We thought this a nice campground with long, wide, and level sites - and no shade - at least in the so-called "new" area. Staff was pleasant and helpful. We didn't use the showers, but bathroom was clean and well kept. WiFi is so-so depending on time of day, and whether or not those not so considerate are streaming data. Eubanks gate is tight but doable as previously reported. This is a good location for visiting the area, but I wouldn't recommend for Balloon Fiesta as it is 10 miles from the fiesta site with associated traffic gridlock. If you plan to visit Balloon Fiesta, stay at the huge RV park across the street from fiesta and take the free shuttle. We camped on Kirtland in a 5th wheel and would visit again.

Second time we've stayed here; both times in the newer area. Office staff was very helpful and friendly. However, the bathrooms need some help; both in terms of cleanliness and the reliability of hot water. Twice, hot water stopped while I was taking a shower. We'll stay again, but I'll call first to see if the facilities are working.

Been here in past, this stay a bit bad. Wifi ok, but in the new section need better maintenance of the shower/bath area. Clean up leaves much to be desired and if you enjoy cold showers its your ideal. Maybe due to up coming balloon show? But will return good for a short stay as mentioned in previous posts.

We were only there overnight. The sign on the door said that the office closes at 1200 on Sundays but we were able to check in due to someone being on site. The sites were HUGE & well kept. Easy in & out. The gate off of Eubanks is as reported, extremely tight. Go slow. We stayed in a class 'A' motor home.
We only stayed here overnight. DO NOT follow the directions in the FAMCAMP Guide available at the Exchange. We arrived late Saturday afternoon and had to call security to find out how to get on base. Finally got to the gate and WOW extremely tight for our 40 footer. Found a spot and dropped payment in the drop box. The area we stayed in was a large stone lot with hookups. Perfect for a one night stay. Can't comment on anything else cause all we did was eat, sleep and walk the dog.

This was a convenient place to park and visit family in the area for a reunion. The park is pretty basic (the new section). You're out in the open on gravel parking spaces. Everything is there you need. It doesn't have much in the way of character; trees, plants, etc. All told it satisfied the parking needs and the price was ok.
I concur with previous reviewer - enter at the Eubank Gate. Much easier than the Wyoming gate which we have done a few times. Campground keeps getting better each time we visit. Glad to get the last site in the new area. Work crew is steady maintaining it, chopping weeds, watering trees etc. It will never be a destination campground but very adequate for the many permanent Active Duty residents and those like us that stay a couple of weeks. Satellite TV works good, Verizon Mifi fine although not fast. We will stay again.
Come in the Eubanks Gate. If you can keep your rig between the lines on the highway, you can make it between the posts at the gate. Eubanks Gate is about a 1/4 mile from the Famcamp. If the office is closed, pick a vacant site then go back to the office and fill out the paperwork (lots of extra info is requested on the form) and drop the form (in a provided envelope) into the drop box. If there is an orange cone at a site, that site is claimed, but not yet occupied. Janet, the host, seems kind of grumpy to me. First time I've met a Famcamp host who was grumpy. The "new" part of the park is a gravel parking lot. At least you don't have to worry about leaves or twigs on top of the slides. Sites were long and wide with rigs alternating their direction. Lots of space between the passenger/curb side of each coach that way. Over the air tv was fine. Wifi signal strength was good, but the bandwidth (speed) was lacking. Water pressure was very good. Some noise from the Albu Sunport (airport). Hearing Reveille and Retreat again was nice. I may have been sleeping by Taps because I didn't hear it played. The dog park is in a corner of the "old" side of the park. It is nicely sized, but the area is more dirt than grass. It could be because of all the trees surrounding it or simply a lack of watering the grass. My guess is it is due to lack of watering. There are grassy areas with "No Dogs Allowed" signs, but some campers ignored those signs. There is either a trick to get the showers in the new area to work or they are simply lousy showers. Very little water volume out of either one.

This was our 2nd stay here and find it to be very convenient for things we wanted to do. The Eubank gate is definitely the best gate to enter. Campground is very close to Sam's Club, Costco,Walmart,Home Depot..all on Eubank. We were in Site #84 in the new section and our preferred area. Spaces are wide and long pull thru. Commissary, Exchange,Gas,PO just off Gibson. While here we toured Fort Union,Acoma Pueblo,Gilman Tunnels off scenic hwy 4, Bandelier and other areas. Facilities clean, but would be nice to have change machine in laundry. Also wi-fi not very good. We ended up using our mi-fi thru ATT. It is a quiet base. The Owl Cafe was recommended, so we went there for dinner 1 night..very 50's and food was good..also, Freddy's for frozen custard. Amy and John Stanton
