Here's a second for Indian Market in Santa Fe! I wish I could go! (Alas, ain't gonna happen until I don't have this job any more.)

We have tried 3 campgrounds—

Rancheros de Santa Fe is an older park. We checked in after dark, had to drive around and around because we could not find the campsite, finally did, a piñon tree scratched the side of the trailer because the trees were not trimmed. The sewer was much too high for an Airstream. It is an older park with dense trees, but difficult to get around in the fall when it gets dark early.

Next, Santa Fe Skies: Nice views, few trees. Mostly sand and gravel and must be very hot in summer. Terrible wifi, had to sit at some tables behind the office to get anything. There were always several people there, so you get to meet people and complain about wifi. When I and others complained, they suggested we could leave. They were willing to call the next campground to see if there were vacancies, but we didn't feeling like uprooting ourselves.

Trailer Ranch: Best so far. Only problem is you have to make it before 5:30 pm in summer, 5 in winter—they don't want anyone finding a spot by themselves and presumably running over something. If we are coming from home, it's tough to make it in time. But wifi was good, people are nice, trees, closer to downtown. Crossing Cerillos to make a left towards the plaza can be a challenge, but most people make a right and do a U at the next opportunity.

All the others according to reviews are mediocre or worse.

Is it just me?

Or is there a dearth of decent campgrounds near some places that are natural tourist destinations? Not only does there seem to be very few choices near Santa Fe, but I know that the lack of quality campgrounds around San Antonio has been discussed as well.

Those nighttime lows of upper 50's and low 60's make it very nice. We sleep comfortably with the windows open. The daily high's don't last long and the low humidity makes it comfortable. For me, those temps are heaven! No A/C needed for me. I would imagine they are well into their monsoon season so the afternoons cool quickly from passing clouds and short rain bursts.

This one for Santa Fe says low to mid 80's, 14% Humidity, and night lows of upper 50's: http://weather.yahoo.com/united-stat...ta-fe-2488867/

Hi Guys well Rancheros De Santa Fe, is the best for the value we stayed last summer from Apr till Nov. it does get booked up in Indian market time. Tom the owner is a great guy and does a good job keeping it up and note this is as close to camp ground staying with out going to state or fed park, They try to keep it nature driven but with connivances like wifi, pool nice little movie theater. I have had many of my airstream friends come to be with us last year not a formal rally but a few units having a good time , Sisters on the fly come in every year also try it you may just fall in love with the park as we did and we been going there for 5 years and Indian market. My Blog has pics of the park also

Y'all are awesome! Thank you so much! We will be staying just one night wherever we go, on our way to Colorado. The AC is not a problem for hubby and I. I just worry about my 1 year old. But y'all have settled my fear of it being too hot. Thanks again!

I'm going to hijack this thread a bit, we will be visiting friends in Los Alamos in a few weeks (sans AS). We will be staying for a week. While we have a number of sites we are thinking about visiting, I wonder if any of you guys have your favorite must see/do things (we won't be doing casinos). I know the fires may restrict some things. We plan on visiting Taos and Santa Fe, some pueblos, maybe some art museums etc. Our friends (who don't live in Low Alamos, but own a home there) have suggested a number of things to do. Just thought I would pick your brains too.

Thanks

Why not actually camp in the Santa Fe area instead of staying at subpar RV spots? You can camp at Black Canyon campground up Hyde Part Road (a federal spot up the the ski area road). It is close to town. It is next to a state park campground. I live in Santa Fe but camped at Black Canyon in 1995 before I moved here. I loved the federal campground at the time. It is still a wonderful place.

We have a fire not too far from the ski area so call to make sure camping is open if you're coming soon. Sorry for the fire! Santa Fe is beautiful now. The downtown was packed with tourists yesterday.
