Ghost Ranch is spectacular. The wide open vistas, the towering buttes, it has it all. The accommodations are spartan. The cafeteria style dining might not be everyone's idea of fine dining, but $13 for an all you can eat pot roast dinner was really amazing....More

Amazing views, great hikes, two small but fascinating museums: paleontology and anthropology, horseback riding, and a wonderful bus tour of Georgia O'Keeffe's landscapes- the tour guide was superb! We stayed for two nights, definitely would love to have stayed longer.More

Ghost Ranch is chock full of beautiful scenery, great hiking, interesting paleontology and archeology, and artistry. You MUST go! We took the paleontology tour which was a short hike back to a primo dinosaur quarry! That event requires reservations but the rest of it doesn't.More

Ghost Ranch is one of New Mexico's prettiest areas. My horseback tour of the ranch was idyllic and well worth the drive from Santa Fe. The climb up to Chimney Rock is also great. My only complaint is that I didn't spend another day there!

I stayed in a room so I don't have first hand knowledge of the RV area. I believe it is though as I recall seeing a few pets there.
