10 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

Goof pull through sites for big rigs towing vehicles. Very friendly staff. Good resource for places to eat and other information. Sites are well maintained and easily accessible for hookups. Sites are level on hard surface. Beside I-40 south but there is a tall sound wall. Noise is constant but becomes white noise except for trucks using exhaust brakes down hill. Noise not much of an issue. - Frankjk

Nice KOA in downtown ABQ. Full amenities. Sites are fairly close together. Full 50 amp hookups, with utilities in a good location, easy to hook up. Good coverage for Verizon and DirecTV, plus had cable included. Asphalt roads within the park. Friendly staff who guided us to site and assisted with parking. Would not stay there again due to the price. - Deniselg53

This park is in town, but Albuquerque is spread out and you still need transportation. There is access to busses within a couple blocks and the Enterprise and Hertz offices are nearby. The park is well laid out with roomy sites and level, gravel surfaces. It's well maintained and service is friendly and fast. It's right next to the Interstate but there's a tall concrete wall and traffic noise diminishes greatly after about 9pm. The park has lots of trees, although not all sites are benefited. We camped here in a 35' motorhome. Would definitely stay again. - Nortguy

This is a nice clean park. The spaces are very tight and it was full to near full. It was convenient to do some sightseeing and visit with some family in the area. - Chalkie

A decent RV park in a run-down part of town. Once inside the walls & high fences, you feel safe. Sites are sloped with level spot on top. Has a playground for kids and a fenced-in playground for dogs. No freeway noise but there is some noise from neighboring properties. Was very busy for March; y0u might want to reserve ahead. - Old Mountain Man

Level,gravel spot with picnic table sitting on artificial turf.
Sites close but not tight. Some of the turns in the campground a little tight.
Loved the feel of this well kept KOA. For sure would return. - sp123

We did not utilize the rest room or showers. Although the pool area was not used by us a walk through indicted that the pool is heated to 88 degrees and the SPA is heated to 102 degrees. The SPA is in an enclosed area. The grounds are well maintained and the staff members are very pleasant and helpful. The dog park uses small chunks of rubber with some pebble. The dogs do not seem to mind this environment. Our site was roomy, on the end of a row. Cable service is analog standard definition and adequate. The free breakfast is a typical continental breakfast and is in a nice area next to the check-in. - Waynem

Very nice place. Clean, good sites and roads. Free breakfast every day. Equipped store. We were here with an RV rally. Nice club house we could use for pot luck and card playing. Would stay here again. - milodog

We pay a little extra for the Big Rigs Pull Through section but it is worth it. Lots of room, paved and level, no pesky trees to interfere with the satellite reception.
We will stay here again. - MBRADLEY

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

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

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
May 2016 - $27.00
Rate is based on weekly rate. It is not a destination in itself however it is convenient to the sights and activities in Albuquerque. Most of the park is long termers and storage. Electric power is steady, however water pressure is low, 45PSI when park is quiet but even lower when busy. There is both traditional parking and "nose to tail", (sharing a patio). People tied dogs to the picnic tables and left them alone outside to bark at anything and everything, we did not appreciate having to navigate a couple of tied up neighbor dogs to get into our unit. Sights are quiet close together and can be a little confusing to get into. Sewer connections on this row are raised as much as 12". Somel sights share a sewer and water connection. Good item: water hookup is high off the ground, so you don't have to worry about animals urinating on the faucets. Park is all dirt and rock and can be very dusty in wind. Animal waste is much in evidence. Staff in the office is nice and friendly; however there is no presence in the park itself Traffic noise from the freeway was not too bad to us. Wifi does work, however is spotty and often drops off. On the positive side, there are several very cute vintage trailers to see, an old Hudson car, nice little store, clean laundry room and a meeting room for groups. They have a bathhouse, but we did not use it. They also sell propane on site. Easy access to I40 and there is a Camping World right next door. We would stay here again if passing though, but would not stay more then two nights. - Fixn2gocamp

Our site was long and level. Our neighbors were close, but everyone got slides and awnings out without interference. There is no grass nor dedicated dog walk, but there is lots of dirt space around the periphery of the park. Our utilities (water, sewer, electric, AT&T cell coverage, and wifi) worked fine. The wifi does require that one find the right window to be near, but then it worked fine for us. The park is very convenient to the interstate. There's some traffic noise, but not too much IMHO. I liked the place for an overnight stop. - Just Dave

No WiFi. All sites gravel and dust. Sites very close and no shade. Walking distance to Camping World. - Rascal123
Apr 2016 - $28.00
Well located on the west side of Albuquerque, this park is great for a few days. We had a long, level pull thru and all utilities worked well. The staff was friendly and helpful. Camping World is just across the freeway, if you need supplies. Some freeway noise, but certainly not objectionable. - ronboett

Very nice park, easy in/out off I-40, only spent one night and it was great, had some road noise but for our needs it was perfect and the price is right! - Uncle Billy

Price change from website. Rude owner. Poor WiFi. Sites too close together. Rules not enforced. - WillyChar
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
