Very nice well run campground with good amenities. Military discount as well, thank you. We stayed 2 nights and the pad we had was 42a, the actual tent pad was a tad tiny, as our tent did not fit. The fire ring was too small as well. Everyone had a nice big fire ring. Other than those two things it... More

We enjoyed our stay, we did the tent camping. When you drive into the campsite, it seems like close in area, but the spaces are good space apart/privacy. Its like moving up from a KOA. Staff was very friendly and helpful. clean bathrooms, showers. Has nice little store on site, for basic camping food needs, fire wood....etc. easy to find.... More

We stayed at Rancheros de Santa Fe for a week, as we spent a week touring Santa Fe. The park is only 20 minutes from the Plaza. We found the staff to be very friendly. What we found very appealing, was the way the sites were set up. It is not like a parking lot. It was more like camping... More

This campground is a Good Sam park. Well it is a place to park your R V for the night. The roads through the park will beat your rig up. They don't plan to change that. They were like that 3 years ago when we were there. Spaces are really narrow. Don't plan to sit out by your rig. The... More

We checked in here on March 14th after first checking at the KOA down the road. Park was just beginning to open for the year but everything we needed was already open and useable. Clean bathrooms and showers, great cable tv service and WIFI! Saw previous comments about the roads in the park being rutted but it looked like they... More

We recently checked into the Rancheros de Santa Fe with our motorhome in the late afternoon and paid for a 2 day stay. Since no full hookups were available we accepted a partial hookup site relatively far from the office. The roads in the park were deeply rutted winding narrow dirt trails. I mean DEEPLY rutted - the worst we've... More

So glad we only stayed here one night . Very tight and cramped . Very rude. Laundry is horrible and expensive . The rv park has bad location way out of town. The only nice thing was that it was close to Harrys Roadhouse which is a great fun place to eat. We are grateful that the office recommended it... More

We stayed there and the staff was very rude. They acted like we didn't belong because we were from out of town. By far the worst experience i ever had with a campground. Would not recommend it and just a short trip down the road is a koa that is far better.

We stayed overnight on 8/3/14 while on our way to Colorado from Texas. The 50 amp spaces do not have adequate space once a trailer's slides are out. The picnic tables are smashed in between over grown hedges. This is not a camping site but more of a parking spot. On our return trip 8/9/14 we checked in after driving... More

This place seems out of the way but it's so nice it's worth stopping here. They have great facilities including a theatre (which was showing Hunger Games Catching Fire when we were there), a pool, nice laundry and shower facilities. We had a blast while we were there and so did the kiddos.
