Camp ground was clean and staff was very friendly. We had a wonderful time staying at the Carlsbad KOA.

Staff was super friendly and helpful. Game room, laundry room and other amenities are excellent. Tent sites are not that great as they are located in a very busy area (right next to basketball court and tether ball) Sites are loud even after "quiet hours" so makes sleeping, especially for kids difficult.

Staff was amazing and they care about your camping experience. Shelly went out of her way to help my family of 6 to keep us safe and comfortable!

Great place. I tent camped and would like to see more grass and shade on the tent area. Everything else is great.

The amenities were nice. Bathrooms were clean, laundry facility had everything working. Could make they tent sites a little softer.

I want to thank all the personal that helped us feel better and safe thru out the dust Storm.

Our only complaint was that the very bright lights on the backside of the office building were aimed at the tent sites making sleep VERY difficult. Everything else was great

Bathrooms were clean, lawn-size checkers were fun, needed 2 or 3 horsehoe pits... 1 was just not enough. Quiet at night and the star gazing was beautiful. They also had a retired NASA engineer with a large telescope the night we were there. He gave a good presentation and let everyone look through his telescope. Very cool!

The people and staff were very nice. All areas were very clean. More flies than I wanted to see. Had to buy fly tape and a fly swatter to keep them at bay.

Stayed two nights in the tent village. The employees were so welcoming and made you feel like you were home. My kids enjoyed spending down time in the rec room and at the pool. It's about a 40 minute drive to the Caverns but it was totally worth it. We'd definitely come back!

The tent village was set up in a neat way, but our noisy neighbors made it slightly annoying. We did enjoy the spot and all the amenities though including the game room, wifi, laundry and pool. The staff was very friendly.

There were some really nice amenities at this KOA. We enjoyed the clean pool, basketball courts, Gameroom, clean bathrooms, General Store and friendly staff. The main issue for us was that we were in a tent and the gas smell combined with some loud Machinery near the tent area made it really difficult to sleep. I think if you are in a camper away from the office, it would great.

Extremely friendly staff. Couldn't be happier. This is our second stay here in the last year and we will be back again. Great job all!

Tent camped for three nights. Site was fine, staff were great! Only complaint is the location. It was 17 miles from Carlsbad and close to one hour away from the Caverns. Back and forth , back and forth.

Clean, friendly, best spot in the area for tent sites with real showers and clean bathrooms

Camp allowed loud music played by one camper to invade the privacy of many others.

My family and I really enjoy staying at koa's. We have stayed at numerous ones in many different states and have enjoyed them all and we always look for one to stay in whenever weI travel. I have to say all of them have been wonderful. I only have had one bad experience and that is at the koa in Alamogordo, New Mexico; the staff and manager were very rude and not friendly at all.

There was considerable noise from neighbors in the tent village, and night car traffic on the gravel was noisy as well. Grounds and bathrooms were very clean. Showers were great.

Has a nice recroom that you can get the wifi and be in the air conditioning as I was staying there in a tent. The bathrooms were clean and well kept. Would have liked a little shade in the tent area.

Our campsite was right across from the hall where you had a BYOB karaoke night. I think there were several people who came in from town to get drunk. As we were going to sleep we heard a bit of a scuffle between a few people. That made us a little uncomfortable. Otherwise we thought the campground was great with plenty of amenities.

We've never stayed at a KOA, so we weren't sure what to expect. As regular "state park" visitors, I can say this was the cleanest & nicest campground we've ever stayed at. The bathrooms/showers were spacious & clean, and the staff was super friendly & accommodating. We will definitely be back.

We appreciated the upgrade to the tent village to save us from the horrible wind! The staff was very nice and accommodating. Clean and pleasant facility. We would gladly return to this KOA.

Reserved a tent sight online for 2 weeks when I got there they told me I could only stay a week and would then have to move so I wouldn't kill the grass there was no grass also absolutely O WIFI unless you are at the office and food is way overpriced and not the best people in charge are not the most helpful
