6 Parks near Tucumcari, New Mexico
Apr 2016 - $22.00
This is a nice campground for one or two nights to see the Old Route 66 main street. They have some nice long pull thru sites that allow big rigs to stay hooked up. They have 50 Amp FHU available. The park is older but clean and tidy. ATT & Verizon work well. Plenty of clear sky for satellite set up. No restrooms or laundry. No train or Hwy noise. Free WiFi works OK but is turned off after 10PM and on from AM 7-10 then off during the day until 3PM. Internal roads are gravel as are pads. Sites are well spaced. Old Motel Facade is quiet nice and not an eyesore even has individual garages with each room (Never seen that before). Del's and the Chinese were both very good. Will stay again. - TedandJan

I realize the options in Tucumcari are slim but this place is near the bottom of the barrel. It's redeeming feature is it is cheap. IF you have Passport America. There is no way this place is worth it's full price.
When you first pull in you are faced with a dilapidated early '50s motor inn. In near complete disrepair with a hole punched in the building directly in front of you. The office is run down and loaded with hand made signs to direct you to the office. Once they unlock the door to let you in you are hit with the smell of curry. The woman is very helpful and courteous. Once checked in she will walk you to your site. They aren't numbered.
Our site's cable TV was provided by a coax cable buried in the ground with barely enough length to reach our coach. The sites are all gravel with a few small trees. No dumpster for trash. There was a handmade sign above a plastic trash can instead. - CharlieB

We stayed here in a 42' FifthWheel and did not unhook. Very nice area, level site, plenty of room for slides, big rig friendly, monitor showed good electric, wifi, cable, and full hook up. Behind the office area and connecting structures was a very large RV park. We were pleasantly surprised. Staff are informative. Great place for an overnight. - Lucy and Ethel5w

$4 per night using the out-of-state NM annual camping permit (regular price is $14) was for a 50A electric and water site on a level large gravel site. In addition, the generously sized site had a sheltered picnic table with a pedestal BBQ grill (which could not be used as they had a no wood or charcoal burning ban due to extremely high fire danger). There is a dump station at the campground entrance. The campground host was very helpful and friendly. Many sites overlook Conchas Lake and there are primitive sites at the lake's edge. The scenery includes many shortish coniferous trees and desert plants among the large rock strewn landscape. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. The night sky is gorgeous as are the sunsets. The park was very quiet during our stay but I can imagine lots of noise in the summer. During our stay, there were high winds on several days including one night with wind gusts of 45 mph. The ranger led tour of the dam was informative and interesting. The campground is 35 miles west of Tucumcari, NM which offers limited shopping and dining. We received five bars of Edge on our AT&T cell phone which was sufficient for talking and texting. We received no service on our Millenicom jet pack. The park advertised Wi-Fi but it will not be up and running until May 6. There was Wi-Fi available at the marina store and the 104 store. OTA TV brought in 2 analog and 2 digital channels. - DD Rolling Ranch

Conchas Lake has numerous areas to camp. There are 104 developed sites and 41 electric and water sites. The campgrounds are located in various areas of the lake. I believe there’s primitive camping along the shoreline in some areas. The area we stayed in was Bell Point campground which has power and water hookups. Each site has a 3 sided shelter with a picnic table on a concrete slab and a pedestal BBQ near the shelter. It’s very dusty when breezy, interior road is dirt and no one seems to drive slow through the campground. Some sites are closer together then others, some are pull thrus, but most are back ins. ALL sites are on a reservation system which was a pain since there wasn't any cell/internet service there. The gal in the Park Office was nice enough to let me use their phone to make a reservation. If you just need a site for one night and sites are available (the post at each site has a green vacant sign or red occupied sign on them), go to the park office. It’s located further down the main road on the left. There’s a marina with a grocery/tackle shop/lounge/diner. There’s also a phone booth outside which we needed to use since it was Mother’s Day. Weekends are very busy but midweek was quiet. Nice views of the lake and surrounding area. You might want to use your water pump when showering, pressure wasn’t that great. While there we saw people boating, fishing and water skiing. Dump Station is located across from the campground entrance. Make sure you‘re stocked up with food since the closest town is in Tucumcari, which is about 35 miles away. We would stay here again but only midweek. - jannie5

I didn't stay! Electrical hook ups outdated! Seen some were burnt! Grass doesn't get cut, was over 2' tall in most places. Hardly any staff on site to assist. Roads were easy to navigate. Entrance had 2 huge potholes that would almost tip your RV over. - User3306

