Directions

Directions
The preferred gate for RVs to use is the Eubanks Gate (open daily till midnight and is closest to park): I-40, Exit 165 (Eubanks Blvd) and then go south on Eubanks Blvd NE. You will pass the Nuclear Museum on your right. Gate will be just ahead after a half-right bend in the road. Gates are narrow so be careful. After entering the gate, turn right on F Ave SE. Famcamp will be on the right. Office is the second right. ---- Wyoming Gate (open Mon-Fri until 7:00pm): I-40, Exit 164 (Wyoming Blvd) then go south on Wyoming Blvd NE. You'll run right into the gate. After getting through the gate, stay on Wyoming and turn left on Frost Ave SE (turns to G Ave). Turn left on 12 St SE (just before a parking lot and past the parade field) and then an immediate right on F St SE again. Famcamp is on the left. ---- Gibson Gate: This is the gate city buses use so the barriers are spaced a little better. I-40 Exit 162 (Louisiana Blvd) then go south on Louisiana Blvd NE. Left on Gibson Blvd SE. The gate will be directly ahead. Stay on Gibson past Commissary, BX and Gas Station, At light, turn right on Wyoming. Follow directions above for Wyoming gate. Check-in instructions are on the wall of the office.

This was our 2nd stay here and find it to be very convenient for things we wanted to do. The Eubank gate is definitely the best gate to enter. Campground is very close to Sam's Club, Costco,Walmart,Home Depot..all on Eubank. We were in Site #84 in the new section and our preferred area. Spaces are wide and long pull thru. Commissary, Exchange,Gas,PO just off Gibson. While here we toured Fort Union,Acoma Pueblo,Gilman Tunnels off scenic hwy 4, Bandelier and other areas. Facilities clean, but would be nice to have change machine in laundry. Also wi-fi not very good. We ended up using our mi-fi thru ATT. It is a quiet base. The Owl Cafe was recommended, so we went there for dinner 1 night..very 50's and food was good..also, Freddy's for frozen custard. Amy and John Stanton

This review is a mixed bag of both pros and cons regarding what should be a great FamCamp. On the plus side is its convenience to the freeway system (I-25/I-40), diesel and propane sold on base, large and easily accessed sites (new area only), a large dog run (more on this below), free Wi-Fi (see below), and last but not least the convenience to the Albuquerque region and its many wonders. The negatives mar what should be a really pleasant experience. The older section still has many issues (we have been using this FamCamp off and on since 2004); several utility locations that ought to have been taken care of years ago – one site requires an extension to access electricity, several have 50 amp outlets, but only provide 30 amp service. The dog run has deteriorated over the years – we no longer allow our dog in it. There is little to no grass remaining, even minimal maintenance of the area is lacking – downed tree branches, dog feces (!), pick-up bags on the ground and not picked up. A water sprinkler system is installed, but we did not observe it in use, nor did we see any evidence of its use – dampness, etc. Some base housing children seem to enjoy using the area for play and tree climbing. The Wi-Fi is in serious need of upgrade; unfortunately this is an issue at many FamCamps around the U.S. And finally, many residents seem to not understand the rule/courtesy of NOT walking through other’s sites! On three successive days I had to remind someone to not walk through my site (two were older, “experienced” people that ought to have known better). A discussion with the office lady wasn’t much help.

Awesome campground and camp host. As with all military campgrounds WiFi could use work. The laundry facilities could use some attention as well. This is an awesome campground!

M.M. left this review using the Directory software: - We are here for the balloon festival so the park was full and the over flow had a number of units in it. Our prior extended stay was with Thousand Trails in Las Vegas. The lots here are so much wider and yes they are gravel but so were the lots at Thousand Trails and Navada State Park. A real plus for us is diesel is sold at the BX Service Station. 36' 5th wheel.

