WiFi failed. We have stayed at this park multiple times over the last decade and the WiFi experience has been the worst of any park we’ve stayed at that’s claimed to have WiFi. - Bill F

This is a typical KOA. Very clean, but sites very close together. It was like a parking lot. Our picnic table was right next to the neighbors sewer connection. Pool was nice, only reason I stay at a KOA is for my kids because usually there are lots of kids. It so much at this KOA. We were scheduled to stay 2 night last but only stayed one. Passing through for one night I would stay again, but other than that, I will not return to this KOA. - 5Dudes

We were shown to our site and even helped make sure I was lined up correctly. We only stayed one night but we would go back if in the area. - FuzzHW

We needed a place to overnight with electricity for the AC. Also looking for something not to far from the Interstate. This seemed like a good place, had decent reviews, so we stopped in. Glad we did. Nice, clean, helpful. Spacious sites, nice picnic tables and armadas over them. Even have grills. All the sites are pull-through, so we did not have to unhook the toad. There is minimal shade. Most sites have a tree, it is all about getting in its shade:). The interior roads, sites and pads are gravel and rock. The wi-fi was top notch, the Verizon coverage was good. And you can not beat the price in the heat of the summer. There is a train crossing near-by and you can hear the commuter trains some, but it seems to end in the evening. Turned out to be just what we were looking for as an overnight stay with hook-ups. - Magnum34

The staff is very friendly as were all my weekend neighbors. Very nice property for it's value, close to casino with shuttle service practically at the snap of a finger, Rail Runner station right outside entrance. I can see myself staying here often as it is close enough to home so as not to go broke on fuel yet far enough to "be away". All hookups worked perfectly, plenty of free TV stations, cable hookups but I didn't have any coax. For those with "young-uns", there is a playground area along one of the lakes. Honestly....can't wait to go back. - Ed P3

The park is in the southern outskirts of Albuquerque, a short drive from the park. Our site was dirt/gravel and level. Satellite TV was no problem. Price was $35 a night with the third night free. There are two small lakes said to have trout and catfish. An Indian fishing license is required. A full-scale casino is nearby with shuttle service to your site. Individual picnic tables were on covered concrete slabs with grills nearby. - Mtmoi

There are 16 sites in the main loop of this campground. About half are
first-come, but of those only 3 have electric and one of those is an ADA
(handicapped parking) site. Many of the main loop sites have shelters, fire
rings and grills but there's no water or sewer at any site. You can get
water at the dump station just past the visitor center. There are flush
toilets at the visitor center and vault toilets in each loop. Past the main
loop you can get through a tight opening to the overflow loop with 7 more
sites that are all first-come parking. None of these have water or electric
(or are even very level) but they have fire rings and some have tables. In
between the 2 loops is a group site without electric that has many parking
sites associated with it. All of these are reservation only. This is
sometimes used for Ranger talks. There are beautiful trails around the park
but pace yourself unless you are used to the 7200' elevation.
We bought the NM Annual Camping Pass ($225) for NM State Parks. It's a
great deal. If you camp in a site with electricity it costs $4 a night and
you pay nothing for sites without electric. Without the pass it would be
$14 or $10 a night. The camp hosts here are really terrific. The grounds
are well maintained, each site was raked and the bathrooms are immaculate.
The sites feel very private with trees providing a beautiful screening. The
downside is that you're far from shopping so bring everything you'll need
with you. The last 1/4-mile of road into the park is a very steep dirt
road, but nothing to worry about unless it's pouring rain. This is not a
Big Rig campground and if you're over 32ft I would look to make a
reservation (on ReserveAmerica) so you can check the site length. - krawz

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

We've been coming here every few years for 18 years or so and the same manager has been here all this time. We have 4 words for her - "It's time to retire." I'll refrain from specifics. That said, this place has almost tripled in size since our first years. They now seem to use a 30 day max stay and it is pretty full. There is a younger maintenance fellow taking care of some things. The older section is the most pleasant looking and the newer section has the most spacious sites. Wind seems more an issue in the new section. Watch your awning. Half the rigs have doors facing west, too. Ugh. No WiFi anymore but laundry room has been upgraded. All gates have changed in configuration from a few years ago. We used to use Eubanks gate nearby, but all gates have been narrowed and it is tight. Truman is the best bet now- it is a bit wider and has fewer obstacles. Check for open and close times. Those have changed greatly too. This is a busy base which is good to see. Commissary and BX area are good. There are Rec activities everyone can participate in. The golf course needs more TLC but is okay. It's restaurant is a busy place for breakfast and lunch, too. A great attraction is the Nuclear Energy Museum north several blocks on Eubanks. Very interesting. - exceltraveler

