3 Parks near Las Vegas, New Mexico
May 2016 - $42.00
We stay here on our way to southern New Mexico. This KOA is actually at the Romeroville exit, not in Las Vegas, but five miles south. It is nice, lots of trees, and fairly level sites. Only needed one inch side to side and the tongue jack took care of the front to back. But this is NOT the place for your dog. The grounds are full of cockleburs and other sticky things that get in your dog's fur and you have to dig or cut them out. Cell service is good and off-air TV works, too. You'll have to place your dish just right as the place has lots of nice pinon and western spruce trees throughout. - scouter

Nice clean park. We camped here the last part of April and cool weather was setting in. No problems with hookups. Our two small dogs loved the fenced in pet area where they could run free without worry about cactus. We arrived early and although the office was closed our reservation and site information was taped to the front door. Site was level for 5th wheel but truck was starting a downhill trek. We would definitely stay here again if ever in the area.
One of the hidden secrets of this campground are the home made burritos that are made fresh and delivered to your site. - camp4evr

I am not a fan of KOAs but I do like this one. Yes it is on the side of a hill but there are plenty of trees and more privacy than the average parking lot KOA. It is cheaper than most KOAs. The road in is rough but that is not the fault of the park. Goatheads are part of NM. I have never gotten into them at this park but they are a pain especially to dogs. We have never had trouble getting level but we have a smaller trailer--20 feet. The owners are fine people. In the summers the husband who is a chef prepares meals.
This is a small KOA. They do store trailers on a short term basis. We have stored our here twice. We never make reservations and have never had a problem getting a site. This is not a destination site but is a great overnight. The one problem is the dump. Make certain you get sewer. The dump is not properly designed and is difficult to hitch up to without a sewer hose extension. - NT2013

We camped here for one night on our way to Arizona in October. Gates close at 5pm - not sure if this is seasonal. Galina CG closed, but South Area CG open. There was only one other camper in the campground! Water off at site, but drinking water available near entry to campground (spigot with hose threads). Dump station closed. Electric at site as well as a picnic table in a shelter.
The sites are large - some might be a bit hard to get into (tight turns) - it's almost easier to come in the wrong way on the road. Not all sites are electric - so choose carefully.
Even though the CG is somewhat near the road between Taos and Las Vegas (Hwy 518), there was hardly any traffic noise at night.
Cell service (Verizon) - at least one bar LTE. Tailgater satellite dish worked well. View of lake and hills to the west. Pleasant place for a one-night stay. - chinookgeo

Beautiful setting looking over the lake. We wound up here after driving thru the park where we had made reservations was not at all what was described or shown on their website. Storrie Lake is a peaceful setting spread out sites - except for the electric back-in sites. If we were to be in the area again we would stay here. Can't beat the rate. - 3catstravel

Great park…super value. Spent two nights here with an electric and water hook-up. Waste dump is easy on the way out. It is not crowded here in early October, but the dogs across the highway were just as loud as when we visited one year ago. Verizon coverage was 3 of 5 bars. Did not use restroom showers, as they locked the buildings at night, when we intended to use them. Ranger was very helpful in allowing us to stay until 9pm on check-out day, due to significant winds on the highways that afternoon. Would definite recommend this park. - noelbob

Fine for an overnight stop. The campground needs a lot of TLC. There were weeds everywhere, cigarette butts littered the site, beer caps, etc. They were all pull thru, full hook up sites. Located right in town and across from Walmart , so easy access to shopping. I guess for $25 I would stay again. - TravelingDonna

We stayed in a 26' cargo trailer. Pull-through sites. Monthly rate was $385. The managers are very nice. The wi-fi was a quite slow, but they said they were working on getting a signal booster. - jkproescholdt

This park is quite adequate for a short stay. It's not attractive, but price is right and it's conveniently located to just about anything you could want (walk to Walmart). Good Wi-Fi most of the time and good cable. No laundry. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. The sites were a bit short but very level. 30 amp only and the water pressure was a little low. The park employees were very nice. The owner lives on-site. Don't follow Mapquest directions to the park. Get off I-25 on exit 347 and go west to Legion Dr. (Comfort Inn on left, hospital on right). Right on Legion, right on 7th and then right on Harris into the park. - Luvtheroad
