Isleta Lakes RV Park – Isleta New Mexico

Their web site describes it perfectly: “…getting away from it all, while taking it all with you.” Here you will find a world-class casino resort with its own adjacent RV park and campground set on the stunning backdrop of Isleta Lakes. The claim is that this is the perfect place to stay for fishing enthusiasts and outdoor types who also enjoy the energy and excitement of a casino, but we’ve had a couple reports come in recently that the fishing isn’t all that good.

The park itself is pretty basic, but the casino’s activity hubs make for a great place to relax at the campsite or retreat to the air-conditioned comfort of the Fun Connection complex that features games and sports activities of all description including bowling, laser tag and billiards. There is even a host of arcade games and a snack bar to keep the kids occupied for hours.

The American Southwest is teeming with great things to see and great places to stay, especially when traveling by RV. No matter where in the region the road takes you, it is easy to find comfortable RV camping served up with warm Southwest hospitality.
