Right in Capitan, this park is tiny. There are about 10 spaces. If it was full it would be tight. Great WI-FI signal. Owner is very nice. We only overnighted but would come here again. The whole town is in walking distance. No cable but several stations on antenna. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean and quiet. We were in space one which is nearest the highway and traffic noise was minimal. Management was excellent to work with, allowing us to select our own site. WI-FI was available and worked well. Very close to Lincoln, Fort Stanton, and Ruidoso Downs. Smokey Bear State Park is just across the street making it a very short walk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small all gravel park right in the center of Capitan. There are a few "permanent" residents. We would not have chosen this park had it not been late in the day. I rated it a 4 because it was over-priced for what you get. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is located in town directly next to Smokey Bear Historical Park and is close to Lincoln, Fort Stanton and Ruidoso. We're traveling in a 40' motorhome with car in tow. The entrance is a tight right turn from the east but we used part of the westbound lane and got in easily. The entire lot is gravel, so there's plenty of room to maneuver into sites. Most sites are full hookup with 50 amp. Water and electric worked well. I noticed a voltage drop under heavy load, but never less than 116 volts. There is one bath house for all. It was clean and the water was warm with good pressure. Verizon aircard worked well. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We definitely like this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only park in town. Next to Smokey Bear State Monument and Museum. Right in town near shops, grocery and several restaurants within walking distance. Had a very shady long back-in site with full hookups. Pull-thru sites available in center of park without shade. Convenient to Lincoln State Monument and Ft. Stanton. Friendly owners. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stumbled onto this park after looking for and finding another one in town that was dismal. We backtracked the three miles west and had our doubts when we pulled in. The sites here are located throughout an open meadow. Spaces are gravel but relatively level. As undeveloped as it appears, electrical, water and sewer are very reliable. And the Internet is great -- very strong even at the back end of the park. We chose a spot (yes, if they aren't busy you can choose) adjoining an open space that goes on forever. It is totally silent here at night and the owners are very friendly and relaxed. It is very low key this time of year but the owner says it fills up in high season. One note that is not in the park owner's control is the wind. It is windy here this time of year. No place we have seen has much shelter from the wind but it really howls through here. Other than that, we really like this spot and would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
