This might seem unimportant to others, but there was an air-freshener in the camping cabins that was pretty strong smelling and made a sound about every half hour. The sound actually woke me up several times during the night and the smell was just too strong. That combined with several campers leaving/arriving at late hours didn't make for a very restful night. Otherwise, facilities nice overall.

This was a great KOA. The staff was very nice and helpful. The campground is beautiful and is set up to handle the desert environment. We really enjoyed the visit, and hope to visit again some time!

The KOA was great it was just further from Carlsbad Caverns than I expected. I loved the cabin and being away from town however. The staff was awesome, the facilities were very clean. Loved having the barbeque dinner delivered directly to the cabin. I would definitely stay here again. We looked around the area and this is definitely the best camping and RV park that I saw in the area.

Cute cabin, very clean. Convenient to have food prepared for us. Swung on front porch to watch sunset & stars. Liked the feeling of being out in the middle of nowhere, yet all the amenities.

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our cabin was wonderful and the kids loved the bunk beds. the food available for delivery at the campground was good and it was very nice to be able to borrow games and such from the front office. We will definitely be back! A special thank you to Diane for all your help and your smiling face.

The miniblinds broken, so we had to cover a window at night with our blanket. And the bathroom or sink smelled really bad. Seems like it possibly could of been a drain. Other than that, the stay was very nice. Most of the employess were really friendly (excluding two) We might go back next year.

Big plus with the nice bathrooms. This was our first trip using KOA campgrounds & cabins. The other KOA's gave 1 value card discount and 2 discounts for either cabins or RV spot. I know I should get 1 value card discount but not getting a discount for our RV spot is a deal breaker for not ever returning.

The KOA itself is very nice, very clean and well kept. However, we rented the Batcave and the water heater did not work, the handles in the shower fell off, we were not provided with any garbage bags and only one roll of toilet tissue. The pots and pans were covered in mineral deposits and only 2 small pans were usable. I wasn't very satisfied with the cabin. The staff was very nice and friendly.

Stayed in a Kamp Cottage. It was clean and well maintained. Had a great time.

My only complaint is the Internet service. The sign out front says hi speed Internet it is far from it. From both cabins I stayed in the Internet service was extremely slow or nonexistent . You need to bring your Internet service up to speed. Other than that everything else was great!

It was the first time I stay at a koa we had a wonderful stay. The only thing that would have made it great was if we would have been allowed to pay for a late check out and enjoy Sunday afternoon at the camp site.

Staff was very polite. Campground met our expectations.

The location was great! We enjoyed the BBQ and the cabin. The main complaint we had was that the WiFi was terrible.

Would have rated 5 stars, however the internet connectivity at this KOA is a bit lacking, constant disconnects and lack of proper coverage over the facility.

We planned a trip to Guadalupe National Park and decided to stay at the KOA in Carlsbad. We loved our cabin but it is over an hours drive to the National Park or the Caverns. That was the only drawback of the stay.

Came in late and left early so don't have a lot to say. Staff was nice and cabin very clean

Cabins were clean. Workers at KOA were VERY nice and helpful.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin and had plenty of room for all four of us and our 4-legged family member. The grounds were very clean as were all the facilities we encountered. The only regret we have is that we planned our trip so fully that we didn't have time to spend more at the campground for relaxation. We hope to be back to this part of the state in the near future and visit this KOA again.
