No full time greeter after six pm, no camp host. Filled with nice people, mostly transient oil and gas fields workers. By no means a five star facility. Bathrooms are unattended to on the weekends...dirty, no toilet paper in either the men’s or women’s bathrooms, lots of dust due to speeding of vehicles through the property. Definitely not 15 minutes from Carlsbad Caverns. Pet friendly. No swimming pool or other recreational facilities on site. Price was reasonable but my trip through Carlsbad next month will find me at another facility or a local motel. Sorry for the bad review but other RV’ers need to know that this is a basic amenity facility. Consider some heavy duty park maintenance and infrastructure repairs and I might be back.
Spent 2 nights in Aug 2018 @ $45 per night with discount. 25 to 35 minutes N of Carlsbad Caverns Park. This is a gravel parking lot set up for RV's. Many monthlies who appear to work in construction or the oil fields. Lots of dusty traffic early & late, because of this. All sites gravel, pull-through, level & FHP including cable and WiFi (cable requires free issued box and call a to provider to turn on). Electrical volts barely enough during 100 degree weather. This is bad for AC. Showers are new and clean. No place for the kiddies to play! Construction in front of park on city street when I was here. Laundry $2 to wash & $1.50 to dry. One of the more expensive places to stay for next to nothing extra. Roads wide and level, plenty of room. Will not return or recommend.
Park opened in September of 2016 and already about 1/2 filled with permanent residents. Some are laborers who come back in evening with loud trucks and music. Would have loved to have windows open to the cool night air...even with windows closed it was noisy.
All of units on site were bumper pulls and 5th wheels.
I and and one other class a were only two temps that came in. With so many area attractions and the nice weather would have thought more plus being Friday.
The pull throughs are level, gravel. Large shared grassy area with one table and one grill, As other poster stated. Bathrooms are nice though in dire need of a Broom..wear shoes. Nice laundry room all the machines were in working order. No real litter to speak of other than small stuff around camp site.
The one employee was nice and accomidating.
Pices were high for a very plain jane park.(zero activities)
Pet friendly though no dog run.
Park is planning to expand soon.
This is a newly opened RV park. The sites are gravel and level pull throughs, with spacious areas between. Interestingly, RVs pull in from the opposite direction from neighbor, so two share a grassy area, with doors facing each other. Very neighborly. Landscaping is yet to be completed; there is some grass and small trees, yet to fill out. While a bit rough right now, Bud's Place will be awesome when completed. The manager is very efficient and accommodating.
