Time away from normalcy...
Very accommodating site and host. Lino made sure that I knew what was where and what was available. He checked on me one morning while trimming brush otherwise was was "invisible". Other than road noise from 550 and neighborhood dogs a very peaceful place to stay.

A wonderful, quite place to sit along the Aminas River and enjoy the birds of the river. Owner is a real pleasure to speak with, fascinating life story and loves his land

We absolutely loved our stay with Lino! The rv was clean, well prepped and comfortable. The site itself was truly a slice of heaven. We loved swimming and hanging out in nature. We will definitely be back!

Camping next to the River
Loved Lino’s place! You can tell the hosts put in a lot of hard work and thought into making the place enjoyable. . Nice, private space next to the river. Great place to relax. The place is well stocked with a variety of kitchen tools and cook wear. The bed is very comfortable and the sheets are smooth and soft. Camper is very clean and everything works correctly. It was so nice , I stayed an extra night!

Beautiful, peaceful river retreat
What a perfect hidden gem with incredibly friendly hosts! They had thought of every possible thing I could need and even offered to help me set up my tent. I got to swim in the river, swing in the hammock, and watch the moon rise over a campfire while the cottonwood blew. Fresh spring water and an immaculate portapotty, too. Right down the road from Aztec Ruins National Monument, so I was able to slip in before the crowds in the morning. If you’re ever in the Four Corners, make time to seek Paw Paws out!

I don't even know where to begin as my visit was perfect from start to finish. Rick (aka Lino) meets you with a smile and shows you around the property and all of the ins and outs. So you know exactly what to expect. The pictures can never capture the tranquility and peace of the place. Laying on the hammock or swing staring up at the trees just instantly relaxes you and makes you forget all of your troubles and day to day busyness. The river is absolutely inviting (definitely wear shoes. Rick will suggest where to park a second vehicle if you are fortunate enough to have two) and you can float down the river. From the property to the park is a two hour float. We dishes but caught nothing, but they were jumping. The port-a-potty may or may not be cleaned out but surprisingly extremely clean and not stinky at all! My son and daughter-in-law are local(ish) and plan to go back cuz they also fell in love with it. I could go on and on.

Peaceful camping at PawPaws
This place was a gem. River access, lots of shade in a roomy area. The host, Rick (aka Lino) was always around to help with whatever we needed, but left us on our own unless something came up. There was lots of firewood available. Basically whatever we needed was there. It’s really close to Aztec but it feels very remote. We will definitely be going back for another stay.

Absolutely perfect! Everything you could possibly imagine is provided for here to camp in comfort, plenty of firewood, solar lights, Citronella candles, a remarkably clean (nearly immaculate) port-a-potty, a bench by the river to sip your coffee, a swing to play on, a table to prep food, a hammock to relax in, a water pump and pail for potable water, and a place to swim. To top it a off the host is incredible! My phone was acting up to check weather and when I heard thunder in the distance I messaged him to see if he could access a better radar, which he was more than happy to do. As a solo female camper, I felt completely at home. I also appreciated that he didn't assume experience as a camper. He made me aware of noises I might hear around (a beaver slapping it's tail on the water was definitely not something I would recognize) so I wouldn't be alarmed during the night. I will consider my future plans with this Hipcamp in mind and will plan any trips in the general vicinity around a visit here.

River camping
This is such a peaceful camping spot! It was the perfect mini vacation as I drove cross-country. The hosts gave me excellent advice for local sightseeing, and the swimming spot in the river is a perfect way too relax! Definitely book this for a relaxing time!

Paw Paw’s was even better than we hoped. It is truly a little slice of paradise and Lino and his wife are so nice! My kids kept asking if we could just live there! From the beautiful river to the hammock and swing. You will love it! Highly recommend! We hope to come back one day!

Paw Paw was the perfect host! So kind and helpful and very generous! He has truly thought of everything you might need at his gorgeous site right on the river, and even happily provided a few things we forgot to bring. We had just the best time and wouldn't change a thing. We will definitely be back as this is an incredible space for an incredible price, we felt right at home and didn't want to leave. Thank you so much Paw Paw! And happy birthday!

Hidden gem
Lino’s place is absolutely amazing. It’s right on the river with beautiful scenery. The pictures don’t do it justice! Lino is an amazing host who has thought of everything. There’s plenty of firewood (at no extra charge), he has provided lighter fluid along with tiki torch fluid. There is a port a potty, which is well maintained and water available though a water pump. It was extremely peaceful. I would recommend to anyone needing a place to camp in the area!

Perfect ending to our anniversary😁
Pawpaw was the most accommodating host we have ever had! The pictures don't do this place justice, he has seriously thought of everything. The spot is right on the river, he has a generator you can rent for power and offers for you to fill your fresh water tanks at the house. He let us pick fresh apples right from the trees in his yard and made sure we had plenty of fire wood and oil for the tiki torches! I would 1000% recommend a stay here!

Great stay on the river
Hands down, one of my favorite campsites ever. I hunted for a site that wouldn’t be filled with party campers during a long holiday weekend and this was perfect. The hosts have obviously put in a lot of love and effort to make a comfortable campsite. We set up our tent under a canopy of trees that shaded our tent all day. The host created a seating are around two fire rings. There is a swing and a hammock that my teen and tween loved hanging out on. They also showed us how to kayak in the Animas River which borders the campsite. This campsite is behind (but not too close) to the hosts house so they were available for questions and for a guitar sing along. The ruins are really close and Durango would be an easy day trip.

Welcoming campsite by the river
We loved staying here! Rick and Tammie are wonderful hosts, and Rick has done so much work to make the campsite a real treat for family camping. There are swings, a river to swim in, firewood for s’mores, and Rick and Tammie even brought us plums from their tree. We’d love to go back again! (Also, Aztec Ruins National Monument is right down the road and was so engaging for both kids and grownups!)

Private River Retreat
We stayed at Rick and Tamie’s camper on the river and had a GREAT experience! The site is located directly on the Animas River. The camper and equipment are in excellent shape and condition. The area has a fire pit, chairs and tables, hammocks and tiki torches. Their place is also conveniently located near the local stores and restaurants. Trails on BLM land, just across the street, offer the chance for a quick hike/bike to start or end your day. I saw plenty of trout jumping in the river and at night we fell asleep listening to the rapids bubble on the river. Bring your poles! What made our stay even better was Rick and Tamie’s hospitality and willingness to accommodate. They truly made our stay special. They will go above and beyond to make sure you have any and everything you might need! Can’t say enough about them! This place is truly a gem. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful location, wonderful hosts
As close to perfection as it gets. Rick met us as we came in, gave us a tour, explained everything clearly, we were able to park right next to the camper we stayed in. Located right by a beautiful river with plenty of shade. The river is fast moving, good for kayaking but Rick had dug out a spot by the shore which makes a great little swimming spot. Insects were minimal, able to sleep comfortably on the hammock. Rick and his wife were fabulous hosts. The good conversation and stories alone would have our stay worthwhile. We cant say enough good things, have been raving to everybody we know
