The facility is what I expected so far as ammenities but the showers had mold, the office and the pool closed at 1900 and did not open until 1100. Although it is not a large park, a few other restrooms could be useful. It was very windy but that has to be dealt with but there could have been more shelter for tent dwellers. For the price, I cannot complain. I have used larger more upscale KOA.

Really enjoyed our stay. Helpful and nice staff; clean facilities. Would have been nice to know before arrival that a screw-on sewer adapter was required (maybe a website note?).

Every thing was great. We ate there our first night. (Have to order and eat before 6:45pm). That was great as we didn't have to cook or drive back to town. Good place to base camp. Carlsbad Caverns to the south and Roswell Museums to the north. Seeing a live road runner (running around) at the local Living Desert Museum was cool too.

Very clean, everywhere . Showers and bathrooms as well as laundry room. It is a bit far from the Caverns, that would be the only downside.

Rented 2 deluxe cabins for two nights each. Staff was great, facilities excellent - just what you'd expect from KOA. BBQ dinner Friday night was very good and convenient.

We love this park. We live near and so have not stayed in several years. We needed a quick get out of town, they are even better than they used to be. Trees have grown, all sites well cared for Super clean bathrooms. The long term were NOT any bother, everyone drove very slow and courteous. We are retired oilfield, you can NOT smell a frac job. Large sites compared to some KOA. Friendly

The worst experience I have ever had. Will never stay there again. I stayed there almost a year and was late on payment because of a credit card declination due to fraud. Paid in full and paid a late fee. The owner and manager are unprofessional jerks. and irresponsible people I have ever met.

Everything was perfect. The grounds were clean and well maintained. The employees/staff made a big impact towards the awesome experience we had! Thank you all!

One of the nicest KOA's that we have stayed at and we've stayed at a lot. Wide sites, very friendly staff, and oasis in the desert. On site dinners available for purchase were great.

Nice, clean KOA Kampground, friendly people. So far, this is the BEST dog run we have seen, nice green grass, no stickers. Always had clean-up bags.

Above all is the BBQ dinner provided by the host.

BEST out all the RV Parks we've stayed at, for a BEAUTIFUL FULLY GRASSED doggie run. It's clean, shaded, and NO puncture weeds! Plenty of room for dogs to run. Friendly staff

This campground was very well maintained with good facilities. It is a pretty good drive to the cave, but they had food available to order and would deliver if needed. Good friendly staff!!

Our pull through was level and ample sized. A better than average park if you can tolerate the sulfur smell from the oil fields. Not real convenient to the Carlsbad Caverns NP.

Wind blew down my tent, so I slept in the car. Tenters should be aware that it gets windy in the spring there. Restrooms were the best I have ever seen- look brand new.

Very clean spacious bathrooms and laundry.

Beautiful campground and bathroom And I liked the heat lamp. The patio site with the swing was the best and our dogs loved it.

Very well maintained park. New, updated facilities and very friendly people. This KOA was designed with big rigs in mind(I pull a 36-foot). I wish it was a little closer to Carlsbad, but it's very close to Brantly lake and Sitting Bull Falls. You won't regret staying here.

Vet nice park/host(esses)/facilities!! We'll worth the extra driving distance to the Caverns. "Thank you" Carlsbad KOA. We enjoyed our stay!!

We rented the deluxe cabin, it wasn't very clean. we cleaned it at the start of our stay. Two problems water pressure and TV. I called, someone came who said water pressure was normal and the tv problem didn't get resolved. when reservations made, I wasn't made aware we had to clean the cabin at time of checkout. I found out during our stay. we cleaned it again. Not a very relaxing stay.

Really far north of Carlsbad and even farther from Carlsbad caverns/ National park.

We had to leave after one night due to RV problems and we felt we should have been allowed a refund on the second night. We notified the campground at noon and felt they had ample time to resell our site.

I think for the area this is the best camp ground to see the sights. The facility is clean and up to date. the sites are very level and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and supportive. They serve a barbecue meal that is, well, not so good, this needs to be improved as the desk recommends it and for the price it needs to be fresh.

Men's showers weren't very hot! Staff was great - BBQ was excellent!

If you plan on actually tent camping here, DO NOT DO IT!!!! The tent area is small and cramped, the noise ordinance is not enforced and you are on top of eachother. The ladies inside are RUDE. Not helpful and di not opt in for the horrible bbq. It's disgusting and waaaay overpriced.
