This was our second trip to this place. Obviously we really enjoyed it and decided to return this year. We stayed in cabin 76 which is close to the sink, showers, bathrooms, office and gift store. The restrooms are always clean, the theater wasn't open yet but that is not a problem for me. A lot of things open up...

Stayed here with a 27-ft travel trailer, and was impressed. Their web-based reservation page has some issues (we never received confirmation of our reservation...had to call to confirm). But, despite that, the park is a keeper. Great cell coverage. Good WiFi (which is better than 99% of RV parks I've stayed in). Fairly level spots. Clean restrooms. A fenced-in dog...

This place is just outside Santa Fe and is very clean. Tent camped and was nice and removed from the huge campers. Only down side is you can here the highway traffic. But it was so close to downtown which made it worth while.

We were very disapointed. All dirt. Nothing kept up. Smelled of sewer. I wish I would have went to the Koa down the road. This place is not worth it yuck!!! We paid for 4 days. The ad sounded good, but it was deceiving. Never again.

We booked our stay here pretty much out of desperation. Smell was horrible. It improved a tiny bit when the temperature cooled down. Dog yard dirty. We didn't have much trouble with the back in space, but I can see why other reviewers with big rigs don't recommend it.

After reading all the reviews on TripAdvisor I decided I might give it a try since it's close to home and pics seemed decent. Let's settle it now... this place is a complete DUMP and no one in their right mind who has camped in the past should ever stay here. After checking in I went to the site and...

This place states they are big rig friendly. Utter nonsense. It is a test of your skills. Trees grow too close to the interior roads and my scratch your rig. The lot we had for a 38 foot toy hauler was horrible. I could not unload my bike. The ground was so uneven, while unloading, my rig dropped and dented...

We like that thia campground has a dedicated tent section with trees to provide some shade. Bathrooms are nice though only 3 shower stalls in each so a lije can develop. But they are clean and water is hot. They also have a pool, movie nights, a playground for the kids, and a trail for walking the dogs or yourself!

It smells as if I am camping in a cesspool. I notified management and they told me I could move to a different site although they said I had the last available when I checked in yesterday. As I am in a popup camper that would take hours to pack up and move, I declined their crappy offer. NEVER AGAIN!!!...

Really enjoyed staying at the Rancheros while visiting Santa Fe!! When we had truck issues we had to call and change our reservation three times and were pleasantly accommodated each and every time!!! Thanks, Sarah!! The camping sites are narrow and tight, but that's the only negative whatsoever! Great place!!
