We chose this park because of the convenience of being between ALB and Santa Fe. The park is clean and the two fenced pet areas are nice. There are several full timers throughout the park. The park is arranged for all pull through sites and a separate parking spot for your vehicle. - HUHA-2

We really enjoyed this park and we are so happy we found it on this trip. It truly is the best RV park we have found in the Albuquerque area. Sites are concrete pads with paved road throughout the park. Super clean and truly amazing views of the Sandia Mountains. A quiet country setting but convenient to all shopping & city sights. The staff was very nice and helpful in the office. We will definitely stay here again. - coolplanetg

Saw comments regarding tight for motorhome. I must say we don't have any issues with getting around including our tow that we don't unhook till parked at site. In our opinion, this is the "go to" park while in the ABQ area. People working the park including ownership will do what it takes to make you feel comfortable during your stay. Close to everything & easy on/off of I-25. Will always be here in in the area! Highly recommended. - richz

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

WiFi was good. Cell service very good. Easy in/out. Nice covered patio. No sewer at site, central dump. Excellent Mountain View Will return. - Jimmy Swager

Entrance was very difficult to spot due to major construction on the surface street. We missed the turn and it was difficult to find a turn around due to the construction. That said, check in was easy and the spaces were very nice with each space having a covered picnic area. Shared water spigot between two sites which was a bit awkward. No sewer but dump easy to access. Nice walking areas and close to Coronado Monument. - cchall112

Park was hard to find due only to the road construction and the extremely busy access road, Hwy 550. Once in the park the pull thru spaces were nice. Between the fifth wheel and the truck we needed 50', we fit well. We did not have to disconnect from the truck and we were level in the fifth wheel. There is a nice shelter with picnic table. The bathroom and showers were pretty far from us but there was a path through the brush. Traffic noise and was the only detractor, but we could barely hear it inside the fifth wheel. Two 50 amp and the rest are 30 amp, water connections at these sites. There is a dump station that you can hit on the way out of the park, or before if needed. A few trees in the area and the spaces are not real close to each other. - MnCadventure

Enjoyable stay. Sites a little close but pleasant. Lots of gravel, no sand spurs. There is a bar/ restaurant at end of RV park with a gate so no car needed to access it. The 4 dog parks were great. One closest to us fenced, grass with agility equipment and adjacent to it was one with lower fence for smaller dogs. Had trouble with RV tires leaving, and staff member fixed problem on site. Two more dog parks with mock oil well, more agility equipment. A dog lovers dream if it's humans choose to stay here. Very convenient to Bernadillo, great shopping, restaurants, and outstanding dog day care nearby, Canine Country Club. - Andrea W

This is a awesome facility, staff is helpful and down to earth. I will definitely use them in the future. Only 15 minutes north of ABQ. If you need parts, Aloha RV is just down the way ;). Propane on site. - Canonman16

We were in a long pull thru with good utilities and enough room to park the truck behind the trailer. The site sloped to the rear, but not a problem leveling. Sky was open for dish despite trees growing alongside the pad. Office staff was friendly and helpful. Laundry was $3.50 wash/dry. - ronboett

We are members of Monaco International and this was rally-style dry camping at the West VIP lot just south of the launch field. Our club rate included 2 lunches, 2 breakfasts and appetizers at Social Hours. It's difficult to get into this lot unless you're a member of a group because of its location. Although we could see the balloons launching from our front window, we went down onto the field to get up close & personal. Generators are allowed except for "quiet hours" and water trucks & honey wagons could be utilized for a fee. THE place to be for Balloon Fiesta! A Balloon landed directly in front us in our Social Area between the Host Coaches! Ours was a 4-night package for $475 for the 2 of us. - monamonaco

We stayed here for the Balloon Fiesta, rate reflects 1/2 price for night prior to fiesta. Nothing but a gravel parking lot and they pack you in. We were told that 7000 campers were in the standard lot. No hook-ups, they did have porta potties and garbage cans. Our neighbor ran their generator non stop during the hours allowed. We stayed for 4 nights and were ready to leave. But it was a perfect spot to watch the balloons. We were in the 5th row because we got there a day early. We could walk to the fiesta grounds or stay by our camper. many balloons landed right on the grounds. Fiesta museum was worth seeing. - dalebonnie

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 were looking for a short stay in Albuquerque while visiting family. This Park is mostly a Mobile Home Park, but still has quite a few RV Sites spread throughout the Park. This is the cleanest, most well kept, mobile home park we've ever stayed in. There was a laundry facility very near our spot, and the staff were very polite and helpful. We had a gravel spot, with picnic table and small tree. The entire Park streets are paved, and there is an outdoor pool available for use (we didn't use, as it had not opened for the summer). - Explorateurs

We stayed here the last 2 nights of Balloon Fiesta. We were told when we made reservations it was within walking distance. When we arrived I asked and was told, "Oh no, it's at least 2 miles. You'll want to drive." Site was between two run down mobile homes. There was a fence along the back with barbed wire. We were greeted by two barking dogs behind us and one to the right. We also had someone hammering on a car bumper for an hour on Sunday evening right across the street. Difficult to return after the balloon festival as the road was blocked to get to the village. Had to argue with an officer and drive around barriers. - StewartsD&A

Older mobile home park with sites interspersed for RV's. It is well kept, quiet, and clean. Sites are level gravel, with concrete walks and "patios". Some of the concrete is cracked and broken. No WIFI or cable. All utilities work well. Easy to get to from the freeway. Roads are wide and spaces east to maneuver into. Staff is friendly and helpful. Not "high end", but comfortable for a reasonable price. $15 based on monthly rate. - Pacatrader

Level sites, full hookups, close to town. Quiet, clean, good value. Indoor pool and hot tub. Only 1 shower in bath house men's room. But it worked well and was clean. Laundry machines clean. Only stayed 2 days, but it was pleasant. Not many spaces available. Many monthly renters. - Dzmrsh

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 park is an older trailer park close to the bosque along the Rio Grande River. The location of the park is its only redeeming factor for my stay here. I had a shaded, back in sites that was heavily treed, so a satellite dish would not function in this location. I had to disconnect my 18' car hauler trailer but adequate space was available close by at no extra fee. The RV sites are vacant trailer sites with FHU, 30A/50A services, no cable but OTA available. Because it is a very older trailer park, most residents have set up permanent sites with small, storage outbuildings. Most permanent residential sites are in need of extensive clean up, landscaping improvements and many have multiple forms of transportation, some in need of repair or disposal. Some of the trailers are in the same condition, in need of repair or disposal. My site had several neighbors with dogs that barked constantly. The park itself sits next to another trailer park in similar condition. The owner met me at my arrival, led me to my site and that was the last time I saw her. The few reasons for staying for a month was because of its location. We would ride our bicycles along the well-constructed bicycle and running paths along the Rio Grande River. You can ride for many miles in a north/south direction and feel vary safe. The park sits in a very nice neighborhood with some very expensive homes and private, gated subdivisions and compounds. The park is in very poor condition and is a very, well-established, older trailer park. The purpose of permitting motorhomes and RV's is to generate some income in the unused, trailer sites. The minimum stay is a month, no daily or weekly stays. Electric is metered so monthly fee is reflected in my camping fee and had an electric fee on top of the monthly fee of $360. As much as I really liked the location, I would not return. - kihei7

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
