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

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

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

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 was actually a nice but very old CG in need of some TLC. The water and electricity were fine and stable. The sites were wooded and gave some sence of privacy although not particularly spacious. Do not have any expectation of level sites, but they are OK. There is a great walking trail that goes above the property for about a half mile. Our dogs loved it. All in all, we would stay here again when visiting Santa Fe. - SchnoodleCamp

I have been staying at this park almost yearly for the past 20 years. Have always been able to pick and reserve my site and arrive to find it ready. They have changed their policy and now no longer reserve sites. When you make a reservation, you effectively get in line (first-come-first-serve) for a site with the amenities you needed. Their Wi-Fi was totally non-usable, though they claimed it was working fine. The site I originally reserved was full hookup and cable. The site they gave me had those amenities but was so un-level that the step for our trailer was 2 feet off the ground. We arrived late in the afternoon, so we were the ones who got the "junk" site. The site they moved us to had no sewer or cable. (they refunded the difference in site cost) Considering their new policy, we won't be staying at Rancheros de Santa Fe again. - Chris C

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

Pulled in after calling, got no response back. Self-serve outside the office, but not enough maps/payment envelopes for those after us. We picked site 7, since it looked long enough for our rig and had 50-amp. Bathrooms were old, but clean. Office was staffed in the morning when we left shortly after 9. Site 7 was a very tight left turn to get out of, and had enough of a slope at the exit end that our bumper scraped quite a bit of dirt on the way out. The bumper also scraped on the hill leading down toward the office to exit the park. The park is built on a hill, as others have said, and we don't recommend arriving at this one after dark - there are too many hazards/trees/etc. You'll want to be able to see everything. - Denise and Glenn

Road from I-25 to park extremely rough. Interior roads in park rough and not well maintained. Park does not give a good first impression. We pulled in at 2 pm and office was closed, although our packet was on the door. Sites are leveled out on hills and difficult to access. Overall park maintenance needs work with lots of peeling paint and rotten wood. Ok for an overnight. Small rocked, fenced area as dog area which our dog would not use. Very low water pressure. - unifan

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

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

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

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
