Park your RV here in the high planes desert 🌵

Soak in the peace and quiet,, let the mind free from social constraints, and find that zen that we all know and love about the outdoors.

With near to nonexistent light pollution, you will find stars galore on a clear night,

And safe to say that the sun rises and sunsets are incomprehensible until experienced first hand.

Let's just say we've seen sun vortexs.

With Antelope, Elk, burrowing owls, hawks, and little ground dwelling birds... nature love is plentiful

    San Luis Star Gazer Retreat was a beautiful 360 view plot of land in the middle of the San Luis valley! Although there were no amenities the separation from the world was beautiful. I think maybe one car drove by our entire stay. 2 wheel drive cars may have a tough time getting over the bank on the road to the campsite. When we arrived there was no cleared area to pitch a tent. A perfect spot for any 4 wheel drive car campers.

    View of the campsite with Blanca in the distance. Campsite was bare bones but plenty of space top set up a tent and park your car or RV. Views of Mount Blanca were stunning. Beautiful open skies. Not much going on here expect your campsite. No people no problems.

    Thanks for camping Erik! Glad you had a nice time connecting with the outdoors. I appreciate your advice, going to take action on this by forming a more clear driveway/entrance with a totem for easy arrival.

    It was beautiful and peaceful . Me and my dog enjoyed our time and the stars are so beautiful at night. I would watch the weather though for storms because you are in an open area. Great place , loved it !

    A remote, bare bones site that offers great views of the stars at night. Come prepared with everything that will make you comfortable, as there is literally nothing more than a fire pit (check on local fire bans before you light one!) on site. A great location for a no-frills, SILENT getaway.

    Jamie was easy to communicate with and the directions were spot-on. We really appreciated that it was very private. The 5 acres back up to a road with a home across the street. The homeowner was out of town while we were there so we felt nicely secluded. If he had been there, the fire-pit and some cleared-out space for tents would have been within eyesight of his property. A neighbor who was watching his place stopped by one morning to say hello to us and she was incredibly nice (as was her dog). Everything was what we expected. The place had a shovel to clear away brush...it was also helpful to build a cat-hole. We were only about 10-15min drive from town, about 25min from Great Sand Dunes National Park. Awesome central but secluded location. We were really happy we ended up staying on Jamie's land.

    Didn’t stay there because there were thunderstorms moving through the valley. Having said that, I wasn’t sure if I was even at the right place when I got there. The coordinates sent me to an old adobe house

    This campsite was great! If you want a secluded campsite all by yourself in the CO desert, this is for you! We loved our stay. Land as far as you can see, Mt. Blanca looming over you, and peace and quiet. We had 15mph winds and we still enjoyed ourselves. We woke up in the middle of the night to see the best starry sky of our lives, then woke in the morning to a remarkable horizon sunrise. Golden light hitting everything and warming you. Exactly what you want while camping.

    Oh, make sure to check the lock box by the pole! I thought it was trash, but it’s actually a welcome journal that you can sign.

    Make sure to use the google coordinates to get there, or talk to Jamie, because it’s out there. And I’m sure it can be easy to miss the turn, though we found it quickly. There is property across the street but we didn’t see or hear anyone.

    No fires allowed this time of year, but pups are always allowed :)San Luis Star Gazer RetreatSan Luis Star Gazer RetreatMake sure to wake up for the sunrise and the stars
