Campground is under new ownership as of September 2023 and they are working hard to make this a great campground. Our reservation was lost due to transfer over to a new system but Liz and Sergio worked hard to find a spot for us close to my sister who’s reservation did not get lost. Ours wasn’t the only lost reservation. So I’d say call to confirm before arriving. We were in site 103 and Verizon cell service and their wi-fi was spotty at best. Laundry room was great, bathrooms were clean…on-site... Read More

Laundry room was great, bathrooms were clean…on-site staff was great and proximity to historic Santa Fe was perfect. Would I stay again? In general yes but it seems the spaces are too small for the rigs they are putting in them. Very narrow spots…not much room to sit outside and if you have a tow vehicle forget it…crammed in way too tight. There are some plants and trees between a lot of the sites which is nice but still a bit too close for my liking. I’ll watch the improvements being made…IMO remove some spots and raise the prices a bit to make up the difference. We paid top dollar because it was Ballon Fiesta weekend and I’m not sure it’s worth an up charge. I wish them good luck on their new endeavor!

First item on the rules and guidelines states: "no refunds". I think that says it all! The park is old, very tight, sites are not level, no picnic table, streets are narrow and almost impossible to move thru. The no refunds is stated for the very reason that after seeing the site, the idea to move out and find another part is a costly mistake. The location is fine, but the park needs heavy updating to provide for big rigs, as it is now this park is NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY. Honestly don't know... Read More

Nice park. Site has small, pretty trees - not big enough for shade, but nice feel and gives some separation between sites. Facilities are nice, and staff are friendly and helpful.

The park makes you remember how camping used to be - trees and picnic tables, a fun pool and nice staff. Feeling refreshed!

People are very nice and helpful. I guess I expected more, the roads in the park need to be regraded as they are awfully bumpy. The camping spots for the most part are small, and not close to being level. The wifi is unbelievably bad as is the tv connection. Tv reminded me of the 1960's only there were no rabbit ears to move around to get a better picture.

Due to vehicle issues we were only able to stay here one night but the staff was very understanding. The grounds are beautifully maintained with lots of trees and a walking path around the perimeter. The pool was just about to be opened and it looked very nice. We would definitely stay here again. It was very peaceful.

This was our first Good Sams campground and our first stay with our new RV at that! The staff are incredibly friendly and the property feels like you are in a national forest and a homey campsite at the same time. The pool wasn’t yet open at the end of April (still too chilly) but that didn’t matter. In one weekend, we visited Meow Wolf, Santa Fe Axe Throwing, Santa Fe Brewing Company, La Tierra mountain bike trail system and the Santa Fe Art Museum in Historic Santa Fe. All that one one day and... Read More

Booked three nights in July 2020 during covid event. We are working remotely and capturing family time during this horrible event. We asked to extend our stay two nights due to fluctuating work demands. We explained this to staff. It turned out we only needed one extra night, but the management refused us a refund. Instead of listening to our situation and telling us we could bill day-to-day, they billed us in full in advance. The campground is only about 25% occupied if that, so the management... Read More

The campground is only about 25% occupied if that, so the management decision is one of pure greed and completely counter to what I think of is the spirit of RV. I would never do business with someone this dishonorable.

We stayed here two nights in July, 2020. We're from Albuquerque, so this was just a quick "local" getaway. This is a pretty sprawling campground, with all kinds of sites (tent only, large sites with only 30 amp service, some sites with full hook up, others with just water & electric and a few water only. Shop carefully! We got a full hook up 50amp site. There is a row of these in the southwest end of the park. These are VERY narrow sites. We snugged right up against the hookups, and still...

This is a pretty sprawling campground, with all kinds of sites (tent only, large sites with only 30 amp service, some sites with full hook up, others with just water & electric and a few water only. Shop carefully! We got a full hook up 50amp site. There is a row of these in the southwest end of the park. These are VERY narrow sites. We snugged right up against the hookups, and still didn't have room on the other side to put out our rug. There are low bushes between the sites, so the awning worked, but very little room for chairs and such. Also, the water pressure was quite low. Weakest shower I've had in our rig. Not sure if this changes with the number of campers, though, since it is well water. Our area was VERY busy and full of some big rigs (most from Texas). Oh, and wifi is spotty. Our site literally had a repeater stuck in the ground right next to our rig, and we got a strong signal, but pretty weak internet. I had better luck just using my Verizon iphone's hot spot. But it was still nice. It's got a rustic feel, but didn't necessarily feel run down. BRIEF interactions with the staff were friendly enough. We also enjoyed the on-site hiking trail. It is only .5 miles, but making the circle a couple of times was nice on our last morning. I can certainly see us staying here again. It IS pricey (our two nights, with Good Sam Discount plus tax, came to $102), but that's Santa Fe for you!

Very tight sites and roads. Barely enough room to open our slides and awning. Nice pool but at 70 degrees as no heater. Older facilities lacking updating. Finally, intolerant of late departure! Good location near Santa Fe and really the only option other than KOA which was basic.

Staff was very friendly and all buildings clean and park well maintained. Would highly recommend staying here!

We LOVED staying at Rancheros!! Great facilities, each spot is fairly private, clean, very well kept, and friendly people!!
