The KOA itself is clean, friendly and we had no problems but sadly ya'll are in the middle of a fracking district so it just smells like natural gas when the wind isn't blowing... so not sure I'd recommend to others, but you have good prices for the area and the cabins were cute! Also the water for showering isn't very nice, my hair even with conditioner was dry and course which never happens.

The entire staff was amazing! We stayed in the deluxe cabin and were so impressed how clean it was. Great place for families.

We originally got a tent site but due to unusually strong winds, our tent poles shattered. The staff was extremely helpful in getting my family into a little cabin, which my children enjoyed. I would have rated 5 stars but there was only 3 showers available because the main showers were under renovation.

Very impressed with friendly welcome and service. Made use of laundry facilities (erxcellent) abd BBQ meal delivery (very good). Highly recommended.

Great staff, very clean facilities, cabin is looks brand new. We loved the fire pit outside. It was soooo nice to have heat in the cabin because it was in the 30's outside. Thanks for a great stay!

The only thing I would recommend changing is getting a mirror over the sunk in our cabin. That forced me to shave in the shared restrooms. Other than that we enjoyed our cabin and the delivered barbecue dinners were awesome! Had a great time!

Beautiful well-cared for park. I would have appreciated someone checking in on me during the blizzard. I travel alone and since I was stuck for several days and could not leave due to heavy snow and drifts, a bit of personal contact would have been welcome.

Enjoyed the cabins, appreciated the great customer service, and well-equipped common areas. Had hoped to have an oven in the lodge for our extended stay, might make sure your website is clear on that point. Otherwise it was great and hope to come back.

It was so welcoming to walk into my warm cabin. Thanks for turning the heat on in anticipation of my arrival!

Natural gas smell in the area made me sick. No fan in the room to get the smell out. The a/c unit had acid on the plug so I couldn't use that to help either. Other than that, pretty nice area.

We had a great time.

We really appreciated the knowledge of the staff. We had no idea there were so many things to do in the area! Clean and friendly! Will definitely be back!

Staff super friendly and helpful. Cabin was perfect for our weekend trip to Carlsbad Caverns.

Wonderful stay. The AC wasnt working right so went up to the office. The maintenance man was there before we could get back to the cabin and had it working. Very friendly staff and a well kept camp ground. We would come back again!

Great stay. Cabin was clean. Everyone was helpful. We only wish the hours at the store and from staff were an hour early - opening at 8am or 8:30pm rather than 9am. Other than this, all was great!

Very clean and quiet. Pet friendly. New laundry facility.

We stayed in a cabin, it was clean & in good condition, as were the grounds--very nice. They were accommodating with a 50A plug to charge our EV, too. (The reason we stayed here.) 2 complaints: 1) It sometimes smells of the refinery/oil fields to the North, and 2) don't arrive after 7PM and hope to get going early the next morning, as you can't checkin until 9AM. But we'd stay here again.

This campground was so nice! The bathrooms were always very clean, the staff was super friendly and our cabin was awesome! The pool was great along with the playground for the kids! We'd definitely stay here again!

A bit pricey for KOA but very nice.

Well kept campsite, away from the highway so there'should no noise. They offered great nightly activities, sadly we were only there one night! Bathrooms and laundry room were very clean. This was our last night on our camping trip, and when we arrived in Carlsbad it was raining and was supposed to rain all night. We upgraded to a small cabin to save our sanity, and it was perfect!

We stayed in a camping cabin that had a bathroom. There was also a microwave and a frig. The staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the fact that they had BBQ that you could order and have delivered to your cabin.

Issues with our cabin key while we were there. Not resolved.

We had a great stay and the staff was extremely helpful. Great people there, Jim was really outgoing, he had the service dog. Didn't get a last name.

The KOA employee's were nice and accomodating. The Cabin and Restrooms were clean, the KOA park was nice... My wife really enjoyed the Coy pond, said it was a nice relaxing spot to sit and read... She said this was her favorite KOA Park so far...

It was our second time at Carlsbad KOA..the managers are friendly and helpful, the amenities (bathrooms, pool, camp store) are very nice and our deluxe cabin was clean, cozy and perfect! Even the landscaping is beautiful and well maintained. We wish all campgrounds were this nice!

We enjoyed the accommodations. Sad to notice dead bats at the wind turbine each morning, the price we pay for green energy. Also, we were disappointed that the office didn't open until 9am, we hit the road early on trips

Very nice campground. All workers were very pleasant. Nice facilities and clean. Good to be outside of town and country like. It was a plus to serve food at the campground since we were in a cabin. Our food was excellent. Glad we stayed here

We had an amazing stay. The camping cabin was a wonderful treat!! We usually would have camped with our pop-up but had time constraints that would have made it very stressful and difficult. The cabin allowed us to enjoy the camping experience with the convenience of a hotel. We even had wildlife living near our cabin, a little bunny!!

Great place. be sure to order dinner when making reservation