Stayed in the graveled area. Strong winds for two of the 8 days we were there. Rained for several days as well. Close to gas station and commissary/PX complexes. Eubank gate open 24/7 while other gates are not. Get in early in the day if possible, especially on Friday/Saturday/Sunday nights. Sites fill up. During Balloon Fiesta (October) plan on being on a waiting list - no reservations are taken. - skypilot

Typical of Air Force FamCamps, overall in need of maintenance on just about everything, overall good FamCamp but not great. If you have an RV over 30 feet you will need to use the Truman Gate (24/7) located on the north side of the the base, off of Gibson Blvd. Smaller RVs can use the Eubank Gate (24/7) located on the east side of the base just off of Eubank Blvd. The newer section has large wide sites using common FHUs between the sites. There's absolutely no shade in the newer section. Signage here is horrible. I had to park in the area just south of the newer sites and walk around to find the office. The office is closed on weekends. There are instructions at the office for after hours check in. When arriving after hours you can park in any open site that does not have a cone in it. Then fill out the reservation provided at the office, place it in the dropbox, then mark an 'X' on your site on the campground map. You can pay by check or credit card. If paying by credit card go to the office and provide your credit card info. As others have stated if you drive your RV into the last road on the west of the FamCamp you will need to disconnect to turn around if no sites are available. In the older area most of the sites are not really big rig friendly. Dense trees offer good shade but can be a problem with large RVs and slides. Sites 25 through 33 in the older section are big rig friendly. Those sites off some shade and green grass. If you want grass and shade those are the best for big rigs. Sites 25 through 33 share a common power pedestal. Which means on some sites you will need to run you power cord under your RV to the power pedestal to the right of your RV. Be prepared and bring an good extension cord. In sites 25 through 33 every other site has a concrete pad. There is WiFi but almost useless with .71Mbps download, 3.07Mbps upload. Verizon Data 34Mbps download, 16.8Mbps upload. AT&T data 6.90Mbps download, 15.1Mbps upload. Verizon cell service was good. - ETB

We were stranded @ the Loves truck stop with a wheel bearing issue on the trailer. The manager came in on a Sunday, and also met us to guide us through the road construction in front of the park, being completed as I type. The owner also came to our site and talked to us to make sure everything was ok. This small park is under construction improvements but it is easy to see what their vision is. Roads may be tough to navigate with a longer vehicle. We had great cell signal. It is up on a hill so the views from this park are really scenic but for the most part you need to walk to get the buildings out of the way. All of the utilities functioned properly. Far enough away from I 25 that noise was not an issue. - Ghettomedic

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

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

This is a great place for overnite or much longer. The grounds are clean and well kept. - Xpeditions

We stayed at El Rancho RV & Mobile Home Park for 4 nights while we were in Albuquerque visiting friends & family. NOTE--the entrance is on Zuni.
We had a nice site with water, sewer & 30 amp power & we did not have a problem getting our 27' trailer backed in. The park itself was quiet, clean & the residents were cordial. Wyoming is a main street that had a lot of traffic on Friday & Saturday nights but was otherwise fine.
We found the location to be very convenient for restaurants, the downtown RailRunner station & a nearby dog park that was really nice. We felt that we received good value and convenience & will return to El Rancho on our next visit to Albuquerque. - dawnbmoore

We picked this park due to its location close to town and the mountains. The neighborhood isn't the best; we knew that going in, but were disappointed when the manager suggested that we not walk our dogs in the neighborhood. He reassured us that the park was safe with one entrance/exit that is monitored. As a prior military guy who lives on site with his wife and family, I believed him. We felt very safe, and after investigating moving, we decided that the dogs could sacrifice their usual long morning walks since this place was so convenient and the price was reasonable. The manager was super nice. He asked us to call when we were close so that he could greet us and guide us right to our spot. He gave us recommendations for restaurants, laundry and sights based on our interest. He gave us a business card so that we could call him if we needed advice. The park was very quiet and other residents were friendly. We walked our dogs around the park in the mornings and several residents came out to say hi...to our dogs and one even gave them treats. Note: the address is Wyoming, but the entrance is on Zuni! There are no laundry, bathrooms or showers on site. I would recommend this place and if ever back in ABQ would stay here again. - MichelleKry
