Tent Reviews

We stayed in tent village. Extremely nice sites. Charged a bit more for a tent site than I thought should be charged.

This was the 1st KOA that I had ever stayed at. The people were very nice and friendly. The tent village was great. It was exceptionally clean, even the bathroom and shower. I am a fan and will stay at KOA on all of my vacations.

A family of 5 traveling with 2 adults and 3 kids, ages 3-8. We thought the employees at the campground were very kind, courteous and helpful. The pool was clean and cool. The park was very clean and felt secure. Bathrooms were exceptionally clean. The only drawback we felt was the layout of the park. We were glad we opted for the tent village because the tent sites were out in the open with no c

It's a wonderful place. Though something has to be done about the long term people that work from there. Having all the 0430-0530 work traffic drive out in their diesel trucks on a gravel road past every camper and especially those in their head lights in Tent Village is just wrong. As camper I will not return. This is the second trip to NM I've stayed there, but not again.

We stayed in the tent village. It was everything we were hoping for, and extremely comfortable for our family. Our parking spot was right in front of our tent site, and it site was very clean.

The bathroom/showers/laundry were very nice. The campsites themselves were too close to each other.

We had a wonderful experience at the Carlsbad KOA. Everyone on staff was helpful and friendly. The facilities were clean and well kept up. We were in their premium tent sites and loved the access to electricity, but also enjoyed the privacy fence. We would definitely stay there again when we visit the area.

I stayed there with a group of middle school kids as part of a science club. Campground was nice but was told game room would remain open and then was kicked out. The kids were extremely disappointed. Management needs communication skills.


The guest was correct; this was a miscommunication by staff. We hope to do better next time.

Well, the grounds were great and the staff was very nice. However we had to abandon our tent camp site prematurely and didn't get to sleep over due to extremely high winds. We would use a KOA again but hopefully our planning for bad weather would be better!

The Carlsbad was so great. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, the pool was perfect for the hot desert! I would definitely recommend.
