Great park to stay in, even with the trains. Actually, it appeared the trains did not run between 11pm and 6am as the train whistles were pretty much non-existent during those hours. Lots going on in this park with the little train you can ride on weekends, the city swimming pool a few steps away, picnic shelters, etc. The campsites, however, could use more shade as almost all sites are in full sun.

The sites here are very large and well-spaced out. There are a variety of site types around the park from no hookups to full hookups. Ours had water only. Our AT&T phone service, Verizon MiFi wireless and Dish TV all worked very well. The only reason I didn't rate this park a 10 was the service. We arrived on a day when there was no one working the entrance booth. A sign said the park attendant would come around and collect the fee. No one came that evening or the next morning by 9 am. We tried in vain to find someone to give our camp fee to, even stopping at the park attendant's site and knocking on the door. No one answered. We ended up going over to the Riverside COE campground and the wonderful lady in the information center called the Venango Park manager to find out what she should do to collect our fee. We will stay here again because the park is great, but hope we arrive on a day when the booth is being manned.

We have stayed here several times in the last few years. It's time to update my last review. WiFi is still "iffy", depending on the location of your site. This particular visit, we had no trouble at all with the WiFi. We did, however, have a problem with electricity. The electricity was too strong and it caused us to lose power on a couple of occasions. The site we had was adequate, but we did change from our original site because the first one was very tight. The staff was very obliging about us changing sites and were quick to let us have the site of our choice. The restaurant has undergone some changes, too. The margaritas are half the size they were when we first came here in 2015. They also have replaced the nice wood tables they had on the patio with cheaper plastic ones. That kind of diminishes the atmosphere of the place. The vendors who clean, wash, and wax campers still do a great job for a reasonable price.

Staff was helpful, immediately finding us a new site when the original site assigned to us had electrical problems. The new site was quite large and gave our 50 lb. dog plenty of room to roam. Full timers kept their sites neat and clean, which always makes a place look better. Would stay here again if in the area.

As with most KOAs the cost was a high for what you get. We normally don't stay at KOAs for this reason. The only exceptional thing about this park was the staff manning the office. They were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We would stay here again because of them. The park itself was pretty ordinary. Everything worked and the site was adequate.

Stayed here for 3 nights to see what this park is like. The wind is very strong here as the campground is out in the open and there is nothing to shelter the area. At times, there is a lot of dust and sand in the air because of the wind. Sites here are more than adequately sized. We had no problem backing in and parking our vehicle beside our 5th wheel. Vendors who wash and wax camping units are a bit pricier than others in the area, so we chose not to take advantage of their service. WiFi, sewer, and electricity all worked very well and we had no issues with any of them. There is an excellent Italian restaurant adjoining the park. There is also a great bar/hamburger place next to the park as well.

This is a great place to stop for a night or two when travelling across New Mexico. The service here is excellent. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Watch out if you are in the casino at shift change, though. Everything stops while one shift closes out and the new shift takes over. That is not a good time to need a ride to/from the casino. Otherwise, the service is very prompt. The sites are spacious and there is plenty of room for parking a vehicle and trailer. The food in the casino wasn't too great on Asian buffet night, but the items ordered from the menu looked good.

This campground is actually located 21 miles north of Pecos NM on Highway 63 and Forest Road 555. The last 5 miles are on a one lane highway, but the road is wide and there are pull outs to make passing other vehicles easy. The campground host is wonderful. He will help you find a site if needed and will also let you hook up to the electricity on the second host site if it isn't being used. The forest setting is beautiful and campsites are large and well-spaced. Altitude is about 8800 feet, so the weather is cooler in the summer than it is at lower altitudes. We plan on coming here again when we pass through the area next year.

This is a good park to stop at for a short stay. Some sites are rather close together, but that isn't a problem if the campground isn't full. That said, weekends are pretty busy, so try to come during the week if you want peace and quiet. Camp host is very friendly and helpful. This is our second stay here and we will stay here again when passing through the area. Rate reflects our Senior Pass Discount.

We stayed in the campground with 30 amp service and thought it was more than adequate for our needs. We chose a large site, which was level and easy to back into. Some of the sites did have a trench of sorts that had to be crossed when backing in, but for the most part, people had no trouble getting leveled out. We would definitely stay here again. Our unit is self-contained, so we didn't miss having a toilet or water on site.

Most sites were large although some of the back-ins were a bit close together. The campground host was very friendly. She came by every day and said hello. Didn't use the boat ramp, so don't know how the facilities were there. AT&T, Verizon MiFi and Dish all worked well. Rate reflects our Senior Pass Discount. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is about the best RV park to stay in for both Los Alamos and Bandelier National Monument. Yes, it's just a parking lot, but the sites are large and the facilities clean. There's a dog run so your pets can go off leash and play. It's easy to self pay. There is WiFi available and it works very well. The nights are quiet, so there isn't a problem sleeping. If you're going to Bandelier, the shuttle service is awesome and runs on time. Los Alamos is near by, too, so you can easily see the museums, etc. there. We stayed here twice in September and will do so again if we return to Los Alamos/Bandelier.

This is a well-maintained Corps of Engineers park. The sites in the lower camping loops are paved and all have pagodas over their picnic tables. Some have electricity and water and others are primitive. The Juniper loop has asphalt sites. Some are quite narrow and others are on the short side. We have been here before so chose site 33 in the Juniper loop. It is long enough for our 32 foot fifth wheel and double wide. It also has a view of the lake. Sites in the inner circle of Juniper loop have water and electricity. Sites on the outer circle have only electricity. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass Discount.

A Bernalillo city park, this was a very good place to spend a couple of days while we were visiting the area. It was very quiet and relaxing. Park was clean and well-maintained. Dish satellite, AT&T cell phone and Verizon MiFi worked very well here. There is also easy access to shopping, restaurants, etc. from here. Hosts are friendly and welcoming. We are already planning our next stay in this park.

This was a good place to stop for the night while passing through. The park managers are very helpful and seem to want to make their guests happy. Our site was large enough and pretty level even though it was on the side of a hill. We had to put boards under one of the tires, but we do in most campgrounds, so that was nothing new. There was a large area for walking our dog which was a plus. AT&T cell phone and Verizon MiFi worked very well here. The RV park has its own WiFi, but it was down when we were there, so we couldn't try it. We will stay here again when we pass through on I-40.
