Outside Santa Fe
We stayed here 2 nights in our Motor home. This is an old KOA park. Sites were okay but not great, dirt slabs and dirt roads. Wifi signal is very weak so don't count on using it much. The folks at check in we're very friendly and gave us directions into downtown Santa Fe. Next time I would check out another park that doesn't have dirt roads. We had a Good Sam discount.
This RV park is just ok
We stayed here because it looked like we would have a little more shade then at Santa Fe Skies RV park. The first site they put us in was a pull thru but it was so narrow we could barely walk down the passenger side of our 39 ft coach. We ask to be moved the next day and they put us in a big rig pull thru site (128) towards the front of the park. It was longer but still narrow and pretty much no shade. Although we were facing the road it was the wrong direction for afternoon shade. Even if we put our awing out we wouldn't have shade on the passenger side of the rig which is where we put our chairs out. All the shade was on the driver side of the rig but who wants to sit by your sewer hoses? So the days that we were at the park in the afternoon, we stayed inside.
This park does however have a nice pool and playground for folks who travel with children. The laundry room on the other hand was not my favorite. It's bad enough I even have to wash clothes but to have to do it in an old run down laundry room is the pits. The machines were old and needed some cleaning and there was no sink or paper towels. I found a dirty old sink outside the LR but still no paper towels. It cost $2 per load and $1 per dryer. Too expensive!
The dig run area was disgusting to say the least! There were bugs EVERYWHERE! I don't mean just ants but bugs like flies, ants, and even termites. I hated taking my dog in there so I would walk him around the park and just cleaned up after him.
It rained almost every night so the place was a bit muddy most of the time. They tried to fix the roads after each hard rain but it was still just so muddy. I know they can't stop the rain but it would be nice if the roads were asphalt. I dint know, maybe that's asking for too much of this park.
If we are ever in the area again, I think we'll be staying at the Santa Fe KOA which is about a mile up the road from this park and the sites are facing the correct way to provide afternoon shade.
A good thing about this park is that its not too far from downtown Santa Fe.
Oh yea, one last thing that bugged me. We actually stayed here for a week but didn't get the weekly rate because we paid for 3 nights at first and when we moved to the second site we paid for additional 4 nights. We were told we couldn't get the weekly break because of the way we paid. Pretty stupid!
So I'm not real sure of how much we paid per night bout it might have been between $35-$40 a night.
