The staff was friendly and well-organized. Sites had easy access in and out, though was more uneven than I was expecting. Easy access to all hook-ups. I had noticed how close the park is to I-40 and was concerned about possible noise -- not an issue at all. Security on site all night. Well-designed dump station on way out with easily accessible water hoses. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

Note: This KOA camp has a deal with the Tucson KOA - bring in the coupon from the Tucson camp and get 20% off your camp fees at ABQ. Very clean and well maintained. My 50 amp bakelite cover was broken but functional - without mentioning it to the staff it was replaced during my stay. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Look carefully at Yelp and TripAdvisor - there are many, many things to see here. I could not do it all in 5 days. Two outstanding places - the Nuclear Science Museum, and the Very Large Array (two hours south). Self-spray $1.50 car wash just down the street. Nearby Albertson's grocery had very good fresh veggies and fresh meat sections. Airstream dealer within 1/2 mile. Central Avenue is a better way downtown than getting on the overcrowded highway.

Great park - just the right distance from the previous park making an easy stop on my cross-country run - Price is misleading as had a voucher for ONE night and paid for second. Easy off/on the interstate but close enough to hear some traffic noise (wasn't bad though). Well appointed park with lots of amenities. The right turn at the end of my row (to get to exit) was tight (greater than usual 90 degree) - but there was room for trailer wheels to roll over gravel. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy to access, only two turns off I40. Side roads are wide. Spacious reception area, has propane on site too. Sites are standard KOA, tight and close together. Our site was paved, just long enough for the RV and to angle park the tow car. The park is clean and well kept. Staff picked up garbage curbside before noon. The park closed the gate at 6pm and a guard opened it upon arrival. We never felt unsafe in the area. We used the RV repair place down the street from the entrance, fueled up at the station next to it and shopped locally. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

Lots to do here. Ski Sandia is 30 mins away, golf is 5 min. Could do both on the same day too. Quirky Madrid is a good stop if you take the back way to Santa Fe. If you haven't tried axe throwing, AbqAx was excellent. Dollar off pints at the craft brewer next to them with AbqAx wristband.

This KOA is Owned by KOA Corporate, I-40 Traffic Noise, Great Shopping Within 2 miles, Open, All Paved Roads - Very Expensive - Kinda of Tight in some areas. Had 5 bars of AT&T Data & good cellular. Good Dish Satellite & OTA Reception. Stayed here to visit the National Museum of Nuclear Science & Have my puppy groomed at PetSmart. New Mexico has some of the highest lodging taxes in the country at 13.9%. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

I will start with my complaint. Once your off the interstate there were no signs directing you the campground. There was a HUGE sign on the interstate for that exit but then NOTHING. Having to search for the campground driving a big rig and towing a car was not fun. It was your typical KOA. Sites very close together like sardines, little shade. The place was clean and well landscaped. Laundry was clean and priced reasonable. $2.25 wash $1.75 dry. Pool looked clean. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Some highway noise but it did not seem bothersome. I stopped for one night to dump, get water and do laundry before going to the Balloon Fiesta. The area did not seem safe at first because all the apartment complexs and housing developments had locked gates. The campground was gated and had a guard stationed at the gate. I felt very safe walking to the laundry late at night. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

Better than average KOA Park. Pleasant staff, guide you to site, very active during the day keeping things cleaned up. Our site was asphalt, but uneven. Most others were gravel. Spacing between units could be better, but was acceptable. Some freeway noise and actual location is not in o evif the better neighborhoods although we had no issues. Closed gate and security access after 7 pm. Not much shade and every pet area was rock - hardly any green around the area. We stayed in a "Deluxe" site and what that gives you is asphalt pad, concrete patio and lawn furniture. Not sure if I'd pay the price again for that vs regular site. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two months while my husband had surgery and rehabbed a torn rotator cuff and it was among the very best campgrounds we've stayed in. Helpful, friendly staff; asphalt pads mostly flat; fairly wide sites with picnic tables; lots of shopping nearby. WiFi mostly sucks depending on how close you are to the repeater. They have 4 dog parks that are kept clean, but only one of them has any sort of shade or a place to sit down. Also the pool could use some umbrellas, but we loved our stay here and we'll be back for a 3-month stay next Spring (we're full-timers, but based out of here). We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

Park site was nice, with a table and fire pit. Had room between the sites. Pretty quiet, even right next to the highway. Pets are welcome one large pet run, divided in two, but had to pass through one to get to the other -(not always good to mix dogs) East access from the highway. Everything was gravel. This is our 2nd time here. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Considering the convenient, urban, location of this campground, it is amazing. Sites are close, but pleasant enough and the grounds were well maintained and clean. A little pricey, but that seems to be the way things are going and considering the location, not too bad! We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is monthly as we stayed for 3 months recovering from knee surgery. This is a very well run KOA just off I40 that is gated and secure. They escort you to your site and pick up trash whenever you put it out. We had a shady, level, paved, pull thru that allowed enough room to park the truck as well as a small car. All utilities worked well and, when the trees leafed out, the staff trimmed them so the satellite dish would work-excellent service. The pool was sparkling clean and very refreshing when the temps got hot.The staff is very friendly. Propane and a dump are available on site. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Really short sites. The end of our RV was at the edge of the road. Easy off I40. We did not use hot tub and pool was still closed for the winter. They have a manned gate that closes at 7 pm. Fuel is just a few blocks away. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
