12 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.
Adminstrtor Note: This USFS area is temporarily closed. Check with the Ranger Office for updates. - Mojo goes

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

This park is your typical desert terrain of rocks and dirt. A park employee threw a rock while mowing which shattered a large window in our 5th wheel. The park's response was sarcastic with no apology, no offer to help us get rig road worthy, no adjustment to our bill. Park sites are small. Big rigs had trouble negotiating turns. Some of park landscaping is in the way of putting out slides and awnings.Wifi was inoperable and we had no cell phone service. This park is not central to Santa Fe activities. It is about 30 minutes from most city attractions.I would not recommend park. - unifan

This was a very nice campground to go to during my stay at Santa Fe. I would definitely go here again. This campground's amenities included laundry (a little bit pricey, but not overly), clean bathrooms and showers, and clean dumpsters. The service was very nice, and the owners were quite understandable as well. The WiFi worked comfortably, but just using cell service will not work at all. Overall, it was a wonderful campground to stay at. - Kristenmoseley

Dust everywhere. My site was fine loose dirt with hard pan underneath. Some large and smaller rocks I had to try and clear out of my way to put up my tent, but I couldn't get all of them. I had to clear the bed in my tent twice in one day because of the dirt that would blow in. My dishes on the picnic table had to be wiped out after being on the table an hour because of blowing dirt. No grass. No mulch or pea gravel on my site to temper the dirt. The trees were so small they couldn't much shade and although it only got to 86 in the day, my tent was burning hot inside and no shade to help. - Kathryn jacobson

This is a kinda cool, funky, old-school RV park. I have no idea why posters before me seem to be complaining about the closeness of the sites. I assume they are referring to the FHU area which is a pretty typical one-right-next-to-the-other RV park set up. But if they think THESE sites are close together they must not have travelled much. We've been on the road for a year and a half and the spacing here is pretty much the same as most places and we've seen them a LOT closer. In fact, it's even better in a lot of cases because there is at least vegetation between most of the sites that affords SOME privacy. The upper part of the park is the electric & water only part. The roads winding through there are tight and very rough. The sites are either gravel or dirt and although most of them are long pull thrus, the level area is very small and then the front of the site drops off precipitously. I think most bigger rigs would have a real tough time there. However, the sites are big and have quite a bit of shade as well as a picnic table (most kind of rickety) and fire pit. The restroom is old but was clean and functional. The laundry has five washers plus the broken one (there is ALWAYS a broken one! Lol!) and eight dryers. The washers are a bit of a rip off at $3 per load but they are at least a decent size. The dryers are $1.25. Not sure how long they ran, I think about 40 minutes, but the towels and jeans needed a second go-round. The lighting is good but the room is very cramped with a table in the middle that is too low to use comfortably standing up to fold and which has cabinetry under so you can't pull a chair up to it either. Besides, the room's too small to sit at the table anyway. Office folks were friendly and helpful but the store has very little in it. Bring your supplies with you. Oh, and the wi-fi actually worked pretty well most of the time. Verizon had two bars. Price was good and I'd stay again. - Pdxjoanne

Great park. A very rural feel which we like. Spaces are close but wasn't a problem. Gravel roads and sites. First impressions that roads a little tight for our 32' trailer and tow vehicle but we had no problems at all. Would definitely stay here again, - donw78025

We stayed here for 5 nights. The sites are dirt, some need a little leveling, but not a big deal. I loved that there are trees between sites and it is very quiet. We stayed in #114 and the wifi was excellent. Friendly staff, movie nightly, pool, walking trail. Very quiet.
My only complaint would be the spaces between rigs was fairly tight.
You are 7 miles from Santa Fe, but there are two excellent restaurants close by. Also, the picnic tables need to be replaced. - Kwanyen

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

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

Made reservations via the phone, was quick and easy.
Upon arrival, the Trailer Ranch RV Park had upgraded us to a different site, great I thought, until I found out it was $5 more than my reservation. After getting that sorted, we were guided to our site. Assistance in backing into the site was excellent.
Walking around the Trailer Ranch RV Park, the front is for RV's and the back section for mobile homes. This is one of the cleanest mobile home parks I've ever seen!
Our site was level with trees at the back. We stayed only 1 night but given the opportunity I'd stay here again and spend some time exploring Santa Fe. - W0GER

Stayed here for a week in a premium site. This is an outstanding park that is well run by a friendly staff. I've stayed in this outstanding location several times and will come back. An excellent choice!! - MovinOnDownTheRoad

The park was well kept and comfortable. It was easy to get to and centrally located to the amenities of Santa Fe. There were very few trees in our area, however we enjoyed the refreshing pool. We'll stay here again when in Santa Fe. - Daiseydog

Location is about as close as you can get to action in Santa Fe, which is all down by the Plaza and several miles from campground. Signage is marginal on way in - passed it first time and had to negotiate a U turn on busy road which was not easy - (Hint: when you pass it coming from South, continue to Walmart parking lot to turn around.) Also, when exiting, you have to make a right turn which is opposite of where you want to go if you are trying to get back to I-25 - again, drive to Walmart parking lot and turn around. Sites are level. - dfwcantor

The park is great - quiet, shady but still able to use our satellite connection. There are 2 problems which keep it from a 10. The driveway is not well marked so you really have to hunt for the entrance. The washers and dryers are in the bath room so there are no hanging racks, chairs or folding tables. - WNC Traveler

This is a well maintained RV park. Large open level gravel sites with concrete patios. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great cell service. Good WiFi. - roybrody

A lot good here. Nice facilities, friendly staff, quiet location with views, interesting outdoor art. Wifi worked pretty well for us. Phone service fine.
Not so good was the leveling of the sites. In order to get level, our MH wheels were several inches off the ground on one side. Noticed other sites with the same problem. This is something that's not that hard to fix and was highly disappointing for a park of this quality. Some sites also could use some re-graveling. - DFlorio

Very nice location and wonderful place to see/visit Santa Fe. Would absolutely stay here again. - Jack&Wanda
