Such a lovely campground, and such a friendly reception from everyone there. The dog park is especially nice, and the showers are the nicest I've been in.

This place is remote. It is well put together. However, the wi-fi is poor. The park was about 1/3 full with poor reception, that kept fading out. In order to make my next day's res I had to get up in the middle of the night so I could get on the Internet. Needs fixing. Gary Cahoon

The stay there was very pleasant but it is a place where a lot of people stay while they are working for the local oil companies so at 6-7 am the park is very noisy .pick up trucks leaving out of only one exit,warming up they trucks for 10 minutes before they leave. My only request would be a different exit for them. The staff was so great., bathrooms amazing and the same with the laundry.

The amenities are nice and so are all of the people who work there. This is a huge campground and it was nearly full. There are lots of oil field workers staying there, and they come and go (seemingly) throughout the night. Also, the traffic on the nearby freeway is non-stop semi-trucks. This makes for a difficult nights' sleep.

Carlsbad Koa has to be the nicest RV park that I have ever stayed in. The employees were extremely courtious, and helpful. I hope I can return very soon.

Only problem I had was the dryers were very insufficient. They didn't warm up, so had to get some one to look at the problem.

First, the "deposit" was "paid in full" as soon as the reservation was made. This is prepayment NOT a deposit. The Kabin was heated with a tiny bathroom heater incapable of warming up in less than several hours. The mattress was a worn out basin shape and miserable to sleep on. We left after the first night, losing our money as it was miserable. There seemed to be rats gnawing under the floor. Th

The staff is very friendly and they keep the grounds in very good conditions. I would recommend this campground to anyone and would definitely stay again if I was in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay. There were plenty of things to do at the Campground. We also really enjoyed the food option; it was really convienient and good food.

We enjoyed it! Thanks!

I strongly disagree with your cancellation policy

The KOA is in the middle of no where. Mens shower area poor. Restrooms closed prior to posted hours. Lack of signage on approach.However friendly staff and grounds very well kept.

It was a great stay and friendly staff. Didn't rate it a full "10" because we wished it had been closer to the "caverns". Driving through Carlsbad was busy and slow.

We upgraded from tenting to a cabin at registration & told we would be charged holiday rates..more money. We paid. The mattress in the full bed frame was broken down. Little sleep. Next day contacted management about getting another...were told he would see what he could do but never saw him again. Grounds had loads of traveling grass seeds. Left in front of restrooms & premises.

Clean, nice staff; however, b/c of impending BAD weather, for our safely we elected to leave one day early. This KOA would not refund one nights stay b/c we didn't give a 24 - hr notice. We did NOT know about the sleet and snow moving in until that morning ... we drive a 37' motorhome pulling a large - sized car . . . Not good driving on snow.

Excellent for overnight, facilities outstanding, staff very friendly- appreciated parking RV on your property while we did some sightseeing. Only drawback is distance from Carlsbad.

This was my first stay at a KOA Kampground and I was impressed with the helpful staff. I stayed in one of the deluxe cabins and it was comfortable and clean. This was a truly enjoyable experience.

we love this koa great people two large fenced dog runs with grass the only downside was around the perimeter of the koa was a dog walk area but there were many many people who did not pick up after there dogs so walking was a bit tricky
