This is a great KOA but should not be called 'Carlsbad KOA' as it is nearly 20 miles from Carlsbad!

Very nice.Would love to stay a month but $600.00 plus metered electric is way over priced for winter months (no pool).The water is not good.At check in, staff should tell you about the water & you have to use bottled water for coffee & ect.The staff is super friendly, the sites are very nice.Very clean park.Dog run needs gravel cause of burrs.If monthly rate was $400.00 a month, would stay

This was one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Very clean, quiet, off of the highway and very roomy. Thanks!!!

Nice people and campground. The only reason I rated it a 4star is it is pretty pricey and does not have a hot tub or fitness equipment - things that might justify a high price. Would stay again however.

We loved the space between units, very nice laundry and other facilities. Having meals on site a real bonus.

We arrived on the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend; ample parking prior to checkin; our space was spacious! lots of room between campsites. Quiet and secure, we felt safe, staff very friendly.

Great place to stay if visiting Carlsbad Caverns and Roswell. The campground is located halfway between the two. Very friendly and helpful staff. The grounds are clean and well cared for. We had a deluxe site with a covered patio and swing which we enjoyed. Dog park was grassy and clean. Would stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here while visiting relatives in Carlsbad. The campground is clean and has nice features like superior sites with patios, shelters, etc. I particularly was impressed with the food delivery option. Bathrooms were very clean.

My first impression of our campsite was We have so much room! We had not had sites wider than 25 in months, so I felt liberated. The campground is in the middle of nowhere, about 20 miles from the town of Carlsbad and 20 miles from Artesia. That is not necessarily a bad thing. The sites are level, gravel but with a strip of grass between each site. Theres a nice table and a firepit. Cle

Nice facility Staff is excellent and grounds are clean. Smell of Oil Wells, for surrounding 40 miles though is a little tough to deal with,

This campground is listed as being 13 miles N of Carlsbad. It is 22 miles which makes it 52 miles from the caverns! The smell of natural gas is horrific & constant. Do not come here!
Oct 20, 2014
The park is maintained perfectly and the spaces for the big rigs are huge. Make sure the you order dinner from the park. The BBQ is delicious!! Will absolutely stay again.

Bob, made our stay extra special. We were renting an RV and new to the whole experience and Bob took the time to answer our questions about hooking up and certain RV etiquette. If all the KOA Campgrounds have someone as nice and truly helpful as Bob you are doing great!

It was so great two weeks ago, we stayed again and will be back, I am sure.

This park is very hard to rate. The park is excellent in almost everything, but at 8 pm at night both nights we stayed there was a persistent horrible stink throughout the whole park. I don't know if it was sewer or oil refinery. Without this smell this is near a 10 park. With smell it is a zero. Verify when you book that the smell is gone.
