Loved the covered area. The area was big enough for our tent. The convenience store was very useful. Clean bathrooms and electricity and water in the tent sites.

Absolutely beautiful set up. Once we saw how nice, REALLY would have liked to stay longer. Have been telling everyone how awesome your KOA is! We'll be back!

Great stay! I wish the pool stayed open a little later but we had fun anyway. Thanks for a wonderful NM visit!

The restrooms were kinda far from the tent sites. Quiet hours did not seem to be enforced as our tent neighbors were loudly watching TV at 11:45pm

We came to tent camp, the staff was nice and the pool was clean. Nightly it was so windy that our tents were buckling(15-20mph), the 2nd night we had to sleep in the car. No one warned us about high winds. When the wind slowed at midnight RVs started leaving and the exit was only 15 feet away, the road noise was almost constant. We did not sleep well. The office was also closed before sunset.

This KOA was fantastic, friendly, and very clean. We were surrounded by nature and little animals and it was very relaxing.

Campsite and facility was nice. Pool closed way to early with extreme heat conditions. Proper notification was not given on watching for scorpions after dark, found 3 of them while going to the showers, and once outside the tent door. Sprinkler system was not turned off either at the tent village. Turned on while setting up.

Wished the pool was open earlier than 10 am because we had to leave and It would have been nice to take a swim. Other than that, everything was clean and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay.

The campground was clean and well tended. All of the staff were very nice and helpful, and we had a great time with no problems.

Great service, great everything! And the weather even cooperated. A cool evening in the middle of Summer!

Tent camping should be separate from v-ball court. Have an ice dispenser for the single camper.

Wonderful themed Park, very clean and organized. Great big laundry room and roomy showers.

It was hot during our stay so it would have been nice to have some shade. The tent sites have no shade, should have some tree's like the RV sites. The restrooms were excellent lots of hot water for shower.

Good location. Clean bathrooms. Friendly staff. Tent village provided good shade.

We really enjoyed it! Friendly staff, great facilities.

Positive: Clean toilets and showers, friendly staff and good services (BBQ delivery, pool etc although we didn't use these), looked good for RVs. Negative: quite a distance from Carlsbad, paid extra for a campsite advertised as being under a shelter but shelter very small and put in site with full sun, very close to other tents, very noisy as no quiet hour rule (or not enforced if there was one).

Only complaint is weak wifi and the price for a tiny sunscreen in store. It was an ideal place to stay otherwise. Loved TV 2. (tent village) We had a privacy + protection during a storm. Laundromat was nice, large showers, fun pool, excellent intro from staff and helped to our site by golf cart. Love the laid back feel, felt very Austin, TX in NM which we loved having lived there.

Great place, friendly staff, food a tad overpriced, to many lights on at night near tent camping.

Our stay was very nice. My kids loved the opportunity to look at planets through the telescope Saturday evening g.

The tent village was horrible! You can hear every word the others in the village say. Screaming kids till 11:00 pm; then they were up at 6:00 am and woke everyone else up. I could hear the person in the next tent site snoring-that woke me as well. Horrible nite with a 450 mile drive ahead of me!!

We enjoyed are staying at the KOA. The staff was out standing.

Wonderful facilities and friendly staff.

We stayed in tent village. It was wonderful having water right next to the tent and somewhere to charge our phones, along with a counter area to cook, and picnic table. The bathrooms were very clean and well kept. Unfortunately the tent village is right at the entrance and exit of the camp, so at all hours of the night almost continuously we had headlights shining right into our tent.

Such nice folks and great facilities! The only downside was the distance to the Caverns was longer than expected. We would likely stay here again, though.

The grounds were very nice. Bathrooms were clean. Could have been nice BUT The people staying next to us RUINED our stay. The woman would stick her head in our tent at 10 pm and complain about my child if he cried or if my husband and i wispered. I wish the staff would post a privacy no intruding sign on the tent grounds.

Great to not worry about a code to access the restrooms!
Jun 01, 2016
Bathrooms were very clean and facilities were very well maintained

Staff was great and very helpful. Nice amenities including "room service". The only negative of the entire place is that the tent sites are too close in my opinion.

Our family had not yet stayed at a KOA campground and were impressed with the service and amenities! Thanks for making our first experience memorable, we will be using KOA in the future for sure!
May 24, 2016
