Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful! Loved the rec room where our two families could meet and eat and play games out of the wind. Great place to stay!

Super friendly and campground very neat. Nice having a hot meal available after a days driving. Will be a real oasis once your trees are bigger.

We really enjoyed our stay here, and the people who work there are especially helpful and friendly!!! The reason I didn't mark it as great is because there are a few things that were suppose to be included during our stay wasn't. Advertised complimentary breakfast, which wasn't included. The shower facilities were under construction. The pool wasn't open, but filled. It was warm enough!

There was no wi-fi or cell reception at all. Pool states heated...Not! The laundry was expensive to use. location was good for heading to Carlsbad Caverns. Staff very friendly and the park was clean and well cared for.

Clean well maintained KOA. THere seemed to be a lot of people buzzing around keeping an eye on everything. We left on a Sunday morning and the staff was out hand raking the sites that had just left. The onsite restaurant does an excellent job of BBQ. We had the brisket and smoked turkey and it was enough for two meals. The staff was very pleasant. Would stay again.

Sites were huge! Everything was very clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Great place! We extended our trip by a day just to stay a bit longer.

Pretty close to the top of the KOA campgrounds we've visited. They've thought of just about everything, and it is kept very clean. Only problem we had is that it is not very close to Carlsbad - it is about a 15 mile drive outside the city, and 40 miles to the Caverns. It was terribly windy during our visit, but that's not something the owners could control.

The staff was really nice and the overall campground was great. The rating would have been a lot better but the restroom and shower facilities just weren't adequate for the number of spaces. It will probably be better once they finish whatever construction they are doing in the main building.

Beautiful place, very friendly staff.

We recognize that the staff members are very friendly and helpful and work very hard to make the park nice, but when we booked, we were told that the pool would be open and it wasn't. We were also not told in advance that the showers were being remodeled.

Love the rabbits running around the park!!!
Mar 17, 2016
There were only three bathrooms open for the whole park. We had long lines. We were told there were other bathrooms just no showers but they were blocked off. I was very disappointed for the amount we paid.

Staff was extremely welcoming and hospitable. They went out of their way to do any and everything for the campers.
Mar 16, 2016
Cost too much!!

Mar 14, 2016
Very Clean- Large sites-Friendly staff and the best smoked barbecue meals and even delivered to our sites. Keep up the great work.
Mar 13, 2016
Excellent facilities, poor WiFi at any time of day, ie, number of users seem irrelevant to the poor Internet connectivity
Mar 13, 2016
Super friendly staff -Thnx to Marianne & Harry! Site was large & level. Bathrooms main building closed for renovation leaving only 2 restrooms for entire camp. Not the best - hope these are remodeled next. Trash only at exit - need more. Pool closed. BBQ delivered was good, though lukewarm & rolls were hard. Nice to not cook after a long day on the road. Strong bad smell every night - septic.

Nice place
Mar 05, 2016
This is a lovely quiet park with easy access big lots. Each lot has a picnic table, fire pit and trees. The people are friendly and helpful. Two off leash fenced yards for dogs. The down side is it really isn't near Carlsbad (26 miles) away) also the main washrooms were "under construction" The free wifi was patchy and not dependable. It is located within driving distance of attractions.

Nice campground and people were very helpful in making our stay enjoyable. As for the cable TV would not for us because of changes they had made. Our TV has worked in every campground we have been in. Wifi is weak, you have to go to the office to have Wifi.
Mar 03, 2016
Great facility - clean and quiet. Wonderful staff. Sites are level and generous. Nice dog park area. Will stop there again!
Mar 01, 2016
The WIFI was less than desirable as is the case in most KOA's where we have stayed. I am currently in a KOA and am having to use another WIFY in order to complete this survey. The WIFY here is the same as the other KOA's. LESS THAN DESIRABLE.

Staff and facilities were great. Thanks

This KOA is one of the best, if not the best KOA campground we have used. We live on the road full time and travel so we see a lot of different KOA camps ---its easy to compare. Easy off and easy on the freeway. A ways from Carlsbad and the Caverns but the roads are smooth & easy to navigate. Bring your water softener and your WIFI booster or AirCard. The staff is fantastic.

Wish I could have stayed longer.

Enjoyed our stay. Was a very nice park. I was disappointed that I asked 2 different employees about fixing the light at dog walk, however during our 8 days nothing was ever done.
Feb 28, 2016
We really like this park. Very pet friendly. Large sites. Friendly folks, both staff and Kampers. BBQ WAS GOOD TOO. Delivered to our site hot and on time after a full day of sightseeing.
Feb 27, 2016
Out in nowheresville and with home cooked food. How can you beat this? Short drive to Carlsbad on good roads and a pleasant desert setting. Clean, well-appointed camp.
Feb 25, 2016
Well maintained, great services and very roomy. Would stay here again!
Feb 24, 2016
We really enjoyed our stay. Half way to everything you would like to see in Carlsbad.

Cable didn't work good, couldn't get cable on back television, many channels didn't come in. WiFi was not dependable. Bathroom under renovation and pool was closed. Nice dog park.
Feb 21, 2016
The good side: nice park, nice staff, nice laundry, propane on site, and great facilities. The bad: expensive, very hard water, horrible Wi-Fi while we were there, stinky, probably due to what seems like a water treatment plant near the park. Overall we liked the park and would go back and stay in the future. They were fixing the WiFi problem, only wish it was not so expensive.
Feb 21, 2016
we loved this place. nice area, close to so much yet out away from most. we loved it so much we stayed coming and going
