Construction Begins on Grindstone Campground

The Village of Ruidoso Parks and Recreation Department has just completed the design of a campground at Grindstone Lake.  The project work has been advertised, and the Parks Director will be requesting the approval of a contract for construction services to build a campground at Grindstone Lake.

The project is scheduled to begin soon and will be completed in 150 days as weather permits. The expected opening date is early June 2019. The campground project will include 22 tent campsites and 6 sites for RVs up to 15’ in length.  The new campground area will also include picnic tables, showers, restrooms, and parking. Site rentals will utilize a self-pay station on the campsite. Campground rules and rentals will be monitored by Parks and Recreation staff along with local law enforcement.

Prior to the campground construction, the Village of Ruidoso Street Department will be building an access road to the campground. The purpose of the new access road is to bypass the current entrance on Sunrise Court in order to eliminate potential traffic issues on the neighboring streets.

“We are very excited to see this project underway,” said Rodney Griego, Parks Director for the Village of Ruidoso. “Having campsites at Grindstone Lake will add another dimension to this already amazing recreational area.”
