The Santa Fe Treehouse Camp and wilderness education nature preserve features 160 acres of highland desert forest. The land is covered in juniper, piñon, and ponderosa pine, and various cactus plants. The mountain wildlife campers enjoy seeing during various times of the year include curious broad-winged hummingbirds, shy cottontail rabbits, skittish lizards, grey fox and more.

The Santa Fe Treehouse Camp is perfect for tent camping, enjoying your cozy bed in your van or truck or sleeping out under the stars. The campsites are primitive...most do NOT have campfire pits or picnic tables though amenities included with your reservation are all-hours access to the outdoor kitchen with a community fridge, stove, microwave, propane grill, blender, coffee makers, plates, bowls, cooking and eating utensils and a dining area. Also available is the bath house with flush toilets, sinks, and showers.

Additionally, there a several rustic treehouse structures on the property as part of the legacy of this 30+ year old summer camp. (See separate Treehouse Cabin and Sunrise listings).

We host families searching for a nostalgic, unplugged getaway, friends and/or couples seeking a natural refuge from the daily grind, as well as solo campers looking for peace and quiet and a clear view of the celestial grandeur of the sun’s cycle or the brilliant show of stars in the night sky.

The camp is located about 20 minutes from Museum Hill, 25 minutes from Meow Wolf, Old Town Santa Fe Plaza and just 15 minutes to delicious food at Harry's Roadhouse or Cafe Fina.  Tree House Camp includes 160 acres of land bordering the US Forest Service area. There are beautiful views and easy access to Shaggy Peak, the  southernmost tip of the Rocky Mountains and the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range. Wander our land to enjoy a 20 minute hike to a creek (in wet weather) in the forest or climb up Shaggy Peak (about 2-6 hour round trip hiking, depending on your activity level). We look forward to sharing this unique, magical place with you in the “Land of Enchantment."

NOTE: We are up a 2 mile dirt road and are not near public transportation so you will need your own vehicle, motorcycle, bike, or horse! Be aware that the roads can be snowy or muddy in early spring, late fall and winter. At those times of the year we recommend a car with front-wheel, all track or four-wheel drive and good traction tires.

Please note that campsites are priced per person. Please add all guests 13 years and up to your reservation. (0-4 years old free, 5-12 years old 1/2 price, 13 and up $15. To pay the half priced child fee please notify me and plan to pay by cash or PayPal when you arrive.)

To maintain the tranquility of our guests stays we are taking these steps to curb late arrivals.

We recommend you consider arriving while it is still light out. It makes locating us easier and you will get to experience our beautiful sunsets and have more time to enjoy on this enchanted hilltop!

Checkin times are now as follows:

4-9pm 

Please do not come before 4pm without prior permission.

It is your responsibility to arrange a late checkin and keep the host notified of your changing ETA.

A $20 late fee will be charged from 9pm-10pm. 

If you arrive between 10pm-11am a $40 late fee will be charged.

After 11am the host has the right to refuse entry without a refund, or place you in a site they feel will be the least obtrusive to other guests. 

(Note: Quiet hours are from 10pm-8am)

We loved the camp. The campground was quiet, the stars were clear, the trails were rewarding, and the showers hot. Brad was friendly and very knowledgeable about the flora/fauna and history of the area. 10/10. Would stay here again.
