We like staying at the KOA cabins but I will not be staying in any more cabins with the futon option. It was not comfortable and did not get a good night's sleep. The rest of the cabin was nice with the little kitchenette.

Nice cabin. Nice to have kitchen and bathroom with shower. Problem was with bed . Bed in dire need of upgrading. You would think with the price being charged a better bed would be provided! Staff friendly and helpful. Grounds very beautiful. We stayed 2 nights and had a good time.

My whole family enjoyed it, its the 1st time we stay at a koa. Next time we would like to stay in a cabin that has kitchen/ bath. It was very relaxing. Thank you!

This was our first experience with KOA and the kids and I loved it! The staff was amazing, informative and attentive. The cabins and pool were clean and well maintained. The game room with the four sided ping pong table was a favorite for my kids, as was the Friday night smore cookout. The wildlife included bunnies, roadrunners, and quail and kept the kids entertained.

Disappointed in advertisement for fresh on site barbecue when it was precooked microwaved 15 minutes per order. Clean and quiet.

We had an incredible stay at Carlsbad KOA. The staff was very warm and friendly, and the amenities were everything we could have wanted. I look forward to coming back and staying with them again!

My daughter and her family stayed in a cabin and truly enjoyed their visit. Problem with the AC kept popping the breaker. Also had an carbo monixide alarm go off.

Pretty far from the Caverns. Oil or petroleum odors sweep over the park and are not good. Park itself is very nice, clean, well kept up. Folks running are very friendly.

Took them 20 minutes to find a key to the room....

The staff was friendly and helpful. The Starman presentation was out of this world!! Our cabin was clean and comfortable . The barbeque couldn't have been better. We will be back again and recommending it to our friends!!

I was unhappy that my cabin door jammed and I got locked out of my cabin for an hour. This was late at night and I had to wake my neighbor to borrow phone and get emergency number. The emergency number on your outgoing message is disconnected. I was also disappointed with the number of spiders and spiderwebs in my cabin. My son was scared to sleep on the bunk bed because of all of the web's under.

There was not any lighting walking from our cabin to the bathrooms and it was a very long way. The stay was otherwise nice.

Nice clean relaxing atmosphere!! Definitely will be back!!!

The rec room was great, bathrooms clean, and 1 of the workers was friendly. We stayed in a camping cabin that was VERY far away from the bathrooms. I was a little apprehensive about having to walk so far in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. We were charged $10 extra because our son was 15. We have stayed in KOA cabins in many states and all had children free to 17.

Excellent customer service, wonderful KOA!

The cabin was very comfortable, and the only problem (fridge not cooling) was resolved quickly and politely. We were generously compensated for any lost time or inconvenience caused. Kids loved the playground and pool!

Our cabin really needed some tlc, also an rotten animal smell from underneath. $4 bag of ice is crazy. Clean grounds, wish they had some more activities for kids. Wasn't the KOA we excepted from previous stays in IL and San Antonio.

Clean, quiet, friendly staff. They smoke their own brisket here, for dinner, it was excellent.

This was such an amazing place to stay! Our boys loved the pool and playground. We were able to enjoy nearby Carlsbad Caverns and Sitting Bull Falls. The staff were super friendly, and there were bunnies hopping around all over the place. We would definitely stay here again, and we highly recommend it to others!

We rented a cabin for the night. The AC was not powerful enough for the small two room cabin. Only one power outlet and this campground is almost an hour away from the caverns. The wifi did not work. We have stayed at other KOA cabins that had better cabins for a lower price.

Everything about our stay was great.... except for the flies in our cabin when we got there! This is our second time too stay with you, and we will be back! Sunsets are amazing!!!

This was by far the best RV park experience I have ever had. The cabin was clean and comfortable, the kids loved the playground and pool and the smoked brisket was great.

This was our first stay at a KOA and I must say I was completely impressed with cleanliness and how friendly and helpful all the staff were I would recommend this KOA to family and friends anytime and i have to say again your staff's customer service skills were outstanding

The cabin was nice, we appreciated the washer and dryers but there were so many flies. Don't know if it was the time of year or what.
Jun 26, 2017
we had a late arrival at cabin. no light left on for us so hard to locate. light in cabin did not work either so we camped in the dark. called to complain next day & response was we didn't pull light string. Incorrect; we pulled strings & flipped switches ad nauseum & finally camped in the dark. Only bad stay we ever had @ KOA

There were tons of flies in our cabin. There was not a tight seal on the door so when we returned from dinner about 10 more had found their way in. Other than that, it was nice.

We were a late check-in and early checkout, but the staff was very helpful and the campground cabin clean and comfortable.
Jun 23, 2017
We had a late check-in but were still shown to our cabin, the air had been turned on so the cabin was cool. The cabin was clean, the bathrooms and showers were clean....i am looking forward to staying at Carlsbad KOA again!

The facilities were very nice, but they were not very clean. There was an abundance of flies as well. Don't expect to use a picnic table in the AM. They have to water the grass, so the tables are soaked and hold pools of water. There was also a foul odor the morning we were there.
Jun 21, 2017
Love the new playground and 4-way ping pong in the game room! The BBQ is great, too. Wish our cabin had had a fly swatter.

Great place because of great people.
