This campground: Quiet, clean restrooms, friendly and helpful staff, expensive laundry, very rough, ruddy gravel roads, and gravel sites. Our site #69 was private, with interesting hike path nearby. Nice pool (closed for the season). Off peak season rates were good. Need to fix the roads for very good review!

The cost for this campground was more than others and the sites were very unlevel with large gravel on the sites. There were two large dogs with collars running free. When we called to report them, the maintenance crew responded very quickly. The campground was not particularly convenient to downtown, and the road construction made it quite a challenge to...

Good job we took no notice of the previous reviewer as we found it to be an excellent Campground, although the road was a bit rocky, you do have to realise it is a campground, not a Freeway. The staff couldn't have been warmer or more friendly. On arrival we were greeted warmly and made to feel at home. We... More

Location: Terrible, uneven. Huge potholes as you enter RV site Size: small, would not recommend at all for sizable RVs Dishonest: reserved a pull through, and was given a different site, smaller site ( charge us more because of "balloning event" ) price gouging! Staff: unfriendly ! Would never rent there again or recommend to anyone else!

Thank you for taking the time to review us; we're sorry you did not have a positive experience. The "balloning (sec) event" is the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. It is our busiest time of the year, and as all parks in the area, we have special rates during the event. Still, we spend most of our time in the office during... More

I like the rustic feel of this campground but it does have drawbacks, most of which have already been mentioned. Sites are gravel and sometimes very uneven or slightly washed out. Wifi was terrible the two times I have stayed there. But if you want to feel like you are camping nearly in Santa Fe, I think it is great.... More

I really liked this campsite. It was only ten minutes drive out of Santa Fe, is on Route 66 and had a rustic feel to it. The camping pitches were in amongst the trees and at the top of the hills there were some lovely views. The camp ground was well kept. Our pitch had a pit where we could... More

Site#109 was perfect for our 36ft fifth wheel. Close to the cute dog park. Great hiking trail above campground. Very friendly staff. Laundry room was clean. Definitely will be back. Close to Eldorado shopping center.

We were scheduled for a three night stay and left after two. We had reserved a pull thru lot big enough for our 35 foot motor home and car that was being dolly towed. The site was uneven and it was difficult to level the RV. We left 3/4 slides in. Site 116 was a pull thru, but it was... More

Luckily we only stayed one night at this campground, we were not happy at all. Sites were crowded together, and not level at all. We tried moving our motorhome to multiple positions and still one side had tires off the ground. RV's on both sides of us used multiple leveling blocks. Roads need substantial grading, very rough driving on the... More

We stayed in this park for a week in a 35 foot fifth wheel at the end of August 2016. I will give an overall rating of 4 with challenges (I was close to a 3).
