Cabin Reviews

Sep 17, 2013
The hosts were friendly, the cabin was clean, the surroundings were tidy. The cabin was quite small, but we were thankful for a place to fit 5 of us on a tight budget!

Very nice. Had info about caverns.

This was a great place to stay. My family enjoyed the pool, which was a great way to cool down in the New Mexico heat. The camping area was really nice although the flies really enjoy the wind barrier. We also stayed in a cabin which was a nice change after 4 nights in a tent. The restrooms were clean and very nice. We will plan to stay here again.

It was a quick stop on a long motorcycle trip. It compleated our perfect trip. KOA is the place to stay.

The people who work/run this KOA were very helpful. They left the light on for us because we arrived late. They opened their office early because we were running on Texas time. These were some of the sweetest people we have come into contact with. We loved the cabin and the campground. I loved the doggy playground! Just wished we had brought our dogs with us so they could have enjoyed it!

Toilet in our "deluxe" cabin did not work. We asked to have the price reduced $20 to the price of a cabin without a bathroom and were basically told "not gonna happen" and "have ourselves a nice day" by the owner! Would NOT stay here again and would recommend that other travelers try the other RV park in Carlsbad or the RV park in Artesia. This was our worst camping experience ever!


This issue was fixed as soon as it was brought to our attention.

Don't say you have cable tv if you can't even see a picture on the tv. Could never log on to the free wifi. In my opinion if it does not work then don't say you have it. The people there were nice but were no help in resolving cable or wifi issues. My next stay for the rate I paid I will stay at the HI Express.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The campground is well taken care of. This was our second stay and will certainly stay again if in the area. Easy drive to/from the caverns. We stayed in the deluxe cabin and it was like staying in a hotel. Thank you for a pleasant and welcoming experience.

great time, very clean and very quiet. I like the idea that they serve meals since resturants are pretty far. I would stay there again...

Super KOA! The staff were really welcoming and friendly - they delivered a great evening meal to our cabin - much welcomed after a long days drive. The kabin was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Great pool and table tennis for the kids.

Not up to par with our KOA experiences. Our picnic table needed to be replaced (was very warped and worn). We also had to share a fire pit with the neighbor cabin. I asked about that, the worker told me the other cabins were all booked. We saw no one else there at night or the next morning. Sorry, your reputation has gone down.

We absolutely love staying at this KOA - it is so pretty and so clean and the people are so nice. We stay in the Kabins and I swear it is so nice, it makes me want to buy an RV!

Decent location and friendly staff-my only complaint is that the tent sites are either right next to the playground and and the main road in (can you say noise) or a "village" that has some nice sites but they are so close together under a shelter that it is like you are living in a small house with your extended family!

The kamp employees were very kind and helpful and the cabin was so clean and relaxing. I will definitely be staying at more KOAs in the future!

The people were very nice and the facilities good. However, the flies were very bad...

Our stay was amazing! The cabin was clean and had everything we could possibly need. The staff was seriously the best! Very nice and accommodating. We loved renting the bikes, the pool was small but wet and cool. We had a great time at our KOA!

We stayed in a Deluxe Kabin. The cabin was clean and big enough for what we needed and wanted. The pool was nice.

Really enjoyed my stay here and the cabin, pool, the friendly staff. my son loved the smores and he was super glad to meet other kids to play with. I was glad to have fully equipped kitchen. Only problem, there wasn't extra toilet paper, trash bags and enough coffee filters. But overall great place to stay. Also, liked the great barbecue sandwich from the menu.

Excellent facility with friendly staff. Would highly recommend to travelers pass through. Looking forward to another visit. Thanks for your hospitality.

Facilities are clean and quiet. Rates are good. Internet is not. Should not advertise as "high speed internet". Half the time couldn't get on at all due to so many people using the connection.

Considering the location, the campground was very nice. Office staff was very friendly, the cabin we stayed at was clean and comfortable, other facilities were in top notch condition. The only downside was that the bathroom was not ventilated enough so it was extremely hot and humid in it.

Stayed in one of their cabins that had a bathroom. Super friendly staff. Really nice cabin- nicely maintained and clean. Good rates when compared to the hotel rates in neighboring Carlsbad.
