21 Parks near Albuquerque, New Mexico

We have been here about 2 1/2 months and are leaving now, but we enjoyed our stay here very much and will surely return if we are in the area. Spacious lots with pristine hookups and excellent condition concrete patio at each and every space. The water pressure was great, internet mostly worked; however, there are times that it does not due to weather issues I would say. This facility has an indoor and an outdoor pool, exercise room, laundry room, showers. I mean, what more could you need? Our pets were readily accepted. We leave Albuquerque with fond memories and were grateful for our time here at this campground. Thank you! - hap

Very nice park, we stayed in the newer section and it is worth the extra money. The sites are large with cement pads and nice rock between the sites. The driveways are wide and the utilities where well placed. They include a continental breakfast which was a nice touch. The only down side is there is a lot of freeway noise and that may bother some people. Would stay here again. - sjones

The $150 a night rate gets you a spot in the temporary "Presidential" campground with water, 30 amp electric, and a few visits from the honey wagon depending on how long you stay. The site is on a bluff overlooking the entire 55-football-field-large launching area for 500+ hot air balloons during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, but you will be a few rows back from the front rank as sponsors and VIPs get the first row. Don't miss the early-morning flight preparations with balloons lit up by their propane burners as they prepare for flight. Suggest watching one mass launch from the restricted-access bluff (bring folding chairs), then going down on the field the next day to mingle with the crowd of spectators and balloonists as the craft are prepared for launch. Amazingly, some balloons are able to use winds in different directions at different heights to return to the launch site after a few hours in the air. There are mid-week contests best seen from on the field as balloonists try to throw weighted bags at targets, etc. Weather permitting, hundreds of balloons launch around 7 a.m. each morning, with the biggest mass ascensions on weekends and Wednesday of Fiesta Week. If the Balloon Fiesta is on your Bucket List, staying at the Presidential Campground is the way to see it. Other cites near the Fiesta are all dry camping. - Mtmoi

This place is a hidden gem in Albuquerque. Exceptional staff! Clean, clean, clean. Sites are of ample size for any rig. Park is exceptionally well maintained, very secure--gated, with security. Easy access to Kirtland AFB, I-40, and the National Nuclear Museum. Numerous great restaurants are nearby, as is hiking and mountain biking. Laundry on-site is great and there is a little store where you can easily get quarters for the machines--or pretty much anything else you need. Rocky Mountain RV is directly out the gate and across Central Ave 2-blocks away. If you need maintenance and they need to keep your rig overnight, the KOA has several great (and clean) camping cabins, and you can easily walk to Rocky Mountain RV (great if you are traveling sans car). They provide exceptional service and have a well-stocked parts department. The parts department is open Sunday's and they are also open later than pretty much anyone else. - AMMOChief

We have camped here several times to visit our daughter who lives nearby. This is one of the best "city" RV parks I have every used. Friendly, efficient staff, great pull thru spaces for the biggest rigs, immaculate grounds, gated access, clean restrooms. Good selection of cable channels. Wifi good; slows down at prime time when everybody is on, but still good. I just don't know what more you would want or expect for a home base in a city. Don't hesitate to stay here. - darwinmoore

Nice park. A little hard to find as it is on a side street. Friendly staff. The pool was closed for the season but they have a hot tub that was still open. - ArmandV

Re: wifi. It is only accessible while in the breakfast area. There is a password required. We could not get in while sitting in our coach.
Re: continental breakfast. It is pretty basic. Cold cereal. Harboiled eggs. Toast, bagels, pastry. Toaster waffles.
Re: pets. No outdoor crates are allowed. Your pet must be inside your rig.
Re: playground. It is there but probably hasn't been used in a really long time.
The sites are very easy to get into. The pull-throughs are plenty long. Basically this park is utilised by folks who need a place to stay for the night. It is a huge parking lot with full hook ups. It is clean and easy access from the freeway. But there is nothing else to call you back. You are about 10 miles from the city center of Albuquerque. - Purplemidwife

Check in was quick the people at the desk ere very friendly. We were guided to our site. The site was long enough for our 35 foot rig and had a parking spot on the side for our truck. All the hookups worked well, we did not use the cable, our site was satellite friendly. The WIFI appears to have been upgraded as it worked well, in the past it had rarely worked. The park was clean. The dog park we used was ok, nothing special but our dogs liked it. There are many stores and places to eat a few miles down Central Ave. or on the north side of Coors both a few minutes away. In all a good stay. We have been here before and will be back. - blowing weeds

Nice park. We were in the newer pull through area and found it easy to get in and out and big enough for a 45 ft MH and toad. Sites are gravel and level. - peddy dick

This RV park is centrally located. There is a section of permanent mobile homes surrounding the office. The RV section is 50% occupied by long term residents, some have been there for years. Management does not enforce their rules. My neighbor had an old car with visible damage and no license plate in their space. Some people allow their dogs to run around without a leash. Pull thru sites are positioned head-to-toe with little space between your neighbor. Wi-fi gets overloaded due to number of users. Rate is based on monthly rate and there was an additional charge to use a credit card. Train noise is noticeable but is 3 blocks away. There is more noise from people driving by with loud exhausts and music. - jnateg

Rate I gave based on monthly rate of $495 which includes electric. There are more long term residents than travelers coming and going but we don't see that as a problem, not a lot of visiting between residents. We have lived in Albuquerque many years before becoming full timers and return here for 1 to 2 months at a time staying in this park. While traveling we select a different type of park, this is a basic urban park. Park is approximately 5 - 10 minutes from Osuna exit off I-25. Not sure why people have a problem with the office and manager, I never have. I find him easy to get along with. We've never needed reservations unless it's balloon fiesta and then rates and availability are much different. It is all gravel w/ cement pad but pretty level. Noise is minimal, some distant train noise occasionally. I've used the pools, indoor and out, a number of times with grandkids and always been happy with them. Centrally located if your seeing the sites. - abqnm

