Red River—New Mexico’s premiere mountain playground

Many Red River vacation rentals started life as mining cabins, when this New Mexico mountain resort was a booming prospecting town.

It was only when the Gold Rush dried up that the mountain playground we know today was born. Visitors flock here for camping, hiking, and mountain biking in the balmy summer months, while winter-sports enthusiasts make Red River vacation rentals their home base for skiing, snowboarding, and cross-country excursions.
