“Tucumcari KOA Rest Stop in New Mexico”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I would describe this KOA as the rest stop on our trip while crossing New Mexico. Nothing exceptional just average here. When we arrived the store was closed and we had to ring a bell to call the owner who gave us a friendly welcome when he showed up. The site we had had a tree positioned which prevented us from opening our awning. The water quality was cloudy (O2 Saturation), Showers were clean and adequate, Cable had 12 channels and clear. We didn't use WIFI. Kathy served breakfast in the morning which was average. The highlight for this location was a visit to the old route 66 town of Tucumcari and Tucumcari Ranch Supply. When in the area we would stay here again and revisit the town. Out of all the KOA's we stayed at this KOA we give our lowest rating although it is adequate.

Room Tip: RV'ers may want to check site for trees that may prevent opening awnings or slides.

This KOA is adjacent to the I40 (hence there is some traffic noise) and is quite easy to get to. It is a few miles outside town and like most of the town, it has a very run down feel to it. Pitches are gravely sand surrounded by some rather reluctant grass and weeds. There are a few trees but they provide little shade. Most pitches have long views over the surrounding countryside (it is nice to be able to see out). Toilets are clean but tired, the games room was open but most equipment was switched off (not that we would have wanted to use it). We were checked in efficiently to a camp site which was barely ¼ full. The owners provide a food service (we did not need to use it). There is cable on the more expensive pitches but our RV TV system managed to receive a number of channels. Wifi is quite good and worked most of the time. There is an on-site dump but when we used it, it overflowed. When one compares this KOA to others at the same price, it offers a poor deal but there are none any better in town (in fact the others look far worse). So unless you have to stay here, my advice would be to press on to Santa Rosa if traveling west.
