Called for reservations the day before and got in to a site with just water & electric. Then when we got to the camp the office was closed for Easter and our reservation was taped to the door which they did not tell us would be the case. They didn't inform us that the indoor pool was not working and... More

We stop for 3 days on the Carlsbad RV Park and Campground during our family spring vacation. Few adults + few kids traveling with trailer. Generally this campground is OK, but not great. Location: as best as you can get. Looks like this is closest decent campground in the Carlsbad Caverns area. Good access to civilization in Carlsbad. We've got... More

We're traveling the SW in a 5th wheel, and have stayed here before. We always find this to be a nice place to spend a few nights. The sites are big, and we were able to get a pull-through, full service, despite there being a lot of oil workers here now. The staff is great, ready to answer any questions,... More

The good: Folks who run this park are very nice indeed, and it's clean. Parking is easy (pull-thru's). It's also one of the closest decent parks to Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Straightforward design with gravel everywhere, sites are nice and level, service connections are excellent (electric, water and sewer). Bathrooms and showers are in clean and in good condition, though... More

The staff went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. We did not have a reservation, late at night. They got us " backed " in (40') .The next day had us set up for the next few days. Made the difference of enjoying our time in the Carlsbad area or frustration and disappointment. I learned to plan ahead,... More

Way overpriced for just water and electric and a gravel parking lot type of camping. Before I checked in I asked if they had wifi and whether it worked (I needed to access my email). They assured me it was just fine. After a day of trying everything they told me to do, they admitted the wifi doesn't work with... More

If you compare the pictures on their website and what is actually happening at the park, it is two different things. They are drilling oil & gas in the area and the park seems to be full of workers that go to work before dawn. Trailers are packed in like sardines in a large percentage of the park. Many of... More

Needs trees, scrubs. Very bare, gravel, no shade. Wifi was non-existant. We were in the back, away from the highway but still had some pretty heavy noise. Several "big rig" sites on last row aren't really pull thru -- they are tandem. They were full up every night and we quickly discovered why -- the other 2 RV parks near... More

Our 2 day stay here turned into a 4 day stay because of truck issues. We were graciously left in our site even though it had been booked out to others for the 3rd and 4th night. They have good facilities, a games room, pool, laundry, dog areas and a well stocked camp store. Would have given a fuve except... More

We stayed in one of the camper cabins 2 nights. It's convenient to the Caverns and the staff was really friendly. The cabin wasn't ready when we arrived but we didn't have to wait too long. We used the pool once and it was nice. The grounds look well cared for. The biggest issue is their restrooms. They're clean but... More
