“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

“Nice, quiet and relaxing”

Reviewed May 24, 2017

Overall Rating

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

“Well kept campground, but a little out of the way and mosquitos.”

Reviewed Mar 15, 2016

Overall Rating

I can't say anything BAD about Brantley Lake State Park, except it was a little out of the way and it's a looooong road into the park. It has a great playground for the kids and each site has a covered table and bbq. We only stayed two nights, to visit the caverns, so we didn't really spend much time at the campground. However, the mos... more

“Good place to recharge, refill and still have some peace. ”

Reviewed Nov 19, 2014

Overall Rating

This state park is easy to get to and is a relaxing spot. Great place to dump, refill your tanks and recharge your batteries after boondocking one of the nearby national forest. There are three sites that have full hookups, and two of them are first come first serve. They do have a dump station on site, so you can keep some money in yo... more
