Huge number, 1600 I'm told, of RVs dry camping close to Balloon Fiesta event. Spectacular view of AM balloon launch. Free shuttle buses from park-Fiesta. Efficient volunteer check-in with personal golf cart direction and help parking, to site. Dump service and potable water available for a fee. Porta potties available throughout park. Was a nice touch to have local newspaper delivered to the coach early every AM. The city of ABQ goes out of its way to assure welcome for so many visitors. Way overpriced for what you get, but sensational way to see/attend Balloon Fiesta. - Hics
Friendly, helpful staff, sites were fairly level with plenty of room,amenities rooms were clean and in good working order. Close proximity to Camping World, just off the highway but little to no traffic noise. Easy access to Albuquerque. We would definitely stay here again. - Peter McK
We stayed in the VIP West lot; there are several different RV lots, and they vary quite a bit from one to another. So you should read these reviews carefully to understand which area is being described. As has been pointed out, in the VIP West area there are no hookups, it's strictly dry camping. What I was told was that "friendly" generators were allowed, meaning those that are quiet like a Honda or Yamaha; unfortunately some of my neighbors used the very loud commercial generators. My dog had a very hard time with the asphalt surface, as it included some larger stones. Staying here is not inexpensive. Despite all these downsides, I have to give the park a 6, because the balloon fiesta is such a delightful experience. It was only about a five minute walk from our trailer to the balloon field. And on a couple of mornings hundreds of balloons came right over our rig. Unbelievable. I plan to return for the festival next year. - russingr
Paved sites, quiet park, garbage picked up at site every morning. Good cable & wifi. Nice big dog run. Staff were friendly. Would stay here again. - 69636
This KOA was very convenient to relatives, so it worked for us. It's right next to I-40 and the noise can keep you awake at night if you have the windows open. But it's location can't be beat. The campground is clean and well kept. The hot tub is HOT, just the way we like it. The staff was very helpful. If we end up in ABQ again, this is definitely where we would stay. - cmgoeke
Nice clean park and facilities, friendly staff, snug fit but comfortable, gravel patio with picnic table, asphalt pad and drive ways, easy in and out, some highway noise but located in town so you are close to everything. We had to have our towed fixed and the front desk was very helpful with rental cars and grocery stores for our stay. I did hear some overhead planes but not often. Trash pick up at your site, free WiFi and everything worked great. Loved the dog parks. Nice stay, no complaints. - PERRELLAS
Sites a bit tight. Just enough room for trailer and truck. Astro turf patio with almost new picnic table. Roads were a little tight but no problems. Park was full but people were friendly. Some long term residents. Utilities all good. Would stay here again. - cdogdad
We don't frequent KOAs but based on other reviews decided to give this one a try. On a good note, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The overall appearance is decent with pea size gravel at the sites and very green, albeit fake grass. Utilities worked fine and WIFI was okay. There are several hotspots, and if you can find the one that works for you it's pretty reliable. There is a really quirky brewery you can walk to that actually has a private gate on the KOA property. Don't let the chickens deter you ... Great beer, food, and service! Now the downsides. For a large motorhome, it's a bit challenging to move through the park. Our site was long enough but sloped in the back so we had to pull as far forward as possible without sticking out in the interior road. We took up every bit of the width and had to reposition a couple times to avoid hitting trees with our slides out. A big pet peeve of mine - noise! There is a plant across the street that starts up its machines/lifts early in the morning. Various and sundry constant noises that last all day. Add in the interstate traffic, sirens, jake brakes, and train whistles and it's quite a combination of irritating sounds. We would not stay here again. - Free
We don't generally stay in KOA because of the price. This was a welcome sight. It was impeccable! Well done. We were guided to our site. Utilities were lighted, and easy to find. Park was an easy on, off the freeway. No traffic noise. - rainman0
Nice park to stay at as we started out our March trip. Sites are paved with nice spacing in between & with Camping World right across the freeway to stock up on everything you need for your RV. Its is a very large park and it can get windy being out on the open plains. - coolplanetg
The cleanest, most professional park we have experienced. All park employees were very friendly and helpful. Love the breakfast room, gift shop, paved spots, picnic tables and cleanliness of the entire park. Can't wait to come back. - The Traveling Tiedemans
