New owners are as service oriented as any I have ever encountered. Really nice and helpful people. Pretty park, large trees, riverside spaces available. Clean and organized with continuous improvements underway. Close to town. High on my list of best parks. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice location! Cabins are in excellent shape. Staff is very friendly. The RV parking was somewhat of an issue. We were shoehorned into place, which took a lot of work. The river side spots really aren't equipped for a large trailers. There are other spots that are more accommodating. All-in-all we had a great time and look forward to coming back. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

I wouldn't park anything over 27' long in this section. They have other spots that are a lot more spacious.

This camp had mostly workers. Our friends sewer stopped up and the 50 amp did not work when first hooked up. He had to use an adjoining box. Water was standing in spots with mud. No fire rings or other amenities other than the picnic table. The river that ran through was a creek not that good for fishing. The one staffer was friendly. Tree limbs were cut after we arrived because they dragged on my motorhome as we entered. Would not recommend.Will not be back. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's tucked away of the main drags of town but handy to every thing shopping, Casinos, restaurants, and the race track, the sites are a little tight but there is nice shade and sound of the river covers most any traffic noise, could use some up keep some areas the gravel is becoming grassed over. the hosts and owner are very friendly , clean and reasonably priced laundry , covered patio and grill is in common area It is a nice small , quiet park that I spent the winter in and would do so again.

No restrooms or showers. Does have a small laundry facility. About 1/2 of the sites have 50 amp. Temporary camp host very helpful in getting into tight spot and setup in the rain. As other noted - next to a very busy road. Rate seems a bit high for only a tight parking spot with a picnic table very close to next rig. It is really just a place to park the rig while out visiting the area. Cable TV fair, too many trees for satellite dish. Wi-Fi very good. Verizon MiFi signal strong. AT&T 4G seems bogged down throughout Ruidoso area - slow and times out often. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is very small, and it is directly next to a very busy road that has lots of traffic. The owner was helpful in getting us pulled into our space. But that is the extent of the customer service here. Electricity went off several times, we had been told we had a 50 amp space, but it wasn't! Not pet friendly, the rules say they do not have pet walks within the park! Would not recommend this park except if you just need a quick stop on the way to your destination. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The website view of this park is very misleading. This park is very small and does not accommodate big rigs well at all. We sat outside our front door and could clearly see our neighbor inside their rigs and speak to them through the window. There is NO place to walk your dog except across a very busy street in a children's ball field. We had some issues with our rig, called repair and notified the manager we may be delayed in departing later than expected, she was not happy. We ultimately made the decision to leave early (without repairs) to accommodate the park. We were advised absolutely no refunds! We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My In-laws found this place and it's tucked in right next to a creek. We had the spot directly across from my In-laws and it was a nice big one. We could walk the dogs either next to the creek or take them across the street to go up the creek. The host and the owners were always nice, friendly, and alot of fun to speak with. Pretty down home place to enjoy the horse racing, casinos or just hanging out. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is small, very clean and well maintained. When we arrived a very friendly guy greeted us and helped us get backed into our site. There is a busy road next to the park, and a baseball / football stadium nearby: so you can hear the loudspeakers occasionally. Over Labor Day weekend, the park owners held a buffet and had karoke. Sites are very close together and there is a river that runs through the campground. We would consider staying here again. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here during the motorcycle rally. The park is well managed by a gentleman who is very helpful in all ways. The owner is a great host and makes sure you enjoy your time in Ruidoso. The park is clean and well cared for, some spaces right on the river. We stayed here for a week and will be there next year too! Ruidoso makes bikers very welcome.

We were greeted with help immediately upon pulling in and friendly folks throughout our visit. Our River side spot was dreamy and our host was a source of entertaining and informative conversation. Has easy access and away from the city commotion. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park. RV's are pretty close together, especially the ones that back up to the river. There are some long term residents so there aren't many sites available by the river. I think we would try another park in the future. We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Extremely friendly staff and well kept site. Setup we had was along river with plenty of seating area. No real facilities to speak of (shower/bathroom) but that was not an issue with us. Would definitely look to stay with them again We camped at Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.
