There's so much to do around here! Here are some suggestions:
ONE DAY ITINERARY The world-famous Carlsbad Caverns, open year round. On your way, stop at the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. See one of the most amazing greenhouses in the southwest and have your own close encounters with the wildlife! The Living Desert is just 15 minutes south of CARLSBAD KOA.
TWO DAY ITINERARY A morning at the Pecos River in Carlsbad. Take a picnic and your fishing pole with you! After lunch, head out to Sitting Bull Falls to refresh your body and soul. Leashed pets are welcome there. Be sure to take your camera! Day 2: an early trip to the Caverns, with a tour of the Living Desert on your way back to the park. Don't forget, we can have dinner waiting for you!
THREE DAY ITINERARY Now you'll have time to check out some of the great restaurants in the area: Rojas, Chapz, LaFonda, The Wellhead, Chaos Cafe, Eversprings and Lucy's, to name just a few. Then make a day of it in Roswell, less than an hour north of us. Did you know that the famous UFO Museum is not the only attraction there? Don't miss the Goddard Space Museum in Roswell, describing the history of rocketry. For artistic tastes, the Anderson Museum of Southwestern Contemporary Art is there - as is the Roswell Museum and Art Center.
Other favorite day trips include the breathtaking view from Cloudcroft, with its community of woodcarvers and stone cutters, the casinos at Ruidoso and the brilliant white dunes of the world's largest gypsum dune field: the White Sands National Monument, 275 sq miles of shimmering white desert.
We are located halfway between the city of Carlsbad and the beautiful town of Artesia! Both, just minutes away!
The small city of Artesia: less than 15 minutes north of us! A favorite walk-about town, beautiful landscaping, rich history, art and theater, the Heritage Walkway, with its beautiful tiles and fountains, interesting shops and the amazing sculptures on Main Street.
