The camp host after hours was by far the best person to deal with at this facility. She had superb customer skills. The FAMCAMP itself is okay at best, and could use some serious updating and maintenance. The newer sites are poorly designed--get broadside winds. Signage is poor and the park is not set up well for check-in. Trees are in serious need of trimming, the sites are not well maintained, and the older ones can be difficult to navigate. NOTE: Don't go down the back road by the dog park unless you see empty sites, or you may have to disconnect to get back out! Strongly recommend staying in the newer area gravel sites if you have pets. Please just pick up after them. Lots of folks let pets do business in the weeds on the far end of the newer sites--which is the direction the winds usually come from (airborne fecal matter). I do not recommend staying here during windy periods--anytime, but particularly in spring, fall, and the rainy season. It's close to the mouth of the canyon and gets very serious winds of well over 50 MPH. A majority of the sites get broadside winds. The older sites on the opposite end from the new section are popular because they have more space, grass (lots of stickers though), and trees--and less wind. However, you'll need a power cord extension for about half of those sites since the hookup is on the oposite side from the water and sewer, and far away. I've stayed here only once, during Balloon Fiesta 2016, and in my opinion this campground is not a good option as they do not take reservations. I was lucky that I was here early enough to get a site, but won't the take the risk again since all the other campgrounds are full at that time. A lot of people were turned away and did not get a site with hookups. Do yourself a favor and make reservations somewhere. - AMMOChief

Few sites with trees and concrete pads. They all seem to be taken by long-term folks. Had to park in 'new' area which is gravel and has no shade. No WIFI while we were here. Weeds starting to get an upper hand on the staff: especially the goat-heads. (A unique sticker/weed that punctures bicycle tires, and when you get one in your foot or hand, itches like mad for a long time afterwards.) In any case, toilets, laundry room were clean. Staff was Very friendly and helpful. Has propane for sale during week, none on weekends. - skypilot

Military only Family Camping aka Famcamp. Enter at Eubanks gate for easy access to the Famcamp. Many long term campers but still plenty of room for first come, first serve.
Several sites need trimming of low branches for easier access. Part of Famcamp is treeless for those who prefer that. Some pull thrus require driving over a curb to exit, something we chose not to do. Very helpful office staff.
Famcamp is in serious need of landscape maintenance. Trimming lower branches will allow trees to gain height for pleasant shade instead of bush like height. Recent stay at Air Force Academy Famcamp was exemplary in comparison. - SemperParatus

We stayed at El Rancho RV & Mobile Home Park for 4 nights while we were in Albuquerque visiting friends & family. NOTE--the entrance is on Zuni.
We had a nice site with water, sewer & 30 amp power & we did not have a problem getting our 27' trailer backed in. The park itself was quiet, clean & the residents were cordial. Wyoming is a main street that had a lot of traffic on Friday & Saturday nights but was otherwise fine.
We found the location to be very convenient for restaurants, the downtown RailRunner station & a nearby dog park that was really nice. We felt that we received good value and convenience & will return to El Rancho on our next visit to Albuquerque. - dawnbmoore

We picked this park due to its location close to town and the mountains. The neighborhood isn't the best; we knew that going in, but were disappointed when the manager suggested that we not walk our dogs in the neighborhood. He reassured us that the park was safe with one entrance/exit that is monitored. As a prior military guy who lives on site with his wife and family, I believed him. We felt very safe, and after investigating moving, we decided that the dogs could sacrifice their usual long morning walks since this place was so convenient and the price was reasonable. The manager was super nice. He asked us to call when we were close so that he could greet us and guide us right to our spot. He gave us recommendations for restaurants, laundry and sights based on our interest. He gave us a business card so that we could call him if we needed advice. The park was very quiet and other residents were friendly. We walked our dogs around the park in the mornings and several residents came out to say hi...to our dogs and one even gave them treats. Note: the address is Wyoming, but the entrance is on Zuni! There are no laundry, bathrooms or showers on site. I would recommend this place and if ever back in ABQ would stay here again. - MichelleKry

This park is located just outside Kirtland Air Force Base. Looks like it is not in the best part of town, but that may be misleading. The owner of the park is just great. He will greet you as you enter the park and stand by your window, guiding you very effortlessly into your site. There are mostly permanent residents and you will find a mixture of older and newer RV's. We did not find the sites to be as cramped as another reviewer stated but they are not spacious either. Entirely adequate for a short term visit. We are keeping this park as one of our preferred "spots" in our AZ-OH travels. - KPsunshine

This place is a hidden gem in Albuquerque. Exceptional staff! Clean, clean, clean. Sites are of ample size for any rig. Park is exceptionally well maintained, very secure--gated, with security. Easy access to Kirtland AFB, I-40, and the National Nuclear Museum. Numerous great restaurants are nearby, as is hiking and mountain biking. Laundry on-site is great and there is a little store where you can easily get quarters for the machines--or pretty much anything else you need. Rocky Mountain RV is directly out the gate and across Central Ave 2-blocks away. If you need maintenance and they need to keep your rig overnight, the KOA has several great (and clean) camping cabins, and you can easily walk to Rocky Mountain RV (great if you are traveling sans car). They provide exceptional service and have a well-stocked parts department. The parts department is open Sunday's and they are also open later than pretty much anyone else. - AMMOChief

