The property is a mix of living quarters and a business with a beautiful 2-acre lake accessible in the summer. Hipcampers will be camping in a life and work environment but have their little piece of land to enjoy. 

They will find endless activities surrounding our property while enjoying their stay. There are miles of mountain and road bike trails easily accessed from the campsite. Rafting, golf, swimming, fishing, hiking, off-roading, dirt bike/ATV trails, Colorado National Monument, and the list goes on and on within a short distance. The campsites are 2 minutes from downtown Fruita for those who would enjoy good restaurants, great coffee shops, or a drink. You will find a grocery store, pharmacy, and gas station in the same area. 

To consider: Our place is great but not for everyone. We have three convenient sites, all with electricity and water and one with sewage.  They all have great views and are very close to the town of Fruita. Every hipcampers can enjoy the beach and the lake between April and October. But: the property is used by THE GONDOLA SHOP, which restores ski gondolas. Monday to Friday, you might hear some light noise and see employees walking around. BECAUSE OF THE POTENTIAL HAZARD, WE DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN ON OUR PROPERTY. We ask that all vehicles drive no faster than 10 miles per hour for the same reason. 

We will consider a group of campers or mixed camper/tents as long as you have your bathroom. Please email us with any requests you might have. We are open to discussing any inquiries. When our lake is full and usable between May and October, our place is great for gatherings and a big BBQ.  

All campsites have access to our beach between May and October. (Lake will fill up in May)

Camp #1 / 30amps + water (with hose). This site is on an old concrete pad and will need some leveling. This site is close to the tenant's house, but your camper will face the opposite way and you will get your privacy. They have a very nice Australian Shepherd that will come and say hi. For this camp, we accept campers class B and C ONLY max 27 feet. NO TRAVEL TRAILERS. It would be best to park nose 1st to access the electric post and back up to get out. This site has lots of shade in the summer. This site has no fire pit and no picnic table.

Camp #2 / 50amps + water + sewage. This site is on compact gravel and will need some leveling. This site is very close to the main shop and owner's apartment. You will see and maybe hear some action on weekdays. We accept vans, small campers class C, and motorhomes class B max 30 feet. It's a pull-through site and easy to park. This site could accommodate two or three campers (extra $). This site is in the sun in the summer and has a small picnic table but no fire pit.

Camp #3 / 50amps + water. This site is long and wide, on compact gravel, and needs very little leveling. On this site, your camper/van will be facing the lake. You can drink your coffee with the birds singing. We accept vans, small campers class C, and motorhomes class B max 30 feet. This site could accommodate two or three campers (extra $) and has an in-ground fire pit. We could also consider a longer fifth-wheel. (email 1st please)

There are some cars running in and out the site during mid-night.
And cut off my water, not all the sites has full power connections (110V, 30 amp and 50 amp) or sewage hookup.

Absolutely excellent experience for our first Hipcamp! The property is great with wonderful setup for RVs. The host was fabulous explaining what all she has done to the property. Had a great walk around the lake with her. We will definitely return!

Great stay!. Fantastic views of The Colorado Monument to the south ,the Book Cliffs to the north, and even Mt Garfield and The Grand Mesa to the east when standing up on the beach by the little lake. Site and property are as described. We were here 3 nights with 2 little dogs in a SUV and rv trailer. Great base camp for the area. Quite close to downtown Fruita as well. Also just a great place to relax in the country.

This was a great site with amazing views! Dominique was friendly, accommodating and very responsive. Site was level gravel and was nice to have full hookups. It was convenient being so close to town but certainly didn’t feel like it. We will definitely be back!

Dominique was super friendly. She even met us in the dark while it was raining to make sure all was good for our first night. It's also very quiet with great views. And this spot is a very close and easy bike ride to town.

Hipcamper Andrea

We loved our stay here and definitely plan to stay here again on future trips. The location was very convenient (about 1.5 miles from downtown?) yet quiet. It was close enough to go into town easily, even close enough to bike straight from the campsite. Our site was perfectly level, which was awesome. An added bonus was being able to plug into power to recharge our batteries. I also really liked that the site was on stone and not dirt so you weren't tracking dirt in/out all day. Something small that others might care to know if you have ever camped in the area and are there for several days. The owner was friendly yet also let us have enjoy our time. She was also very accommodating to us. Our friend had reserved one of the other sites and she let him park by us so that we could all hang out together at the same campsite (we happened to have one of the larger sites that could fit his vehicle). We had campervans and this was a great site to accommodate those.
