We travel alot for DH work and have stayed many places. We have loved our stay in Tucumcari NM at Kiva RV park. The staff here is wonderful - very helpful and kind.
The wifi is a big deal for my husband; we have a hot spot and usually have to use it but not here. Full hook ups include 30/50amp, sewer, water, wifi and cable. Everything works well and they even have fairly level ground, lots of shade trees and at night the community area is light up with lights. All for $85 per week! Don't be scared off by the front of the RV park they have small semi run down apartments, just keep driving through and give it a try.
We are staying in an RV and so don't need or use the bathrooms here and I haven't been in here. So I can't help anyone with that.
Tucumcari NM is a great weekend get away! They have something for everyone; Dinosaur Museum, and old train station that has been restored, Tucumcari Historical Museum, Route 66 with Vintage Neon Signs all along Route 66 Blvd. including: Whiting Brother’s Gas Station, Pony Soldier Motel, Lasso Motel, Kiva RV Park, Palomino Motel, Cactus RV Park, Apache Motel, Del’s Restaurant, TeePee Curios, Blue Swallow Motel, Motel Safari, Outlaw Tattoos, Trails West Lounge, La Cita’s Restaurant, Lizard Lounge, Buckaroo Motel, Ranch House Café ,Redwood Lodge and Paradise Motel, all the old gas stations have been repainted in their old motif of a time when you put a tiger in our tank at the Esso station, kind and friendly people, some of the best cheeses are made in Tucumcari at the Tucumcari Mountain Cheese Factory. Just west of Tucumcari is Russel’s Truck & Travel Center & Classic Car Museumwhich is full of Classic Cars at no charge. Located on the west-bound side of I-40 just west of the Glenrio Visitor Information Center.
One of my favorite places is Watson's Feed store - they have a bakery, and on Friday and Saturdays they have a BBQ restaurant that is amazing!!!! The owners are so friendly and love to visit with strangers. They have cowboy hats and some of the best priced turquoise jewelry ever! Make sure you stop by.
Also known as the “City of Murals”, Tucumcari and Quay County have over 40 murals and counting!
In the summer there is a Farmer’s Market in the city park; on Saturdays at 10 AM and on Tuesday nights at 5:30 PM. Fresh produce, eggs, homemade jams and breads along with homemade soaps and lots of friendly people!
Come and visit Tucumcari as you are traveling across I-40 even if its just for a night or two.

Sohapi ... Interesting and informative write up. Just did a satellite viewing of the park and surroundings. At least it has good shade, whereas the park to the west of it is mostly barren. AllStays app has three good reviews for Kiva. You are not alone in your evaluation. The veterans discount catches my attention too.
I like RV parks with a retro ambience, and Kiva seems to blend with the local theme. Do you have any pictures of the parking areas?
I'm adding to an old thread. We're at Keva RV Park in Tucumcari right now. We'll be here two nights. It's on the rough side but employees are friendly and helpful. It's $20 a night for full hookups, cable TV and wifi. There are no bathing facilities or bathrooms and no pool. They can accommodate the largest rigs and they have pull-through sites. Not all are tree shaded. The pictures above are a little deceiving. It's close to the Interstate (I-40). It's an interesting place. We're on our way to Albuquerque.
