Helpful staff, nice atmosphere and clean bathrooms! We enjoyed our night in the cabin. A little bit farther from Carlsbad Caverns than expected.

It was comfortable and less expensive than a hotel in town. The cabin was a little dirty, otherwise everything was great. The staff was friendly and informative. There was plenty to do in the area. The BBQ made for an easy meal one night, they even delivered to our cabin.

Reason for not 100%, No water pressure for 5 day stay. Flush toilet and water stops coming out of sink faucet. could not use shower or tub water so slow would no turn on instant gas water heater. When I complained they said it was just the way it is in that cabin. No attempt to fix or anything. The outside faucet ran a sprinkler just fine something is wrong with the cabin itself.

We had a fantastic time at Carlsbad KOA! The people were delightful, the campground was clean and well organized, and the the bathrooms were immaculate. The pool was small but very clean. Don't forget to try the BBQ, it was wonderful!

It was 109 degrees and at 8:00 when it was cooling off to be outside and families were coming out they closed the pool and said it normally closes at 7:00 but he was keeping it open since there were people in the pool. Also at 8:00 the game room closed. What do you do from 8 until dark with kids when it's 100 plus??? And you can't rent the cool bikes after 7:30 when it cools off to enjoy them

Camping cabin was cute and cozy. Next to pool. Bathrooms and showers very clean. Very quiet location and friendly staff.

Cabin was super duper clean. The management was very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a wonderful stay and options other than overpriced hotels in Carlsbad! Wish the pool was open later...

Very friendly and clean. Nicely landscaped and family friendly. We had a great time! A bit of a drive from carlsbad but close to living desert state park.

We stayed in a camping cabin. Everything about this KOA was top-notch. The staff are very friendly, the grounds are very well-maintained, the cabin was very clean. I felt very safe here. One of the best!

Our cabin was amazing! The staff were friendly and very helpful. We arrived after closing and appreciate the simplicity of checking in. We were greatly impressed with the driving ease in the campground. We have stayed in campgrounds where finding your cabin was a challenge. We fell in love with this campground and will recommend it as the perfect place to stay to our friends.

Just me and my husband stayed in the delux cabin for our 2 year anniversary!! We loved it!!
Jun 17, 2014
We decided on the cabin with the restroom. Although, the facility was so nice and clean that it wouldn't of really mattered. The cabin was perfect. It was my daughter's favorite part of the trip. It was spacious with everything a hotel room offer but in a cabin, plus, a bench swing outside with your own BBQ/fire pit and picnic bench. I would definitely stay here again.

Staff was friendly and informative. We stayed in a 2-room cabin. Very clean and cute. Included a little front porch swing. Bathroom facilities were convenient and clean. We enjoyed our stay.

Very comfortable stay in a cabin. We wish the pool stayed open later though! The food we had delivered was good. Unfortunately our smoke alarm malfunctioned at 2:30 a.m. But was quickly resolved by the overnight handyman.

Great park a little far from the caverns
Jun 09, 2014
The campground is kept up very well. Our cabin was clean and provided what we needed. The location is a little far from Carlsbad (12 miles or so) and because it is so far out it would be great if the store/office had more expanded hours. 7 pm seemed a little early to close both the store and the pool when it stays hot and light until after 8. Carlsbad Caverns is 45 minutes away.

We were uninformed and disappointed that the pool closed at 7:00, which in the summer is very early. Had it been printed online or in the check in information we would have rearranged some plans. Other than that it was wonderful

The cabin was great. People helpful and friendly. Amenities great. For motorcycles need to park in the entrance (behind the cabin- we were in lobo) so we don't have to drive over all the loose rocks. Rocks also cut tires

The cabin we stayed in was clean and comfortable; unfortunately, it was right by the entrance and exit which made for some loud rock crushing late at night and early in the morning. The air conditioner and fridge worked great. The sulphur smell was almost unbearable, but that was all around the area, not just the campsite. Overall, it worked out great for my daughter and me.

Awesome campground. Best Bathrooms I have ever seen at a KOA!

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.

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.
May 04, 2014
the lodge i stayed in was a nice trailer.The only down fall to my stay was the fact that i had Paid my rent for the next month when my job was ended and they will only refund half of the 1850.00
May 01, 2014
