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 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

Nice large park, seems fairly new as the trees are not very large, but someday will have good shade. Spaces are large and friendly staff. Very reasonable price. - DRBurns

Easy access from the interstate. Follow parking signs and check in inside the hotel. Get Players Card inside the casino prior to registering to receive the $16.50 rate. Level angled pull through sites. Free WIFI. We camped here in a 40 foot motor home. - Mustcamp

As others have suggested, this park makes a nice stopover or convenient place to camp while visiting Acoma Pueblo. Sites are long and level w/FHU, including 50 amp service. Truck stop, casino and restaurant are close by. A great value. Complimentary WiFi and clear skies for satellite. Though right off I40, the park was very quiet. - Phaeton40AH

Casino RV park. Excellent layout and good utilities but no dog park. Beware- Burrs will penetrate tennis shoes. Walk dogs on gravel only. Casino Buffet is really bad. Need to check-in at casino to get keys to padlocked utilities and return keys to casino when leaving. Great for overnight stay if you don't have dogs and aren't hungry. - countrycoach99

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

We only stayed here for one night and did not go to the lake but this seemed like a gem of a place for what we expected. It is off the beaten path and the high elevation keeps it nice and cool at night. The sites are not very level and there is little grass. There is power available for only the extra four bucks. We were shocked that the flush bathrooms were closed at 9p and did not open until 7a. I couldn't find an alternative bathroom so we just had to hold things in until the morning. I am not sure why they do this. Also, the water looks terrible...not sure if it is iron or what but the water is brown and not even useable to make coffee. Also, the local homes and trailers near the entrance look scary with trash all over the place. We were happy that they closed the gates at 9p as it provided isolation and protection from them. Overall the experience was good however. - CaliDiscGolf

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

Parking lot with hookups. Inexpensive and convenient to I40. Next to Casino and grocery store. Across the street from inexpensive gas and diary queen. Staff was always helpful. We would stay here again. - RV Gypsy
Jul 2016 - $11.00
We stayed here 6 nights. You can't beat the price with full hookups and free WiFi. It all gravel and dirt. Absolutely no grass so if you have pets (which we do) it wasn't fun to walk her. But the market next door is huge and reasonable. Casino was fun and food was very reasonable and good. Gas and dairy Queen all there too. Cheapest diesel so far in new mexico on rt 40. - New yorker
