We tent camped and it was wonderful. Fire pit was already there and Dupree brought us wood for quick fire and cooking. The area has beautiful views. Listened to the elk calls and coyotes at night.

Depree's land was almost as amazing as she is! It was a gorgeous stay with views of the trees, mountains, wildlife, and the stars. We came on a windy day and she helped us to pick a good spot to help with the wind. We were about 45 minutes away from the gorgeous white sand dunes. The surrounding cities are cute and hospitable. Theres many hiking trails in the lincoln forest around to choose from, we did the trails at the trestle recreation center which was so cool. If you're looking for a wonderful gem to stay in New Mexico, Edge of Rez is it! Just be sure to a bring a jacket

WONDERFUL MAGICAL PLACE - BOOK NOW!
The best stay I’ve had in my entire life. I didn’t get the chance to meet the host unfortunately due to packing sight seeing into one day, but wow BOOK ASAP. To listening to elk callings and amazing stars like you’ve never seen before - this is the most magical place ever.

What a wonderful experience! The land at Edge of the Rez was so stunning. Beautiful views and valleys, wild horses and elk. And Depree was an amazing hostess, always making sure we had whatever we might need. We will definitely return!

Enchanting place!
We loved our stay on Dupree's land. We hiked around and couldn't go two feet without seeing a new and different little (or huge) mushroom, tracks, all kinds of amazing things to explore. We could hear the elk butting heads every morning and evening, coyotes chatting in the night. We had a super fun fire in the teepee. Dupree herself was such a beautiful person and so lovely to our kiddos. She knows a lot about the land and wildlife that surrounds her. We learned a lot and my kids actually asked if we could live there when we left. Thanks Dupree for a wonderful stay and the memories we will cherish forever!

Thanks Depree!
We loved our one-night stay! Depree is a charming and gracious host. We found a perfect spot up the mountain to set up our tent with a view of the sunset. Would have loved to stay longer to explore the land.

Nice campsite and close to Whitesands. We drove in at night and there were an unconceivable amount of large elk and wild horses and a sprinkling of cows. They were also crossing the road. Our host was very helpful checking in with us and warned us about this in advance so we knew to be extra cautious when driving. PLEASE keep this in mind to protect the wildlife and yourself. The red gate was set back from the road so be sure to look for it a bit further back! It was chilly when we went to sleep and quite warm when we woke up. The drive up to the site from 244 was a little rocky but pretty short. There was a welcome flag although the sites didn't appear to be numbered. We hope to stay here again if we are back in the area!

Depree’s Place was beautiful. I would absolutely stay there again. Perfect for my little family of three. There was a firepit and plenty of wood around to use. Plus - wild horses! Majestic and unforgettable to wake up to them grazing outside of our little area. My biggest regret - not enough time. Thanks, Depree!

Beautiful spot up in the mountains
We had a short stay here and arrived after dark. Depree met us outside with a flashlight and directed us to where we could park our van. Would definitely recommend this spot, it was beautiful waking up in the forest! This spot is on the Mescalero Reservation and I highly encourage you to check out their website (https://mescaleroapachetribe.com/) to learn about their history and culture.

Best place to stay!!
My wife and myself stayed here 2 nights and it was amazing! We got to see the beautiful stars and listen to the elk calls all night long. We even got to pick where we set up our tent at. I would recommend this to anyone! It was an amazing experience!!

Beautiful, peaceful nature retreat
Depree is a lovely person. She provided me wood and a Hatchett just as I asked and even gave me some pomegranates. The land is magic, peaceful, inclusive, sunlit. A great place for a reset!

A magical experience that I can’t believe I stumbled upon through this app. It was an honor to be allowed to stay on this reservation and meet Depree. She was so kind and helped with anything I needed. Her land has so much positive energy within it and I will surely be back.

Beautiful private campsite in the m
Beautiful forested mountain setting, very private. We were the only ones there apart from our very gracious hostess (there appear to be only two places where you can realistically park an rv, so it can't really ever be crowded). My wife said she felt much safer on Dupree's property than she did camping in the national forest down the road.

Camping Near the Meadow
This campsite is in a very beautiful location. It was very easy to get to and we were able to park right at the campsite. The campsite has a cleared area for your tent and chairs if you bring them. There is a fire ring at that campsite, and a water faucet is about 100 feet away to refill your water jugs. The campsite is about a couple hundred feet away from the host's house. This proximity along with the gated entrance is convenient in that we were able to leave all of our gear without worrying about it as we were away throughout the day. The host was very nice, asked us if we needed anything but other than that let us be. One of the best parts of this campsite is that we were able to hike around the property up to a meadow where the property meets the Lincoln National Forest Line. In the meadow there were wild horses grazing which was quite magical to see. The area around this site is very pretty. Lots of green grass and trees.

A Great place to EXHALE
What a gift during these crazy times. We were the only campers but there is lots of room. Felt like such a private and peaceful escape! So quiet and lots of wildlife. Dupree was kind and very helpful. Can’t wait to come back again.
