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.

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!!

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!

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.
May 30, 2016
Lots of activities, CLEAN, NICE restrooms!

Very enjoyable.

Great staff and couldn't have asked for a better place to camp.
May 24, 2016
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!

We had a great time can't complain about anything bathrooms were very nice and clean wasn't a very long walk from the campsite all in all it was a great stay and we had a great time. Will definitely try to come back to this KOA

Loved the private tent area

This was the first time I have stayed at a KOA. We usually stay in state parks but decided to try a KOA. Although it is more expensive then a state park it is well worth the money. The showers and barhroms were very clean. There were ample laundry facilities. The staff was very helpful and even lead us to our tent site. If all KOA sites are like this, you have to try it at least once.

Although it's 2000 miles form home, we try to stay here whenever we travel across the country. Quiet, nice bathrooms, love the covered area.
May 03, 2016
Terrific hosts. Helpful and kind. They work hard to make you feel welcome. Would definitely stay here again.
May 03, 2016
This campsite is totally clean and super friendly! Plenty of things to do both in the site and off site! We were very impressed with how clean things were and how quiet it was. Will be one to put in the books!

nice clean and safe
Apr 25, 2016
It was really good for my family.
Apr 23, 2016
Great bathrooms! My only recommendation would be to replace the gravel driveways with dirt or asphalt. People driving over the travel all nigh made it hard to sleep.

Friendly staff and well kept grounds. Will deliver dinner. About 15 mins from the town of Carlsbad. Tent camped.
Apr 18, 2016

This is a great space, and lots of great amenities. The bathroom and club room were awesome. My big complaint is the basic tent sites are very small and right by the roads. Would have been nicer if they were tucked further back and a little bit larger. Also the fire pit is really small, as tent campers you rely on the campfire to keep you warm, and its tough when its small.

Very professional, courteous, clean, and and very friendly.