W.R. left this review using the Directory software: - We are at Kirtland just before the Balloon Fiesta. The park is FULL and overflow is also brimming. This being said, my primary information to pass on is that the Eubanks gate is no longer the gate of choice, in my opinion. The word "tight" is an understatement and there is little room for error. Serious scrape marks on the steel entrance gate beams underscore my comments. I concur in an earlier comment about the Gibson Gate as access. Its in 2 parts and the first part is wide and not a problem. The second element, splits into 2 parts, one being a "car" or normal "check your ID section and a second, to the right, parking area with a wide entrance to the main base. The trick is to get them to remove the pylons to let you through as mostly there is only one person manning the entire gate.|This base seems to be mainly just a security area for classified security companies. Military personnel are few and we have yet to see a patrole vehicle. Lots of airport noise, and some strange whooshing sound that echoes 24-7 from one of the gated civilian facilities. I find it quite unusual that civilian companies have their own fenced (seriously with, concertina wire on top, and one over 15 feet tall) within a military base. Also their own guards. We bumped into several of these when looking for the arts and crafts center.

Stayed here while making our PCS move to Georgia, as well as getting to spend some time with our son in college. Absolutely worth the price and conveniently located near everything one would need. Can not say enough great things about the super friendly and professional staff that work here. We will definitely stay here in the future.

Stayed in the newer graveled area. Large & long sites, but had to spend time shoving gravel around to level our 5th wheel. Could have been due to balloon festival overuse, and wasn't difficult to fix. Someone pulled next to us the next day that tried using boards to level their TT, so it wasn't just our spot. Host was great when we came in on a Sunday, but one of the regular staff on Monday didn't seem to be all that interested in doing much but take our money for the stay. Location is fantastic for seeing ABQ and things in the area. Base facilities are good, but not extensive. They sell diesel at the Exchange Shoppette and at a good price, and there's an RV wash booth at the car wash.

This was our second time here, we really like the long and wide gravel sites in the "new" part of the park. Super easy access for our 38' coach pulling a 20' car trailer.

J.C. left this review using the Directory software: - We are 45 feet plus tow car and we really like the new sites. Yes they are gravel and yes there are no trees, BUT they are wide and long and easy to get into and out of. No trees is a plus for us, no way will the side of the rig get scratched, no worries about the slides hitting the trees and no problem with satellite reception. The rate of $18.00 per day beats the heck out of the nearby KOA which is $50 per day for a 50 amp full hook up pull-thru. Commissary is well stocked and gas station sells diesel. We did not use the laundry or showers.

Nice park and very wide sites in the 'new' area. Host took care of us even though we arrived after her normal hours. Down side has to do with the office. They are still using paper, plexi-glass and a grease pencil to maintain registered guests. It takes more time than necessary and certainly not what the Air Force of the 21st Century should be doing.

We stay here every year as this base is convenient for visiting family. The new section is deep gravel & isn't dusty. Dust blows over from other areas of the base when the winds are going. The sites are wide and long. We like the setup as we travel with friends - the pullthrus are up & down (hard to explain) so that we are able to set up our rigs with our doors facing each other & then we share our picnic tables & common area. The older section does have the trees but not all of the older section has 50amp. I have not been here yet when all of the machines in the laundry room were working. Costco is right up from the Eubank gate. The commissary & bx are over by the Gibson gate. We use the Eubank gate. We have no problem making it thru. It is easy access from the interstate. Just line up your rig & drive in. There really is room on either side.

This place has the best explained "who can stay here and for how long" policy of any I've seen. And it seems to be enforced. The new addition makes their no reservation policy a bit easier to deal with. The older sections have shade and some have only 30 amp. They have good wifi and nice concrete sites. Laundry is very good, but bring your own quarters. No change available by machine or office. Recommend.

This is a good overnight stop but the new area which is where they insist you park is just a gravel parking lot with hookups. No trees, no shade and no WiFi at all. When we asked the ederly lady that runs the office when it might be repaired she told us she didn't know anything about it. When checking in she was more interested in watching her game show on tv than helping us. I would not recommend this for a longer than one night stop.

