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 maker, cooking and eating utensils and a dining area. Also available is the bathhouse 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."

Be aware that the roads can be snowy or muddy in early spring, late fall and winter, and rutted due to rains in the summer. At those times of the year we recommend a car with front-wheel, all track or four-wheel drive and good traction tires.

Great layout and larger than I thought. Nice location and it worked well for me. They are still working on the bath house and a sink would have been nice. I'm sure they will have that installed for 2022.
Friendly folks, great amenities (especially outdoor kitchen and hot showers) and quiet, lovely site. Hiking trail is beautiful and easy. Appreciate all the efforts to upgrade the facilities!
Comfortable sleep near shaggy peak
Caring People. Open land. Clean shared areas. If you make it to the Santa Fe area, this is the place to stay.
Ask about Saturday events at the campsite and Sunday yoga nearby.
We loved the space! It was so secluded and private, they even have some trails marked so you can hike as you wish. It was absolutely freezing up there so we didn’t get to hike as much as we would have liked but what we did, we loved. Will definitely be coming back in the warmer months.
