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.

Rancho Algo Mas

1 site · RV, Tent7 acres · Ohkay Owingeh, NM
This land was previously undeveloped when we bought it in 2011, having only been used as horse grazing land and chile production in the 1960s. It is characteristic of inherited irrigated properties in the area and is about 150 ft wide and half a mile long that extends from the traditional irrigation ditch (acequia) at the top of the property to the river drainage. In the 1940s the Chile Line Railroad ran through here on the way to Espanola. Learn more about this land: Nestled in the river valley halfway between Taos and Santa Fe, near the confluence of the Rio Chama and the Rio Grande, this off-grid property is just north of Ohkay Owingeh, where indigenous settlements have existed for many centuries due to rich soil and available ground and surface water. In the 1500s settlers from Mexico came to farm land for New Spain. These historical Spanish and Native influences and identities run deep in this area, as well as the more recent influences of hippie dropout culture in Taos, Ojo Caliente, and Dixon. We have lots of book recommendations if you want to learn more about the complexity of culture and identity in northern New Mexico. Our 5 acres property is a narrow agricultural strip that extends from the irrigation acequia (ditch) at the top of the property down through a dense bosque (forest), ending in a path to the placid river bend of the Rio Grande. The campsites lie midway, among the privacy of the cottonwood bosque and adjacent pond. It is a short walk to a riverside perch with stairs to the shallow water and kayak launch. Other activities on the property include visiting the goats, chickens, and our friendly dogs, playing on the scrap-built playground, swinging on the pond swing, wading in the river, fishing, and doing some beginner kayaking the pond. This property is at its best late Spring through mid Fall when all is green, the pond is full and river is cool. Winter camping is still doable but may include snow, frozen pond, and leafless trees, and sandhill cranes. The site has a nice firepit and we have lots of wood. Summertime means mosquitos so come prepared with some serious sprays or creams- and don't bother with citronella candles, they won't be effective here. You will have a lot of privacy in the bosque, and it is relatively quiet from urban noise. You will be in agricultural and farm country, so you will be amongst the sounds of roosters, sheep, goat, peacocks and horses doing their thing in the farm land all around you. There can be dogs barking so if any of this noise bothers you you will want to bring earplugs.

Two Hawk Ranch

8 sites · RVs, Tents12 acres · Llano, NM
Two Hawk Ranch is comprised of 12 acres of high mountain valley meadows, hay fields, Acequias, trees and the Rio Chiquito. Yes, we are located at approximately 7,800ft elevation. My husband and I stumbled across this beautiful and serene property by accident in 2020 just as Covid hit. We feel blessed to be here and feel the need to share it’s calming, restful qualities. We have three adult children and have three grandchildren. We also have eight international children as we hosted international students for four years. You are welcome to come sit by the fire and be social or just do your own thing. Learn more about this land: Sites located across the property for up to 8 groups. The RV camping is located near one of our horse corrals and above our irrigation Acequia, above or next to the house, or in the field down by the arena after haying is complete (usually after the first week of July as long as the rain cooperates). Can back in or pull through and has 110v power nearby. No water to hook up to, but we can fill your tanks via hose by the house or arena. Other sites available if you don’t need power, or have a generator.  Property is within a 100yds of national forest service that gives access to off-roading, hiking, biking, horse riding, fishing, and winter snowshoeing, cross country skiing, etc. We are located just off the High Road to Taos in Llano, 29 miles south of Taos and 55 miles north of Santa Fe. We are eight miles from Ski Sipapu and eight miles from Rio Santa Barbara Canyon.  Your well-behaved pets are welcome. We also have one great dane (Raggy), a great dane mix (The Morrigan), one ranch cat (Sasha) and four horses (Gentry, Shadow, Mattie & Jr G). The dogs are a rescue of some kind. The Morrigan is black, 3.5 yrs old and comes out of a rescue in AZ. She went in with her litter as a 5 month old puppy, and she came here about a year later. She is reticent and suspicious, so ignore her and she will come up to you on her own; continue to ignore her. Ragnar (Raggy) is our most recent rescue and is from Las Cruces. He's 3 yrs old and a merle. He suffers from anxiety and fears children. We are working him through his fears, and he is doing really well. The weather here tends to run cooler, as we are located in the mountains in a small valley at approximately 7,800 ft above sea level. In the spring through fall, temps will average from mid 40°F up to mid 60°F at night and mid 60°F up to mid 90°F during the day. Temps can get into the 100°F's in the summer, but that is rare. Generally if the sun is out, it is warm or hot even tho the actual temps are not. It's a high-altitude affect. The opposite is true as well. Cloud cover will feel cooler. We also experience monsoon style rains that occur in the afternoon generally starting in July and running into August or later. In the late fall through early spring during winter, the average temps usually run from 0°F up to mid 20°F at night with occasional dips into negative temps and in the day generally run from mid 20°F up to the mid 40°F range. Same as above - if the sun is out, it will feel warmer, etc. We do hay the fields, so we may have tractor activity going on in the late spring and early summer. In the winter we will be clearing snow from the roads and feeding hay. Can't wait to see everyone this year!

Camp Evenly Under The Stars

4 sites · RVs, Tents2 acres · Los Ranchos De Albuquerque, NM
I have a freshly leveled 2 acres 15 minutes away from the smaller side of Moriarty so you're food and shopping needs aren't far away! Don't let that trick you though light pollution is low around these areas so stars on a clear night are a sight to behold. Also enjoy the local wildlife such as cows, horses, rabbits, and coyotes; careful with that last one. And the roads are somewhat ready for all vehicles with at least a good 16 inches of clearance from the ground as there is some brush and just rather big holes. Exact coordinates will be provided upon booking and I am available for whatever questions there may be. RVS and campers are welcome but there are no hookups and the roads leading up can be a bit bumpy nothing to major but it's worth noting.

RV camping near Santa Fe with campfires 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.
