NM State Staff
Welcome to the New Mexico Good Sam Web site. We are Marilyn & Rick Smaw, the New Mexico State Directors for years 2015 & 2016.
We would like to invite you to our State Samboree September 9 - 13 at Enchanted Trails RV Park in Albuquerque, NM, located next to Camping World. Please check our calendar for other happenings around our state. At the bottom of our home page you will note that we have a link: View Fall Gazette. The Gazette is a newsletter with articles submitted by all chapters of their doings throughout the year and in many cases what else may be going on with their chapter activities. Perhaps you may want to join them in one of their excursions. The Gazette is published in the spring and fall.
New Mexico is a high desert area where we have 4 seasons. In the north we have good ski resorts and several RV resorts along with many choice fishing waters. In the south we have hot springs in Truth or Consequences, Deming has the Duck Races and Santa Rosa has the "Big Hole". This is a freshwater pool more than 80 ft. deep and it attracts divers from around the world. It is where many get their certification and where the New Mexico State Police dive team trains. Roswell also has the Martian Museum and has an Alien celebration every summer around the 4th of July. And we have the White Sands, where the 1st atomic bomb was tested. The trinity site is opened twice a year for visitors.
In October, Albuquerque has the Balloon Fiesta where there are hundreds of hot air balloons in the sky. The Fiesta for 2015 will be held October 3 - 11. RV accommodations are available. Visit their website at www.balloonfiesta.com.
We have 18 chapters throughout the state. These chapters go camping once a month and also like to take longer trips to other states. If there are any Good Samers out there who would like to know more joining a local chapter near you, please get in touch with us and we can give you the name of the chapter/chapters nearest you.
