Lovely park. Our site was a large pull through patio site that had a nice brick patio with BBQ, bench swing, picnic table, fire ring and night lights. Loved our site! We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful backdrop by the mountains. Conveniently located near the center of town. If you play guitar or other type of string instrument bring it along... they have a great music jam session every Friday beginning 4:30pm to 6:30pm. Incredibly friendly office staff.

Now this is the way a KOA should be! We had a deluxe patio site and it was everything and then some. Private, huge, easy to get into! Having a raised patio with a patio set and gas grill, as well as a stone patio with a chiminea! We enjoyed all of that a lot! The wifi was great, which is almost unheard of at any KOA. Although we didn't use the pool or restrooms, we did use the laundry. I like how they posted the prices as well as how long each took. I would def go back!

Very friendly & helpful staff. We had a problem with our water & they came right out to check on it. Problem was not with the park but us. The park is very clean & the pool is very, very nice. They have a nice playground for the kids. There is a dog park with mulch. Not much grass in the park but then again not much grass anywhere in the area. There is a laundry & coffee & tea is served mornings in the office & you are welcomed to read the newspaper while you are there. We stayed in a premium site, very nice but I would have preferred a site other then the one we were in. It was adjacent to the tent area. Wi Fi & Cable, too. Satellite friendly. Lots of Cacti all in bloom. They were just lovely. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Alamogordo, NM - April 2019 - Alamogordo/White Sands KOA - about $42.00/night for full hookups. This is a great KOA. The location is exceptional as it is right off of a main road close to restaurants, groceries, and activities. I didn't use any of the amenities, but I saw a pool (not open yet for the season) and the store inside the welcome center is well stocked. We enjoyed our full hookup site with the deluxe patio (E6) and would definitely stay again. You will go up about 4,000 feet in sixteen miles. Be sure to reserve your space at the KOA in advance!

The park is just minutes from White Sands National Monument and the International Space Hall of Fame. The Very Large Array isn't too far either. Do yourself a favor and take the thirty minute drive up to Cloudcroft and eat some Mad Jack's Barbecue.

We just stayed overnight but we were very pleased with this campground and would certainly stay again if in the area. We got a pull-through site but the utilities are at the very back of the site so we had to disconnect our tow so we could reach the sewer pipe. The host was very friendly. The site was level. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy check-in and friendly staff. They will loan you sleds to take to White Sands, which was great. There is an older section (most of the park) and a newer section. The older section has 9 50 amp sites, and the newer section has 7 sites and all are 50 amp. The new sites have lots of space and nice wooden dividers between sites - we would have requested one of these had we known. We were in the older section. Sites are close but not right on top of each other. There is a concrete table and small concrete divider with a small tree. We were on the end so only grass on the driver side. Our site was pretty level, and they all looked pretty level. The WII FI worked well or not at all. Directv worked fine. Cable TV was fuzzy but could be a bad connection on our part. Verizon had decent coverage. Sites and roads are gravel and dirt. Nice view of the mountains if you overlook the tops of RVs and fences :) Convenient location to White Sands and other areas to visit. Don't expect a peaceful night's sleep! The trains ... OMG the trains. They literally sound like they are coming thru the park. And there are a ton of them. There are also a lot of souped up cars driving around in the middle of the night and dogs barking from nearby neighborhoods. Most likely will not return due to the excessive noise. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Thanks for staying us. As for the other noises it is one of the pieces we can not control being in town. I agree, sometimes it does not like the trains are next door when the wind is just right.

Technically, there's nothing wrong with this park. The facilities and campsites are very clean and well maintained. The staff is outstanding. It's just a depressing park in a depressing town. The entire campground is gravel and the only landscaping are trees which are bare sticks in the winter. The surrounding neighborhood is dumpy. You hear train horns in the night and they are close and LOUD. Dogs bark all night in the nearby houses. For an overnight stay, it was tolerable. I'm sad to say all of this because the staff is absolutely wonderful and the park is very well maintained. I guess the saving grace is the low nightly rate. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

White Sands - amazing. Space Museum - poorly done, tired, old, run down. But despite all that, worth an hour or two. It's not that expensive. The Albertsons is one of the best we've ever been to.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't like our little town or the noises that comes with being in the city. Some of the other landscaping that you might have been looking for is just starting to get green again since we are just now coming out of winter.

Our first stay here. We stayed in one of the new deluxe sites in the rear. Very, very nice. The roads are gravel with concrete pads. We had a concrete block patio with a swing, fire pit, table and chairs, light and a propane grill. Unfortunately was too cold to sit outside and enjoy it. The laundry was very large with places to sit and lots of countertops to fold. Everyone super helpful. A staff member showed us to our site, took out propane tanks to fill and then came over and helped me fix something with the propane system. Another one helped me find a piece of wire to secure a bike. Other staff was driving around cleaning things. Another staff member loaned me a cordless drill to install a cabinet latch. They have made a real effort to improve this campground. The older sites have a table with a concrete block divider between sites. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice KOA, well maintained and super clean. Easy checkin with friendly staff. Gravel interior roads and sites, wide enough and level. Sites are separated by concrete walls for privacy (and maybe wind break?) and each include paved patio and nice picnic table. We had WSE and cable, all worked fine. Nice pool, great laundry. We use our own Verizon plan for WiFi (which worked great) so did not attempt to use campground WiFi. This was a good stop for us as we explored White Sands National Monument which we absolutely loved. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

According to the person who guided us to our site, our section was new. Out site was a very nice pull through FHU site with a privacy fence between sites and a glider swing as part of the patio. There was a train crossing, with whistle, somewhere near the campground that was noticeable during the night. Nice campground, but because of the train we probably would not stay in the future. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

We recently stayed at White Sands KOA in Alamogordo NM and really liked it. We were originally only staying one night but ended up staying for a few days more because it's so nice. There are pull-through FHU sites available for some sites and there is a dump station onsite. Our gravel site was very level and spacious. There is a little fence between sites. We had a table at our site. They have a laundromat, swimming pool and a playground. Their wifi worked well and our Verizon was also good. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.
