Fairly short sites so big rigs may not fit in many of the sites, but no problem for most RV’s. No electricity or water. Lots of TV channels available on antenna (over 30). We found a level site, but many may require more than the normal amount of pads. Great park for hiking. We hiked the main loop before it started snowing. Gorgeous after a snow! We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we visited, only one of three loops was open. The campground is outdated and cramped (built in the 30's) and the majority of the sites are angled the wrong direction and the roadway is tightly hugged by overhanging junipers, making backing a trailer into many of the sites impossible. One of two of the sites can accommodate a ~40 rig if you are skilled and patient. The host mentioned he spent an hour helping a semi rig with a ~40 5th wheel back into one particular spot. About a third of the sites can handle a travel trailer with a box length up to maybe 30'. This is all in reference to the "B" loop. That being said, the entire camping area is being closed June 1, 2010 through Fall 2010 to be completely reconstructed. The host said the new campground will feature larger, properly angled sites and quite a few pull through sites as well. Otherwise it's a very pleasant location. Camping is technically $24 ($12 park entrance + $12 camping). There campground does have a dump station and potable water. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful forested Park Service campground ,not originally designed for large rigs. Narrow road meanders through campground, with lots of low overhanging branches. Short and medium sites that are not all level. Need to drive through first to find an adequate space and use a spotter to park. 40' motorhomes only fit on a few spaces and may not be able to use all the slides. Best access to Bandelier National Monument with great cliff dwellings and hiking trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This CG in Bandelier National Monument is close to all the archaeological sites at the monument as well as historic sites at Los Alamos. The CG is basic National Park design. Sites vary from many short and medium back-ins to a few adequate for a 40' rig. All sites are well separated and private but not very level. Generator hours limited. A dump station is nearby. You are in a cedar & juniper woodland here so those with allergies take note! Nighttime skies are magnificent and wildlife (coyotes, deer, etc) abound. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a county owned park behind the visitor center that offers all pull-through spaces. It has 50 amp power and free Internet but no other hookups. There is a dump station and shared water hookup in the park. Restrooms are clean and free shuttle buses are offered from the park to the national monument. Fees are paid at a vending machine that accepts credit and debit cards only. There is a very small pet area. A major supermarket is across the street and a propane filling station at the Mobil a block away. This is a good stopover for those wanting to visit Bandelier but needing an electric site, as none are available at the monument. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
