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!!!... More

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!!

We liked it here. It has it's pros and cons, but it served our purposes. The staff were so friendly and helpful, they gave us so much local info that we'd not have known otherwise. Everyone had a smile! We had a back in site, which we thought would be rough on our 40 foot fifth wheeler because the camp... More

I would stay there again. Large pull thru sites. Tent camping is available. Cabins can be rented. They have a pool and show a movie every night. It was peaceful and quiet there. We stay in lot #69 which was a great site that faced the wilderness.

I would not recommend this campground or cabins to anyone. The grounds are very messy and unkempt. Bathrooms crowded, missing toilet paper, not functioning. Uneven camp sites. Very ruff around the edges.The filthy front door to the office should have been the tip off. Personel unfriendly, confrontational even when we decided not to stay another night. There is a sign...

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
