2 Parks near Churchrock, New Mexico
Sep 2016 - $20.00
This is a beautiful, quiet campground. At $20 E & W, I think it's a good deal. We didn't bother going over to the museum to pay, just picked a spot and waited for the attendant to come get our payment. We understood from reading the prior reviews that that probably meant we wouldn't get a key for the restrooms, but we didn't need them. The setup is slightly confusing, but no big deal. It is all sand and since it had rained heavily the prior day there were some soft areas and some puddles but not a big deal. Plan accordingly. The utilities were well placed and worked properly. The site only required very slight leveling, and there are garbage pails about every two or three sites which I really appreciated. Verizon signal was very strong. We might even stay an extra night and would certainly stay again. - Pdxjoanne

From what we understand, this is a "Lions-Club" sponsored City Park, on property owned by the Navajo tribe. Museum, rodeo arena, horse stalls, picnic areas, hiking trails, "main" and "west" campgrounds; we were in the main campground. Pretty much open area, with some cottonwood and mesquite trees - some sites pretty shady. All areas are dirt, some gravel, some grass, most internal roads paved; about 112-115 sites. Power and water were both good; hardware in good repair. Wish we'd had more time, as there were a couple trails we would have liked to hike. Good value - nice park, for overnite. Hookup placement caused a bit of confusion - fortunately not too full this nite. Park not designed by RV-savvy designer. Watch for gopher holes. - jtids

First, how to pay for a site here. If you go to the office inside the museum Mon-Fri. 8-4 you can pay with cash, check, or credit card and get a key to the bathrooms/ showers. After hours or weekends: a employee will come around during the evening and you can pay them with cash or check, I don't think they have the bathroom keys.
Second, picking a site. They have 2 main areas for camping. (Area 1) One is in area that has trees scattered about that offer some shade. (Area 2) The other one is a large parking lot without a lick of shade. Area 2 looks like it gets used for big events like rodeos and is mainly overflow.
Area 1 is close to an immense wall of Red Sandstone and has some shade. The thing about Area 1 is the sites are not well defined so campers tend to park their rv's any way they want, which leads to a lot of confusion as to where exactly the sites are. The sites are not all that level but should be in the range of most leveling systems.
If you get a key to the bathrooms you will find them clean and have showers with good pressure and plenty of hot water. The area is pretty quiet but you can hear the trains running up and down the main line of the BNSF all day and night long. On the plus side, they are not blowing their horns. There are a couple of nice hikes up in the red rock canyons behind the campground that are way beyond well marked and while not impossible to get lost, you'd have to work at it. Verizion MiFi works great. We spent several days here and will stop by again if in the area. - pumper9x9

This is a pretty large park and according to the staff, has vacancies for drive-ins most of the time, but when we were there it was the beginning of the hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque and there also seemed to be an Airstream rally going on, so the park was full.We had a pull-through for our 45 ft motorhome and toad at the back of the park. Showers and restrooms were close by, however. WiFi worked better than most places, even with a full park. Roads are large enough to maneuver big rigs. Would definitely stay here again. - dfwcantor

All sites are gravel, roads are paved. A standard site is 30 amp with no cable. 50 amp and cable are each $2 extra. Antenna TV gets all local networks. WiFi is OK, but doesn't stay connected. There is BBQ dinner available each evening, at a decent price. All in all, an OK park. - ta96silver

This is a very well kept park. We stayed 2 nites and found it convenient and comfortable. We had a pull thru site that was level with good utilities. Verizon air card and cell worked well. Although we didn't use the pool, it looked very inviting and the area around the office was very well kept. It was nice to have a good size dog park near our site. They served a BBQ dinner and that was also very good and reasonably priced. The park was easy to navigate and an easy drive from I-40. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. - Danni
