5 Parks near Guadalupita, New Mexico
Jun 2016 - $18.00
Overall a good experience. E&W sites (8 total) very tight. Either slide outs or awning but cannot accommodate both. Beautiful location in a valley with a small river stocked with fish. Bathhouses very clean and up to date. Previous campers have left more trash and debris than I am used to. Dump station at far end of park on an incline, not level. Quiet and family oriented. Church group was here during our stay and we barely heard them (lots of kids). Park hosts were on top of business. A fire about 1 mile away was a concern but they passed the OK as soon as all was under control. Winding roads getting here and out, kept the speed down and no shoulders either. Backing into our site was difficult due to a poorly placed sign. Tow vehicle must disconnect due to limited length of lot. Plenty of room to park tow vehicle away from site. We would consider returning.
$18 nightly fee includes $14 camping fee and $4 Reserve America fee. We are learning that many NM SPs have First Come, First Serve sites which do not require a reservation. RA fees can add up quickly if you reserve every visit. Food for thought.
Regarding the site we were given regarding
lot length, tow vehicle must disconnect due to limited depth. I don't know what big Class As do. - SemperParatus

Smaller sites but adequate. Nice and quiet. No verizon service at campground. Dump station was closed as bridge washed out. Nice and secluded in a valley between mountains. Road to north of campground towards Angel Fire has about seven miles which is very narrow. Watch the road ahead in case you have to stop to let oncoming traffic by. - fander

We camped here for two nights in April, with parts of the camping still closed. Mostly large open full hook-up places with great views of meadows, lakes and forests. Plus some wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! - Eisenga

WOW! Stayed at Angel Fire for 3 weeks - wanted to stay all summer. This is like no other. Good Sam rated a 10/10/10. You may find others you like but this is truly an RV Resort w/ nice amenities. The view is spectacular, with day temps in the high 70's and nite temps in the high 40's, AM is calm w/ blue sky and PM w/ nice breeze.
Only in its 2nd year they are finishing the landscaping on the unopened sites. There are 3 - 1st class buildings on the property. The registration building has two family restrooms w/ showers, a very nice sitting area w/ 60" TV and a limited inventory of RV supplies. The second building is the activities lodge where you could easily entertain 200 people w/ 3 - 80" TVs. There are 3 fireplaces, 1 in the lobby, an LP fire pit on patio #1 and a wood burning fireplace on patio #2. The third building is the laundry building with 10 washers and dryers that use credit cards. Laundry is pricey at $2.50 for both wash and dry - in town its $2.25. The laundry building has men's, women's and family restrooms each w/ huge clean showers. There is also a Jacuzzi that seats 10 and an LP fire pit w/ surround seating.
Roads are paved, all sites are pull thru w/ level concrete pads, large picnic table at each site on concrete and 40 feet between sites. Put your trash out in the AM and they pick it up. A large grass dog park, 2 pickle ball courts, 2 horse shoe pits and putting green. The park is owned by the ski resort and RVer's have access to the Ski Lodge amenities. Ask at the RV registration desk for free ski lift tickets. Staff are very friendly, always available and will go out of their way to help you. There is live music twice a week and every Thursday a wine & cheese reception. Three miles outside of Angel Fire past the golf course there is a stocked lake with paddle and row boats, kayaks and a small fee to fish. Very nice grocery store and restaurants in town. - Camino Travelers

Very nice RV resort style park with concrete pads and mostly pull-through sites. Everything is new and growing and will be nice when all the trees mature. No swimming pool for kids, just a hot tub with max capacity of 7 for the entire park. Very well manicured and putt-putt area. Nice dog run and pickleball courts and large club house for special events. No fire rings at the campsites or grills so bring your own if you want to cook outside. Picnic tables were a little out of the way for me...would have been better to have placed them a little further back (just my opinion). Nice views of the mountains all around and of the ski slopes. Probably would not stay here again although its a very nice park. Would rather stay up in the trees or mountains or river. - Musickman911

Absolutely one of the finest parks in the country. Beautiful setting, awesome fenced and turfed dog park. Still finishing the back area, but all large wide concrete sites, paved roads and beautiful landscaping. More to come, it will soon be very hard to get a reservation. Roads to it are also good, not a lot of climbing, 2 lane but easily managed. - TexasJanelle

