I am so honored to write a review for my wonderful experience at Eric and Anisa’s hipcamp. I booked this last minute and was welcomed with open arms. Eric, Anisa, and their son made me feel safe and comfortable and immediately at home. Their generosity was above and beyond. I truly enjoyed talking to them and learning about what they do, and I also enjoyed the beauty of their homestead and the privilege of staying there. I highly recommend this hipcamp. This is a safe, happy place in a beautiful area that I know will provide a haven for people for years to come.

What an amazing and wonderful experience, and what a beautiful and remote location! Thank you so much, Eric and Anisah.
I must say that a rare snow storm was bearing down on the high plains of northeast Colorado as I was traveling back roads to get there and my GPS was not behaving well. Anisah came out to find me and led me to their homestead. Five or 6 inches of snow fell overnight in the storm. In the morning Anisah insisted we drive in her pickup to check out the conditions of the roads to the interstate. We agreed I would be fine because some vehicles had passed and the snow was pretty much gone from those vehicle tracks. At this point I had been on the road close to five weeks and i felt so cared for in a challenging situation (and she is a wonderful storyteller).
I was coming from the southwest through local roads, and i got a bit turned around. It is pretty close to the interstate to the north but be sure to follow her directions (although it is basically a grid of farm roads). I am so blown away by the wonderful people I have met on this trip, and Anisah is right at the top of the list.

Very attentive and helpful host. Interesting area to see up close. learned a lot about the land, saw a historic sod house which they hope to repair. 15 or so miles on a dirt road to get there, but even that added to the adventure.

Great place to stop with the kids while on a road trip! Fun to see working farm with animals. Very nice hosts.

Fun place to take kids to see a farmWe camped between trees. Nice because can be very windy in this area. Storms were forecasted in the area and hosts were very gracious to offer shelter if needed. Sheep and goats were so much fun! Wonderful hosts! Thank you for your kindness.

We stayed one night at Eastern Colorado Homestead and it was just what we were looking for. Eric and Anisah were very hospitable. Anisah was very knowledgeable about the land and history of the area. She showed our kids the rabbits, chickens, ducks, sheep and goats. She also showed them how to look for fossils in the rocks. They were even able to bottle feed a baby icelandic sheep. We added a dozen eggs onto our order, which were great for breakfast later in the week. There was one other couple staying there, but they have a lot of space, so we had privacy.

The hosts are great! Great communication and very nice. They even make and sell homemade bread in the mornings!

Remember no bathrooms on the premises. They are in process of repairing the composting toilet.

We sheltered in the house of the host during a tornado 🌪 warning. The hosts were very gracious.
