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

Easy to get to and find. Gated with night gate guard. Sites/roads all paved. Sites are adequate for a tree, picnic table and a fire pit. No problems with leveling or hook-ups. Wifi seems adequate but my Verizon Hotspot is faster. Really nice puppy parks; children playground; putt-putt golf. Hot tup (open), pool (closed - boo). Cable channels but mine was "fuzzy" so just used OTA HD channels. There are a number of restaurants near by. Really the only con is the price but then I guess you are paying for a secure, gated community with all the amenities. - Willym_Leaming

All sites are pull through on gravel but the roads are paved. The campground is next to the Interstate but the staff will try to get you as far away as possible and there is a barrier fence. It was not a problem for us. There is very tight security with a gate that closes at 7pm. Security sits at the gate after it closes. - Hikers

We did a mix of hookup and storage so we could travel back home for a week. They were completely accommodating and flexible, friendly and helpful. That said, it is a very large RV park, right next to the highway and very much a parking lot. It is also a good 20 minutes outside of central Albuquerque and in a rundown neighborhood of light industry. The park itself is very well run, good security and great facilities. - Eugeria

The website and even the satellite map makes this place look better than it is. It was not easy to find the office. It was at the top end of a large parking lot but no way to pull in with a motor home towing a car and then to get out. Had to park along the edge, in the street. True, a small sign said to park there. Finally signed in, we had to follow a person in a car over many many speed bumps to get to our site. The park is full of units who seem to have been here a long time, and it is messy and shabby looking. Got the feel that the owner is here just to collect the money. The one good thing to say is that there seems to be enough gravel. The really bad thing, and the thing that is #1 to most RVers is that the site is not level. It took a lot of work to get us level, and we are not inexperienced at doing this. We would NEVER stay here again. - Martee

We were able to stay 2 nights because someone had to cancel his reservation. We were told because we took his place he would get his money back. When we called We were told only the first night they had room for us. When we got to the office 15 minutes later we asked if there was anyway to get another night then the gentleman told us someone had to cancel and were given his spot. I hope he does get his money back, that's the right thing to do. As for the park, there are many long term residents, not too much junk around their trailers. We had someone parked right by us (they looked like perm residents) with a dog that barked most of the day and was still barking when I went to bed around 8:30. All sites are pull thru. Lots are gravel (we needed boards to level trailer) with a concrete pad big enough for a couple chairs and a small table. We had a tree in our spot that had some broken limbs. (not sure tree is real healthy, I'm glad there was no wind) There is no grass anywhere I saw. Restrooms, showers and laundry are way too far to use, they are at the office building which is about 1 to 2 blocks weaving thru a manufactured mobile home park. We opted to go to a laundromat somewhere else since we have to drive. We came to see balloon festival, this was not on our schedule it was very last minute for us. If I could have gotten in I would have camped at the balloon festival in dry camping for $35.00 a night. This park was a nice alternative, we were able to see lots of balloons this morning while getting ready to leave. I felt safe and the grounds are clean. The office gentleman was very nice and even drew a map for driving to the balloon festival. - Kathy_Oregon

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

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

Would recommend staying. The hostess upon arrival was polite and extremely helpful. A little road noise but really not too bad. Sites were easy in and out for our 40ft and tow. - Barbara Dyer

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 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

Associated with the Islata Casino and has a shuttle to the casino. Dirt and gravel roads that are very dusty, and sites that are set at such an angle that we stepped out our door right at our neighbors sewer. They have very nice little pavilions at each site for the picnic table, which because of the angle of the sites is far forward on the site. There was a lot of day traffic for the fishing lakes and it got very crowded on the weekend. When we came back to the park during the day on Sunday we had to wait in a long line to get in, and then they sent us on a very circuitous route through the park to get to our site because they make all the traffic go one way when the park is crowded. They could have easily let us drive directly to our site without causing any problems with traffic flow. We have stayed at other "casino RV parks" and this one is not nearly as nice. It is more like the campground at a state park. It wasn't terrible, but not what we expected either. - Peglegtraveler

This used to be one of our favorite parks in the Albuquerque area. Had not been here for almost 3 years as we have been traveling extensively during this time. We arrived to find that they have now removed all of the grass in the park and replaced it either with gravel or just let it go to dirt. Many of the trees at the sites are now dead so realize that park maintenance no longer exists. The nearby golf course now receives all the water and care. Where gravel has been placed at sites, weeds are virtually taking over. Amazing to us that this place has the potential to take the number one spot in rv parks in the area but apparently that is not a priority. The price shown is based on a monthly rate which we decided to pay rather than stay a week at over $200.00. Once we arrived at our site we realized we should have just booked an overnight stay and gone elsewhere. We will never return to Isleta Lakes nor the Isleta Casino so they lose twice. - FulltimersTX

The campground is located a mile or so from the casino. It has gravel roads to all 50 sites. The sites are nice, but the utility's are not convenient to your coach. The sewer hook up is almost 20 feet from the center of the parking spot. I had to back up in the morning to drain my tanks. Now the bad part, the train tracks are about 300 feet from the closest site. Contrary to another review, the trains DO run all night. Every hour on the hour. And because you have to cross the tracks to get to the sites, the rail road is obligated to honk their horn 3-4 times at the crossing! Needless to say not much sleep. The rest rooms are located in the back of the fishing/convenience store. Which is a long walk from the sites. They do not take reservations. It's first come first serve. You pay in the morning when leaving at the convenience store. I would not stay here again. - Ronmac

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
