It lies along U.S. Route 87 northwest of the city of San Angelo, the county seat of Tom Green County.[1] Its elevation is 2,024 feet (617 m).[2] Although Carlsbad is unincorporated, it has a post office, with the ZIP code of 76934;[3] the ZCTA for ZIP Code 76934 had a population of 1,332 at the 2000 census.[4]

Located along the North Concho River, Carlsbad was founded in 1907 under the name of Hughes. When the Post Office required the community to be renamed, residents chose the name of the spa town of Karlsbad in Bohemia, after local wells were discovered to yield mineral water.[5]
