This was our first trip to Ruidoso, and had small children thinking that the trout pond would be something a little more special than it was. It is basically a big concrete pond with large fish you can feed. As for the sites, we were at the back of the park right up against the national forest. This part was great as we would just go straight out the door and head into the forest for hikes. The sites however, were really close together. Could not even extend our awning all the way. The views are great, though. We spent more time behind the trailer than out the door as we had more room there. The staff was great and extremely kind and friendly. Great place to ride mountain bikes (in the forest) and hike.
We were fortunate to stumble upon this park. When we first arrived, we were slightly confused as it seemed like there were two parks merged together. Also, at first glance we were slightly concerned that the sites were going to be tight and cramped. But once we were checked in and at the site, it was all smooth sailing. Turns out there there was plenty of room. We had our awning out and still had a yard area where the kids were throwing a ball. Owners were amazing. The grounds were immaculate. You could tell that they put love and energy into keeping the grounds in top shape. We stayed in site 44 which was right on the lower Blanco River. The kids had a blast playing in the water. I am a picky person when it comes to RV parks, but this was a very safe, comfortable, and enjoyable place to stay. Would definitely recommend.
Overall was a good park to stay in. We stayed in site #2 which was nice because it had a small fenced in yard which was great for the kids. The entire park uses large gravel instead of asphalt or other materials for the road. Also, not much in regards to trees and plants. So the park felt a little warmer than usual due to hot rock everywhere. The sites did have plenty of space because we were able to open the awning easily. The views weren't that great here because we had a tanning salon view out of the window. But all in all, was a clean, quiet, and friendly park.
