Take the shuttle to get to the nearby casino or have your fill of food and a selection of beers on tap in the brewery next door.
Big rigs up to 100' long are welcome to the campground, where rows of full hookup sites with up to 50 amp service, and water/electric sites with up to 30 amp service (wheelchair-friendly in some places), await. Wi-Fi is available, and cable TV connections are present in all sites. Showers, restrooms, and a heated pool open late May to mid-October, are located next to the store and close to the outdoor cafe. If you need propane for your rental RV, you can buy it on-site. For entertainment, do some tossing in the horseshoe pit or rent a video and kick back. Pets are allowed in all sites, and you can walk them around in a dedicated area. In the summer, Friday and Saturday nights are movie nights under the stars.
Marvel at the 11,000-square-mile sprawl of the entire Rio Grande Valley from the observation deck of the 10,000-foot Sandia Peak, reachable either on foot or on a ride on the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway.

Glean insights into the artistic minds of the ancestral Pueblo peoples and early Spanish settlers at the Petroglyph National Monument when RV camping at Albuquerque North/Bernalillo KOA, about half an hour’s drive from the monument. About 24,000 carvings of animals, human-like faces, and geometric patterns were etched onto volcanic rocks by occupants of the land some 400 to 700 years ago. For really ancient carvings, make your way to the Boca Negra Canyon area where carvings have been dated as old as 3,000 years.
For a look at how Puebloans lived around a thousand years ago, make a day trip to Bandelier National Monument less than two hours away by Bernalillo RV rental. Imagine what life was like for these ancient Native Americans whose culture can still be discerned in the surrounding communities. Climb up into their cave dwellings (some a few stories high) dug into soft rock cliffs, see standing masonry walls, and gaze at the mesatop fields where they planted crops. Out in the open, launch a kayak in White Rock Canyon or seek out the park’s short and long trails to see more of the area.
Hundreds of huge hot air balloons of all shapes, colors, and stripes fill Albuquerque’s orange sky in October when the International Balloon Fiesta comes to town. Around the world, it’s the largest event of its kind.

With more than 300 days of sunshine, Albuquerque is an inviting place to visit any time of the year. Outside of the balloon season, the narrow streets of the Old Town swarm with visitors who come for the century-old adobe houses and New Mexico’s legendary red and green chiles.

In the more modern part of town, you’ll find heaps of restaurants, grocery and convenience stores, and gas stations to supply your needs during your visit.
New Mexico was once under a shallow sea, and evidence of that geologic past keeps turning up in the fossils that archaeologists have unearthed over the years.
