“GREAT CHANGES BEING MADE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I have family in New Mexico and travel from California to New Mexico several times a year. This place just underwent a change of ownership, the new owners are doing renovations to the property, in order to make this a better RV park. They had WIFI and the property was very clean. I will definitely be staying here again, I'm sure by the next time I come here more renovations will be done. You can tell the new owners really care about this place & I hope they do well!

Thank you for your review of our park. We have completed some of the planned renovations in the Club House, Restroom/Showers, and grounds. We have also updated the Cable TV distribution system as well as added access points for the WIFI system. Glad to see that you liked the improvements thus far.

We pulled in after hours to find a site. It was set up bad for anything even half way large and there were almost all trashy permanents. One side had people living out of an old ambulance and another had people in an old prison bus! We were frightened that with as old as it was the electric could mess up our camper. We could hardly get turned around due to the lay out but finally did and went down the road to the KOA.

Thanks for your review of the Lavaland RV Park. The park is under new ownership as of 12/27/12 and will now see many needed upgrades and improvements. We live in Grants so the park will no longer suffer from the problems of out of state owners. If you are ever traveling through Grants again please consider giving Lavaland another try, I think that you will be pleased with the service and hospitality of the new management.

Needed a camp for a large group, made reservations months in advance. Arrived to find a rundown place. The pictures on their website are a decade old, and no maintainence since. Also, no AAA rating anymore. Bathrooms dirty and smelly and not all plumbing was working. Feels unsafe. Small tent area with ants. Local koa has hardly any tent space but at least they have standards. Owners of this place are out of state and don't seem to care.

Thanks for your review of Lavaland RV Park. As of 12/27/12 the park is under new ownership. We live in Grants so the problems that come with out of town/state ownership will no longer plague the park. Please consider the park if you are ever traveling through Grants in the future, I think that with the upgrades and improvements that we are making to the park we will be better equipped to serve you better.

You can't tell from the website, but Lavaland has definitely seen better days. Saplings grew in unused sites, water leaked from a few places onto the road, and cigarette butts abounded. The proximity to the noise of I-40 caused a sleepless night on my stay, which didn't improve my opinion of the RV park at all. The website advertises cable and friendly management. We had no cable, and management was rude to the point that even after we paid for the extra people at our site, we had to practically BEG to get the code to the restrooms. The only positive was that the restrooms were very clean.

Thanks for your review of Lavaland RV Park. I apologize for the poor experience that you had at the park. The park is under new ownership as of 12/27/12. We live in Grants so the management of the park will improve greatly. The park will now offer wifi and cable to our guests. If you happen to be traveling through Grants in the future please consider the park, I think that with the upgrades and improvements that we are making to the park we can better serve our guests.

Lava Land is a RV park that is mostly to do with cheap permanent housing. It is not kept up or anyone there to man the office.

Room Tip: Go down the road to the KOA
