~ Chief Ouray Tipi~

This tipi was named to honor Chief Ouray, the chief of the Uncompahgre band of the Ute Tribe. The Utes graced these lands in the past and our tipi pay respect to their history and culture.

The Chief Ouray Tipi is the largest tipi, at 18 feet, and is the first tipi closest to the short farm trail. It has the best amenities out of our three tipis, including carpeted sleeping space, a futon bed, shelving, and solar lights.  Two people can sleep comfortably on the futon bed. If booking for more than 2, the tipi can fit two others inside - it is recommended to bring your own sleeping pad for those on the floor. We recommend folks bring their own sleeping bags/bedding for maximum comfort.

Live like the natives did in a ancient Ute Tipi located on an ancient Tepee site. Enjoy mountain views, killer stars, and the homestead "FARMbiance." A great hub for many outdoor recreation activities (rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, rafting, fishing, Jeeping, hot springs, Great Sand Dunes National Park, and so much more...)

We loved the tipi and wish we had more time to stay more than one night! We arrived late but someone still came out to greet us and provide blankets! Beautiful farm, would love to come again.

The teepee was super fun to stay in! We had no idea they had 80 pigs. Baby pigs were born a few days before we arrived and then again while we were staying there. It was magical!

Beautiful sunset and sunrises on Sol Mountain Farms. Located in the high alpine desert. Huge sky country will great views of the surrounding mountains.

I can now mark sleeping in a tipi off the list!

The location is beautiful and the teepees are very cool. There was no one theres (they did say there might not be anyone around) which gave the whole arrival an odd, and slightly creepy, feel as it seemed like an abandoned pig farm. The pictures probably make it look a little more glamorous than it is. We found them to be pretty run down and a little desolate. Honestly, I'd probably take one of the tent camping sites rather than the teepee if I was to do it again. There were a bunch of baby pigs which our kids loved, but it also makes the site smell like pigs and flies. Overall, we'd stay there again, but make sure expectations are set - it's a beautiful, very primitive, site.

Thanks for the honest review, Kevin! Yes we wish we'd been around to welcome you but we are busy farmers with unpredictable schedules. We are glad you enjoyed your stay nonetheless and we appreciate the honest feedback. We are definitely a more primitive operation as many of our pens and structures are built of 100% recycled materials. The photos are indeed very glamorous but we sure are a pig farm and we think your opinion is very valuable for future guests to manage expectations, despite the incredible work the Hipcamp photographers have done = ) We have primitive accommodations in a magical setting and we're so glad you were able to enjoy the beauty!
