a market? There is one of some size there too!
Farther up the trail, you’ll encounter the road up to Sandia Peak. Your first “attraction” along the mountain road is Tinkertown. (Click the link to see what Tinkertown is.) Continuing up the access road, you will pass numerous hiking trails before reaching Sandia Peak Ski Area, a ski area in the winter, a mountain biking center in the summer – with a great cafe and high altitude views, and even a tram to ride to the top of the 10,300 ft. mountain peak!
Returning to Hidden Valley, the resort itself has all the amenities you would expect. You can see details here on Hidden Valley RV Resort’s new Facebook page.

Just a few notes about what to expect when visiting…
- the full time employees are very friendly and helpful, they take care to insure you are positioned in the best spot for your rig
- most sites are pull thru, but the backin sites are wider
- because the park is on a hill, your experience will be different from “cookie cutter” parks! (bring wood or other tools to level your rig)
- the park actually has a library – stocked with books, videos, games and information travelers will truly appreciate
