The hosts were great. Bathrooms were very clean & well kept.

This place is remote. It is well put together. However, the wi-fi is poor. The park was about 1/3 full with poor reception, that kept fading out. In order to make my next day's res I had to get up in the middle of the night so I could get on the Internet. Needs fixing. Gary Cahoon

The stay there was very pleasant but it is a place where a lot of people stay while they are working for the local oil companies so at 6-7 am the park is very noisy .pick up trucks leaving out of only one exit,warming up they trucks for 10 minutes before they leave. My only request would be a different exit for them. The staff was so great., bathrooms amazing and the same with the laundry.

The amenities are nice and so are all of the people who work there. This is a huge campground and it was nearly full. There are lots of oil field workers staying there, and they come and go (seemingly) throughout the night. Also, the traffic on the nearby freeway is non-stop semi-trucks. This makes for a difficult nights' sleep.

Carlsbad Koa has to be the nicest RV park that I have ever stayed in. The employees were extremely courtious, and helpful. I hope I can return very soon.

Only problem I had was the dryers were very insufficient. They didn't warm up, so had to get some one to look at the problem.

The staff is very friendly and they keep the grounds in very good conditions. I would recommend this campground to anyone and would definitely stay again if I was in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay. There were plenty of things to do at the Campground. We also really enjoyed the food option; it was really convienient and good food.

The KOA is in the middle of no where. Mens shower area poor. Restrooms closed prior to posted hours. Lack of signage on approach.However friendly staff and grounds very well kept.

Very nice open, spacious campground. Very quiet and friendly and helpful staff.

Clean, nice staff; however, b/c of impending BAD weather, for our safely we elected to leave one day early. This KOA would not refund one nights stay b/c we didn't give a 24 - hr notice. We did NOT know about the sleet and snow moving in until that morning ... we drive a 37' motorhome pulling a large - sized car . . . Not good driving on snow.

Excellent for overnight, facilities outstanding, staff very friendly- appreciated parking RV on your property while we did some sightseeing. Only drawback is distance from Carlsbad.
Dec 29, 2014
Clean facilities. Nice staff. Felt safe. Only cons are was very windy and 12 miles from any town. Would stay again.

Dec 25, 2014
we love this koa great people two large fenced dog runs with grass the only downside was around the perimeter of the koa was a dog walk area but there were many many people who did not pick up after there dogs so walking was a bit tricky

It would be nice if they could do something about the wind ;) Other than that, our stay was nice.
Dec 18, 2014
Facility is great. Option to buy a delicious dinner is very helpful. Staff is very knowledgable about the area and very helpful.
Dec 17, 2014
Nice large sites but too far from anything and the needle grass ruined dog walks and got everywhere around the coach

Clean, large & level sites, courteous staff, pretty far from town.
Dec 13, 2014
Staff is very nice, sites are nice, large pull-thrus. This park is immacculate! laundry room is very clean. Park is far enough from highway that you do not hear it. Thanks for a great stay.
Dec 13, 2014
Everyone pleasant, helpful. Told us about things to do in the area and everything the park has to offer
Dec 12, 2014
This is a great KOA but should not be called 'Carlsbad KOA' as it is nearly 20 miles from Carlsbad!
Dec 12, 2014
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!!!
Dec 09, 2014
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.
Dec 08, 2014
Very comfortable sith great people running it. Very nice and helpful.
Dec 08, 2014
We loved the space between units, very nice laundry and other facilities. Having meals on site a real bonus.
Dec 01, 2014
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. Friendly people. Outstanding dinners (wish I could cook ribs like that)

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.
