One of the valleys last original stone homes dating back to 1845. We have been restoring the buildings made from the limestone. The main house which is not yet finished has beautiful etched glass windows of the cattle drives. James Hinds the homesteader and original owner of the ranch created the ware and hinds ditch which supplies our abundant Valley water. He was a prominent attorney and got our water rights given to us forever from President Harris.. It includes water that extends to the middle of the Colorado River and the one mile of our shoreline. Everyday that we live here we give thanks for his wisdom and foresight. The once huge ranch that used to extend across I -70 and to the far side of the Colorado River is now reduced to our beautiful 110 acres, but it is the most beautiful and historic part of his astounding empire.

Site #1 the sheep
Loved this camping spot! The views were amazing and being right next to the river was so nice. Got a friendly send off from the 5 piggy's that were so adorable. Thanks for the great time!

Site #1 the sheep
Good group camp site on river
Stayed at the Sheep site and it was large with good shade. The one next to it was even bigger and had a slightly better view of river. Beautiful though some traffic noise. Great for kids. Not much of a beach situation, but nice to hear the water at night. Lots of large dogs at check-in. Would go again.

Happy campers!
The site was great and everything that Joyce said it would be. Having one more portable toilet on the sight would have been a little more convenient. One did not seem sufficient for the amount of campers that were spread throughout the site. The location is great and property was wonderful. We would definitely go back!

Great over night raft spot!
We wanted an easy local overnight raft spot. This was perfect! Joyce and her daughter are fantastic. They even helped us run shuttle to the put in at two Rivers in Glenwood. We took out that afternoon at their river front camp and the rafted to silt the next morning. The kids got to feed the animals and loved it! Will definitely return.
