Come stay in our yurt and get the chance to meet our little herd of camels and wake up to the views of the gorgeous surroundings!  Travel down a few miles of dirt roads and you will find our little oasis of 35 acres.  The hard-sided yurt sits right next to the field where our camels and donkeys roam.  Set apart from the main house, sitting in Trujillo Canyon, and surrounded by BLM/National Forrest, its the perfect spot for recharging.  Our property is off the grid and allows you to disconnect for a little while and there is a nice creek to go and sit by.  Each stay also includes a farm tour if you are interested.  The night skies have little light pollution and are perfect for star gazing.  We can't wait for you to come and stay with us!

We loved spending time on Matt and Meghan’s camel farm. The accommodations were fabulous, all of the animals were amazing, and the hosts were kind, incredibly knowledgeable, and all around fabulous! If you are reading this, book this stay! You will not regret it. And grab some of Meghan’s fudge if you get a chance, it is amazing.

Big mamma is so photogenic! The donkeys are awesome, and love ear scratchin’Anita is the sweetest!

What a wonderful experience! Meghan and Matt were so welcoming and the yurt is delightful and cozy. We loved visiting with the camels, cats, and donkeys, and Matt offered so many insights on the farm tour. I will remember the camel kisses and nuzzles forever. The setting is perfect too! What fabulous views of the mountains during the day and the stars at night. I would recommend this to anyone!

There’s something very special and sacred about Matt’s land. I felt right at home when I arrived. The yurt was clean, comfortable, and the camels were right outside our door when we woke up! Matt took us on a farm tour with his son, and we learned so much about the history of the land, camels, the natural medicinal plants of the land and what his plans are for the future on the property. It’s a place you can completely unplug from tech, connect with nature and animals. I can’t wait to go back. This place is a must see!

What a great place is to disconnect for a night. We enjoyed chatting with Matt and his son and seeing the animals.

Thanks!

My 2 friends and I are travel nurses in our 20s and we are always looking for the next adventure. Bonus points if there are animals involved. Camels and a Yurt was the perfect stay before we hit up the sand dunes the next day. The Yurt was adorable and the animals + farm tour was such a fun experience. Between the 3 of us we don’t have a ton of camping experience, and we weren’t very prepared anyway since we booked this site on a whim while we were already traveling, but the yurt had all the necessities for a great stay for the night. Matt was a great tour guide and Meghan’s camel fudge was to die for! The fresh farm eggs for breakfast were so fun too. And the mountain views were awesome! It’s the kind of place everyone should stay at once, we already can’t wait to go back!
