Conroe, Texas
Reviewed 3 June 2016 via mobile

The showers and bathrooms were very clean. The owner helped us fix the tie down on our camper. He was very nice and very helpful. I'd definitely recommend. Clean bathrooms make a big difference. We always appreciate when the owners & staff make that a priority.

Reviewed 22 May 2016 via mobile

One of the nicer KOA's we've stayed at. Sites were large and management spreads people out leaving empty sights beside you instead of bunching everyone up together. Very nicely landscaped. We did not notice loud road noise as mentioned by others, it was far enough off the road to lessen truck traffic noise. Nice pet play area. Very good BBQ...

It was very clean as are most KOAs - has a barbeque dinner for a fee that they will deliver to your campsite or you can enjoy in the huge nice community room- tent camping spots are just in a field- we were van camping so they put us in a more private spot with a picnic shelter but next...

The wife and I were looking for a campground to stay at while visiting the Carlsbad, NM area. Picking a KOA campground was not what we were originally looking for. We were looking for space in the Guadalupe Mountains State Park, but it was all full for the days we wanted and all the other campgrounds around had many "not...

This is a great space with a lot of great amenities. The bathroom is the best i've ever seen at a campground, and the club room was so nice to have when we had bad weather. They keep the ground very well maintained. We stayed in the basic tent site, which was just okay. The site was very small, near...

Very clean and quiet. Best bath house I have seen in awhile. Friendly, courteous staff.We ate the BBQ brisket they prepare on site- and they bring to your campsite! It was good. Wish I was staying longer.

I think the campground is a bit off the beaten path but this whole place is so that's okay! The staff is super helpful! My husband just mentioned we couldn't get the cable programmed and they showed up at our coach less than 30 minutes later! He hadn't even asked for help! The BBQ is outrageous, try the sausage for...

We stayed 2 nights. The campsite was incredibly clean. The staff was nice and very helpful. The community room had a wide variety of games. The showers were roomy and safe. Would definitely recommend Carlsbad KOA.

This is a very expensive park! It is nice, large spots, but you will pay. You will also pay greatly for laundry and electricity along with any propane you need if you buy it on site. We never had Wi-Fi due to an apparent lightning strike. At night sometimes the smell was so bad we literally could not sleep. I...

We stayed here after several nights at a less than poor rv park. This park is very quiet and off the hwy so no road noise. I feel the lighting could be better, the lights at the Pet area would not stay on so you couldn't see your dog without a light. They also have rv room service and the...
