This was a one night stop after a travel day, and the staff here was excellent. We arrived after dark and had info waiting for us. They thoughtfully put us across the road from other family that was traveling with us. Sites were level, flat and good sized. We had no need to unhook which made pulling out the next morning much easier. Easily one of the best parts of this stay was the freshly cooked breakfast the next morning. Breakfast was not free but worth every penny. The camp store was well stocked with needed supplies and other gift items. Tucumcari evidently exists only as a place to stop on your way to someplace else, but we would definitely stop here again. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Travel Trailer.
A good place for an overnight stay. Sites are level. Good selection of antenna TV station. Rate was the same I paid the night before that had cable and full hookups. This place $34 for water and electricity. However, I would stay again. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Travel Trailer.

One night stop over. Typical KOA with gravel site. Park was not full so we did not have too many people near us. A little pricey for the few amenities. The park owners do offer some meals for breakfast and dinner and the owner and staff were nice. I just find KOA campgrounds charge too much for what they offer.

The campground is very easy to access off I-40. It is one of the quietest campgrounds we have experienced. We were greeted promptly by smiling faces. Our hostess explained all the advantages of the KAO membership so now we have one and save $$$ on our stays. We were escorted to our large pull through site by the camp host. The water and electric were working and convenient. We level manually, so finding the hard packed pad nearly level was a plus. We ordered our dinner from the on-site grille and had great chicken sandwiches delivered to our site! Not only were the shower and restroom facilities like new, the water was hot for our showers. We are staying here again. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
If you travel with a dog, there is a clean, fenced dog park next to the main building. If your dog needs lots of walking, the area is very dog friendly. Your kids will enjoy the pool.

The rate quoted on the phone was less than the rate charged at check-in until I called attention to it. The Wi-Fi didn't work even though the park wasn't crowded at all. The bathrooms were OK. A quart of milk cost $3. It was convenient to I-40. I felt the park was overpriced and would look elsewhere if I were in the area again. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Motorhome.

There are some scary looking campgrounds in Tucumcari. We were there because we needed an unexpected motorhome repair. The KOA folks are very nice. It is a basic campground. Sites are okay and bathrooms are clean. We were so grateful for a nice clean campground to stay in after the others we had seen. Of course I found a large tarantula in the bathroom - what a surprise! I mentioned it to staff and they relocated her to a better place in the desert. That was actually a treat for me - have never seen a tarantula in the wild and after I got over the shock it was quite interesting. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Motorhome.

Considering the choices in the area, I would put this one as the best. Since it was just an overnight for us, the rate reflects no sewer or cable which we didn't need. Park was clean and the dog walk area while small was lush with grass and trees. In spite of being close to the interstate the noise was not a problem. It looks also like they have installed new playground equipment which looked inviting for kids. We would stay here again if we were in the area. The hosts were friendly and accommodating.

Great stop for the night, but it's no destination resort. Nice clean pool and lots of playground equipment. Unfortunately, the equipment is old and very dangerous. The sites are well spaced out with a few trees. The laundry is cheap and open all night and Wi-Fi worked great. It was surprisingly quiet for how close to the highway it is, but perhaps because of the 30 knot wind. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here twice on our last vacation about 10 days apart. The people were friendly and the pool and laundry look very clean. We did not look at the shower house. When we were there they needed to mow and general maintenance seemed below standard. The utility hookups could have been better. The second night we stayed we were delayed by mechanical problems and called to let them know we would be there after the office closed. They were very gracious and had our check-in paper work on the board when we arrived. However, they put us on a lot in the back of the park that was tight and very dark. We had a little trouble finding it. There were many good sites near the front available and we couldn't figure out why they stuck us in the back. We would stay here again as it is very convenient to I-40 and yet quiet but will discuss which site ahead of time. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
The park looks a little cleaner since we were here last year. Very friendly people. New picnic tables. Can eat in the restaurant if you want. Wifi is a little weak. Satellite worked great. Nice overnight stop. Price is for 1 adults and 2 kids. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Motorhome.
When possible, we always stay at KOA campgrounds. We would not; however, recommend this one. The campground itself is OK with big wide pull throughs, a dog park (very very small), and good location. However, we were treated very rudely by the maintenance staff. They advertised a hot tub. After a long day on the road, a hot tub is nice. However, when we went to the pool area one of their maintenance workers was there. We asked if we could use the hot tub and he said "only if you don't mind there's no water in it." He could have just said he was sorry that it wasn't in operation. Don't plan to ever stay here again. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Motorhome.

The sites are long and level and the utilities work as they should. However, there are better options in Tucumcari. The male owner/staff person did way too much complaining about campers to other campers! And, of course, he was not happy with the 'rules' of KOA. Additionally, they really do not have Wi-Fi since it was never available during our stay. We will not stay here again. We camped at Tucumcari KOA in a Motorhome.
