Great little spot! First time at this location. Several RV spots with water/electric and a few with full hookups. Each spot comes with picnic table and fire pit. Dump site available behind bath house. Cute little store/office with some camping and and RV necessities. Camp hosts were friendly and made several rounds to make sure everything was good. Bathrooms were clean, showers could be a little bigger but otherwise nice facility. Laundry room also available. Will definitely be back! We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Best part of this campground was the staff. They were super friendly and helpful. They checked in on us several times to ask if we needed anything. Most of the sites were level and relatively easy to access. The site spacing was a little close in our area but certainly workable. Our site backed up to the creek which was nice. The bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. Wifi was good as long as you were close to the bathroom building. No AT&T cellular coverage and Verizon was very spotty. Overall we had a good experience and would consider staying here again. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Saw lots of folks fishing in the Rio Bonito which runs through the campground, but didn't see anyone catching fish. For hiking I recommend the Big Bonito and Argentina trails at the end of FR 107 past the horse stables. This area was not as affected by the fire several years ago.

Very nice park nestled in the woods and hills near Ruidoso. A very picturesque stream runs along the edge of the property. The folks managing the park were friendly and helpful. There is a very small store onsite for essentials, however, major shopping and grocery stores are within 15 minutes of the park. We arrived near dark and were still led to our site. the sites are plenty large enough for big rigs. There are campsites intermixed with the RV sites. Many hiking trails are nearby that were varied and interesting. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Love this family owned campground. It's always clean and the owners and park hosts are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Sites are spacious gravel, ranging from some shade to mostly shady exposure, featuring a fire ring and picnic table.

Although our site did not have sewer, they do have some FHU sites and there is also a dump station available. We stay here everytime we visit Ruidoso. Highly recommend. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful setting, lovely views, gravel sites, plenty of trees, short walk to the stream loaded with trout. No playground but fun play area the kiddos liked. Quiet during the week, weekend was very noisy, crowded and quiet hours ignored (until 12:30 AM). Light road noise at night. Mostly friendly staff, willing to help. Asked about military discount (retired USMC) when checking in and was told "you have to be active duty, out there fighting". Some construction going on building cabins. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Hall of Fame Burgers in Ruidoso, the model train store downstairs was a big hit with kiddos. Trout stream; fish with salmon eggs and a small hook. Pretty drive to Bonito Lake but everything is closed out there due to fire.

This is a small family owned campground setting beside Rio Bonito. A fire 4 years ago destroyed part of the campground and the surrounding hillsides are covered with dead trees. Big Rig accessibility is OK however, some of the pull through sites on the hill are bit of challenge. We had site #52. The site was gravel with adequate width however, like most of the sites, leveling is difficult for larger rigs. We had one tire off the ground and still needed another 3 inches to be level but we made it work. Wifi is great if you are parked near and to the front of the shower house. Unfortunately we were parked behind the shower house and got no usable signal. Cell service is non existent and a trip to the office is required to make a phone call. Owners and staff are very friendly. Several of the tent sites were on bare dirt and would be a muddy mess in the rain. If returning to the area, we would look to stay somewhere else.

Lots of day trip things to see and do in this area. White Sands, Valley of Fire, and the Three Rivers Petroglyph sites are worth seeing. Big Daddy's in Cloudcroft has some good food. Four Winds Cafe in Carrizozo has excellent Fried Chili Strips.

This park is located in a beautiful setting along the Bonito river. The sites and roads are gravel, most of the FHU/pull through sites require blocks + jacks for leveling, utilities are located at the front on some sites and many face each other, some so close that only one may put awnings out. W/E sites seem a better bet but are relatively short. Restrooms are clean but basically unfinished, showers have a very small changing area with no clothes hook or seat. Laundry room is a dark utility area between restrooms with only one washer and dryer (one oos) and very dirty. We managed to get satellite but cell service (Verizon) poor and their wifi in and out, minimal at best. The campground area is clean and well maintained and quite pleasant. A few dogs (some from the staff) wandering around off leash which made walking our dogs difficult at times. Unfortunately this seems to be one of the nicer campgrounds in the area, though did not visit any within the Ruidoso city area. If you decide to stay here strongly recommend you drive through and select a suitable campsite first. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a active place. Lots of people and tent camping. No store really, no cell service unless you have Verizon or ATT. I have T-Mobile which is not useful in the Ruidoso area at all. The Wi-Fi was very spotty in my location but better in others. My direct TV worked but the person next to me had trees in the way. Don't be afraid of the bridge. I took a 30,000 lb RV with a 6,000 lb tow across it. It's narrow but only seems scary. We enjoyed the stay because of so much space between each RV We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very beautiful setting, clean campsites, so relaxing! The Owners and Hosts extremely helpful. We go each year with 3 to 6 families for our special weekend and have a blast. My Husband and I just spent 3 1/2 days there this past weekend by ourselves and it was so very relaxing. We are already planning our next camping trip! On Holidays they have special things to do with the kids. If you're in the area you should stay here-it's worth it! We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were really pleased with the looks and condition of the park. The sites have plenty of shade and are easy to enter. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We checked around several other parks in Ruidoso and could not find a better value. The park is recovering from a fire about 1 year ago and the owners are doing a very good job in rebuilding. You could not tell there was a fire. We would definitely return to the park. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our first RV adventure ever was a stay in the Bonito Hollow RV Park. We had a great time and will return. We had a stream-side space with shade and plenty of room. This is a large spread out campground with friendly people, lots of shade and a big park-like space for walking the dogs. Very nice staff, they helped us back in and delivered some firewood. WI-FI was spotty, but with the beautiful location we didn't miss it. There is no local TV reception or cable, but there is a nice trail along the creek so who cares!

Bonito Hollow is a great place. It is a campground and not just a parking lot for RV's. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and always available. We have been going to this same campground every summer for the past 5 years. The campground now has a brand new bath house with nice showers and restrooms. The new pavilion was going up while we were there and should be complete now. We heard about a lot more improvements that will be occurring this summer. There is a big playground area for the kids with a volleyball pit and other games. We always take bicycles for our kids and they love riding down to the river or to the playground or just around the "block". They always make friends and we love that aspect of camping at a campground like Bonito Hollow. We set out a hummingbird feeder and enjoyed watching our pet hummingbird guarding "his" feeder and trying to run other hummingbirds off when they tried to drink "his" nectar. We will definitely be back and I'd recommend this campground for families that have anything from a tent to a big motor home. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Drove up from El Paso, Texas and visited for four days/three nights with another couple and all of our dogs (four total). We made reservations for two sites which the staff worked hard to place us side by side. Though the park is still recovering from a devastating fire last year, the owners make this park a great choice. The staff is working hard daily to recover and is gaining ground on getting back to 'full force'. Everyone associated with the park went out of their way to accommodate us and make sure we were happy with our sites. Their presence around the sites kept a full house in order and at peace. The newly renovated bathhouse, which includes washer/dryer is first class. Construction continues on the cabins which were lost in the fire and it'll be great to see the projects completed. We are loyal fans of this site and will continue to frequent the site. Stream is almost at full flow and the developed walkway is a nice area to let the dogs play. Only complain of this park is the abundance of dirt and dry grass areas, however, that is attributed to Mother Nature not providing any rain. Thank you to the wonderful staff at BH for making us feel welcomed as you always have in the past. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Park staff seemed to be overwhelmed by the holiday campers. There was no communication to campers on activities that were planned at campground. Sites have been redone and are now extremely close together. Our group of 7 RV's were not situated together although we reserved before the RV's that were next to our site and we asked to be together. Very disappointed in overall experience. We will not be going back. We camped at Bonito Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
