Had reservations for 6 nights. We stayed on Buffalo Grove Loop which has water and electric. Sites are fairly level, pull-through or back-in and are large. There are other loops that are dry camping or electric only. Campground is quiet with nice views of the lake. There is no wifi but Verizon was good. A dump station is available. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with maps and things to do in the area. Even the park rangers are friendly; we watched them help a camper put his tent camper up in the rain. We would stay here again. - mohocamper

This is a well-maintained Corps of Engineers park. The sites in the lower camping loops are paved and all have pagodas over their picnic tables. Some have electricity and water and others are primitive. The Juniper loop has asphalt sites. Some are quite narrow and others are on the short side. We have been here before so chose site 33 in the Juniper loop. It is long enough for our 32 foot fifth wheel and double wide. It also has a view of the lake. Sites in the inner circle of Juniper loop have water and electricity. Sites on the outer circle have only electricity. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass Discount. - Bobbi1948

Buffalo Grove Loop-beautiful setting, mostly quiet except for kids on weekends. Concrete pads, sheltered concrete picnic table, solar powered pole light provides soft light beside table at night. Bathroom and shower facilities are modern and well maintained. Pull through sites are unlevel and almost dangerous because of this. Back in sites appear to be more level. Cigarette smokers should be required to pick up their cigarette buts just as dog owners are required to pick up after their dogs. - G and G from ABQ

This is a beautiful, quiet place to stay while enjoying the trails and sights of this marvelous park. Free shuttle service to the various sites one might wish to go. Plenteous hiking trails and wonderful visitor's center. Camp sites cam be a bit sloped, requiring leveling your rig. - W Davidson

Three loops to choose from. We found a spot in the C loop big enough for our 29' trailer and truck. Drydocking only with a dump station on the way out and potable water available in select locations. Pretty area amongst the trees, canyons, and ridgelines. - Bandanna Man
Mar 2016 - $7.00
This is a great national monument campground and park. Nicely spaced sites, although many were very unlevel. No problem with our 30 ft Class A Motorhome. Typical National Park campground with flush toilets but no hookups. Dump station and water is available. Great views of surrounding area. Verizon service was fair at best.
Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface is asphalt and features a fire ring and picnic table. - Blowin-the-Wind

Gravel lot with power only, somewhat level. Good for an overnight stay. Casino was decent and food in restaurant (not the buffet) was good. Large travel center for fueling is attached. Very windy here FYI. Price does include a code for the dump/water station. Spacious gravel pull through site. - mlg2919

Meet friends there that were traveling through NM. Took the RV for a place to stay. This was an overnight visit. It was a somewhat level gravel pad. LOTS of room. 30/50 amp elec. service only. Two working Dump locations with water were avail. The Casino, w/ Buffet, (med/small in size) was convenient, quiet, clean and entertaining. The entire Casino Staff was AWESOME!!! Will definitely visit again. - Ron n Sharma

This is a basic stop over while traveling. Our site was flat and level. 50 amp. Dump station with water available. The campground is an easy walk to the casino. Good WiFi. Good Verizon cellular. - Deniselg53

The access from I-25 is very easy. We were greeted by one of the owners at the office and checked in quickly. Our pull through was easy to get into, nearly level and all amenities were up to speed. We had a great view of the mountains to the west. The park is always one of the cleanest venues we visit and this visit was no different. The bath house is spacious, VERY clean, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Grounds are free of trash and pet droppings. This a very important because no leashes are required for your dog! The trail around the property is is great shape. Beware however, the rabbits are everywhere and if your dog is a chaser a leash may be in order. Be sure and allow enough time to experience all the art displayed around the grounds and the restored machinery that helped make the campground possible. Finally, we love the fact that the wild flowers are allowed to grow and not mowed down. - DHK

We stayed in a pull through that was level. Very easy in and out in with our 45' coach. Good Verizon service. Lots of big rigs here. - Karens BAM

There is a 14 day maximum stay. No attendant. First come first serve.
This is a large asphalt parking lot with 30/50 amp service. Standalone fresh water/ dump station. No site is level, but we did not have any problem leveling our motorhome. Bandelier National Monument requires you ride the shuttle and it stops at the RV park. There is a Smith's grocery within walking distance and Bradbury museum in Los Alamos is cool with regular activities going on. Our Verizon hotspot gave us 5 bars of 4G, and we were able to pick up all major TV networks from Albuquerque with our over-the-air antenna. - waywardwind

There were few other campers at this lot behind the Visitor's Center. You pay at an automated kiosk, which was a little confusing. The price was right for electric only. You can fill up with clean water and there is a dump site. It has no charm but is good for a night. No tables or fire rings. - garlina

This is a county owned park behind the visitor center that offers all pull-through spaces. It has 50 amp power and free Internet but no other hookups. There is a dump station and shared water hookup in the park. Restrooms are clean and free shuttle buses are offered from the park to the national monument. Fees are paid at a vending machine that accepts credit and debit cards only. There is a very small pet area. A major supermarket is across the street and a propane filling station at the Mobil a block away. This is a good stopover for those wanting to visit Bandelier but needing an electric site, as none are available at the monument. - Traveling man

Location is about as close as you can get to action in Santa Fe, which is all down by the Plaza and several miles from campground. Signage is marginal on way in - passed it first time and had to negotiate a U turn on busy road which was not easy - (Hint: when you pass it coming from South, continue to Walmart parking lot to turn around.) Also, when exiting, you have to make a right turn which is opposite of where you want to go if you are trying to get back to I-25 - again, drive to Walmart parking lot and turn around. Sites are level. - dfwcantor

The park is great - quiet, shady but still able to use our satellite connection. There are 2 problems which keep it from a 10. The driveway is not well marked so you really have to hunt for the entrance. The washers and dryers are in the bath room so there are no hanging racks, chairs or folding tables. - WNC Traveler

Made reservations via the phone, was quick and easy.
Upon arrival, the Trailer Ranch RV Park had upgraded us to a different site, great I thought, until I found out it was $5 more than my reservation. After getting that sorted, we were guided to our site. Assistance in backing into the site was excellent.
Walking around the Trailer Ranch RV Park, the front is for RV's and the back section for mobile homes. This is one of the cleanest mobile home parks I've ever seen!
Our site was level with trees at the back. We stayed only 1 night but given the opportunity I'd stay here again and spend some time exploring Santa Fe. - W0GER

Stayed here for a week in a premium site. This is an outstanding park that is well run by a friendly staff. I've stayed in this outstanding location several times and will come back. An excellent choice!! - MovinOnDownTheRoad

The park was well kept and comfortable. It was easy to get to and centrally located to the amenities of Santa Fe. There were very few trees in our area, however we enjoyed the refreshing pool. We'll stay here again when in Santa Fe. - Daiseydog

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

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

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
