A gravel parking lot with concrete curbs in a barren desert. Utilities worked and sites are reasonably level but that's all folks. Definitely NOT a destination park and for us not more than a place to park over night. Definitely no frills and nothing attractive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow what a rate for full hookups including cable! Off season and GS discount. Now downside not much in the way of landscaping, not uncommon in the high plains, the clubhouse and bathrooms were closed for the season along with the pool. Casino is nice and the buffet isn't bad either. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Definitely good for a night. Nice long pull throughs. At this rate for 50Amp and free Wi-Fi how can you go wrong. A walk to Casino and truck stop. Landscape could be tidy up. Don't think there is access to restrooms when office is closed. Power pedestal and water are locked so need to arrange if going to be late arrival. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Gravel Park, parking lot style, Allowed to use un-elaborate pool and spa at hotel. Two unisex single showers/toilet combinations. Toilet area flooded when shower was used. Ridiculous. Okay for overnight, but that's about it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a pretty nice park for an overnight stay. Park was easy to enter and exit and the utilities were in good working order and conveniently located. There is a road on the East side of the park that is somewhat busy so I would suggest staying close to the office on the West side of the park. Rate is with Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Spaces are spacious with plenty of room to park. Bathrooms are very nice. The prices are cheap for full hook up and reflect Good Sam's discount. No grass and lots of broken glass at the sites which made it hard to let dogs out without worry of their stepping on debris. Close to casino if you want to gamble. Short drive to Sky City. This is our second stay here and will use it as a one or two night stop when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All sites are pull throughs and can accommodate any size of unit. Price reflects Good Sam discount. Sites do have plants and they need to be trimmed, but would stay here again if in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Slow check in due to training. Park was not very clean. I did not see any garbage bins. $10 deposit on electrical box key that must be turned back in at checkout. Office didn't open till 9 but hotel lobby was able to give my deposit back, only after I showed my picture ID (of course I had to go back to the MH to get that). Very busy truck stop. Took over 20 minutes to pay for fuel, due to only 1 cash register and more training. Customer service skills are lacking. Worst place we've been in our 6 weeks of travel. We'll not be back. PS This is a Good Sam park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here with Good Sam. Nice level gravel sites with beautiful lavender in bloom. Nice open views of the mountains. Looks like they do not fill up. The office help was very nice and we got passes for use of the pool at casino. We ate at the casino and wished we had eaten at McDonald's in the travel center out front. The 50 amp worked great but the internet was too weak. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed 3 nights for the Fire & Ice Bike Rally in Grants, NM. Long sites to accommodate any size rig and tow vehicle or toad. Park is located behind casino/hotel and a truck stop that contains a McDonalds, convenience store, and laundromat. Decent casino restaurant and hotel swimming pool is available to RV park patrons. RV park does have a clubhouse where there are showers and bathrooms, a small lounge, and check-in, but hours of operation are limited. Check-in is also available at hotel. Cable, electric, and water all functioned adequately and the park is a good choice for a few days to explore the surrounding area, as the price is reasonable for for the amenities given. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a good one night stop over. 50 amp is nice when you want full air. It was clean, long pull through. We did not mind the key for electric box at site; it is understandable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great overnight option. Our site was level, had excellent hookups with easy access. Plus, the rate was great - what more could I want? Finally, there is a nice truck stop at the same exit for easy fueling in the morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. This park is a well laid out overnight stopping point. All sites are long pull-throughs, and the utilities are centrally located. The sites are basic, with no fire pits or picnic tables, but they are neat and clean. The club house was open when we arrived, and we were able to check in right at the park. The key deposit routine mentioned by others is a minor annoyance, but I didn't find returning the key to a slot in a locked box that troublesome when we left before the club house opened in the morning. The Wi-Fi was weak at our end of the row site, but Verizon's voice and data signals were adequate for our needs. The cable TV channels are few, but clear. We would stay here again as an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped at this campground after seeing large new billboard on I-40 eastbound advertising Sky City Casino and RV Park - there was a large red sign at the top of this billboard advertising RV sites $12 per night. When we arrived at Sky City RV Park the attendant said it was $19 per night, when we told her about the sign, she said she could not honor advertised rate. Accessible for large rigs, behind casino. