Cedar Hills Oliva Ranch is a 105-acre ranch with nine 11.6-acre campsites, each of them on beautiful and varying heights and terrain, with a secluded feel as each is located out of view from the other campsites. They are excellent for "primitive" camping year-round, and comprise wildlife (deer, elk, bear, hawks, antelope, etc.), grassy meadows, cedar-covered hills both gradual and steep, sandstone rock formations, seasonal white sand arroyos, and the occasional cattle wandering through. Because of its southern Colorado geography, snow typically does not accumulate deeper than 3"-4", even in the deepest winter months, so it makes camping just as easy and pleasant from November through March. Each campsite has its own character and unique views of nature, so nine camping trips on each of our sites will feel different from the previous adventure, each presenting a distinctly intimate feel. Additionally, a great benefit of Cedar Hills Oliva Ranch is while campers may enjoy deafening silence and see every star in the Milky Way Galaxy on a clear night, just 10 minutes from the ranch south on CR 69 lies a 24-hour gas station and three fast food restaurants. From there, another 5 minutes south, is the historic town of Walsenburg, where you may find expanded restaurant choices, a Safeway, and hardware store for other provisions - and more! In case of a "medical mishap," Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center is approximately 18 minutes from any of our campsites, and open 24 hours. Lastly, while not visible from the ranch, a new cell tower was erected approximately 2 miles northeast and is very reliable from anywhere on the ranch when having a clear view of the eastern horizon. We look forward to hosting you and your fellow campers at Cedar Hills Oliva Ranch. It is beautiful, private and secluded, and provides a great environment for all ages and levels of spirit. And if needed, the anchors of modern convenience and necessities are not far. If not heaven itself, we feel our ranch is at least in the same zip code. See you soon!This is one of our favorite spots on the ranch! As photos will reveal, this site rests in the "pocket" of Pancho's Crescent. From the road and every place nearby, the campsite is not visible as it rests 25' below ground level. The crescent is a seasonal arroyo, and every so often cattle will migrate to the west from the arroyo trail. It is possible to drive down to the site from a number of paths. We'll help you choose the best way. It is quite beautiful at daybreak and dusk, taking on different personalities throughout the day. We think you'll enjoy your privacy.

Pancho's Crescent at Oliva Ranch
Pancho's Crescent was a great spot to camp, so quiet at night yet only a short drive from town and Lathrop state park when it got hot out. The night sky was brilliant with so many stars and little light pollution, and could easily walk up the hill to the south of the crescent to get a fantastic 360 degree view of the area or just enjoy the mountains to the west from camp.
