Humble but still pretty nice

We live in Albuquerque, but wanted to spend a day hiking the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge. Kiva RV Park is just a 5 minute drive from the NWR, so we stayed there on a Friday night, so we could get up bright and early for our hiking the next day.

The folks running the place were very friendly. Led us to our spot and made sure everything was okay for us. It's a fairly humble place…gravel roads and parking spots. No concrete to be seen. Each slot has a fairly wide planted area, but this is not patches of green lawn. They have mature native trees and shrubs that are well maintained. Plenty of big cottonwood trees provided shade. The place is clearly run on a low budget, but is well maintained and there is pride in the work here. When we visited, it appeared to be nearly full, and it felt like perhaps 50/50 mix between long-term residents and overnight(or nearly overnight) visitors. There is a large corral area for horses. We walked over to it but there were no horses there. There's a little dog park, a bathhouse and laundry. We didn't use any of those amenities, so I can't comment. I believe the laundry is listed as free.(This is not the case with the wifi, which was complex and had a fee.) I just used my hotspot from my Verizon service and because we had 4 bars, that worked just fine for streaming some Netflix that night.

We really like the place. Lots of neighbors, but everyone was very friendly, and no late partying. A few kids. But really, it was all very pastoral and nice. We'd stay here again. 

Not all was perfect. Aside from the less-than-friendly wifi: 1) The sewer hookup is just an open pipe. No threads. A little stinky when you take the cover off.  2) It is almost literally right next to the interstate. There's no denying those traffic noise is real. We slept with no issues, but if traffic noise doesn't act like white noise for you…you might want to look somewhere else. We're lucky; but I know this is a deal-breaker for some.

They do offer a Good Sam discount of 10%, so with tax, we paid $34. Well worth it. Very nice stay.

Great place to stop East of Albuquerque

This was a great place to stop East of Albuquerque, just 3 miles north of I-40. There aren’t many RV parks around and of the handful this is the one where you are going to get some space. There’s a playground for the kids and possibly some horses in the stables. It has full hookups and laundry and is very well maintained.

Expensive

Considered it for our upcoming trip, but $110/night?

Great forest nestled in the forest after you pass a church from the 1800’s

Great small campground hardly used & nestled well in the valley. Great hikes, rock climbing & tons of great trails. Drive the additional 5 miles to the top & visit that campground & enjoy all of the deer & other wildlife.

Caring owner, clean location

We called ahead because we knew we were going to be pulling into the campground really late as our trip didn’t get started as soon as we wanted. Rick gladly accommodated us, giving us directions and site numbers we would use, then just pay in the morning. The campground is clean, quiet, and friendly! All sites are leveled pull thru’s and hookups are conveniently located. If we are going through the area, we will definitely be back!

Nice place, nice CLEAN bathrooms

Stayed here one night on the fly, plenty of spaces. A bit pricey at 40.00 per night for electric and water for an 8x12 trailer. Place is clean, and owner is very responsive.

Nice for overnight

Nice place for an overnight stay. Owner is nice, laundry, showers & restrooms. Close to highway, which you hear, but nice stop for just an overnight. Takes Good Sam & Passport.

Quiet Spot off the beaten path

Roomy, pull-through parking. The slides and awning were fully extended without getting close to the adjacent sites. Office was open later than most and you can stay in open spots even if you arrive after hours! Quiet area with some long-term residents that was a nice break from the road trip!

Nice campground to hike from

no RV sites but 10 great campsites. Vaulted toilets available.

cibola national forest

Although there was no camping at all in the park. There was beautiful scenic trails. Lots of rock climbing opportunities and spectacular views and photo oppurtunities. My family had a blast and spent the whole day hiking and discovering our newest adventure.
