Older KOA. Has big rig access, but kinda tight. WiFi was spotty and Verizon signal was very weak. - rock077

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

This campground is actually located 21 miles north of Pecos NM on Highway 63 and Forest Road 555. The last 5 miles are on a one lane highway, but the road is wide and there are pull outs to make passing other vehicles easy. The campground host is wonderful. He will help you find a site if needed and will also let you hook up to the electricity on the second host site if it isn't being used. The forest setting is beautiful and campsites are large and well-spaced. Altitude is about 8800 feet, so the weather is cooler in the summer than it is at lower altitudes. We plan on coming here again when we pass through the area next year. - Bobbi1948

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

Having stayed here before, we knew what to expect, but this experience was even worse than ever. 50 amp service was available, but at a premium that we weren't advised of. No ota tv and no satellite signal could be received from our site. Roads were very dusty and we were routinely showered with dust which settled on everything. Anyone desiring to "get away" would probably be satisfied here if they were accepting of the rates. This will be our last visit here. - Dwd40

A quiet shady resort off the beaten path and a nice respite from today's world. Just what we were looking for. Trees blocked the Safelite, short distance to the golf course, and plenty of places for a nice leasurly stroll. We will be back! Thanks for the friendly accommodations. - k-n-r

Pendaries is the most peaceful RV park we've experienced. The sites and trees are huge. There are plenty of places for serious hikes; some from the RV park property into the forest. The views from the steep hike to the old turquoise mine are gorgeous (access the trail between sites 28 and 29). Pendaries is more private residences than RV park. T-Mobile does not work in the park. There is no OTA TV but some sites do have a clear shot for satellite TV. The Pendaries golf resort across the street offers some seasonal restaurant opportunities and social functions like a car show, chili cook-off, etc. There is an abundance of nature and quiet; we've seen bears, turkeys, birds, etc. The park office offers a few camp store supplies, books and videos. There is a clubhouse and the private residence owners invite the RV park visitors to their social functions like pot luck dinner, ice cream social, etc. Everyone is very friendly. I esp. like that there are no campfires in Pendaries so my RV and lungs don't get filled up with smoke. - Dirt Biker

Stay here only if you have no other options. Sites not level, just horrible. I'm used to having to level, but this place obviously does not care enough to work on the sites. Water pressure is gravity fed so it is very low pressure. You may need to use bottled water to flush your toilet properly. The park provides OK WiFi but not cable. The park also has a dog that is allowed to run loose and is unattended by the owners. The dog can be seen going from camper to camper peeing on them. We will never come back here. - ewew

Not a good RV park and way below KOA standards. Sites were not level and even with blocks we were unable to level. Very very low water pressure. Horrible sharp stickers everywhere. Our poor dog was covered every time he went out and we stayed on the road. Owners had excuses for everything but did nothing to remedy the problems. - Rollin Gypsy

Lovely area off 25. New owner trying very hard to America's improvements. Most sites Not level. Most rigs had to use blocks, 2x6 wood to place under jacks. No cable. Laundry excellent. Staff very friendly. Sand spurs everywhere around sites and on way to dog park. Owner filled in dog park with soft, white, cedar shavings like that used in hamster cage. The dog park was large, fenced area down a hill with steps. No handrail for safety. Lots of nasty sand spurs in area from steps to dog park gate also. Bring dog boots to protect paws, socks and tweezers if you have a dog. Low rating is for the terrain. Hoping new owners just puts gravel everywhere with paved sites to minimize the sand spurs. - Andrea W