We have camped here several times to visit our daughter who lives nearby. This is one of the best "city" RV parks I have every used. Friendly, efficient staff, great pull thru spaces for the biggest rigs, immaculate grounds, gated access, clean restrooms. Good selection of cable channels. Wifi good; slows down at prime time when everybody is on, but still good. I just don't know what more you would want or expect for a home base in a city. Don't hesitate to stay here. - darwinmoore

Nice park. A little hard to find as it is on a side street. Friendly staff. The pool was closed for the season but they have a hot tub that was still open. - ArmandV

This RV park is centrally located. There is a section of permanent mobile homes surrounding the office. The RV section is 50% occupied by long term residents, some have been there for years. Management does not enforce their rules. My neighbor had an old car with visible damage and no license plate in their space. Some people allow their dogs to run around without a leash. Pull thru sites are positioned head-to-toe with little space between your neighbor. Wi-fi gets overloaded due to number of users. Rate is based on monthly rate and there was an additional charge to use a credit card. Train noise is noticeable but is 3 blocks away. There is more noise from people driving by with loud exhausts and music. - jnateg

Rate I gave based on monthly rate of $495 which includes electric. There are more long term residents than travelers coming and going but we don't see that as a problem, not a lot of visiting between residents. We have lived in Albuquerque many years before becoming full timers and return here for 1 to 2 months at a time staying in this park. While traveling we select a different type of park, this is a basic urban park. Park is approximately 5 - 10 minutes from Osuna exit off I-25. Not sure why people have a problem with the office and manager, I never have. I find him easy to get along with. We've never needed reservations unless it's balloon fiesta and then rates and availability are much different. It is all gravel w/ cement pad but pretty level. Noise is minimal, some distant train noise occasionally. I've used the pools, indoor and out, a number of times with grandkids and always been happy with them. Centrally located if your seeing the sites. - abqnm

Our site was clean and level. Park was quiet after I reported loud music. It was taken care of promptly.
In the month of June and the only pool open is indoor, warm and had 2 cockroacches floating on top. Outdoor pool not open until July due to inspection problems is what I was told. I'd much rather be swimming outdoors.
Cable Comcast isn't always reliable. Internet is the same especially if you work while you travel. - Kristen Sorge

We arrived during balloon festival, pricey but worth it. We were 1 mile as crow flies from balloon festival. We were able to get a site with 1 day notice! This is a mobile home park, which made for spacious lots, and family activities. Great club house, nice pool table, pool, volleyball, play ground, and basketball court. We had full access to all the park had to offer. WiFi was purchase so we opted out of that. Could see balloons and fireworks from site. 9 miles from Old town but all highway. If staying here during festival be prepared for high delays on highway and arguing with cops about needing to go onto Pan American Highway when balloon festival is trying to park. You get a traffic permit but still have to argue with cops. Only way into park is through their detours. Awake at 6:00 AM because of helicopters above balloon festival. I would stay again, staff very helpful and friendly. - Cynthia Gowin

This is actually a mobile home village with some empty spaces used for RVs. The spaces are all pea gravel and fairly level. We needed a place to park while we attended a function at a nearby hotel and this park fulfilled that need. However, the large speed bumps every block were bone jarring, even at our lowest speed and re-arranged contents severely. Each space was equipped with water, electricity and sewer but the water was buried under pea gravel and required the use of needle-nose pliers to remove gravel from the water pipe to let us "plug in" the water key provided at check in. Each space had a glass curb side light globe but ours and our friends were broken and the incandescent bulb at our friends had its filaments exposed presenting a possible shock hazard. The showers at the club house don't open until 8:00am. No receipt was provided automatically and we forgot to ask for one. Be sure to arrive before 5:00pm since the office closes then and there is no provision for a late check in such as a bulletin board with space information. - Mark & Dawn

This a mobile home community with some sites available to RVs. LONG (apx 1 hr) check-in procedure w/14-page legal-size 30 day lease, over 30 would require credit report so we did 30 & then "renewed" for second 30 & the for additional 11 days. Utilities not configured for RV, water & sewer poorly located, natural gas connection in way of back-in (we parked on concrete patio instead of on dirt beside it). Water hydrant in hole in ground (would have been under RV). 3" sewer pipe non-standard for RV connection (would have been behind RV). Large round hole where electric used to be underground would have been under RV. Sloped 2ft or more to rear. Lots of red ants. Mail via USPS, but took nearly 3 weeks to get mail box key. Most rules are commonly broken: 1 pet limit, barking dogs, dogs running loose, firecrackers, 2 car limit but up to 7 cars at some sites. Free WIFI available only in clubhouse. Observed police action in park 3 times plus private security 2 times during 10 week stay. On checkout were told est 4-6 weeks to get remaining portion of deposit back after final electric reading. In midst of all their RV-unfriendly "stuff," they had a very supportive staff. - AFChap

