Great stay...would definetly stay again. Great staff and great amenities. Kids had a great time at the pool. We needed to stay a couple more days due to baseball tournaments and the staff worked with us in reserving more days, although our RV site had been reserved to someone else, they gladly moved the other guest to another site without having us to move. Thank you.

We stayed in tent village. Extremely nice sites. Charged a bit more for a tent site than I thought should be charged.

This was the 1st KOA that I had ever stayed at. The people were very nice and friendly. The tent village was great. It was exceptionally clean, even the bathroom and shower. I am a fan and will stay at KOA on all of my vacations.

We had a good stay in a travel trailer. We especially liked the well kept dog park, sectioned into 2 areas for better use. It was well watered and had green grass that was a welcome respite from usual hot gravel and dirt. About an hour from Carlsbad Caverns but well worth the drive.

A family of 5 traveling with 2 adults and 3 kids, ages 3-8. We thought the employees at the campground were very kind, courteous and helpful. The pool was clean and cool. The park was very clean and felt secure. Bathrooms were exceptionally clean. The only drawback we felt was the layout of the park. We were glad we opted for the tent village because the tent sites were out in the open with no c

Really enjoyed my stay here and the cabin, pool, the friendly staff. my son loved the smores and he was super glad to meet other kids to play with. I was glad to have fully equipped kitchen. Only problem, there wasn't extra toilet paper, trash bags and enough coffee filters. But overall great place to stay. Also, liked the great barbecue sandwich from the menu.

It's a wonderful place. Though something has to be done about the long term people that work from there. Having all the 0430-0530 work traffic drive out in their diesel trucks on a gravel road past every camper and especially those in their head lights in Tent Village is just wrong. As camper I will not return. This is the second trip to NM I've stayed there, but not again.

Nice campground and very friendly staff!!

We had a great time, there were a lot of things for our 10 year old to do. Only slightly irritating thing was the many, many flies in the area, but that is not the staff's fault.

We were disappointed at the distance this KOA was from the Caverns. Having to drive 45 mins through town to get the was farther than we would have liked. Other than that, the pool was great, the facility was clean, the dog run was great and the people were extremely friendly.

The location is poor if you plan to visit the Caverns, which are 1 hr. and 15 minutes away. (It is halfway to Artesia.) The baths are hot and humid in the summer. The "high speed WIFI" is anything but. Otherwise, the staff were wonderful, the pool great, and the grounds very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was unfortunate that the A/C was under repair in our restrooms while this guest was visiting us, and our internet is the best we can do in our location. Sometimes it is fine and other times it is very slow.
