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. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

It's a state park, so there is no cable or internet; but it is in a beautiful area in the mountains above Santa Fe. Quiet at night. Nice hike along the ridge line (strenuous). Had to run the ranger down in the morning to get him to unlock the dump station. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Unlike the other reviews we loved this place. Yes it is up the mountain and it is crooked and steep but it is up a mountain and the road goes to the ski resort and dead ends so it is not on a major highway. The view is amazing lots of pines there where deer and elk that in the evening would cross through the campground in the evening. We have 2 kids and the highway is not that close they could get out and play ride their bikes. The park ranger was very helpful. The store is not opened because instead of 7 people he needs the state sent 2 for summer help. Like he said most people would rather have clean restrooms then a store. When you leave and need to use the dump station just let a worker or ranger know when you are leaving and somebody will meet you to unlock the gates. You have to drive through Santa Fe to get to it, side streets and all. We will go back it was great. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

As others have noted, the campground with electrical hook-ups is located on a sloping road right off of the highway and there are no pull-throughs. There are a few small aspen trees and some shrubs between sites, but otherwise little privacy. The restroom was very clean, but there was no water and no sign to tell you where to get water! Eventually we located a ranger who told us they'd had problems with people vandalizing the pumps, so the only one working was up a hill at the ranger's maintenance station. The ranger seemed very lackadaisical... The visitors' center was closed when we were there. Proximity to Santa Fe is a plus -- but only if you have a small enough camper or a fifth wheel because the Santa Fe streets are narrow and crooked! We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Delightful, even though the air was a bit thin. We stayed in a primitive site, as all the electric sites were filled, and it turned out to the best choice! The electric hook ups are sort of alongside the road, which probably isn't noisy as the traffic is rather light, but our site was the best, higher up the hillside from the road, nestled under trees. This might not work for everyone, but we ran our generator when needed, and enjoyed the birdsong the rest of the time. Ranger Mark was a big help, giving us clear directions to the park, and doing everything he could to help us get loaded with water and settled in. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

The only way I can describe this RV campground we stayed in is: Being stranded on the side of the highway with electricity. When we arrived we were told that they didn't have any water over the weekend because there was such heavy use. Guess the tank had to refill. This is just too close to the highway. I would NOT bring children to this area. All of the campgrounds in the park are right off of the highway, don't know what they were thinking!! I would pass on this State Park. We left 3 days early and would never go back. There is a campground just before you get into the state park (Santa Fe Nat. Forest) called Black Canyon. This is off of the highway and it looks like they just remodeled the campsites and restrooms. No electric, but there is water located along the interior road. We're 35 ft.(& towing) and there were a few sites that we would have been able to fit into. They also have tent site pads. They are on the reservation system but do have first come sites. At least this would be better then camping on the road. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

We found this park in a brochure for Santa Fe which stated "RV's welcome". We tried to call ahead for info but got the park ranger voicemail. They never returned our calls. We went anyway, unfortunately. They only had a dozen or so RV sites right alongside the road, all back in, on a grade, with a ditch alongside the road, and since we have a 39' 5th wheel it was nearly impossible. But being that this park is about 8 miles up a mountain from downtown Santa Fe, with steep grades, switchbacks and hairpin turns, it was too late to turn back for the night, so we managed, not without stress! No water, only electric, no amenities, and a very busy road this time of year due to a ski area further up the mountain. It was a beautiful drive and gorgeous scenery, but don't try it with a big rig. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Plusses are very clean, facilities in very good condition. Minuses are very few and poor quality spaces for motorhomes over 30 feet, very limited number of electric only hookups (less than 10). Biggest problem is camping area is bisected by road to Santa Fe Ski Valley and traffic noise very intrusive. Best for pop ups, truck campers and very small trailers or fifth wheels. Best camping sites by far in the more primitive side of the park east of roadway. A couple sites there that can handle a 30 foot MH but no reservations. We camped at Hyde Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.
