Suggestions for campgrounds in Ruidoso, NM

I've never been and my husband has been a few times but in hotels/cabins. Any suggestions for a good campground?

Also, suggestions on some good times of the year to go? We're not skiers and we'd like to avoid the busiest times (i.e. Holidays) if possible!

I don't have any personal campground suggestions, but be sure to do the Billy the Kid National Scenic Byway while you are there.

Here is their list of Campgrounds/RV parks in that area - byway lodging

Here's the home page for the Scenic Byway - byway-index
The website has LOTS of info about the Ruidoso, Lincoln, and other places. And be sure to go to Lincoln and take the Billy the Kid tours, fascinating stuff!

Have a great time!

Look at Bottomless Lake State Park. Ruidoso has museums, casinos, and a horse race track. While in the area a must see is Carlsbad Caverns about 75miles from the lake. Plan a full day for the caverns and you'll want to see the bat flight in the evening. Summers can run 100+ and temps in the caverns are cool so light jacket or sweat shirt if your prone to getting cold.

Annual camping pass & camping fees are $4 for electric & $14 for full hook ups.
We get lots of snow birds here but there is a 14 day stay limit so you need to plan ahead. You can reserve some sites ahead of time and others are first come first served. New Mexico - State Parks Division for more info.
