With a New Year and camping season we are pleased to announce that we have opened the South East side of the property for limited four wheel drive vehicle access and hike in camping with plenty of firewood. We have also opend a vast trail system that is perfect for hiking and those adventurous mountain bikers.  On this side of the property you will have unobstructed veiws of the Mesa Verde, Sleeping Ute, and La Plata Mountain Range. This is truly the gem of the the property. If you really want that private and sucluded camp site, then this is the side of the property for you. This is where the wildlife enter and exit the property, so seeing the wildlife is greater on this side. This will also be an open camping area, if you like the spot set up your cot. Come celebrate the new spring life here at the ranch.

The largest Colorado ranch listed on Hipcamp in the Four Corners Colorado area, nestled in the Summit Ridge with views of New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, and if you squint and lie just a little bit, you can see Arizona. Camp amid the wildlife, sunsets and mountain views. Enjoy the no light pollution sky. This is truly is a stargazer's playground. Many water sport activities--paddle boarding, kayaking, rod and fly fishing just a few minutes drive from this private ranch. Seclusion and privacy isn't an idea, it's a way of life here at the Second Chance. Plenty of hiking with likely encounters with elk, deer, and other Colorado wildlife. 360 degree views of Mesa Verde National Park, the La Plata mountains, and other majestic mountain ranges.

What an amazing farm and camping spot. The hosts were awesome and showed me around their farm. The view and the amenities at the camp site were top notch. I had a clear night and saw an amazing night sky. I would definitely stay here again.

Very helpful, very friendly. Campsite was great, and shower was a plus. Really convenient to Mesa Verde, Canyon of the Ancients, as well as the great restaurants in Cortez.

Robbin and Don are wonderful and responsive hosts that gave us our. The property is beautiful with trails to explore all around the property. Verizon cell service is pretty good, but varies a bit throughout the camp. Stayed a couple days and liked it so much we stayed a few more.

I wanted to head down Durango way for a last minute camping trip over the Labor Day Weekend. I was able to book Second Chance owned by Robbin and Don. Their communication was excellent and they met me when I arrived. Their place encompasses 65 acres between Durango and Cortez. You can tell they have worked hard on their property and there were sites tucked into the trees as well as one with a meadow view, which I chose. There is potable water available and they added a pristine hand built outhouse. They also built a shower enclosure with solar heated water. I enjoyed exploring the property as they have turned former game trails into hiking trails…. With signs. I enjoyed stargazing in the evenings and there is Puett Reservoir Wildlife Area just up the road from their place.

Very well maintained, rustic and private site. Beautiful views of the mountains and the trails were so great! We were lucky enough to have the whole camp to ourselves for 2 nights! The sunsets, the stars, nature, amazing!!! The hosts, Robin and Don, were very attentive and kept in communication with us. Very wonderful people who really care about their property and sharing it with like minded guests! The toilet and shower were very clean and beautifully engineered. It is so cool!!! Will definitely stay again when in the area! Thank you!
