Very nice staff. Fresh cookies on arrival. Entire place is level. Easy to maneuver big rig in park, site large. Wi-Fi worked well. Food service available - we ordered turkey dinners which were delivered to our coach hot. Would stay here again. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our best experience with a KOA. The park is easy to find and the staff that checked us in did an excellent job. They were quick, but very thorough, ensuring we were aware of all the things the park has to offer as well as what to see and do in the area. The gift shop has an extraordinary selection of quality t-shirts and other souvenirs. The park is not very big, so we were sent on our way to our site but they checked on us within 30 minutes to ensure we weren't having any difficulties setting up. Another staffer stopped by an hour or so later to ensure we were settled in well. The site was long, albeit a little narrow as seems to be the norm with a KOA. They do a very good job of trying to leave a site vacant between units if it is possible. The views of the mountains from the park are amazing, and the park, like Grants, is surrounded by lava fields. A real perk for us was seeing a covey of quail marching through the park as well as a nest of some type of bird in the tree next to our coach. The piece-de-resistance is the food. They have a nicely diverse menu of meals that are cooked at the park and delivered to your coach at the time you select. That is a first for us, and the food was wonderful. Every staff member we encountered during our stay actually made us feel welcome and wanted, which doesn't occur at all parks. The park is very clean and well-manicured - as much as you can manicure a desert environment. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

As stated above - take advantage of the fantastic meal that will be delivered to your RV at your specified time. Eat in the comfort of your rig without having to clean up afterwards. We didn't have time to stay an extra day or two, but there is much to do and see in the area and this is the place to R.O.N.

I have a small a-frame and asked to use a pull-through since I've just started rv'ing. Not a problem. Sites were gravel and level. Not far off I-40, but quiet, however railroad tracks are close by and about three trains came through during the night. Bathrooms were nice and clean. There is no pool. I would stay here again, but ask for a spot a little farther back to cut down on the train noise. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Only stayed one night. Arrived just before 5, with rain and sleet, 30 degrees. Site was easy to access, level, and long enough we did not have to unhook. Park and sites were gravel but even with rain, no drainage issues. Came to our site to make sure no issues with hookup. Management had previous restaurant experience and provided and onsite home cooking delivered to your camper door! What a treat especially during our arrival time. Provided a free continental breakfast in the office the next morning. Would stay here again if passing through the area. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice enough KOA with very friendly staff. Just a flat gravel lot with 2 or 3 small trees. Level pull through full hook up 50 amp gravel sites. Pretty dusty. Picnic Tables but no fires allowed. Well stocked store and free continental breakfast. Also will delivered home cooked meals to your RV. Wifi and cable good. Would stay again. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Too expensive for what you get. I keep coming back because I like the people. Grounds are clean & well-maintained but small trees = no shade. Wifi/Internet are fast & clean until the place fills up, then it lags a bit. Don't try to find it at night: both the sign and the intersection where you're supposed to turn off the state highway are unlit: very difficult to find after dark in a car when you know where it is; probably impossible in an RV if it's your first time there. They offer supper cooked onsite and delivered to your door at prices comparable to restaurants; valuable for weary travellers. Large, ample pet areas with rabbits running around to tempt your dog. No highway/freeway noise. I would stay here again if I could afford it, but probably won't be able to. We camped at Grants / Cibola Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

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.
