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.

Cannot rave about this one. Overprices at $37. Sites are very close together, no privacy or even the feeling of such. Just another RV "resort" that packs them in like sardines, and one that needs a little TLC at that. Located convenient to the Caverns if that is your goal, but I would not return to this park. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Closest nice park to the caverns. Easy in and out pull through sites, gravel beds that were pretty level. Hookups in good repair. Park is a little dated, but it seems like they are working daily to improve things. Stayed 4 nights and gave us the PA rate for one night and GS rate for the rest. Kids enjoyed the swings and pool. Would recommend this one over another nearby park. Didn't stay there, and glad we didn't. Looked pretty shabby from the drive by. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I would have rated this campground higher if there hadn't been a problem with the voltage on hot days. Voltage dropped to less than 103 volts and my EMS automatically cut off power to the Motorhome to avoid damaging the motors in the AC units. This happened almost every day. There are also several workers staying in the park who leave for work around 5:30am each morning. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Wide spacious spaces, indoor pool, playground and store. Very nice campground within 45 minutes of the Caverns. We stayed in the back section and our site was about 50X60. Very friendly hosts. Didn’t care for the indoor pool but that’s just us. Had pony rides, a hay ride and a turtle pen. The campground was very quiet in the evenings. We would stay here again and recommend this campground if visiting the Caverns. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a good spot for going to the caverns, or exploring the area. Though it is a bit far to the caverns, there is only one park closer and from a distance, it didn't look like much. The other parks in the area are north of town. The sites are gravel and it is very dusty and no trees for the transient sites (they do have a lot of seasonal and permanent residents who have the sites which have the few trees on the property.) The sites are extremely wide and it was easy to back our 40' rig into. Most of the transient sites are back-ins, but it looked like there are a couple of pull-throughs. The Wi-Fi was sporadic but you could go to the office and get Wi-Fi there (although slow). Despite the shortcomings, we would stay again because it appears to be the best choice available when visiting the caverns. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Pool still not heated. When checking in, the desk clerk gave us a coupon for one free DVD rental and a welcome package with some free goodies. Definitely not a destination park but good for a couple of nights. Rate reflects Passport America including tax and 50 amp site. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great game room; friendly staff at this park. The heater in the pool was broken. Had high school girls going around the park begging you for magazine subscriptions. The people were quiet. They gave a nice gift pack of samples and had a huge selection of DVD's, offered the first one for free. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was an old KOA. It has seen better days but it is clean, safe and reasonably priced. The sites are small but they are all pull thru and easy to get into. It is also convenient to the caverns and to town. It has a nice rec room, lots of DVD's, and a pool. The staff is good. I have stayed there before and I would stay there again. There also is a nice playground. There is an RV repair place right next to the campground. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The Park is fairly close to the Carlsbad Caverns, maybe the closest for PA members. All dirt roads, including the sites. It's a bit dusty, but there are some trees on the plus side. Very friendly and helpful staff. We booked two nights and got a DVD rental voucher. A place where we would stay again. The rate is for PA members. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an old KOA, composed of gravel and dirt, with a few trees and average-sized spaces. On the plus side, it's convenient to Carlsbad Caverns and the town of Carlsbad, has a friendly staff, and even gives a packet of product samples and coupons on check-in. But it is dusty, and is beginning to show it's age. Without the Passport America discount this park would be way overpriced, but the PA rate of $22 ($3.00 extra for 50A) makes it a reasonable place to stay. There aren't a lot of choices here; with Passport America this is probably your best bet. We'd stay here again. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is showing signs of aging and disrepair. The price however reflects a higher quality park. I guess they are using the Cavern visitors as a means of support. A number of full-time residents inhabit the facility. The laundry facility was "clean" but felt unkempt. The sites are all dirt and difficult to ascertain the markings. The staff was less than friendly. I will not stay here again. Nor will I recommend this to others. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Very clean and very welcoming park. Even received product samples when we arrived! Desk staff were very professional and friendly. Convenient for going north to Roswell and south to Carlsbad Caverns. This park actually had some trees! Would definitely camp here again if we were in the area. Rate is PA and including taxes. We camped at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