We stayed for three weeks, and loved it. The park is located on West Mesa, to the west of Albuquerque and several hundred feet higher in elevation. The park has a new (treeless) section and an older section with nice trees. Some sites are level concrete pads, some (like ours) are level, clean gravel. Some back-ins, mostly pull-thrus. We stayed in the back row, overlooking the desert. Good WiFi, good utilities, propane available, excellent and friendly staff, clean laundry and a free continental breakfast every morning in the "gathering room." - Ray Waugh
I called to make a reservation, however, the owner refused to make one for me and sarcastically told me I didn't need one unless I needed 27 spaces. On our day of arrival, we were told they were full due to a local event. The owner was rude and if it were not for a cancellation, we would have been out of luck. Park is run down and filled with less than desirable long term tenants. We will never stay here again! - Kevin & Liz
The person who runs the main office is the most unfriendly person I have ever talked with. You can say Hi to him 15 times without him ever saying anything back. They have listed times the office is opened, however, 50% of the time they are not opened during those times. The prices are also a bit high for a "park" with just about nothing but dirt with no grass and almost no trees. Water goes out all the time. The pools are never opened in the summer when they should be. If you need Wi-Fi you have to go to the office and get a password but good luck cause the office is never opened. - Madhatter009
Nice RV park, paved patio, all gravel. The only downside is to use Wi-Fi you need to go at the main building. - Kermitt
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 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
This is a very cramped park on busy city streets. The campsites are so small that we hear every cough and conversation around us. There are no restrooms or showers, or cable TV. Neighborhood dogs make lots of noise, and there is a light smell of someone's black water tank in the air. The only electrical hook-up is 50 amp, so if you have a 20 or 30 amp vehicle you will need a converter cable. If you don't have the converter, the campground will lend you one for a $25.00 cash deposit (which is returned when you return the cable). There is very little space to be outside. We were parked right up against the back sides of two trailers. Most of the sites here are filled by apparently permanent residents. This is definitely a mobile home park, not an RV park. - travel51
Park is located on I-40 next door to Camping World, but we were not bothered by road noise. Roads & sites are all gravel & sand. Nice long & wide sites with plenty of room to park. Restrooms & laundry were clean. Employees were friendly & helpful. Neat collection of old cars & trailers behind office. Rate was C2C Good Neighbor Park. We will stay again when in this area. - c lewis
Enchanted Trails has become the "go to" RV camp for us when we are in Albuquerque for various events especially for the International Balloon Fiesta gathering spot for Airstreams in October!
We have TMobile so fringe service at best. Internet service available is a challenge but, we had water, electric and sewer so we're happy.
There are plenty of places to walk the dogs and the sunsets over the West Mesa are beautiful!
You are not to far from town so have all the amenities you could want plus Camping World next door.
Be aware., that the facility is set up with gravel roads etc. so it can get dusty if the wind blows.
There are plenty of fun vintage cars and trailers around to look at. - Airstream2157
Plenty of room at each site; nice campground owner-managers; comfortable place to do laundry. Very convenient location, easy to get to places west and south of Albuquerque. It is at an I-40 exit and it was also easy to drive over to I-25 on local roads to head south without getting into a lot of traffic. - DMW1837
Very clean, friendly campground close to Albuquerque. Great rates. Everything we needed. We liked the campground and the city so much that we decided to stay another night. Some interstate noise. Great views. - Hartleyfam
This is a more than adequate campground with wide spaces and plenty of room. The Wi-Fi leaves a lot to be desired. It is both slow and intermittent. It is reasonably convenient to town, where there is plenty to do. Do not forget to take the tram ride to the top of the mountain. - LarryJohnston
We have stayed at this park three times, all one-night stopovers. It's convenient to I-40, adequate sized spaces, decent wi-fi, good off-air TV reception. Did not utilize showers or restrooms. We will definitely stay here in the future. - BRNewsom
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
We had bad vibes when we reserved a spot but came here anyway. Lady who took reservation was obviously new and asked the same questions over and over. They required the full amount of our one-day stay in advance with the reservation and quickly charged it to our card before our visit. When we arrived the site they had given us had been purposely given to another party who could stay longer, so we were given a much less desireable site near the office. The park is adequately maintained but showing its age with many permanent residents. Management is definitely lacking. This park is okay for a night, but we wouldn't stay there again unless a last resort. - Johnny Boy
