Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad Reviews
Park was nice. Rangers and camp host where very pleasant. Gave them a four star because only one shower in women's bathroom worked out of three. That one didn't have very much pressure didn't even wash my hair because I didn't think I would get soap out. The bathrooms were clean and warm , the shower water was warm. My husband did inform one of the rangers and he stated he would look into it. I would definitely come back and give them another try.
Beautiful park to stay. We were slated to stay 4 nights but the day we were leaving was going to be 50mph winds so we stayed 2 more nights. Easy access to town and the caverns (about an hour drive). Ranger frequently drives by and everything was quiet. We have a covered patio and picnic bench which was nice. We were in site #22 on the reserved side and the view was great. Price was very reasonable. Site was pretty level and easy to get in and out. Would recommend and we would stay there again.
Like almost all NM state parks, it needs some TLC and $ spent on it, but this one is quiet and hosts are nice people. Many spots aren't level, but 2-3" of blocks will fix the worst of them. Overall, I really enjoy staying here.
Beautiful vistas, friendly staff. If your looking for a quiet place to stay, here it is. Just enjoy a campfire, if it's not too windy, and gave at the multitude of stzrs
Very nice park. A bit windy while we were there. Not sure if it's always like that or not.
