Pitch your tent or park in the "sloped" pasture and enjoy the view of the Animas Valley. Just 8 miles north of Durango off of the million dollar highway. Across the highway from Honeyville and across the river from fun at the Bar D  Ranch or James Ranch Harvest Grille.  Durango Mountain Resort is just up the road.  Horses and cattle grazing in the pasture below and the apple trees and the honey bees are in full production.  Mission Ridge red cliffs with the mysterious silhouettes and glow at sunset.  At night you may hear the Animas River below or some animal sounds. Name the constellations among the amazing view of the stars!

The view is spectacular and Melinda was very responsive. Chris, the host, was helpful and attentive. My only hesitation in staying again is that I didn't realize we would be right on the frontage road off of 550 and the traffic was fairly nonstop although I wore ear plugs at night so I slept fine. The campsite is also right in the front yard of the house, adjacent to the front porch. The bathroom is a camp toilet in a tent. Had we known any one of these three things, we'd have chosen another place. If these things don't bother you, the people are friendly and you can't beat the view of the cliffs and farm. Really beautiful.

Beautiful view, friendly host—but the yard is entirely slanted. Not a level spot to put a tent.

Absolutely stunning - don’t hesitate. Every aspect was perfect and the host was always a phone call away if we needed anything. The horses were beautiful. Landscape was outstanding for watching the sun rise and set and the stars were out of this world. Great location as well. As safe as it gets.
