The property sits across from the original homestead of the valley and is fed by the same spring that the settlers of the homestead once used. Today we split the spring between us and our two neighbors. The house on the property was custom built in the 60's for a woman after her last two houses burned down! It's made of a combination of stone and wood but it is unique in that it is a round house with a flat membrane roof. Since we purchased the property in November of 2019 we have added donkeys, pigs, ducks, rabbits, chicken, quail, honey bees, goats, llamas, and a cat. We are constantly working on improving the property and may have a few projects in progress.

LLama drama
My wife and I had fun staying at Kathleen's camp. We did meet and petted the animals the following day around 10 am. You can also buy chicken and quail eggs from the owners. The night sky was full of stars but it did get very cold, so prepare accordingly. We also learned about burro/donkey racing! I HIGHLY recommend getting there before the sunset as there is no obvious sign where to turn into the driveway. Memorize or download the photo of the front gate. There is no cellphone reception. It was a good place to stay for us for 1 night. The electricity at the campsite was not working but they are planning to fix it soon. Any car can make it into the driveway, no need for 4x4 or high clearance.

Directions were very clear, and it was nice to say hi to all the animals in the morning. It’s definitely got a lot of traffic noise but it came in waves, so there were periods of total quiet, and at night it died down considerably. A beautiful private spot to camp for the night.

Ms. Kathleen has a nice place, and was a hospitable and accommodating host. We especially loved the "Guest Services Welcoming Committee"!! (Lamas) They came right up to greet us upon arrival and were kind of like, "Hey. Sup?" LOL!!! Ms. Kathleen has done a lot to make the site(s) functional and accommodating for guests. We would stay here again if in the area.

We loved camping here! The directions were very clear. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the llamas. The animals were a huge treat. The camp site itself was stunning. Highly recommend!

Camping with animals!
It was a unique experience for sure! The animals are very friendly, the land is great, and the scenery is amazing! Pretty close to Glenwood Springs, too, so it made for an ideal spot.

Best camp near rifle!
We absolutely loved camping on the ranch. There are some rock formations that the owner allowed us to explore. The camp is gated which makes for a really safe experience. My friends and I loved the llamas roaming free. When we were climbing up the formation the llamas watched us! There's a barn cat and chickens that roam as well. There are donkeys and pigs that you can ask the host to show you, and you're even allowed to pet the donkeys! Overall we had a great time camping here. I would recommend camping here.
