Lovely, clean park, dog friendly and lots of shady spots. The real blessing is the fabulous staff who go out of their way to help and to assure a great experience. There was no cell service at our site, but a short walk up to the office allowed us to make calls. (We have Verizon)

“Dog Friendly and great access to the National Forest trails”

This is a great Family and dog friendly campground with the Bonito River running thru it. I stayed here for 2 months at the monthly rate and then various other shorter visits. Not only are the owners super accommodating, this place is right next to the National Forest where hiking abounds. The park is very dog friendly and you will frequently see their big Lab, Tango running beside their golf cart. There is dog walk area and can even use that for frisbee or throwing your dog a ball. I love site #32, its a full hookup which is not always my thing, but the site is just too good to pass up. However, if you do want this spot, you will have to reserve early! They also have about 19 sites next to the river. I love those spots and was in one of them early in my first visit. However, children like to play and throw rocks in the river and that upset Q because she wanted to go play with them! So site #32 is a pull thru as are all those sites in that row. I also like sites #24 or #53. #24 is a pull through also but does have quite a bit of shade if you have dogs and its summer time. I haven't stayed in #53 which is a back in site but I wouldn't be afraid to try it if "my spot" #32 was not open. Lots of hummingbirds migrate thru here and you will hear Wild Turkeys at dusk.

So for the downside, no connectivity, no cell service. The park is located in the this valley and so even though very close to Ruidoso, no cell phone service. The park does have WiFi near the bathhouse which works great near the bathhouse. The owners have put out benches and chairs so people can use the WiFi in comfort.

So much to do here, Hike the Bonito/Argentina Trail (Q's favorite for the river crossings), Hike Nogal Canyon around the mountain, Hike in town at Cedar Creek, Bonito Lake is closed until probably 2016 or later, but it is still beautiful to see, their is a horse stable back in the National Forest that does horseback guide rides. I haven't had a chance to do the horseback riding since Q would rather hike than stay at home.

Day trips to Cloudcroft, NM or even White Sands NM. Also Lincoln, NM see the courthouse jail where Billy the Kid escaped, visit Hubbard Museum (lots of Western and horse displays).
