Terrific hosts. Helpful and kind. They work hard to make you feel welcome. Would definitely stay here again.

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!

It was really good for my family.

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.

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.

We abided by all of the clearly marked rules of the park but were told that we had numerous complaints against us from several people but we were never told what the complaints were but we were told that the people in the site next to us were "complainers". The owners were rude and unprofessional and didn't care about the guy in the next site constantly spying on my teenage nieces and daughter

The campsite is in a great location. It's about 45 minutes from Sitting Bull Falls and Calrsbad Caverns in different directions. The showers and bathrooms are clean and private. Great place to stay for families with children!

The staff were very nice. The tent area was not so nice, the showers were being remodeled, and the pool was not working.

We had a lovely stay! All of the employees went totally out of their way to be friendly and helpful and the campground itself is very nice. Our only objection is that the tent sites are right up front and subject to the very early comings and goings of long-term residents going to work.

We enjoyed our stay in Tent Village. Nice KOA, people and facilities.

The staff was super friendly and professional. It was super clean and well laid out. The game room and ping pong table was so fun. The showers were hot and also super clean. My only wish was a slightly larger layout for the tent camping with maybe a wind break.

Great location... Felt like camping out in a park unlike some urban lots.

This KOA is clean and staff is friendly. It's just not meant for tent camping. The few tent sites are super close to each other, with volleyball and basketball courts sharing the small area. I ended up camping at Brantley Lake State Park for my second night in the area. 1/3 the price, no light pollution, and private sites that are in actual nature.

The KOA was located about 15 miles from carlsbad which was perfect. The land around the campground had wildlife and beautiful sunrise and sunset. The staff was great the place was overall just perfecy

All-in-all it was a great stay on 3/14/2016. The only down side was that some of the showers were being remodeled. The line for the remaining showers was too long. The break room was the best I have seen at a KOA and the staff was great. They can even serve hot meals to guest!

The campground was geared toward RV campers and we were tent camping. Any vehicle coming in our out of the campgrounds had to drive by us. We were closer to the main building, so it was also very well lit, so it was a bit bright on the tent for sleeping. The tent areas should be in the back of the park - it would be a game changer. The staff was friendly though, and the grounds well kept.

For the price, I would think there should have been more and closer bathroom facilities for tent camping

I was a little worried about the lack of trees, but it was awesome camping there! The staff was wonderful and my kids loved the rec room. The BBQ was delicious as well. We will definitely be back! Great location for the caverns, sitting bull, etc.

Clean facilities and friendly staff. Two women traveling with teenager felt very safe.

This is a great place for novice campers, but not for anyone who appreciates the solitude of the outdoors.
Mar 14, 2016
Friendly good food Disappointed in price as paid for a tent/water. Would need to use the showers & because of renovations ONLY 2 available and in the RV area!

A very nice campground, though set up more for RVs than for tents. The amenities are insanely good. the people were without exception lovely, and the restaurant was both quite good and relatively reasonably priced, and they deliver to your site! Pricey for tenting, but worth it.

Nice staff, hot showers, and great amenities at the tent village. Only problem was the smell, but it is a problem with the whole area and not the KOA.
