This is a beautiful KOA Campground in a very nice location. We had planned to visit Carlsbad Caverns and Roswell and this campground is at just about the halfway point. The facility is well maintained and the staff was very nice. They have something I...More

We stayed here two nights in the tent village and we had a great time. We busted Carlsbad Caverns in the mornings (an easy 45 minute drive) and spent our afternoons and evenings here. Since the temp was in the 100s both days, we spent...More

In our limited RV travel experience, KOA's seem to be widely different, and this one rates as good as some of the RV resorts we've stayed at. Yes, it's kind of in the middle of nowhere (half way between Artesia and Carlsbad), and it is...More
