Typical KOA, overpriced, with sites crowded into every available inch. Site was okay, almost level, that jacks took care of. Had an escort to the site which is a nice touch. Plenty of cable channels and open view for satellite. Wi-fi worked well albeit a little slow at peak times. All utilities good and easily accessible. Easy access to I-25 but enough away so no road noise. We try to avoid KOA's but would stay here again if in the area. Of course, since close to large city, Verizon signal was strong. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed there during the Balloon Fiesta. We didn't know we would were visiting during huge busy time. We were lucky to get an RV spot at all. Shoe-horned into the park. Spaces were very tight. Not the best neighborhood. But convenient to I-25 and US 550. Park was clean and neighbors respectful of space. Laundry clean and reasonably priced third morning there the balloons flew over us to land just north of the park. Very cool. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place to stay whether over night or for a stay and visit at nearby Albuquerque. Great staff, friendly and helpful. We were here for the balloon festival for three nights. We were led to our site (30 amp electric, water, and no sewer) which was nice and roomy providing afternoon shade with a picnic table outside and artificial turf. Some of the roads to our site were a bit narrow with some tight turns. We noticed there was a tree branch rubbing the top of our RV thinking once we left they would take care of it. But amazing, it took a few minutes and they were there pruning the limb! Now that's great service! We definitely would come back here. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our second stay here. We stayed overnight this trip. Sites are mostly pull-through with some back-in sites too. Our site was level, spacious with picnic table. Staff are friendly, there is a pool, laundry and even a brewery next door. Lots of folks were using this as a base for Balloon Fiesta. Would stay here again. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet, well-managed park with level sites, clean bathrooms, good electricity, cable and Wi-Fi. There are few trees and the patios have artificial turf but this is customary in high-desert country. We found one fault: the dump station is immediately adjacent to the children's playground - immediately adjacent (on the fence line); AND the dump station is slightly uphill so spilled fluids might run or be washed into the playground. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Not only is the Kaktus Brewing Company next door, there is a gate in the fence between the KOA and the brewery! (Look for the "BEER" sign and follow the arrows around the back of the brewery.) Food at the brewery was excellent: salads and sandwiches in addition to pizza and customary bar food. The brewery has two outdoor patios, both are comfortable.

Much upgraded from the last time we stayed. Each site has a small AstroTurf lawn with a picnic table. Hook-ups were conveniently placed. Sites were nicely spaced and level. We felt as though we had plenty of privacy. Pool. Dog walk. Folks at the front desk were very nice & helpful. Close to the interstate but quiet. We just stayed overnight but this is very good for more time if you are doing things in the area. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The location is good, close to the highway with limited noise. The roads inside the park are a bit tight for a larger rig. We drive a 44 foot motorhome with a toad and there were several turns that were quite tight. To make it worse, there are large rocks on the roads that make the turns tighter. Otherwise, it was a good overnight stay. Gravel roads and sites, but no problems leveling up. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Our rate reflects KOA, plus weekly discount. We stayed for two weeks and even though the sites were relatively close together, the tree on our site made it feel more private. There was a little patch of artificial grass that was nicer than the typical gravel campgrounds in the southwest. There was a nice pool with a convertible overnight cover that, when raised off the pool in the morning, shaded it during the day. We are full-time so this was a place to catch up on orders and mail delivery. The office was very good at letting us know when packages arrived. One drawback was the road noise since the highway was relatively close. However, the closeness of the highway made it easy to get anywhere within the area. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Sandia Peak Tramway was approximately 14 miles from the campground. We enjoyed the ride as well as the hiking trails at the top. We were in the area long enough to explore and found the "Musical Highway" east of Albuquerque on Route 333 (part of the old Route 66 system) between mile markers 4 and 5, near exit 170.

There were nice shade trees, pool and basketball hoop. Walking distance to a brewery. The owners work alot keeping the place clean. The only complaint I have is that it is very tight driving our 26 ft. trailer and truck on the roads through the park. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Rate includes tax; KOA discount. This is an older park but kept very nice. Owner was friendly and helpful with local information. Our site was quite level with a good base of gravel. Sites are rather close. One novelty about the park is a walkway directly from the park to a local brewery! We didn't go, but it seems to a hit with others. There is a nice fenced pet area so they can go off lead. But no grass! If in the area, we would stay here again. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Motorhome.

Excellent campground. Easy on and off to I-25. Friendly staff. We were guided to our campsite and assisted in parking. We only stayed one night, but this campground would be a good multi-day place to stay when visiting the area. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We especially liked the Pizza restaurant (with local Kactus beer) that is just a walk through a gate from the park, and recommend the pepperoni pizzas.

I'm not exactly sure why people are rating this KOA so high. It may be the price? It was dusty, and instead of putting better gravel down, the maintenance people used a blower to blow the dust off the road, and into our campsite (while we were at the site too!). There are several ridiculous patches of grass with rules about no dogs, but grass is nonsense in this environment, and I didn't see anyone use the area. The laundry room was a joke, with very few washers and dryers. After running a wash load, some of my laundry wasn't even wet!! The owners should pay more attention to details which makes the guests visit better, and less attention to their lawn, and keeping dust off the road. One of the maintenance guys had no trouble watching everyone who came in (including me) and flagging them down for going "too fast". If it was so fast, he sure didn't have any trouble keeping up with me (so apparently, it is okay for him to go that fast). There is a brewery next door, but it was so dusty, my husband and I coughed all night. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Travel Trailer.
