Set up camp at 9000 feet on 14 acres of beautiful private land in the wooded hills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range. The property offers beautiful views of the San Luis Valley to the west, as well as the snow capped peaks of Blanca Peak and Mt. Lindsey to the north. During the day, enjoy the nature around you with views of the San Luis Valley and the Sangre de Cristo Range. At night, see all of the stars you can imagine. Mt. Blanca is the 4th highest peak in the Rocky Mountains and is a fourteener coming in at 14,351 feet. The property is about 45 minutes (39 miles) from Great Sand Dunes National Park, one of the most intriguing national parks in the United States. It is also about 15 minutes (10 miles) south of Fort Garland, Colorado which is the closest town, sandwiched in between this property and the mountain range to the north. Fort Garland has a grocery store, a couple of restaurants, and gas stations.
It does frequently get very cold at night time due to the elevation, even into the summer, where temps usually hover around 50 degrees as the low in June through August. Please make sure you pack warm camping gear. When you come on-site, there is a steep dirt road that takes you to the property, however, the views from the top are stunning. My site has hosted campers that have stayed with a 22-foot trailer, so if traveling with anything larger or in a large RV, your space might be somewhat limited, although probably possible. The limitation is the road and turnaround space at the end of the cul-de-sac. In the winter, the property does have a few feet of snow since it resides right above 9000 feet, so book during these times at your own risk.
I do not offer any additional amenities on site so you will be camping out in the wilderness! This property is in a gorgeous area that offers privacy with beautiful views. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Place was awesome. Great view and very secluded. There was some trash around the site. Not an overwhelming amount but it could be cleaner. Overall it was a nice spot and I would recommend it.
The host was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions promptly. It was a very secluded and private site, which was a nice getaway from the other tourists. Overall a very great camping spot!
First, Jacob is a wonderful host. Extremely prompt with responses to my questions before and after booking. The site is truly stunning, quiet and secluded. Great for off-grid camping. We took a 22-ft. travel trailer and I wouldn't try to put anything larger at the site. There was a county fire ban, so we were disappointed we couldn't have campfires, but happy to abide by local ordinances! I will say this - the cul-de-sac is rather sloped. If you have one or two tents you might find a semi-level spot. But the site could be improved if it is possible to make the area more level. The surrounding land that is Jacob's is hilly and steep, so our friends in a tent opted to pitch next to fire pit. The trash mentioned in another recent review may actually be on the neighboring tract of land - it's difficult to tell. But, we enjoyed stunning sunsets and a very enjoyable stay.
Great cooler weather car camping.
So this is a site in Southern Colorado, We went in the summer, and it was hot, dry, and not a place to camp. My bad. Being from Texas and seeing the weather forecast and at that elevation I thought it would work. We abandoned the site 15 minutes after arriving. That being said, it’s beautiful property and amazing views. There’s no shade to speak of and there is no place to set up a tent off the gravel/dirt road shown in the photos. Even though its in a rural development of ranches, the roads are all washboard dirt and gravel, and very rough to drive on. Jacob owns most of the land off of that Cul-de-sac where the fire ring is in the photos so if you set up camp there you are still very removed from people. This would be a great place To camp in cooler months, especially if you have a roof-top tent or small camper/ RV. I’d just stay clear in the summer months.
