I-40 W from Albuquerque to Exit 81 or I-40 E from Arizona to Exit 81A, turn south on NM 53 at exit ramp. Look for KOA signs on the left and within 1/2 mile of the interstate. GPS: N35.14512, W107.874178
Camp ground was fine. But a barking dog kept me up most of the night

The campground is fairly small, on an open site. The staff were very friendly and complimentary breakfast was welcomed. Also, the host offers to cook a dinner, delivered to your site, for a reasonable charge. Very much appreciated after a days driving. The only downside was that there was a dog nearby who barked all night which deprived us of sleep, and the hooting trains were loud.

Without a doubt, the best place I have ever stayed. Ever. The staff was incredibly friendly and made sure the entire stay was above standard. The KOA itself was amazingly beautiful. They also had a menu and would deliver food to your kabin! I just have so many positives to say about this Kamp with almost no negatives. I may make a second trip back to this area just to hang out at this KOA

Really enjoyed the set up in camping cabin for 2 people. Landscaping was best of the 5 we stayed in.

Lovely, clean, peaceful campground! Beautiful scenery. Friendly and welcoming staff met us with fresh baked cookies! Our kids loved the playground!

There is no pool and no trees or grass at this KOA and it's expensive for a KOA BUT the people are nice and breakfast (cereal and toast) is included in the rate. The location is great though for visiting El Malpais and El Morro.

the cabin was nice.basic,but we only needed place to sleep.RR"s were not far to walk.rating the staff, was a 10. very friendly,courteous.we came in very late, and they still welcomed us with a smile& took us right to the cabin.the only issue we had was behind the campground,a guy that had horses. they were unkempt and drew many flies& a bad stench.koa was a 10 w-o horses.

The host was so helpful and a joy to interact with. I stayed in one of the cabins and it was great!!!

The people were friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night and arrived very late but were escorted to our cabin anyway. The bathrooms were clean and the free continental breakfSt was a nice surprise bonus. The only negative for a longer stay would have been the lack of shade.

I like your concept of a couple's cabin. More roomy than the average set up. We will be back it was so lovely there.

Very happy with our stay there. The staff was very nice and helpful. Would go there again in the future!

Everything was great except for asking how many were in my party. That shouldn't matter if I had made appropriate accommodations.

Fresh baked cookies on arrival and a continental breakfast were a plus. The cabin was very clean and we had TV!

I stayed in one of the camping cabins and appreciated the roof over my head that night. Great campground

What a friendly open group of people to find running the camp ground. The bathrooms are a long way from the cabins and my suggestion is you put in a second handicapped bathroom by the cabins if possible. Also a portable ramp would be a added bonus for those of us who are in wheelchairs. The meals were a great touch and very good. Thank you.

Suzanne and hubby are wonderful hosts, and I will be going there again, next time I'm going that direction.

The cabin was great. The hosts were very friendly, offering dinner when we arrived...that they delivered to our cabin. The KOA cabin, showers and grounds were clean and inviting. The only bad thing: there was a loose dog that ran around in the middle of the night that kept waking us up. Probably unusual and not any fault of the KOA management, I'm sure. I highly recommend this KOA!

Very nice KOA, one of my favorites. A very good jump point for a lot of different sights. Super nice staff, very knowledgeable.

Awesome KOA - great dinner, great free continental breakfast and great short walking trail through part of the lava flow, which I was glad to see because we were just passing through and had no time to visit the "real" thing :-)

Nice reception and friendly caring ownership. Clean cabin, nice bathroom facilities. Love military discounts

Very nice people and good location for hiking. Stayed in a modified cabin, for 2, which had tons of space for a table. Great idea! KOA needs more 2 person cabins.

Allowed late check-in, gave recommendations about where to eat dinner. Overall helpful people. Cabin got a bit cold at night due to space between bottom of door and the floor, but the heater made it bearable.

This is a clean and cheerful KOA that is kid- and pet-friendly.
