This is a nice little RV park. Not fancy, gravel pad, level site, fairly close together, more trees being planted, away from freeway noise, just off I-25 exit 191. Very friendly staff, the owner is upgrading, adding more sites and planting more trees. He happened to be working on a nearby new site and told us about several scenic drives in the area. Nice view of valley below. WiFi very fast first day (9 Mbps), next day hard to connect (provider issues?). Hook-ups appeared to be newer, we used 30 amp. Good OTA TV signal, 40+ channels. - Roaming Roads and Rivers

We enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly & helpful.
The shower was clean, plenty of hot water.
Try to get spot B4 or C4, you will have a beautiful view of the valley, Sandia & Manzano Mtns. - CandD

This is a quiet park that is close to the freeway but that gets little freeway noise. We checked in on a Sunday so the only way to get access to the Wi-Fi was to call the phone number, which we didn't do. They do offer discounts for travel club and veterans of $5. We had a great view from our spot in the park. The park is well kept very clean. It is also under construction so they're obviously trying to improve it even more. - beckydmc

Price reflects the monthly rate, electricity was charged separately. The park was perfect for us, we needed a place to stay for a few weeks while visiting Albuquerque. The park sits up on the hill just west of the freeway. There are great views of the surrounding mountains. There is surprisingly little noise despite proximity to the freeway. There were full hookups, good water pressure and strong wifi. This is a no-frills campground, but we were not in need of resort amenities. There are no laundry or bathroom facilities. This is a small park with 10 spots, most are long term, with a few spots set aside for shorter stays. This is essentially an open gravel lot so pulling in and out with a larger rig is easy. The owners were friendly and attentive. We were pleased with the park and would stay here again. - BluegrassTravelers

This small, clean RV park is fine for a stay while visiting the area. Road and sites are gravel, level, and everything worked well. You should be fully self-contained; no restrooms or showers. It is a quiet location, with easy on off the freeway access. - DiplomatTraveler

My husband is easily irritated at RV parks with poor and unclean facilities. He could not stop singing the praises of this tiny spot. The gravel was smooth and perfectly level. The place was quiet, friendly, and spotless. I swear he and the owner were best friends in ten minutes. The RV site is in a perfect place for easy in and out from the highway. Best for overnight as it is not set up for activities and is thirty miles from a big city, Alburquerque. - glowingheart

We had a level, gravel, pull through, FHU site that was satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi worked well enough for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. The bathrooms were clean while we were here. I did not see any recycling. - Jerry S

Not my first review of this park, I am here frequently. This is my second stay when it has rained - not good. Earlier in the year I was in with a friend and had to deliver him & his wife to their site, the entire park was flooded. I am in town on business & it's rained two days. I currently have 3-4 inches of water at my front door. I have to carry my dog to and from potty breaks. The park needs to spend some money on gravel for the dirt roads. I'll spend days getting the mud from the 5W & truck. The park needs to spend some money on gravel for the roads the roads. Maintenance has gone down hill, there are goat heads "stickers" every where. - Edd505

We like this park as it is close to my relatives in the South Valley of Albuquerque. We stay here quite often and I see improvement every time we stay. This time there were nice shades over the tables, decorative rock around the area; however, there is still no shade on the trailer! The trains, planes and automobiles will keep you awake though. - Marilynintexas

Beautiful small campground nested in the mountains. Limited campsites with electric, NO WATER at site, picnic tables are placed oddly - not convenient to site unless you pull in forward on sites. Beautiful walking trail loops marked with interesting sites. - DonBarbH

What an amazing place! Nice, easy and well marked hiking trails (though at 7,200' you'll need to pace yourself). I had the place to myself (other than camp hosts) for a few nights. The trees really make it feel very private even when you do have neighbors. Incredibly peaceful, will definitely be returning here! Downsides: It's very dusty. Back of rig and towed unit were solid red from dust on the road. You don't have great views from the campground because of trees. It's a long way from anywhere. An hour to get to Moriarity on I-40 or an hour and a half back to Socorro on I-25. The last 3-4 miles of the road in are not for the faint of heart if you're driving a big rig (see details) - The Old Fart

Really enjoyed this park and staff was really great! I got lost and when I called they were right there to assist.. The owner guided me into my spot as it was dark and made sure I was setup before he went back to the office. Their library was quite good and I exchanged some dvd's and books. Showers were clean and hot enough. The wifi worked well, download speed was 4000 Kbps and Upload was 1000 Kbps Byte Quota Unlimited. Campfires not permitted but Portable grills are accepted. Pets permitted on leashes and attended at all times. This park is well maintained, sites are level,long enough for tow vehicle & 34ft trailer. Wide enough to park my truck next to it as well. and long term residents very helpful. They are right off the highway on the west side. Highway traffic was not a noise issue. Nearest town is north about 15 mi and has supercenter walmart I will be returning here to stay on my way back to Colorado in the spring. Daily rate is $30.00-$35.00 Passport is good for 2 nites - Tj Hunter

I have stayed at this RV park before. I would stay here again. The sites are spacious, the utilities work as they should, and the place is easy to get to off the interstate. The folks checking us in were pleasant and they lead us to our site and stayed to insure that we got hooked up OK. The PA rate didn't apply in this case because of the balloon fest up in Alberquque. I will stay here again if in the area. - bones1941

