Welcome to the San Luis Valley; the highest Alpine Valley in the world! This campground sits close to the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. You can also see the San Juan mountain range to the east in the distance. San Juans are part of the NW rim of the Continental Divide. Great Sand Dunes are visible from every site. With unlimited mountain views, beautiful starry night skies, come see the Milky Way, Eclipse, Meteor showers!!! Previously known as High Desert Ranch Campground, this land was originally part of a large ranch in the 1980s. The main ranch is still up and running but this parcel was used for many purposes over the years. In 2021, we were featured in USA Todays Ten Best for star gazing! My property has 360 degree mountains views with the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range as our back yard. Nearby you can find many different trail systems for all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts. From hiking to jeeping, ATV or dirt biking and equestrians - you can find it all! You will be surrounded by ranch land and state land with Wildlife Refuge just two miles away. Accommodations for those with livestock, just make sure you chat in advance your initial message. Close to BLM, and National Forest as well as 3 hot springs within 20 miles and the Great Sand Dunes. We are still under construction and making changes often so bear with us while we continue to add and change things for the better!

High Peaks-Best Peaks
Nestled between the San Juan's and the Sangre de Cristo range.....what's there not to love? Christine's High Peaks Campground was great, both for location and stellar hosting. Close enough to the Dunes and the cute little town of Crestone. Communication was a bit delayed due to me being off grid without internet, but no problem. She was very responsive and available. There was a switch in sites which worked out totally in my favor; I stayed in the best site with the best views on the property, #17. Christine was very understanding and accommodating of my lack of trailer skills (I flunked Trailer Back-up 101 and 102). And, it was great to have bathrooms (pit and outhouse) and potable water to fill my tank and hose down my trailer and car; the road to St. Elmo was a bit messy. It did rain; the storm winds were memorable and the mosquitos came out to party, so be prepared. Great place, great stay. Thank you, Christine!

Tent 3
Great option for a short stay
We set up 2 tents on site 3 during the first weekend of July 2024, we could see the Great Sand dunes from our site, and had a panoramic view of the Sangre de Christo range. The night sky was incredible. The porta potty was well maintained ; probably the cleanest of its kind I've ever utilized. The ground is very sandy, and we had a sagebrush (or similar) root puncture the bottom of our tent. We should have remembered our tarp. There is no shade, so an awning is a must in the afternoon sun. There were just a handful of other campers utilizing the campground. I think I misunderstood the description, and thought potable water was available to the campground at large, however we only saw spigots at a few of the RV sites, and had to make due with the water we brought with us, plus a re-stock at the nearby Dollar General. In summary- it was a great stay, just be sure to pack your ground tarp, an awning and plenty of water.

Tent 18
Awesome spot! We really enjoyed our time at site 18! It was definitely the most private and secluded spot, which is exactly what we wanted. Very clean, nice fire pit and having a dumpster on site was appreciated. We were closest to the county road but weren’t bothered by it one bit. Our dog does not like other dogs encroaching on our space and we had no issues with any other dogs and all campers seemed to be very respectful as well. We did however hear lots of coyotes each night which was incredible but unnerving to our dog, so just a heads up there! The star gazing at night and views of the mountains are absolutely unmatched.

Christine’s property is beautiful. The camp spots are spaced out enough but sound definitely carries in this valley. Thankfully campers followed Christine’s quiet time rules. Is he was friendly and when we mentioned that we couldn’t get a signal to let our sons know we arrived, she said we were welcome to sit on her porch and connect since our spot was too far away for a connection. The port-a-potty was also clean, didn’t smell, and Christine had anti-bacterial wipes and hand sanitizer in it. I appreciated the addition of the wipes because I could wipe the seat and feel more comfortable using it. We have T-Mobile and our service blinked out after leaving the highway so if you have the same, you might want to take pics of the route to her place just to keep you on track. Other than that, it’s easy to get to. All in all, a great place to be. We’d definitely stay again. Thanks Christine!

Beautiful view of mountains and stars. No shade as its shrubland, but there was a good deal of privacy between campsites. You could still hear neighbors, but they didn’t feel too close.
