Beautiful campground located close enough to Carlsbad Caverns National Park. (45 minutes). Based on a previous reviewer's comments, we reserved site 4, which had a sewer hookup. There are just two other sites with sewer, and they are first come/first served only. Our site barely fit our 34' motorhome but was still acceptable. Half of the campground (the east side) has reservable sites, while the other half is first come/first served. If we hadn't wanted sewer (they do have a dump station), we would love to have stayed at site 14, which was spacious, private, and had a fantastic view of the desert. Non-sewered sites are $14. Very peaceful campground and not a bad campsite in the whole place. Large spaces between all sites. Wish we could have stayed longer.
We left the campground two hours after arriving. Yes, it is a beautiful campground as other reviews stated, but we felt unsafe here. There were only two other sites occupied, and neither appeared to be a host. It looked fine when we arrived in the daylight. We set up our rig, put our money in the drop box, then found that our Verizon signal was very weak, there was no security, and cars would cruise through the campground that obviously were not here for camping. Two stopped in front of our rig and seemed to be conducting a transaction. When they left, my wife and I unhooked and left immediately (despite just finishing a long drive from the Grand Canyon) and checked in at the Avi Casino KOA. If there were more campers and a security gate with code, and a host, we would have definitely stayed.
