Cabin Reviews

Jul 12, 2013
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.

THE GOOD: The cabin was clean and everything worked. The overall campground was well kept. THE BAD: There was an almost constant sewage odor in the air outside. I think it was coming from the large lake of sewage at the back of the property and we had the rotten luck of being down wind of it. The cabin, while nice, is very over-priced. The food they offer was also very over-priced.

The park was clean and well maintained, but my cabin was a long walk from the bathhouse. too far for a late night walk. The campground was to far out from any town, both ways.

We loved the setting, and security. The Bat Cave needs a little maintenance--gas cooktop and faucets, etc!

Mostly it was top rate! There was a small ant problem in our deluxe lodge and the wi-fi was very slow to the point of unusable (except in the rec room). But the accommodations were awesome, the people were very friendly and helpful, pool was clean and refreshing, and the grounds were shockingly quiet,even during the daytime. Loved the dog park, but the grass outside of the dog area cut his paws.A-

My only comment tub down with no indication of when it would be up. Also, Sunday breakfast advertised but not delivered. Otherwise a very nice place.

The staff was great about letting us in early because my husband was sick. But when we went to sleep that night these small black long gated bugs came out and was crawling all over us so we left at 10 that night and went to find a motel. If you know what these bugs were please let us know

it was great, we love to camp and normally a tent works perfect for us, but now we are spoiled and want this service all the time

The pool hours are inconvenient - it closed shortly after we arrived and opened after we left. The cabin that we rented was very hot. The air conditioner did not work, and we couldn't open the windows.

While the cabin was very nice, none of the "peripherals" worked. for example, the wi-fi didn't work, nor did the tv. Every tv channel was nothing but snow.


The wifi is the best we can get out in this area between Artesia and Carlsbad. The cable issue has been fixed.

This Koa was easy to get to and was beautifully maintained and very quiet. I would definitely recommend it to anyone whether staying in an RV or one of the cabins.
