Nice small park reasonably priced. Very close to Interstate 25. There is a lot of road noise. This is a basic RV park. They do not have a playground, propane, or camp store. There are trees and shrubs between sites for some privacy. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is good for just an overnight stop. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.
Nice little park just south of Albuquerque. We did an overnight here. The park was very well-kept with wide gravel roads and sites so there is no problem getting in and out of your spot. Lots of trees and a small dog run which our pups enjoyed. Be aware that you have to come across 2 cattle guards on the way in. Just a little bumpy if you go slow. The sites were large and level and the folks in the office are very friendly. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly check-in, escort to site, and a level, shaded site - all for the Passport America rate of $14. Not a destination park due to it's location, but a great overnight stay. Site was long enough that both 40' motorhome and tow fit without a problem. No cable TV, but good Wi-Fi and clear view of TV satellites. Close to I-25, but road noise is tolerable. Good Verizon cell and data. Everything you'd want in a comfortable overnight stay. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

Check in was a breeze and the workampers were very friendly. Horse Motel had about 10 horses and we went and visited with them and fed them carrots. The owners were also very nice. Wi fi was very good. The campsite that we were on was not as wide as we had hoped for but it depends on which site you are in. Had some mail to mail, but they do not do that. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

A very nice little park. Sites are nicely separated by trees & shrubs. There is a small fenced dog walk area. Usually places so close to the expressway aren't so great, but this one is. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

This was our first snowbird campground and after 5 others it is still our favorite. The spaces were extremely well set up - wide roads in between, and all angled pullthroughs. Everyone had a view of mountains, instead of just the big RV beside you and between each site was a small island of shrubs or low trees.
The women's bathroom was spotless, although the shower room needed updating it was well laid out and again spotless
The owner, managers, and work campers were friendly and provided excellent service.
Every morning at 8:00 AM there was free coffee and it was a great place for an early rising husband to go socialize.
Rate cite was for a monthly rate.. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Shopping is a bit of a distance, come well stocked. However, people frequently announce when they are going and will pick up odds and ends.

One of the most friendly parks we've been in. Pulled in on a Friday night and were invited to their pot luck that started a half hour later. When we said we didn't have time to whip anything up, we were told we shouldn't be expected to since we just got there. Grilled pork chops, steak, and ribs with lots of extras. It was wonderful after a long day on the road. It might not be the most deluxe place I've stayed at but nice people can make up for a lot. Not as noisy as some make it sound. We had a great experience here. Rate was Passport. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Fifth Wheel.

After reading the previous reviews, I had to go back and check that we had stayed in the same place! Access is pretty good, except for the very rough cattle guard entry which will really rock your coach. There are signs posted that alert the traveler that there is "no propane", "no camp store", and "no dump station". Interior roads are dirt. Sites are dirt. This place is in the open so the dirt does blow. The sites are very narrow unless you get one on the end. They are so narrow (and divided by wooden posts and thorny vines) that we had to keep moving the coach to get the slides out. The sites are also very short. You will have an issue unless you get a site at the very back of the park so your toad can stick out in the open area. Dumpster is an old open trailer. The dog run is a 10x20 dirt area with 2' chicken wire around it. This place is adjacent to I-25 so there is lots of truck noise (but the aircraft flying overhead and the trains block out some of the truck noise!). The place is very dark at night, and all the signs promoting guns makes one wonder about the security. The horse stables and facilities are far better than the RV park. The saving grace for this place is the location. There are few RV parks on I-25 south of Albuquerque, and if you are coming east on US 60, there is nothing at all for hours. I will agree that the staff is friendly. The balloon festival was starting, so there were no discounts. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

The rate is Passport America. We enjoyed staying at this campground. Friendly staff. There are several dogs, but if someone rescued them that is all right with us. The sites are dirt. The Wi-Fi was free and worked great! We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Truck Camper.

This is a very friendly place to stay. We were there on a Friday night and when we checked in the staff invited us to take part in their weekly pot-luck and pool tournament. It was a lot of fun we can't remember when we've laughed so much. That night it was gals shooting pool against the guys...the funny part is that the guys had to shoot one handed! This is a pet friendly place. They have a fair number of rescue dogs who have found a home at Kiva. We especially liked the fact that all of their sites are pull-throughs and spacious. Even with all four of our slides out we could still park our car next to our coach side-by-side. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

We stopped here on our way to Albuquerque, just to ease our way back into a city after lots of state parks. This place is great in that its well run, nice office and sites. Being NM, the grounds are all dirt but sites are landscaped with trees and bushes, all pull through. We are self contained so I didn't use the bath or laundry. We have satellite and got regular network channels from ABQ on air. Their WiFi is good, but we also used our Verizon MiFi for extra access. Lots of areas for dogs to walk but some stickers around. Owner is a dog lover/rescuer, so some old dogs wander around, but I liked that part being a dog lover myself. We were in the first aisle close to the office, and it was very quiet with no highway noise. Ended up staying almost a week as we found good hiking and exploring after getting on the net. Rate was Passport America for unlimited nights, a great deal. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

Great place: very nice office staff. We pulled in late in the day, running from a storm ready to hit Santa Fe. Easy off freeway, and no freeway noise. Wonderful stop over. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

This is a very odd campground. For GPS purposes, note that it is in Bosque and not Bernardo. No cable. No grass but they have manged to grow some good-sized trees with drip irrigation. This is a very dusty part of the country. The interstate is very close and might bother some people. There are quite a few full-time residents who seem to be working in the area although it is hard to imagine what they are doing. The wi-fi does not work well. The barking dogs complained about in prior reviews are still barking but you don't have to stay near them. Kiva RV park is ok for a stopover - there are few RV parks in this area and this one is trying to be pleasant despite the dust and noise. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

This is a good park for an overnight stop. It is an easy on/off from the freeway. The sites are flat and graveled with some trees for shade. The park management is very helpful. The bathrooms and showers are clean, but old. They could use a little repair. The noise from the freeway is noticeable, but not a distraction for sleeping. Cable TV not available, but you can get the local TV channels from Albuquerque very well with an antenna. We have stayed here before and would would stop here again.
