We stayed in the Blanco campground which was great! Lots of privacy, gravel pads and roads which was handy with all the rain the fell during the weekend. There is a table and fire rings, and water and electric in all the campsites. Some camp sites had shelters over the tables, and others did not. The bathrooms had 2 showers in them and were clean; but could use some little maintenance done to them. The park itself was clean and quiet. The camp hosts were nice and friendly, and on Saturdays at the visitors’ center, they have free coffee and muffins. Would definitely stay here again. The nightly rate reflects the price of the NM State Park camping pass.

Camped here for 3 nights, nice clean campground; has two restrooms, one on each side of the campground. Clean but has no showers. You have to drive to Navajo lake campground to use their showers. Some sites have electric and others do not; as well as shelter over the tables. The tables could use a little more maintenance, as in being power washed. There is no water at the sites. Water spigots are located throughout the campground so you will need either water jugs to haul to your trailer or a very long hose. The price we paid reflects the New Mexico State Park camping pass.

First time to this State Park and it was enjoyable and well maintained. The sites have covered shelter over the table, and a privacy wall, which is a nice touch. The park is under fire restriction so we couldn’t use the charcoal grill, but did notice that there is no fire pit in the camp sites. The site has a paved pad, water and electric, the bathhouse is clean with three shower stalls, hot water in the showers. Lake is low due to the drought, but still had some boats and jet skis on the lake. The town of Carlsbad is 12 miles away and approximately 54 miles to the caverns. The price reflects the New Mexico State Park camping pass.

We stayed here 3 nights in the lions beach campground loop. All sites have water and electric hook ups and paved trailer pads, cover tables on a concrete slab, and a fire ring. Well kept, camp hosts and rangers are friendly, the bathrooms are in older buildings with two showers and kept clean; but the buildings are old and could use an upgrade. The state park’s WI-FI connected every time but it is slow; overall, the park is clean; the marina is a great place to spend a few hours and can rent boats. T or C is only minutes away from the State Park to pick up supplies or have lunch/Dinner in town. The $4 price is with a New Mexico State Park camping pass.

Great place, great views! Campsites are spread out so you do have privacy. Bathrooms are clean with two shower stalls. The only bad thing I can say is that the showers have no temperature control and is only lukewarm to cold water while showering. The hiking trails are nice and the visitor’s center has a lot of history about the area. The price reflects the New Mexico State Park camping pass. We will stay here again.

Been coming to this campsite for years. Love it, pretty private, paved spots with shelters, grill and fire pits. Some sites have electricity, and others are primitive. The sites do not have water at them. The water spigots are in the middle, and a will need a container or a very long hose to fill up your trailer. The park is pretty well clean, restrooms were clean. The only downside I have with it, is that the concrete tables under the shelters need to be power washed. They are grease spots on them from previous campers.

The park was beautiful. Spacious camp spots so lots of privacy. We had full hooks ups and everything worked well. The park Wi-Fi was spotty. When it worked, it was fast, but could not connect all the time. The laundry room in the “D” loop is really nice, we used it. Just remember that they have change machines in the men’s and women’s bathrooms as well as the one in the hallway. The reason I mention this is because the hallway change machine was out of coins and I went to another place to get change, then found out about the ones in the restrooms. The only complaint I have about this state park is the price, I paid $26 dollars a night for camping, PLUS we had to pay another $8 for a day pass for each day. We spent 4 days here.

Nice park, spaces are tight though, and the exits to the main street can be rough. The WiFi was spotty, but I had my Verizon hot spot with me so it wasn't an issue. When we arrived, we had a choice of spots to choose from: we took the back in spot under the trees for the shade. The staff was friendly and even helped back us into our spot, they also knew about all the attractions around town. A good BBQ place to eat, is called Bubba's, I also recommend going to the Cody Cattle Company for the dinner and a show which is also down the same street headed towards Yellowstone. I will stay here again.

Really nice place; nice people running it; nice pool area which we used a lot; store has a lot of items that were reasonably priced. Overall a pretty quiet park. WI-FI worked great which I needed.

Really nice park, we stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it. I was surprised to see that they installed WI-FI throughout the campgrounds. I will take my laptop the next time and see how well they work.

Stayed here for 2 nights over memorial weekend to test the trailer since it hasn't been used for more then a year. The park was great, the staff was super friendly, enjoyed the pancakes, and really enjoyed the pool. We will stay here again just for a quick get away from town.
