Nice wide sites and streets. Our doggies love the clean, grassy fenced dog pens and we love that you provide pet cleanup bags.

Very friendly. Very clean. Restrooms and showers were outstanding. They served meals which was nice since they were out of town. Wildlife was great.

A wonderful campground

This was one of the best KOA's we have ever stayed at. The sites were large and level, the bathrooms were sparking (as they advertise) and the service was wonderful.

Great place: clean, very organized and they even deliver BBQ to your site. Too bad we could not stay longer, but will be back...

Very nice campground - hard to evaluate since I only stayed one night. I would stay here again.

without a doubt the cleanest campground we have been to. Nice space, great place to run the dogs. The BBQ delivery to campsite was excellent. Only draw back is distance to Carlsbad Caverns, more than anticipated.

We arrived after hours, without a reservation. The night registration was very easy, everything we needed was spelled out on the registration papers. Beautiful KOA.

Very relaxing stay. Clean everything -bathrooms and biggest laundry room I have ever seen in a campground. Grounds immaculate. And fish pond and hall of history great. Wonderful stay! Oh I forgot to add the great BBQ dinner which was reasonablypriced.

The park was clean and well maintained. The restrooms and showers were also very clean and well stocked. We had some issues with our camper and the staff was very helpful.

Perhaps really great for families, but internet is important for me, and it was not usable at all!
Sep 05, 2015
So clean with a very friendly staff who helped us find tire service to fix our flat. Thank you.

We stayed here in our fifth wheel for 3 days while visiting local attractions including Carlsbad Caverns. This is one of the nicest RV Parks we have ever stayed in. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were immaculate. We had a barbecue dinner delivered to our site one day, and it was delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

I can see why they are number one rated. Our stay was seamless

This was just an overnight stay, but we have stayed here in the past and found it to be a great base to explore the area. Easy in and out of the CG, nice roomy and level pull-throughs and utilities worked well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Grounds are very neat. Prepared meals to purchase are a nice option.

Super clean. Wonderful barbecue. Extra nice restroom and showers.

Such a nice, well kept place! They had smores for the kids on Friday night and stargazing with astronomer Saturday night. It's a great place!

Best place in the Carlsbad area. Staff is super to deal with and very very helpful. I will stay there again when in the Carlsbad area.

after a day of travel, having a great bq dinner served at my coach is great.

Though it's a distance from the caverns, we found this spot to be clean with friendly staff. The bathrooms were spotless and huge! The view of the desert sky was awesome

We're new to KOA camping. This past ten days we stayed at KOA Kingman, KOA Carlsbad, and KOA Tucson. They were all very nice and we'll be back. Carlsbad had nice restrooms and showers, though I wish they were a little flexible on the cleaning time. The people were friendly and though we really didn't use the amenities other than shower and laundry, they had a nice pool and plenty of security.

Ad stated short distance to Carlsbad caverns 40+miles is not short
Aug 22, 2015
Fine for overnight stay, location looks a little creepy, get used to rooster crowing and trains, didn't bother us. Owners seemed very nice. Didn't use facilities, but pool and playground looked clean.


Are you sure your thinking of the right campground, we aren't near any trains, and I don't know of any roosters anywhere near the park.

Great campground! Very clean and well maintained. Enjoyed the covered patio area at our site, as well as the swimming pool. Also enjoyed the BBQ dinners that were delivered straight to your site...delicious! And the star watching activity was fun for everyone. Thanks for a great stay!

Great staff and clean park. Could not have been a better place to stay!
Aug 19, 2015
We loved everything about the Carlsbad KOA. The staff was outstanding! Very friendly, courteous and helpful. The bathrooms and pool were clean and well kept. The BBQ sandwiches that they sell were delicious. It was great after driving all day then setting up the camper not to worry about what we were having for dinner. They even offered to deliver the BBQ to our campsite. Our dogs loved the dog pa

First time we stayed at a KOA and loved it! Will definitely be planning another trip back there.
Aug 19, 2015
Good location for visiting the caverns, about 40 min away.
Aug 19, 2015
The bathrooms were clean and the people were nice. The sites were clean, and it was dog friendly. But the Internet was horribly slow. Also, it really shouldn't be called the Carlsbad KOA as it was quite a drive out of the city and 45 minutes from the caves.
Aug 19, 2015
Dual K9 areas and very large lots. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

Staff was friendly, helpful, and help make our stay great. Facilities, bathrooms, and pool are well maintained and clean. Great spots each with a nice shade tree. LOVE the dog yards with sitting bench and shade trees. Excellent stay.
Aug 17, 2015
A great camp ground. Slot of extras. Very little trees. When it's hot it would be nice to have some shade at your camp site
