Situated on the edge of the Santa Fe National Forest and nestled among the tall pine trees you will find one of New Mexico’s best kept secrets! Park your rig at the Pendaries RV Park. But, most importantly – if Christmas is your favorite season, you have to come experience Christmas in July at the Pendaries RV Resort!

Christmas in July

The Christmas in July celebration includes everything you’d find in the middle of December, including lights, decorations and, of course, a visit from Santa! Get in on the golf cart parade and then enjoy the huge holiday dinner and gift exchange.



This big celebration is a fun and exciting change of pace from the usual camping trip and something that the resort is well-known for. The celebration takes place throughout several days and extends even after the sun goes down. In fact, the park truly comes alive after sunset!

Christmas RV

People love to decorate their RVs with lights and other holiday décor, turning the entire park into a winter wonderland right in the middle of summer. It’s truly a sight you have to see for yourself!



Anytime you stay at Pendaries, you will feel as though you have your own little piece of the forest thanks to the care and thought given to the layout with wide distances between sites. The Pendaries (pronounced Pan-da-ray) has 50 beautiful sites to choose from that can accommodate double slide outs. Most sites have full hook up with 30 and 50 amp available and free WiFi. On site is a nice clubhouse, bathhouse, restrooms, laundry facilities and a Country Store which sells propane, ice and snacks, among other necessities.




This is a great place if you’re looking for peace and relaxation or if you’re looking to socialize and meet the neighbors, head over to the outdoor pavilion and maybe get a game of shuffleboard or horseshoes going. There are hiking trails, volleyball, basketball and all types of activities in the clubhouse all season.

Pendaries Golf Course

Speaking of golf carts, if you are a golfer, you must play The Pendaries Golf Course which is right across the street from the RV Resort. The 18 hole course is described as very challenging. Four sets of tees play 5,020 to 6,550 yards to challenge all skill levels. With a fully stocked Golf Shop, mountain view driving range and the Caddy Shack Snack Bar, it will be an unforgettable day on the greens.


Las Vegas, 40 minutes away, is the closest “big” city to Rociada and Mora is about 25 minutes. Santa Fe, Taos, Sipapu and Angel Fire are all easy drives for a day of shopping, hiking, visiting museums or specialty dining.
