Upon arrival I produced my Good Sam card and the three woman on duty at the day spa didn't know what to do with it, therefore we did not get the discount. No cable, and no stations available with antenna. Verizon data and phone worked fine. 50% long term old trailers, dirt roads on upper and lower levels are rutted from previous rains. Address is incorrect on their website: correct address is 1318 Riverside Road. Run down, but not much else close by. We'd stay again, but just overnight. - DEBandVINCE

Park is narrow and slopes downward from the highway which makes this park quieter than most that close to a highway. Good wifi, modern showers with plenty of hot water and average pressure. Pathways are dirt/gravel mix which can be dusty. Overall a nice place to stay as long as you are not looking for a resort. - hmthomas1

We stayed at Oh Kay RV Park 9/24 - 9/27/07. We chose Oh Kay based on the recommendation of some members on RV.NET. It is not listed in the TL directory. We were looking for a place between Santa Fe and Taos to use as a base while we visited the area. We first felt something might be wrong when the clerk at the registration desk wrote a phone number on the receipt. She said it was the number of the police dispatcher in case we had any problems during our stay there. Then one of the long-term park residents came up to us while we were setting up and told us to make sure we parked our truck to make access to the gas tank difficult. "They like to take gas around here." This gave us a very uneasy feeling during our entire stay. The park itself is badly in need of maintenance. Some of the sites are so full of holes and ruts they are unusable. There apparently once was a playground but it is totally overgrown with weeds. There are some permanent residents and some of their units are complete eyesores. One in the next row from us has large sheets of rusted metal laying against the sides as wheel covers. Sites are supposed to be pull-through but they are only about 30 feet deep. Our TT is 29.5 ft. long and it filled the site. The only place to park the tow vehicle is next to the TT so we can't open the awning. We can't report on the bath house because they must keep it locked and require a $5 deposit for the key. We used our own facilities. To sum up, if it becomes a choice between Oh Kay and a WalMart parking lot, go for the WalMart!! - JimCathy

This place must have been improved since the last reviews because I had none of the complaints that others have made. The name of the game here is convenience and value. This is a bare-bones, parking lot style RV park with no restrooms, no showers, no amenities. The sites are level, gravel, and enormous. You can easily park a big rig, a couple cars, and maybe even a utility trailer and still have room for your lawn chairs within your site. Every site is FHU and the utilities are properly situated and work well. Other reviewers complained of weeds. There is typical desert scrub, but nothing that I would complain about. Perhaps the landscape maintenance has been improved since the last reviews which were over a year ago. My dog's not fussy. He's fine with gravel and scrub. Some others may not like it. There is a gas station with a well-stocked convenience store and a Subway right next door. There is also a free shuttle bus service to the two large casinos just a mile or so away. Yes, it's right along the highway, and yes, you will get some road noise, but that also makes it very convenient to get anywhere in the area. At just short of $30 per night with Good Sam, it's a heck of a deal in my opinion. The wi-fi was often slow and sporadic, but there was a strong Verizon signal. We are making it our base to visit Santa Fe, Taos, Los Alamos, and the surrounding area which is rich in places to go and things to see and do. Wouldn't hesitate to come back. - Pdxjoanne

Gravel sites with tall weeds, goatheads, and red ants. Mostly full-timers. A few junk campers looked to be abandoned. Good location for visiting Santa Fe but they need to hire someone to landscape. Do not bring pets here because of conditions. - Bat Rider

Park is conveniently located between Santa Fe, Bandolier and Los Alamos which are all great places to visit. The water and electricity all worked well. Spaces are wide and allow enough area to park your vehicle. There are no trees at all so your satellite TV will work. Check in staff was friendly and efficient.
The Cons: Other reviews have said it all. This is primarily a gravel lot, covered with weeds and goatheads with no ambiance at all. Weeds were up to the steps of the RV, as well as up to the bench of the picnic table. The internet, although included, was weak and inconsistent. Generally, although it would connect, nothing would load. Nothing. Thankfully, there is a McDonalds across the highway when we had business on the internet that needed to be taken care of. NO TV reception over your antenna. No cable available.
We would not stay here again. In fact, we would've left after the first night if we had not already paid for our full stay. Way overpriced for what services are provided. - themom3

This is about the best RV park to stay in for both Los Alamos and Bandelier National Monument. Yes, it's just a parking lot, but the sites are large and the facilities clean. There's a dog run so your pets can go off leash and play. It's easy to self pay. There is WiFi available and it works very well. The nights are quiet, so there isn't a problem sleeping. If you're going to Bandelier, the shuttle service is awesome and runs on time. Los Alamos is near by, too, so you can easily see the museums, etc. there. We stayed here twice in September and will do so again if we return to Los Alamos/Bandelier. - Bobbi1948

There is a 14 day maximum stay. No attendant. First come first serve.
This is a large asphalt parking lot with 30/50 amp service. Standalone fresh water/ dump station. No site is level, but we did not have any problem leveling our motorhome. Bandelier National Monument requires you ride the shuttle and it stops at the RV park. There is a Smith's grocery within walking distance and Bradbury museum in Los Alamos is cool with regular activities going on. Our Verizon hotspot gave us 5 bars of 4G, and we were able to pick up all major TV networks from Albuquerque with our over-the-air antenna. - waywardwind

There were few other campers at this lot behind the Visitor's Center. You pay at an automated kiosk, which was a little confusing. The price was right for electric only. You can fill up with clean water and there is a dump site. It has no charm but is good for a night. No tables or fire rings. - garlina

