The staff was always courteous and nice. My wife and I stayed 15 nights and enjoyed everyday. The barbecue was also great. A very nice place, clean and again very courteous. Thank you, Mike & Kaycee Jones

Rate was too high for typical KOA. "Doc" who led us to our site proceeded to lean into our cab...no mask!!...to be friendly. Wouldn't have minded IF HE'D WORN A MASK!! (and he professed to be an emt.)

It was the best placed that we stayed at since we left Virginia on November 30. The staff were polite, helpful and the food was excellent. The camp is clean and very spacious.

Great out of town (but not too far out) place to stay. Office staff is very nice and helpful. A bonus is their on site food service. We ordered the smoked brisket dinner. It was so good that we ordered the smoked turkey sandwiches to take with us for a meal on the road. We will be back.

Not very busy but it was Covid and December. We had a nice level site, hook-ups worked and well located, the staff was friendly, laundry worked well. It was a 45-minute drive to the caves. However, we passed many other RV campgrounds along that 45-minute drive, I would not want to have stopped at any one of those places. I would return to this KOA.

Great campground! It was quiet, clean, easy to get in and out of, and friendly staff. Well maintained. Location was great for access to all of the Carlsbad area hiking locations.

We had an enjoyable stay. They greeted us, took us to our spot and made sure all was good. We had a couple of very cold nights and the maintenance was happy to help unfreeze anyone who needed. We were fortunate we didn’t experience freezing pipes.

The sites are clean, spacious and big! They were nice and level. We thought this was the best looking campground in the area. The BBQ on site was nice too!

The good: the officer lady was very friendly and helpful. The outside presentation of the park is good. The bad: the restrooms but the office is closed for renovations so the restrooms in the middle of the park were overused. All 3 restrooms had issues which I had to report to have it taken care of. The poor maintenance of these restrooms was a major disappointment.

Lovely stay, thank you for all your help and information Julie, another woman I didn’t get name of but I believe she is whom I had spoken with regarding items we had left behind! And a gentleman had guided us w some tips to find trails around camp. Doc was very welcoming, friendly too. First time for us experiencing desert life, it was fantastic! Great grill.Lower rating due to neighboring gas/o

Anytime I get my dinner and firewood delivered to my camper, it is a special stay. So glad we chose KOA Carlsbad. Wonderful start to our trip.

It was a great place to spend a weekend. We didn’t do any sightseeing, we just enjoyed the grounds and time alone in our RV. It wasn’t terribly busy (off season) which meant we had plenty of space to roam. Our Great Dane/Pittie mix loved being in the K9 areas and I loved that they had two fenced off areas so that my big old dog could be separated from the younger smaller dogs. We will be b

Wrong to call this "Carlsbad"..it's an hour away! Much closed due to covid. Rates should be reduced to reflect it.

Strange during a pandemic with so few other campers but contactless check in was fine. Have a restaurant onsite with delivery to one’s site was an added bonus. Campground was clean and well maintained as was the laundry area.

Covid shut down ruined are trip .The Caverns were closed ,all restaurants were closed ,We went to Walmart in Artisan and had to wait in line outside in 30 degree weather for 30 minutes before being let in . We went to Roswell everything there was shut down as well .No museums open ,no stores open ,no food places open. we did find a tamale store and it was excellent. Clarence Musch

Nice staff. Due to Covid, the caverns were closed, so we will be back and will stay here again. A little bit of a drive to the cavern, but worth it to be out of the town. Clean laundry facility and bathrooms were being upgraded (looking forward to seeing the finished product!). thanks for the great stay.

$60 a little high considering several amenities were closed due to the virus but on the other hand these small mom and pop businesses need to survive and we need to help.

We had a great stay. We were not aware of the smell issue that your community has to deal with. It is a shame and we feel for you. Regardless you have beautiful facilities and we appreciated all of the hospitality. Thanks!

We loved our stay here, we had a patio spot with swing & fire pit. It was clean, level & spacious. They have several amenities here with different ways to enjoy them; cabins, tent & RV spaces. The staff is friendly & will even bring fresh smoked BBQ to your RV upon order. This a great place to stay!

The facilities and staff were extremely nice. Playground was great, great location - we visited the carlsbad caverns, sitting bull falls in lincoln national forest, and guadalupe mountains. The smoked BBQ is great too!! Really enjoyed our stay.
