2 Parks near Gallup, New Mexico
Aug 2016 - $32.00
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

We would like to rate this park higher as it is very clean and tidy and excellent restrooms/showers but have to mark down for charging extra for cable TV and we asked for a site with no trees, we are in the desert so not many of course and what did we get 3 trees. We changed site but still had one tree. The trees are very low and scratch the sides of the RV. There are many open sites. Easy access fro I-40 but no highway noise. Some distant railroad noise but not a problem. - Harris England

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

We found this city park during our trip to AZ for the winter. We usually stay overnight at Walmarts, but this park looked decent and was easy access from I40. What a great find (and WAY better than a Walmart parking lot????). We were going to just spend one night, but the hiking looked too good to pass up, so we stayed an extra day. Beautiful hiking trail amongst the red rock hills, very peaceful and quiet. Some of the trail is close to an edge with a significant drop off, so use caution if hiking with dogs (or children). The park itself used to be a state park but now is run by the city of Gallup. A city employee comes by every evening to collect the fees. Not that we wanted to use the bathrooms in the park, but they were locked and we were not given a key. Sites are decently flat, but all sand, as is the rest of the park. Not a problem during our stay, but if windy or raining, it could cause problems. Picknik table with concrete pad underneath and a grill/fire pit at most sites. Decent, quiet park if you need a place to stay in the area. - Jerry and Betsy
