1 Park near Kirtland AFB, New Mexico
Mar 2016 - $18.00
We stayed here for two weeks while visiting Albuquerque. The park is split into two sections, the older one, where we were was a mix of paved and gravel sites and a tree for shade at each. The newer sites are all gravel, with no shade and appeared very long and wide. You're not right on top of your neighbors but still close enough. They don't take reservations so be sure to call before you stop. The park is one of the more quiet military campgrounds we've stayed at, with only occasional air noise which was mostly from the local airport.
The hookups were fine as were laundry facilities. No cable, but no issues picking up over the air channels and WiFi was fine. Not a lot of grass to walk pets, but there is some just down the street at the temporary lodging area. There are walking paths (sidewalks) that take you all around the housing areas without worrying about traffic. The exchange and commissary are ok, but close earlier than we're used to, so if you want to hit the food court for dinner, you'll need to do so before 7:00 PM.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at Kirtland and will definitely return if in Albuquerque again. - pfogleboch
Jan 2016 - $18.00
Limited number of paved (concrete or asphalt) sites, mostly gravel without trees (not unexpected given New Mexico). WiFi appears to have been upgraded since January 2015 but still weak and spotty. Limited access (Eubank gate only open until Mid-night, Carlisle gate has metal barriers to entry so late arrival not recommended. Filled solid for Balloon Fiesta, however the rest of the year there seems to be ample sites available. - skypilot
Oct 2015 - $18.00
We stayed on the graveled portion. Very few concrete and most of those appear to be taken by full-timers (even though the rules state 14 day except for a few exceptions.) Regardless, the spots are fairly level and the grounds crew has worked to keep the weeds (stickers called goat-heads) at bay. That said, the only issue we had is that the wind blows through Tijeras Canyon with a vengeance; while we were there we experienced winds in excess of 30 mph yet you can go North two miles and it will be calm - the venturi effect of the mountains and the winds coming through the canyon. Other than that a superb campground and easy access to all areas of town. There are two ladies who man the office, one is exceptionally pleasant, the other is, well let me just say I much rather deal with the other one. However, both are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and will do their very best to help you. - skypilot
