Date of Stay: July, 2011
I feel I most respond to the negative remarks in the July 2011 post. It appears we were at this wonderful RV Park at the same time. We have been visiting Bonito Hollow for over seven years and have never had a negative stay. We have enjoyed the times spent with the previous owners, new owners and different work campers throughout those years. We try to come out to Bonito Hollow at least three times a year. I just want to clear up some of the remarks addressed by the July 2011 post. The water issue was addressed as quickly as possible and free bottled water was provided to all campers. It was one of those unfortunate and unexpected things that happen. Our family took the time to talk to the large group of tent campers, who were from a church group from El Paso, Texas and Las Cruces, New Mexico. This group had organized activities for all the kids during their stay. This fun caused kids to romp around the park and enjoy the horseshoe pits, volleyball court, hiking trails and their own organized games. I'm sorry but I see nothing wrong with kids romping and enjoying the outdoors. We had no problem running our AC, coffeemaker, TV, kids game system, patio lights, and satellite radio, etc. Campers enjoyed the cool evenings cooking out and some enjoyed listening to music be it whatever language. Our group enjoyed playing volleyball, horse shoes and hiking trails throughout the week and the wonderful company of owners and all their staff. They have continued to improve this park and we are looking forward to visiting again in August. If you want to enjoy a wonderful camping stay there is no place like Bonito Hollow. Please take time to read all the wonderful reviews and remember this is a family oriented RV Park, with kids romping, families laughing and having a wonderful time.

We live in El Paso, Texas and have been regulars to Bonito Hollow Campground for approximately seven years visiting three to four times a year. We had heard that it had changed ownership and we are pleased to announce that the new owners and staff are just as wonderful as the past staff. We visited in June and July of this year. Our July trip also included our family which included four trailers, a small family reunion for a week. One of the owners was wonderful and made us feel like family. His staff and family are good people and after hearing their plans and projects for this park it will definitely be one of the best family oriented campgrounds in Ruidoso. Park host have wonderful events set up during the weekends for kids and adults (boat races on the stream for kids with boats made of recycled materials, bon fires, washer tournaments and even karaoke). It is a wonderful place for kids to explore and be kids and for adults to be kids again. We took full advantage of the volleyball area, horseshoe pit and fishing in the stream. We enjoyed all the wildlife in this area (Deer, Hummingbirds, blue jays and even Tango). Nights around a camp fire is definitely a must, to include snores and campfire games. This campground is only a couple of miles from Bonito Lake and about twenty minutes from the main town of Ruidoso. Cafe Rio a must for good pizza and salads. This campground has pull thru spots and also more secluded spots against the forest area some are steep and four wheel drive will sure help especially if it raining. Wonderful tent sites near the river and forest area, clean restrooms/showers and washer and dryers are also available to all campers. Bonito Hollow is the definitely the best family campground.

We live in El Paso and have stayed at Elk's Run the last two Spring Break. This park is well kept and has large pull through sites. The road to RV site is paved and has some tight turns that make it difficult for long trailers. Restrooms are clean and have washer/dryer available.
