8 Parks near Santa Fe, New Mexico
Jul 2014 - $10.00
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

Highest of New Mexico's state parks (8,800'), so it tends to be cool in the summer. Convenient to Santa Fe (only about 12 miles to town). Downsides: highway noise, gloomy sites (you won't get much solar power here!), unlevel sites, narrow roads, dump station never open in all the times I've been there (I hear you can get staff to open it for you, but the office is never open either, so good luck finding a ranger!), generally gloomy and dark due to heavy forestation. Oh, and I should mention that to get here from Santa Fe, you must drive through some *very* narrow old streets and take some really tight turns at intersections. In anything longer than about 25', this can be a very stressful experience. - Andy Baird

The greatest thing about this park is that it is right in the city and close to everything. It is about what you would expect from a park tucked behind a truck rental store. But it is very clean and nicely kept up. So there is nothing really negative, just don't expect a "resort". We stay here when we visit our son and will continue to use this park in a great location. - Trek Across America

Rate is for weekly stay. This is a quiet in-town park just off Cerrillos Road in Santa Fe close to everything. Utilities were fine with open sky for satellite. It is, after all, Santa Fe so not inexpensive. Our site was a level pull-through with plenty of room to turn in and good spacing. We have family here and will stay at this park again. - ronboett

Pretty average RV park, but quite pricey. There is a 15% lodging tax added to their quoted rates. Our $50/night cost was after the 10% Good Sam discount. Our site was 30a only and the sewer connection was quite high off the ground, preventing us from connecting as we normal do as poop don't flow uphill. We found out only later that they do have some 50a sites, and observed that not all sewer connections were high like ours was. Wish we had known that on check-in ...site 18 should be marked for trailers or high gas rigs only. The utilities were good/reliable, but there was NO BREAKER on the electric outlet. Water pressure was excellent. Free WIFI was reliable. Trash cans at each site was nice, and they were serviced daily. We enjoyed our stay, but would probably look for other options on a future visit. We had to laugh when we noticed the nearby Motel 6 was advertising a cheaper rate than this RV park, and they include linens and maid service!! Our next stop 60 miles away in Albuquerque was in a slightly nicer park with better utilities at half the price!! Maybe next time we will just do day trips to Santa Fe. - AFChap

While traveling to Colorado from Texas we decided to stop in Santa Fe as our stopover night. Booked a spot at this RV park several weeks in advance. I had read previous reviews but none of the RV parks seemed to be perfect there so we chose this one based on its location and that it had a pool.
Upon arriving and checking in we were assigned to spot 75. I wasn't overly thrilled with it as the weeds were overgrowing around it and it smelled like sewer. My husband backed the camper in and went to hook up everything and noticed that there was "stuff" all over the ground; horrible smell and flies eating him alive. I went up to the front office and ask for another site explaining the smell, etc. Front office lady contacted maintenance and they came down to check things out. Come to find out last camper had dumped their grey water/black water, etc. all over the campsite due to the sewer being clogged with "food". Do they randomly check sites just to make sure everything is good and in working order BEFORE they rent it out?
They moved us to another site. 103. It was a very small and crammed site. We barely had room to park our truck after dropping our travel trailer. There were other nicer sites open but for some reason we were stuck in this site - looked to be maybe for a pop up camper??
They had fire rings and picnic tables but the spaces were so close together I would not have felt comfortable having a campfire or even sitting at the picnic table. Would I stay here again....NO! It was way overpriced for what we paid for and what we actually got and this was rate was with a military discount. - The Talks

This is our third time to stay here. It is a great location for visiting sites around Santa Fe. The park is rustic in nature and is kept as well as could be expected given the terrain where it's located. Most sites are adequate but some are unleveled and a bit cramped from one to another. The park is on a hillside and has lots of scrub cedars common in this area. The surrounding Mountain vista's are gorgeous. The power and sewer hook ups worked well but the water pressure was a bit low but useable. WiFi worked very well (about 6.4 Mgs/sec). We will definitely return if we are in the area again. - mlbarry

Very nice office staff. Park is very narrow and only has one loop for large rigs. Trees are very close to sites. Had to strategically position the rig so that we could open all our slides. Park is very hilly and leveling the rig was not easy. Cable TV is sketchy but wifi works well. - chopper989

