The Great Outdoors

You won’t need to drive too far to get out into the desert for some wildlife spotting or outdoor recreation when you're motorhome camping at Carlsbad RV Park and Campground. Just outside of Carlsbad, you can see Brantley Lake State Park. This nature park boasts a large lake, fully stocked with crappie, bass, carp, and catfish, a real hotspot for fishing enthusiasts. The climate is hot and dry, so splashing around or going for a boat ride in Brantley Lake is always a fantastic idea. The small campground by the water is ideally situated for RV rental camping if you want to stay on the shores of Brantley Lake.Bottomless Lakes State Park, up by Roswell, presents another opportunity to get familiar with the great outdoors of New Mexico. Established in 1933, Bottomless Lakes State Park was the first state park to exist in New Mexico. The park is named for its seemingly bottomless lakes that are the remnants of ancient limestone reefs from a time when the entire area was an inland sea. Lea Lake is designated for swimming, with concession stands and beach facilities lining its edges.When you book an RV in Eddy County, there are two spectacular national parks within an hour's drive. Carlsbad Caverns National Park is the site of a legendary cave system, and one of the most unique national parks in the country. You can take a self-guided tour through the underground labyrinths, and see cathedral-like caverns lined with ancient marine life fossils. You won’t believe your eyes when you see the massive stalactites and stalagmites inside the cavernous chasms or the daily migration of bats that pour out of the cave entrance each day during sunset. Next to the park on the other side of the state line is Guadalupe Mountains National Park, a gorgeous place to hike through in west Texas. This 80,000-acre park contains Guadalupe Peak, the highest elevation in all of Texas, along with some stunning wildlife and the Chihuahua Desert landscapes. There are countless other possibilities to see and visit when you find yourself in southern New Mexico.

City Sightseeing

Carlsbad RV Park and Campground is located close to the center of Carlsbad, so doing some shopping, dining, or sightseeing is easy to do on foot. The Carlsbad Museum and Art Center is a continuation of the magic you can feel when visiting the Carlsbad Caverns. The museum is the oldest municipal museum in New Mexico, built in 1931. There are beautiful artifacts and objects left behind by Mogollon, Anasazi, and other tribes, like pottery, tools, weapons, and pieces of elegant artwork. Also on display are mesmerizing photographs of the Carlsbad Caverns.Just outside of town, the Living Desert State Park provides you with a fantastic place to learn about desert ecosystems. Study the various plants and cacti that dot the Chihuahuan Desert and see native wildlife like bison, antelope, snakes, lizards, and more exotic creatures in this learning environment that people of all ages can enjoy.A quick drive north to Artesia yields some other treasures, like the Artesia Historical Museum & Art Center. This epic facility fosters a passion for history and artwork of New Mexico, much like the Carlsbad Museum and Art Center. A collection of priceless artifacts and artwork made by ancient tribes in the area helps tourists better understand the unique culture of the Land of Enchantment.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
