Campground is somewhat difficult to locate, even with good maps due to poor street signage in Ruidoso. The entrance to the Office is split away from the main campground, bisected by a stream. One has to circle back to enter main camping premises. There is an old, deep concrete tank (formerly a trout hatchery?) that was over grown with mat-algae over the summer and by our visit in November was ripe. Owners are draining and skimming it, but the appearance is an eyesore and generally a nuisance. We parked nearby the stream which was nice but not safe for young children. Camp borders on forest, good for hiking with kids. Found no amenities for young kids in this camp. Ruidoso is a very interesting town.
The main reason (other than passing through) for RV camping in this basic location is proximity (4 miles) to Bosque Del Apache Wildlife preserve. The owner's son was very helpful in parking us after dark. A rather loud train with bells and whistles did pass close by in the early morning hours. There is no TV cable hookup, although the area is well within antenna range of Albuquerque stations. Pastoral fields surround the park which is gravel. There are few camp amenities.
