Other reviews have trashed this place but it is a nice little campground in the desert. It is $30 a night and has full hook-up and good Wi-Fi. The campground is on the road to the caverns which is 7 miles away.

I've never seen a child or any pedestrian, in fact, at any one of the many crossings in the town. Imagine traffic on the New England Highway traveling for at least one kilometer at 20 km/hour. Watching the cars is like watching a slow-motion movie.
The town is full of four-way stop signs. All traffic must stop ...
... 3pm, the first availability.
We spent the morning in the free part of the complex, starting by descending through the Natural Entrance: we rejected the elevator and walked 750 ft down a paved spiral path into the mouth of the cave. We had hired an audio guide each which proved to be well worth it – clear descriptions of the history of the caves plus the many formations we saw on the way in. It was very deep and steep ...