This was my first time staying at this park. Check in was a breeze. The staff were knowledgeable and easy to work with. One of the staff escorted me to my site, showed me where all the hook-ups were, and asked if I needed anything else. The sites were level and wide, good amperage from the pedestal and the water had good pressure. There were no potholes in the roads. The entrance was easy on, easy off Hwy 25. I would stay here again. We camped here in a motorhome. - bones1941

Very friendly, helpful staff. Quiet park but some road noise due to being close to the I-40. Continental breakfast included and all day coffee and popcorn available. - Kiwijo

Decent place for an overnight stop, since it wasn't very expensive. Our site was uneven and needed a lot of leveling, and it's a bit small to fit in when towing a car. Lots of noise, we heard a back up beeper late into the evening and then some alarm that seemed to go on forever. Laundry room was dirty and one of the four machines didn't work. - jimandlisa

This is a large, well kept RV Resort just west of Albuquerque. We were there at the beginning of winter so the park was mostly empty. We camped in the new section (north-east side of the park) which has no grass, just gravel/rocks, but had long, level, pull-through sites. Although sites aren't exactly spacious, they have decent separation for a commercial RV Resort. There is a small dog park, but we mostly walked around the RV Park since it was big enough for us to get decently long walks. The web site boasts "Upgraded Free High Speed WiFi" but even though the park was mostly empty, we found the WiFi to be pretty slow. AT&T and Verizon worked well, so we used our hotspots instead. There's a pool, hot tub, and other amenities (which we didn't use). Overall the park is very nice compared to other options in the area, though you do end up paying more for that higher quality. We'd stay again. - LifeRebooted

Very easy. One call, no Credit Card needed. When we arrived all was exactly as booked.
Access/Big Rig Access:
Very easy right from I-40. Easy to get to the site, no sharp turns.
Very kind staff and no problems with our reservation even though they did not ask for our phone number or CC when booking.
Two sheds with bathrooms and laundry. Very clean. Propane cheaper than most other campgrounds we have visited.
Ok size, slightly close to our neighbor but ok for a couple of nights.
$31.21 after a AAA discount of 10%. Tax is added to price of campgrounds in New Mexico. Office accepts Master Card and VISA but not American Express.
If you use Apples products forget abut WiFi. Office said that the towers are not iPhone, iPad or MacBook friendly and that is true. Tries to restart my iPhone 4 times and after each restart it worked until the phone went to sleep. No luck with the MacBook at all. Seems that they had this problem for a long time but owner does not seem to care.
Almost unusable at this RV Park. Got 134kB down and hardly anything up so WiFi is what you have to rely on. Towers right outside the park is aparanetwly T-Mobile. I still see five bars on the iPhone but data and voice hardly usable.
Very nice even with another Class A moving in beside us.
$2.00 for washer and $1.50 for dryer. Room very small. Only one dryer was in working order. Very clean.
Walmart 9 minutes, Camping World 2 minutes, RV American Park is another RV-park just on the other side of the fence. - BasilFawlty

Our favorite place to stay in Albuquerque. Clean and quiet. Close to neighbors but sites wider than lots of other places. Price per night was double the usual because of the Balloon Fiesta. Flat sites with plenty of space. Convenient to I-40. - Hartleyfam

Just west of downtown with easy freeway access. Truck stop nearby, but it was quiet. Good staff and easy pull-through site. Excellent wifi. - Zephyrcon
Feb 2019 - $28.00
Staff were friendly and helpful. Park is quiet with simple landscaping and very clean. Easy to maneuver through the wide streets. Most sites are pullthroughs. Some sites are longer/wider than others. No grass on/between sites. Laundry room is spacious and reasonably priced. The vintage feel of this former trading post is pretty awesome, both inside and out. Lots of road noise from I-40. - a_elkins

I always like staying here, there’s always a space available; it’s quiet and clean and service is great. It’s outside of town which I think is a good thing. - Woody-wood

Nice, well maintained RV park. Wagon Master RV park is also an alpaca ranch. They feature daily feeding tours. Roads are gravel, with level gravel sites. There is a laundry room and a separate bath house. Sites are a combination of long pull thrus and back in. The utilities worked well, are convenient, and easy to hook up. There is plenty of room for awnings and slides with a small separating grass area. Each site has a picnic table. There is a small swimming pool, but no hot tub. There are no planned activities. Rated as Average. We recommend this RV Park and would stay there again. 30 minutes to Dallas/Fort Worth - Pacatrader

The staff was helpful and pleasant. The NEW owner even stopped by visit the first evening. He said that he is working hard to remodel and asked what we felt he should work on next.
I would certainly stay here again. It is near some shopping and things to see.
The best thing about this park is that it is QUIET. A couple of dogs were around us, but they did not misbehaved or become troublesome.
The first visual impression as you drive in could be better. The site was spacious. All the hookups worked and our personal internet and DirecTV reception were good.
The dog walk area needs improvement. - LMF

This park is very poorly maintained with many permanent residents living there. The pull thru sites are not level and my coach strained to get level. Stepping outside your coach you will encounter a field of thorns which will stick to your shoes until you return to your coach where they will transfer to your carpet. I made the mistake of passing through during balloon week, hence the outrageous $48.00 charge. Next time I will drive another hour and skip this place altogether. - Beaver 43

Save your money and go elsewhere. Checkin person was very helpful but the overall condition of the place is deplorable. - jc2