A no-frills campground that is very good for an overnight stop. Exit I-40 at exit 335, and go west on old 66 about 3/4 mile. Park is on your left (south side). Easy access for all sizes. Sites are gravel and/or grass, fairly level. Good Wi-Fi. If you traveling with horses, they have several corrals or pens available. Owner was friendly and helpful. We did not use the showers or restrooms. Would stay here again for an overnight stop. - Cowboy camper

This was a very unusual park but great for an overnight stop if you are near Tucumcari. Opt for a spot at the back corner of the park. Facing the open field gave a nice view of the mountain. There were a number of run down campers that appeared to have someone living in the park, but no one was around that caused any concerns. Fine for the price charged. The staff was helpful in setting up our stay. Horses were allowed, and a pen with an outbuilding was at one end of the park. - themom3

03-19-2015 This park is closed right now. The electric lines are being dug up. We pulled in to register and a fellow told us he was sorry but could not accept any campers now. He said to check back next year.
The website had a different phone number than shown on most information we have - 575-815-0949.
We've enjoyed staying here in the past and are disappointed we couldn't this time. - rv4fun

We stayed one week in our 40 foot motor home. The site was large and level, wifi was excellent and secure,cable tv was excellent,plus water pressure and electric was also excellent. The owners and staff went above and beyond what was necessary to make us comfortable. It is not a resort but is a very secure and quiet rv park. We plan to spend next spring and summer there.
There is a saying don't judge a book by its cover. It truly applies to this rv park, stay here once and take in the book , not the cover, and you will definitely be back. - WJRYAH

Wonderful step back in time to Route 66 motor court life; RV park is behind old motor court. Extra long and wide pull-throughs, 30/50 amps, cable, water, sewer. Cool Studebaker parked out front. Showers are in old room #4, but were clean and tidy. Due to Historic Landmark status, it can't be changed which we felt was a look back in time and not a bad thing. The co-owner was great, guides you to site, helps with set up. Lots of great food nearby. Stayed in 40 ft rig and toad. - gleLOAL

Have stayed at this park several times - no frills, but well-located and well-maintained. Bonus for horse owners is that they have a portable corral you can use! Pretty surroundings on two sides, which is hard to find right along an interstate highway sometimes. One drawback is where they insist on placing your picnic table - very close to your neighbor's sewer hookup. Not too pleasant
Will continue to stop here whenever it fits our drive from Oklahoma to California and back. - pnation53

This park is easy on and off of I-40. The sites are very unlevel and gravel. Also we had to move to another site because our surge protector would not allow us to hook up to the pedestal; low voltage. The staff is friendly. It is an older park and sites are not long and are tight. We couldn't park the truck in front or back. We would not stay here again. - Mike1987

We have stayed here only one night on our way West on I-40. The park is easily accessible from the highway and far enough away that there is no road noise. Flying J and Love's truck stops are just off of the freeway exit. The interior roads are all gravel and the sites are gravel also. Our site was not level and we had to use several leveling blocks to level the rig. The restrooms and showers are very clean. The showers are large with plenty of changing room. The sites are close together. We have our own Wi-Fi hot spot, so didn't use the parks. There is Wi-Fi available. The cable TV channel selection is extensive. We only stayed one night, so can't comment on any of the local attractions. We would stay here again. - MikeandDixie

Needed a place for overnight and this was OK. I always think KOAs are overpriced for what you get. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a limited food service and they delivered it to our trailer. The food was good, excellent french fries! Showers were adequate and they told us the showers were being renovated. Hard to get very warm water. We had it on the highest it would go and it was still just lukewarm. Pull through site was good on level gravel lot. Not much choice in Tucumcari so would probably stay here again. - Jane and Mike

There are very few decent RV parks between Amarillo and Albuquerque but this KOA is very good for an overnight stop. Although the campgrounds could use some extra care, the utilities function well, the Wi-Fi is usable and restrooms are clean. The owners and staff are exceptional, super friendly and helpful. Also, this KOA provides a limited dinner and breakfast food service. We will stay here again. - OldeJohn

Grass was not mowed, at least not in a while. Very close to I-40 so a bit of noise. A fairly good site, gravel. It had rained a lot before we got there, so there was a lot of mud and potholes. The owners were nice and we had no problems. We probably would stay there again if we had to stop overnight in that area. - Genielady
