I liked this small place. It isn't new (which also means that shade trees have grown around the site, unusual in the middle of the desert). Only some of the spaces have sewer (there's a dump station - be sure to ask if you need hookup). Lots of people just stay the night. I stayed for 3 nights with my 22' trailer, and had full hookup with the 30 amps that I need. Yes, it's close to the highway and railway, but that's the way it is with everything in Grants, which is a small community built along the highway. Doesn't bother me. Easy access to el Malpais, and the driving on dirt roads on Mount Taylor is spectacular. I especially like the plentiful hot water in the woman's shower. Friendly operators, and a spare, but very adequate registration area and rec room. I'll be staying their again!
I arrived after hours. Signs stated full-hookup sites are $19.; after hours, pick an open site. All full-hookup sites were full. i selected a site with only electric and water. After I leveled, an employee came by and informed me that 50 amps would cost $2 extra. I did not need 50 amps so I plugged into 30 amps. My surge protecter tripped and indicated that 30 amp service had an open ground. The employee advised me the equipment was old and probably had a loose connection. He advised me to use use the 50 amp service or move to another site. I plugged into the 50 amp receptacle and flipped the switch. The switch broke in my hand, cut my finger, and exposed the interior metal parts of the circuit breaker. Only one circuit of the 50 amp breaker worked. The employee advised that he would have the breaker repaired in the morning.
I would advise RVers to test electrical circuits before picking and setting up in a site.
