  • Another well maintained family park in Santa Fe; good for children, dogs to run around. Very close to Plaza/downtown area.  more »
  • We’re traveling tomorrow to Santa Fe as we do every year but looks like there’s a lot less snow. Can anyone give me a heads up? Thank you  more »
  • Use hking shoes for trails, but there are also turnouts that afford incredible views across the miles wide valley. The drive up and through the forest is stunning.  more »

  • This place Rocks! My family and I love camping and hiking here. Go check it out if you're visiting the Santa Fe area. You won't be sorry.
  • Sheltered camp ground. Fire ring. Bathrooms available. It is a very beautiful scenery. Found the trail map on a poster by the visitor center billboard and took a picture to keep on hand. Campsites are first come first serve. Gate locks at 10pm for some camp ground areas. We hiked the circle tail and the trail was marked quite well. We wanted to see the waterfall as well, but other hikers told us that it was too late in the season (September), and the waterfall was dried up. It is right outside of Santa Fe, but we still lost signal about 10 minutes before arrival. Also if your not a big camper they do have yerts you can reserve in advance and even the basic shelters are pretty nice compared to most places.
  • Very nice campground. The sites are spread out and have lean-to type shelters to put your tent under. We arrived at dusk on a Friday night, and there was only 1 site left. Due to how the sites are spread out, it's hard to tell which ones are available, so I would recommend arriving when it is light out. The gate in is closed from 10 pm-8 am. You can get out at any time though. (It's a one-way loop with tire spikes on the exit.) Yes, it's along the main road up to the Ski Basin, but we didn't have any issues with traffic/road noise. The ranger who came through as we were setting up was very friendly and helpful. There wasn't firewood available, so I would recommend picking some up at Smith's before you head out of Santa Fe. For only $10 a night, you really can't beat this campground.
  • I was Profiled Each Day i Stayed hear. My Ten Got Mugged and i was the only one Out there Camping at that time. Other campers showed up and the Ranger did Not Talk to them Every Day a Few Times a day. The ranger did not look in there Bags and People take over your camp site you Paid For and i got Tricked by the boss Ranger then one of the attendant ran at me when the ranger stop and talked to me so Being African American i Did Not Fill Welcome in this Park. I made a police report with the ranger and Could not get a Report Number or a Copy of the Report. So how Would You Fill? Being did in Such a Way.
  • The circle loop was beautiful. The views from many points were breathtaking. I couldn't believe how empty the trail was for a Saturday. Campsites were great. A bit annoyed by no water tap anywhere near the campsites though. Not even one working for all the sites.

Where to stay in Santa Fe

Though the downtown area contains most of Santa Fe's finest hotels, you can find plenty of equally comfortable inns and motels just outside this busy central district. Remember also that most of the city's centrally located hotels raise their prices during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to look for deals and make reservations well in advance. To experience the true spirit of outdoor New Mexico while on holiday, consider sleeping under the stars at a campground just a short drive from Santa Fe's major urban attractions.
