22 acres once owned by International sculptor Lincoln Fox, and built by Mr. Wooten in the early 1900's as an apple orchard, Old Moon Acres is now home to North Fork Tipi Haven & camping.  The North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River, encompassing Crawford, Hotchkiss and Paonia, was an important fruit orchard area in the late 1800's and well into the early 1900's. The valley's climate is a banana belt, perfect for fruit with the cold air coming down from the mountains at night and the heat from the mesas warming up the valley during the day. Coal mines up the road in Bowie and Somerset paid better, so many of the orchards languished over the years. Since the closing of all the mines but one, today the NFV is home to the largest concentration of organic farms in the state of Colorado as well as becoming a state Creative District serving the multitudes of artist and creatives that call the valley home.  There are many pick-your-own peaches, cherries, apples, pears, nectarines and if we are lucky, apricots, in the valley. Delicious Orchards, 1 mile down Hwy 133, is an excellent place to pick your own, drink local hard cider and listen to live music on the weekend over a wonderful brunch. It is all about the farms, cattle, art, music, outdoor adventure, fun and relaxation here in the North Fork Valley. The tipis are custom made by the Colorado Yurt Company in Montrose, Colorado where they have been making yurts, tents and tipis since 1976. The tipis are expertly designed and made with custom paintings invoking the animal spirits that inhabit our land. These are a Sioux design tipi as the Ute's mainly lived in wiki-ups until they were introduced to the tipi in the 1800's. The Ute's appropriated the tipi design from the Sioux or Plains Natives. We have solar showers (solar bags of water heated by the sun during the day) available for free.  Showers are also available at the local laundromat in Hotchkiss. Our goal is to awaken your sense of wonder by sleeping out in nature and waking up to the Colorado blue sky in clean, clear air at 5500 ft. You can visit the many high altitude wineries, fruit orchards, organic farms, farm-to-table restaurants, great music, interesting movies at the community owned Paradise Theater, art at the Creamery Arts Center in Hotchkiss, stand-up paddle boarding, WSSUP, at Crawford reservoir, mountain biking in Grand Mesa, hiking in the West Elks, rafting down the Gunnison river in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, fishing up canyon in the coolness of the forest or relaxing in one of many hot springs within an hour of us.                      Colorado Detours is highly recommended by us to take you and yours on a hiking, farm, wine geology tour of the area. Aspen, Crested Butte (over Kebler Pass), Glenwood Springs, Gunnison, Ouray, Grand Junction, Ridgeway and Telluride all are about an hour or two away by car. Welcome to Colorado.

Clean, beautiful scenery. Tipi, kitchen, and property as listed. Much road noise and train whistles during the night. Of course not hosts fault, but if you're a light sleeper, this may be an issue.

Our tipi was ready and waiting for us. It was spacious for our family of four and dog. The field in front of our tipi was perfect for viewing the nighttime Sky. The location is convenient to the town of Paonia and near all the local vineyards. We had a great time! Thanks for a great stay. We’ll be back!

Fun Tipi adventure w amazing views!
My husband, 15 year old son and I loved this place. We loved our tipi. Enough room for 3 people. Both men are over 6 feet. The view was amazing. Cooking area was perfect. And bathrooms were clean as far as a portapotty goes. Paonia very close for a day trip to vineyards and orchards and live music. Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park was also an amazing day trip. I definitely recommend Tipi Haven.

Perfect peach picking weekend
The property is beautiful, and Stacy was such a lovely host. We had the yurt and because it was in the upper 90's, was extremely hot and stuffy inside. There is electrical outlet in the yurt, so Stacy gave us two nice fans, and we brought an electric strip plus our own fan which helped a lot. It cooled down during the night and was beautiful in the morning. There was a nice deep firepit and we bought firewood at Big B's down the street. The teepees have the best views by far, but the yurt is nestled back in by itself for more privacy. The communal outdoor kitchen was awesome, with a BBQ grill and separate gas burner grill for pots. plus water and large table to eat. All under a nice canopy of trees and right next to a stream. Great set-up. Stacy has a outdoor shower stall set up and there were 3 or 4 solar water pouches always full and available for use. No restrooms or running water, but two porta potties on the property. Was a great place to unwind, and the stars were spectacular at night. A little bit of road noise from the yurt which was closer to the main house and road, but didn't bother us. We were in Hotchkiss to pick peaches, but we also visited Western Culture goat cheese farm in Paonia and bought yummy cheese for happy hour back at camp. Root and Vine market has "to die for" blueberry pie and Azura cellars is a must stop just for the view alone. We topped it off with a visit to the Rock Store and had a great chat with the super friendly owner.

