Pleasant campground; clean and quiet. Good base camp for the caverns and guadalupe mountains.

We loved this KOA! Beautiful setting, friendly people, nice and clean facilities. I highly recommend ordering the BBQ dinner that's offered- it is delicious and they deliver it to your campsite!

Very friendly staff, clean cabin, midway between Roswell and Carlsbad so it's better to know which way you are going before you book, or it's a huge trip back and forth. My daughter wanted to sleep in the top bunk in our cabin, but was hit by a ceiling fan blade on the way down, so I recommend moving the bunkbeds farther from the fans.

One fantastic park, sites are not cramped. A few little bunny rabbits can be seen running around.

All we needed, clean nice bathrooms and the kids enjoyed the pool.

I stayed in the cabin and the air conditioner was not strong enough and The screen door still left mosquitoes coming to the cabin

Wish it were a bit closer to the caverns, but it was a good place to stay. Liked the Friday-night smores.

Very nice campground-clean restrooms, nice laundry and the staff was very helpful. Large sites. The only thing that we did not like about it was that they closed the pool at 8:00 PM--It does not get dark until after 9 and we like to go for a swim after dinner when most of the kids are back at their campsites. It is about 15 miles from town--so don't forget anything.

I recommended your KOA on the way home. We loved it. The crew was friendly, courteous, and very helpful. Definitly will be back. Thanks for the great time and the lovely park.

The "Tent village" is a nice idea, but not properly portrayed on the website when reserving. Never was I aware that I would be sleeping 4 feet from other families who let their screaming children play outside the tent and around the camp area at 10PM.

It was a great experience

Loved this place. The view was amazing and the people were very helpful.
Jun 30, 2015
On the plus, the site was great, the BBQ was awesome, and the staff was very helpful. The rabbits was ground squirrels were very cute. However, the camp was much farther from Carlsbad and the National Park than we had realized. It was not convenient for visiting.

Great KOA just a little to far out of town and away from the Caverns.
Jun 30, 2015
Friendly people and nice park and pool. Site a little unlevel but overall nice stay.
Jun 30, 2015
We really enjoyed our stay! The cabin and facilities were clean, the staff was friendly, the park and area was beautiful, and the bbq was great! Our only suggestion would be a key drop-box for early checkouts :)

Great place to stay when visiting Carlsbad Caverns. Make sure you visit the Living Desert/Zoo..nice surprise. Campground with excellent spacious sites, friendly staff, wifi good, restrooms clean.Had own restaurant,yay! no cooking when we pulled in.. food ok, BBQ decent could have cooked fries longer. Yes, stay here when visiting Carlsbad!

Friendly staff, very clean campgrounds; including bathrooms, showers, and grounds. Like the greeting poster outside of office, welcoming new arrivals, very nice personally touch. Highly recommend. P.S Loved the cottontail rabbits

I thought the campground was set up nicely and was very comfortable. Nice amenities. My only negative comment was some misinformation I received from one of the staff regarding local sights but I may have misunderstood.

It was nice and clean. I like that it had small rock instead of large rocks that we had at some places. Some of the places we stayed had high grass and we had to worry about and saw snakes. It was nice to be able to see everything around you. I also liked the lights around your park. At other parks you have to carry a flashlight. If we were going on another rv trip we would stay there again.

Best tent camping at a KOA we've experienced. Clean and well maintained
Jun 25, 2015
Very Friendly staff, only stayed one night, a little far from the caverns.
Jun 24, 2015
The accommodations were clean and the staff was friendly. My dog loves the dog park area. The only negative was that the dumpsters were full and overflowing. Even so, I will be returning.
Jun 24, 2015
Nice sights, well maintained, very family friendly.
