Surrounded by the Mogollon Mountains, this glamping casita provides you modern amenities such as a queen bed, stove top, mini fridge, crock pot, dresser, wardrobe and a table and four chairs. There is covered parking for your car right next to the casita and we have a pop up tent that can be used. The tent can be used for outdoor showers as we have a 5 gallon solar heated shower.  We have an outhouse about 40 feet from the casita and you can find the lit-path at night to direct you to it. After going #2 in the outhouse, please pour one scoop of lime down the hole to help decomposition and prevent odors and bugs.

The bed sleeps two comfortably.  If you bring cots, you can host two more people or kids at the casita.  It will be tight but it can work!

There is potable water from our well that is accessible right outside the casita.

There is a space heater inside the casita to keep you warm during the colder season.

Once you step out, you will smell Pinon Pine and be footsteps away from Sapillo Creek, a hike or short drive (4 min) to Lake Roberts, and the Gila National Forest.

Some of the mesas of the Mogollon Mountains still boast pottery and artifacts that date back to the Mogollon Indian civilizations hundreds of years ago.

This is a leave no trace casita, so please take out all of the trash that you make on the property. The Mimbres dump is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays but if you do go out to Deming or Silver City, their dumps are open daily.

Pets are welcome - 1 or 2 dogs, vaccinated and socialized. No smoking. Please bring your own toilet paper.

Very comfortable, clean, great bed and amenities. But no phone service in the whole area or wi-fi or radio. I did a lot of reading. In spite of all the rain and mud I would stay there again but maybe at a different time. Thanks HipCamp for another great place to visit

The casita is cute and as advertised. My husband and I and two kids (age 1 and 4) stayed for two nights. The bed was comfortable. We brought a sleeping bag and pack n play for the kids. It was nice and cozy, but not too cramped. We went to the gila cliff dwellings (about 20 miles away) one day and silver city the next (about an hour). The check in directions were easy. The area is pretty and quiet. Overall we had a nice stay.

The location is great. Very quiet and peaceful and plenty of trees to keep you cool.

I would those who are not used to roughing it with a portable toilet and no running water to think twice. If you truly like camping and don’t miss the nice things then this is 100% for you

The drive up is a treat in itself!

I really loved the place but my wife didn’t as much as I did.

The casita was so cute and very thoughtfully decorated. Surrounding land is gorgeous. Must set up outdoor camping toilet and shower. Many electrical cooking appliaces available. Everything was very well organized, and Jennifer was very helpful.

Super cute, very comfortable bed, and awesome location. We couldn't find a good place to hang the shower, and it was way too cold to expect to be able to do the outside shower anyway. It's like camping but with a warm, comfy bed!

This is a great spot if you've evolved past and are done with the motels at the Interstate exit. The "Escape" is truly off the beaten path and is quite private. It is a great place to disconnect and to really get away from it all. The casita is warm and comfortable, surrounded by great scenery and is a perfect gateway to the Gila Wilderness. Host Jennifer is as nice as she can be and made us feel very welcome. We even got a private tour of the large adobe home on the property, built over the course of 7 years by the previous owner and his help with materials harvested from the property. Beautiful! The Escape is probably not for everyone, but those with an adventurous spirit who long for some peace and quiet in a unique setting will love it!

The two night stay at the Casita hip camp was so cool! We really loved the way it was set up! It was peaceful and comfortable. Was real close to Lake Roberts. It was so cool how the whole property was set up with all the cowboy themed items .
