The day we arrived…

…and the day we left – this park is at 7,000 ft., folks!

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This was a busy park with lots of short-term travelers coming and going
each day.  It was a “high-end” place, as would be expected for over $40
per day.  Service by the staff was excellent, and it really was a nice park.
There was no noise from major roads, but a dirt road next to the park
had occasional cars going by that raised a lot of dust.

Road and site access/type?
Gravel roads and sites (ie. dusty), large concrete patios at each site.
Most sites were pull-throughs, with some back-in’s around the
perimeter.  I should quit complaining about dust – everything in this
area is dusty!

Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
Sites were plenty long for large coaches with cars.  Spacing varied
quite a bit between OK to good.  Most sites were level, and it was
nice stepping out onto the spacious patio.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The full hookup, 50A power was strong, as was water pressure.  We
had a strong Verizon signal to our phones and hotspot.  The park
boasted 5G internet, the first we have seen, and it was blazing fast.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Not one, but two tables greeted us at our patio – a picnic table and
a 2-chair metal outdoor table.  Too bad is was too windy and cold to
enjoy either of them during our stay!  No fire pit, and we were advised
that charcoal grills could not be used without notifying the office.  It
was probably not allowed on the “fire alert” days we had while in the
area.

Facilities – bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
The bathrooms were gorgeous, and clean.  The showers were the
same, some with benches to hold goodies.  The laundry room consisted
of 5 washers and 10 dryers, plus a folding table and an ironing board
that came out of the wall.  Very nice!

Pet and/or kid friendly?
This was an “on-leash” park, and there was an area where they could
do their business – on leash.  Not really a kid friendly park, no pool or
equipment for them to play on.

Bike/walking trails nearby?
A .75-mile trail wound around the perimeter of the park, which
we did “laps” on when the weather permitted.  Better than nothing,
and it had decent views to be enjoyed as we walked. There was a bike
path just outside the park, but I didn’t get a chance to check its length
or condition.

Grocery stores and other services nearby?
Every service you could need is within a few miles of the park on NM14,
the main drag.  Of course, this is an upscale “artsy” city, so there were
also Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s close by, which we enjoyed visiting.

Comments:
This was our second time in Santa Fe, and we have always liked the
environment here.  Though we’re not arts and crafts people, it was
fun checking out various sculptures and art stores in town. Such a great
place to just walk around and shop.  MANY excellent restaurants here,
it was hard to pick which ones to visit.  Oh yeah, the park was nice – on
a small hill overlooking a large landscape.  Just wished it had more
trees and less sand when those spring winds came whipping through!
