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

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 have stayed here at least 5 times in our 29' Class C since Oct of 2016 and each time the facilities seem worse. We stayed in the older section of the park and the showers were dirty and didn't work correctly (hot water can't be adjusted or turned on). The shower laundry facility needs to be renovated or a new one completely rebuilt. This Famcamp gets a lot of usage especially during the balloonfest. The free wifi works well enough some of the time. - dfcordero

Park was great, spots were huge. Didn't use the shower/ bath but the laundry room was ok. Could use some updating and maintenance. No issues and would stay here again. - Ranger18

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 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

This park is located just outside Kirtland Air Force Base. Looks like it is not in the best part of town, but that may be misleading. The owner of the park is just great. He will greet you as you enter the park and stand by your window, guiding you very effortlessly into your site. There are mostly permanent residents and you will find a mixture of older and newer RV's. We did not find the sites to be as cramped as another reviewer stated but they are not spacious either. Entirely adequate for a short term visit. We are keeping this park as one of our preferred "spots" in our AZ-OH travels. - KPsunshine

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. - DJR CMR

Nice place to stay for the night. The pull-thru spots are just long enough if you do not disconnect a your truck from the fiver. Clean, quiet and helpful staff. - Gone to the Dog Show

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%. - Lugnuts
Mar 2016 - $27.00
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

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
