This park is okay for an overnight or longer but severely lacks maintenance of its landscaping. Grass/weeds are several feet tall; so tall that the original plantings are visually lost and fighting for their lives. To say this is natural NM environment is to insult mother nature; look around NM you'll not see anything like this in the open. The main building is a nice architectural rendering of NM style but like the landscaping it is lost to any functionality and has been seemingly abandoned except for check in. I'm referring here to open areas and patios on what I guess is back side. This could be a top park with some work but it isn't now. Sorry Woodall's this is NOT a 5/5. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Motorhome.

We liked that the park was on the outskirts of Santa Fe and very near I25. It was nice and quiet at night with beautiful starry skies and sunsets. The power and water were good and we liked the natural landscaping with plants from the area. It was very clean, the sites were a little uneven but no problem. The WIFI signal was good but the speed was so slow a snail is faster! We stayed for a week @ Labor Day and enjoyed seeing Tent Rocks National Monument, Bandelier National Monument, and all that Santa Fe has to offer! We'll be back on our travels through the area...

This is a great campground, with the best public restroom and showers! Sure there is no grass and large evergreen trees, but this is New Mexico and the campground is true to its natural setting. The staff was very nice and downtown Santa Fe had the only roads that were unlevel, because my site was right-on without using any blocks. The PUG also liked the grounds and appeared very pet friendly. We will stay again when visiting the Santa Fe area! We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here in a 34 footer. We had RV trouble so we extended our stay. The park is family run. They were all nice and helpful. The location of the high desert makes the site subject to strong afternoon winds but also cooler temperatures. The Wi-Fi works great in the clubhouse and the Wi-Fi that's available in the campsite is expensive. We would stay here again. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a clean, maintained facility with friendly and knowledgable staff. Sites are gravel with minimal grass and no shade. The views are good. Highway access is nearby. We agree with other reviews that this park is somewhat overpriced. Most sites appeared to be occupied by temperary residents rather than long termers. Our site was somewhat unlevel, but that problem was easily resolved by moving our 5th wheel forward prior to setting up. Grass in dog walk has burrs.

Not a friendly camp! They say they are pet friendly, but your pet can't walk on the grass or go anywhere! Strict rules, so I guess if you like rule stay here!! We stayed for a week and it was the most uncomfortable place we have stayed! We won't be back! We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is the 3rd time I've stayed at the park. I have seen some improvement It would probably be the best park in the area but it is not pretty. As mentioned by another reviewer the weeds have taken over. The landscaping is non-existent. The office/club house has a bare concrete floor. The roads and pads are gravel and not very level. The entry gate is very narrow. Be careful pulling in. If the roads were paved and the landscaping upgraded it would go a long way to making this a 9 or 10 park. I was there the week before the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - thus the park was full. I will stay here again when in the area but hope the visuals improve.

I was confused reading the extremes of the previous ratings but decided to try it anyway. If you are looking for palm tree lined streets and concrete pads with grass in between, then you won't like this park. If, however, you realize that you are in the high desert and that's the landscape you'll get, you will be happy. This is a prefectly good park, if only a bit overpriced. A good place to visit the Santa Fe area and it does have good views of the surrounding valley and mountain ranges. It can be hot and dusty during the summer days, but the evenings are cool. I wouldn't hesitate to stop here again and couldn't think of a reason not to use the park. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent one night at this park while passing through. The views are nice, as previous posts have mentioned. The park is gravel, with little grass, and even less shade. The sites are a bit un-level. When I leveled my fiver, the front end was too low to even think about using my kingpin brace. The local broadcast television stations were OK as far as reception goes. The folks up front were helpful and courteous. They provided us with a map of the area, and some restaurant recommendations. My wife commented that the restrooms were the cleanest she had ever seen. Beware of the wind. When we returned from an afternoon in Santa Fe the folks at the site in front of us were trying to get their awning unwrapped from around the top of their rig. The wind had made a wreck of it. However, I don't think the folks at the campground have power over the wind. (I could be wrong on this) We plan on stopping at a different park on the way back through. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We also, were concerned about previous reviews of this park, but decided to try it and am so happy we did. We can't believe we're in the same park as past negative reviews. It's a wonderful park that is close to the interstate, but far enough away to see it in the distance and not hear it. Our site was easy to level. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Yes, it's gravel, but most of the parks we stay at are too. Maneuvering around roads was no problem and we're in a 40 foot motorhome with a tow. View is wonderful, mountains all around. Landscaping is natural xeroscape that lets you blend into the natural New Mexico greenery. To landscape with grass and plants would make the park look so unnatural. We can't wait to get back here again when we can spend more time. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Motorhome.

In reading some of the 'extreme' negative posts about this park, I can only assume they are being generated by the 'competition' in Santa Fe. I have been visiting this park since they began constuction and considering this is a build as you go project - feel they are progressing nicely. Park and facilities are clean and well maintained. Big Rigs can navigate the roads without difficulty. As far as complaints about the wind, one will need to talk to a power far higher than the park management to get anything done on that front.

The wide range of reviews were a concern to us. However, we decided to give it a shot. Here is what we found. The ownership was extremely friendly and accommodating. The owner's son stayed after hours one evening to enable me to check e-mail in their office. On our final day, my family went skiing at Santa Fe Ski area and they allowed to check out at approx. 7 PM without charging us. The location has little protection from wind and sun, but the star gazing was wonderful. The bathrooms are probably the cleanest public facilities I have ever seen. We have only been RVing since October, but this is definitely one of the better parks we have have visited. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We almost didn't stay at this park because of some negative ratings previously listed. This park is very nice, has gravel sites that aren't too close to neighbors. Beautiful views, easy access to roads around Santa Fe. Water hookup heater was great in winter conditions. Friendly staff & very clean facilities. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Motorhome.
