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

We stayed here last year when they were still getting the landscaping done. It was great then, but this year it's absolutely beautiful! They still have a little more work to do to finish things up, but that wouldn't stop us from staying here again. The biggest addition for us this year is the new dog park. Lots of space for the pups and beautiful well maintained grass. Our only suggestion would be to add a couple of benches for the 'people' to sit. The clubhouse is finished now and is one of the nicest we've seen. We attended a cooking demonstration with one of the chefs from the resort and were very impressed. There are two pickle ball courts now along with horseshoe pits and a very nice putting green. There are two fire pits, one at the clubhouse and the other up near the bath house and hot tub. The bath house was kept clean and the laundry room was excellent too.
The only 'negative' we saw while here is the 'Executive' Section (sites 801-805) are not quite finished with landscaping. Those sites were quite muddy and had lots of weeds. Not worth the extra fee yet, but soon! We camped here in a 42' coach with tow vehicle. You might need to unhitch the tow (if you have a motorhome), to give you more maneuverability when you get to your site. The hookups are toward the back, so you'll want to park your towed at the front of your site. - Cairnsrock

Loved the setting. The landscape is gorgeous and all facilities were immaculate! Wifi needs some work it's sketchy. Great placement of all hookups!
The hot tub is DELIGHT - but it doesn't open until 10 am. Weekly rates are discounted which is nice.
The wine & cheese party on Thursday nights is great, but they ran out of wine twice and we couldn't bring our own :(
If there's an intention to limit the beverage servings it'd be nice to just get a ticket or two to limit the number of drinks per person, as it would set & satisfy the expectations.
Overall, we really LOVED our stay and will return again next year. - Liz Wilson

Fairly new park. Landscaping is still growing in, but already beautiful. Spacious sites with very young trees. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean restrooms, showers and laundry. 2 new Pickleball courts. Easy access to interior roads and to sites. Some complimentary entertainment at the clubhouse. Prairie Dog town next to my site. Highly recommend and would camp there again. - toothdk

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
