12 RV Parks near La Cueva, New Mexico
Jul 2016 - $5.00
No hookups or dump station. Pit toilets only. There are 4 loops and the weekends are busy, especially in the summer. It's a popular location for hiking and fishing. The falls are a moderate hike over a mile from the campground. McCauley Warm Springs are over 2 miles away via hiking trails only. Several fishing accesses within driving distance, but not at the campground. Lots of space between sites and plenty of shade. Camp hosts really keep this campground CLEAN. There are faucets that provide drinking water, but they are not threaded. - Terry P

This is a big-rig-friendly campground. Plenty of spots for our 32' triple-slideout travel trailer. The area is fairly heavily forested so solar power requires a lot of moving the panels throughout the day.
My only complaints are lack of threaded water spigots and no dump station. You'll need to fill up your tank before arrival. But there is water available for filling jugs, etc. Trash dumpsters are severely spilling over for some reason but otherwise it's clean and well maintained.
The sites are well laid out and for the most part are nicely spread out from one another. Sunday through Wednesday there's been no sound other than birds, thunder, and the breeze.
Some sites have a weak but usable Verizon 3G signal, others have a good 4G signal. Fellow campers with AT&T have no signal. Two years ago we had no T-Mobile signal (can't speak for present day but it's likely the same).
There is one special spot that has sewer, electric, and water. It appears to be a secondary host spot, but is currently not used by a host and is available if you're the lucky contestant. - Brad & Angela

This a wonderful place for camping while you enjoy the activities in the Jemez Mountains, such as fishing, hiking, and enjoying the hot springs. It's an easy hike to the waterfalls from here. The campground is large, with several loops of campsites. There is plenty of room to maneuver your rig. They are planning to upgrade some of the sites in 2013. Reserved sites are available.
Adminstrtor Note: This USFS area is temporarily closed. Check with the Ranger Office for updates. - Mojo goes

While this campground is tucked into a lovely Ponderosa pine forest, the mountain view and meadow views as advertised are lacking. The mountain view is the side of the mountain the site is set on and the meadow overlook includes a church, parking lot, trucks and farm equipment. The campground property has large storage containers, garage and more vehicles & equipment. Its located close to highway, so some traffic noise but not too distracting - surprisingly quiet. We had a few site choices when we arrived - we chose the front section near the highway it was a better location than the views of the storage container and garage. Water pressure was weak. Wifi was non-existent. Electric surged quite often at all hours of day & night. We were happy that we had a surge protector. A bit of a challenge maneuvering our truck when another trailer parked in next spot down hill from us. Full hook up and views for $33 was pricey especially since we did not receive what was advertised - campground website makes this place out to be more than what you get.
Will stay at national forest campgrounds when we are in the area again. - SlurLanceALot

Small privately owned (owner lives on property) RV campground that has full hookups and free wi-fi. Park is situated in the ponderosa pines of the Jemez mountains at an elevation of 7600 ft. Unable to acquire satellite due to pine trees and no over the air channels could be found but we didn't care with so much to do and explore in this area. - Gary Sanders

Older KOA. Has big rig access, but kinda tight. WiFi was spotty and Verizon signal was very weak. - rock077
Jul 2018 - $36.00
Located a few miles north of Santa Fe in a quiet valley away from the freeway. That's the good news; bad is there are no restaurants or fuel stations in the area. The park roads are dirt/gravel but wide and easy to maneuver. Sites are gravel and mostly level. We had no trouble getting level. There are trees separating every site but don't seem to interfere with satellite reception. They offer shade, depending upon the time of day. The staff was friendly and outgoing and we were escorted to our site. There is a dog run for the pets. The office has a fully stocked RV supply area. - 2sunkid

Wow! The campground is beautiful, well maintained and all the staff is friendly and very helpful. There are minerals in the water so we double filtered for drinking and cooking. The bird feeders are kept full and the birds are a delight. The only negative is if you have Verizon service you are in a black hole. We could not even receive phone calls on Mother's Day or from our home builders office - at our site. The owner has put up a booster in front of the office that works fairly well, but it is not convenient. - GailMOH

