NOW OFFERING RIVER FLOATS ON THE BEAUTIFUL RIO GRANDE RIVER WITH PICK-UP AND RETURN TO HIPCAMP. New to Hipcamp, but want to share my beautiful property with others. Located on the bank of the Rio Grande River with access to the river at all times. Property is rustic now, but improvements will continue to be made as time goes on. Come help me develop this beautiful location into the best Hipcamp in New Mexico. Just 14 miles of the Chile Capital of the World, Hatch, NM, come during chile harvest to take home fresh green chile right out of the field. 21 miles from Las Cruces, where you will find plenty of events and entertainment, should you so desire. Spaceport, America, T or C, White Sands are all within a day's drive, and Fort Selden is just a few miles down the road, as is Blue Moon Bar and Grill. My dad first came to this property as a farm hand for the elderly couple who owned it. This was in the 1930's. He met my mother, who lived 6 miles down the road, in 1939. She was just 14. Every Sunday he would ride those 6 miles to have supper with her and her family and in 1940, 2 weeks after her 16th birthday, they married. They traveled around before coming back here, buying a small portion of this farm from the elderly owners and farming the rest for them, but in 1953, the man died (his name was Ernest Ward) in the small concrete house I now use for storage, that my dad had built for he and his wife when he first came to work for them. My parents built a home for his widow in Hatch (14 miles) and bought the farm from her. My family has owned it since. I was gone for 31 years, but returned to the land and place I love and plan to stay here till I die!

Good location, friendly hosts who are new to Hipcamp. Camping sites might be better marked.

The location was perfect. My children found so much to keep themselves busy they fell asleep ahead of their normal sleep schedule. The location being right next to the Rio Grande provided great photo opportunities. Ms. Carolyn and her daughter were very helpful with assisting with the location. I hope to revisit again.

The scenery was beautiful! We did the river float as a family of 5, it was great! The host was very attentive to our needs. She supplied us with life jackets and picked us up after we floated the river. We will definitely book it again.
