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

The Kampground was clean, the employees were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We enjoyed a nice, quiet, relaxing stay! We would definitely stay there again.

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.

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.

So great - really enjoyed our stay here. Had a rough trip getting to campground and did not want to cook. Great menu available right here. Laundry was clean and super convenient. There is a TV in there if you want to hang out with your clothes. Pool was beautiful. Great advice on local svcs and dining from the staff. We could not have had a better experience!

Facilities are clean and quiet. Rates are good. Internet is not. Should not advertise as "high speed internet". Half the time couldn't get on at all due to so many people using the connection.

Considering the location, the campground was very nice. Office staff was very friendly, the cabin we stayed at was clean and comfortable, other facilities were in top notch condition. The only downside was that the bathroom was not ventilated enough so it was extremely hot and humid in it.

Gorgeous exceptionally well maintained campground. Sites are very large with grass. Excellent area for dogs to run. General store very nice. Staff extremely pleasant. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the tent village. It was everything we were hoping for, and extremely comfortable for our family. Our parking spot was right in front of our tent site, and it site was very clean.

It was our first time at a KOA and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! Sue and Janet were so sweet to entertain my squirmy toddler while I took care of details. Everyone was fantastic!

The park was very clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful (the man with the maltese was great!). We were a little surprised by the distance away from Carlsbad Caverns, but after driving by the closer alternatives we were very happy that we made our reservations at this KOA.

Stayed in one of their cabins that had a bathroom. Super friendly staff. Really nice cabin- nicely maintained and clean. Good rates when compared to the hotel rates in neighboring Carlsbad.

I absolutely loved your campground! Beautiful!

First time at a KOA we thought it was a great time.

Excellent facility with all amenities, including ice cream social and excellent bbq. Little bit far from Carlsbad Caverns, but well worth the extra miles.

Everything was clean and well maintained. Staff was super friendly!

Stay was quick. Flat sites with simple hook-ups are always the best. No change dispenser in the laundry room did not help us at all. So did the dryer that didn't work. But other than that, it was reasonably well taken care of.
