Post For Sell-Presidential Campground Spot-Albuquerque international balloon fiesta

Greetings,

I have a friend who reserved an RV spot to the Albuquerque international balloon festival 2018 for Oct 10-15th - ends on the 14th. But has the spot an extra day to leave on a leisure schedule to avoid crowds. A cool event if you have never been - over 400 balloons launch!

They are now not able to attend.

This campground has water and electricity(usually 50amp)(which is rare for this event) - $800 Sewage is truck pumped.

This overlooks the launch field. Awesome convenient spot.

I will be there also.

Let me know if anyone interested.

Thanks

Umm, yeah... sounds awesome, but... $800 for 5 days? For an RV site???
I donít know, maybe Iím missing something. Iím an aviation nut, but I donít think I need to see balloons that bad.

Why don't they cancel their reservation? Or are they selling for a profit? Wouldn't be the first time.

I thought the $800 was just for the pump truck! Now that would be expensive!

LOL on the $800 for dumping.

Yep it is not cheap during this event. Think of it like going to Formula 1 or Nascar - those sites are the premium sites. I am headed to Formula 1 in Austin TX the weekend after this and the premium sites there are 8K for the race along the track. - Nope - I am not paying that for my spot.

Balloon Festival is mostly a dry camping event. But nice to have water and full electric when you have 8 people piled into your camper.

On canceling the reservation they will only get 50% back of their deposit.

No worries - it has already sold. Thank goodness these spots are in demand.

Thanks

Johnny
