Cochiti Lake Campground

We have been to the Cochiti Lake COE Campground several times and in many ways we really like it. Since it is a Corps of Engineers campground, we get to use our federal senior pass and the cost is only $10 a night for a 50-amp electric site. Our section site did not have a water or sewer hookup. The park gives easy access to Santa Fe and the sites are large.

One downside is the really narrow asphalt parking pad. We did have a pull-through site, but look at how close our front steps are to the edge of the pavement. We had to be careful going in and out of the door.

The site is large and has a concrete picnic table--down 7 steps from the RV. We didn't use that area. I only used the loop restroom once, but enjoyed the mural inside.

This is a view of the lake. We saw a few fishing boats on the water and saw a couple of pontoon boats moving that direction. One marina has quite a few sailboats. We only saw one out on the water.

This was one amenity we really enjoyed. Our Verizon broadband card had an excellent signal.

I found some poppies in the campground. We have seen them in Arizona and California but I didn't know they grew in northern central New Mexico.

I am sure we will stay in Cochiti Lake Campground again in our travels between Colorado and Arizona.