Our site was clean and level. Park was quiet after I reported loud music. It was taken care of promptly.
In the month of June and the only pool open is indoor, warm and had 2 cockroacches floating on top. Outdoor pool not open until July due to inspection problems is what I was told. I'd much rather be swimming outdoors.
Cable Comcast isn't always reliable. Internet is the same especially if you work while you travel. - Kristen Sorge

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 nice Park! Beautiful clubhouse, immaculate restrooms and shower rooms. Manager very friendly and service oriented. Employees helpful and attentive. Wide, long spaces with ample maneuver room. We will definitely stay here again. - krj89

This place is immaculate! Everything about the place screams brand new, and it is. Good spacing between sites and spotless grounds. We stayed here initially on our way to AZ, and were so impressed we chose to stay here again on our way back east. - USMCRET

Great RV sites! Clubhouse with fireplace, coffee, huge TV, Free coffee, book exchange, board games, couches, pool table and immucalate huge showers and restrooms. Everything new and decorated in retro theme. Gated, Fire pits, tables, patches of grass and walk or shuttle to Casino. Overpriced if goes back to $50 a night but great value at $30. (Particularly if going to give the Casino some of your money)
Staff excellent and very helpful. - NanciRV

We arrived during balloon festival, pricey but worth it. We were 1 mile as crow flies from balloon festival. We were able to get a site with 1 day notice! This is a mobile home park, which made for spacious lots, and family activities. Great club house, nice pool table, pool, volleyball, play ground, and basketball court. We had full access to all the park had to offer. WiFi was purchase so we opted out of that. Could see balloons and fireworks from site. 9 miles from Old town but all highway. If staying here during festival be prepared for high delays on highway and arguing with cops about needing to go onto Pan American Highway when balloon festival is trying to park. You get a traffic permit but still have to argue with cops. Only way into park is through their detours. Awake at 6:00 AM because of helicopters above balloon festival. I would stay again, staff very helpful and friendly. - Cynthia Gowin

This is actually a mobile home village with some empty spaces used for RVs. The spaces are all pea gravel and fairly level. We needed a place to park while we attended a function at a nearby hotel and this park fulfilled that need. However, the large speed bumps every block were bone jarring, even at our lowest speed and re-arranged contents severely. Each space was equipped with water, electricity and sewer but the water was buried under pea gravel and required the use of needle-nose pliers to remove gravel from the water pipe to let us "plug in" the water key provided at check in. Each space had a glass curb side light globe but ours and our friends were broken and the incandescent bulb at our friends had its filaments exposed presenting a possible shock hazard. The showers at the club house don't open until 8:00am. No receipt was provided automatically and we forgot to ask for one. Be sure to arrive before 5:00pm since the office closes then and there is no provision for a late check in such as a bulletin board with space information. - Mark & Dawn

This a mobile home community with some sites available to RVs. LONG (apx 1 hr) check-in procedure w/14-page legal-size 30 day lease, over 30 would require credit report so we did 30 & then "renewed" for second 30 & the for additional 11 days. Utilities not configured for RV, water & sewer poorly located, natural gas connection in way of back-in (we parked on concrete patio instead of on dirt beside it). Water hydrant in hole in ground (would have been under RV). 3" sewer pipe non-standard for RV connection (would have been behind RV). Large round hole where electric used to be underground would have been under RV. Sloped 2ft or more to rear. Lots of red ants. Mail via USPS, but took nearly 3 weeks to get mail box key. Most rules are commonly broken: 1 pet limit, barking dogs, dogs running loose, firecrackers, 2 car limit but up to 7 cars at some sites. Free WIFI available only in clubhouse. Observed police action in park 3 times plus private security 2 times during 10 week stay. On checkout were told est 4-6 weeks to get remaining portion of deposit back after final electric reading. In midst of all their RV-unfriendly "stuff," they had a very supportive staff. - AFChap

Rate of $20.40 per night reflects 2 nights at Passport America and 1 night with Good Sam discounts averaged together, full hookups. We stayed here 3 nights. We arrived after hours and one day before our reservation, we just picked a spot and they allowed us to keep it. Majority of spots are full hookup, a few are electric and water only. There is a dump station available. Previous reviews are accurate and describe our experience. We did not use park WIFI, but is available at no cost. We had strong signal for Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. Vintage trailer/car display and items throughout office building were interesting. Staff very friendly and accommodating. We would/will stay here again if in area. - ECM1

A very nice campground for the price. The retro travel trailers are cool. They have tried to keep the retro/historic feel of Rt. 66 at this campground but that is kinda hard with all the traffic on I-40 whizzing by. Nothing fancy but overall a great value. Bathrooms are clean. Water pressure fair. Gift shop/trading post has local crafts, jams & jellies, etc. We would stay here again. - Lynn and Linda
Feb 2017 - $31.00
We liked this park enough westbound, that we returned on our eastbound Route 66 trip. Easy in and out on Route 66 adjacent to I-40 and next door to a Camping World. Propane on site. Knowledgeable and friendly staff who know the good places to visit. The park is dirt/gravel and can be muddy, but it is well maintained. Power was clean and water pressure was good. The bathrooms and showers at the front main building were clean. There is also a traditional, residential style bath and shower inside the main building near the laundry. A great gift shop, lounge, billiard room, and laundry facilities. There are vintage travel trailers near the front available to rent (on site, you can't tow them off!). We would return again (We did). - usernametaken

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
