8 Parks near Grants, New Mexico
Jul 2016 - $19.00
The park is old and it shows, but the power and cable were good. We had a good strong wifi connection and a pull through site. Sites are small and tight, but easy on and off from the expressway. Manager was friendly and helpful. Our site was long, gravel and as level as we needed. - weighit

Small park! Of the 25 spaces, 75% were long-term or permanent and if spaces 23 thru 25 were occupied, 20 thru 23 (pull-thru's) wouldn't be able to get out except by backing up.
Additionally, the park was on an access road to I-40 with the railroad crossing just passed that. The trains went thru regularly 24 hours/day and blew their whistle 3 to 7 times each time thru. Very noisy park.
No dog walking area within the park; had to walk on the side of the road or in the desert. 1 picnic table for 6 sites!
Advertised free cable: cable was very grainy.
Price included a $2.00 uncharge for 50AMP and also included tax and Good Sam discount. - daviputnam

The staff were very friendly and attended to your every concern. We stayed for a week and toured the area and the camp ground was the perfect fit. The cost was most reasonable.
The only thing that was some what of a bother was the trains passing thru sounding there horns. Most times with the air conditioner on you didn't hear them. That's the only reason for not giving the park a 10. - Shinn

This park has both pull through and back in sites; can accommodate big rigs as well; has tent camping. There are some full time residents, who probably work in the area. The bathrooms are coded and cleaned daily. They have both 30amp and 50amp with good voltage; water quality is good, with FHU. They also have Wifi and cable. Allow pets and have VERY small dog park (about useless), no playground or pool. Small meeting room by office with couch and TV. Laundry room with one washer and one dryer: all closed at 8 when office closes. The park is kind of trashy, I think because the owners do not live on site, nor is there a manager on site to oversee things. Nice and quiet but watch out for the rattlesnakes. - Kerch Family

Looking for park for electric to use ac. Full hookups here with pull through sites where slides can be used even though small sites with trees. Two of 3 rows have fresh gravel and picnic tables. 3rd row of permanent rigs are clean and neat. Did not feel road noise a problem. Starting to put in small store in office along with TV lounge. Nice place for over night. Would stop here again. - RVLuver

We knew this would be a very basic park, but just wanted a one-night stay near El Malpais NM - didn't care about amenities, cable, wifi, bathrooms, etc. BUT after we got settled in the spot that we were told to take when we made the reservation....discovered NO water coming from our spigot. Nobody in the office when we arrived at 4 pm - called the number and someone answered who was completely unhelpful. They had no idea why there was no water and had nobody who could come and diagnose the problem. Also dog poop everywhere. Only positive is easy on-off I-40, but that also means lots of road noise. - rvericksons

We stayed here a few years ago and this park is still nice. We had a level, gravel, pull through, FHU site with 24 channel cable TV. This describes most of the sites in the park. There are also about 10 tent sites, a few W&E only sites, and 3 cabins. Most of the RV sites appear to be satellite friendly. Because of all the non-sewer sites, the bath and shower facilities are not adequate. I think the laundry was 6 machines and a bit expensive because it took 2 dryer cycles to dry a load. This KOA does not have the typical Recreational facilities. There is no pool of playground. There is a short walking path through an adjacent lava field. The WIFI worked OK until it got dark when everybody (all the RV sites were taken) in the park got on the internet. From looking at the menu, I thought the dinner items were a bit expensive. There is a free continental breakfast in the morning. I saw no sign of recycling. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. For me, the cost was the big negative. - Jerry S

Easy to find off I-40. Friendly staff. Small park overall but very level everywhere. All sites are pull thru. Hot meals and continental breakfast available & cookies at checkin! Only issue are the trains late at night. A bit pricey for an all gravel park. But great for an overnight or two. - DMcKitt

Very friendly hosts, clean facilities, wide pull-throughs. A good dinner was delivered to our RV for a reasonable additional charge. Close to I-40, but far enough away to be relatively quiet. Somewhat exposed to the wind. More than adequate as a brief respite from the road. - Gordon52

A really nice FREE campground. Rated it excellent because it's free and the nice amenities for a government campground. Facilities seem very new - picnic shelters, fire pits, grills. There are restrooms and trash receptacles. Expansive views. Very quiet. Verizon LTE (mostly - goes in and out). Would have no problem getting TV sat reception (we didn't use our tailgater but clear view of sky). Great for solar panels too.
Sites vary in size - some pull-throughs. Most sites not very level.
Road in is a little rough. There is one dip near start of road that you could get hung up on if pulling travel trailer. we pull a utility trailer behind truck camper - we raised truck up on airbags and had 1' clearance thru the dip. There was one fifth wheel in campground who obviously made it in fine. Highly recommended for a night or two to visit El Malpais. - chinookgeo

Small, first come first serve Bureau of Land Management (BLM) CG. Convenient to explore this fascinating region of NM. Recently renovated with shade structures and grills. Some nice views. Vault toilets only. No water or dump, if I recall. Quiet. Clean. Would not bring a 40 ft A in here, can be tight. - rvrover63

A free BLM campground about 10.8 miles S from I-40 exit# 89. Once you pass the well marked "Sandstone Bluffs Overlook" look for the yellow cattle guard on the left and turn in there. There is a small sign marking the CG. Nice new concrete vault toilets and newly upgraded picnic tables with very nice shade covers. Some sites have good view to the west over the lava beds. There is a steep dip about 50 yards from the entrance which long rigs (40') or rigs with long overhangs (12' or more) behind the rear wheels may scrape entering & leaving. No water, elect or sewer. Good quiet place to stop overnight or camp while exploring "El Malpais Nat. Conservation Area". - A-S_Travels

