Positives: This RV Park is located on a hilltop setting on the south edge of Santa Fe and close to Hwy 14 and Interstate 25. This is a busy park with lots of rigs pulling in and out each day, but still has a quiet atmosphere with a good visibility of the New Mexican countryside. The Office area is generally central to the park and has co-located toilets, showers, laundry, and club house. All are in very good condition. Many lots are pull thru and most have a nice patio area. A number of sites also have trees. Sunsets were often lovely from the Park’s hilltop location. The office has a weekly newsletter which is informative on happenings in the Santa Fe area.

Negatives: This RV Park is expensive, ‘in the writer’s opinion’. One month from early Sept to early Oct, during the start of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, was over $700, though this did include electricity. Further south in New Mexico you one RV Park provides indoor swimming pool, hot tub, private shower rooms, pickleball, and a number of social functions, etc. for under $300, so I assume the Santa Fe location is everything. The wireless Internet service at Santa Fe Skies was terrible. My wife and I spent a lot of time each day re-entering passwords and waiting for the wireless connection to reestablish only to get disconnected again and again, always falling back to 3G which used up our phones’ Internet download monthly limit. Staff understood and offered a wireless booster, which made only a 5-10% improvement occasionally. The wireless broadcast antenna for our area of the Park was connected to a site’s electric box and got turned off often as rigs were puled in and out of this site. Once this information was divulged, I went over and put duct tape over the wireless antenna's breaker to stop this from continuing. The only reliable wireless was at the Office block. The whole experience was very frustrating and very disappointing. They said they could make improvements in the wireless signal in our area of the park, but don't know if or when this will be followed through. The Club House was seldom used and the event newsletter often didn’t list the few events that did go on.

Conclusion – would we good back? No – due to the high price, lack of facilities, and poor wireless service.

Santa Fe Skies is a very nice RV Park. Excellent washroom and laundry facilities. We stayed for a week while exploring the Santa Fe area. Two items of note that could be improved. You are expected to find your site on your own. Some of the back-in sites are tricky and could use the help of a camp host to guide the bigger rigs. The WIFI services are very inconsistent, even at the office.

I'd definitely stay at Santa Fe Skies RV Park again. Mgmt staff is courteous, friendly, and helpful. Site had good 50 amp 120V power, good WIFI signal, but no cable tv. Bathhouse and showers were immaculate with beautiful 18" terra cotta tile throughout; very nice and spacious. RV park is convenient to shopping and restaurants, but quite a ways from the San Miguel Church, Loretto Chapel, and The Plaza. Extensive road construction and traffic delays occur from the 3600 block of Cerritos Road north for about a mile. From the RV Park, the quickest route to get to The Plaza is the by-pass NM Hwy 599 to St Francis St, then, follow the signs to downtown and The Plaza.

Interesting reviews, some great some not, so here's my take. Spent 3 nights here. Is it pricey, hmmm, maybe depends on your pocket book, but I would rather pay a little extra so as not to be crammed in with other RVs and worry about low-lifes stealing my stuff. The sites are spacious in my opinion. So, it seems to me that the site you stay in has a lot to do with how well you like it here. We stayed in the pull thru section site M4 and we loved it. Is there a dead animal smell? Well I didn't smell anything but my wife did mention something like that, I thought it must be the next door neighbor's sewer line. Restrooms and showers are clean. There are many more showers than I've seen at other parks. Ah but the WiFi, yes I agree it's very bad. That is one improvement they could certainly make. In this day and age when equipment is so cheap, not sure why they have not improved it. The park is on a ridge, pro: nice sunsets, con: windy. Is it always windy here? Don't know but it was windy in Winslow, Gallup and here, something about this part of the country in July? The park is about 20-30 minutes from the downtown area where all the artsy fartsy stuff is. Is that a con? Not for me, but some might find it inconvenient. Would I stay here again? Yes definitely.

We stayed at this RV park 09/20 thru 10/3 due to a tow vehicle breakdown and were very comfortable (felt "safe") the entire time. The owners exhibited a lot of pride in their business and it showed in their friendliness to customers and their pride in the facilities. It was well maintained and very clean at all times and any time we had a question, they were super helpful. It is a very good destination RV park to be used s a "hub" for activities and a comforting place for an overnight stay while "movin' on".

Easy access and spotless restrooms with (can you believe it) great wall paintings in the mens' side. They try oh, so hard and it is a welcome place to view the Santa Fe sunsets. This is a great stopover place and out of the hustle of the city.

Great spot, thought fairly expensive for not being that close to town:
Full hook ups. Back in spot saved us $2/night. Around $44 w/ Goodsam.
Gravel sites, level. Clean facilities.. 5 laundry machines (2 were broken at the time). Propane filling on site.
Easy making a reservation by phone. No deposit required. Was pretty full even late in the season.
They have a ton of solar panels and offset about 50% of their energy.
Not great wifi, but usable.

A fine park; but not a luxury RV resort. Nice sites with a nice view. Not right in town, but convenient enough for easy access with a tow vehicle. Be advised we had 2 mountain bikes stolen from our site. They were locked to our RV with 3 steel cable OnGuard locks. The cables were cut with very strong (clearly planned and plotted) cable cutters. Our neighbor also had their bike stolen off the rack from their pickup. This happened in the middle of the night while I was asleep inside our RV. The police indicated that it is, in fact, unusual to have problems in this park, but it happened to us. The management was clearly and appropriately disturbed by the incident; though they took no particular action. There are no security cameras or gate to keep non-guests out of the park. There is a lot of traffic in and out of this park during the day and early evening. This definitely impacted our overall rating and particularly our 'appeal' rating. Unfortunately, we will not be back.

Of all the RV parks we have stayed in across the country, this is our favorite. The sunsets alone are reason enough, but there is also so much more! The place is immaculate, and there are sculptures all over the property--very much in line with the feel of Santa Fe. The place is run by a family who are all really helpful and knowledgeable about the park and the surrounding areas. We enjoyed a concert on the patio one evening by a duo who were staying at the park--a perfect way to end a day.

Very friendly park. Check-in process was very good. Best park I know of in Santa Fe. Location is just off I25 and close to the Railrunner (if you want to use this to go into town or to Albuquerque). Good wifi, clean, walking trails all around the park for you and your pets. Lots of cute rabbits in the park, too. Would love to have more grassy areas, but that is probably not available in Santa Fe.

My family of four met my father and his wife at this park and spent a week as a family vacation, he in his class A and us in our travel trailer. I grew up in Albuquerque, and like to go back when I can to visit, but there are not many nice stays in ABQ. Santa Fe Skies is in a beautiful spot. The management and staff were really nice. We made good use of the courtyard, the grills, one of the owners spent an evening having a beer with us and chatting. The views of the Sangre's and the Jemez from our campsite were awesome. The Sandia's were visible to the south in several spots. Stunning sunsets, decent wifi (for a park) and full hookups. We will be back over and over.

This RV park was a huge disappointment. Sights are not level, the park has zero curve appeal and the sights are narrow. We has to request a different sight as we could not get our slides out without hitting a pole or the neighbors. Also, the place smelled like a dead animal. We booked three nights and left after one. I fail to understand why people like this RV park.

What a fantastic place to stay! The owner, her son and staff were terrific. The setting is amazing. The sites are clean, the bathrooms are immaculate, no joke. Great place to stay and sunset pictures are easy to get.

We like to stay here as we travel to Santa Fe for family and going from our summer home to our winter home. Sites are large, long and level. Office personnel are great to all. Would not stay at any other park in the area.
