Staff was personable and helpful. Services were more than adequate. Our site was very reasonable for our camping experience. Thank you!

The "Tent village" is a nice idea, but not properly portrayed on the website when reserving. Never was I aware that I would be sleeping 4 feet from other families who let their screaming children play outside the tent and around the camp area at 10PM.

This was our second stay at the Carlsbad, NM KOA. This is a great site that is well maintained, with friendly staff, and close to lots of fun activities. We'd definitely stay here again.

Bathrooms were clean but very cold. Grounds were nice but bring your own coffee they want $2.00 for a $.50 keurig cup. Be sure to bring ear plugs because people are driving in at all hours and they have birds that like to serenade you with songs at 0200. The staff is very friendly and informative.

Nice campground and mostly nice campground personal however, the general store had every little reall food and the BBQ food served on grounds was pre made and re heated in the microwave. The bathrooms/showers did not feel clean and smelled like smoked BBQ all the time.

Very budget friendly, & the staff members were all very friendly & helpful. The campgrounds & shared facilities were well-maintained & easily accessible. The location was perfectly situated within almost equal distances of the major area attractions. My teenage boys said this was the best vacation we've ever taken, & I must agree! We look forward to visiting more KOA Kampgrounds in the future!

Nice place to stay.

This is a great place to stay, but too far away from Carlsbad Caverns. There are several places closer if you're going for the caverns. If you're visiting the surrounding area (which I hear is beautiful with many sights to explore), this is a great location!

Campground was nice, but the grass at the tent village was virtually non-existent. There were several campers and one group allowed their dogs to run free around the area. Another group arrived after midnight and were hammering in tent stakes at the late hour. Would be nice if the campsite cleaned the cobwebs and dirt from the storage area and picnic tables regularly

A one night stay! All staff members were very friendly and helpful and all of my questions were answered quickly and professionally. An added bonus was the fantastic BBQ that was prepared onsite! All of the facilities were clean and well maintained.

The staff is very friendly and the facilities are clean. The campsites are nice and it is well run. It is a nice starting point to go to Carlsbad Caverns. However, it is close to the highway and a little noisy. It is also close to oil pumps and one can smell the sulfur almost every night.

Nice place - great barbecue and nice staff. Our only suggestion would be to have a toilet at the Tent Village for in the middle of the night. It's a long walk to the big restroom in the dark. Only needs to be a small toilet.

Great place to stay! Staff was very friendly, the entire site was very clean and taken care of. I also liked the fact that the campsite was patrolled regularly.

The unique tent village was the perfect tent site and I would happily camp there again.
