Private spacious, beautiful, ranch site on our highest plateau, affording you the unadulterated view of Pikes Peak in the day and beautiful city skyline at night.

Private spacious, beautiful, ranch site on our highest plateau, affording you the unadulterated view of Pikes Peak in the day and beautiful city skyline at night.

We can provide transportation for shopping or recreational activities.

Beautiful location. I stayed in Site 2 which had amazing views. It was closer to Site 3 than I would have liked. The first night was great when there was no one at the other site but someone came the second day and ran their generator a lot which was very loud at my site. Lots of ground cacti and horse manure around which may be an issue for small kids and curious dogs. But the views were amazing and I would go back.

We agree, so we're thinking of relocating it a bit more northwest of the site. Thank you and so glad you enjoyed it!

Had a beautiful night of camping upon a flat plateau. Beautiful views. Directions were not hard to follow. Of note, you will be going through the gate with a hanging wagon wheel. Had to climb up on top of the toy hauler to hold the wheel up as we drove through. Would be very helpful if the website would mention this and let everyone know at what height the wagon wheel hangs.

You are so right! We will measure it for future, as well have been talking about relocating the wheel. Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you again.
