Very friendly staff and clean! We camped in the water/electricity spots, we won't do that again bc you are just separated by a fence to the next people camping. It was also kind of expensive in my opinion but it was a very nice campground overall.

We tent camped there for one night. The lady working the front desk when we checked in was Michelle. She is a super friendly and helpful person. She refused to take a phone call until she finished helping me, so when you are there they treat you like the most important person.

The site is pretty windy until the sun goes down, but that is pretty much all of New Mexico. The pool is pristine, and the restrooms/showers and super clean! There is plenty of places to walk you pets. Also, there is a coy pond with a bench too. The bench has horse shoe cup holders on each side, clever!

We had the beef and pork sandwiches for dinner that night and they were delicious. There were experimenting with spicy mustard on the pork sandwiches. Try is you will like it, I know I did and was pleasantly surprised. All-in-all a great KOA with a great staff.

This was a very clean and friendly campground. We used it as a base camp to go see Carlsbad Caverns. It's about 45 minutes from the caverns and 15 minutes from Carlsbad. Given the choices, this park is worth the drive. Not only is the camp friendly and accommodating but it has a nice pool, recreation room, store, and laundry facilities. Plenty of space in sites and a nice place to stay.

The campground was very clean and the staff was very friendly. We did not stay long enough to enjoy the amenities, such as the pool or food services, but we would stay here again.

Quiet, peaceful, better than any other place youre going to find around this area. PS avoid the walmart in Carlsbad, if possible.

A little expensive, and almost an hour from Carlsbad Caverns, but a very well run, helpful park.

Stayed here to visit Carlsbad Caverns (about a 45 minute drive away). Great campground. KOA is always a bit more expensive, but the sites had tress and there was a lot of wildlife running through (mostly bunnies, birds, etc.). Friendly staff, and you can have a BBQ dinner or pizza delivered to your site (ordered through the front desk). They have events on the weekend and also a tent village for those that aren't RVing. Nice, cheap laundry that is open 24 hours/ day, showers, swimming pool, dog run & dog park, wifi and a general store that has ice cream, snacks, beer & wine. I would definitely stay here again.

This was a nice surprise, an isolated location away from the town with nice tree's, birds and hare's running around so you feel like a campground. The sites are really nice and level, and are raked after each use, good space between sites. Like most good KOA's this has a nice store, great showers, clean bathrooms. This site has a huge meeting room with TV and a Saltwater tank to relax in. The staff that seems to be working hard all day. They smoke BBQ I think 3 days a week, and offer site food delivery everyday, with Pizza and others, pretty nice! There are tent sites, and cabins too. About a 45 Minute drive from Carlsbad Caverns National Park. We'd surely stay again!
