We found this campground pretty much as advertised by the previous raters, with only 2 exceptions. One rater stated “WiFi is a joke”, we found that not to be true, we had a strong signal and response time that is typical for most campgrounds. Our complaint was with the sewage connections: ours was more than 1 foot out of the ground, as many others were, as most of you know liquid does not run uphill, we had to hand drain our hose, but we survived.

This is a pretty large campground, 300+; it is pretty nice and should be rated higher than I’m doing, if they could straighten up their act. It’s clean, apparently well maintained, a couple of really great employees. Like all campgrounds they have rules, but unlike most campgrounds they just don’t follow them. Examples: “No golf carts.” Bring them, they are here and they don’t say a word. They have fixed times when children are not allowed in the pool so adults can swim in peace: not enforced. Quiet hours: forget it, they don’t exist. Trash is a big problem: dumpsters need to be emptied more frequently, on weekends they need to be emptied at least twice. They empty them on Thursday, then again on Monday, but by Saturday there is trash everywhere because the dumpsters are full. While we were here a dump station overflowed, it was 3 days before anyone even looked at it and another 2 days before it was repaired, leaving a whole bunch of smelly days. They could do much better.

This IS a very interesting and curious campground, but in the end it embodies what family camping is all about. A campground of over 350 sites, where it appears that more than 3/4ths of those are local campers who have rented for the year and are in for the weekend or an occasional week. This 3/4ths of the campground are very nicely laid out, they have very large and secluded sites, but the vast majority of these sites have no sewage, there is quite a bit of blue tub hauling here, I’ve never been to a campground that has FOUR dump stations before. For those sites that are open for the traveler, they present somewhat the same large and semi secluded plan as to the rest of the camp. FEW are 50 amp, few have sewage, but those that do are quite nice. WiFi is good where it is available (around the office), cable TV is good, most roads are gravel, most sites are level and gravel. There are 2 ways into this camp, do not follow your GPS, follow the instructions in Travel Life, we came by GPS and it is a bit hairy. In the end, this really isn’t a travelers campground, this is a community campground targeted to family camping. This is something rarely seen, especially for a KOA, we commend them and this is from a person who has very little positive to say about a KOA ever.

You know, when this place is finished it will be a 10!!!! They have spent much money here; they need to spend more. Beautiful setting, built into the side of a mountain; get here early or the higher up you'll be. Sites are really good, large, level, all gravel. WI-FI is acceptable, there is no TV, Nada, no cable, no local and your dish just might not make it at all. The clubhouse broadcasts are all NASCAR races on a 20' screen.

GREAT overnight campground, easy access, level sites, good WI-FI, will stay here again when passing through.

Actually, this is a nice little campground for a KOA. We normally don't like to stay at KOAs because most of them rent 80% of their sites to permanent transient or migrant workers at monthly rates: there is none of that here. It looks as if only the KOA staff themselves had units in this park. They have good WiFi and cable TV, with small but mostly level sites, with good shade in the right places. It’s very clean, the staff is very nice. I would have rated it a 10, except for the bathrooms, though clean, are just plain old and warn.

The grounds here are nice, with clean level sites, though somewhat small. Shade trees are not really available for motorhomes, those sites are pretty much in the sun field and the setting sun is directly into the windshield. The WiFi is basically non-existent, it is very slow, slower than what I remember dial-up speed to be. It really isn't worth the money.

This place has everything, except picnic tables and shade!!! Clean, secure, no stone roadways or sites, happy campers abound, absolutely no obvious 'permanents'. Loved it, will stay here again when we are in the area.

Actually, this campground is basically a parking lot, no more. It is a few acres, off exit 163, that has been cleared and completely covered with crushed lava rock, interspersed with a few small trees with electric, water and sewer hookups. No amenities period, you’re here, you park, if you haven’t brought it with you, you’re not going to find it here. There is NO GREEN HERE! It is mostly inhabited with ‘permanents’, in very old units, that have been here for awhile. The operators are quite nice, and try to be accommodating within their limits, bathrooms are clean. WiFi is NOT. Very, very spotty, if it’s there at all, most times it didn’t even work at the office, where the antenna was, let alone at our site, which was at the far end of the parking lot, AND IT’S VERY, VERY SLOW. This is a Passport camp and maybe that explains everything, you get what you pay for. We would not stay here again. Actually the KOA at exit 167 where we stayed 5 years ago is MUCH better, and we hate KOAs.

This is a nice little campground, between Bryce and Zion, people are great, it's clean and quiet, wi-fi is good, there is nothing to do beyond basic camping (which was great for us, if you have kids, it should be avoided). There is no cell service in Glendale, period. Owners of land here are looking for BIG bucks to build a tower and they are apparently not going to get it!! We were here for a week!

Another old KOA. Roads are gravel and fairly narrow, some site have concrete tire strips, most others ar just gravel and most are fairly level. Very nice native NM landscaping. The 50 amp sites look to be an add on and those roadways are smaller yet than the 30 amp. Park is quiet except for the heavy equipment construction behind the park that starts at 0630am. You are right in the heart of Taos. WiFi works well at your site.

I am rating this previously unrated campground to warn 'big rigs' that this is not for you even though they advertise it as such (it's a Passport campground 26 miles from Taos). This 'looks' like a rather small rustic campground as we walked through it. We did not stay there because we could not have gotten our rig into the campground safely.

What a GREAT place, very clean and well kept. Beautiful sunrises! Easy in, easy out. DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS. It will make you turn on Rt 14 off of Rt 599. You need to go straight there instead. WiFi is excellent, only drawbacks its dirt roads, but you are in New Mexico and most of them are.

Date of Stay:

Very poor park, dusty, small sites, difficult to get a 40' in, wifi non-existant, look for a better place to stay.

Like all old KOAs, it's OLD. Many old 'permanent' trailers around. Plus a dozen or so 'permanent' house trailers. Small cramped roads make it a bit difficult for large motorhomes to navigate. WI-FI spotty. Friendly staff, a nice gaggle of ducks that visit often with a nice pond, overnighter only!
