Nice place to stay for a couple of days. The Spa is excellent and the workers were extremely helpful. There are some great hiking trails right out of the campground, go check out Josephs Mine Trail. We stayed at site 11 which is a very tight spot. The wifi was excellent and bathrooms were clean. We were here in the middle of the week so campground about 1/2 full. Had an issue with our electric hookup and the electrician and host spent about 2 hours helping us troubleshoot the issue and pointed us in the right direction so I was able to repair. It's a little more expensive than most campgrounds but the location and availability of the Spa makes up for it. There are no sewer hookups but the onsite bathroom was clean. Dump Station for an extra $20.00. We would definitely stay here again when traveling thru. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This review is only about the rv parking. We had a hell of a time getting into our spot. There were some spots that were okay for a 40' but not this one. We should have gone back to desk to ask for another spot. Once we put out our slides, we could not walk on the passenger side at all and had to duck and walk on the driver's side. Internet was great. All that aside, we would go back because we loved using the pools. We will definitely get the spots meant for a bigger rig though (6, 7, 8, 9 and 10) Do not take 11!

We enjoyed this little park. How many RV parks are next to a hot springs spa with a four star restaurant, yoga classes and massages? You are supposed to pay extra to enter the pools if you are in RV park- I think it is about $20 a day. The park is alongside a small 'river' (in NM that's what we call intermittent seasonal streams) and in the bosque so there is a lot of shrubbery and trees between sites and many feel very secluded and private. Bath house is coed, with two toilet rooms and two shower rooms -sink area is shared. I felt comfortable and safe using it. Some nice hikes available including to an old Indian ruin nearby. Fellow campers ranged from some nice Airstreams to a family of four who expertly erected a large dome tent. It's true, as one reviewer commented, that there's 'no reason to stay here unless you want to go to the mineral springs' but to my mind that's mainly because Ojo Caliente itself is more or less in the middle of nowhere even by NM standards. The spa was well run and very busy with blissed-out boomers wandering everywhere in their bathrobes. Not a very kid-friendly place - children only allowed in one pool and there is a 'whisper rule' - all conversation in public spaces to be in low tones. The restaurant really was good for breakfast and lunch - didn't eat dinner there. Daytime prices very reasonable. We will definitely be back to this little park. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This location could be a nice addition to an exploration of Northern NM -keep going north and explore the Carson National Forest - beautiful gem. Go back to Española and head east to the Santuario at Chimayo and then take the high road to Taos. Or take the river road to Taos and along the Rio Grande Gorge. Go to Angel Fire. Stop in Santa Fe on the way up or back.

Eat at El Paragua in Española.

The reasons to stay here are the spa and trails. RVers are 2nd class citizens otherwise. You pay a high price for (very) poorly designed sites that are too small with hookups on the wrong side and hidden away behind the employee housing. Then you have to pay $20 to use the dump station and a similar amount to enter the spa. We went full in on the spa (private pool, massage, dinner and other extras) so found the RV situation annoying. That said, we were by the river with good shade and quiet. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Inspite of my comments about the RV facilities and treatment, the spa and surrounding area for hiking is pretty special and this shows in the obvious popularity of the hotel/resort.

Rate for camping doubled and doesn't include rv dump which is $20 and you must arrange for an "attendant". The spa price goes up on Friday to the weekend rate $14 more, $35. The sites are the same, but some trees have been trimmed. They have added a small bathroom close to the entrance of the rv section, and use this as the reason for the rate increase. The spa is now 'whisper only' in all areas, silent in one pool, so brush up on your sign language if you want to socialize, and stifle that pesky laughter. Seems a little tense!

This was a nice, affordable hot springs in the past.

The spa is a good value still, if you come on weekdays, which does not include Friday. I will be checking for someplace else to camp and maybe come for the day only if I'm in this area again. Will not make it a destination as in the past. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.

The only reason to stay here is to enjoy the hot springs. The sites are small, so make sure your rig will fit. You have to pay $18.00 to use the hot springs, and this includes use of the showers and towels. Bring your own lock and use one of the lockers, or extra $$ to rent from them. Water and electric at most sites, dump station on the way out. Had a great stay and will likely stay again when we need a soak.

We stayed here to be close to Taos with maybe having the option to soak and do some fancy dining. We got our 35' fifth wheel in spot #11, not that much room to spare though. Most sites were very small, some had shrubs to separate sites, but some didn't. They have a list of sites and what will fit in them; check that out if you have a big rig and make a reservation in advance. There are porta johns in the RV lot; I did not use. I did use the rest rooms in the lobby once or twice though...I am pretty sure they were much nicer! You need a code to open a gate to get to the RV parking which seemed unnecessary; we are pretty much in the middle of nowhere. However outside the gate (twds the spa) is the lot for employees and for locals who hike the trails. Lots of great hiking right from the park. Upon checking in, I was disappointed to have to ask for a map of the grounds and a schedule for the yoga. Then had to go back the next morning to get a map of the hiking trails. I can't say that the map and trail markings were accurate, but we didn't get lost either. As far as I know, there was no map of the rv spots; we found ours all by ourselves. We ended up not taking advantage of their spa or yoga etc We did partake in the wine bar; prices were reasonable considering the location and atmosphere. The service was great. Other dining locations are a short walk to the main road: pizza, taos trail inn steakhouse, cafes. You have to go to the lobby or to the wine bar to use wi-fi. I felt a bit out of place sitting in a spa atmosphere doing my 'business' on my laptop. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We came here to use the hot springs. The campground, while certainly not top rate, was a plus. Everything is dirt and fairly level, with lots of trees and brush and good space between the individual sites. Only outhouses are available unless you walk the quarter mile or so to the spa facilities. There you will find a nice restaurant and bar and a lobby in which you can get WiFi. Shower facilities are available but only if you pay the additional expense to get in to the pool area. Maps for the many hiking/biking trails are at the front desk. This is a wonderful campground for walking your pets. If you want to use the dump you have to get someone from the spa to unlock it for you.

