A landmark historic ranch, being brought back to life by our family who operates a holistic animal rescue and sanctuary, where hens, ducks, horses and a llama are loved like family. Once a lettuce and cattle farm, nestled below the towering 14er Mt. Princeton and Collegiate Peaks, the historic big barn and original bunkhouse boast a feel of nostalgia and the simple life.

Great location and host
Monika was very welcoming and shared a ton of information about the area, including hiking trails and other places of interest for us newbies to this part of Colorado. We enjoyed the solice of the field, feeding carrots to the horses, and walking through the farmyard to visit the (cleanest ever) porta potty) and buy our morning chicken and duck eggs. Since it is an open field, be sure to plan for some wind and chilly nights. Warm sleeping bags highly recommended. Buena Vista is a short drive away, so we it was easy to go in for a little shopping or a meal. Great experience overall!

We had a great time on Monkia's property. She was very welcoming and made the check-in process a breeze. In general, our stay at her ranch was great. Despite a strong breeze and not much tree cover, there was lots of level ground to set-up a tent and it was very quiet at night with a great view of the stars.

Wonderful Experience!!!!!
We had the most amazing time!!! Monika is a most gracious host. This is a perfect spot for families and we had so much fun meeting the animals and learning about the farm. We got eggs and honey and made family memories to last a lifetime! We are so grateful and recommend camping here to any families considering so. Thank you so much again Monika!!!!

Host was really helpful and interesting, explaining how/where she rescued her animals from. You are camping in a large field which can get windy, so bring a shade and mat/picnic blanket. Quick drive to town, but not a nice bike ride. The farm animals weren't wandering through the camping field, like I originally pictured. However, the host brought my family around on a tour to meet her rescue ducks, horses, bunny, llama, and chickens. My kids were able to hold a chicken. We also bought fresh eggs to cook up for breakfast. The nightly cost was more than I would usually feel comfortable for considering there is no water or electric hook ups, but the fees help support her rescue animal work, so it felt worth it.

Awesome Hipcamp, Beautiful Views, Clean Campsites, Delightful hosts, Eggs from hosts chickens! WOW is the the word we used when we pulled into this place outside of Buena Vista. We had several nights of rain but always woke up to clear skies and beautiful rescued horses with the mountains for a perfect background!! Monika & Tim were so helpful and accommodating. We even watched fireworks with them in their front yard!!! Best Hipcamp by far!!!!
