Space #1 was an open area with a great view. Linda's ranch is close enough to Durango that you could spend a day exploring all there is to offer and return to a quiet area to soak in a mountain sunset. Linda and her husband were very gracious hosts.
Bring plenty of bug spray for mosquitos!

Linda was really nice and helpful! She communicated with us the days leading up to our visit about the conditions and that was much appreciated. She also provided us with ideas of what to do in the area - we’ve been going to Durango for almost 20 years and discovered some new spots! We would camp there again in the future.

We enjoyed Linda’s ranch! The horses and mules were friendly. Unfortunately thanks to a spat of rain, so were the mosquitoes! But the space was nice and flat, super quiet and easy to access. Thanks again!!

Thanks Mark! You guys were brave souls who came prepared with mosquito spray. Glad you got some time to enjoy Durango and surrounding mountains without getting bitten. Come back in the fall when there are no mosquitos! Linda

Linda was a great host. Met us when we arrived and helped us find a space. She accommodated us when we arrived a day late. She had water to fill our tank with when we arrived and left. She was quick to respond via Hipcamp messages and had lots of suggestions of things to do around the area. We would definitely stay here again!

Linda is an exceptional host. Her space is nothing but magic. From the beautiful ranch with friendly animals to the midnight stars, this place is nothing short of fantastic. Linda makes sure the stay is the best it can, offering local to do's and always lookin out for us if/when weather turned for the worse. This was our first hip camp experience, and I fear that after our stay on this quite ranch, the bar has been set beyond repeatable reach. I would certainly recommend this Hip camp experience

Linda is the kindest, most gracious host. She has plenty of land to accommodate all types and sizes of RVs. The property is beautiful and quiet. We visited in the Spring and the valley was very green. Water available on-site, abundant sunshine if you have solar, but pack out your trash and no dump.
Linda and Jeff know the area very well, and are a great resource for whatever your interests are.
