Heading to New Mexico for the first time...RV Park Recommendations?

We plan to visit New Mexico in May of 2021 and will be meeting up with our daughter, her husband, and our two granddaughters (age 5 and 2).

Looking at staying near Albuquerque.

Any suggestions for a kid friendly RV Resort with a pool and playground?

We may also need a cabin for the parents. Scenery a big plus.

There is a KOA on the edge of Albuquerque that looks like a god spot to start out with on your trip.

I stayed at Bluewater Lake State Park near Prewitt (100 mile west of Albuquerque) in a pop-up camper during a trip to CA to see daughter in San Diego around 2004.

Think it was the sign and road that intrigued more than anything else. Sign was tiny and the road was unpaved and appeared headed up a small mountain.

As I recall my campsite with electrical cost me $5.00 a night and it was near the shores of Bluewater Lake which was ideal since I had a kayak on top of the Tracker. Access to the lake was free and one could fish if you had a NM Fishing License. There were a bathhouse and shower as I recall.

The night I stayed at the campground they were several 30 to 40 ft RVs that shared a magnicient show by Mother Nature. We were treated to an August moon which suddently appeared on the backside of the campground and it was close enough that it seemed it would sit on and crush us. A truly wonderful view.

Route 66 casino about 10 miles west of town has a huge park south of the casino with very long pull thrus + the amenities you mentioned.
American Rv Resort is also very nice with a pool, it's on the west edge of town.
Just north of town in Bernillio there's a nice KOA. In the past they had a pancake breakfast every morning, but after this pandemic ends, if it ever does, who knows if they may offer it again.
These 3 we've stayed at & can recommend, but there are several in/around town equally as nice.
