We've stayed here on and off over the years. It is an older RV park with mostly narrow shorter sites some of which tilt one way or the other. If you don't have slides and you aren't too long, you have your choice of many sites. If you have some length and slides, or if you want to use your satellite antenna instead of the provided cable you have to insist on one of the newer sites to the left of the old park as you look at it from the front. These are level sites without a bunch of trees and shrubs obstructing the sky view and your slides.
The wifi is acceptable here but spotty. We didn't have a lot of problems receiving email and minimum use. The park is paved throughout and has paved sites available. There are far too many trees, bushes, hedges, etc. around the park which block slides and can inhibit entrance and exit to sites.
The showers are outstanding in design, function and cleanliness. The washers and dryers are expensive but most worked fairly well. They also have a fenced swimming pool which is open in the summer. A light breakfast is provided which we skipped. Most of the RV parks in Albuquerque are out a little ways from downtown. American RV park is one of three RV parks right along I-40 west of town on the street which becomes Central Avenue (Route 66). All three of these RV parks are less than a quarter of a mile from each other. American RV is the most expensive but has cable, pool, FHU with up to 50 Amp, paved sites, and clean showers. If you get the right site, it is probably the most desirable. All the parks are near I-40 so you get the traffic noise. The park does not seem to be too dusty compared to your other options.
The owners seem to be trying to slowly rebuild some of the older sites. We would encourage them to get to it. Some sites are simply unacceptable.
