Well run, neat and clean facility. Owners are very hands-on and run a nice park.

We had reservations here for a week to see the sights but our refrigerator stopped working and we couldn't find a mobile repair in the area. They refunded our fees so we could leave early. We were very grateful!

Enjoyed our stay but a little far from the caverns. No hot water in the showers away from the office.

This was the 4th time staying here, might not go back. Had a run in with a KOA worker that stays in the park, small misunderstanding but he kept staring at our site like was looking for something to complain on. I have stayed here 4 times with no issues but I might not go back. I can find another place that is cheaper and offers more. For $70 a night I can find a place more welcoming.

Beautiful park, just not where we thought it was. Far from town and far from the Carlsbad Caverns.
Oct 28, 2016
While this is a large, seemingly well-equipped KOA, it is 1 hour away from the Carlsbad Caverns. WIFI signal was weak. Cable TV signal wouldn't work with our new RV and new TV. No problem with cable at other RV parks we've stayed in. If we return to the area again, we would stay in a RV park closer to Carlsbad Caverns.

Campground was clean and well taken care of. WIFI was very poor could not stay on the internet even though we were connected to there server. they offered nightly dinners. their ad said offered till 6:15 Called or went to office about 5:20 and they were sold out both days that we were there. We went sight seeing and did not return till after 5 PM Nice campground though, level lot, and grass.

2nd stay @ this KOA. Terrific staff, great sites, well taken care of, LIVED Starman John. Drawbacks; excessive flys, more shade needed (trees have been planted for future shade), nice to have good meals available but variety would be nice.
Oct 26, 2016
Great location far enough off the highway and close to the major attractions of the national park and caverns. Staff really helpful and friendly. Great facilities and sites. Loved Starman John talking us through the stars at night. Only downside is in the morning the site smells given its close to the oil fields, air cleared within a few hours. KOA team do a great job here THANK YOU

This is one of the nicest KOA's we've stayed in. Wide sites and spaces between sites. Some trees and well kept grass between sites. Excellent facilities. Clean and neat in every respect. Enjoyed our brief stay.

We arrived late after a day in Carlsbad cavern and had the best BBQ meal delivered to our RV. The RV park was very clean VERY roomy in maneuvering your RV. I wish we could of stayed longer. We were never able to get online with their hotspot but that was okay our time was short. Will we stay there again... YES!!!!
