Mono Loco Flats sits on a mesa nestled in the Sangre de Cristo mountains near Sangre De Cristo creek and La Veta Pass. This Mesa is a perfect homebase to explore. Growing up in Southern Colorado I was fortunate to explore this zone as a kid and I feel so fortunate that I can share Mono Loco Flats with others. The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Zapata Falls are 25 minutes from Mono Loco Flats. Learn more about this land: Set up camp and enjoy sweeping views of Mount Blanca and the surrounding Sangre De Cristo mountain range.The 15 acre camp is situated just off highway 160 for easy access.

Blissful scenery
Beautiful spot that was easy to navigate to given Mario’s clear directions. Despite its proximity to the highway, it felt secluded and peaceful. It’s evident a lot of care went into carving out the spots in this unique landscape. Be prepared for wind! On our last night, out of seemingly nowhere, heavy gusts came through snapping one of our tent poles, making sure it was a camping trip we wouldn’t soon forget as two people and a dog slept in the back of our car. Despite the momentary chaos caused by Mother Nature, we’d be happy to come back!

This location and Mario’s timely communication were exceptional! The campsite and the night sky and sunrise views took our breath away. Location and the directions were perfect. So clean and peaceful. The campfire set up was wonderful.

Site 3 Blanca Vista
Great Launch point
Perfect location to come into the "Valley'. Google MAPS/GPS went right there. Dirt road fine for all cars. Tons of free BLM parking in the Valley but a great launch point! Owner very responsive.
