14 Parks near Santa Fe, New Mexico
Jun 2015 - $5.00
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

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

Stay for 1 month. Only 5 minutes from Santa Fe downtown. Nice and well located campgrounds. Staff friendly and respectful. Medium size lot. Nice park for kids and a dog run as well. Clean pool. Just beyond the campground, you will find a long bike trail. You can bike up to town. - Merci_la_vie

Gravel sites with tall weeds, goatheads, and red ants. Mostly full-timers. A few junk campers looked to be abandoned. Good location for visiting Santa Fe but they need to hire someone to landscape. Do not bring pets here because of conditions. - Bat Rider

Park is conveniently located between Santa Fe, Bandolier and Los Alamos which are all great places to visit. The water and electricity all worked well. Spaces are wide and allow enough area to park your vehicle. There are no trees at all so your satellite TV will work. Check in staff was friendly and efficient.
The Cons: Other reviews have said it all. This is primarily a gravel lot, covered with weeds and goatheads with no ambiance at all. Weeds were up to the steps of the RV, as well as up to the bench of the picnic table. The internet, although included, was weak and inconsistent. Generally, although it would connect, nothing would load. Nothing. Thankfully, there is a McDonalds across the highway when we had business on the internet that needed to be taken care of. NO TV reception over your antenna. No cable available.
We would not stay here again. In fact, we would've left after the first night if we had not already paid for our full stay. Way overpriced for what services are provided. - themom3

This is a large gravel parking lot that's great for overnight or a few days stay to rest and visit the casinos. Easy on/of the highway and fuel is right near the entrance to the park. There are 2 large casinos within a couple of miles and plenty of shops and restaurants. We will stay here again when in the area. - dok

Great park. A very rural feel which we like. Spaces are close but wasn't a problem. Gravel roads and sites. First impressions that roads a little tight for our 32' trailer and tow vehicle but we had no problems at all. Would definitely stay here again, - donw78025

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

Nice spacious campground. My site was a small pull-through with electric and water hookups. The site itself was pretty level but short so that my tv was decidedly downhill after unhooking and took a bit was navigating to hook up when I left. Lots of small trees dot the campground giving some privacy and soaking up noise. Staff was very helpful in providing information about Santa Fe. - workinforpeanuts

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

Very nice location and wonderful place to see/visit Santa Fe. Would absolutely stay here again. - Jack&Wanda

Big rig friendly! Nice sized pull-thru sites. On a hill, with beautiful views! Restrooms and showers were immaculate and well maintained. Nice sized clubhouse. Store with a few necessities and souvenir items. We would stay again, when we are in the area. - NYParsels

We stayed in a pull-through site with a concrete pad and small patio. The roads are crushed rock and in pretty good shape. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. The sites are close but adequate for what I wanted. There is no grass and no real trees, but that is the norm for this area. AT&T and Verizon worked fine. Didn't use facilities, but the office,store area is nice. Campground is on the far west side of Sante Fe. - burnswl

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

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

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

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