It's a pretty small park, owned by a nice couple. There are only two bathroom/shower combos, which are kept clean. It has a cabin attached to it. There is no club house or other amenities, but they do have Wifi. The sites are mostly back in, with some pull throughs without sewer. The couples we met there come for a few months or the summer. They have good 30amp and 50amp service; good water quality. Pets are welcome although there is no dog park. Like I said, it's a very small park.
There was vacant land all around the park and behind the storage facility there was a dirt road going up into the hills where I was able to let the dogs loose. There are a ton of prairie dogs all over and they loved to chase them. The sites were fairly close together but level with a little grassy area and behind the sites a common ground with picnic tables where the guests met to talk. - Kerch Family

WiFi never worked and shower is coin operated which is very inconvenient. 1 toilet, 1 shower for men in entire campground. No fires allowed. Nice enough people but I paid $40 to camp for amenities which were not satisfactory. - adamant

Nice owners. This park is for sale due to ill health. Small park. Poor WiFi. Low water pressure. Gravel roads and sites somewhat level. We stayed here a week and paid $236.50 with escapees discount. - milodog

The setting is wonderful and the camp hosts are first rate. The rest is disappointing. The entry is rough. The wifi is inconvenient at best. The restrooms/showers are cramped and dated. Apparently the owners/hosts cannot receive email for the park. Overall this park is in serious decline. Major maintenance is wanting. If you are self contained OK, the utilities are good. It is convenient to Taos and the area. One big plus is you are not packed in, without shade, like other parks in the area. There is some noise from Hwy 64 and more from the road on the west side of the park (in the day). - gumper

We saw this RV park on our way to Angel Fire, NM. This is a very quaint park with gorgeous views. We enjoyed bird watching & seeing the elk graze in the pasture next to the park. Wonderful friendly camp hosts. We had a very peaceful and relaxing time. Wi-Fi worked great. Great place to stay. We were only able to camp here one night but we will most definitely return. - Happy RVers with 4 legged kids

Don't go by the website. And good luck making reservations. Called the park 7 times, left 2 messages, and sent an email: got no reply. Park is very old and very rundown. Needs a LOT of care. Benches as well as fire rings were pretty much unusable. Sites not level. Sites were so close together we could not put out our awning without hitting the trailer slide out next to us. Power was pretty weak; breaker kept tripping even though we were not close to 30 amp. Water is good, and good pressure. No cell phone, Wi-Fi was very iffy. Air card did not work either. Setting was pretty and it could be a nice park, with a LOT of work. Even though it says big rig friendly, I would not agree. We will not stay here again. - Native Texan

This place has an excellent setting, and would get a rating of '10' based on that alone, but the logistics of the RV park are not well thought out. Hook-ups at three of the sites are on the wrong side and hook-ups at the other two sites are located so that rigs need to be parked out in a car parking area. When we arrived, an RV in space 20 hooked up to space 19's utilities causing us in space 18 to have no hook-ups. We notified the staff, some of which were friendly and some not. The maintenance person told us that we were to share. We were even still charged for a full hook-up even though we were sharing. If the hook-ups were relocated this place would get a 9. We gave it a 5 for the redeeming quality of the mountain setting. - je23dr13

The folks at Sipapu Lodge who handle the RV site reservations are very friendly and accommodating. But they seem to be clueless as to the problems with the sites. The web site emphasizes snow activities, disc golf and fishing, but shows no pictures of the RV sites. For this reason one has no heads-up of what to expect when considering the campground. Yes, the woods and stream are very nice, but it's difficult to enjoy them for several reasons. There are five sites, crammed into a space that is suitable for only three. Space 20 puts your door right at the back of a rental building, and has no water hookup. All the sites have the hookups on the wrong side; if you're not in a motorhome that can pull in forward, you have to run your electric cable and hoses under the RV and past the front door. We endured a weekend elbow-to-elbow with partying neighbors and five loose dogs who roamed around threatening our dog and digging in the trash. Two of the sites share a fire pit and picnic table; the fire pits are deep steel rings with no ventilation holes, so the fire burns low and smoky. I asked about the advertised Wi-Fi connection, but was told it wasn't working. We made the best of the situation, but won't go back unless the RV sites are completely rebuilt. - nmroadrunner
