“Campground open seasonally ”

Reviewed Jan 05, 2018

Overall Rating

Husband and I drove up here hoping to spend the night first week of January. The campground looked really great, but unfortunately was closed for the season. It was nice enough from the outside that I’d come back when open.

“Peaceful getaway in a convenient location.”

Reviewed Nov 12, 2017

Overall Rating

We wanted a convenient location on our way through New Mexico. Cochiti Lakes fit the bill. It was about thirty minutes from Santa Fe and an hour to Albuquerque. We arrived without reservations in early November on a Thursday. We were surprised that the park was as crowded as it was. We found an excellent spot that overlooked the la... more

“Perfect hideaway in between Santa Fe & Albuquerque ”

Reviewed Nov 02, 2017

Overall Rating

It was a nice place to recoup from a long drive and also to unwind from the sightseeing trips in town. Santa Fe & Albuquerque are on either side of this place. 30 minuets to town. A little reservation owned convenience store with gas and laundry mat is right behind the park. Dog friendly and lots of walking trails all around and the vi... more

“Quiet”

Reviewed Oct 26, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed 4 nights in Cochiti lake in the Buffalo Grove loop site #57. The campground is very clean and well kept. The campground is conveniently located, 40 minutes, between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The Campground sits high above the Cochiti Reservoir on a Indian Reservation. There is not much around the campground per say. The c... more

“Great Value and clean location”

Reviewed Aug 25, 2017

Overall Rating

I was very surprised to find such a nice campground with 50A service for such a reasonable price. Our reservations were last minute and as a result we had to stay in the older Juniper Loop as opposed to the newer Buffalo loop. I highly recommend that you try to get into Buffalo as it has water at each site vs spread out and in our case... more

Reviewed Mar 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Stayed here for 1 night and had the Elk Run dry campground nearly to ourselves. There were 2 other campers but we spread ourselves out to maximize our view of nearby Cochiti Lake. On the other hand, the electric/water sites in the neighboring loop looked pretty full. With the Federal discount pass, dry camping is only $6/night ($12 ... more

“Beautiful campground, beautiful view”

Reviewed Nov 04, 2016

The campground was clean with excellent facilities including a covered picnic table. Views of Cochiti Lake are wonderful. It was only 5 miles to Tent Rocks National Monument -- the canyon trail hike there is one of the best we have ever taken. We were boondocking and using our Federal America the Beautiful Senior Pass, so the price... more

“Best campsite ever!”

Reviewed May 02, 2016

Overall Rating

We have been traveling fulltime with our kids for about 15 months now, and this is definitely the most beautiful campsite we have ever had. The views from our site were spectacular! It's about a 30 minute drive to Santa Fe and 60 minutes to Albuquerque which was a little inconvenient, but it was worth it to stay in such a beautiful p... more

“Pretty gross and no playground”

Reviewed Apr 21, 2016

Overall Rating

The bathrooms here are disgusting. The views and scenery are lovely. The closest grocery store is 30 minutes away. Very disorganized and I don't suggest this place to small children. Pros are I have cell service and there's some good hikes and sites close by.

An absolutely stunning paradise easily accessible from Santa Fe or Albuquerque - we sought refuge here after the Balloon Fiesta. There are 4 loops open to camping - two with water/electric and two are dry camping.
