Get ready for an adventure into the Ruidoso forest like you never expected with your stay at the Riverside RV Park. With a breathtaking mountain backdrop and fresh air, you'll find yourself hiking and biking the trails like you've never hiked before. And while you're out there, keep your eyes open for deer, fox and a plethora of different bird species filling the tree tops with flashes of blues and greens. There's also a quiet stream to satisfy your fishing needs and plenty of open spaces for exploring and picnicking.

We are located in the heart of Ruidoso.  Close to Billy the Kid Race Track and Casino.  Inn of the Mountain Gods Casino.  Shopping in Downtown Ruidoso.  Great places to eat and drink.  Go to Ski Apache ride the Gondola or go to several lakes located nearby for fishing or fish right here in Riverside RV Park on the Rio Ruidoso.

Overall Rating: 4.8

10+STARS. When we pulled in we were a little skeptical. Small sites and congested. After being there one day we loved it. Access to the river. Walk the dogs leash free. Beautiful sitting area in the middle of the park. While we were there we had an accident with our truck. The hospitality we received from everyone was above and beyond!!!! They have activities, dinners , social gatherings! Truck is now fixed but we plan to stay a few extra days. ❤️This Place! Not real big rig friendly but they are very helpful and will get you in!!!! Thanks Riverside for everything!!!!

We had friends in Texas that recommended this RV park and we were not disappointed. We camped along the river and found it peaceful and inviting. The hosts went over and above to bring campers together in the evenings with great food and fun! My only regret is that it did not include a bathhouse with showers. We have a small camper and would have loved a “real” shower after a long day hiking. The RV park is close to hiking trails as well as close to town. I am happy we visited and would definitely recommend it to friends!🤗

We had a nice site on the river at this small campground. On our second day a flash flood came through, flooding our site as well as the others along the river. Everyone was extremely helpful in getting us to higher ground, moving our trailer and all of the items we had on the ground. They cleaned up the sites and had guests staying in them within 2 days, which I feel was ill advised. I do hope that they informed the new guests about the possibility of flash floods, but have no way of knowing if they did so. We left several days early to return home to clean up.


Nice place. Employees very friendly. Spaces a little too close together. While we were there they had electrical and water problems. After the flood, not their fault, they did everything they could to help dig us out. The place has a very lively party atmosphere, hence the 21 and older rule. I would stay there again.

A wonderful RV Park. The river is stunning. We saw 4 huge male elk early in the mornings at the river. In the evenings we saw more elk and mule deer. The people are amazingly kind, and generous. It is a warm community - we can't wait to go back.

Went to the Riverside RV Park for Christmas week and this place is very cozy, quiet, and the people I get to interact were nice people. Small place but has everything you might need for the time you spend there, full hook ups very centric to the Ruidoso area and downtown. Definitely will stay again in the future.

We had the most wonderful time! The sites where very wide and level. We've stayed in many RV parks, but have never been helped to get set up. We were welcome at the front office then helped to get set up. There are wild mule deer every night and every day. Each site has a very nice wooded swing that over looks the river. We are already looking at our calendar to see when we can head back.
