Simply put, this park is shabby and neglected. All sites are back ins. It's a rectangular parking lot with different kinds of gravel or dirt. There are two 50 amp sites in the central area; both were occupied. The other four 50 amp sites were at the end. Of these, one turned out to be 30 amp and another had a "pedestal" three inches off the ground, which made it unusable. The remaining available spot did have a slightly higher pedestal we could plug into, but had no circuit breaker, and I couldn't use my surge protector (no room to plug in). Clearly, these pedestals were not complying with code. Water and sewer worked, although I could see the water level in the sewer pipe just 8 inches below the top. I knocked on wood when I dumped, but it worked. Wifi was good. There is no security; you are next to the main road with no fencing. As others said, there are trains going by across the road frequently, but ear plugs took care of the problem. If you are 30 amp, there are more sites to pick from. This was the first RV park we've stayed in for a long time where I was unsure about whether the hookups would fail or cause damage.

The problem with this park is not the facilities, although we did not check out the bathrooms. Sites are level with a tree and 2 tables for the back-to-front RVs on their patio sides. The hook ups worked fine and were well placed. Wifi was excellent. The problem with this park is that it is 90% long term residents, and that part of the park is at near capacity. It appears they have 6-8 spaces near the office for transients. It feels like you are living in a bad neighborhood. Our second night a smelly, decrepit trailer pulled in next to us (it had plywood covering broken windows). The owner partied outside with his friends at the adjacent space until 11:30 pm, despite the 10:00 pm quiet rule. We were ready to get out of there after two nights.

This is a large, well maintained RV park about 4 miles east of Ruidoso. The pull through sites were level, but somewhat narrow in the 30 amp section. Although there are trees throughout the park, our site had none. The TV was a little fuzzy, but the Wi-Fi was good. This park is less crowded than others in Ruidoso, which is a very good thing in the summer, when Ruidoso is packed with visitors. If you're into horse racing and casinos, Ruidoso Downs and the Billy the Kid Casino are only a couple of miles up the road.

I hesitated to write this review because I feel like I should keep this RV park a secret for us locals. The residents are almost all seniors from Texas or nearby Artesia, NM, who spend the warmer months here (the park closes in the colder months). The park is clean and very well run, in a beautiful setting, has huge sites by most RV park standards, and has no long-term residents. Wi-Fi was good, but if you want TV, bring a dish. There are only two bathrooms (1 toilet each) and two showers. Mayhill is way off the beaten path but the beauty of this park and the $25/night cost will bring us back.

This is the only game in town. It is small, with gravel roads and sites. We had a pick of pull-through sites that were level and had shade trees. There are no patios, just old tables with peeling paint. Wi-Fi was weak. Although it's next to the highway, it was quiet with a view of the Abajo Mountains. One of the better places to eat (K & A Chuckwagon) is only a couple of blocks up the highway. It took 3 days for someone to return my call to make a reservation. All in all, this was an OK place to spend a couple of nights.

We used to live in Cedar Crest. We were hoping for a site with pinyon and juniper trees. What we got was a small, unlevel patch of dirt and gravel with no patio, no table, no trees, no nothing. Although there appeared to be a lot of empty spaces, they said they had none with sewer. The place appears run down with a full time staff of 1 and lots of long-timers in old RVs in the center. Some sites had hose bibs on the ends of hoses, laying on the ground not far from the sewage connection. We had no Wi-Fi the first day and next morning; they blamed it on the ISP. We booked 2 nights but only stayed 1.

$40 is the weekday rate; it's $43 on weekends. If you want a very shady park in town, this is the one. It was very hot, but the canopy of shade trees kept us cool. We had a problem with the electric hookup but they had that fixed in 30 minutes. The park was 90% full and was very crowded, with lots of vehicles parked in the (thankfully) wide streets. All sites had good, level concrete pads and tables. Next time we'll go when it's not so hot and stay in one of the parks south of town with tremendous views.

The park is very small. The sites are small, cramped, and not level. Sewer location is awkward. There are primitive tables and sparse grass. Sites and roads are gravel and dirt. The restroom is small and so are the showers. There are many obvious long timers in run down RVs. Wi-Fi did not work with android tablet and laptop PC. The good: this park is on the south end of the historic main street of Leadville and close to several great places to eat. Wi-Fi on the iPad was very fast. If it weren't for the location I would give this park one star. If the location is important to you, I would give it five stars.

The $41 rate was with the Sam's Club discount for a pull through site with patio. This park met our needs for a one night stay. The sites were fairly large and the hookups located together except for the sewage. It was at the rear where our 15 foot hose would barely reach. This is high desert, so don't expect trees, but the desert flowers were well watered and blooming. The Wi-Fi was slow; OK for e-mail and some browsing, but not for video streaming. All in all, it was a pleasant place to stay with friendly staff. Watch out for the speed bumps, they are severe.

This is my first RV Parks review. We had a back-in for a 30-ft Class A. The hookups were in the right places. Our neighbors were close, but there was plenty of room. Wi-Fi was OK. There is a great hiking area on the east side on the slickrock. Other than Wahweap, there weren't other options with hookups. We were satisfied.