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paid cash. (Not comfortable using a credit card here.) Hassle to use this park. Check-in at a busy service station on one side of I-40. Not much room to park your rig. Gain keys to padlocks (sewer, water, electricity) when you pay. The actual RV park is on other side of the interstate, with access via a service road. No attendants at the park when we were here. Neatly laid out, long, concrete pads and interior roads. Full hook-ups, 50 amps. Place looks new, but absolutely deserted. Native plants fighting it out with weeds in the islands between pads. No problem with satellite TV, Verizon and aircard reception. Traveler's park. Not much ambiance. Drop the keys in an unlocked (!)drop box on your way out. (Glad we paid cash.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on a Saturday night in late October when the park had only 10 other RVs. I have to agree with most of what has been written in the last 8 or so reviews. This is a newer park, with FHU, pull-through sites arranged in three rows. Cable TV was OK (40 channels) and all sites are satellite TV friendly. There is no shade and attractive desert plants around the sites. I could not get the Wi-Fi in the evening but was able to connect in the morning. As noted by a previous reviewer, check-in is at the gas station across from the casino. There is a building at the entrance to the RV park that has maybe half a dozen individual bathrooms (sink, toilet, shower) and a very nice lounge with large screen TV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park, almost new and very well kept. Large pull-through gravel sites and roads that are level. Utilities worked well other that Wi-Fi which we couldn't get. Friendly and helpful staff. Showers and restrooms were impeccable. A short walk to the casino which had a decent restaurant at very reasonable prices. Far enough from the interstate that there was no noise. Would definitely use again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had reservations and stopped at the gas station/McDonalds to register. Two young folks were 'manning' the check in but it took a while to find the reservation. Finally we were OKed for entry into the camping area. Told to go to site 6. We were given a key to open the electric box and water hook up. When we got to site six, there was someone else in it. Called and they said pick a site and let them know which one. No problem for us as we wanted a site in the back of the area. Site are very adequate but with typical desert foliage. Yucca and Russian sage etc. Gravel sites and areas between sites. It was sparse but clean and level. The casino had good food that was reasonable and within a short walk to the camping sites. No traffic noise that would keep one awake. Water and electric worked well. We would stay here again. The price was right. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, efficient layout of 3 lanes of parallel pull-through sites. Clean, modern restrooms where each stall contains the toilet, sinks and shower and is lockable. Trains are far enough away where, if you strain, you can hear the whistle. Road noise is negligible. No shade. Free shuttle to the casino or a 5 minute walk. Pleasant stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well maintained park. Sites are very long but a bit narrow. However, there are landscaped spaces between the sites. The sites are level and the hookups are well placed and work fine. Can't comment on the WiFi since we have our own as well as our own satellite TV. The park is a short walk to the casino which has a decent restaurant with a buffet. There is also a gas station and convenience store and a McDonald's right next to the casino hotel. The park is within sight of I-40 but not so close as to have lots of road noise. There are no picnic tables or other amenities. There is a clubhouse with restrooms and showers, which we did not use. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is hard to beat a rate of $15 per night--this was the off-season; and it was the off-season (us and one long-term resident were it). The restrooms were very nice, and the sites were level. However, remember it is native vegetation (so no grass). If you are staying here for the casino, it is a nice location, but we were disappointed in the information they had available about the Cultural Center and Pueblo tours. Also, they discontinued their shuttle so you walk to the hotel, casino, and cultural center (the hotel and casino are a short walk). Also, no information provided to us about wi-fi, cable, hotel amenities, etc. We also had to ask to speak to a manager to get a "late check-out" so we could take the Pueblo tour. It is unlikely we will stay again because we have now seen the tour and are not gamblers. However, the hotel restaurant had an excellent buffet for $7.99. