12 RV Parks near La Cueva, New Mexico
Jul 2016 - $5.00
No hookups or dump station. Pit toilets only. There are 4 loops and the weekends are busy, especially in the summer. It's a popular location for hiking and fishing. The falls are a moderate hike over a mile from the campground. McCauley Warm Springs are over 2 miles away via hiking trails only. Several fishing accesses within driving distance, but not at the campground. Lots of space between sites and plenty of shade. Camp hosts really keep this campground CLEAN. There are faucets that provide drinking water, but they are not threaded. - Terry P

This is a big-rig-friendly campground. Plenty of spots for our 32' triple-slideout travel trailer. The area is fairly heavily forested so solar power requires a lot of moving the panels throughout the day.
My only complaints are lack of threaded water spigots and no dump station. You'll need to fill up your tank before arrival. But there is water available for filling jugs, etc. Trash dumpsters are severely spilling over for some reason but otherwise it's clean and well maintained.
The sites are well laid out and for the most part are nicely spread out from one another. Sunday through Wednesday there's been no sound other than birds, thunder, and the breeze.
Some sites have a weak but usable Verizon 3G signal, others have a good 4G signal. Fellow campers with AT&T have no signal. Two years ago we had no T-Mobile signal (can't speak for present day but it's likely the same).
There is one special spot that has sewer, electric, and water. It appears to be a secondary host spot, but is currently not used by a host and is available if you're the lucky contestant. - Brad & Angela

This a wonderful place for camping while you enjoy the activities in the Jemez Mountains, such as fishing, hiking, and enjoying the hot springs. It's an easy hike to the waterfalls from here. The campground is large, with several loops of campsites. There is plenty of room to maneuver your rig. They are planning to upgrade some of the sites in 2013. Reserved sites are available.

While this campground is tucked into a lovely Ponderosa pine forest, the mountain view and meadow views as advertised are lacking. The mountain view is the side of the mountain the site is set on and the meadow overlook includes a church, parking lot, trucks and farm equipment. The campground property has large storage containers, garage and more vehicles & equipment. Its located close to highway, so some traffic noise but not too distracting - surprisingly quiet. We had a few site choices when we arrived - we chose the front section near the highway it was a better location than the views of the storage container and garage. Water pressure was weak. Wifi was non-existent. Electric surged quite often at all hours of day & night. We were happy that we had a surge protector. A bit of a challenge maneuvering our truck when another trailer parked in next spot down hill from us. Full hook up and views for $33 was pricey especially since we did not receive what was advertised - campground website makes this place out to be more than what you get.
Will stay at national forest campgrounds when we are in the area again. - SlurLanceALot

Small privately owned (owner lives on property) RV campground that has full hookups and free wi-fi. Park is situated in the ponderosa pines of the Jemez mountains at an elevation of 7600 ft. Unable to acquire satellite due to pine trees and no over the air channels could be found but we didn't care with so much to do and explore in this area. - Gary Sanders

I think this CG is a bit over priced. It is convenient to I-25 so a good one or two night stop. Laundry was good, wifi was the usual (very slow in the evening, slow other times). Our pad was a bit narrow. - RedHorse1

I only wish this KOA had a pool. Everything was neat and clean. The utilities were good. Spaces were close together and hemmed in by juniper trees. I couldn't put my awning out, not because my neighbor was close but because the Junipers made the campsite effectively 10 feet wide. A trailer with slides would not have fit. The site wasn't very even either. Took a lot of adjusting to level my trailer. They did have a nice playground for my daughter. Verizon cell service was shockingly bad (especially considering it's along an Interstate highway and close to Santa Fe). The campground's WiFi did help make up for the poor cell service. It wasn't fast, but I managed to do the basics like E-mail and Facebook. The service was really nice and friendly. The laundry room was spotless and reasonably priced. I would stay there again because I suspect it's probably the best in the area. - SeaTeacher

This is nice and quiet at night, but even though quiet hours end at 8 AM, we were awakened every morning around 6 AM by barking dogs, slamming compartment doors, and conversations. Other than that, we enjoyed this park. The cable TV and Wi-Fi were both very good. Our site was dead level in spite of it being just gravel. Navigating the park roads with a bigger rig like ours is a bit challenging. We did enjoy listening to the coyotes howling in the distance one night around 3 AM. It gives you a taste of the nature of the southwest. We thought the price was big high for how the park was, but Santa Fe is a tourist area so everything costs a big more than it should. We had full hook-ups. The sewer was set so far back that I had to put an extension on my sewer hose. The rec hall was in a garage-like metal building and not very impressive. The office staff was very pleasant and helpful, which is a big plus to us. - dhaney1944

Pull thru was on hillside. Dusty. - Lafitte

The park is very tight maneuvering and could be a problem if you are longer than we were. We needed a site for a night and it filled that for us. Did not use any facilities and had to be very careful getting back out of the park safely. - dalenoel

Our pull through space was barely long enough for our 34' motor home & tow vehicle. Any bigger rigs would have a very hard time fitting in the space & would have to disconnect a tow vehicle. We had full hookups. Wifi was fairly good. Staff was very friendly & helpful. A nice quiet park. We would stay again. - HS R.