Ranks with the worst parks ever visited. No one maintains the rv section of this "resort". Just driving in a circle to approach a site our rig got 3 big scratches from overgrown bushes. The angles are wrong so you can't come in to back into the spots they say will "fit" a large rv. This place might be OK for a tent camper or a rig under 25', but we have a 34' 5th wheel with 3 slides, and even tho I told the man at the hotel this when checking in, he neglected to tell me that they really didn't have sites for anything that big. He told us they had 50 amp sites. Well, there was ONE 50 amp, everything else was 20 or 30. Trying to get back out was a nightmare. Do yourself a favor and drive on by!

Good campground if you are self-contained (portable toilets and showers at the paid spa). Friendly staff. The desert trails were worth the stay. Ask for the map and bring water and your GPS. We used the spa after 6PM for $15 a night weekdays. So, for $35 a day, we had cool pool, hot tubs, mud pools, steam and sauna: with relaxing views of the desert, and comfy camping. Bike rides around the river was nice, too. If the campground had sewer hookups at each site, this place would be a 9.5. Using the central dumping station was OK, though. No cable and that's OK. Wi-Fi was OK by the office and pool: not in the campsite. An ethernet run and wireless router by the campgrounds would be a good idea for management to consider. Reasonable drives to Espanola and Taos. Nice place! We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bad roads, huge potholes, overgrown trees (watch out large rigs), no signage; those are the negatives. The positives are mountain view, hot springs, a nice restaurant ($$) and spa services. All costs extra over the $20 a night (7th night free). There are only porta potties at the campground. Dump station near entry gate. We will probably not go back.

What a great spot! Desert, mountains, and hot springs. This is a small campground of 29 spaces attached to a wonderful hot springs spa resort. The campground is a little tight for larger rigs or with a tow vehicle. Road is a bit bumpy, too, but the Spa facilities and restaurant make it all worthwhile! This is a great place to stay and use the facilities with a day pass options. Wonderful restaurant and wine bar. There is no Wi-Fi at the sites, but in the main building there is. At the site, my 'card' worked fine. I would return here often! We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall it's a nice park with much more of a campground feel than an RV park feel. The sites are hit-or-miss in terms of ease of access. We had reserved site 19 and had a rather difficult time backing our 21' TT in due to the trees and bushes. Then, after all that work, we realize the water/electric is at the front passenger side of the site (relative to being backed in). Our hose reached from our standard rear-left hookup on the trailer, but the electrical cord couldn't make it even 1/3 of the way. Even if we moved the trailer to the front-right of the site, the cord would have barely reached, and getting in/out of the trailer would have been blocked by bushes. We called the office (non-RVers unable to comprehend our complaint) and moved ourselves to site 17 (not shown on their map, but it's a pull through at the bottom center). A blessing in disguise, we'd say 17 is the best site in the park. Later walking the park we noticed there were several sites with this stupid front-right placement of the water/electric. It's fine if you pull in forward with a motorhome, but otherwise why on Earth would anyone place the hookups in that location? We also experienced some frustration with the desk staff. Long story short, our reservation had gotten lost. Luckily the part was mostly empty when we arrived. Wifi is not present at the sites, but it is not advertised to be. It is available in the restaurant building and in the pool area. We did receive a perfect T-Mobile 2G signal at our site. Here's a quick rundown of the sites: 1 & 23 are occupied by hosts. 2 would be nearly impossible to back a trailer into due to trees. 3-10 are all wide-open in traditional RV park style, but suitable for large rigs. 11-22 are more spaced and have trees and bushes and are reasonably easy to get into (varying difficulty). 24-29 should not be attempted with a trailer as the bushes are intrusive and the road for that section is a dead end (locked gate, despite being shown as a loop on their map). The site widths, lengths, and amperage vary, so be sure to consult the map on their web site. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a no frills RV park which is why the price is so reasonable. You are basically paying for utilities and the convenient access to the Ojo Caliente Mineral Hot Springs (4 minute walk). While the park is basic, you really don't want for anything while you are there.. More than likely, you are there to enjoy the natural hot tubs, beautiful hiking, and delicious meals at the Alsatian. We would definitely stay here again and hope to visit next time during the summer months so we can try the Mud Bath.

Fabulous destination: hot springs, spa, restaurant, wine bar. Terrible RV park. We decided it was worth the $20; very rough roads,and lots of untrimmed trees to enjoy the renovated spa facilities and the rare treat of an on-site wine bar. Without the spa facilities, this place would merit a 1 or 2: terrible roads, very few decent sites, no restrooms/showers/laundry. Just a weedy dump station; electric (only three 50 amps, if that's what you need), and water hookups. But who cares after a soak in the hot springs and a massage? Sites 1 and 23-27 are the popular ones. Stop by office to get a map and pick out your own site first before paying. Note the new rate (which their web site does not yet reflect): you pay $20 for RV site + $24 per day for access to springs. Old rate was $30 for RV site, which included 50% reduction in hot springs fee. We camped at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa RV Park in a Motorhome.