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second or third overnight at this casino park. It's fine for an overnight, maybe a couple nights for gamblers, but with no pool, shade, camaraderie, I can't see why one would stay longer, unless you were a worker. It's very clean. There is a sort of club room with showers and restrooms, which we once used. It could have been a bit cleaner, but that's why we try to use our own facilities. It's maybe a quarter mile walk to the casino for dining. A shuttle is available, but half the time you'll end up walking after a lengthy wait. There's a large truck stop across from the casino that also has a McDonald's. So if you need an overnight while traveling I-40, this is a good stopover. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here only for the purpose of going to Acoma for the Pueblo tour. In addition to the weeds which make it almost impossible to get in and out of your door or to hook-up, the 50amp power would barely run one A/C without anything else, including the refrigerator, running on electric. We would not stay here again and would plan our travels to stay the night elsewhere when traveling I-40 in NM. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Several casinos have added specific RV amenities and this one is one of the best with easily accessible pull through sites with full hook ups. The only problem is that this park has not been maintained since it was built a few years ago. The sites are beginning to be over grown with weeds and the paving is deteriorating and some muddy pools form after rains. The shower/rest room building is also relatively new but unmaintained (we found cleaning materials lying around as if the people had been abducted by aliens right in the middle of their work!). You pull into a spot and then pay in the hotel lobby (not the casino) but I am not sure anyone actually cares if you pay or not. It is a shame that no one seems to care about this place because a lot of effort and money went into creating it. Nevertheless, it is a good place to stop overnight when traveling I-40 in NM. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in the full hookup RV area at Sky City Casino, exit 102 on I-40, $16.55 with tax. 50 amp FHU, with cable TV, and a weak WiFi signal from the casino. The campground is never attended, so go to the hotel desk to register. Diesel fuel was $2.98, with no surcharge for credit card instead of cash which is nice. With an out of state drivers license, the night-time buffet is only $5.99 each, including soft drinks and tea. The food was good. These are long gravel pull throughs. The park is completely neglected. There are huge prickly weeds everywhere, and a mouse infestation because of it. Stepping out your door, or hooking up to utilities, you will be in the massive weeds. It's a shame they don't take better care of it, as otherwise it would be a great over night stay. Next time though we will go down the road to exit 108 and stay at Dancing Eagle Casino to avoid the weeds. Dancing Eagle maintains their facilities so much better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For a one night stay this is a fairly nice park. We pulled into a spot and walked over to the hotel to register. For $15 dollars we had cable, water and electricity. The park needs just a bit of maintenance with the weeds. The little house that we thought was the check in office was never occupied, but we were told that there is security at night by the Sky City Hotel staff. It is literally a spot in the road but they had a decent buffet and gambling if one preferred. Nice one night stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 4 days in late Sept. and early Oct. The sites are long enough for our 36' with motorcycle trailer and car. You pull in park in a spot then go to the hotel desk to register. Landscaping was consistent with the surrounding area. No trees just shrubs. They do have showers and restrooms at the entrance to the RV park they were new but not very well kept. Our Wi-Fi connection was good but not excellent. Worked good for surfing but not for uploading photos. You got $5 per day in free slot play but you had to wait in line for an hour to get a ticket. The casino has slots, craps, blackjack and roulette. Nice variety. Like most places some staff were rude and some were very friendly. Get rid of the rude ones and it would be much better. Cable TV worked great! The breakfast special was Big Larry's breakfast and was a great deal for $3.95: you got Chicken fried steak, 2 slices of bacon, 2 sausage links, 3 eggs cooked to order, hash browns and a buttermilk biscuit. If you have a CDL you get a $1 off that. Staff has no problem with 2 people splitting one either. Pretty good for $1.50 each. Don't want this to sound like a commercial but we enjoyed the stay and would stop again if in the area. Our price reflects the Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The spot we selected was long and wide. The office is open but no one seems to be attending it. The lady who drove the casino van told us that we had to go to the hotel to register and get the key for the water. Road construction is going on so detours and rough roads were present in early September '09. We would stop again for an over nighter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to stop on I-40 and the restaurant has excellent food with reasonable prices. We have stayed here several times and they really do a great job making you feel welcome. The old Route 66 runs right behind the campground and there is plenty to see and do in this area. I highly recommend you make this a stopping-off point. