12 Parks near Pecos, New Mexico
Jun 2007 - $17.00
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

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

A pleasant park. An arid part of the world with little grass, and we really appreciated the trees; however, some near the roadways could have been trimmed a bit as they drug across our trailer on the way out. Electric service, as per our meter, was marginal and it was a/c or microwave - not both at the same time. Water pressure was good. Wifi was useable, but not strong. The staff was very helpful with suggestions on things in the area to see. We would certainly come back. - Cactus Jack

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

Staff was friendly and loaded with local info, places to see, etc. Park even has it's own ~1-mile nature trail to hike. Slightly out of town so was very quiet. Great place to stay. Will definitely stay here if in the area. Although site was dirt we had no trouble leveling, however it rained every night and by the time we were ready to leave they levelers had sunk a couple inches, so would recommend blocks if you level with hydraulic leveling. - HR650

Extremely slow check-in and we had reservations. We had space 109. Suggest avoiding spaces 75, 109 and 110 as you get to enjoy fumes from the sewage farm. Had three minor maintenance problems and they were immediately fixed. Friendly work campers. - bilmo

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

Camped in the electric hookup area and there are only 7 available. Vault toilets nearby that had not been maintained. Water spigot was locked due to recent main break but ranger came by to unlock during the day. Wonderful scenery, great hikes and bike trails. Nearby Santa Fe was a bonus for day trips. Busy road up to park created noise during the day. Dump station available but also locked, rangers friendly and unlocked for us. Visitor Center empty, no trail maps, etc. No phone service on Verizon but got signal up at Aspen Vista parking and down the mountain near Santa Fe. - The Grizz

Although we made confirmed reservations almost a month in advance, and arrived at the campground mid-afternoon, we were not able to get the 50amp full hook-up pull thru that we reserved. We were told that we were switched out because we were only staying one night. In order to get a 50 amp site we had to take a back-in site on a hill that was not level. We had to put blocks under the front wheels to make ground contact after the levelers lifted the coach front to level it. The site was also too short causing our coach to stick out into the road, making it almost impassable. We did get free dinner tickets to make up for it, but I would have preferred our reservation be honored or told that it only secured a site and not a particular one. To add insult to injury, the roads were dirt, narrow, and rutted. The layout of the park was such that it was difficult to discern between a site driveway and a thru road. This is not a park I would return to. - Brenda D

I found the interior roads to be very rough. Site was fairly level. Needed 50 amp extension to reach box. The restrooms were clean at the usage site but there were artificial plants that hadn't been cleaned in a long time as were other areas of the restroom. - DickO

Road to this park is extremely rough, luckily it is short. Nice views, large area. Even though close to I-25, not too loud. Gravel sites, dog park fenced in, but just rock, lots of weeds, lots of burrs.
Park needs some TLC, run down and the pull-throughs are a little short. - TexasJanelle

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

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

This park is quite adequate for a short stay. It's not attractive, but price is right and it's conveniently located to just about anything you could want (walk to Walmart). Good Wi-Fi most of the time and good cable. No laundry. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. The sites were a bit short but very level. 30 amp only and the water pressure was a little low. The park employees were very nice. The owner lives on-site. Don't follow Mapquest directions to the park. Get off I-25 on exit 347 and go west to Legion Dr. (Comfort Inn on left, hospital on right). Right on Legion, right on 7th and then right on Harris into the park. - Luvtheroad

Very spacious sites in tall pines. Wifi very bad, but Verizon wireless had good signal. Check in process was fast and easy with a very friendly person. There was some electrical problems and campground had power company change out a transformer that 2 squirrels tried to nest on. Campground was extremely nice about extra guests and cars coming in to visit. Water pressure high so you need a regulator. - danmonz7

We had a long, level and picturesque gravel site nestled amongst tall pine trees. Great Checkin process, superb bathhouse, and a Sunday afternoon ice cream social to boot. Park was very quiet and had trash pickup each morning. We had open access to clubhouse to watch TV as there is no OTA signal and very spotty wi-fi. Verizon 1 bar or less. ROCIADA is very remote, but that's the beauty of this place. Could easily spend a month or more here as long as I had plenty of food in the freezer. - texasgal54

This was an very good stay for us. I would have given 5 stars overall, but two points need to be mentioned: 1) The free Wi-Fi service was there, but it was iffy at best. The most reliable service required a walk to near the welcome center or the clubhouse. 2) The site gravel pads were reasonably level, but some that were built up were narrow such that you step out the RV on to a slope. Thus you must park the RV to one side to avoid the slope and then create more of a leveling problem. On the plus side, this was a very pleasant stay, quiet and relaxing. We will come back. - New Mexico Stan

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
