RV & Tent campground located near Ruidoso NM in the scenic Lincoln National Forest is a quiet family and pet friendly park. The new owners, Barry and Donna Bell, are a warm and welcoming couple. They are making improvements to this great location located within driving distance of the many great attractions such as White Sands, Valley of Fire, Billy the Kid museum, Smokey the Bear museum, and others. The nearby town of Ruidoso is a busy tourist area for winter and fair weather campers. We enjoyed it here and extended our stay.

We enjoyed our stay, spent about 2 weeks. Park is very clean and site are great. Would stay again if back in Ruidoso.

Shelton, Jan 7/26/2011

We checked in here on July 2011 and stayed for 2 weeks. We have a 38 ft 5th wheel and the park has nice large wide sites. The park is clean and in great shape. The bath rooms are very clean and the camp ground is very clean. The owner was very nice. We will for sure stay here again. Had a great time !!!!!

Threlkeld, Joy 7/23/2011

Its a little off the beaten path but nice. We went when it had just snowed and it was beautiful. Lots of trees and the river runs right in front of the cabins. More like a stream. Cabins are cool and they are not real stricked. Just clean up after yourself. We will visit there again
