Misleading description of the campground - Wi-Fi barely available and only after we were moved to another site. Not suitable for overnighting as tow vehicle needs to be unhooked. Very tight turns into sites and much maneuvering needed. Most sites very uneven and need some serious maintenance, we certainly had difficulty leveling. Pretty poor considering the top price for this campground and certainly not top facilities. 50 amp service situated half way along the site, which the owner didn't think to tell us, even though many people visiting also think there is only 30 amp, which is situated at the very back of the site. Supposed cable TV is essentially the same as the aerial service. Very poor, cheap, and does not even have the Weather Channel. Restrooms and showers very old and laundry looks rundown. This campground has only been slightly updated and could do with some more money spending. Plus point is that the campground is in good location for shopping and Santa Fe. We wouldn't use this park again.

Stayed here for 4 nights during the Balloon Fiesta. Excellent water pressure. Solid 30-amp supply. A/C and water heater both usable but not concurrently. Expensive and some sites were very remote from the Balloon Fiests and so the school bus shuttle vital and excellent service provided. Good location for the Fiesta, very convenient and some areas within walking distance of the Balloon Park. Very well organized and helpful volunteers with a friendly atmosphere. Pleasantly surprised overall and enjoyed our stay.

Date of Stay:

Very friendly and helpful staff. Only just big rig size as sites very close together with just enough room for slide-outs. We stayed here for 6 nights recuperating from recent surgery in Albuquerque, and the setting is very peaceful. About a 30min drive to Santa Fe. Services good and cable TV particularly good. Wi-Fi also excellent considering the rural location. No reliable Verizon signal, but that's not the fault of the campground. All the sites need grading and leveling, many motorhomes had problems leveling and we also had problems leveling. Excellent gift shop. Would use again.

Date of Stay:

Helpful staff and pull-throughs adequate with enough space for tow vehicle. Services good. Wi-Fi worked OK until a motor home was put at the side of us which wiped out the signal. Cable TV did not work at all. Laundry looked impressive, six washers and driers, but did not use. Would use again for a 1-2 night stay to visit Roswell. No Verizon cell phone signal.

Date of Stay:

Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Re-sited us onto a bigger space to accommodate our long rig with an easy pull-thru. We were on one of the better sites, but some were very near to the Freeway (very noisy) and some were very cramped. The Campground itself is old and could do with some updating, especially the restrooms and showers. Overall in a good location and we enjoyed our stay. We camped here for 3 nights in our 38ft 5th wheel trailer and couldn't book a further night due to the Balloon Fiesta. Would use again.

Date of Stay:

Friendly and very helpful staff, particularly during our unplanned emergency hospital visit in Ruidoso. Good sized pull-thrus, space to park tow vehicle. Escorted to site. Satisfactory Wi-Fi and limited TV service. Would use again.

Date of Stay:

Very helpful and friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble to make our stay comfortable, and attention to detail and Staff very hard working. Pull-thrus very spacious and services good, although cable TV not brilliant. Wifi good. Expensive, but for a KOA it is a good park and would use again. Would give this park a 10 but the location was a bit of away from Carlsbad Town itself and even further from the Caverns. One negative point - the driers in the Laundry were not efficient - our laundry was still wet after 45 mins. We camped here for 3 nights in our 38ft 5th wheel trailer.

Date of Stay:

This is our third visit here for an overnight stop. Good services and adequately large pull-throughs. Convenient location for I-10. Would use again.

Date of Stay:

Good size pull-throughs, although the first site we pulled into there was a very large ants nest and they were biting! We relocated to the next spot and the Owner quickly came around to treat the ants nest. Lots of space and a tidy well-maintained Park. Not sure about the rustic fencing for privacy, as to us it didn't feel very welcoming, but that's a personal thing. Very helpful staff and allowed Good Sam rate even though we had only just enrolled for membership. Would use this park again. Good services, TV channels only a few and not very good. Free Wifi. We camped here for 2 nights in our 38ft 5th wheel trailer.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful setting in a well managed/maintained park. No shade trees but we don't mind that. Extra wide spaces, so back-in not a problem. Good services and free cable TV. Wi-Fi free in Rec Hall. A paid Wi-Fi service also available. Verizon phone service 'roaming'. Park is in a good location as there are many attractions to see in the area. We stayed here for six nights and would definitely use again.

Very large, level site with plenty of room and pleasant views. Well maintained campground and Staff (particularly TOM) very friendly and extremely helpful. This is a benchmark for how campgrounds should be run! Would definitely recommend a stay her for a few days as there are local sites to see. Wi-Fi and Cable TV worked well.

Date of Stay:

Not a destination resort but OK for an overnight stay. Site was plenty large enough and level (site No. 12). Don't stay here if you don't like freeway noise! Had to ask the office to turn off an outside speaker which was blaring out loud music from a local radio station, which they did. Otherwise, staff very helpful. Cable TV OK and wifi OK but then 'locked out' at night.

Date of Stay:

Very pleasant campground with friendly, helpful staff. We were escorted to our site by a very pleasant member of staff. Nice views of the mountains on outer edge of campground (we stayed in No. 5). Sites a little close together. Wi-Fi was fair to good. No TV service at all. Very handy location for visiting Teton & Yellowstone NP's without paying outrageous site fees!

Date of Stay:

Average campground but very spacious pull-throughs. Limited cable TV and Wi-Fi good. Pleasant open aspect with mountain views. Close to Town Center, Fuel and 2 Supermarkets within walking distance. An ideal location for visiting Sawtooth NRA. Poor check in procedure as Management was rarely seen. No Verizon cell phone service at all. Excellent laundry with brand new equipment.

The campground is in a lovely, quiet setting and, in summer 2009, had been for sale for some time. We were made welcome on arrival with help to site. Our site was lightly-shaded grass and very nice but with very uneven and sloping ground. You may be lucky and get an untroubled visit – that didn’t happen for us. One night local residents and the owner let off fireworks close to the camping area. That didn’t last too long but was somewhat surprising in a commercial campground. On another occasion, during the day, children and adults raced dirt bikes and ATVs in the campground, plainly unconcerned by the sign specifying 5 mph for safety. The campground was being used as if it were private land. At the weekend, in the early evening, the owner’s visitors began arriving. First a Class C parked untidily near to us and the noisy generator was started at 9pm – even though it had an electric pedestal! My complaint brought an explanation from the owner that the driver was likely 'stoned'. She woke the camper’s owner and the generator was stopped. After more visitors’ arrival, the house became noisy with loud red-neck music being played, some of it live, and easily heard at our site fairly close by. This music went on until the early hours of the morning, occasionally becoming much louder whenever doors were opened. It was after 2 am when the campground eventually became quiet. Such rowdy behavior on regular campgrounds would have resulted in campers being required to leave, but this behavior was down to the owner's friends. To repeat, all these activities were not from campers but from the owners and friends who descended at the weekend but may be there at other times.