I stay here every time I am in the Albuquerque area and experience is always a great one. For those with the bigger rigs I would recommend using the Gibson Gate there are no barriers so no pucker factor it is across the base from the park but it is not a bad getting there.

Great place to stay. The WiFi is non existent here. They say it's only hard to get a good connection in the evening, but I tried different times of the day for the whole week I was staying there & never had any kind of connection. I was backed up to TLF & was able to connect to theirs. Good location & the park has everything else you need. The only bad thing I experienced was a little silver car that would speed around the park, peel out in the gravel & had their loud bass music playing in at all hours. It was frustrating because the speed limit of 10mph is posted everywhere & there is supposed to be quiet hours enforced, but nobody seemed to want to disturb the only people who were disturbing everyone else.

Great place to stay. The WiFi is non existent here. They say it's only hard to get a good connection in the evening, but I tried different times of the day for the whole week I was staying there & never had any kind of connection. I was backed up to TLF & was able to connect to theirs. Good location & the park has everything else you need. The only bad thing I experienced was a little silver car that would speed around the park, peel out in the gravel & had their loud bass music playing in at all hours. It was frustrating because the speed limit of 10mph is posted everywhere & there is supposed to be quiet hours enforced, but nobody seemed to want to disturb the only people who were disturbing everyone else.

We are currently in spot 51 in the "new" area and have no complaints. We drove up from El Paso to check out the National Fiery Foods and BBQ festival at the Sandia Casino. As the other reviews mentioned, the older side of the FAMCAMP looks like it is for long termers, and after taking our dogs for a walk through that area it is clear that it used to be military housing that was converted to RV sites. The sites clearly used to be driveways into military housing. I would highly recommend picking a site in the new area. As I am typing this I am connected to their free wifi which has an excellent connection, and I have to say the gravel sites are so big I didn't have to worry about where I needed to park to make sure my slides would fit. The only issue I have with this FAMCAMP is the gate. As many have mentioned, you should definitely use the Eustis Gate. Take I-40 and don't pay any attention to the signs that say Kirtland AFB....Get off I-40 at Eustis BLVD, make a right and stay in the middle or left lane... I stayed in the right lane and without notice it ended. The thing most people didn't mention is that Eustis BLVD basically ends at the entrance to the AFB, so don't worry about where you need to go.....take Eustis until it ends and you will be there. Now to my only issue.....that gate is small....I have a Ram dually pulling a 40ft 5er that is a full 101 inches wide. Im talking pucker factor making it through the gate. We made it with no issues but seriously why don't they open up the gate a little more. When you make it through the gate, you can see the spots to your right. Overall, well worth it and for $18 a night....we will stop here again.

Our ratings are perhaps a little high but our experience was also not at the best time of year. The site we were on didn't have water - it was frozen - which I was able to resolve by running a hose from the next site over to fill our potable water tank. Even if we could have hooked up to the water at our site we would have had to unhook it at night due to sub freezing temps. Fortunately there price for propane was a great value and we used a fair amount due to the cold. The sites in the newer section were extremely large with plenty of room but it is going to take a while for the stone to settle before it will be in better condition. The shower facility and bathroom was clean and nicely heated for those cold morning trips to the shower. The base was very nice and we enjoyed our time while in the area. Unfortunately we weren't there long enough to fully enjoy all of the area since we were really wanting to reach our destination in Arizona. We plan to return however and stay once again in warmer weather as we explore the area around Albuquerque. There is a lot to see but best during warmer weather!!! I would recommend this site to others.

We came into this famcamp at about 9PM, had no issues with getting campsite info and had to go through Eubank entrance with no issues. We set up on the new side and loved the large gravel sites. We found our site to be a little unlevel. The new side had very clean but limited to two showers/toilets. The other side had very disgusting showers/toilets. Price was good and we enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this site to others.
