We stayed one month at this 50+ senior campground; 16 miles from the nearest town (Ruidoso) with shopping, groceries, restaurants and other amenities. We enjoyed the very quiet atmosphere as it was just the place we were looking for to rest for a while. It's probably not the place for those who are unable to entertain themselves, though there are opportunities for sightseeing day trips in the area. Extensive collection of DVDs in the clubhouse, with a picnic area outside where those staying at the park can socialize. The two end sites are the most spacious, and well worth the $50 upcharge on the monthly rate. The remaining sites reasonably spaced apart. A picnic table and grill are at each site. The hosts -- Denise and Roy -- are very friendly and helpful, and work all day everyday to maintain clean and manicured grounds. If unused to drinking well water, bring bottled water unless you're set up to filter the water from the tap. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive into Ruidoso for lunch at the Corner Bakery, visit Fort Stanton (don't miss the Merchant Marine Cemetery), visit the Hubbard Museum of the American West, drive up to the Inn of the Mountain Gods and walk around Mescalero Lake on the Apache Reservation ... other sightseeing opportunities as well.

What a gem! This is a very well maintained campground, with a friendly and helpful owner to check us in. The road was gravel. Our gravel pad was a very spacious, and level pull through, plenty of space for our towed, and we also had a picnic table. Big rig access might be a little tight for anything bigger than our forty footer, so best to unhook before you enter the gate. The campground is set on eight manicured acres, colorful rose bushes and shrubs are everywhere, as well as plenty of bird boxes and hummingbird feeders. Shade trees with benches are scattered around the site. Lots of grass to walk your pet on as well as doggie bags. Very quiet and tranquil. We had superb views of the surrounding hills and mountains. The rec. room was well stocked with books and dvd's; and the bathroom and laundry were spotless. WiFi was good but cell was spotty. It's about 13 miles into Ruidoso, so plenty of food shops, restaurants and sightseeing. The owners have worked very hard to make this a wonderful "Senior Community" campground, and pride of ownership shows. We would stay here again. We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is our second stay at this park. You can't find one any cleaner and well maintained. The park is small but the 15 sites are all pull thru with plenty of room to park a vehicle beside your RV. Each site has a picnic table and mailbox and most have some shade. The mountain views are a bonus. The Wi-Fi works well, however this time our AT&T phone service was spotty, which isn't unusual in the mountains. The owners take pride in their park and are friendly and accommodating to their guests. We will definitely stay here when in the area. Rate includes 50 amp hookup. We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were only able to stay a week here and wished we could have stayed longer. The owners are very friendly and gave us lots of tips on places to visit and recommendations on restaurants. The campground, rec room (which is full of books and DVDs) and laundry room are SPOTLESS!!! There has been extra care taken in planting of trees, rose bushes and the buildings are very colorful and quaint. There are many hummingbirds and a hummingbird feeder was provided to us so we could enjoy the birds from our site. Very quiet and relaxing - saw a herd of elk early one morning!!! Park internet was good, VZ phone and internet also worked well. We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with 15 sites. Owners were on hand, helpful and guided us to our site. Sites are extra large and all are pull-throughs. Wi-Fi worked great. This is a senior's park - quiet and extra clean. Nice area to walk dogs. Views are beautiful of the mountains. This is our second visit and would have stayed longer, but they were booked.

I cannot complain about the facilities, they were impeccably clean!! Only one washer and drier though, and had to use their soap, which was measured out in a shot glass. I was questioned as to my religion, which I thought was TOTALLY inappropriate!!!! It was a senior park which did not allow our friends to visit, which we understood, no problem there. But the person who registered us there almost tried to convince us to not stay there, which I was surprised by and I told that person so. I was so nervous that I would break a rule that I carried the rules sheet around with me. Loved the peace and quiet, but was told that guests were "heavily screened" to keep out the riff-raff, again understandable, but by whose definition of "riff-raff"? Does religion make a difference? We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The owner of the park was very friendly and attentive to make sure all of our needs were met. She took us on a tour and explained everything to us. We loved this park,. It has only 15 sites and is near a creek. Very quiet and clean in a country setting with some horses/mules next door. It doesn't have a lot of lights at night, so I was able to see the sky and all the stars perfectly. The laundry room only has one washer/dryer, but they were like new and the owner even had laundry soap on the counter in case we didn't have any soap. The library was huge with tons of dvd's and books. These owners seem to think of everything one would want in an RV park. We would highly recommend it and definitely come back. We would also recommend visiting the Cornerstone Bakery/Cafe. The food and treats were delicious. We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

50+ extremely well maintained park in a peaceful surrounding located off Hwy 70 between Glencoe and San Patricio. It's about 15 miles to Ruidoso Downs & Walmart. The owners take real pride in their park and are tops when it comes to hospitality. There are 15 very large pull-through sites (30' & 40'), two with park models. It's great for big rigs as access roads and sites are level and graveled, which makes parking easy. There is a large grassed area great for walking dogs. A creek at the back of the property has benches and is a great place to sit and relax or visit with other tenants. We really like this park and will definitely stay here again.

This an excellent, attractive, bird friendly, small RV Park adjacent to Highway 70 and 14 miles east of Ruidoso Downs. The friendly owners live on site and do an commendable job of maintaining the RV Park. They greet the occupants each day and tend to the needs of the RV park. There are 15 sites and two are occupied by park models. The remaining pull through sites are level, spacious and long enough for most big rigs. Most sites have a growing shade tree and each has a picnic table. The wide access lanes are gravel based like the sites and there are no obstructions. The utilities are up to date, in the right location, and operate without problems. The Wi-Fi is fast and operates free of problems. A large open space expanse is available for use by the occupants and a creek borders the back of the property. We really liked this RV park. We extended our stay from two days to a full week. Our site served as an excellent base camp while exploring the area. The rate reflected is an off-season weekly rate. We will likely return. We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice owners, escorted us to our site upon checking in. This is a small, economical, 50+ park and very peaceful. Adjacent to Highway 70, however, road noise was minimal as the park sits below the highway. Pastoral setting, creek (Ruidoso River) is a short walk from your site. Sites still a little close together for my taste: that's my only negative. All sites are pull through. Little shade. Very nice clubhouse with extensive book library (leave one, take one) and one of the best DVD libraries I've ever seen at an RV park. 15 minute drive to Wal-Mart and the Horsetrack in Ruidoso Downs, an easy 20 minute drive to downtown Ruidoso. Going the other way, Lincoln is about 15-20 minutes, too. Wi-Fi worked well. No Verizon (cell or internet). We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
