Little Walnut Haven

1 site · RV6 acres · Silver City, NM
Ten minutes from Silver's historic downtown, fifteen minutes to Walmart, and once you get here you're in a world of your own.. Your off-the-beaten-track concrete pad (18' x 23', so best for vans and class B RVs) is on a dead end off a dead end, and far enough from me to give you complete privacy. (It's a short distance from the house front, but as I use a second driveway that goes to the back you won't see very much of me.) I'm on six acres of land with trees all around the pad, and you're five minutes away from the Gila National Forest, with Gomez Peak visible from your secluded one space, one vehicle site. It's dark and quiet at night, with just enough dogs barking to remind you you're in New Mexico. I have earplugs if you don't. That's about it. This is a new venture for me and I'm happy to listen to any suggestions you might have that would make your stay even more enjoyable. Welcome! And a P.S. I hope I can take away soon: There's a road construction project underway on Little Walnut Road, the way to the house. You may experience a brief delay or a short detour as you go up or down.
