Friendly and accommodating staff.

Overall, we had a lovely time during our stay. Check-in/out was easy, we loved our tent site, the staff was very kind, and our kids loved the Gaga ball pit/playground. Great location to 3 parks! The only issues were the dirty bathrooms and the kitchen sink—both of which are important for tent campers. Both need a major deep clean. Showers were not touched for days (dirty razor left there, etc

Located a bit north of Carlsbad (which is a bit north of the Caverns), the KOA had nice tent sites, clean restrooms/ facilities, and a great sense of camaraderie among the guests. Would stay there again!

The site itself was nice but the restrooms were not being cleaned and stocked. They ran out of toilet paper and the sinks in the men's restroom didn't work. The person that helped us seemed very irritated when we first checked-in, not at us, but didn't give us a great impression.

We loved staying here!! It was such an enjoyable experience! The staff were super friendly all week! The bathroom and showers were always clean!! We would get text about the weather warning us of upcoming bad weather!! I would come back again!! Thankful for welcoming these spring breakers!!

The amenities and tent areas were perfect. Only negatives were the paper towel dispenser in the womens barely worked. It would be nice if the store had longer hours. For those who are out on adventure and don't get back till after 6 and leave before 10 we didn't get in the shop but once.

Great people, great showers, road noise at night, and spiney things in tent area. Lots of family games. Perhaps the best pick if visiting Carlsbad Cavern.

Incredible! As a solo female traveler the hosts were super kind and informative. Not to mention the vast majority of families staying here made me feel like I was staying in a safe established residential neighborhood. Safest stay I’ve ever experienced and I’ve stayed in my fair share of campgrounds. Would 100% stay here again.

Most challenging was the highway 285 noise - there is a fence between the campground and the highway, but it could be better to help isolate the noise. I stayed in spot TV6 (the hexagon pwr/water tent area) - I thought these spots were a nice idea, so do the doves - bird poop on all the table and any wood surface area. The ground was flat and worked well for a four person tent. Great showers.

Dee and Stormie went out of their way to accommodate our request for our services and location. Would definitely choose to stay at Carlsbad KOA again! Good location too.

We had a great time with family. So glad the rec room is available for us to use when the weather is not so great.

Despite being the only people in tent village we were given a site on the highway side with a view of a large electrical facility and the wifi didn’t work there either. Showers were not very clean.

Nice tent spot under the trees. The water was so hard it left minerals in my hair. Two of the three sink faucets were non functional. One of the two hand soap dispensers worked but it was out of soap. I suspect the minerals in the water have compromised the faucet lines and have clogged them. A ridiculously expensive fix.

Of all KOA experiences I’ve been since leaving Canada this campground is the worst experience. Badly maintain, dirty site, most of the time no WiFi access, pool closed, limited fiis supplies and more. If I were to evaluate KOA Campground based on my stay in Carslbad, I would never camp again at KOA.

Wish pool had been open. Great bathrooms.

bad stay 2 star max! would love to say more it is clear to me your network by only permitting a small space for comments does not care for my full report. I will say then in a small way this camp does not provide security. it allows parties until 3 am they are unhelpful and are only interested in collecting money

WONDERFUL amenities. We loved the rec room!! Bathroom was clean. Nice big showers. Wish there was a more obvious dish cleaning sink.

There was no electricity and when I called that morning they could have let me know and didn’t so I we had to make other arrangements. They only refunded 5.00 back for something I did not use and the time I wasted.

First time at a KOA. The KOA bathrooms were kept very clean. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool as well.

Great campsite and staff.

Very, very loud at night (traffic). Great common area.

We had a hard time finding Tent village. Marking it on the map would have helped immensely, since the office was only open 10am to 6pm. The TV could have used a good sweeping. Installing a quarter machine would help with laundry as the office was closed. The pool was refreshing, but overly chlorinated. Showers and bathrooms were clean. Thank you!

Many families get in late from being on vacation & so for the store to close at 6 PM is hard if families need food for dinner - with no food for 18 miles. Also it was 98° at 7 PM. Closing the pool at 8 PM seemed a little bit early. Also there was a microwave but no place to wash dishes. Perhaps a sink could be installed to help families out? We had to do dishes in the bathroom.

Great place to stay! Super clean bathrooms and showers. After hours check in was a breeze. The only negative, which I can’t fault the campground, would be an excessive amount of flies. We made a trip to town just to purchase a fly trap at Walmart. Within a couple of hours it was partially filled, but very helpful.

tent sites were very nice, and it was really convenient to have access to a microwave during a fire ban so we could expand out cooking options! bathrooms and laundry were clean and easily accessible, which is always a good thing for tent campers! the pool closed super early in the day though which is disappointing during such hot weather.

Great park, clean amenities and very quiet during our stay.

I really like the updated tent site that we had. I feel like the bathrooms need updating. Friendliness of staff was hit and miss.

Check in was easy, the facility was clean, the tent pad was level and free from major bumps or gravel. We loved the privacy fence around one side of the site.

The staff and camp were great. Staff were very friendly. I like that they text you to keep you informed on park events.

All our questions were answered. We liked the tent site we were at to help with the weather conditions i.p.o ons of the area. I wish the resteraunt to deliver food to our campsite was open.

Someone had taken our assigned camping area, so they gave us another, in the shade, and away from the larger group. It turned out to be perfect. All the little animals kept coming to our site. Rabbits, Quail with babies, and other birds. It was awesome! The pool was nice, the bathrooms were clean. It was all around a great place to stay!

Super-helpful to our BSA troop, very friendly office staff! Pool, rec room and bathrooms/showers all very clean. Thank you!

Great site for Carlsbad Caverns, cool pool on the hotest days. Recommend this site.

Great and friendly staff and clean facility. Hope the cafe kitchen is open again soon

This was an amazing campground. The staff was very friendly. The pool was very clean and was a great way to cool off from the heat. We thoroughly enjoyed the indoor space with games, table tennis, darts, life sized chess, etc…. We camped in a tent so the indoor space was extremely nice to escape the heat. Tent spaces had trees around them. Bathrooms were very clean. I would stay here again!

Tent village had water and electric and all important shade! Clean bathrooms with lots of space!

Great family and pet friendly atmosphere. Lots of activities for kids and families. Great store. We could hear coyotes howling at sunset off in the distance. Welcoming us by name on the board outside was a nice touch. My only complaint is that there was some trash as you drive in from the highway and campsite patio had weeds growing up through it. We only stayed one night but we had a great campfire to cook on and we rested well in the peaceful setting.

The deluxe cabin was so comfortable, had everything we needed. We rented the pedal carts and played games and had so much fun! The staff was helpful and friendly

We stayed 1 night at a tent camping site with a picnic table, water, and electricity. The site was clean and well sheltered from wind blowing across the plains. There are bathrooms and showers as well as a store and recreation areas. Overall I was very impressed with how clean the facilities were and how easy the check-in and check-out processes were! It was fairly quiet being set back from the main road and other campers were generally courteous about the quiet hours. Check-in: drive up to the office and speak with the attendant at the desk to get your site information. Check-out: clean up and leave your site by the specified check-out time.