We have stayed in this park a few times for one-night stopovers but decided to try it for a week this time. The park is quieter than most, has a great walking trail for people and dogs, and is well run. The sites are not crowded, with lots of trees around, and all utilities worked well. The park is also located close to shopping, restaurants, and gas without having to go into Santa Fe. We would definitely stay here again. - gadabout80

A good park for tents or small campers perhaps but not so much for full size RVs. Roads really rough, poor water pressure, no sewer hookups, no TV, poor wifi. Not worth the cost.. - Mrfixitct

We recently stayed at Rancheros RV Park in Santa Fe NM and would not stay here again. Unless you're lucky enough to get one of the FHU's in the very front of the park the rest of the park is on a hill and has terrible dirt roads that are very uneven and narrow. The sites are on dirt and there are trees to maneuver around. We have a 40' motorhome and had to use extra wood to level. Our site had 50amp and water but the electric could not keep up with running our A/C and microwave or cooktop at the same time. The park uses well water and the water pressure was so low that we filled our fresh tank and used our water pump instead. We stayed a week and were not able to use their wifi after the 1st night but our Verizon worked well. The dump station is in a circle on a little hill with trees opposite so the whole area is not big-rig friendly. - Sheena123

Despite what Reserve America site says, rigs over 40' are going to be tight on roads and in sites. We scratched the coach a couple of times. The tree trimming on the turns could really use some attention.
That said, the campground is worth the effort. Deep in a forest with lots of hiking and areas to explore. The dogs loved it. The patio, table and fire ring setup was great.
Water to fill a tank is available near camp ground entrance, but the camp host has to turn it on. No dump station in the campground, but one is nearby.
Do not follow Google Maps, there are turns you just can't make. Only turn onto Artist Road from Bishops Lodge Road/NM590. - bobcovey

We cannot recommend this park as a place to stay over one night. It is better suited to people wanting to hike trails. There were only 8 RV sites with hookups. Three were vacant. Two of these did not have acceptable working electric outlets. The one we found was not level and positioned one's sleepy head 20 feet from a busy noisy road. It is difficult to find with poor directions. No staff available after 4:30 pm. - W Davidson

Reserved Site 49. Web site indicates site 49 is an RV site with no hookups. Actually is tent only and can not get RV in. No one on site during the week due to Labor Shortage and no refund available. Lost $52 due to in accurate information on the web site. Not happy. - Coleywhite

Campground has about 10 spaces with lights and water. The night we stayed Saturday night, half of those spaces were empty but reserved. The people never showed up. We stayed in overflow spot at bottom of the hill. We could smell the cars coming down the hill brakes overheating. New Mexico reservation system is confusing to out of staters. There was a wedding reception at the pavilion. Tthey had a lot of fun well into the night. If we were in lights and water spot it would be OK, but othe wise, I think we'll pass. Nice view up the hill of Santa Fe. - Jim Lee

Park is now closed to RVs. We tried to stay and were told by the on-site property that the Rodeo is no longer able to accept RVs. Apparently the Rodeo does not have the proper licensing/permitting to operate an RV park. The manager was nice enough to let us park for the night with no services since it was getting dark. - my12by60

We moved to this location after reading about it. You get what you pay for. We got full hookups close to the center of town. It was no frills, but the price was right. The location was quiet and secure. There are enough channels to get some decent television with your antenna. The only complaint was the need for a long sewer hose. Luckily I had that. Other than that, this place was great for the price. - Ugly SAM

In town location, great price. Not busy. Sandy sites, a bit unlevel with bonus horse droppings in your site. Gated entry, safe area and very quiet at night. Would stay again instead of paying twice as much or more at the other campgrounds. 30 amp only, back-in only. - sysadmin

Access to the park is easy. Signage was okay. Check in was quick and informative. We were guided to our site and the attendant insisted on guiding us in. Parameter roads are paved and in good condition. Our site (22) was a back in. The base was "WASHED" gravel with a table and concrete patio. Power water and sewer were well placed but the sewer receptacle was high and the gravel next to it was low (only points lost). Even with our trestle it was not easy to dump. For an urban park it was quiet. All of the buildings maintain the correct southwestern architecture. Propane is available on site both for bottles and under-slung tanks. Rules are not too restrictive but are adhered to. This is a very pleasant park. We paid $46.99 with tax including our G S discount. We feel that we received good value and would return if in the area. - Rollin Ollens

