Great little park across the street from a wonderful hot spring facility. Friendly camp hosts who offered us choice of spots and provided us with local information. Although it was located right on a main route, traffic was almost nil after dark and was never a problem. Would have rated it higher, but there are no facilities located in the park.
This park charges top prices and you would expect it to be in top shape, it isn't. There are a very high number of working people camped at the park, and there are quite a few extremely old RV's now parked there. If you're to become a working man's campground, then you shouldn't charge top tear prices. The pool and the hot tub area are totally unacceptable - the decks need to be redone, the chairs are falling apart. the hot tub is old and seriously unattractive. Work campers pretty much run things and some are exceptional at keeping the park clean and orderly, but there are some serious exceptions. Upon check-in, we had asked to be put in a particular area if there was space available, only to be put in a totally different spot. The desk personnel never listened. We understand that the park is under new ownership, perhaps they are just using this as a cash cow and have no interest in repeat business any longer. We had stayed here previously and had looked forward to this repeat trip. Next visit to Albuquerque, we'll be staying elsewhere.
We camped here for a month and it was an extremely pleasant experience. The site we were given was just across from the creek and we were able to just plop our kayaks in and go. The site was the biggest RV site we have ever had anywhere. We got to know the staff and you couldn't asked for more pleasant or more helpful people. The pool was spotless and bath house was always immaculate. The only negative is that the Wi-Fi was terrible due to restrictions on usage even though you had to pay for it. We made lifelong friends here and can't wait to go back.
Possibly the worst place we have ever stayed, not that the campground was unattractive, but the owner/host was rude and offensive. We paid for a full hookup/pull through site and were assigned site #9. The site was very uneven, but we worked with blocks and got around that. The campground obviously had turned 3 sites into 6 and before we knew what was happening we had a trailer within inches of us on the left and then on the right a motorhome pulled in so close, it almost hit our rig. There were many open sites in the campground and there was no reason to squeeze everyone in, other than to capitalize on their land. We were told they had a huge dog park, which would only be considered huge if your dog weighed 5 pounds or less. When my husband went into the office to ask why the rigs were so close, and the owner basically stated, if you don't like it you can leave. We attempted to lodge our complaint with KOA directly, but that received only their stock: "Thank you for your note," response. We have had other issues during the past year with other KOA Kampgrounds and decided to not renew our KOA subscription and to never stay at a KOA again.
We had a deposit and a confirmed reservation. We arrived on the date and the approximate time as confirmed in our reservation. When we arrived, we found the general appearance to be 180 degrees (negatively) from the photos and description supplied on the internet. Mostly park models that were 1960's vintage and not well kept. The pool was minuscule and also appeared to be very old. Wi-Fi was only available in the clubhouse. To compound the appearance issue, the site we had been given at reservation, was given to another camper just before we arrived and the alternative site was beyond unacceptable. We did not stay and we were fortunate that we were able to get another spot further up the coast. The manager who took our reservation was extremely apologetic, but this was a very unacceptable situation.
