Hey folks. It's that time of year. Our fall colors are finally coming in and it's a sight to see. We are seeing changes by the day. The wildlife is back and winter is right around the corner. We are working hard every day to open and establish new and more interesting trails. Come join us for the changing of the seasons the Second Chance way, relaxed and stress free. Just because the snow will be flying soon, don't let that stop you. We will have great snowshoeing and light cross country skiing.
We would like to take this time to thank all of the guests who took the time to visit our ranch this year. Thank you for making 2020 a great year. We look forward to your return in 2021.
The largest Colorado ranch listed on Hipcamp in the Four Corners Colorado area, nestled in the Summit Ridge with views of New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, and if you squint and lie just a little bit, you can see Arizona. Camp amid the wildlife, sunsets and mountain views. Enjoy the no light pollution sky. This is truly is a stargazer's playground. Many water sport activities--paddle boarding, kayaking, rod and fly fishing just a few minutes drive from this private ranch. Seclusion and privacy isn't an idea, it's a way of life here at the Second Chance. Plenty of hiking with likely encounters with elk, deer, and other Colorado wildlife. 360 degree views of Mesa Verde National Park, the La Plata mountains, and other majestic mountain ranges. Bring your binoculars, camera, and sense of adventure. Bring your own tent or use one of ours! Shuttle service to sites available.

Amazing property with spectacular views of Mesa Verde. There's plenty of wildlife, we saw a fox and found fresh bear and elk tracks close to our campsite. Robbin & Don were extremely nice hosts and told us a lot of interesting things about their land. They are still developing it. The property is huge and can accommodate both tents and campervans. So if you're looking for a quiet, natural place with great views of the area and teeming with wildlife, look no further!
Great secluded spot close to town
Our stay was wonderful! This place is a true gem.
If you are tent camping, there is an amazing High Camp spot for the ultimate star gazing experience. Multiple other areas with great views for tents, vehicles, and RV’s that are secluded and quiet. There is AT&T cell phone service and you are just a quick, easy drive to either Mancos or Dolores. The hosts are incredibly nice and welcoming! We can’t wait to come back for another visit.
Robin and Don proved to be better hosts than we could have imagined. They are very kind and incredibly proud of the little world they have created on this off-the-grid, inventive, ever growing ranch. We will be back and you’ll want to be too.
Robbin and Don (and their pups!) were such wonderful, attentive hosts! We loved touring the property and hearing about all the blood, sweat, and tears they're putting into making the Second Chance Ranch their dream home. We hope to come back to see the finished product! In the meantime, we enjoyed a site at the edge of the property with mountain views.
The hosts were incredibly kind and friendly. We loved the spot- very private when we arrived, and pretty views all around. Especially during a pandemic- nice to stay in such a spacious, private, clean spot. Highly recommend.
