“Lovely and reasonably priced state park, wind can be crazy though”

Reviewed Apr 29, 2018

Overall Rating

Beautiful park to stay. We were slated to stay 4 nights but the day we were leaving was going to be 50mph winds so we stayed 2 more nights. Easy access to town and the caverns (about an hour drive). Ranger frequently drives by and everything was quiet. We have a covered patio and picnic bench which was nice. We were in site #22 on the ... more

The positives: proximity to Carlsbad, quiet, water at site, dump station. Negatives: wind, wind, wind but mostly the unclean and unserviced bathrooms!!! We saw the host's corvette, jet skis, rv and 4 wheeler, and it looked like he/she was hosting company by all the cars around, but never saw the host or anyone caring about the trash b... more

“Lovely state park”

Reviewed Apr 18, 2018

We stayed at this park for a week in late March/early April 2018 in Site 17. The park is far away from any road noise situated on Brantley Lake. The sites are very roomy and spread out. We had water and 50 amp but no sewer, a nice picnic table shelter with a wind blocking wall. The bathrooms and showers were clean and included a han... more

We used the New Mexico State Park reservation system, only because I am the type to plan trips thoroughly. We have stayed there three times now. Once just my little family of four in a tent years ago. Once with a large group of international and local college students as the faculty mentors. and most recently as just the 3 of us, on... more

“Doesn’t meet the standards of most other NM State Parks.”

Reviewed Mar 29, 2018

Overall Rating

Arrived mid afternoon on a Sunday in March. All the trash cans were overflowing and that’s to be expected on a Sunday, but they weren’t emptied until Tuesday morning and in the meantime trash blew all over the campground. No one attempted to pick any of it up. The bathrooms were pretty dirty as well and the interior walls needed a pain... more

“Great desert landscape”

Reviewed Jan 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Great quite park. Miles from the main road. Site 24 has a 50 foot pad and easily accommodated our 40ft 5th wheel, semi truck toter, and a full size passenger van. No laundry. No staff in the office during the off season.

“quiet, clean, close to carlsbad caverns.”

Reviewed Jan 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Drove in late at night and luckily found a spot. The location is nice, the view is vast dessert terrain with a decently sized lake. The skies out here are something else compared to what I usually see in the midwest. There are two pay drops, one at the entrance and one at the actual site (I only mention this because I was worried I wou... more

We stayed here in late May and there was some wind, thundershowers and lots of sunshine. There were few campers in the park but a few over nighters came in every day. The spots were clean and well kept, no fire rings but barbecue stands were at all sites. All sites had a ramada and a small wall for a wind break. The views were spec... more

“Easy access in, close enough to Carlbad Caverns”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here late March 2017. One thing to note up front is to pay attention when booking, not all sites have sewer. Not a big deal for us, but I didn't notice when I booked it. Our rate reflects a non-sewer site. They have covered patios at most if not all of the sites in the RV loop. The bathrooms were ok. The showers were not ... more

“Best choice for seeing Carlsbad Caverns. Not much else around.”

Reviewed Feb 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Came here for Carlsbad Caverns and it did not disappoint. There's not a lot of options for camping nearby. I read horrible things about White's RV park which is the closest to the Caverns. Chose to stay here and make the drive. The drive into the campground is long but roads are in good condition. This is New Mexico in the Spring s... more
