This is a nice park with a friendly staff. You feel like you are "camping out" since you are in the juniper trees that populate the area, though you are not very far from Santa Fe. Though it is close to I-25, we did not hear road noise. We were led to our site, which was a good thing, since it was impossible to get into it due to position of trees and shrubbery. We were quickly assigned another less shaded site. I cannot speak to other alternative parks in the area, but this was a good place to stay a few days and explore Santa Fe and the surrounding area. The staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

Dirt roads and sites, and not very well maintained. The only good thing to say is the "office staff" was polite and friendly. Would not stay again if passing this way. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here on a road trip from Tucson to Denver one night. Note: Tom Tom has no idea where this park is --do not follow the directions on this GPS. Friends had Garmin and were able to find the park easily. What a pleasant place to spend the night on the road. It was close to I-25 and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Grocery store is three miles away and has everything you could need. Very nice setting on a hill. We were latecomers with no reservations so we had to stay near the road --there was some road noise. I would love to return to spend a few days here. The wooded setting makes the sites more private than most in New Mexico and the cool breeze is nice. Wi-Fi came in like a flame thrower (but we were near the office, so I can’t swear it was that way throughout the park). Our friends’ kids said that the playground was nice. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. Easy access in a 30' motorhome to any of the pull through sites. You will have to level the coach, though. Any longer than 30' and you will want to verify with campground staff that you'll fit in the wooded pull through sites - some will only fit a 30', and some will take longer rigs. They also have non-wooded sites that any big rig will fit in just fine. Lots of amenities, and of course it's right next to Santa Fe so there's no shortage of things to do and see during your stay. Be sure to buy your firewood from the park office - they sell piñon wood and the smell is fantastic. Bring your own tinder and lighter, though, because for some reason they don't sell fire accessories. The park has its own little nature trail, and the Sandia, Sangre de Cristo, and Jemez mountain ranges are close by for hiking at-altitude. Staff was very friendly, the dumpsite was clean, and dogs are welcomed here. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

They have many advertising billboards indicating they have cable TV, but after we had already paid for a water and electric site, we found out that cable was only available if you paid for a full hook up site. It would have been nice if we had been told that up front. Sites are a little small and close together. We felt the rates were a little pricey, but we were just outside Santa Fe which is a pretty pricey place in general!! We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

Great campground, close to town in a country setting. Has good WiFi and cable TV, and friendly staff with lots of helpful info on the area. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a very well laid out park. The staff are very friendly and helpful. One complaint was a toilet was out of order in men's bathroom leaving one for the whole camp ground. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Travel Trailer.

There are very cramped camp sites with no room to even walk around your trailer. We have a 35' trailer and was not able to fit in the first site they put us in. After several tries we were able to find a site that would fit us barely. We tried to get a refund since we didn't fit in a site and they were very unwilling to do so. The staff was friendly but could care less about the people & problems. I was not impressed by the campground at all. We will not be staying there again.

On the positive side this RV park is in close proximity to Santa Fe. However, the reservation and check in process left a lot to be desired. When making the reservation on the phone the employee kept interrupting me throughout the process. At that time we had requested and received a particular shaded, pull through site because we were traveling with 2 dogs and were staying for a week. Upon arrival the site had been changed to an undesirable area. They had reassigned us to an area with tent groups which had no trees, was crowded and was also a back in site. We got the owner of the campground involved and were able to get our original shaded site. This employee was still contradictory of what had transpired even in front of the owner. We live in a nearby town so we like to come to Santa Fe to explore and have stayed at this campground several times. Having encountered this attitude we will no longer give this campground our business. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here before, but in an smaller RV. This time we had a pull through site for a 35 foot RV. The sites are so narrow that with the slides out there was barely room for a chair. The trees do not provide shade. The pool was too cold to swim, although it was quite warm. The people in the office are very nice and helpful. I even asked about a certain plant they had, and they went out of their way to find out what it was for me. It's a shame, but next visit to Santa Fe, I think I will stay down the street where the sites are much larger. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

Had reservations for water/electric site, could not get level - looked for another, nothing available that was anything resembling level. Had to upgrade to full hook up site at a substantial price increase to get level. Also they advertise cable TV in Trailer Life guide and on their road side sign - this is only available at full hook up sites. Road noise is an issue. I actually would stay here again because we scouted the other Santa Fe campgrounds and they all left much to be desired! We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

We had business in Santa Fe that required a two month stay. There are not a lot of options in Santa Fe. We choose this campground, although it is 8 miles out of town, because it was a little higher elevation and surrounded by pinion pines. Our other option was an RV park on a very busy street right in town. We have a dog and the other RV park in town has very limited options for walking a dog. Rancheros de Santa Fe has a 1 mile, nicely maintained, walking trail that loops the campground. They are very dog friendly. Our dog was welcomed in their store/office every day for a dog treat. The campground sites could use a little TLC. It is pretty much dirt and some gravel. We had to put down lots of mats to keep the campsite clean. The campground was relatively quiet. There are services, including a nice market about 3 miles away. There are also a couple spectacular restaurants nearby (Bobcat Bite and Harry's roadhouse). Additionally, the staff were great about accommodating mail delivery and UPS packages. This is huge for those that travel full time. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

We were here 2 nights, and wished we had more time. We prefer the "state park" environment in RV Parks. 1-mile long perimeter trail through lush juniper and pine, very well-groomed and little elevation change. They are offering discounts for almost any card or club. Would stay here again (and hope we do!). We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Travel Trailer.

If you're in a small or medium sized rig and don't mind dirt roads, dirt sites and road noise this campground is okay but significantly over priced. It is located in the pinon forest and the dirt road to the camp sites is very tight maneuvering. We're in a 45ft diesel pusher with a dingy and more than one of the turns required more than one attempt to make it. The camp spaces designated for big rigs are too short to keep the dingy attached and no space to park it once off. They are so close together there is barely room for the picnic table and do not have trees. The campground is on Old Las Vegas Hwy and the "big rig" spaces are within 50yds of this busy road. Other sites back in the trees may be quieter. Free WiFi. Small fenced "dog run" area with shade tree in it. Nice little children's playground. The people that work here are very nice. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.
