What a wonderful place to stay. We stayed two nights and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Beautiful well taking care of park with immaculate showers. Highly recommend for anyone who is travelling.
Excellent dog park. Only downside is the owners of dogs who do not pick up after them. Don't understand why dog owners would do that. Took my dog for a walk and noticed all the dog poo that owners did not pick up. This has no bearing on the management but only that of lazy dog owners. - Cheryl and Ron Burke

Park was very nice but was right next to a cement factory. Every morning at the crack of dawn, they started hammering. Woke us up every day. Many of the people here live here full time. This campground is very close to restaurants and stores. There were bunnies running around in park. We probably wouldn't stay here again. - Mustangmarilyn101

Clean park, easily accommodates bjg rigs. All sites pullthru. Park very close to shopping. Quiet despite being close to highways. Staff friendly. Pool too cool to swim. Nice lounge. Most units are occupied by construction type workers who leave for work between 5-6 a.m. in loud diesel pickup trucks. Didn't bother me because I am usually up by then. - venice

Why did I list this? If you are coming to the Balloon Fiesta and like me like to leave a little time before I have to be somewhere that has a deadline this is a good place to stop. I planned on showing up the day before I was to check into my spot at the Balloon Fiesta. If you are an Elk, you almost always can find a spot to do this. This just happens to be a great place to stop as it is close to the Balloon Fiesta park. I called them and told them I just needed a place to park and they told me there was no issue even though they do not have RV facilities. As it turned out I could see the balloons go up in the distance and drove down to the river to see them even better. We dry camped in their lot for 2 nights. I ran the generator for AC power I need for my bi-pap machine. Had a few drinks and tacos as it was taco night at the Elks. The next day did a dry run to see the best way to get into the RV President's Compound and relaxed. Checking out how to get into the Balloon Fiesta was a good idea as the signage was not all that good. Left about 9 AM to go to the Presidents Compound and arrived about 10 AM. They let us park our rig shortly thereafter even though the published check-in time was noon. - Gilbert & Gail

We stayed in the dry camping area for three evenings. We pulled straight into space R-8 so we could enjoy the beautiful view of the Rio Grande. We actually enjoyed the dry camping spot better than we did the park with hookups. We would stay here again. - Kent and Margaret

This is a nice, well-maintained city campground about 9 miles north of ABQ. All sites are pull thru with ample space between sites. Each site has its own pueblo style picnic shelter. There are quite a few trees. The campground sits on a high bluff overlooking the Rio Grande River (although there's no access to the river) with views of the mountains. We carried chairs over to the empty group site and just hung out enjoying the view. The cg is immediately adjacent to the Coronado Historic site and the Kauau Pueblo. There is also an area for tents or small campers for $14/night, no hookups. The only ding against the park is road noise from the nearby highway - but not a big deal. - lovelifeontheroad

I had a bad experience and due to this I feel it best to let others know. I had to check in with the camphost and when they saw me drive up and get down to talk to them their dog was not on a leash and he/she bit me! It was very painful and they didn't have any professionalism to check on the severity of the bite, they just took my info and money! What happen to me was dangerous and others can get hurt this is why I am sharing it with you all, so be careful if go to this campground and have to get down to pay. One last thing to add is that the men's restroom had trash all over floor when we got there, urinal had paper towels in it and there was water all over the floor. I picked it up for them because I was to afraid to go tell them cause of their dog! - Panthermom

Staff friendly and helpful. Sites are close but each have artificial turf, some gravel, two trees and picnic tables. Laundry was nice, roads were adequate for maneuvering. Cable tv was good, wifi was fair. - Markra

Dry camped one night as we headed south. Staff was courteous and friendly both on the phone and in person, attendant put extra thought into where she put us so we could easily pull into our site.. Maintenance guy came right to our spot to grab our propane tanks to fill them for us. (Propane charge was very fair....$.05/gal more than what we paid at home.) Desk gal even brought my propane receipt to me in the dog park. Dog park is nice for small dogs, sufficient for my bird dogs - they are used to 5 acres. I was impressed that people were cleaning up after their pets as requested. Shower house is spotless, though the stalls are small. Park is quiet, and their is a brewery just outside of it, though we didn't make it over there. Site was very level, would definitely stay here again and recommend it. - wyomingconnie

Monthly rate, electric included. We have stayed here several times before and the park and staff are terrific. Our pull thru was long and spacious, with a nice clean astro turf lawn, no problems after a very heavy rain. The road in front of the park was completely repaved while we were there, making entry and exit a breeze. The owners and staff are continually working to improve the property and it shows! Close enough to shopping and restaurants in Bernalillo and Rio Rancho. There is some train noise during the day(commuter), but quiet at night. - ronboett

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

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

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

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

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
