Rate reflects PA 1/2 price for one night. We got here the day they fixed the indoor pool: very nice. Park is easy in and out with long pull-through sites so we didn't have to unhook. Cable TV is ok as well as the Wi-Fi. Sites are level gravel with some trees. They have 2 fenced dog parks, nice store, and DVD rental. Watch the speed bumps. The owners are very nice and the info they hand out is very helpful for the area and cavern. We would stay here again. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Called and made reservations and was not told the pool was closed...very disappointing as we were traveling with kids. The Wi-Fi was poor, did not work most of the time. Site was level, dirt, and the water pressure was good. Thinking I would check somewhere else next time I am in Carlsbad. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Expensive, but we used PPA. It's 16 miles to Carlsbad Caverns and 2 miles to Walmart. This park has a lot of oil workers, but it is not a bother. Big lots and it is well maintained. It is not a beautiful situated park. It is like a big parking lot but with big grown trees and some spaces do have grass. We sure would stay here for one night again. For tents, they keep the grass nice and green even in this drought. The pool was still closed, but when we were there they starting to fill it. Very friendly owners/keepers. They have a RV shop/repair next door and they will come to your site to work on your rig. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a pull-through site in the center row. Wi-Fi was too slow to be of much use. The indoor pool was drained and actively being worked on. This was in a good location for seeing the Caverns and convenient for the town too. The free DVD rental was a nice touch. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the second time at this park. It is very adequate for a few days exploring the area. Close to highway, but not to noisy. Good power and water and good sites. We were in the back-ins by the fence which are very large. Roads and sites are gravel and there are picnic tables. Office staff very nice. Wi-Fi was good with several connections to choose from. Park is big-rig friendly. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is relatively close to Carlsbad Caverns NP. The sites are average, we had a back-in, dirt and gravel. The pool was down with “Major Problems”. When I made my reservation I asked to be put in a site with good Wi-Fi coverage. I work from my RV and need this service. When I checked in I asked if the site was near the Wi-Fi, and was told yes. What I wasn’t told was that the Wi-Fi was down and wasn’t going to be coming back any time soon. I called the office to complain and they said they would have someone look at it and get it working. Never happened. I would have appreciated them being honest with me when I made my reservation and asked about a site near the Wi-Fi, I would have made another choice. But I guess they would rather have the money than a good reputation. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

This desert campground is about 5 miles outside of Carlsbad, on the way to the UNESCO designated Carlsbad Caverns, which are only 22 miles away. There is a heated indoor pool that has not been open since fall of 2011, laundry ($1.25 wash, $1 dry), decent Wi-Fi, free cable TV (60 channels), but recycling is not available. Nearby, propane is available by the gallon. At $38 for a 30 amp EWS (electricity, water and sewer) back-in site (with Good Sam discount), this campground is overpriced. However, it is convenient to the Caverns and Carlsbad. There are other RV Parks nearby, but I do not know their rates. AAA White City RV park is much closer to the Caverns but 25 miles from the amenities of Carlsbad. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here over spring break in a travel trailer to view Carlsbad Caverns. The park is clean and taken care of. The sites are right on top of each other and you are packed in like sardines. The pool was closed for repairs which was part of why we chose this place. The owners were extremely nice and helpful. We got a free DVD rental for checking in, they had 800 movies to choose from. The park is about 20 miles from the Caverns. The cable was okay and other utilities fine. I am not sure it was worth $38.00 a night. We would stay here again but will do more looking first.

We had a great time although the pool was not working. We went with 4 boys. The owners and staff went out of their way to make up for the pool being down during Spring break. Very friendly staff and owners. They are working on updating the entire facilities. Away from town but close enough to get around. The other RV Parks were either to many rigs and not enough space, small, or more expensive for a family of 6. After seeing the other parks - I would definitely come back here again. We had a great time! Nice clean site, room for a tent for the boys, easy access to the caverns (recommend reservations for the non self touring tours). Our site was quiet and in the back of the park. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Price was for one night on PA and one with GS discount. Laundry OK. Good shower except for a faulty lock on the door. Seems expensive but management was friendly and helpful. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

I guess this park would be okay if they only charged $20.00 per night. We were charged $37.40 a night with a discount. They say they have a indoor pool, but not now. Gravel and dusty and mostly permanent residents. Little on the run down side for the price. I guess we are just spoiled after our stay at Buckhorn Lake RV Resort in Kerrville, TX. But I guess their draw is they are the closest RV park to Carlsbad Caverns. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We drove here after checking out the closer one to the caverns and liked this one better (especially with PA pricing). Spaces felt larger and more expansive. We also liked the shower building better. Would stay again. Pool was not in operation. They also included a free dvd coupon and this park had cable TV with a ton of stations (needed for a Thursday night and March Madness). We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Friendly staff. Sites are level (gravel). Fairly close to highway but traffic noise was not an issue. Used the laundry facilities which were in good working order. We were there for two nights. Note: water pressure is very high so you will need a reducer. Would stay here again. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is with passport book discount & 10 percent Good Sams discount. So two nights cost $61.62. Expensive. No grass, sort of trashy looking. Staff are friendly and helpful. It is not the closest campground to Carlsbad Caverns. wifi worked good. Cable included. Pool not working. Would not stay here again. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Probably best choice if visiting Carlsbad Caverns. Friendly staff. Got a coupon good for one night DVD from their large selection. Good Wi-Fi connectivity and through out. Down graded to 7 because restrooms / showers were too cold to use. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Tent Trailer.
