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
Very friendly staff and grounds! Our tent site was next to some horses so flies were everywhere, but we knew that going in. The bathroom/shower stalls were tiny, but clean.

this does not for KOA standards. We were shocked when we pulled in. It smelled the entire time because of the horses literally next door. We couldn't even sit outside, it was that foul. And the mosquitoes were abundant enough to make it uncomfortable. Shocked this is a KOA.

For a comfortable place to spend the night on Interstate 40 KOA is the best.

The office staff, especially Suzanne, are especially friendly. We loved the free cookies on arrival. I can't comment on the meals, as we didn't eat them. We stayed in tent village and liked the fact that there were clean restrooms close by, a camping kitchen we could use when it rained, and a clean, comfy laundry room open 24/7 where I could retreat to read while it was raining.

The couple that manage this KOA are really nice people. The grounds were clean and well maintained. The showers were clean, but extremely small with poor water pressure. I feel they were charging too much to tent camp. The tent area was basically a gravel parking lot with a designated gravel square to set up your tent. not even a shade tree.

Great host, nice, even though a bit old, facilities and free breakfast. Best of all, the Internet worked like a charm, unlike most other KOAs.

Great spot, super friendly staff that stayed up late to greet us and show us to our site. Also offered a continental breakfast that we sadly missed due to an abnormally early departure.

Made reservation but did not show up. Tent stakes pulled out during the night. Sharp limestone not the best for tents, cuts things up, pea gravel is much better. Great to have a breakfast, THANKS!

A big dirt lot with little shade, too much horse and dog barking noises and relentless flies.

Suzanne was wonderful. Everything at the campgrounds was very nice. I especially liked Butterscotch.

We enjoyed friendly and helpful service in this KOA. The complementary breakfast was a surprise too.

If we are that way again, we would. The hosts were so helpful. We got there late and were able to cook our meal on the outside stove. We had 5 of our grandkids with us and they were very sweet to them.

This is one of the few places where I would come back again and again. And recommend it to all my friends. Stuff is extremely friendly and helpful and place itself is very comfortable.

Wasn't happy with the gentleman who waited on me. Just not a welcoming person.

Very nice campground located by an old lava flow. Restrooms are a bit tight, but there is hot water for showers. Nice night sky watching.
