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 foxes, and more.
The land is bordered by the Santa Fe National Forest with scenic views of Shaggy Peak, the last named peak of the Rocky Mountains and the beginning of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range. There are several trails ranging from a casual 20 minute hike or a 4-5 hour round-trip vigorous adventure up to Shaggy Peak.
The Santa Fe Treehouse Camp is perfect for tent camping. The amenities included with your reservation are all-hours access to the outdoor kitchen (with a community fridge, stove, and grill), bath house (with flush toilets, sinks, and showers), and a hot tub (age 18+ or with adult supervision).
Additionally, there a several rustic treehouse structures on the property as part of the legacy of this 30+ year old summer camp. Please, message us through Hip Camp for tree house availability and upgrade fees.
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.
This naturally beautiful place is only a 25-30 drive from downtown Santa Fe. We look forward to sharing with you this unique, magical place in the “Land of Enchantment."

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This property was wonderful! It was far enough away from town that it was quiet and the night sky was breathtaking with the clarity of the stars and milky way. But it was close enough that within 20 minutes, you can be in Santa Fe. Bansi was incredibly kind and showed us around the site and recommended some things for us to do in town (which was awesome). The camp sites are all well taken care of and very clean. I would highly recommend this property and would stay here again.
I loved everything about this place. Its nice to relax and grt away from all the noise. Nights are lovely and days are full of wildlife and hikes. I loved that i could bring my canine friend! There is a communal kitchen, you use you clean. Bathrooms, with showers. A hot tub to relax and look out at the stars! I can't wait to visit again. It was completely comfortable and out in the middle of a Forrest. I can't compliment this place enough. It was wonderful
As a tent camper this was perfect! Tent in the wilderness, but with the luxuries of a kitchen, fridge , hot showers, flush toilets, and a HOT TUB! These are now very welcome amenities in my camping life. Only problem was finding it, I stopped for directions from local police, who came checking behind me ti see that I didn't get lost. That alone made me feel safe, that the police have the time to help lost visitors!
This was such a beautiful place to camp! Bansi was very helpful in getting us oriented with the features of the Tree House Camp. There were beautiful mountain views, stunning stars, and bathroom facilities a short walk from our site. We would absolutely go back! The hot tub was definitely an added bonus too...
Absolutely beautiful place in the forests of the Sangre De Cristo mountains. Hosts were super nice. We upgraded to a tree house, a pretty minimal structure but saved us from spending time setting up a tent so well worth it. The tree houses have open air windows so you still have the outdoor feel which was great. The icing on the cake is the hot tub which makes the perfect closer to a day of adventuring. Next time I would bring groceries to utilize the awesome open air community kitchen.
Camp was just as described (no cell phone service but we were warned of this in advance by the hosts so we were prepared). We were greeted enthusiastically and got the lay of the camp. Site was secluded and beautiful, everything we needed for a relaxing stay. We even asked for a last minute upgrade from a tent site to a tree house due to weather concerns and were accommodated with no issues.
Beautiful surroundings at the Santa Fe forest and the price is such a bargain! My only hope is that the campsite’s treehouse beds and kitchen area will be cleaned up a little bit!
Treehouse Camp was so nice, my two dogs and I stayed there twice during our 5-week trip from California to Kansas and back! It's completely charming, with beautiful private sites to set up a tent, or various "treehouse" cabins in different degrees of proximity to the shared bathroom and open kitchen facilities. Even during some transitions as the camp evolves, all was well maintained, organized, and wonderfully welcoming. Work campers Kyle and G. who managed the day-to-day are hard-working fabulous people, incredible cooks, and absolutely awesome to spend time with. I can't wait to go back!
