We're fairly new to the RV thing. We have a smallish hybrid travel trailer and we're planning what I would consider as our first real "roadtrip" (longer than a couple of hours) from San Antonio to Ruidoso, NM. We plan to stop and check out Carlsbad, Gudalupe Mountains, etc. on the way, and we'll be gone about a week or so.
My wife and I have two young daughters (7 & 9), and we're looking for suggestions about things to do & see. We're also looking for good places to camp in or near Ruidoso. We'd like a campground that at least has electricity and dump station, with clean restrooms & showers. Otherwise, we prefer a park that is more spread out with larger campsites and lots of trees (more like camping - less like a parking lot). Ideally, we'd like something near water with places to hike and bike with the kids.
Ruidoso appears to have a lot of things to do in the summer and the weather there seems pretty mild for mid-July. Please let me know if I'm mistaken.
Thank you in advance!
