“A nice little campground, but with a few minor issues. ”

Reviewed Aug 28, 2018

Overall Rating

We needed one last “hit” of mountains before we headed back to the heat of Texas, and found Along the River through Campendium. Overall, it’s a nice little park, and we enjoyed our evening, but there are one or two things to know.

Before we get to that, let me start by saying the the staff here is wonderful. The site we had originally booked was going to have some electrical work done the next morning, so they gave us the choice of a different spot. (This wasn’t a bad thing, as the spot we had originally booked wasn’t very level, and would have been a challenge in our little teardrop.) We could have (should have?) gone with a spot across the river that runs through the campground, but chose a spot closer to the bathrooms.

That’s where the issues come in. First, the spot we ended up in (#9), was squeezed in to a corner of the park. Backing our little trailer in wasn’t easy, as we had to navigate a huge fifth wheel next to us. And the view from one side of our trailer was…of that fifth wheel’s dump hose. Now, if you’re in a huge 5’er or trailer, you’ll probably spend most of your time inside, or on the “patio side” under an awning. But in a small teardrop, we spend most of our time outside, or with both doors open, enjoying the outdoors. This wasn’t really an option in the site we had.

As for the bathrooms, there are two of them in a cute-looking building that faces the river. Each one has a nice-sized shower, a toilet, and a sink. What they didn’t have was hot water. (There was a sign saying guests could use the hot shower at the residence, but showering in someone’s private bathroom feels a bit weird to me.)

I don’t want to make it sound like this place is a hot mess. It isn’t. The property itself is really scenic, with the river running through it. We saw deer wandering through the sites across the water. And the staff was super-nice. I think if you have a bigger rig, and you pick the right site, you’ll have a great experience.

“Nice weekend getaway”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2017

Overall Rating

We spent the weekend of March 17th here and had a very relaxing stay. It's only 15 minutes from Ruidoso if you need supplies. The owner and host, Barry, was very helpful and friendly. He escorted us to our space(we have a 25' Bigfoot travel trailer) and not only spotted us while we backed in but leveled our trailer afterwards! The spaces are close together but the tranquil sound of the river (more the size of a creek) behind us made up for the close proximity to our neighbors. Cell phone service is very spotty but they have a free land line at the office you can use. They also have free Wi-Fi. We didn't care if we had either service because we came to enjoy the peace and quiet of camping. All of the spaces on the south end of the park overlook the river. We stayed in space 43 with full hook ups. Barry will also deliver firewood at your campsite, for a very reasonable price, if you so desire. All in all a very nice place to spend the weekend!
