Don't confuse this place with Carlsbad RV Park and Campground which is actually in Carlsbad. Carlsbad KOA is very misleading, especially because they are not in Carlsbad, but almost 20 minutes north, making the trip to Carlsbad Caverns about 60 to 70 minutes. We made this mistake (yes, we blame ourselves). Nevertheless, when we arrived and realized how totally not... More

One of the best KOA experiences we had on our road trip. Cabin was standard (same as the rest of the KOAs) and had no issues with it. The location was a little bit out of town but made a quite place to stay. Was relaxing. Was able to purchase a meal from the office and delivered to our cabin.... More

Wifey and I wanted to see the Carlsbad Caverns and noted this top ranked KOA was in the area so we booked a couple of nights to use as a base camp. The park is nicely laid out and the sites are good sized with level gravel next to concrete patios. Ours even had a lawn swing and a grass... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and thought it was a great place to be. The customer service in the front office was welcoming and gave a lot of info for touring. We recommend to pay a little bit more for the paved patio ( paved square bricks ) easy to walk on and allows you to sit in your... More

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
