Actually the tent area with elect was so close to others that it was too loud. Esp at 2 am!!! Rude people that were asked to keep it down quite a few times. T5 was the spot.

My family and I were only going to stay one night, But the KOA and Carlsbad had so much for us to do, we stayed our whole vacation.

Tout fut très bien. Un peu d'ombre sur les tent sites serait à créer Accueil cordial et attentionné

Took a 9 week cross country trip tenting and hotels. Stayed in 17 KOA's in 12 states; 3 in NM. This place has it all. Location to sites, Clean, Great Recreation room that saved me. Only tough point - Tent Village site 4 (I think) has tough western exposure in the heat.

This place had very clean bathrooms and was family-friendly. It had many amenities that we were not used to while camping. They even have a food delivery service. Just be sure you ask specifically how it works, because there is a schedule of deliveries. The only negative is that depending on the direction of the wind, there is a pretty strong oil field smell.

We had a great stay at your KOA! We really liked the layout the facilities, the friendly staff, the ability to order dinner and have it delivered to our campsite, and the referrals to local attractions. It was all fantastic. The tent site was a little bit close to the propane tank and the gas could be smelled at night. It was not bad, but thought I'd mention it. Thank you for a great stay!

This is a great campground even by KOA standards. It's very clean (bathrooms, pool area, campsites etc...). The employees were helpful and friendly. Tip: If you are tent camping sites 1 & 2 are shadier then the others and perfect for side-by-side tenting.

Very nice place to stay. Everything was clean and well kept up. The only 2 downfalls were that the primitive camping area had very few trees and the staff was a bit rude. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay so long as you avoided having to speak to employees any more than absolutely necessary and if you are staying in the primitive areas be prepared and have a canopy of some sort.

It was a much nicer experience than I was expecting! I've never stayed at a KOA before, but I will definitely stay again! Our campsite was right next to the bathrooms and not far from the pool. The bathrooms were very spacious and clean! They also had several outlets along a ledge, which was convenient! Even though we were sleeping outside, it felt safer than a hotel!

It was hottttttttt this weekend, but everyone in our group had a great time. Glad there was a pool and the staff was very friendly and accomodating.

Ad for this koa was misrepresented. It was clean, but the tent sites were at best poor

A great camp ground. Play ground for the kids would have been nice.