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is perfect for and overnight stop or even a few days if you like casinos. Everything you need is in easy walking distance to the Park. Real easy in and out and you can get fuel on site. Price reflects Good Sam. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we pulled up to this park, there was no sign of habitation in the park office, so we read a small sign on the office door which said to call the registration desk at the Casino Hotel for instructions. We did so, and were told to find a space and come down to register. The water faucet at each space is padlocked so you must get a key when you register if you want water. We noticed several people pulling into spaces, then pulling out again, apparently after being told there was no room at the park. However a later knock on our door and several other rigs to confirm who we were informed us that something was amiss with their bookkeeping and they had room after all, but it was too late for those who were refused. Some spaces were never filled that night. Fortunately we had reservations, which I would recommend to anyone using this park. The park is well kept and clean, but spaces are sand and gravel. There is no shade. There are no laundry or restroom facilities. All in all this park seems to be the red headed step child of the nearby casino. The casino has all the creature comforts, including a great buffet, but at this time very few resources are devoted to helping the RV traveler. Although they have full hookups, it is basically just a place to park. We missed having some sort of human contact at the park, although we are admittedly off season. The included WiFi reception was intermittent. On the positive side, the spaces were fairly level, large, pull through and have 50 amp service. They also have about the best cable TV reception we have ever had. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I guess this is one of those parks that folks either love or hate. Many of the amenities must be accessed in the hotel and or casino. They give a coupon for cash for the slots in the casino (you have to play it, it cannot be redeemed) so if you are lucky you might reduce the cost of your stay. They appear to be repairing the entry road that others have complained about. The area is nicely landscaped, but there are no trees, just dessert shrubs and flowers. The sites are long and level and nicely spaced, although because it is so flat, it gives the appearance of a big parking lot. All sites have full hookups with cable TV which was nice since we stayed more than just one night. The WIFI seemed to work well with a repeater located high on a utility pole in the center of the park so there was no interference from other rigs closer to the repeater. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
By far, this is the WORST excuse of an RV park I have ever been in. No bathrooms or showers after 7pm, all the time I was there I saw not one shuttle vehicle to the casino. Garbage cans were nonexistent. Hotel clerks rude and slow. Had to resort to the Travel Center bathrooms. Horrid, filthy, should be shut down by the Health Department. With no shuttles to the casino, it is a long and dark walk. A very,very scary place. Cheaper to stay at a Motel 6, no Good Sam savings. Shut it down now! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had to go thru a big mud hole to even get into the park. This was a nice over night stop last year for $10 but for $27.00 forget it. The park is becoming slowly run down for a 2 year old park. The clerk in the office had a don't care attitude and there was no mention of $10 in quarters. We left & went down to the Dancing Eagle CG 6 miles away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice facility. I didn't see any washrooms or showers, but they could have been inside the office. RV park users can access the hotel's facilities, which include a very nice outdoor pool. Coupons were given for $10 in quarters from the casino, if you choose to redeem them. I agree with previous reviewers about the poor quality of the pavement, but you can pick your own spot to find one you like. Sites are nicely landscaped with gravel and desert plants. Initially water ran with dirt, but once clear, it stayed clear. Good overnight stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a clean park not too far off I-40. Roads and pads are gravel and level. Big rigs should not have an issue. There are full hook up sites with cable and Wi-Fi. All other services are available at the hotel/casino. Dog walking is ok, just watch out for the goat heads (weeds with stickers). I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If (as at most tribal casino/RV parking lot parks) this was $10 or $15 and convenient to the hotel facilities, it would be OK. However, it's a long walk in a cold wind to the hotel. The hotel pool is available to all, but enjoyable only if your mom is a member of the tribe. White folks are not made welcome. There is gravel landscaping between each site, but, as in a parking lot, it is raised on a 6" curb. If you don't EVER want to sit outside, it won't be a problem. A cold wind blew all night, and it snowed in the morning. This was not a problem. There were no tables and fires weren't allowed. A prior poster thought the landscape might mature nicely, but none of the plant materials selected will ever give shade. This is a good one-night stopover if you plan to visit Sky City Pueblo; otherwise, keep driving. