Stopped here on our way east. Great park! Used all of the facilities while there. Bathrooms were well maintained. Only a couple of the washers/dryers were working while we were there. Propane is available in the park. Talked to the host and she said there are plans in the works to upgrade the park by adding 45 more full-hookup sites, a playround and other ammenties. Overall, a very nice experience.
K.S. left this review using the Directory Software: Been in the Kirtland FAMCAMP several times since 2004. Overall a great place to stay but not quite 5-star. Looks like they are currently trying to get rid of all the painful goat head vegetation by scraping most of grass on the sites away. Definitely will become a mud pit when it rains. Dog run is really nice but all the poop bag dispensers were empty. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.
Major road construction on Post made getting to the Camp difficult. Location was not marked & directions given at the Eubank gate were incorrect. Traffic cones are not placed to be "Big rig friendly". Once we finally got situated all was well. Great dog run & friendly staff. During this construction, you must turn onto 12th @ the Temporary Housing units to get to the FamCamp.
Although our travel timing didn't allow us to spend the night, we stopped at Kirtland to resupply at the commissary on our return from the Texas, New Mexico, Arizona & Utah deserts. While there, we stopped in at the FAMCAMP to see it for future reference. I agree with beachkat, below, about the campground facilities. The base itself is an Air Force showcase, and beautifully maintained, so it seems odd that the FAMCAMP is less than top tier. Still, it's a fine pied a terre for activities in the Albuquerque/northern NM area, of which there are many. Go and enjoy.
Campgrounds are being maintained but the showers are not acceptable. The bathrooms need a lot of help! Showers are old and narrow. Over all we have enjoyed our stay here as it is very close to almost everything we wanted to see and do. We would definitely come back again.
This FamCamp has the potential of being a great place with a few upgrades. They do seem to be actively working on the park. There were about 5 sites open when we arrived but only one suited our hook-up needs. A lot of the sites need extensions for water, power, or sewer. There are thorns everywhere, so watch your pets paws. I will say, they went all out with the Dog Run area. Our dog enjoyed it very much. And it was thorn free! All in all we had a pleasant stay and will return. Oh, there are 2 nice Indian casinos about 20 minutes, one North and one South, on Hwy 25 with great food!
This FAM Camp has been approved for updates on Electric and added pad sites. Bids are being accepted. After traveling for several years, one must be reminded that different commands and their respective bases receives monies based on mission. This base is at lower tiers of allocation. Compared to lets say Nellis, DM, or other major bases with a high level mission. If only the ammenities were spread equally, retires and others couldn't then complain. We felt Kirtland does a great job with what there given. Propane is now available at this FAM CAMP.
