The park looks like a big gravel oblong driveway but when you pull in you notice there are hook-ups under the bushes on either side of the drive. The owner came out and helped us get turned around which for a 30ft 5th Wheel was a bit of a tight fit. The park is across the street from the National Forest Ranger Station and just south of the highway junction that is Pecos, NM. The park was very quiet. The town does not have a leash law so all the dogs in town wander over to see what is going on and see if they can get a ear scratch. Fishing in the Pecos is the main attraction and the weather, even in summer, is cool. We would stay again and, while not a premier RV park, it was a great visit for us. - AGBAT

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

This campground is actually located 21 miles north of Pecos NM on Highway 63 and Forest Road 555. The last 5 miles are on a one lane highway, but the road is wide and there are pull outs to make passing other vehicles easy. The campground host is wonderful. He will help you find a site if needed and will also let you hook up to the electricity on the second host site if it isn't being used. The forest setting is beautiful and campsites are large and well-spaced. Altitude is about 8800 feet, so the weather is cooler in the summer than it is at lower altitudes. We plan on coming here again when we pass through the area next year. - Bobbi1948

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

We are stuck. This park is half way from where we live to where we are going in both directions, out and back, so we have little choice. This is a tired old campground that gets worse every year we stay there. It is quiet and pretty to camp among the pinon pines, but the sites are not level! We stayed in one going and it was off at least three inches front to back. We stayed in a different one coming back and it was off 3 inches side to side. They have put down new gravel in about four 50 amp spaces and one road. It is made from fractured rock (angular, not round) which is hard to walk on and hard on the dog's feet. You don't take a shower, you take a dribble as there is very poor water pressure. WIFI is iffy and goes on and off and very slow when it does work. The store was poorly stocked with one old mayonnaise jar and salad dressing from last summer and three cans of soup. The owner is nice but uses too many excuses why her service is bad. Blames it on her husband's health. She should hire help! The entrance is narrow and if more than one RV is waiting to check in, traffic can't get out. The bathroom is clean but outdated, with paint patches here and there. I really wonder how KOA keeps the franchise there. - scouter

We arrived mid day and the servive was excellent. The owner was sorry that they have to open a little later in the morning but that was not a problem for us. The campground does seem a little older and made for smaller campers. Sites are long enough but close to your neighbor. They are working on improvements like a little fenced in sitting area with a table next to the site and they were adding crushed stone to some internal roads. It is very hilly and the roads are narrow so you have to go slow. It is close to I25 but it was very quite all day. We were there 3 nights which was just enough to see everything in and around town. We would stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

Spent 3 nights at the Las Vegas NM KOA in our small Class A motorhome. They could use a few more prominent signs to help customers find their way. We missed the turn coming off the highway 84. The signs are so tiny and difficult to see. The main office looked a bit tired and could use a bit of tidying up. The manager was hard to find. Several times we tried to get in the office and it was locked with a sign saying the manager had to leave for medical reasons. The grounds were okay, with most sites scattered among the pinion pines. We were assigned what looked like a newer space - a flat pull-thru site on the edge of the grounds that was wide open (treeless) and very cozy with others camped on either side. Water pressure was terrible (gravity-fed). We could barely get enough to wash dishes. The winds blew so hard one night we worried about getting blown off our site (not the park's fault). Wifi was very spotty. When we left, we almost missed the exit sign to get us out of the park. It was tiny, hidden among the trees, and barely visable. The Las Vegas area is interesting and made for some enjoyable side trips. We find most KOAs, including this one, a bit pricey for what you get. - EileenC

We camped here for one night on our way to Arizona in October. Gates close at 5pm - not sure if this is seasonal. Galina CG closed, but South Area CG open. There was only one other camper in the campground! Water off at site, but drinking water available near entry to campground (spigot with hose threads). Dump station closed. Electric at site as well as a picnic table in a shelter.
The sites are large - some might be a bit hard to get into (tight turns) - it's almost easier to come in the wrong way on the road. Not all sites are electric - so choose carefully.
Even though the CG is somewhat near the road between Taos and Las Vegas (Hwy 518), there was hardly any traffic noise at night.
Cell service (Verizon) - at least one bar LTE. Tailgater satellite dish worked well. View of lake and hills to the west. Pleasant place for a one-night stay. - chinookgeo

Beautiful setting looking over the lake. We wound up here after driving thru the park where we had made reservations was not at all what was described or shown on their website. Storrie Lake is a peaceful setting spread out sites - except for the electric back-in sites. If we were to be in the area again we would stay here. Can't beat the rate. - 3catstravel

Great park…super value. Spent two nights here with an electric and water hook-up. Waste dump is easy on the way out. It is not crowded here in early October, but the dogs across the highway were just as loud as when we visited one year ago. Verizon coverage was 3 of 5 bars. Did not use restroom showers, as they locked the buildings at night, when we intended to use them. Ranger was very helpful in allowing us to stay until 9pm on check-out day, due to significant winds on the highways that afternoon. Would definite recommend this park. - noelbob

City RV park with a lot of road noise. Sits on a very busy highway and it can be a little difficult get out of during the day. All the utilities worked okay, but sites are close together. It rained while we were there and it did get muddy. - JC69

Fine for an overnight stop. The campground needs a lot of TLC. There were weeds everywhere, cigarette butts littered the site, beer caps, etc. They were all pull thru, full hook up sites. Located right in town and across from Walmart , so easy access to shopping. I guess for $25 I would stay again. - TravelingDonna

We stayed in a 26' cargo trailer. Pull-through sites. Monthly rate was $385. The managers are very nice. The wi-fi was a quite slow, but they said they were working on getting a signal booster. - jkproescholdt

Pendaries is a beautiful, quiet, well maintained RV Resort with spacious sites, lots of trees, green space and flowers. My husband, our dog and I spent one night here on our way to Colorado and simply loved it. We plan to make this a destination RV Resort in the future and spend time exploring the surrounding wilderness area from this lovely place. Highly recommended. - mudd

In-the-trees but quiet and did I say quiet? Trails in the woods for walking or hiking. Others indicate WiFi issues, but ours worked fine for email, etc. - Root
