Mediocre. That's the best word coming to mind. The positive: Nice layout, easy access to pull-through sites. Nice landscaping, but could be updated and kept up better. Full hook-ups *. The negatives: Close to I-5 highway and noisy outside. Pool and indoor spas were closed due to weather? * A $2.00 surcharge for 30 Amp and $3.00 charge for 50 Amp? Why not just include in overnight charges? "Lots" of rules & regs, gave us the impression there must be some need - local issues? Can't dump gray water? WTH? We did anyway - we were hooked up!! We tried but failed to find a warm and fuzzy feeling for management. Just say communication problems. Wireless access was weak and not very reliable. Still, overall the problems weren't overwhelming, we weren't bothered by anyone and we needed a hang-out for a couple days due to weather and work catch-up. Worked fine for that. Wouldn't camp here for pleasure.
This was an unbelievably beautiful park. It was a little tricky getting a 39' RV down into the canyon with steep grades, blind curves and switchbacks. We smoked the brakes on the trailer coming down, but it was carefully doable and more than worth it! Hiking the canyon is a must. There is horseback riding available which we didn't get to do but heard it was worth it. A one night stay turned into 3. There were herds, flocks, whatever of wild turkey running around, along with deer and roadrunners (our favorite) and several other bird species. They had a nice gift shop and a small take out restaurant/grill. This is a must see if you're into canyons, photography, wildlife and awesome scenery!
We just happened to stumble on this gem of a campground. Beautiful waterfront sites on a huge man-made lake, water/electric with a dumping station which was easy to pull our big 39' RV through. We were only planning on an overnight but stayed 3. Very few campers there in March so we were lucky to have the place to ourselves. They had nice hiking trails, friendly and helpful park attendants, a small store, and supposedly great fishing, although drought had the lake at an all-time low so there wasn't much fishing going on. It was just a couple of miles off I-40 and well worth it.
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.
