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. The stars are abundant, and skies nice and dark, so watch long enough to catch a glimpse of a falling star! Adjoining state land for acres and acres to hike, and explore. We are 420, BIPOC and LGTBQ + friendly, aiming to provide a safe environment for all. We're happy to be hosts, welcoming folks who want a safe and private place to stay. Goods, services and other options available. Located just a short distance from Royal Gorge and only 10 miles outside of Florence, the antique city, don't forget to stroll through the downtown area to shop til you drop. We can provide transportation for shopping or recreational activities. Here for hunter's, (area69), angler's, (Arkansas River), horsemen and women, just down Hwy 67 from the Equestrian Center, so we're certainly located for it all! Contactless arrival/stay, hosts are available, we're all about giving you plenty of room! Views of the ranch, horses, with small gardens, (seasonal). Open your slide outs, there's plenty of room for all your gear too! You can see gardens, beautiful desert and mountain scenery, wildlife and more walking or hiking some small trails on property and so much more off to explore, like Newlins Creek! Pets are welcome, but must remain attended, or confined, safely, as we have horses and others about. Traveling with livestock? We can accommodate! Just bring feed and portable panels. Relaxing setting, for all day enjoyment. ATV use allowed on tracks on property, and 420 smoking friendly (no children allowed, during).

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.

beautiful spot. The access road was a bit challenging for motorcycles, but that just made it interesting. The host was very accommodating.
