Santa Fe Treehouse Camp

58 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents156 acres · Santa Fe, NM
This is a non-smoking, no candle facility. The camp was founded 40 years ago as a summer camp for kids. Now we welcome adults, and other groups to enjoy the vast and wild high desert nature up on this ridge. There are beautiful views and access to Shaggy Peak, the southernmost tip of the Rocky Mountains and the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range. Wander our land to enjoy various level hiking trails including a 20 minute hike to a creek and waterfall in the forest (some steep spots and creek is intermittent) or climb up Shaggy Peak (seasoned hikers only please). NOTE: We are up 1.3 miles of dirt road (with 5-7+% grade in a few short stretches) and are not near public transportation so you will need your own vehicle! Be aware that the roads can be snowy, icy or muddy and rutted ( 4-wheel or All-trak recommended in certain times of year). We don’t guarantee the road will be plowed.

RLB Historical Stone Cabin

1 site · Lodging6 acres · Tererro, NM
The RLB stands for the last names of the given Ancestors (Rivera/Lawson/Bennett). This property & structures date back to President Grover Cleveland’s time. I found documents that he had signed for my grandfather. The main cabin was drilled to see how old it was. It was built somewhere around 1867 or 1868. The smaller cabins were built before the main cabin. The main cabin is one of the five Ladies of the Pecos River. There were only five cabins first built and settled in the territory that the logs were called dove and groove. The Stone cabin was built first and no record of the year other than it was before the main cabin. The cabin by the river was used as the kitchen until the main house was built. Then the River Cabin became the shed to store saddles and bridles, ropes & etc. My father moved the door from the side that is now a window to the front by the river and made it into a one room cabin. The front which is the kitchen now was added in the mid 80’s.

Cabins near Santa Fe guide

Overview

New Mexico’s capital city, Santa Fe, has no shortage of selling points. It’s the highest-elevation state capital in the US, boasts some of the purest air in the world, and enjoys 320-plus days of sunshine per year. The city is a treasure trove of history and culture, but we think the opportunities for nearby adventure are even more appealing. Santa Fe houses hundreds of miles of trails, nearby lakes and rivers, countless campsites, and millions of acres of undisturbed parks and nature reserves. Hikers, paddlers, and anyone who loves getting into nature all owe themselves a visit to the scenic region.

Where to go

Santa Fe National Forest

Santa Fe National Forest spans a whopping 1.6 million acres of densely forested hills, ancient volcanic rock formations, dramatic gorges and valleys, and some of the wildest territory in the U.S. today. The park offers year-round hiking across its dozens of trails, each of which takes you on a different route through the forest’s changing elevations. Other activities include bicycling, fishing, hunting, boating, Nordic skiing, and snowshoeing. Afterward, campers are a stone’s throw from a variety of tent camping sites near Santa Fe National Forest, as well as some great Santa Fe RV sites with full hookups onsite.

Carson National Forest

Amazingly, Santa Fe is flanked by not one but two massive national forests. Carson National Forest is almost as large as Santa Fe National Forest, offering 1.5 million acres of mountain ranges, shrubland foothills, high desert mesas, and, of course, dense forests of juniper and conifer trees. Area activities include biking and hiking trails at all difficulty levels, rivers to paddle down, vistas and viewpoints of Santa Fe’s terrain (any of which would make a great picnic area), and even opportunities for more unique pastimes like horseback riding and off-highway vehicle (OHV) riding. Camping areas abound near Carson National Forest, including sites with amenities like picnic tables, restrooms, grills, and fire rings.

Rio Grande Valley

Though the Rio Grande River is shared by several states and with Mexico, one of its most impressive stretches lies within New Mexico, just a short drive from Santa Fe. The Rio Grande Valley is made up of arid and desert lands, with grasses and shrubs offering a home to diverse wildlife species all along the powerful waters—the banks offer a chance to spot bighorn sheep, river otters, and more as you hike through the valley and its rugged, rocky trails. At the end of the day, Rio Grande campers are conveniently close to campgrounds with fishing spots, luxury glamping sites, beach sites, and even treehouse rentals.

Sandia Mountains

One of the most popular destinations in New Mexico, the Sandia Mountains are characterized by the many distinctive biomes depending on elevation, each home to dozens of day hiking trails. The mountainous trails offer vistas and viewpoints of the stunning Cibola National Forest along the way, and most end up at one of the range’s summits, providing panoramic views of the entire region. Snag tent sites at campgrounds near the Sandia Mountains.

When to go

Despite being in an arid desert climate, Santa Fe experiences four distinct seasons each year, from hot, dry summers (average high of 86°F in July) to chilly winters (average high of 42°F in January), with mild spring and fall seasons in between. For campers interested in hiking Santa Fe’s many parks and trails, the warmer months tend to be the best time, although crowds may be larger at smaller, popular locations. For those visiting in the height of summer, be aware of shade and water when doing longer hikes and activities. To avoid heat stroke and dehydration, pack excess water, wear appropriate clothing to prevent sunstroke, and use sunscreen.
