Meet Your Hosts

The Waite Family

We're seasonal and are open for the 2019 season (March 1st) so come on in and we'll treat you right.

Unique volcanic views in a peaceful desert setting are what you would find when visiting Keith and Suzanne Waite's campground. The decision to purchase their KOA campground came in July of 2003 as the couple decided to make outdoor recreation a bigger part of their lives. "We enjoyed camping and the outdoors, and had past jobs at campgrounds," Suzanne stated. They recalled great camping experiences and wanted others to have the same good times and memories.

Keith and Suzanne enjoy the location of the campground and encourage getting outside and seeing local attractions. Paired with a friendly atmosphere, they love to share opportunities for fun and adventure for their campers. Their customer service allows the best camping in the area and the country. Their KOA has been awarded the President's Award every year since 2003.

"The Grants area in northwestern New Mexico is one of the best recreational areas in this part of the country" said Keith. "There is more here than many people know." In one day, campers can hike among ancient lava flow trails and then relax in the comfort of the cool evening back at the KOA. "We have a unique high desert setting," said Suzanne.

In their free time, Keith and Suzanne enjoy hiking, cooking and pets.
