Lovely park with nicely landscaped sites, great dog park, convenient amenities. It's right on 40 and noise could be an issue if it weren't for air conditioning being on. The staff are helpful and friendly. Restaurant in area will deliver and the park serves a continental breakfast in the AM. - nickypoo

Easy check-in, with a back-in site right next to the office and swimming pool, which was well maintained and refreshing. Stayed just one night. Extra special was the free breakfast, which was very good. - ChrisandBill

This park used to be pristine. A great park. I don't know what happen but it is in need of maintenance. Weeds, broken cement, long grass. That being said it is still a fairly decent park compared to what is out there these days. We would stay here again. - Steve & Terri

Nice clean pool and hot tub. Friendly and competent staff. - isabel poppit
Aug 2016 - $50.00
Great place to stay if visiting Albuquerque, or even Santa Fe as we did. Helpful and friendly staff. Site a bit tight be more than acceptable. Coming in from the West at Exit 166, we had trouble with what was an almost immediate left on Skyline Drive after coming in off the I-40 Ramp and making a right. - dandd

We have stayed here many times over 10 years and it's the most convenient RV park for Albuquerque's East side. You can pick from several types of sites with various amenities and the sites are pretty level. It's a bit pricey but the convenience is worth it. - Shadowberr

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 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

Nice park once you get here. Eight miles of a very narrow county road. Two big rigs meeting will be dicey. We camped right on the lake. Got wifi through cellphone hotspot. All major broadcasters on the antenna. Typical of a state park. That's not a negative comment. - arkietraveler
Apr 2015 - $22.00
Price reflects a $10 senior discount. Our first impression was not good. A 9 mile long, bumpy paved road to get here, and pretty dreary campground since the trees had not yet leafed out, and severe thunderstorms were in the forecast. After the pleasant staff relocated us to a waterfront site and we got settled, our opinions improved. On a nice day (ours was not) and with some leaves on the trees, this would be a very beautiful park! Full hookups, electric and sewer in the far rear, water in front. - rncordy

We love Lake Chicot State Park. It's quiet, clean, with large sites, and lots of wildlife. Last night we watched several deer grazing next to one of the pavilions. We always stay in the premium section but we've biked all around the park and most sights are fine unless there has been lots of rain. Some of the no frills sites tend to flood. We will be back. - cropduster

No showers, a lot of noise because of the road next to the campground. Narrow sites.
On the positive side: whales!! - Barbary

Friendly, accommodating manager in a beautiful location. Spaces are close as in most beachfront parks but what a view! Beach with surfers to your right, harbor to your left and a nice walk/ bike path running right in front of the beachfront sites. Loved it! - Beth p
Aug 2015 - $70.00
As others state the view is awesome! (We had a full ocean view site.) Water, beach, surf boarders, harbor, boats, birds all part of your view. Sites close, tight turns, but our 38er fit just fine even though we didn't think we'd make it at first. Enough space once set. Good power and hookups, but couldn't get a good wifi connection. Nice mellow beach area, we didn't fish, but lots of others were along the jetties. The flowers and landscaping are very pretty. No amentities at park, but food, music, drinks, supplies within 1 to 2 miles. As no reservations, we just took a chance and headed there on a Sunday and got lucky, do be prepared to be patient as you may have to wait as others get in or out of their spots. No problem, just be aware. Camp host very nice and helpful. We will go back, best view we've had at an RV park. - Duran

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

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

Large gravel area (I think most around here are like this) with quite a few large trees. Picnic table. Reasonable Wifi. Excellent value for a full hook up. Good laundry and other rooms with table, chairs, sofas, pool table. Unfortunately the pool was being repaired so no pool or spa at present. Very friendly staff. - Kiwijo
Sep 2016 - $21.00
All roads and sites are gravel. No grass anywhere. Some sites have trees, and some have Picnic tables. All are easy to get into and out of. Park is next to a Camping World (convenient) on the west side of town. All in all, a good place to stop. - ta96silver

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
