Mountain Road RV Park is at exit 333 on I-40 in Tucumcari, New Mexico, less than a half mile from the Flying J Travel Plaza. We decided to stay there because it was convenient to Flying J and easy access back onto I-40 in the morning, but we won’t stay there again because it IS so close to Flying J. We listened to the rumble of the trucks coming into and leaving the truck stop all night. It was a constant drone of diesel engines.
The campground is nice enough for an overnight stay, though. Sites are long and mostly level. We only had to put a 1 X 6 under the tires on one side to get leveled up.
There is no grass and not many trees, so if it were a hot summer day this could be a miserable place. In April, though, it was not bad.
Full hook-ups cost $26 per night. We received a $2.00 discount for paying cash, but they do take credit cards. Other discounts are available for Good Sam and AARP members. There is a nice clean laundry room. The showers were locked and since I didn’t ask for a key I wasn’t able to get a picture of them.
The office sells ice and ice cream bars, and few RV supplies. We didn’t have a reservation but we got there early. The campground filled up later in the day. If you’re in need of a place to get off the road for the night, and won’t be bothered by the noise from the trucks, I’d say go for it.
