Friendly staff. Location wasn't the best, but overall, a good stay.

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.

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.

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.

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


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.


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...

Friendly staff, clean facilities, very reasonably priced. We enjoyed our stay at your facility.

AMAZING! Everyone who works here is incredibly nice. The facilities are extremely clean and up to date. I felt at home here and the layout of the camp is very easy to navigate, even at night. There is free coffee in the morning (which is very good coffee) and a filtered water faucet for refilling your water bottle to stay hydrated in that desert heat. We had an amazing stay!

They were very friendly and very very clean. We were very impressed!

Very friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean and amenities were as advertised. My family enjoyed our first stop on our summer adventure!
Jun 20, 2016
Was overall somewhat satisfied. Very friendly and helpful staff. KOA @ ALamogordo is right next to a rail track, so it was very noicy at night and we didn't get a "camping" experience.


To clarify - we are not "right next to" the railroad track. There is a train that runs through town about 1/4 mile away on the other side of the highway, and you can definitely hear it, but it doesn't border the campground.

Being in contact with the front desk was so beneficial.

It is difficult to limit our praise to 400 characters! So friendly, so clean and bright. Great Customer Service! Thank You for a wonderful stay.

Owners are a great plus. Tent sites are decent. Traffic and trains are very close.

Sandy was so helpul and friendly.

It was SO nice to have updated bathrooms!!
Apr 10, 2016
Clean, hospitable, convenient. We did have an issue with somebody trying to enter our vehicle twice as we slept. Not the fault of KOA but disconcerting.
Apr 09, 2016
I loved the tent sites. I'm a light sleepers so the trains didn't help but overall my family and I had a great stay.
Mar 28, 2016
Sandy was very nice. She called to let us know that our tent was being blown off to one side which give us time to come back and fix it before more damage could be done to it.
Mar 26, 2016
Very personal, thanks to the managers, well kept.
Mar 22, 2016
The place is perfect to get to White Sands, really family friendly and the staff are always helpful.

Having never stayed at any KOA campground before, I was quite surprised at the amenities offered. A great bonus were the sleds we could check out for use at White Sands, as that saved us the cost of buying sleds (~$30) at the park. This KOA had everything we needed and more for our weekend trip!

First off the KOA is in the middle of town.The staff was nice and helpful. The campgrounds were under remodel so would've love to stay after it was complete. We stayed in a tent which the site had elec/water. The campground itself needed more lighting. Overall I would stay again. I hope the remodel goes well


Thanks for your feedback! Lighting is a personal thing and there is no solution that satisfies everyone. Some like it dark, while others like it bright. Our plan is to install "dark sky compliant" fixtures that focus light on the ground, not the sky. Hopefully that will meet most folks needs.

The stay was nice. we had a tent site and were a little surprised to have to share a fire ring with neighbors. You each get a table but good luck keeping it for yourself if it's close to the ring. The bathrooms were clean and the staff was very nice! The biggest issues were with the spring break crowd. Personal note: don't vacay during spring break!


We apologize for the campsite encroachment issues. We had some college kids show up after hours who disregarded the "no vacancy" sign and set up camp anyway. We're noodling ideas to add natural barriers and better delineation around each tent site to prevent this from happening.

Excellent staff and clean facilities!

Very friendly staff. Super clean shower and bathrooms. We tent camped one night traveling from Santa Fe to Carlsbad.

Came in late an every thing was set out for me and that was appreciated

Staff are super friendly. Sled loan was great.


We're glad you enjoyed your stay! Sledding down the dunes at White Sands is great fun (not to mention a good workout walking back up the dunes). We are happy to loan disk sleds to any of our guests so they can enjoy the Sands!

The staff was very kind and we really enjoyed the recreation room: ping pong, baby foot, movie... everything was great
Oct 18, 2015
Very friendly staff!

Everything was clean and well kept, electrical outlets at tent sites are extremely helpful. Downside is that trains roll through all night, the neighborhood next door is noisy,and the base flies maneuvers early. This isn't the campgrounds fault, just be aware. We would have still stayed here knowing what we know now.

Friendly people, convenient location. Only drawback are the trains that are quite loud.
Oct 11, 2015
Our experience was awesome. The owners were awesome and were very helpful on what to do while we were in Alamogordo. The campground was very clean and the tent sites where we stayed were perfect. They have filtered water onsite free, fire pits in the tent sites, and the shop has a great selection. We are planning to go back again and will stay there again. We left very happy campers!

People were great and very helpful. Bathrooms under construction but will probably be very nice when finished.
Oct 05, 2015
This was my first KOA stay and I am so glad I decided to stay here the night before and the night after a 2 day back country backpacking trip to white sands. Even though it's within the city, it wasn't very noisy and was clean and convenient - everything I needed. Kelly & Sandy are helpful and do a great job and I'll happily stay here again.