This RV park is just off the interstate and is a convenient place to stay for a night or two when traveling. The lots are level, with one tree on most lots. There is a railroad track nearby, so trains at night are a factor, but not loud enough to prevent us from sleeping. The hookups are in good shape, reasonably new and maintained ---- they work properly. We have stayed here once or twice a year, and certainly would stop here again. - hoppytoad

This is a really nice park for the price. The staff is friendly as well as your fellow campers. Our site was gravel but very level. We would have stayed longer if we hadn't had previous arrangements. Perfect for overnight! You do not have picnic tables but there is a communityone in the shade. - Nini03

$220 a month plus electric at 13 cents per kWh! Open all year. I am shocked at these low prices! It is not a 5 star park but it is very nice. Nice level gravel lots, 30 & 50 amp service, sewage and water and over 50 cable channel and great Wi-Fi! Exit 79 on interstate 40 and just follow the signs for a few hundred yards. There are 25 restaurants within 5 miles of this park. Every lot has a pine tree that does not block satellite signals. Most lots are pull-through. I am not affiliated with this park and just passing it on as an unbelievable bargain. - Ahrmless

Park has easy pull through access for almost any length RV. No shade but very well organized with all services working well. Restroom/showers are spotless and like new. Walking path to casino has solar lighting. No registration at the office building so you have to go all the way back to the casino. Make sure to fill out the membership card ahead of time to get the $16 rate, otherwise $22 like we paid. Casino food OK but you may want to disconnect and drive to the restaurant depending on your condition. No other food close. and we walked two dogs on leash without any problem. Interstate noise not bad as you are a quarter mile or more away. Sites are nice and level. Excellent for overnight and location for Acoma exploration. Good to pick a site close to the showers/rest rooms as the sites at the far end require about a two minute walk. Again, this depends on your condition and the weather.
Cable TV with so-so reception and images. Free wi-fi with average speed but occupancy was very light. - Pierce

This is a great place to stop for a night or two when travelling across New Mexico. The service here is excellent. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Watch out if you are in the casino at shift change, though. Everything stops while one shift closes out and the new shift takes over. That is not a good time to need a ride to/from the casino. Otherwise, the service is very prompt. The sites are spacious and there is plenty of room for parking a vehicle and trailer. The food in the casino wasn't too great on Asian buffet night, but the items ordered from the menu looked good. - Bobbi1948

We stayed here once before and the main thing that has changed is that you must check in at the hotel. This is always a pain. The RV park building that used to have a check in desk still has the desk but it was not manned when we were there. This building also contains a nice lounge with a large screen TV and the bathrooms and showers. They were clean and adequate for a park with all FHU sites. The roads in the park are asphalt/gravel and all the sites are pull though with long (maybe 60-70'), 12' wide gravel pads. There are 3 rows of sites and they are separated by a large (about 60'X20'), curbed gravel filled island that contains the hook ups. The cable TV is about 25 channels and the listing in the check in area does not match the channels. There are no trees of any size, so it appears that all sites are satellite friendly. Our site in the middle row was reasonably level and the others looked level. There were only about a dozen sites taken the night we were here so the Wi-Fi was pretty good. We were disconnected a couple time but could usually get back on within minutes. I seem to remember there being at least one washer and dryer in the RV park building but that is no longer the case. They have built a laundromat over at the travel center/gas station. It is a long walk or a short drive. Don't plan on doing laundry here - just the washers were $3.75! I saw no sign of any recycling. There are no recreational or other facilities/amenities in the RV park. Evidently, you can use the casino hotel's pool and some other facilities there. If all you want is a cheap FHU site with OK cable TV and Wi-Fi, this is a good overnight stop. - Jerry S

Very disappointed, no showers available, they are building a new building. Water level is very low. Enjoyed watching the wild horses. - nanaontheroad

We drove here expecting to stay, but then after driving around the only loop with electric, we decided it was too tight. Also, to fill up with water in a Rig our size was going to be tricky. We were traveling in a 30 ft 5th wheel. The drive in was beautiful but very steep in places. The campsites were not well-groomed. This campground would be much better suited for smaller campers. - Lula1943

Pleasant but not much reason to stay more than one night. Do not go south at Thoreau unless you want primitive camping. Take the exit at Prewitt which will take you to the campground with electric and water. Gate locked at 9pm in October and 6pm in November. You can still get out but can't get in. Lake very low. - fander

This is basically a gravel parking lot with FHU. Has about 5 pull thru and maybe 12 back-in sites. No cable but we picked up several channels with our antenna. Sites are close together but room for your slides, not quite level and fairly long. Small dog park that is also all rocks. This is a great place for overnight, especially for $11.36 ! We'll stay here again if in the area. - travelswithpuppies

After a long day on the road, this was a nice find. It cost only $11 + change for one night. We had a level pull-thru on dirt and gravel with good hook-ups. As others have said the TV and wi-fi are fine. Yes, the sites are close and there are only 5 pull-thrus. The employees are very friendly. We walked down the bike trail towards the school and had wonderful views all the way. Then we treated ourselves to a DQ across the street. Store, gas, car and truck products sold here. We would definitely stay here again as we pass through. - swike

This place is a great deal for an overnighter. It's only $11 and change with the tax for a FHU spot. Yes, it's basically just a parking lot with no amenities and with rigs in a line and pretty close together but what do you want for that price! The utilities worked fine and even the wi-fi worked ok plus there was Verizon service. The casino is just a short walk across the parking lot and the diner there has decent food for a good price. There is also a grocery store next door. Not a huge selection, but a good choice of the basics, and a full travel center across the street with gas, convenience store, DQ etc. I will absolutely stay there again if I'm in the area. - Pdxjoanne
