Picnic tables walled-in for privacy. Nice doggie park. Working on improving landscaping with some great ideas. Nice cement walk-way to step out onto at each site although not a concrete pad. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground and clean and tidy. The staff were excellent. Gravel driveways and sites. The utilities were too much in the middle of the site width ways. If they were over further to the lot Line then there would be more usable site and it would be much easier to pull in! The sites are wide enough but would be much better with the relocation of the utilities. The pool was clean and tidy and most welcome in the heat. The laundeynfacitilties were excellent. The internet, as with 90%!of campgrounds needs upgrading. Either the link drops or you can't get on, especially in the evenings. We campers like to learn more about attractions, restaurants, retailersmetc around us and plan for the next day... We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Really nice owners and employees. Very friendly and helpful. Nice bathrooms and pool. Watch your awnings when the winds kick up. Sites are close but I've had tighter spots with other KOAs. Concrete pad with concrete table and partial wall for a little privacy. Would prefer more space and shade. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Borrow sleds and check out White Sands. I don't think the missile museum was worth the drive, but it's free. Wish we had seen the space museum but had to do some repairs during our stay. We walked our dog to Griggs park to throw the ball. There is a dog park near there as well.

Fantastic park with fantastic service. Really! The rate we list also reflects my savings from cashing in $25 in reward bucks. Also note that we stayed in a premium patio site. These are super nice and include a gas grill, exterior lighting, raised fire pit, and lots of room. We changed our reservation twice and they were very accommodating. We were led to our site. The maintenance team cleans and rakes each site as people depart. They also clean the grills and fire pits. Every staff member we encountered was friendly, professional, and proud of their park. They have live music on Tuesday and Friday evenings. They have complimentary coffee and a nice gift shop. They were super helpful regarding places to go and places to eat. You know how picky parks can be about pet pickup. Our dog was sick and there was nothing but a puddle to pick up. The maintenance man was nearby and said not to worry about it and that he would clean it up. Wow! Please remember, you are in a desert. It gets windy and hot. Another plus for this park is that they really do work on their landscaping. They use drip irrigation and plan drought-tolerant (though messy) trees. They really are trying to make it nice for you. You are only two blocks off the main road but won't hear any bothersome road noise. You will hear the trains but they aren't bad. Site E06 shares its front porch with the tent campers. Wasn't a problem and you have a nice view and shade from nearby trees. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Oh my. Get out of the park and enjoy. White Sands Natl Monument is a must. We did a day trip to hike and went back for the sunset ranger walk. The KOA will loan you sleds for the sand dunes. Three Rivers Petroglyph site is excellent. Drive up to Cloudcroft and do one of the trestle trails. Daytrip to Roswell Go to one of the Pistachio farms and take the farm tour.

This KOA provided a list of local amenities (restaurants, stores and attractions) and lent out sleds with wax for sledding at the White Sands National Monument so you didn't have to buy them. We were in the older section which had 5-6 feet concrete block walls to shield your picnic table and provide privacy from other campers, very nice to have (I dislike looking at someone else's sewer hook-up. The staff was very helpful and the laundry was really clean. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Surprisingly there were several things to see and do in Alamagordo. We drove up the mountain to Cloudcroft to shop and eat BBQ at Mad Jack's. We visited the Space Museum, the Model railroad museum and White Sands National Monument.

Had us on the waiting list for a 50amp, and they came through in a big way. Brand new spot in the brand new section, just completed the day we arrived, electric meter at all zeros! This was a big long level gravel pull through. 36' motorhome with tow dolly attached AND our subcompact toad all fit. Great composite deck, privacy fence, brick lamp posts with nice lighting at the site, brand shiny new three burner propane grill WITH propane, nice bistro patio set w/2 chairs and the cutest chimnea fireplace. Brand new plantings and no grass yet. Each of these new sites look to be different in terms of furniture and some have fire tables as opposed to the chimnea. Laundry worked well $1.50 washer and $1.25 dryer. Dog park was small, but near our site and the thin layer of wood chips on the ground helped with mud and dust. Power and sewer worked great, water was hard but tasted good. Internet was very good for a campground, little trouble getting online, but not enough bandwidth to stream Netflix. A little construction noise during the day as there are more of these sites being completed, but quiet enough at night. Mountains in the background are nice too. All in all, a pretty great little park in a good location for attractions. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

White Sands is a MUST. Bring a camera, your sunglasses, a hat and a couple of bottles of water per person. Be sure to take the drive all the way out past where the pavement ends. You will be amazed. Also see Three Rivers Petroglyph site north of town. Can be an arduous climb, bring water, a windbreaker and sunglasses along with your water and camera. Sierra Blanca in the background was breathtaking.

Great staff. Wifi was quite good at times. Laundry was $1.50 dryer $1.25. The internal roads need work but i suppose that is in there plans as they are currently doing work to improve the campground. They were manageable in there current condition. There were trains going pass a couple of times but it was nice to here there whistle. One block from highway so no noise from passing traffic. We would defiantly stay here again. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here on our way home from Deming. I had a hard time fitting my 30' fifth wheel in the site. My back bumper was nearly out into the road. There is no way this site is 30' wide like the KOA website says. The sewer does not have a threaded fitting, but they did have a few good sized rocks to hold your house in place. THERE IS NO CABLE TV! We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Older park that took a little maneuvering for our 40 ft 5th wheel with 6 slides to fit in the spot with just right with he pedestal and picnic table fitting between the slides.

Spent 3 nights in mid-March. The KOA was easy to find, check-in went smoothly and the grounds were relatively neat and tidy. Spaces are very close to each other. There is a concrete picnic table and a BBQ grill at each site. A small block wall provides minimal privacy from neighbors. There was some construction going on as the park is adding some new spaces. We were sorry to learn after the fact that there was live music on site every Friday night. We were not informed of this at check-in. The park is convenient to many attractions close to Alamogordo. We would probably stay again if we were in the area. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed in this park for 4 nights. Check in was great - informative, friendly. The park is older so the sites are narrow but level. The hook ups are to the back of the site, I needed my 20ft hose to connect. There are concrete divider walls, table and patio area at each site. There is a small, fenced in Dog Park. WiFi was slow so we used Verizon Hot Spot. There is some Train noise. Rest rooms looked to be undergoing improvements. You could request a Fire Ring.

The couple who run this place couldn't be nicer folks. We arrived without a reservation and was quickly assigned a site that met our needs. As far as KOAs, this one was reasonably priced. The sites were laid out in the 70s so many could be overly snug for larger rigs with slides and close to your neighbors in most cases. Mine was dead on level and I suspect the others were also. Hookups were at the rear of the site so I had to use an extension for my sewer hose. Each had a concrete picnic table, a paved sidewalk that ran the length of the site and a open lattice concrete wall on the west side of the site affording some late afternoon shade and a bit of separation from the adjoining sites. Being 2 blocks off the highway, road noise was not noticeable. The Wifi worked better than many parks we have stayed in. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Loved the Lowes grocery store in town. I don't know if they are affiliated with the Lowes that has building supplies, but it is a top notch grocery store. Nice large movie theatre and of course White Sands National Park, which was awesome.
