Camp Rio, formerly named Camp @ Cloudcroft is located in beautiful SE New Mexico! The park is surrounded by thousands of acres of the Lincoln National Forest. The forest is laced with small villages, picturesque roads, riding, hiking, golf, and walking trails. Small valleys, surrounding mountains, racing streams, wildlife, birds, mountain glens and outdoor activities are available to Camp Rio guests. The small towns around us are Mayhill, Cloudcroft, Weed, and Pinion. These towns have scheduled activities such as arts and craft fairs, car shows, bluegrass festivals, dog shows, and Lumberjack days. Additional day trips to Alamogordo, Capitan (Smokey the Bear), Carlsbad, Las Cruces, Lincoln (Billy the Kid), Ruidoso (skiing), Sunspot (National Solar Observatory, Truth or Consequences (Hot Springs) and White Sands National Monument! Guests enjoy our upgraded free wifi to have the best of both worlds, surrounded by beautiful nature, while still being able to connect with family/friends/work.

Camp Rio Bell Tent
Super clean, accommodating and great staff. Clear creek runs thru where you can fish for trout, or take a quick dip in. Kid friendly, shaded and laundry on site. Live music on Saturdays and a food truck in the evening.

would stay again!
Cool spot! Pretty conveniently located to attractions in the area. Campground bathrooms and showers were clean and private. Owner gave great recommendations. We were there for a very busy weekend and it was still relatively peaceful.

Camp Rio Bell Tent
Great experience!!
Absolutely love staying on this property! We stayed previously at the hard wall tent and had such a great time, we had to do it again. This time we chose the bell tent and it was just as great. Great setting and clean place. Hot shower and clean toilet facilities are just an added bonus.great hosts and very nice owners ! Highly recommend, and will do it again!!