Fun, unique camping experience. Property is well located for exploring the area. One note: Tipis are not like tents. They don't have netting to keep bugs out, so make sure you bring bug spray!

It puts the “Hip” in Hip Camping
I not only would recommend it but I intend to go back and collect all of my girlfriends and reserve the whole compound. I don't want to say too many nice things because I don’t want so many people to go I can’t get reservations. The teepees are adorable. The mattress is very comfortable, the grounds are stunning, the picnic table by the creek is charming, the views are spectacular. I LOVED IT! I will be back at least two more times.

We had a great time at Stacy's Tipi Haven! So much easier than camping-glamping in a tipi is the way to go! Stacy was an awesome host! She gave us great recommendations on a lake trail and where we could get a bite to eat. Loved the solar shower that was provided. She has electricity available at the camp sites, and the outdoor kitchen was great!

This was a great experience as staying in a tipi was on the bucket list. The property itself was quiet yet close to fun local things like wineries and dinner with live music etc. Stacy was a great hostess and I would like to come back with the kids as this was a kidless trip.

HAWK tipi
Beautiful place, clean. Had a great time other than we had the hawk and it was so far from the Porta potties and parking we weren't prepared for that, it took 5 trips from parking lot to tipi with a heavy metal cart stuffed with all our stuff. We were exhausted by the time we got everything to the tipi! And the bathroom trip in the middle of the night wakes you completely up from the 213 steps to the Porta potty. So if they were to move the Porta potties and at least let you drive your vehicle to unload and load I would definitely come again. The owner is very nice.

Very peaceful and relaxing
Stacy was a wonderful host and her property is incredible. Very relaxing and having a communal kitchen, compost toilets, and solar showers were great amenities. I would love to revisit this Tipi Haven in the future.

Wonderful Tipi Glamping Experience
These tipis are great! This was by far one of the best ‘Glamping’ experiences we have had! Everything we needed was available! The kitchen area and supplies were perfect! The tipis were spacious and well thought out. We will definitely be returning!

Magical! we had the whole sweet meadow to ourselves and only wished that we had more time to stay. Dog heaven, rolling in the clover and running in the hills. Charming outdoor kitchen area by the stream and we loved sleeping in the tipi - great mattresses. Stacey, thanks so much for all your thoughtful touches. pamela

My friend and I stayed in the Sun Tipi for 2 nights. We had a fun time and were very thankful for the bed, outdoor showers, fire wood, and drinking water. Heads up - you will hear the road from your tipi but it's still a relaxing getaway.

It was our 4th time visiting the Hawk tipi. As always, a fantastic experience! Stacy personally came down to make sure we had everything we needed and that our stay was enjoyable. The site is always wonderful! Seeing the Milky Way Galaxy right outside of the tipi while making smores is my favorite! Highly recommend this site to everyone that would like a unique camping experience at a quality site.

Our stay at the Sun Tipi was a really great alternative and upgrade to camping! The tipi never got too hot but would recommend warm sleeping bag and blankets for the colder Colorado nights. The porto potties were some of the cleanest I've ever seen! Making coffee on the stove by a bubbling creek was picturesque.

Clearest sky of stars ever
What an amazing spot in underrated part of Colorado. The teepees and setup is amazing. Couldn’t have been more impressed. Stacey was great and came out to make sure everything checking in went well! The stars were some of the best I’ve ever experienced and it was just as fun exploring the areas close by. Highly recommend!

Friendly people, adorable property
Amazing hospitality! Quiet farm land with plenty of space between us and the other Tipi’s on the property. Two full size beds, bring your own blankets and pillows! Saw lots of wild life out here. Bats, hawks, and even an owl flew just a few feet above our heads. There’s a little creek with picnic tables and drinkable water jugs, pots, pans etc on the side of the land. Shower room with poured concrete pads made for easy washing up with their solar shower bags. Lots of space for our dog and cat that come camping with us. Stacy and her husband were so nice and friendly. Will definitely make another visit when we come back to the Colorado mountains!
