Policies
Park Policy

Due to limited capacity and advance preparations required to create an off-grid experience of this nature, we require payment in full at the time of your booking to confirm and hold your reservation. Payments are non-refundable and KitFox has no obligation to issue refunds, however if you are unable to attend, we are happy to facilitate a transfer when possible. Please provide as much notice as possible in the event you are requesting a bookings modification.

Rules & Regulations

Grounds: KitFox is located on 160 acres in the Galisteo Basin Preserve, a conservation-based community development located 14 miles south of Santa Fe, New Mexico. To ensure the grounds remain in their natural state, KitFox guests are required to abide by standard outdoorsman ethics resulting in minimal impact to the land and showing respect to the community. By doing our part, we all ensure that this special place is both enjoyable today and continues to exist for generations to come.

Terrain: The Galisteo Basin Preserve is filled with plants that are native to New Mexico’s high desert terrain, including many different variations of cacti and shrubs. While there are designated pathways to/from the glamp sites, we recommend wearing protective close-toed shoes or boots and long pants for extra protection.

Climate: Santa Fe is the highest state capital in the United States, located at 7,199 feet above sea level. Due to the high elevation and dry climate, the sun can be extremely strong during the afternoon hours and evening temperatures may fall drastically, even on warmer days.*

We recommend packing a long-sleeved top, wide brimmed hat, and sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun and packing warmer clothes (and extra blankets or sleeping bag if you wish) for the evening and early morning. Although the weather is most often pleasant, high winds, lighting storms, monsoons, and other extreme weather is possible.

*Given the off-grid nature of the facilities, air conditioners and heaters are not currently available.

Wildlife: The Galisteo Basin Preserve is home to incredible desert wildlife, including a variety of birds, lizards, coyotes, rattlesnakes, centipedes, spiders, and other potentially harmful creatures. For the safety of you and your guests, we ask that you be sure to wear appropriate clothing and footwear, stay on the designated trails, and fully zip up your tent (to prevent critters from making their way inside). And most of all, be prepared by educating yourself about desert survival skills and staying aware of your surroundings.

Curious what we’ve seen the most and least frequently on site? Coyotes and a variety of birds are a part of daily life at KitFox, whereas rattle snakes and tarantulas on the other hand have been seen about once per year.

Pets: If you would like to bring your dog to KitFox, please book one of our pet-friendly tents*, which will include accommodations for you and your pet. We allow a maximum of one dog per tent and ask that all pets remain on a leash when on the grounds. From cactus prickers and heat, to insects and coyotes, it is worth noting that a desert environment can be harsh on even the most resilient of pets.

*First select one of our pet-friendly tent units AND then select the “pet package” add-on option.

Amenities: Glamping tents are outfitted with beds to accommodate two guests, with the option to add a third guest* to any of our queen units. Your tent will be filled with essential amenities such as cozy bedding, seating options, a lantern, water dispenser, and cooler.

Enjoy complimentary indoor and outdoor games, campfires, star gazing, and a large communal lounge tent with children’s play area, lounge seating, and the KitFox general store.

*First select a standard queen unit AND then select the “cot package” add-on option.

Facilities: Similar to most camping experiences, KitFox is off-grid with limited to no cell phone service* and wifi. KitFox provides LED lanterns, solar lights, and USB charging packs (for both Apple and Android phones) for guests during their stay. We encourage guests to bring headlamps and flashlights if desired.

Off-grid bathroom facilities consist of two self-contained out houses and a hand-washing sink. Oversize shower wipes and makeup remover wipes provided in each tent.

*In our experience, Verizon is the most consistent and available cell provider in the area. Service by most carriers can be found a short 5-10 minute drive into the El Dorado area.

Access: The road and parking lot is suitable for 2-wheel drive vehicles and shuttle vans. The parking lot has one (1) ADA-compliant parking spot and aisle. It is important to note that outside of the parking lot, the environment is primarily in its natural wild state and most areas are not conducive to wheelchair access. If you have special access needs, our staff is happy to discuss the site and will provide assistance to accommodate your needs whenever possible. Motorized vehicles are not permitted outside of the parking lot area with the exception of motorized personal mobility vehicles for use on existing pathways.

Parking: To keep our impact on the land to a minimal, our parking lot is limited to one parking spot per lodging unit reservation.

Visitors: Due to limited parking (and current social distancing practices), KitFox facilities are reserved for our registered guests. We ask that if any non-registered guests wish to explore the Galisteo Basin Preserve, that you meet them at one of the nearby TRAILHEAD OPTIONS.

Provisions: We encourage you to bring as many snacks, food, and beverages as you like for your stay. We kindly ask that you refrain from glass containers/packaging, and properly discard any waste in accordance with standard wilderness ethics. We offer a personal cooler with ice* to store any food or drink items you may wish to bring on site. 

*Select the “cooler with ice” add-on during the check-out process. The queen and double twin units offer a 20 quart cooler option while the king unit offers a 54 quart cooler.

Dining: Certain events and package options include dining experiences provided by Dig & Serve or other local restaurant partners. Review your booking confirmation to see what is included in your stay at KitFox or explore our EVENTS PAGE to select an upcoming package. For other meal options to enjoy while exploring New Mexico, we have provided a great list of recommended LOCAL DINING EXPERIENCES.

check-in

When you arrive, please check in with the camp host to receive your tent number and padlock with key. Check-in time is typically at 3pm*. If you need to arrive later into the evening, please contact us so we can make special arrangements for you. Upon arrival, all guests must individually sign a Release form, and a parent or guardian must sign for any minors on premise.

*Please check your confirmation email for the exact check-in time associated with your reservation package.

Check-out: Please check out with the camp host before leaving KitFox. Check-out time is typically at 10am*. Return your padlock and key upon checkout to avoid a re-keying fee. Upon inspection by staff, any incidental charges, damages, or missing items will be charged to the card on file.

*Please check your confirmation email for the exact check-out time associated with your reservation package.

Noise: Quiet hours at the Galisteo Basin Preserve are 10:00 PM* until sunrise. We ask that you please be respectful of other guests and the surrounding neighbors in accordance with KitFox LLC’s Code of Conduct.

*Guests often enjoy their glamping experience long into the evening hours, which is encouraged as the night skies and fireside activities are wonderful. Past the 10PM hour, we only ask that you respect others who may want to turn in early and be considerate of your volume level.

Valuables: We recommend zipping up doors and flaps any time you leave your tent unattended to keep the space clean and free of bugs, reptiles, and snakes. We will also provide you with a padlock to lock your tent when leaving it unattended for extended periods of time. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen property or weather related damages so please take any items of value with you when leaving an area.

Airports: For booking regional flights, the Santa Fe Regional Airport is only 26 miles from KitFox and has limited options for travel. If you are planning a trip and looking for more travel options, the Albuquerque International Sunport is 75 miles away and offers a wider variety of flight options throughout the U.S. and beyond.
