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 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.

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

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

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.

Deluxe cabin 6/15: We came late/left early. Women I spoke to was friendly. When I arrived everything was where the women had told me for late arrivals. Down side: The blinds in the deluxe cabin were broken so there was No privacy. The website stated bring linens however there were NO towels for showering. The A/C would make a terrible noise throughout night. Bathroom door hard to close/loud.

Awesome place and staff! Great activities too. Thanks for a wonderful time.

The cabin was clean, cute, and the staff were friendly. We left before the office had opened and looked for a dropbox for the key. We ended up leaving the key in the locked cabin. Instructions on leaving early should be included in your information sheet. Especially enjoyed the numerous bunnies and the stars. Thank you.