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice new park with long pull throughs. Easy access off I-40. Sinking pavement under wheels. Use of casino hotel facilities available. Best place to stay when planning to visit Acoma Sky City and other pueblo missions and sites. Groceries and gas station next door. Fairly spacious sites that don't crowd slide-outs. Rates drop as temperatures rise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If we arrived at this campground expecting a “10”, we would have been disappointed. This is an intelligently designed, brand new park with no frills. The sites are level and are unusually long, making it easy to pull in without unhooking a towed vehicle. Site separation is very good. Lighting is low, on each utility box. The road and site paving is poor quality; we saw one big rig with it’s back jacks buried in the blacktop. Easy on-off access to I-40, yet far enough away to muffle traffic noise. Once the landscaping matures, I would rate this park higher if they add shade armadas and picnic tables at each site, minimal amenities for a “10” in my mind. No pool at the RV park, through RV guests can use the pool at the casino hotel. The current fee is $26/night. We were given 2 coupons worth $5 each. IF you are willing to spend at least 20 minutes, give up personal information (phone number and driver’s license info) and walk through the smoky casino, you can redeem your coupons and bring your cost down to $16. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just an overnight stop but for the value was very impressed. Sites were large and level. Park was clean. Arrived after park hours so checked in at casino/hotel desk. Friendly staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There were only 3 rigs in the park. I agree with previously posts. This is an easy park for a night's stay. It is an excellent value. The sites are nice and long and there is decent space between them. WiFi worked well and there are some nice views. The shower house is still under construction. If you go to the casino, you need to sign up at the Winner's Circle and then present a piece of paper to the cashier and you get $5 cash. Also, you are given $5 for staying at the RV park. We kept the $10 - what a deal. We ate the breakfast buffet for &7.95 each in the casino - it was just OK. We figure the camping only cost us $6. I recommend this park if you want to see the sites in the area or as an overnight stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Visited park and found it to be very big rig friendly. Roads are gravel & wide. Sites are gravel with a curbed patio area. Sites are long enough for any size coach without unhooking tow vehicle. A coach with four slides is not a problem although the patio area would be on desert gravel. The park's registration building is still under construction and supposedly will include restrooms & showers in the near future. The staff was friendly & allowed us to pick out our site. A well defined path leads to the hotel where rvers can use a very nice pool & spa. There is a large restroom to change in & out of bathing suit. Pool & spa were heated even though it was late October. Wifi was weak, but found it useable. Due to large trucks moving about it could get dusty if wind blowing toward rv park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is in the process of building a new office building that will have rest rooms & showers. The WI-FI was free. With the $15 rate they give you a coupon to take to the casino good for $5 cash. Security will shuttle you from CG to casino. Very nice overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairly level pull through, appears to be brand new, fully functioning hook-up. Easy in and out. Close to casino. Also has a truck stop for Diesel, etc. Quiet, but close to Interstate 40. We would stay here again for overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The previous review was right on the $$$ This is a great place and I am sure that the RV park will have to be enlarge. There is a lot of room for them. I just think this is a fun great spot. We looked out our window to see a cowboy herding some cattle. Views are wonderful and the Casino is great. What more can you ask for for the price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV Park is brand new, and $15 is the introductory rate. It is located off I-40 at exit 102, just behind the Sky City Casino. The sites are all pull-thru, and designed so that you do not have to un-hook your toad (i.e. very long, quite wide, and wide roads). It is all gravel, with concrete curbed islands separating the sites. They all face Northeast, so the sun is in your face in the a.m., and the blowing wind is at your back all day. Excellent water pressure, easy hook-ups, lots of room, with a McDonalds at the fuel station which is between the RV Park and the casino/hotel. The hot tub and swimming pool at the hotel are also for the use of the gusts at the RV Park. Although it has dessert landscaping, even that is so new that you hardly know it's there, but the $15 rate for what you get is great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
