Overall, a nice park that is very pretty itself in addition to the beauty of these Colorado mountains. Depends on what you're looking for if you'll want to stay here. It's nice and cool mornings in Creede in September so that's what we were after. Maybe 1/2 of the park is dedicated to "purchase" spaces and the other 1/2 is for temporary stays.
Mountain trail RZRing is popular so almost every one of the owners has a four wheeler they take out regularly as there are numerous trails in the area.
We stayed in the "resort" side where we had a concrete patio, level site, good water, nicely landscaped. We had absolutely no wifi, no tv stations available, and no cable offered. Felt like upscale camping due to the site itself.
Our dogs had lots of trouble getting to somewher they could do their business as the park prohibits dogs on anything grassy or green, 2 as they say. The driveways are not asphalt and consist of large and small river stones which apparantly hurt our dogs' paws so they were reluctant to walk around much (very unusual for them). For dog owners, this to us was a big negative and we won't be back. If you're not a pet owner, no problem except that vehicle travel over their driveways is pretty noisy.
The entrance has a flagpole which has a permanent US flag flying. When we arrived the flag had no light on it at night, breaking respectful protocol, and I mentioned to those in the office that the flag should be taken down each night or a light needed to be on the flag. Good for them 3 days later a light was shining on the flag at night. It appeared to be an all weather flag as well, which is proper. We camped at Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Just like most KOAs, overpriced and average. It does have asphalt roads and spaces though, with lots of trees for shade during the hot times. Wifi is useless so prepare to use your phone as a hotspot. Cable is ok with some standard channels. Very centrally located close to downtown. Noise level is a bit high with a very busy side street used by lots of buses and other vehicles. Very nice astroturf dog exercise area where Fido can go off leash. I'd probably stay here again due to the location but come on, folks, at $55/night would it be too much to ask to provide working wifi? We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

Went in for several nights so we could drive to the Ft. Worth museums daily - about 30 miles but all interstate. The site was concrete paved with a small extension for the patio. Mostly level. Had to sweep the patio as they don't do this in between campers. Wifi was better/faster than most. Our site had some shade which was really nice in the hot weather. There is a small off leash fenced area for dogs. Most permanent site folks (and there were a lot of them) were neat and didn't have lots of things piled ourside, but there were a few that had a huge amount of things to the point of being junky. C'mon folks. People were friendly. Dog walkers be careful because cars can come from either direction and as quiet as cars are these days, they will sneak up on you without giving notice. A couple were right beside of us before I knew it. Overall a good park. Did not use the pool, bath or laundry facilities which all looked nice and well maintained. We camped at Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
Good rails to trails path from Weatherford to Mineral Wells, and Ft. Worth has the Trinity trail which is very nice. Go to the museums in Ft. Worth.

All in all a satisfactory park and better than most around here. I like the office staff who are extremely helpful and friendly. Check in is efficient and they lead you to your spot which I questioned at first until discovering every other space is reversed and it would be easy to go in the from the wrong direction. Sites are pretty level but jacks or levelers are necessary. Roads are asphalt; spaces are dirt/rock with some grass on patio sides. Picnic table at each site. Negatives: Wifi is iffy and slow but they say they are going to upgrade it (again). You may need to use your cell data. Sites are very narrow and in my case either my neighbor or I could put an awning out but not both of us at the same time since our awning sides faced each other. The best grass spaces with good grass and away from all the rigs disallows dogs-a bit pet unfriendly in my mind. We camped at Circle B RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is in Ruidoso Downs, not Ruidoso. Very convenient to the horse race track, 3 miles from Walmart, east side of Ruidoso. You need a car or some kind of transportation to enjoy the area and there is lots to do and see.
