13 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.
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

We stayed 2 nights at this KOA and would stop here again - it is about 10 miles outside of Santa Fe just off the interstate, and we enjoyed the rustic setting. Expect to hear some highway noise. In the campground the roads are unpaved, as are the campsites. If it has recently rained watch out for muddy spots! The bathrooms and showers were modern and had plenty of hot water. Camp store is well stocked but closed at 6pm. The laundry had 5 washers and 6 dryers, all functional but surprisingly expensive. Wi-fi worked fine, but we were not here at the high season. AT&T/T-mobile/Sprint users can expect good service throughout the campground, Verizon (which we had) is more spotty. - Pugsly

Sweet little park with lots of trees. Pretty quiet, even with the interstate nearby. Not at all close to town. The dog park was very nice, all gravel so it kept down the dust. Would stay here again. - thecampbells

Staff was very helpful and professional. Gravel sites (grass is rare in this part of the world!). There are many junipers that take away that parking lot feel that many of the campgrounds around here have. We stayed two nights as we visited the Santa Fe area and were very happy. Good Sprint coverage and we had excellent wifi. They give individual codes for your devices (we had 3) and bandwidth hogs get automatically limited so everyone gets service. - 4redwings

We had reserved for a week and then found out that this park was nowhere near anywhere that we wanted to get to. Big mistake on our part and the park would not refund any money. We took the loss and found a different park in a more suitable location. The park was ok other than location. - grammadon

The campground is an old KOA. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice office and small gift shop. Sparkling clean restrooms and showers. All variety of sites are available, some overlooking beautiful valley. Sites are nestled between fir trees providing a sense of privacy. Very close to tourist sites and museums in Santa Fe. Easy access to US 285 and I-25. - 15243

Pros: Really good wifi, clean park, nice shady hiking trail around the back of the park, quiet, staff was friendly and helpful
Cons: The space we were in was barely wide enough for our three slides. Bushes touched the windows on both sides.
The picnic table was placed in a space in the bushes between campsites, not at all usable. We checked out the laundry machines but they are very old and a wash is $3 per load.
Roads in most of the park are not at all flat or smooth. This park reminds me more of backwoods forest service campground. The sites are good for tents, but it would be difficult to park RVs in any of the spots without a lot of leveling.
We felt the daily rate for this park was pretty stiff for what we got. True, it is rather close to Santa Fe, and we know the lack of parks and demand in the area determines the price, but it was still pricey. The one redeeming factor was the speed and reliability of the internet which made up for the lack of outdoor space. - Tracy Barnett

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

Park is right in town, so you don't have to go far for any of your needs. I was given a concrete back-in FHU site for my 42' 5th wheel. Site (T-22) is plenty big enough for the RV and to disconnect and park my truck. The laundry and bathroom are clean and up to date. The wi-fi is some of the fastest I've seen. The place is beautifully landscaped with picnic table, chairs and you can hang clothes if you desire to. Would use this park again for sure. - Piperflyer 235

Nice spaces and even though close it was fine. We were in a 42' 5th wheel that we had to back in and it was fine. Dog Park was a little bit of a walk but very nice. The dog park had water, bags, toys and a shade canopy. Park is close to a busy road but once you get off that road it was fine. Street to turn off on came up pretty quickly so go slow or you could miss it. They also close office at 5:30 pm so if you can't get here by then you won't be able to stay here so plan accordingly. They escort every rig into their space and don't have an after-hours check-in system. - Rusty and Janet

Very friendly place, not a lot of space but clean . Dog park a long way away. Access to park is from a busy road. Tough getting out and going north. Would come back again. - Luthersr

We asked for 50 amp service and lady at desk put us in a site that her key said was either 30 or 50 amp. But it was definitely only 30 amp. We checked several others in same row and all were 30. Also the park was only a gravel parking lot with lots of full timers there so it felt a little junky. Would not stay here again. - mikesylvia

Nice level pull through spaces. Not much in way of cover or privacy in the spaces, but plenty of space to move in and out. Overall, appearance of park is OK and good location in town. Let's talk about the bathrooms. We came in late and picked up our info at the office. The bathrooms had a keypad entry which probably worked if the door actually latched on the men's bathroom. Bathrooms were not clean or secure and I am pretty sure someone pooped in one shower and appeared to have feces smeared on wall in another shower stall. Floors were filthy. We chose to shower in the camper and left. No stars for cleanliness or security. If you never use the park showers or bathrooms, this place is fine. If you do use the facilities at parks, I suggest you find another place. - B dog

Super friendly staff. Pet friendly park. Its an older park, but maintained. We stayed here to see Santa Fe, not sit in the RV park, and its right in town. Look for a black sign that says "The Lofts" to find it. Its off the main road enough that noise wasn't an issue. All the sites slope sideways for drainage on the property, we used 3" to level. Sites were spaced nicely, not too crowded. Checked out the bathrooms/shower, older but clean. Our nightly rate was with taxes and a group discount, the same as the good sam discount. We would stay here again if were in Santa Fe. - Wandering Westhoffs

This place is awesome. Love the walking trail. Yes, we are close to each other but I didn't mind it a bit. Utilities are excellent. Site level front to back but drivers side was a bit low. Love the concrete patios. Satellite reception excellent. Wonderful sculptures around the park. We will be back. - User2989

We stayed 3 days here. Close to Santa Fe attractions (the Plaza, Georgia O'Keefe gallery/museum, etc). The park was nicely tiered but still a little on the close side. Had a nice patio with a picnic table. Quirky metal art sculptures kept with the Santa Fe look. Hookups were no problem. Over the air gave a few station selections. Wifi was spotty but okay. We would stay here again. - Fulltimingit

Great RV park, 20 mins from Santa Fe plaza. Some sites are a bit bigger than others, but overall the way they stagger the rigs in each row, you have a bit more privacy. Owner has metal art and old machines scattered around the park, which makes the place more in line with Santa Fe art scene. Good wifi. Clean, quite, and close to lots of shopping. - LucyS