No rating on Service because we checked in after 5:00 PM, used the office drop and were out of there early in the morning. Other reviewers have said it all; uneven sites, rutted roads; however, the power was spot on and water pressure constant. I'll add that you shouldn't take your pet or yourself outside for very long because there are bull thorns or goat heads, whatever, everywhere, and you'll spend the next hour or so pulling them all out. Most everything around is closed although there was a food truck right at the entrance and there is a gas station next door. We will probably not be back unless we're stuck for a place to stay. - pyrthkr

We camped here in a FW , was north of Santa Fe NM , the attendant was very helpful in pointing out location for laundry services, we visited old Santa Fe NM for the day, great town , the rv park is good for a couple of days while checking out the area, has FHU and good 50amp service , water pressure was a little low , no cable but a lot of tv channels. - Vetl82

The previous reviewer was spot-on with the review of this park. Basically just a big gravel parking lot with a very friendly and helpful manager, but with great access to area attractions without the traffic of Santa Fe. Sites are very wide, enough to park your tow vehicle along side our RV. Nothing fancy, and remember no restrooms, but for us a great location made up for any shortcomings. - Meanderman

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

The park is advertised as being in Santa Fe, which it is not. It is several miles away, yet still noisy being very near a freeway.
The park also advertises WiFi service; on arrival, one learns that the WiFi is *not* high-speed, and is suitable only for email (if that). This is *NOT* what one expects from a high-dollar, known RV park; for those who rely on quality connections while traveling, this is an enormous problem. Some travelers, like myself, conduct business online, and rely on known sources for quality connections. When learning on arrival that the connection would be useless, this was *most* disappointing.
Otherwise, the park is impeccably clean, well-managed, and the staff accommodating while not overtly friendly.
We would probably choose a different location for future travels to Santa Fe, mostly for improved location but also WiFi service. - ziaptrn

This KOA was the nicest campground we have been in so far in our travels. I felt the need to post and let everyone know how nice it is. The people that work the campground are very helpful and friendly. The shower house was immaculate! I usually will not use a campground facility since I am very peculiar but this was an exception. I highly recommend this to anyone traveling in the Santa Fe area. - LA-TRAVELING

Small RV park without a pool. Nice setting in woody area, beautiful patio area by the office, and very quiet. We would stay there again. - Rachel and Laurence
Jul 2015 - $39.00
We stayed here five nights while exploring the Santa Fe area. Not much to do in the immediate vicinity that we could see. The campground is about 20 minutes south of Santa Fe, and about 10 minutes from an open air museum that we really enjoyed visiting. We were assigned a site in the "resident's loop" and were disappointed at first. But the site grew on us and we would definitely return and perhaps even ask for the same site. We had to park close to the concrete patio to get level, but even then had plenty of room on the spacious patio. - 22Trvl

Good location, well kept, only negative is no cable and over air reception is only fair. Price continues to increase. Not a bargain! - grizd

This is a great family run park. Very clean and landscaped. This is our 2nd time staying here. It is about 8 miles to downtown and in traffic it's a long way. We were there over the 4th and had a great view of 12 different firework displays! Wi-Fi is not good. They have put in a dog park, which was a hit with our dogs. Nice 3/4 mile walking path along the outside edge of the park. - Linda0606

Friendly staff. Well maintained landscape and park. Back of park is well kept and maintained mobile homes. Good hookups. Shaded sites. We were on a level concrete pad. There are some gravel sites which they seem to use for overnight people. Two of the gravel sites are pull-through. We are backed in. Pool looks nice, we have not used it.
Make reservations; they do fill up. It is a 55+ park, so quiet. Pets are allowed. Wi-Fi works well but no streaming, two access codes per site. Good Verizon signal.
GREAT location for getting to shopping and the rest of Santa Fe. We will stay here again when in the area. - BorntoCruise

This is a very nice RV park. Sites are concrete pads and very level. It's easy to find, but you do need to look for the blue universal camping sign to know where to turn. Office staff is very friendly. We were lead to the wrong site initially and when we discovered that, the young man returned to help guide us into the correct site. We really could have done it by ourselves but I think they want to be sure nobody hits anything when backing in. The location is very convenient for visiting Santa Fe. We would stay here again. - dickens

Smaller park close to Sante Fe. The sites are not too close. Nothing special, but nice. We stayed 3 nights and it was pretty quiet. We were in our 40' RV. There is propane on site which was ever convenient. Would stay here again. WiFi was not great. - TiffinRVer
