CAMP ON 70 ACRES OF PRIVATE MOUNTAIN BIKE HEAVEN! Gecko Gulch is a single, private campsite near the popular North Fruita Desert 18 Road mountain bike area and the famous Kokopelli Trail. And if that’s not enough, after a day of shredding single track, you can return to your campsite and have 70 acres of desert hills all to yourself to continue the ride!

When you’ve had enough of the bike, you can relax in your 8’x12’ cabin with two comfy chairs and room to hang a hammock or stretch out two of your sleeping bags if you don’t want to pitch a tent. A covered porch is the perfect place to watch the sunset and enjoy a well-earned beer. There’s a picnic table with a shade tarp. The open-air shower stall lets you hang a solar bag to rinse off the dust while you admire an unending desert view. Then start a campfire and roast some marshmallows while you wait for the stars to come out.

Gecko Gulch’s 70 acres is surrounded by public BLM land on two sides so the desert really is your playground. This is a dry campsite with no electricity or water, but there is a portable toilet and trash can. There’s enough flat area to set up a couple of tents. A small amount of firewood is provided.  Due to the narrowness of the BLM access road, Gecko Gulch is not suitable for large RVs--it's best suited for tent camping or sleeping bags inside the cabin. The cabin has no heat/air conditioning, but two screened windows open to catch a breeze and mosquito netting is on the door.

If you’re tired of camping in a crowded, noisy campground with neighbors on all sides, if you want privacy and incredible views, then Gecko Gulch is waiting!

Patti was amazing, everything was just as promised. She even had water and a snack for us when we arrived! We love the desert and know the weather can be unpredictable. We really wanted to have a back up place besides our tent in case of wind. We were so glad we did!! The space is very sturdy, comfortable and can withstand the crazy weather the desert can bring. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much Patti
