“Picturesque, But Very High Elevation”

Reviewed May 09, 2019

Overall Rating

Gorgeous, free campground half hour outside Santa Fe. Lovely streams running nearby. Easily accessible in any vehicle.

It is about 10,000 feet in elevation. It got below freezing and snowed during the night in mid-May. Be prepared.

“didn’t realize this is mostly for tents”

Reviewed Apr 14, 2019

Overall Rating

We didn’t read reviews closely enough and didn’t know until we arrived that this is really only a tent camping site, there’s no way to drive up to a campsite. It’s a pull off area directly next to the main road with a small parking lot, bathrooms, and trash cans. We stopped the first week of April and the whole area was covered in sn... more

“Nice, but very busy”

Reviewed Oct 31, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a nice, clean campground with two creeks running through it and great hiking nearby. It is very busy, however, and right on the road. You can escape some of the road noise by using campsites further in, but you will have many day hikers passing by. It's quiet at night, though, before all the hikers and bikers show up. We did n... more

“Quiet camping with beautiful overlook!”

Reviewed Apr 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We spent one night here, camped right next to a steadily moving stream. There are 10 sites, five on each side, enough space between each site to have some privacy. There is one public bathroom directly in front of parking area, there are about 4 trash cans in the parking area. Take the time to drive up to the top of the mountain to see... more

“Uphere as much as i can- ”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2017

Overall Rating

About an hour up the road from downtown Santa Fe-perfect getaway and many other subiee parking spots just a ways up-- always see tents pitched and a couple lingering folks. dump stations, bathroom facilities. Favorite things about the area parking right off the road, access to two streams, forever a quick trek off the beaten path... more

“Gorgeous stream-side tent camping”

Reviewed Jun 09, 2017

Overall Rating

The Big Tesuque campground has 10 first-come-first-served tent sites, all within hearing distance of 2 beautiful mountain streams and all fairly level. The mountain views, cool temps, and the rushing stream were pretty idyllic. A few of the sites will accommodate a 6-person tent, but most sites are more suitable for up to 4-person tent... more
