Cabin Reviews

The hosts and staff were very helpful and caring. The cabin was clean, cozy and comfortable. The entire campground was incredibly well maintained and had all the amenities one needs on a trip.

BEST KOA campsite we have ever stayed at. The cabin was so clean and they even turned the air on before we got there so it would be cool. Talk about some good BBQ, and they even delivered it to us! Loved our stay here and will definitely be coming back!!

Very welcoming! The cabin was very cute and accommodated my big family. Cabin could've been a little cleaner for what the price per night is; thick cobwebs in almost every room that I cleaned myself, spiders everywhere, some pots had dead bugs in them, and we found mouse droppings. We asked to check out a little late and we were told absolutely not. Cute place, but has some quirks.

The cabin was clean and perfect size for our stay and the price was even a better surprise. Pet friendly with 2 doggy parks that were well lit at night . We felt very safe and secure at all times . The staff was very good at what they do . We will come back .

Let me start out by saying the property was great and the people that were working were great. We booked our stay for one night. 8-14-8-15. But we decided to leave. The cabin we got was very cute and In great condition. But immediately as soon as we got inside I could smell urine. I did think it was possibly the air conditioner. But either way the smell was really bad. My husband made up the twi

We called ahead about our late night arrival and the staff accommodated us very nicely. The staff was friendly. This was our first time at a KOA and we were very impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin and grounds and all the amenities and available activities. If we ever pass through the Carlsbad area again we will definitely stay here.

The cabin we stayed in was clean, cozy and nicely appointed. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. The grounds were well maintained and we felt very safe. Kids enjoyed the pool and rental bikes. We ordered a bbq meal in our day of arrival which was delicious. Thank you for a great stay.

The campground is great but a little to far from town.

Wished we could have stayed longer. Nice people. They have BBQ dinners they'll deliver to your cabin. Ask them about it. Sadly, we missed that. It smelled great. The only negative was how narrow the doorway to the bathroom was. It was fine for us, but may be a problem for heavier people. Still a 5 star. Great, friendly & would definitely recommend & return!

Park was nice, clean, staff was a little unfriendly. Advertised BBQ delivered to your site if ordered by 7pm. Ordered at 6 & was told they were not able to fill the order. Very disappointing as next town was over 20 miles away. We were in a cabin so we had very limited supplies.

Really enjoyed our cabin stay. Comfortable for a family of four. Only downside was we were told to bring linens, but were not told that there would not be dishes. Even basic dishes were supplied in the other two cabins the rest of our family was staying in.

A drive from the caverns, but a great place to stay! Loved all the activities they had for kids and the staff was very friendly! It was quiet at night. We were very happy with the cabin we rented.

Cabins without bathrooms are farther from the bathroom than cabins with bathrooms. Quite a way further from Caverns than Web site seemed to indicate.

We always have a great time when we stay here. This is the 4th time we have stayed at the Carlsbad KOA, and are already planning another trip there before school starts again. FYI: best BBQ I've had in a long time!

We had a wonderful time at the campgrounds. Office personnel were friendly. Very quiet. We loved it.

We had a great time at the Carlsbad KOA! The Deluxe Studio cabin we stayed in was nice & clean. All the KOA staff were very friendly and helpful! I would strongly recommend this KOA to everyone that's going to the Carlsbad area.

Making reservations at a cabin at the KOA allowed our family to get together to spend time visiting, eating, and playing! The pool and recreation center was great. Our two girls (age 9) felt very at home and enjoyed the playground and the freedom to move about on the grounds. The cottontails and birds were also a hit! Beautiful view of the sunrise and the evening sky.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Answered any questions that came up. Helped us with the local attractions too! The grounds are well kept. Bathrooms/Showers were kept clean. Friday nite S'mores are ALWAYS welcome! Fun activities for the families on the Fourth of July even. We'll be back!

Great overall, but in 3 days of trying, I never had water hotter than tepid for my shower in women's side. Men in my group all had hot water. Every time.

Pleasant campground; clean and quiet. Good base camp for the caverns and guadalupe mountains.
Jul 04, 2015
Very nice. Clean, organized, friendly staff. Planned activities for fathers day. Tons of information about Carlsbad.

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.

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

Loved this place. The view was amazing and the people were very helpful.

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 :)

Very nice park with helpful staff
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.
