Very enjoyable stay.

Overall this KOA was unappealing. It is about a 30 minute dive from White Sands National Monument (awesome!) The gravel campsites are very small and too close to one another, with concrete picnic tables that cannot be moved. Clean bathrooms and showers are actually shove average. This KOA is probably okay if for RVers but I do not recommend it for tent campers.

Its a wonderful campsite with all the facilities and we had a unique experience. Enjoyed a lot. :)

It's in the city and does not feel like you are in the woods.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you were surprised about our location. Our website and other materials say we're located in Alamogordo and not in the woods so not sure what lead to your confusion. Best of luck on your travels!

KOA was in great condition, the campsites were clean and the staff were excellent. I understand that it is not the KOA's fault, but I couldn't give it a perfect score because there was a train that ran through the town seemingly every hour and it would blast its horn for what felt like 5 minutes, and it continually woke me up through the night. I suppose if you were in a RV you might not hear it.

We do have the neighborhood train but even the staff felt like it ran more than normal over this Labor Day weekend.

Small, clean KOA with friendly staff. Best KOA in this area.

Very nice location, wonderful facilities, I loved the cool pool on a hot day.

Our weekend stay was great. Super friendly staff, really nice staff honestly. The grounds were very clean. The pool was warm and kept. Restrooms were clean and updated. The hose at the site was a big help. The fire pit seemed new also, that was nice. The playground was a big hit for my kids. The park as whole was amazing! Hot coffee in the morning just like home. Best camping experience!

Our information was waiting for us as we arrived just after they had shut down for the night. Our site was easy to locate; however, it was a muddy mess with the recent rain. On going construction was noted. The women's bathroom was nice, but the men's looked a little run down and wasn't cleaned before the office closed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for the mud, but the big rain we had did make quite a mess. Our restrooms are cleaned daily in the mornings, not as we close at night.

Sandy at the front desk was wonderful, the facilities were clean and inviting. Tha ks for providing a great spot for families!

Gravel pit to pitch tent-area behind site was industrial-- experience was like camping in someone's back yard with no grass or trees. Pool closed at 8-too early. Staff was nice .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were woefully unprepared for tent camping and we did what we could to make you comfortable including lending you equipment for free. Our tent sites are not a "gravel pit" but a level bed of pea gravel that is comfortable to walk and lay on, and there is power, water, extra lighting and shade trees - all of which you used. Sorry your life is so unhappy. Best of luck to you...

We made use of the tent area for our stay. The tent spots are quite small. One of my tent spikes started bending when I tried driving it into the ground, the bathrooms were very clean and we were impressed with the size of the laundry room.

Clean and wonderful amenities and friendly staff! Would definitely stay again and recommend to a friend. My husband and I stayed here for a night after camping in Santa Fe National Forest and after being in the forest, staying here felt like a luxury. Thanks for making our journey back home pleasant!

Camping très agreable. Les installations sont très bien.seul bémol, le train qui passe pas très loin et qui fait un peu de bruit. Mais la nuit il ne roule pas.
Jun 25, 2017
Great place to stay. Staff was friendly. Sites were very spacious for our tents. I wish that every campground that used gravel would use the same layout.
Jun 19, 2017
The camp grounds were nice and clean. (Tent site) The only problem I have is the local trains making so much noise at 3 am till 7 am. Also lots of truck noises too. Bath rooms and showers were clean. Pool was great for our family

The owners were friendly. Very nice.

Service was amazing. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. Tent sites could use some weed wacking and privacy. The tent sites sit right in front of a construction site which is weird and doesn't feel like you are camping. The place was safe though.
May 18, 2017
Very friendly and helpful staff, all the amenities you could need, clean and well-maintained. Thank you!

Very friendly and helpful host, super clean facilities, nice tent campsite.

Best KOA I've stayed at!
May 10, 2017
Awesome service and very clean
May 10, 2017
It's really really really loud if you're tent camping. The train woke us up multiple times in the middle of the night and at 6 am every morning
May 09, 2017
This was my first stay at a KOA, but it won't be my last! I was impressed with the cleanliness of the facility (especially the bathrooms). The staff was friendly and helpful.
May 09, 2017
Very enjoyable. Great campground with plenty of amenities and nice residents.
May 08, 2017
My arrival was going to be late and they were kind enough to leave a note with my name that included instructions on where to find my spot. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean and it was great to have somewhere to plug in after a long day of driving. My only regret is I had to leave before the free morning coffee. I would highly recommend this KOA. Also my 1st time at a KOA! Thank you

Nice staff. Clean bathrooms. Improvements going on within park. Near a railroad track with trains that apparently feel the need to blow their horns dozens of time at 0200. A good Mexican restaurant is within walking distance.

I have no complaints about the hosts or the amenities, but the location was atrocious. Right in the sketchy industrial part of town, backing up to a trailer park. I felt extremely unsafe sleeping in a tent there. Will not recommend this "campground" to anyone.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're sorry you did not feel safe here. However, the campground is fenced around the entire perimeter and we have not had big issues with non-registered guests coming onto the property. We will continue to look at ways to make our guests feel more comfortable and safe.

Great campground facilities - very clean bathrooms, well maintained tent sites, and helpful staff. The scenery isn't great but you are 20 minutes from White Sands National Monument and Dog Canyon trail. Great nearby grocery store (Lowe's) too.

A quiet and convenient little campground. Only flaw was the wifi doesn't work well.

Clean. Friendly. Comfortable. Convenient. Safe

Friendly staff. Location wasn't the best, but overall, a good stay.
Mar 18, 2017
This campground is nestled in the middle of town, and definitely has an urban feel. The staff is so friendly, the facilities are very nicely kept, and the campsites come with their own spigot/light/outlet which is handy. A live band of veterans come to play folk tunes on W/F, and that was definitely a highlight of our trip!

Tent camping - a very pleasant and convenient spot - very smart and tidy despite upgrading works being carried out. The tent sites could do with a little shelter from the prevailing southwesterlies - hopefully this will be addressed once the new facilities are in place. Wonderful welcome; very pleasant folk running the site. Thank you!

Staff was very friendly and the place was clean and welcoming. There was some train noise, but it didn't bother our sleep.
Nov 25, 2016
Great campground close to town. Clean caring owners and a great price. Perfect spot to set up to vising the area. I really enjoyed my stay here.

The staff at the white sands, Alomogordo location are the kindest people! super helpful!
Sep 21, 2016
Alamogordo's KOA was very accommodating, and Sandy, the front desk woman was very nice! They also offer free coffee and hot water in the AM, which other KOA's have not had that option. I used a tent site, and overall it was great!

We only stayed here overnight but it was a nice place to camp out and watch the stars. The showers, laundry, and bathrooms were really nice and super clean. It was really more than what we expected.
Aug 11, 2016
It was great!! Will definitely be back again.

Clean, very friendly, very nice setting, the only thing we could even think of that was negative was squeaky hinges on our cabin door.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your kinds words and candid feedback! Keeping the cabin doors quiet is a forever battle. They have old-school wooden hinges and are hard to keep lubricated. Safe travels!

KOA failed. I placed in the comments that I would be arriving late. Other KOAs have left in a bin outside the office a packet where I could find my site. I was not even able to stay the night. No campsite found. My family and I had to leave to find a place to stay for the night.KOA has NOT confirmed if they will refund my one night and make it right.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We did leave an after-hours welcome envelope and it was gone in the morning, so someone stayed in that site. This guest still has not contacted us directly to ask for the refund. How can we take action unless we're informed of the issue promptly? Our cell phone numbers are on the front door...
