Forget all the standard KOA Komplaints, this park is so different we have changed our travel plans to come back through after visiting family in AZ.
This is not a A-Frame KOA, don't know if that makes it old or new, but it is fresh and pleasant starting at check-in. Staff was very nice, couldn't do enough for us. Even a treat for our dog and free cookies for us. The camp store was well equipped with rv supplies as well as some groceries and souvenirs. Very attractive and interesting store.
All sites are pull-through of varying length, they will try to match you.
Utilities were good and easy hook-up. All roads and sites were gravel well packed and level. The sites are near but not terribly close. Wi-Fi was good, but slowed when the park filled. Cable tv was great. This is a small park with some trees and many plantings among rock landscaping. This area is literally high-and-dry. The park is attractive in a desert way, as is the area around it. The views of the hills surrounding Grants is really breathtaking.
There is an off leash dog enclosure, a long and very interesting walking path out away from the park, also tent sites, kabins, and a playground.
Well lit at night and coffee and donuts in the morning.
Bathrooms are dated but very adequate. They were small but clean and comfortable. All facilities in this park are neat as a pin cared for by a doting staff.
We liked this KOA very much maybe our favorite. We don't usually look for KOA's but this one is different. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Did you know that there were volcanoes in New Mexico? Grants is built on lava flows. Huge flows of black lava surround the KOA. The park staff will point out the dead volcanoes and caldera in the distance. This is all very cool bring your camera.

This is a gravel park typical of Southwest. the sites are long somewhat close but no problem with slides. Easy in and out for big rigs. They will deliver dinner to your site, we did and it was excellent and very reasonable. It is a good park for overnight and viewing the area. We would stay again. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good for an overnight stop. Long, level, gravel pull through with easily accessible utilities. Very easy and friendly check in. Good cable TV. Can be a little dusty and some train noise but only minor nuisances. They offer a complimentary continental breakfast and a cooked meal service, delivered to your site for nominal charges. As usual for KOAs, sites are narrow, too close, with no sitting space, and overpriced, but we would stay again. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

The staff was very well informed about the area and El Malpais National Monument. Enjoyed our visit there because of information received. No noise at this park, beautiful view of Mt. Taylor with snow. The park was quiet - many overnighters but spaced well. Dog walking area. Restrooms and showers very clean. Continental breakfast offered and evening meals can be ordered and delivered to your site, which we thought was quite unique. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have traveled extensively, initially in a motor home, full time, for nine years and now in a 20' travel trailer just in summers. We generally find KOAs to be over priced and not as consistent as we would like. However, this park is the best we have stayed in, bar none. We started off with a pleasant surprise when they gave us a "small rig discount." A reasonable discount, but the first time we have experienced it at a KOA. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They offered dinners you could order, made on site in a commercial kitchen and delivered to your rig. Our last experience was a very nice continental breakfast served daily at no charge! Even though we didn't use the bathrooms, we did use the laundry and it was clean and functional. Overall, a very pleasant experience. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is an older KOA. Management is great. Showers and Restrooms are small and old but very clean. We didn't use the meals option but it is a good perk since there aren't many choices in Grants for anything but fast food. This is definitely an overnight stop. It does have train noise--lots of trains. My low rating is based on the price--a gravel parking lot next to a rodeo arena and near a railroad track. No way would I stay there again. The managers have done their very best with it but it is not. and never will be. worth $47 a night. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet despite being near the freeway and the railroad tracks. Dinner delivered to campsite was wonderful, and the pie was to die for. Nice folks, wonderful accommodations. They did their best to space out the campers, no one next to us during the entire stay. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Shows "Pride of ownership". Clean, safe, friendly and a fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookie upon our arrival. Their flyer with the rules are clever and entertaining. For a fee, they will bring a home cooked meals to your camp site. Free continental breakfast in the morning. Their service is why they received a President's Award and a Founder's Award 2014.

We stayed here for one night and would go back. The owners went out of their way to be welcoming and friendly. After check-in we got homemade cookies. We had homemade pizza delivered to our site. There was also a complimentary breakfast. The Wi-Fi was marginal, which is the norm it seems. We were in site 36, a long pull-through, which easily accommodated us. The picnic tables looked freshly painted. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Spent an overnight here, and that is about all you would want to spend here. All gravel sites and they are fairly narrow. Roads to get to the sites are also narrow. Not sure I would call this big rig friendly. If it rains, you will have mud. The park is adjacent to some horse stalls/corrals, and the smell can be overpowering if the wind is coming from that direction. The flies are all over the place, most likely from the horses. No pool or spa. There is a small play area for children, but that is right next to the horses. Some train noise north of the park. The people are friendly, and they have cooked meals available that you can order and have delivered to your site. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Not to bad of a place. All gravel, few trees no grass. Very nice people at check-in. Continental breakfast. Home cooked meals delivered to your door at a reasonable price. Wi-Fi was OK. Restrooms/showers OK. This place would work for an overnight stop. Price too high for what they offer. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

The staff at this park went out of the way to make us feel welcome. Free breakfast and you can order dinner and have it delivered to your site. The big surprise was the lava fields in the area. My wife and I are outdoors people and there were many scenic views and trails in the area. Also neat to drive on Historic RT 66 in Grants. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I rated this campground a 6 only because of the price. It is in no way worth $48.75 a night. Don't even consider using one of your discounts, KOA only accepted. Other than price, the campground gets a 10 in all categories. The folks are nice and will deliver a home cooked meal to your site, for only $12 to $18 a plate. Great homemade pie $4.95 a piece. The prices may have been okay for Miami Beach, but Grant New Mexico?? We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
