“Worst experience on our road-trip”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2010

My boyfriend and I were traveling across country and camping along the way. We tried out a KOA in Oklahoma City and it was pretty decent, so after browsing the KOA book we decided Albuquerque central sounded nice. We got the basic tent area. Big mistake. It was on the corner of the grounds, surrounded by barbed wire fencing and feral cats. "Boasts mountain views", yea, how about a huge billboard, a highway, and a police raid at midnight? It was horrible, and we ended up getting our money back. Also, the men's bathroom was locked and my boyfriend was unable to get in until the morning. It was horrendous.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2009

All we wanted was a level spot to spend the night and check our e mail. We paid $51 for a full hook up pull through, which was nice and level. Internet was ok but no cable television, which we thought for $51 we should have had. Management told us that there was no cable because it was an old park--I doubt the park had wi fi or 50 amp hook ups in the "old days". No grass, no trees. In a month long RV trip, this was the most expensive park that we visited. Since we found another lovely park at the other end of town, we will take our business there from now on.

It was noisy and there was no shade. Restrooms were nice and clean. The thing that bothered us the most was that each night, in spite of the fact that lots of people were in the pool, they made everyone get out at 8pm! We watched families and couples head for the pool all set for a cool dip at the end of a hot day. They were all sent away. Why so EARLY? There was still a lot of daylight left! Besides which, the pool was well lit, both in the water and around the pool. The playground, which was also well lit had kids kicked out before dark. And the hot tub, which was in its own little building was covered and closed at the same time. What a shame that all those hot folks got disappointed that way! I recommend the KOA in Bernalillo, just north of Albuquerque. VERY nice!
