“We were originally hesitant due to reading a few bad reviews...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

... we've read, but decided to take a chance anyway because some of the pictures were nice. What is missing out of this review thread title is that the title of the park includes (words to the effect) "Trailer Ranch RV Resort and 55 plus Community". Evidently the park is dedicated to RV-ers in the front of the park, and to full-time 55 plus residents toward the back of the park, so we did have a significant amount of vehicle travel past our site toward the 55 plus community. However, it was not to the point of becoming an annoyance.

Cerrillos road, on which the park is located is in a high traffic area, so depending on the time of day, navigating your rig into the park might be a slight challenge due to traffic congestion and speed. However the road is large (multiple lanes), so there were no real issues for us.

Upon entering the park, it gave the feel of some of the parks in the movie "Long, Long, Trailer" - wonderfully homey feeling. The staff were friendly, and staff member guided us into our pull-through. Spaces seemed plenty wide, and consisted of gravel (no grass) which we love. We travel in a 32-foot fiver, and had no problems parking the truck next to the trailer, the site was so spacious.

The dog run was not far (inside the wall next to the road), and consisted of gravel/rock, and had a Mutt Mitt dispenser for convenience.

There are two laundry rooms - one for the RV park and another at the far back for the 55 plus community, but you can use either. I'd recommend taking the time to stroll to the back for larger washer/dryer units at only 2/3 the price per wash/dry.

Rest rooms were always clean and well supplied

The staff were extremely helpful in getting us set up for our bus trips into Santa Fe (I'd not drive my truck on those tight streets). They even highlighted which routes we needed to take, and highlights to see in town. There is a bus stop right outside the gate, but if you have the nerve to cross the busy street, the bus stop across the way will save you 20 minutes of bus time. Getting on the bus on the park side takes you farther away from Santa Fe to a station and mall before returning toward town.

As to things to do - shopping in Santa Fe art galleries and jewelry establishments were our goal. Canyon Road is definitely a destination if you like higher end art.

Some of the older reviews are out of date and out of touch. Regardless, this is a terrific location that can accommodate every type of RV including big rigs. It is located conveniently in town with a bus stop right outside the gate and the bus will take you just about anywhere in Santa Fe including to the downtown plaza and historic area. There are stores and restaurants nearby, within walking distance. The staff are friendly, helpful and available. We stay there whenever we return to Santa Fe, at least several times each year and will definitely stay there again. There could be a little noise from typical city traffic but depending on where you park it's negligible. Lovely setting, good parking spots, nice trees for shade.

This RV park is very well maintained and has large old trees that provide ample shade. We travel with a teardrop trailer which means we park near the restrooms/shower house. Very clean and spacious shower house. The grounds are very nice with water fountains in a couple of spots. The office staff was very pleasant. We would definitely stay there again. It is a small RV park which is a bonus but means you must reserve your spot in advance. There was a family of Ravens living in the large pine tree nearby that were very vocal but in a cool way and we became used to the sound of there squawking in the early AM! I am sure the larger RV units didn't hear them. There is some highway noise if you park near the entrance but again not bad enough that we would not return.

Park handles large RV's and has clean restrooms and grounds. Nice shaded areas for most of the spots with a good grassy area for get to-gathers. Like most commercial parks the spaces are close together and near a noisy main road. At least being close to Cerrillos Rd (Hwy 14) means you get easy access to the excellent bus service that Santa Fe has available. The managers were friendly and made our stay enjoyable. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: RV locations around # 15 are further from road and near green belt.

Couple own, female very unprofessional and saw her yelling at customer out in public. Small, dirty showers. half of washers 'out of order' and the others has odd odor to them. Very short wash cycle. Expensive for what you get. Very small sites and right next to sites on each side of you. Next to noisy main street traffic. Has a trailer home section, and people walk dogs without cleaning after their dogs - so, watch your step. Owners have strict rules and we felt like we were treated like deliquents instead of valued customers. Very pricey for what you get

Just finish a stay at the Trailer Ranch in Santa Fe. My husband & I normally stay in State or National Parks but the reviews up & around the Santa Fe area were not very good. After reading other reviews we decided on the Trailer Ranch which was a great choice for us. Our first contact was with Joanie at the front desk. She was super nice and made the check in very pleasant. After giving me tips on the Santa Fe area & a couple good restaurants; she walked us to our site and directed us in. The Park was very nice & well kept. We did not have our dogs with us but saw other people with theirs walking them around. I never saw any problems with poop or people not picking up after their pets. I did not go into the bathrooms so I can't comment on that. Otherwise, Trailer Ranch had such feel about the place and it's right near Old Town, and the bus did stop right out front. We felt safe and felt safe leaving the RV while exploring Santa Fe and the surrounding area. We would defiantly stay here again!

This is not a resort. It is a 55 plus trailer park with a few RV spots in the front section. Back-in gravel sites with some cement pads, just barely fit if you are a big rig and if you are over 40 feet you will stick out. The street is very wide so it is easy in and out but very little privacy. Great WiFi and local TV without using cable. Bus stop in front that takes you to town for one dollar round trip, lots of restaurants nearby, road noise was not noticeable and I'm a very lite sleeper. There are lots of mobile homes in the back area and some long term in the front section. There are older very tiny showers and older washers but all is clean. Location is the only reason we stayed here but the price is not discounted for the lack of updated facilities. Staff is friendly and helpful but the gentleman that backed me up should have let my husband direct me as I'm used to my husbands directions and I was uncomfortable taking directions from a person I did not know.

Room Tip: Sites just past the office and to the right will fit larger RV's and noise level is low.