Enjoyed having a site with a cement pad. Reasonable close to downtown and lots of local shopping, including a Walmart very close. Why does this resort not have cable TV? - AvalonDF41
Aug 2018 - $52.00
Expensive, and you are mostly paying for the location close to town. The park itself is very nicely manicured and well kept, but the spaces are very tight and there is horrible noise, including sirens, all day from the 6 lane road the park is sited on. Still, it is very convenient if you want to be able to visit the attractions in Santa Fe without having to drive. You can get a bus or access the bike trail nearby. Customer service was professional and friendly enough. I was a little put out to find a pop up tent parked next to me - since what little privacy exists in your front yard space pretty much disappears when there is someone sitting there five feet away on the other side of a mesh screen. The neighborhood is a little sketchy, though it seemed safe enough during the day, and the park advises you to lock up bikes at night. - KAP99

This is our go to place when visiting Santa Fe as we left Carlsbad and within four or five hours can make it up to the outskirts of Santa Fe. This RV park is on a main road leading into down town. It is growing more and more each time we visit but the area has everything you need and easy access to the town. This is a smallish park with different types of spots, 30, 50, pull thru and back in are all different prices. We always opt for the cheapest. The fall is not busy but balloon festival is a mad house. The office staff is friendly and easy going but we have only ever been when the park was mostly empty so no idea how crowded it gets in busy times. Verizon cell, over the air TV and sat signal are all great. I even used the wifi for a large amount of my data needs this time. There is another park near by but others are further out so this location is best for us. - FrancisandRenee

Okay, first off, we were there during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta so every park within 50 miles of Albuquerque was charging 'festival rates'. That being said, the normal rate would be more acceptable. The park is kind of hard to find (signage is not good on the main street), but look for the signs for The Lofts. It appears this park has seen better days but, again, there are not a lot to choose from in Santa Fe. The park is tricky to get into and getting back out is a right turn only onto the main drag. Not a big issue but something to be aware of. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

We stayed during Balloon Festival week. We had to camp on the parking lot with no amenities (thus the $38 charge) which was fine since we were told we could use the showers and restrooms. As it turned out, the restroom had not been cleaned in days and most probably weeks. There were balls of hair mixed with plain ole filth along the walls. Sinks were filthy. Hair balls in the showers for 3 days. And the really worst part....the "cleaning man" sat outside the bathrooms every day playing on his cell phone. When he had sat there long enough I guess, he drove off. He "put in his time" but never actually cleaned anything. Disgusting. The whole place was creepy and not well kept up. We will not stay here again. - quertyuiop

We visit this rv park 2-3 times a year. It is normally very clean but this time we noticed significant trash under the bushes at our campsite. Additionally, we were parked close to the clubhouse and the farolitos that usually light up the tops of the stucco walls surrounding the patio area were melted and completely ruined, yet had not been cleaned off the building. It looked very bad, very messy. We brought both issues to the attention of the office workers halfway thru our week long stay, but nothing was done to clean things up. For the increased prices, we hope they act to keep the park clean. It is a beautiful location and the staff is pleasant. - Camping Canine

We enjoyed our three-week stay at this campground. It was a good base to visit Santa Fe, Ghost Ranch and other surrounding points of interest. The mountain views and sunsets from the campground are beautiful. We really enjoyed the sculptures throughout the campground-a very nice added touch. Our site more than fit us, which is always nice. It is one of the nicest commercial campgrounds that we have found near a larger/tourist city. A unique combination of pretty views, sculptures, a site that fit us, and it was quiet ... a mix that we have not found otherwise. The only negative is site spacing in general (side to side) is not spacious, but not bad-in our particular site, it was fine. Also, the people who work here are very nice and customer service focused (when making reservations, checking in, etc.)-which further adds to the appeal! We will return. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

We have stayed here many times in the past and have always enjoyed our visits. The value rating is for the Festival fee we were charged for arriving on the last day of the Balloon Festival (Oct. 15, 2018). We didn't attend the Festival but were charged the extra $39.00 per night for the rest of the 4 nights we spent at the campground. We were told that the extra fee was to pay for extra help for services and cleanup for the caravans during the festival. Unfortunately, we will not be staying here again. - WalterL
