This is a higher end KOA. It must be in a bad part of town because they have very strict security with constant patrols. lock gates at night, and strict attention paid to who is coming and going. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our site was a typical sort for a KOA with the other campers nearby and a small patch of coarse desert grass. The playground and pool (which was closed) looked nice and big. We enjoyed their very nice hot tub our first evening. The dog park area was just loose gravel and two narrow fenced lots. The dogs did not enjoy it. We walked them around the campsite instead. They placed all the dog owners together and we were surrounded by dogs, most very nice but one nasty threesome of very spoiled small yappy dogs two sites over barked incessantly, literally by the hour, day and night. That was very unpleasant to put up with. Not the fault of the KOA but the constantly roving security didn't seem to care. The washrooms and showers near our campsite were as luxurious as a fancy spa consisting of three individual rooms instead of male and female rooms with stalls so a family or couple can shower together. The laundromat was spacious and immaculate and a reasonable $2.25 for wash and $1.75 for dry. Propane was very cheap. The cost of this KOA was surprisingly high $50/night even with our KOA discount. It is in the city of Albuquerque itself, on the east side, and very close to the National Museum of Nuclear Science and Physics which is why we stopped there for two nights. For some reason our KOA accumulated points were valued at $20 at previous stops but when I inquired about using our points towards the $50 I was informed the same points were only worth $10 here. Very nice campground but I don't see what was worth 1.5X higher price compared to other KOAs we stayed at this trip except location in the city. We don't plan on going back. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This park is convenient to I-40. Checkin was efficient and the staff were helpful in getting us in. The interior roads are wide enough and the pull through site that we used was plenty long for our 45-foot motorhome and car. The park is well maintained, neat and clean. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

Great staff. Roads easy to get around. Site was level. Road noise not too bad. Laundry was very expensive $2.25 a load and $1.75 to dry. Wifi was better than most parks. Gates locked at night but guard there to let you in. I did not feel unsafe in the neighbourhood. We would stay there again. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

This has to be one of the nicest KOA campgrounds we've seen in our 25+ years of camping. This is the one which should set the bar for all the others. While it's just feet from I-40, a tall cement wall attenuates the highway sounds considerably. Staff were welcoming and smiling. The campground was exceptionally clean. TV and Internet were both very good. The only drawback is that it's under the airport flightpath but flights didn't appear to be too late into the evening. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed one night here on our way back home. This is a nice park with paved, level sites and gravel yards. We were escorted to our site and the hosts were very friendly. Wifi was very slow. We had 2 bars LTE on ATT and 4 bars of 4G on Verizon. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy in and out from I-40. In what appears to be a pretty sketchy part of town, but completely fenced in and gate closed at night with guard. Site was clean and level. Cable worked well and wifi wasn't bad. Two dog parks that are both cross-fenced, so essentially four. Staff I spoke with was very friendly. Would stay there again, but not at that price. Like others have said, a little pricey for what you get. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here numerous times in the past several years. When we arrived it looked as if they had spruced it up a bit. Got to our site and they had done an overlay on the pads. New picknic tables and firepits. The now have security at the gate after 7:00PM Just a pleasant experience. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

Hung out here for a few days waiting for Harvey. Large park, been around for many years. Had a "premium" site. Concrete patio. Fair wifi. Excellent TV antenna reception but they do have cable. Large site next to a large old shade tree. Two fenced dog parks, though the larger one was divided in two. Nice touch.

As mentioned in other posts, night time guard, we felt very safe. Interstate noise can be heard when outside, but we ran both AC's and inside was quiet as 2 noisy AC units on High. Nice place to hang out while visiting Albuquerque. Laundry room was clean. Miniature golf course was well worn from usage.

Don't waste your money on a premium site, unless you really want to impress nobody. Next time, we'll get a regular site as this one was not worth the extra bucks. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Older KOA but in great shape. Only stayed one night but the park seemed to have everything you would need. The family restrooms / showers in the middle of the park were a little strange. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Easy to get to and find. Gated with night gate guard. Sites/roads all paved. Sites are adequate for a tree, picnic table and a fire pit. No problems with leveling or hook-ups. Wifi seems adequate but my Verizon Hotspot is faster. Really nice puppy parks; children playground; putt-putt golf. Hot tup (open), pool (closed - boo). Cable channels but mine was "fuzzy" so just used OTA HD channels. There are a number of restaurants near by. Really the only con is the price but then I guess you are paying for a secure, gated community with all the amenities. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

The park had quite a few amenities from a fenced in dog park, goofy golf, pool, hot tub and game room. The park was very well maintained but the sites are very close together. Husband described it as "tighter than skinny jeans." We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a standard KOA, although an extremely expensive one. The campground is located right next to the I-40 and easily accessible. The noise levels are not too bad. Service is good and a guy on a golf cart escorts you to your site. The children's playground basically consists of a $269 plastic contraption from Toys R Us and is really not worth the effort. Sites are clean, level and functional but quite tightly packed. This KOA is Ok to stay at if you are passing through and do not have time to find anywhere else but, and this is a big BUT, it is totally overpriced. We were charged $60, which is totally overpriced given what you are getting. You are better of going to the KOA North Albuquerque, which is fairly similar and about $20 less.

We did a mix of hookup and storage so we could travel back home for a week. They were completely accommodating and flexible, friendly and helpful. That said, it is a very large RV park, right next to the highway and very much a parking lot. It is also a good 20 minutes outside of central Albuquerque and in a rundown neighborhood of light industry. The park itself is very well run, good security and great facilities. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Travel Trailer.

All sites are pull through on gravel but the roads are paved. The campground is next to the Interstate but the staff will try to get you as far away as possible and there is a barrier fence. It was not a problem for us. There is very tight security with a gate that closes at 7pm. Security sits at the gate after it closes. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Travel Trailer.
