Enjoy our quaint pond with a pier and waterfall shack, feed the fish and ducks, take a ride on the paddle boat, swing on 2 long tree swings, or read a good book on a hammock.  Enjoy stunning views of Mount Blanca with amazing stargazing.  Enjoy campfire s'mores at our secluded firepit. Take night walks amidst charming fairy lights in Mason Jars. 

Try Pondside-Site #1, with a view of the pond; or Tree Grove-Site #2, nestled in the trees with lovely afternoon shade (no pond view).  Both sites have equal access to all amenities. Though your campsite is near Alamosa and off of highway 160, you will enjoy quiet country seclusion.

We are located in the San Luis Valley, home of the beautiful San Dunes National Park.

NOTICE: These camping sites are in high mountain country, which is subject to freezing, so the water is turned off during the winter months. Electricity remains available.

We loved our stay at the Pond site. The owners were so lovely and even gave us a cute fairy lantern gift. My girls loved the ducks, swings, and paddle boat! I enjoyed a nice walk with our dog around the property. This is a perfect place to stay if you’re in the area. Quiet, peaceful, and only 20 mins to Great Sand Dunes National Park!

Heather and her husband are incredibly kind and hospitable. Their property is so beautiful. We enjoyed watching the sunset over the mountains, feeding the ducks in the ponds and having a campfire in the fire pit at night to stay warm. I would recommend this place to anyone! Could not ask for kinder hosts.

Absolutely lovely property. Heather makes you feel very welcome. We stayed in site 2 in the shade of trees. A rare find in this valley. With hammocks, a great pond with koi and pet ducks that you can paddle boat around with, and a large community fire pit. At night the trees are decorated with beautiful fire fly light jars. So subtle and fairy like. And the Stars are breath taking! Our kids loved it. Great proximity to Sand Dunes, Hot Springs, Wildlife refuge, Zapata Falls, Alamosa, and Monte Vista. For trailers and RV's electric and water at each site. We will definitely book again if in the area.

What a beautiful peaceful place Heather and Patrick offer. We stayed in our camper van in the tree site. Nice shade and water. The firefly lights at night were magical. Close to Sand Dunes NP. Heather was an awesome host and the wonderful goody bag on our arrival,, we knew we arrived at a great campsite. We will be back.
