great stopping point after leaving Pagosa Springs at 8am heading to Marble falls,tx. the office staff was pleasant both over the phone the night before to make reservations and also upon arrival. They even provided our boxers doggy treats. The spaces are more than accommodating for large and smaller rigs as we were in a 29 ft class c motorhome... More

We stayed overnight at this KOA. It was a good place to rest, the air was cold and the cabin was clean. It's further from Carlsbad Caverns than I thought it would be and wish we would have found a closer place to stay, but, all in all, it was a good nights stay.

We stayed two nights here. RV sites very spacious. Guided to out site by a worker in his golf cart. Very nice pet area. Clean bathrooms! Office/store people very nice. Grounds well kept. Only negative was that two dryers weren't working (out of 6), so waiting for a dryer took hours. We'd stay here again!

When we read the previous reviews, the two main things complained about were the "oil field" smell and dirty bathrooms. However, after staying there, I think the dirty bathroom people just had a bad experience. The bathrooms were clean and very conveniently located. This campground had many more amenities than what I was used to. There is an outdoor pool... More

Cabin was clean, plenty of space for my family of 5. AC worked well, almost too well! It stormed both days we were there so we were very happy to have the cabin. Cabin and RV Sites were well spaced and there were trees. Much nicer than the RV park in Carlsbad looked. We went to the pool which was... More

My family stayed here for two nights in a 32 foot bumper pull with four slides. The basic amenities can be found on the KOA website, so I won't spend any time on those. Location: The location is relatively remote and on the other side of Carlsbad from the caverns, so it's about an hour drive through town to get... More

We are staying here for a month and we where put in the very back of the park. Apparently they have an above ground sewer (crap pool) right beside us. I can throw a rock from the rv to it. Which in that case draws in a bunch of flys and gags us every time the wind blows. My husband... More

After reading the reviews of most of the hotels in Carlsbad we decided to try a cabin at KOA. If you're visiting Carlsbad for the Caverns, note that this property is on the north side of town and the caverns are on the south side of town. It is a bit of a drive, but we were very happy with... More

Stayed at this campground for two nights to tour the caverns. Based on what we saw driving around this is by far the best in the area. Level gravel sites with fire pits made set up easy. Immaculate bathrooms and great playground and pool for the kids. A large grassy Kamp k9 was a hit with the pups. Staff was... More

The typical KOA we have visited appears to be constructed in the 1950's when RV slides did not exist. This was one of the few KOA campgrounds we have visited that has ample room no matter how large your rig. The only complaint I would have is the same that I have at all prior KOA campgrounds (until we figured... More
