Loved El Morro
0 % of users found this review helpful
If you love the high desert, wild flowers, history, native american culture, the counter culture and meeting the locals, El Morro RV Park and it's Ancient Way Cafe is a great place. The staff is friendly, the food at the cafe delicious and creative (apple pie whith chiles and pine nuts anyone?)and the cabins are cozy. I wish we could have stayed a week, there's so much that's unique to see near by. I will say that the extra beds in the cabin lofts are most suitable to older kids and agile adults. As a kid I would have loved it but I was perfectly happy with the regular beds on the "first floor". I loved meeting the cast of characters back to the land newbies, artists, bohemians, settlers decendants and Navaho and Zuni who work here or stop by for a meal, ice cream or a beer. I took early morning and moon-lit hikes up the trail right behind our cabin and found stunning wildflowers, rockformations, fossils, wildlife and beautiful veiws (flash light, hiking shoes and camera a must!) It's about a mile to the wonderful El Morro Monument- a mesa with the remains of an ancient pueblo, a miraculous year round pool at the base of cliffs, petraglyphs and grafiti carve by conquestadores and early American explores. A mile in the other direction is a unique restraunt opend by an enterprizing young chef of Navajo decent who spent several years in Europe studying cooking. A short drive away are easy hikes to an ice cave, a chain of small volcanos and the amazing El Malpais "badlands". Also the Zuni nation is near by with feast days, and Zuni-led tours.

Nice stop near El Morro National Monument. I was very comfortable in my cabin (they're bigger than they look) and even though the cafe was closed the manager got me a wonderful piece of apple, green chile, and pinon pie for my dinner. Cabins have nice towels, good coffee and tea, microwave, and refrigerator. I loved birdwatching from my little porch.

This is a great spot for visiting the El Morro and El Malpais areas. We've stayed here twice now, and will plan to be back next time we visit the area.

rotted milk in the fridge and they claim sleeps 4. maybe 2 downstairs but the loft was too small for two more. We actually left that night and did not stay. The staff seemed friendly.
