As noted many oilfield workers, but so is Every other RV park for miles. We got the last site. It was a double so person in front of us made us have to unhook to back out ( no huge biggie, pretend it was a back in). Facilities need updating badly, but money is pouring in right now with few using them. Another oilfield normal. Staff super friendly and helpful. Probably best park in town. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
Not many RV options in this area - this one is about 35-40 minutes from Carlsbad Caverns. People behind the counter are nice enough, but some parts of the park are apparently under construction, or at least our site was - jumbled mess of dirt and broken blocks right outside our door. Also, they said we were in a pull-thru, but it was really a pull-in but back out. Some of their sites are really long sites with two sets of hookups so if someone is parked in front of you, you can't pull through. Also, trash can has an annoying red flashing light that flashes 24/7 and trash was overflowing. At least they answer their phone. Not the worst site ever and definitely not the best. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

As per previous comments, mainly oilfield workers. Overall facilities are in poor condition, the washroom facilities had peeling paint, bad odors etc. They did have signs indicating renovations were in progress but no evidence of any work being done. Would only stay here if there was no other choice. Very overpriced for the quality of services provided. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Way overpriced for just water and electric and a gravel parking lot type of camping. Before I checked in I asked if they had Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi doesn't work with laptops. What?! I asked if any other nearby RV parks had Wi-Fi. They said no (another lie). I wanted to leave and get my money back for the extra days. They refused since "I didn't give them 24 hours notice". Well, I didn't know they were lying to me 24 hours ago! Terrible management. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is full of oil field workers. That being said, it is a good place to stay over night. Nice level and wide sites. We were guided to our site. I made a reservation over the phone and when we arrived, she was ready with all the paper work. Very efficient! She also provided lots of information about the town and cave. There is an indoor pool, nice laundry, two dog runs, and a very nice store. It's a little expensive but there is nothing else here! We would stay here again.

They may have 140 sites, but only about 10 are available. The rest are oil field workers. We were forced to pay the 50 amp price when we only needed 30 amps. Fairly noisy at 5:30 in the morning with all the diesel trucks leaving for work. Don't bother staying here. There is a very nice CG right by the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns.

Nice big park. Quite a few permanent stay in the front part of park but we had nice big spot in the back. Easy to get to the Caverns and downtown. Liked that they had a fenced off leash area for dogs. Would stay again if in area. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
This is a bare bones RV campground. The staff was exceptional and the best part of the park. The sites barely have gravel and only a few trees throughout. You can see that they are trying to make some improvements as some of the sites have newly placed patios at the site. If you can use a "back in" site, you might have a little grass, and, as I said, some of sites have patios,but you are still pretty much in the dirt. Its hard to rate this place. Carlsbad is a dry dusty place it self. The campground is a very dry dusty place too, and I doubt that could ever change. There are a lot of oil field workers that also stay there full time, but.did not seem to create any issues. They were in regular RV trailers, too. It was close to Carlsbad Caverns, which was our reason for being there. Would I stay again? Maybe, as I don't think there are that many choices. But it was so difficult to keep anything clean. Price reflects Good Sam, and I think for the place, it was a bit pricey, but the park was pretty full. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
This campground has just about anything you could want at a campground, but it is overpriced for just a one night stop. After being told on the phone that they would honor the Passport America price, when we got there we were told that they hadn't been accepting it for over two years now (even though we had stayed there 9 months ago under the PA discount), and they gave us only a 10% general discount. Check in took over half an hour, neither gentleman in the store was familiar with the procedure, and we were told they would bring us a receipt later on, as they didn't know how to produce one. Never got it. As I said, there is absolutely everything here, if you are going to be here long enough to use it. But for a quick overnight, while on the road, it was quite overpriced. I only rated it an 8 due to the check-in process and the fact that the spaces are very close together. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Carlsbad is a small desert town. Carlsbad RV Park is a little outside of town - toward the Caverns. It was perfect for us as we intended to visit Roswell 1 day (1.5 hours away) and the caverns another day. The park has no entertainment itself, but if you are in Carlsbad, you are here for a reason. Sites are large, hosts are friendly, and it was very quiet - even after the oil workers came in for the night. There is no grass to speak of so dogs cannot play well. We stayed 3 days and would do so again if we come back this way. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this park partly because of their reviews but mostly because of their location. They are situated approximately 16 miles to Carlsbad Caverns NP and a little farther (on the same road) to Guadalupe Mountains NP. It's hard to beat this location if you are sightseeing in this area. When you enter the park, you see some very small, cramped sites in the first two rows (occupied perhaps by long term guests?). But then as you drive to the back part of the park, the sites become much larger and are more spacious. We were pleasantly surprised. The office staff was pleasant and the park was clean and appeared to be well maintained. We don't travel with children so we don't look for swimming pools, miniature golf courses or McDonald's playgrounds. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great proximity to Carlsbad Caverns. Lots of oil rig workers stay here so men's shower could have been cleaner but overall good stay for 2 days for us. Little store in office sells basic food necessities which is handy. Pretty tidy spot. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Front office was excellent with much info passed out. All the amenities of this once KOA are here and seem to work well. What is UNFORGIVABLE is the condition of the "dog run". It is a fenced in area infested with ants and more grass burrs than can be found in the next 10 counties. I would've rated this park a little higher otherwise. If you have dogs and stay here, DO NOT use the dog run! We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

OK park for visit to Carlsbad Caverns. Slightly south of town and about 18 miles north of the national park. Gravel double-wide somewhat shaded sites with table just long enough for our 34 foot RV. Ask if your rig is larger. Indoor pool open but we didn't use. Very friendly and informative check in and small gift shop. Free Wi-Fi. Used to be PA but dropped. Used GS discount. Bit pricey for quality but would stay again. Not much option in area. Good clean bathroom and showers with nice sized handicap shower area.

Good level park. No cable, but loaned a DVD at no charge. Clean pool. Park is currently very crowded due to local oil boom. Could not get Wi-Fi up and working. Good park if going to Carlsbad but a 30 mile round trip if you want to see the bats leave cave at dusk. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
