Your own camping plot minutes from the Sand Dunes National Park Gates, at the base of Mt. Blanca (a 14’er)! Wake up to unobstructed million dollar views. Lovely area with lots of wildlife. Pulls campers from all walks of life and everyone seems to have a huge smile on their face. A little town with sundries is close enough for goods but far enough to forget you’re near civilization. The nights sky has an unobstructed view of the sky (no light pollution). Easy to get to and close to the sand dunes.

This property has amazing 360 degree views, and impressive mountains just to the north. A plot of prairie with sage, cactus, and peaceful silence, this is a perfect place for the self sufficient tent camper or for anyone with an RV or camper too. Pet friendly and just minutes away from the national forest, zapata falls hiking trails, and Great Sand Dunes National Park. A must stay!

My friends and I loved staying here! It was super easy to find and very close to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. We were hit with a slight amount of inclement weather but the views were worth it! It was very peaceful and felt secluded as there weren't any other campers around. Will stay here when we visit the Sand Dunes again!

The Great Sand Dunes Base Camp was amazing with stunning views in all directions. The campsite was easy to find with Matthews help (FaceTime) just to make sure I was in the right spot. Great Sand Dunes NP and Zapata Falls were only a short drive away.

Only recommendation would be, let future campers know how high the winds can get. Our tent snapped three poles on the second day. So we left a day early.

I’m sorry to hear that. Generally winds are not an issue in that area. Come back next time for a free stay!

This was a great camp for our purposes - there is a great view of the mountain and the visibility is fantastic so we were able to watch a meteor shower at night. It is a lovely place but if you want total seclusion this isn’t for you - you can see see cars passing on the road in the distance and a trailer relatively close by had a generator (we think) that we could hear through the night.
