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!

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.

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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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
Aug 16, 2015
Very nice campground. It is landscaped beautifully.Everything worked. The staff was extremely helpful and gracious. 107 degree weather was bad, but not fault of campground. Will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Could not have been better! Loved this KOA

We liked the quiet clean RV park, and the staff was great. Very nice and helpful. I appreciate all the help we had there.

Great views, nice cool pool. No trees, but that's not unusual for west Texas. Signs were confusing because this campground is no longer KOA. But I signed up through KOA. Weird.

very well kept camp grounds and quiet. Loved seeing the fish pond in a most unlikely area of the country

We had trouble with the cable TV hook up and they fixed it on the spot. Very clean showers and restrooms.

Beautiful. Quiet, peaceful. If it hadn't been so hot it would have been perfect

I enjoyed my stay. I think this Kampground rates among the highest I have ever stayed at.
Aug 09, 2015
Wonderful. BBQ dinner was AMAZING!
Aug 09, 2015
Staff was great. Since in the heat of summer the park could use more trees.
Aug 09, 2015
The staff at this KOA were some of the friendliest we have come across. The barbecue dinner was excellent, especially after having travelled 700 miles that day! Cooking was the last thing we wanted to do! The pool and the park were big hits with our kids. They also really enjoyed the Smores cookout, since mama and daddy were too worn out to make our own campfire!
Aug 08, 2015
nice clean campground. wonderful that pool was heated, but way too small. staff very helpful.
Aug 08, 2015
The staff were very nice and helpful. We appreciated all the rules they had as that is what makes your stay pleasant!! We also purchased there food and it was very good. If we come back to Carlsbad we would go back!!
Aug 07, 2015
Nice campground. There was even an expert with a high powered telescope showing families various planets and the moon - very cool. The only complaint was that it was not at all close to Carlsbad Caverns as we had thought.
Aug 07, 2015
A great experience!! The campground was immaculately kept, the people were very friendly and helpful and we would certainly stay there again. They smoke their own meat on site and deliver it to your RV. We had BBQ one night and it was terrific. Our grandkids loved the sparkling pool. Anything we needed, the staff was there to provide it. Excellent KOA!!!!! We camped in a travel trailer.

Women's showers had no hot water if someone else using when you started. Restrooms were clean. Husband thought men's facilities were the best no issues with hot water however he was in by himself.
Aug 06, 2015
Only complaint, the hot water in the shower was Nonexistent..

Love this campground! Friendly, thoughtful staff, clean facilities and fun activities! BBQ is the best! This is by far, the BEST KOA we have stayed at! Highly recommend!