We have been here about 2 1/2 months and are leaving now, but we enjoyed our stay here very much and will surely return if we are in the area. Spacious lots with pristine hookups and excellent condition concrete patio at each and every space. The water pressure was great, internet mostly worked; however, there are times that it does not due to weather issues I would say. This facility has an indoor and an outdoor pool, exercise room, laundry room, showers. I mean, what more could you need? Our pets were readily accepted. We leave Albuquerque with fond memories and were grateful for our time here at this campground. Thank you! - hap

Very nice park, we stayed in the newer section and it is worth the extra money. The sites are large with cement pads and nice rock between the sites. The driveways are wide and the utilities where well placed. They include a continental breakfast which was a nice touch. The only down side is there is a lot of freeway noise and that may bother some people. Would stay here again. - sjones

The $150 a night rate gets you a spot in the temporary "Presidential" campground with water, 30 amp electric, and a few visits from the honey wagon depending on how long you stay. The site is on a bluff overlooking the entire 55-football-field-large launching area for 500+ hot air balloons during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, but you will be a few rows back from the front rank as sponsors and VIPs get the first row. Don't miss the early-morning flight preparations with balloons lit up by their propane burners as they prepare for flight. Suggest watching one mass launch from the restricted-access bluff (bring folding chairs), then going down on the field the next day to mingle with the crowd of spectators and balloonists as the craft are prepared for launch. Amazingly, some balloons are able to use winds in different directions at different heights to return to the launch site after a few hours in the air. There are mid-week contests best seen from on the field as balloonists try to throw weighted bags at targets, etc. Weather permitting, hundreds of balloons launch around 7 a.m. each morning, with the biggest mass ascensions on weekends and Wednesday of Fiesta Week. If the Balloon Fiesta is on your Bucket List, staying at the Presidential Campground is the way to see it. Other cites near the Fiesta are all dry camping. - Mtmoi

The staff was helpful and pleasant. The NEW owner even stopped by visit the first evening. He said that he is working hard to remodel and asked what we felt he should work on next.
I would certainly stay here again. It is near some shopping and things to see.
The best thing about this park is that it is QUIET. A couple of dogs were around us, but they did not misbehaved or become troublesome.
The first visual impression as you drive in could be better. The site was spacious. All the hookups worked and our personal internet and DirecTV reception were good.
The dog walk area needs improvement. - LMF

This park is very poorly maintained with many permanent residents living there. The pull thru sites are not level and my coach strained to get level. Stepping outside your coach you will encounter a field of thorns which will stick to your shoes until you return to your coach where they will transfer to your carpet. I made the mistake of passing through during balloon week, hence the outrageous $48.00 charge. Next time I will drive another hour and skip this place altogether. - Beaver 43

Save your money and go elsewhere. Checkin person was very helpful but the overall condition of the place is deplorable. - jc2

Sites a dirt or gravel. Some sanitary hookups are so far to the rear of the site its difficult to hookup unless you have a really long sewer hose. Also when we called for reservations we were told they didn't take reservations.
Campground is close to the casino and has a shuttle (so we've been told, but never used.) There is a regional transit station at the front gate if you want to go into Albuquerque. - tomboy257

This is a no-reservation park. If they have space, you're in. All spaces are pull-through. Roads and spaces are all gravel, and it gets dusty with traffic. Park is improving sites; some are being improved with landscaping. They have a store which is limited. Each site has covered picnic table and BBQ. We did not use bathroom or showers, and don't know about laundry. There is no onsite pool, and resort pool may be available; we don't know. We were there for the casino. They have a shuttle to take campers to the casino. Shuttle has a schedule but can be easily called. Casino is great. They have many newer video slots. Food is good. The experience was great. The park is next to the rail transit. We used the train to visit another casino on the North side of Albuquerque - Sandia. We would visit again. - Scot671
May 2016 - $33.00
Very strict at check-in and time consuming. WiFi terrible. Dusty and many weeds and stickers. South side has more room and easy pull-throughs. Fishing was not good and other than the casino there are few places to go. We would recommend overnight but better choices in Albuquerque. - Jimmy Swager

A small park with mostly full timers. Booked here because the park I usually stay at was full. I was told I would have plenty of room for my 41 ft fifth wheel. I had spot 76. It was just long enough for the trailer but so close to my neighbors that my slides almost touched theirs. Just a dirt lot with some gravel stayed just 3 days and moved on. Also very windy and about 25 miles from downtown. - Mrrocko

Park is nothing to write home about. We took the "Auxiliary" spot right next to the bathrooms/showers. We had to pay extra for our small dogs (2) even though we are diligent to pick up after them, while others apparently aren't. There's a small clubhouse with TV and pool table. It looked like most RVers were permanent residents. But, it provided a place to hook up for the night. - DesignoSLK

Only problem with this stay was that it was in the Winter. After several snows, the roads and sites are a bit muddy. Excellent service from management though. Wouldn't mind staying here when there isn't 8 inches of snow in the forecast. WiFi typical of RV Parks, where everyone starts streaming and it becomes non-existent. Had good coverage with AT&T though. - Legends Of America
