6 Parks near Bernardo, New Mexico

Good sites with good shade considering the desert environment. Utilities were good although the water pressure could vary. Manager and work campers are nice and conscientious about keeping the park in very good condition. Wifi was troublesome. It was on and off at our site although the community building could be used in a pinch. This is an excellent base camp for natural and historic sites. Four wildlife refuges within a reasonable drive, Salinas Mission sites about an hour, and you can get the train in Belen for a trip to Albuquerque or Santa Fe. I-25 follows the Rio Grande River as did El Camino Real the historic Spanish road.
Signage in an out of the community building advocates a pro-firearms agenda. We saw no one carrying a firearm, however, in our month at Kiva.
The rate shown is daily based on monthly rate. Electricity was $90 for the month that had daily highs in the upper 90s. Our unit ran 6-8 hours per day. - gumper

You must pay by cash or check. No-alcohol policy. They don't allow use of your washer/dryer and must use their laundry. Site was large and level, all gravel. Don't expect high water pressure. Easy access to I-25 and ask for a spot up front as the I-25 is noisy. Must go 17 plus miles for fuel, grocery, and sites of interest. Good overnight stay. - Jimmy Swager

We paid $22 with AAA. Passport America would have been $14. All sites are full hook ups. Numerous permanent residents but their rigs were neat and in good condition. Park is next to I-25 but the noise didn't bother us with a fan running. Nice clean park with long level pull-through sites.
Very large bathroom. Women's bathroom had one large shower and men's had two smaller ones. Shower heads were a bit low but plenty of hot water. Paper towels and a portable heater in the bathrooms.
A good spot for an overnight stop. We will stay here again. - Lost

Easy on and off I-25. Military discount given. Two different entry signs so there was a little confusion. Great hosts and campers...invited us to partake of their Easter potluck. Mostly long-term sites. Our pull-thru was fine and long enough for the coach, trailer w/Can-Am, and a Jeep. Utilities worked well. Would stay again. - CanDo

This poor park. It looks like it was a very nice park but recently the new office and lodge buildings and most of the RV park are for sale. There are 10-12 pull though sites still in use across a private driveway from the former lodge. There is no onsite staff but a drop box is located in site #1. The sites are not maintained but have a good gravel base and the hookups are in good condition and appear to be fairly new. We over nighted here since the WM up the road is NOP. Next time we would have gone up the highway to another park but were tired and needed to stop. I hope that someone purchases this park and gets it back in shape. It would be a nice setup with beautiful views of the valley. - gregd

Owners are friendly, sites are relatively level but most of the gravel is gone so parking areas are very dusty. In addition, a dirt road goes through the west side of the park to a business and private residences, creating dust and noise. The 50amp breakers at the site we picked were bad. The owner advised us the previous two guests had reported the same thing. We were given the option to connect to the site next to us, or pack up and move to a different site. Six days later the breakers still had not been replaced. Their rates continue to increase, but haven't been updated on their website since 2008. Unfortunately it's the only park in town. - Westside

Price reflects the monthly rate, electricity was charged separately. The park was perfect for us, we needed a place to stay for a few weeks while visiting Albuquerque. The park sits up on the hill just west of the freeway. There are great views of the surrounding mountains. There is surprisingly little noise despite proximity to the freeway. There were full hookups, good water pressure and strong wifi. This is a no-frills campground, but we were not in need of resort amenities. There are no laundry or bathroom facilities. This is a small park with 10 spots, most are long term, with a few spots set aside for shorter stays. This is essentially an open gravel lot so pulling in and out with a larger rig is easy. The owners were friendly and attentive. We were pleased with the park and would stay here again. - BluegrassTravelers

This small, clean RV park is fine for a stay while visiting the area. Road and sites are gravel, level, and everything worked well. You should be fully self-contained; no restrooms or showers. It is a quiet location, with easy on off the freeway access. - DiplomatTraveler

My husband is easily irritated at RV parks with poor and unclean facilities. He could not stop singing the praises of this tiny spot. The gravel was smooth and perfectly level. The place was quiet, friendly, and spotless. I swear he and the owner were best friends in ten minutes. The RV site is in a perfect place for easy in and out from the highway. Best for overnight as it is not set up for activities and is thirty miles from a big city, Alburquerque. - glowingheart

This is NOT a state park in spite of the listing. It is owned and run by the Belen Schools. We stayed for a week and were the only campers. A funny park with lots of potential but one big problem. Electricity is all screwed up, bad grounding with voltage fluctuating from 80V to 120V. I was afraid to run electric motors or sensitive equipment. No showers. Bathrooms clean enough but no lights at night. Maintenance person was unconcerned but very friendly. Phone is not always answered and no recorder. No BW dump but free one is located in Belen. Very quiet. Located on the west bank of the Rio Grande. Nature walk through the bosque. Fishing in the irrigation ditches. Farm land surrounding. Few miles from town. Payment is cash only and on honor system. - NM Full Timer

This is a MH park, thus you are surrounded by Mobile Homes. The sites are large and level, the owner/manager is very nice. This is just off of Hwy 47, 2 miles south of all the shopping you could ask for. Only 25 miles south of Albuquerque. I didn't put in the nightly rate because I'm paying $275.00 + electric per month. 50 amp sites have to be developed by owner, so far we are the first to find this park. Neighbors are very nice. - Ingsky

16 developed sites with picnic tables (some with lean-to), fire ring, BBQ grill, half with power. Some can be reserved (ReserveAmerica with service charges). About 30 undeveloped and group sites. Staff keeps CG very clean. Nicely maintained garden outside office with bird feeders. Great cell service, no WiFi. One bathroom / office building has M&F sides with flush toilets, cold water sinks. Can be overcrowded with group camping. Well-marked & maintained hiking trails around CG, with gate access to Cibola Natl Forest hiking trails. Very busy weekends & holidays.
NM state annual park pass available, then campsites are free, electric $4.00 / night.
Hot & dry conditions during July 2016, Stage 2 Fire Restrictions due to continued drought & nearby Dog Head fire. - dave3114

This park just reopened this year after a 4 year shutdown due to forest fires. Loop road and site access is tight but manageable. 7500 feet in elevation makes for a pleasurable summer stay. About 4 miles of hiking trails in the campground with access to the National Forest backing the area.
Great staff, ensured garbage was dumped several times a day. Bathroom facilities maintained very clean. Sites were cleaned and raked after each rig left.
Site layout is strange. Our site had the fire ring behind the unit and the picnic table at the front drivers side.
No water or sewer at sites. Potable water fill station and dump station located at park entrance. I had good quality power on a 50 amp site.
Weekend traffic was busy, due to a very large church group in the group shelter area for the weekend. - RE:Todd
