Very nice place with lots of room, seating, picnic tables, and fire places. Just make sure you get the gate code before you arrive.

Auge is great host . As they were holding a members only celebration, they accommodated all our needs even inviting us to join them to eat and play games with them . Also Roxy and Harvey were very welcoming as well. Great 4th of July get away. I highly recommend anyone to stay at this peaceful site .

Lovely site and wonderful hosts
When we got there the hosts were waiting. They were extremely polite and excited to have 8 people on their camp cite. We had so much space and suggestions from the hosts for places to eat and things to do in Albuquerque. They had paper towels, a pavilion, and plenty of grey water. A pleasant experience that me and my friends will never forget. 11/10 campsite!

Rebecca was kindly accommodating when we realized we needed to make some changes to our reservation. Our children enjoyed exploring the terrain.

Great place to stay
My and my friends stopped here going and coming from our spring break trip and it was a great place to stop! Very large camping grounds and the permit tent was helpful and nice after a week of camping and not wanting to unpack! Just bring lights because it gets very dark at night!

Secluded and beautiful, tent provid
Great secluded camp site! Loved that we didn't have to set up a tent. Drive up to and from the site is beautiful. My kids had a blast exploring and my husband got to swing in his hammock. Very secure with a locked gate to the land.

Great Stay
Rebecca was an awesome host. The site is super nice and well maintained. I stayed in their all terrain tent which seemed almost brand new. The compostable bathrooms were really clean. Overall, a great experience and I would recommend.

This is a beautiful camp site, good for fairly large groups. One of the best Hipcamp places I’ve been. Rebecca is a very good host.

Excellent time.....
We had a wonderful time staying at the campsite area. Rebecca and her clan were very helpful and accommodating, and made our stay so wonderful. The breakfast on Saturday was the best huevos rancheros I've had in a very long time. Highly recommend. We definitely would go back and stay there again..

We had a wonderful time staying here for four nights. Our host Rebecca and her crew were wonderful. The breakfast on Saturday morning was the best huevos rancheros I think I've ever had. Rebecca is an excellent cook. They went above and beyond our needs. And made everything very comfortable for us. Highly recommend, we will be back. We were here for the Albuquerque balloon fiesta which was a perfect location to be close enough to the park and ride to go to the fiesta, along with being remote enough to be in the mountains and enjoy the peace and quiet. Easy access to get to the freeway and to go North to Santa fe, or go around the mountain, andl of course to go into Albuquerque.

Adobe magic beneath the sky.
My family is on a 15-state road trip, camping as we go, and this might have been our favorite place to camp! Our welcome by Michael was so warm and familiar, we were able to use their tent (which saved the hassle of setting up our own), and the entire feel felt like community. We cooked in the adobe kitchen and read on the picnic tables, then watched the full moon rise. We just loved it so.

Perfect One Night Getaway
We had such a great time! It was the first campout for our 2 year old daughter. The campground was clean and secure, with a nice outhouse, cooking area, and a gazebo. Rebecca was quick to answer any questions via text, and Michael met us at the gate to let us in and show us around. Will definitely come again!

A cute little grouping of rustic buildings on a hillside with composting toilet and access to Sandia Crest via a fun, steep dirt road. It was very quiet.
