Sewer connections oddly placed to far from camper. No reservation accepted but when you get there, you can't choose your site. Way, way too close to the Rail Runner Train tracks! They aren't the only trains on the track! Nice shuttle to casino. Close to I-25. Easy on off.
While the showers operated properly, the room of 4 showers had only one hook, no where to sit, and no place to put clothes or hygiene products...other than the floor. No private dressing room or area. Must dress in public view?
Great place to stay as we stayed for 6 nights as they had a promotion going that if you stayed 2 nights the 3rd is free. The casino was amazing as I believe it was the nicest casino in the area, largest as well. The RV park is situated next to Isleta Lake to where their are several fisherman along the banks daily as they have fully stocked trout lakes. Right next to the RV park is the commuter train running all the way to Santa Fe. Train doesn't bother the RV park that much as it only blows its horn 3-4 times when approaching the crossing station. We have a 40ft Class A with a tow car and we had plenty of room to manuever as the sites are pull through. Golf course next door is a plus as well.
Nice park, level gravel sites. Stay on the south side, the north side has the picnic tables on the wrong side of the RV. Took a good bit of arguing to get a site on the south side, almost left but finally the hostess agreed. Free shuttle to casino and commuter train is in front of campground. Good basecamp for visiting area. Open and can be very windy, pull your awning in when you leave.
"4051 Hwy 47" did not work on my GPS. "4051 Isleta Lakes Road" did. There is no after-hours check-in. Plan to arrive before 5 pm, otherwise I'm told you will not get in. Laundry room closes at 3 or 4 pm depending on what sign you read. Showers are bare-bones with barracks style privacy. Dump sump oddly situated at the back of the RV spot. Train to Albuquerque and Santa Fe makes a whistle-stop here from 4:30 am until about 8:30 pm. Shuttle makes round-trips to and from the casino at times. This seemed typical of a casino-run RV operation.
We stayed here over the Labor Day weekend and found the park to be a little less desirable from the last time we stayed there. We were assigned a pull through on the North side of the park and the sites are extremely long so fitting the 40' 5er with the truck in the pad was not a problem at all.
The problem with the layout of the site was if you were to stay near the utilities and the sewer (for a 10" hose run) then your front door was right next to some electrical box and the picnic table/patio was about 15 to 20 feet in front of the coach, nowhere near your front door.
In order to have the front door and steps away from the electrical box and be somewhat near the patio/picnic table I opted to pull forward which now had me at a full 30' sewer hose run which caused the last 15' to be slightly uphill.
The so called grassy area that is supposed to be your front entertaining area was extremely over grown, I asked if they could mow or cut it down and was told that morning that the employee that does that was supposed to show up at 8:00 AM and the time was 8:30 AM when I asked so needless to say it was never cut or mowed.
Bathrooms for the most part were clean except for the showers, had a lot of filth in the stalls. There really isn't a place to hang or lay your belongings so not user friendly at all. You do get quite a bit of dust as the lakes are open to the public for fishing and the people fishing there don’t abide by the speed limit and race around the area creating a lot of dust.
Sadly enough, this RV Park has the potential to be one of the best in New Mexico, plenty of land; the lakes are nice, shuttles to the Casino, decent gravel roads and RV pads, pretty level as well. Store located at the park could be better stocked with items but that is a minor issue. The infestation of mosquitos is all nature and no one can be responsible for that.