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

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

Park is now closed to RVs. We tried to stay and were told by the on-site property that the Rodeo is no longer able to accept RVs. Apparently the Rodeo does not have the proper licensing/permitting to operate an RV park. The manager was nice enough to let us park for the night with no services since it was getting dark. - my12by60

We moved to this location after reading about it. You get what you pay for. We got full hookups close to the center of town. It was no frills, but the price was right. The location was quiet and secure. There are enough channels to get some decent television with your antenna. The only complaint was the need for a long sewer hose. Luckily I had that. Other than that, this place was great for the price. - Ugly SAM

In town location, great price. Not busy. Sandy sites, a bit unlevel with bonus horse droppings in your site. Gated entry, safe area and very quiet at night. Would stay again instead of paying twice as much or more at the other campgrounds. 30 amp only, back-in only. - sysadmin

Price was for a week, 6 days for the price of 7. Not much grass but the place is immaculate with doggie bags and containers all over. There is a 1/2 acre dog run to the far end of the park. They took mail and packages in the office for us. It's not located in the middle of town but it is close. You can take the bus downtown from here for $1 for all day. Do not show up after 5:oo because you can't stay. There is a Walmart about 1 half mile from here. The only suggestion I have is that they could put a chair in the showers somewhere. - Bjensen

We stayed here twice in the last 10 days. More expensive than usual due to Balloon Fiesta. Very efficient check-in. Bus stop right outside the RV Park gate to downtown. Some sites have patios and concrete pads. Neither of ours did. - Kiwijo
Sep 2017 - $36.00
Very clean, well-run campground. We had a back-in site with good satellite RV signal. Very weak Verizon cell service (kept dropping calls), weak Verizon data. Park wifi was pretty good most of the time. Staff was friendly. Laundry was clean and machines worked well. - John and Carol

We stayed here during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. So we start with a warning: Even in Santa Fe, make your reservations well in advance at this time of year. This park is located in the city, albeit out in the suburban area. The sites were very tight. The roads were navigable. There was a small park/ play area at the back of the park with a short trail for walking the dog. Wifi was very good, which was great because cell phone signals were very weak. It's not a pretty campground, just functional. We would stay here again only if other options were not available. - FifthWheel Travelers

This park has been here quite a while and it shows. Run down neighborhood w/an upscale condo development next door. Five empty retail spaces out front. Poor signage; were told to look for the sign for the condo development. 50 amp power on some sites but ours at least, had no way to shut off power while plugging in/ unplugging.
Median in street requires a u-turn if coming from East and another if leaving going West. On plus side, mgmt was friendly and helpful; kept grounds clean although lots of dog poop not picked up in dog-walk area. Would probably stay here again. - Bojangles

September 24 &25- Campground provided what we needed as a place to stay. But...to start it has no sign on the road to let you know where to turn. As others have mentioned you need to watch for a sign to the business next to it. Shower stalls are small. Very small. TP was of the narrow width variety. Washer and dryers were in the bathrooms. The power outlet at our site had no breaker and was within one foot of the ground and right next to the water hookup. The playground equipment is something out of the early 1960's and needs to be replaced. It was hard to tell where the tent camping ended and the so called dog walk began. Wifi worked for us but spoke with another RVer who walking around with her laptop looking for reception. Watch for tree overhang if you are using the pull through site with a bigger rig. On the plus side the bus stop to downtown Santa Fe is right next to the camp and ran every 15 minutes. Site was reasonably level. We had a new picnic table. - ForestWalker

Very expensive with sites very close together. The sculptures created by one of the owners are nice but the rest of park is just blah. Nothing special except a place to stay if you have to while you visit Santa Fe. Won't stay here again. - Gina A

Unfortunately, this is not one of our favorite parks. It is in Santa Fe and it is expensive but it doesn't live up to the price tag. The main advantage is the park is close to Santa Fe. There is also the Rail Runner train station nearby. It is an inexpensive and convenient method of transportation to downtown. The entrance leading into the park is concrete but the interior roads are gravel and dust - you will get dirty! Many fellow rv'ers drove too fast kicking up even more dust. Other than at check-in, we never saw any staff members. Out site was gravel, narrow and unlevel. The laundry facilities are very expensive so save that task for another park. There is little to no landscaping except for a few trees and some modern art. Use of a weed eater would make a definite improvement! For the most part, other than the odd siren or two, it was pretty quiet at night. Directv satellite is good. Verizon 4g 4 bars but not reliable. Don't rely on the Wi-Fi - it's passable when you can get on, which isn't often, and even then it will kick you off after a bit. We were warned by fellow RVer that bikes have been stolen so we tucked ours in the back of our toad. One curiosity - when we checked in of course they asked if we had pets which we don't. Yet they put us in a site right across from the dog park. There were plenty of other empty sites so it makes no sense. - Free

Dusty, dirty, dog poop. Not very attractive and yet expensive. - Mleeder
