Your own camping plot minutes from the Sand Dunes National Park Gates, at the base of Mt. Blanca (a 14’er)! Wake up to unobstructed million dollar views. Lovely area with lots of wildlife. Pulls campers from all walks of life and everyone seems to have a huge smile on their face. A little town with sundries is close enough for goods but far enough to forget you’re near civilization. The nights sky has an unobstructed view of the sky (no light pollution). Easy to get to and close to the sand dunes. If you have a large group we recommend booking both sites.

A little challenging to find but once we did spot is great! If you google search the coordinates the address works from there. Not a private spot to use restroom but a beautiful lot for sure!

Great convenient site close to the Great Sand Dunes! This was a great convenient spot close to the dunes. We arrived to the dunes late in the day so we were relieved to know our campsite was so close by. The stars at night were phenomenal and the views during sunset and sunrise were absolutely lovely. We had a couple strong winds blow through but we have a pretty strong reliable tent that held up- though it made it too sketchy to have a fire.

Notes: the coordinates are not accurate when put into google maps and the space could be a bit better marked. We drove back and forth several times trying to make sure we were in the right spot.

There is a close by road and lots of dwellings in view. It’s not the most private space, but it was extremely quiet and pretty dark at night.

Overall, we would camp here again but be a bit more prepared for the high winds after we had to chase down our cooking gear a few times!

Great views, too rough of surface for tent in my opinion.... easy to find!

This location had a wonderful view of the mountain nearby and with a clear sky at night you can see every single star in the sky. Breath-taking views.
The wind can be a struggle for tent camping, and the location can be difficult to find at first. Aaron was helpful in us finding it though!

Our setup for the evening. :)Beautiful sunset and view of the mountain nearby!

If you're looking for a quiet spot with incredible views, look no further! We had nearly uninterrupted views of the Sangre de Cristo range, were ~20-minute drive to Great Sand Dunes NP, and enjoyed our time here.