This is a beautiful, quiet place to stay while enjoying the trails and sights of this marvelous park. Free shuttle service to the various sites one might wish to go. Plenteous hiking trails and wonderful visitor's center. Camp sites cam be a bit sloped, requiring leveling your rig. - W Davidson

Three loops to choose from. We found a spot in the C loop big enough for our 29' trailer and truck. Drydocking only with a dump station on the way out and potable water available in select locations. Pretty area amongst the trees, canyons, and ridgelines. - Bandanna Man

This is a great national monument campground and park. Nicely spaced sites, although many were very unlevel. No problem with our 30 ft Class A Motorhome. Typical National Park campground with flush toilets but no hookups. Dump station and water is available. Great views of surrounding area. Verizon service was fair at best.
Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface is asphalt and features a fire ring and picnic table. - Blowin-the-Wind

The only reason to stay here is to enjoy the hot springs. The sites are small, so make sure your rig will fit. You have to pay $18.00 to use the hot springs, and this includes use of the showers and towels. Bring your own lock and use one of the lockers, or extra $$ to rent from them. Water and electric at most sites, dump station on the way out. Had a great stay and will likely stay again when we need a soak. - Mep-Adp

We stayed here to be close to Taos with maybe having the option to soak and do some fancy dining. We got our 35' fifth wheel in spot #11, not that much room to spare though. Most sites were very small, some had shrubs to separate sites, but some didn't. They have a list of sites and what will fit in them; check that out if you have a big rig and make a reservation in advance. There are porta johns in the RV lot; I did not use. I did use the rest rooms in the lobby once or twice though...I am pretty sure they were much nicer! You need a code to open a gate to get to the RV parking which seemed unnecessary; we are pretty much in the middle of nowhere. However outside the gate (twds the spa) is the lot for employees and for locals who hike the trails. Lots of great hiking right from the park. Upon checking in, I was disappointed to have to ask for a map of the grounds and a schedule for the yoga. Then had to go back the next morning to get a map of the hiking trails. I can't say that the map and trail markings were accurate, but we didn't get lost either. As far as I know, there was no map of the rv spots; we found ours all by ourselves. We ended up not taking advantage of their spa or yoga etc We did partake in the wine bar; prices were reasonable considering the location and atmosphere. The service was great. Other dining locations are a short walk to the main road: pizza, taos trail inn steakhouse, cafes. You have to go to the lobby or to the wine bar to use wi-fi. I felt a bit out of place sitting in a spa atmosphere doing my 'business' on my laptop. - MichelleKry

We came here to use the hot springs. The campground, while certainly not top rate, was a plus. Everything is dirt and fairly level, with lots of trees and brush and good space between the individual sites. Only outhouses are available unless you walk the quarter mile or so to the spa facilities. There you will find a nice restaurant and bar and a lobby in which you can get WiFi. Shower facilities are available but only if you pay the additional expense to get in to the pool area. Maps for the many hiking/biking trails are at the front desk. This is a wonderful campground for walking your pets. If you want to use the dump you have to get someone from the spa to unlock it for you. - Two old birders

We cannot recommend this park as a place to stay over one night. It is better suited to people wanting to hike trails. There were only 8 RV sites with hookups. Three were vacant. Two of these did not have acceptable working electric outlets. The one we found was not level and positioned one's sleepy head 20 feet from a busy noisy road. It is difficult to find with poor directions. No staff available after 4:30 pm. - W Davidson

Reserved Site 49. Web site indicates site 49 is an RV site with no hookups. Actually is tent only and can not get RV in. No one on site during the week due to Labor Shortage and no refund available. Lost $52 due to in accurate information on the web site. Not happy. - Coleywhite

Campground has about 10 spaces with lights and water. The night we stayed Saturday night, half of those spaces were empty but reserved. The people never showed up. We stayed in overflow spot at bottom of the hill. We could smell the cars coming down the hill brakes overheating. New Mexico reservation system is confusing to out of staters. There was a wedding reception at the pavilion. Tthey had a lot of fun well into the night. If we were in lights and water spot it would be OK, but othe wise, I think we'll pass. Nice view up the hill of Santa Fe. - Jim Lee

Despite what Reserve America site says, rigs over 40' are going to be tight on roads and in sites. We scratched the coach a couple of times. The tree trimming on the turns could really use some attention.
That said, the campground is worth the effort. Deep in a forest with lots of hiking and areas to explore. The dogs loved it. The patio, table and fire ring setup was great.
Water to fill a tank is available near camp ground entrance, but the camp host has to turn it on. No dump station in the campground, but one is nearby.
Do not follow Google Maps, there are turns you just can't make. Only turn onto Artist Road from Bishops Lodge Road/NM590. - bobcovey

This campground is in close proximity to Taos. Though close to the access road, it was quiet and well-kept with level, easily accessible sites. The hosts suggested that we hike the trail that went off from the campground which turned out to be the highlight of our stay for our boys! We suggest not taking 567 north out of the gorge unless you have a truck with 4-wheel drive that can handle a serious climb in gravel (though if you do, the view is spectacular!). - KyKampers

Truly spectacular Bureau of Land Management (BLM) campground just a short drive south of Taos, New Mexico. Rio Grand River across the street. Spotty cell service and poor Mi-Fi. The nicest BLM campground I have ever seen. We stayed for a week, and I could have easily stayed a month. Long pull-through sites. Rate is based on Access pass. - bingberg

A very nice park. The park host was friendly and helpful. Very quiet. The Rio Grande River is just across road. Great for star gazing after dark. Will be going back. - Arty
