Hi all. We will be traveling west on I-40, heading for FlagStaff, in our 31 ft. Class 'C' pulling a Toad. We want to stop a few days at
either Ute or Conchas Lake for rest and bike riding. Which would you'all suggest. Just need 30 Amp and water and dump station. We don't care for muddy water.

Conchas for the beauty, and Ute for the convenience. To add, if you went to Ute only it would be great.
However ... I would invest three days at Conchas.

Conchas has a 'boil water' advisory listed on their website.

Either is fine, additionally Santa Rosa Lake state park is in the area and much closer to I-40 if that matters. Maybe on the way back you could stop and try the lake you didn't choose the first time around, every one has different ideals for what they prefer and I don't try to suggest or presume their tastes. We enjoy all the state parks here in NM, roomy sites, many with tables and shelters, all for $14 a night, definitely a go to for us when RVing close to home.

We will be staying at Conchas Lake for our first time in June. It will be on our way as we will go on up to Las Vegas, NM and Taos before going on to Vallecito Campground and Silverton.

We have passed by Conchas a few times on NM 104, but not in the last few years. I recall 104 as a pretty "lonely road."

I looked at Santa Rosa lake on Google Earth and it looks like a big Mud hole. Is it normally muddy water or was this just when they happened to take the picture? I'm really looking for the cleanest water. Thanks.

We spent a few days at Santa Rosa SP. It wasn't a mudhole while we were there. It'll depend on the current rains in the area.
