Pitch your tent or park in the "sloped" pasture and enjoy the view of the Animas Valley. Just 8 miles north of Durango off of the million dollar highway. Across the highway from Honeyville and across the river from fun at the Bar D  Ranch or James Ranch Harvest Grille.  Durango Mountain Resort is just up the road.  Horses and cattle grazing in the pasture below and the apple trees and the honey bees are in full production.  Mission Ridge red cliffs with the mysterious silhouettes and glow at sunset.  At night you may hear the Animas River below or some animal sounds. Name the constellations among the amazing view of the stars! 

Please provide what you will be driving and camping in, along with guesstimate of your arrival time for a quick booking response. Safe travels.

Great spot a short drive outside Durango, with a friendly and helpful host. Toilet and shower facilities are basic, but do what they need to. Beautiful evening and morning views.

Melinda is the best host you could ask for, the property is fantastic, views are beautiful. Exactly what I was looking for in my sprinter and my pup loved it!

This field with a stunning view was just what we needed for the night. The friendly host greeted us, settled us in, and we had a peaceful sleep.

This is by far the best experience I’ve had on my two week trip. The setting, with meadows, two horses grazing and the red rock cliffs glowing in the sunset, was utterly relaxing. Chris, a friend of Melinda’s was terrific in showing me what I might need: solar shower, potty, barbecue and where to find hot springs in town. And, then Melinda was both gracious and kind enough to help me find another route to Montrose (my next stop) due to road construction on route 50. All in all, a wonderful stay. I would definitely return, this time to do some nearby hiking.

We had a great time and it was a fence area so your puppies could run free. The view was amazing and everything was good and they even recommended a place for dinner.

We had a great time camping at Animas River Valley and the views really were stunning. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating and we really appreciated the flexibility on our arrival time as we were driving from the other side of the state. Wish we could have stayed more than one night. Great Experience.

Melinda’s site is the most beautiful of our 6 week trip! The outdoor toilet in the tent covering was very satisfactory. Would have liked to try the solar shower but ran out of time. Melinda was very clear in her communication and directions. The friendly greeting by Chris made us feel welcome and comfortable.

Melinda was incredible, she took an extra mile to meet all my needs. After a long day of traveling, she offered a cup of coffee and some fruit for a little midnight snack! The traffic from the street wasn’t bad at all and I slept like a little baby!

Melinda has a beautiful view of the animas river valley! We set up our little teardrop facing the pastures and slept very well. Melinda was friendly and accommodating. If you're bringing a teardrop, make sure you have a way to level your trailer as there is a slight slope to the field.
