The vibe at Tent Camp among Anasazi Ruins
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Kelly Place is a great place to stay, self guided tour of the ruins on site and hikes from the property are only a part of the benefit of staying here as they have a shower and you get breakfast and it is quiet. The owners are knowledgeable of the area and will share information.
Kelly Place came to be when a couple discovered Anasazi artifacts on their property in the 1960s. This property has since been excavated and turned into a vacation destination, and I have never seen anything quite like it. I came with my dog and we had such a great time hikig around all of the trails that start right on the property, and we did not even get to see all of it! I highly recommend a sunset hike; desert sunsets are particularly gorgeous and they have panoramic views of the area.
Absolutely beautiful location - a little paradise valley that was glorious to camp in. Beautiful land, delicious breakfast, great amenities all around - there is only one bathroom available for all the campers, so there can be a wait. Other than that, perfect spot!
