Albuquerque Central KOA Kampground – Review
Guidebook America/Discover New Mexico recently visited the Albuquerque Central KOA Kampground, located just off I-40 and Juan Tabo, and it was a very pleasurable experience. The park is clean and large with plenty of room for any size of rig, tent spaces are available, or even camping cabins. A family-oriented campground but sure to be enjoyed by all.
Though the campground is tucked away just below the south side of I-40, the noise was minimal and did not distract from the serenity of the campground. The view of the Sandia Mountains was a plus and the mornings were especially enjoyable with the eastern sunrise and the crisp, blue Albuquerque skies, making for a refreshing stroll through the camp.
Amenities were top-notch including two dog runs (one with a jungle gym), a nice swimming pool and hot tub, playground, putt-putt golf (for a fee), a store with basic supplies. Restrooms were spacious and clean, showers had abundant hot water and were clean with curtains, private stalls and bath mats. There was a large gas (bring your own bottle) community grill. Sites did have their own picnic tables and were mostly shaded and level. There was a rec room and laundry as well. Propane is also available on-site to fill your tank. We enjoyed water and electric and used the convenient dump station located near the office. Cable TV, bike rentals and free Wi-fi top off the amities and services.
The atmosphere was friendly and jovial, with many-passers-through and good conversation, people seemed to enjoy sitting out. The staff is friendly and on-the-ball, keeping a constant vigil on trash, parking and other daily duties. It felt very comfortable and safe at the Albuquerque Central KOA and we would absolutely stay there any time we are in the area. The Albuquerque Central KOA is proof that the spirit of Route 66 is alive and well.
