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

This was a very average/fair KOA. It was a little pricey in my opinion - for a gravel/dirt site and the bathrooms were not up to my liking. The shower stall was SMALL (I am not a huge person) and difficult to turn around in with the shower curtain right up against me as I showered. Nowhere to put shampoo, soap. The bathrooms need to be updated BAD! They were however, clean. The gentleman at check in was nice and helpful - and we got welcome cookies. There was a continental breakfast (very basic) included in the rate which was adequate. There were about 3 trains that passed by that night which might be a problem for some people. The campground was practically deserted which was nice. - Lynn and Linda

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

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

Nice park. Level gravel sites easy Big rig access. Slight drawback is closeness of railroad. Tracks very near, trains run all night. They do not blow their horns so it is only a minor inconvenience, did not interfere with my sleeping or watching TV. Easy access from I-40. - Bill1114

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

Great two day stop just off I-40 on our way back east. The sites were level and the electricity was stable. Wifi also was pretty good for an RV park. It was off season so the water was not available at the site but was at the office. Since we were only there 2 nights we didn't need it. Also as mentioned before you registered at the hotel office. There was no park attendant. No big deal, you just phoned and they picked you up. Great buffet meals at the casino for a reasonable price. We had the prime rib buffet on a Monday. It was great. We would use this as an overnight (or 2 night) rest stop again. - Shacky

Upon entering from I 40, only one sign as where to go. Not enough info. Parked and walked into main lobby. There on the desk top were instructions to park in the RV Park, call a number, and someone would come and pick you up for registration. How would you know this? $18/ nite, no map as to your site, no instruction to sign. Told no water at site. At the RV clubhouse, (closed for the winter) you could fill with freshwater. Cable was terrible. There were dog droppings everywhere. If you went into the casino and registered with the casino, you would get a discount card for the RV Park ($16.50). Ate at the restaurant, the best thing about stopping here. $13.50 with card for Buffet. (prime rib was delicious). Only stop here for one night and dinner!! All sites are pull-thru's. - Long Island Mac

Let's try again. Two days prior to arrival, I called to arrange a "Package"; one night at the "Full Hookup" RV park, 2 breakfast, 2 passes to Acoma Pueblo (Primary reason for visit), and a $16 voucher for lunch at the Pueblo. A great deal it would seem. I was told to pull into the park, select a site, and proceed to the hotel to register (The RV park is unmanned). I pulled in at dusk, proceeded to set up before it got dark, and found ALL the water and electric boxes were padlocked. So I ran all my electrical and water adjacent to the hookups, disconnected, and drove over to the hotel. At this time, the rude and unapologetic desk clerk informed me that the water was turned off for the winter, and I needed to give a $10 key deposit to unlock the power box. I think the sewer connection was locked too. Seriously? That would have been good to know before the reservation was made. In addition, the bathhouse is also closed. No water, and no bathhouse...In a FHU RV Park? Voicing my displeasure, I was informed that the truck stop across the street had showers. This RV park is a mere afterthought meant simply to lure gamblers who apparently have limited hygiene needs. While the park was neat, it was near deserted, with only 2 other units there. The entrance road, adjacent to the park is disgusting, with trash lining the roadway. Skip this place, unless you don't care, that they don't care. - usernametaken

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

A good campground for one or more nights. Campground has full hook-up sites that are either pull-thru or back-in. Sites fairly level & are gravel. Water pressure is good. Sites are satellite friendly. WiFi spotty, as I think it comes from the Casino. Speaking of the Casino, it is within walking distance. Campground offers a concrete walking path with gate to get to the casino. The area is beautiful & worth the drive down to the Acoma Pueblo. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. - Tinisu

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
