Love this park, the only complaint of course is the smell at night. Other than that the location is great and the staff is too.

Absolutely the best KOA experience we have ever had. The camp was very clean, easy to move about in and staffed by friendly, professional folks. The BBQ delivered to the door was astonishing!! The dog park was a BIG bonus!!!

Travelled from San Francisco to Houston, now headed back, these are the cleanest, nicest bathrooms/showers I've seen on the whole trip! Nicely organized and maintained park, thanks!

water really needs attention as it smells awful

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our water is very hard with lots of minerals. Although less than ideal, the water is certainly potable.

The only problem we had was the smell and the water. We made ice the night we got there and it had a fowl smell. Other than that is was ok.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The smell in the air comes from the oil fields in the area. The water is very hard with lots of minerals. Certainly potable however. Unfortunately we can't control either one. We are happy our guest enjoyed everything else.

Nice and clean and quiet. A little misleading on the distance to the caverns however

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry our guest felt we were misleading. Our address is a Carlsbad address, but Google maps will correctly show our location right in between Carlsbad and Artesia. There is no attempt at hiding this information.

Wish it was closer to the caverns so we didn't have to back track, but a beautiful campground.

The only complaint I had was that there were quite a number of vehicles leaving the campground very early (0500-0600) each morning that woke us up. I understand they were oil rig workers and the staff had no control of the situation, but it did take away from what was otherwise a pleasant stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Really nice, well laid out campground. Very friendly staff. They even have two fenced in dog parks. The park is located well off of the highway, so road noise is not a problem. We really enjoyed our stay! We would have stayed longer, but we had to move on.

Great staff, beautiful restrooms, meals brought to your site. Everything worked. It is about 1 hour to the Caverns, but well worth it.

Great place to park your RV. The staff is friendly and helpful. The park is well maintained and clean. The on site BBQ is quite good.

Nice staff, immaculate RV park, has food should you not wish to cook supper. Too bad pool was already closed (Oct) and that hot tub is permanently closed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, the government ADA regulations have shut down the hot tub. We wish it were open too!

Enjoyed stay. No highway noise. Easy parking of trailer.
Oct 22, 2013
I felt very safe. The sites were spacious and I felt that I had the privacy that I wanted. The restrooms were clean and the laundry was accessible. I wish the hot tub area had been open later to accommodate my schedule. Staff was great and really watched out for me. As a woman alone it was very comforting.

The Kampground was well planned, providing a sufficient variety of options for travelers. The spaces are quite roomy and pleasing, with grills, picnic tables, and southwest vegetation. The grounds are very clean. There are dog-friendly places, including a leash-free playground. The entire staff is pleasant and helpful, and I look forward to seeing them during my next work retreat.

Good dinner after a long day of travel. Maybe a sign at road entry off 285.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A nice new sign is up! Come back and see it!

The KOA was clean and the people were friendly. Especially that spitfire Diane! I loved her the moment we walked in! The bathrooms/showers were amazing. The spots right next to each other and there are hardly any trees, so not much priviacy, but our kids loved the playground and we enjoyed our stay. Would stay again when in Carlsbad.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our sites are forty feet wide; we are so sorry our guest felt the spaces were too close. We don't have many trees for sure, but this is the high desert. Our ability to have large trees is severly limited by the geography of the region.

To many flys and stickers!

Great location, very nice park, many attractions even though the N P was closed. Highly recommend this park.

We have always enjoyed staying at this KOA

We loved our stay with Carlsbad KOA - the only thing is that we had to move sites, when my husband asked for 2 nights, thus we had to do a "Chinese firedrill" and pay a higher rate. Otherwise, our experience was excellent. The food in the kitchen was delicious. Outstanding staff.

Very helpful and friendly staff.

They delivered dinner to our RV and it was delicious. Super friendly staff, extra clean facility and very spacious.

Everyone was very nice and liked the doggy park and s'mores night.
