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.

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.

You are basically in a small field in an agricultural area very close to the highway and where the tourist train goes by. Advantages are how close it is to town and easy to get to. There is some traffic noise but it does calm down later at night. The cliffs are especially beautiful in the evening. The person who greeted us and showed us around was very helpful. There is a portable toilet and they had provided us some water and some tables and chairs.

Our stay was fantastic! Melinda was kind and generous and Chris kept us well taken care of. The location was close enough to town for convenience but far enough away to see the stars.
