Near Great Sand Dunes National Park
Within a 60-minute drive from the Great Sand Dunes.
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!

Every view is excellent
Excellent views surrounded on all sides by mountains. Flat, soft ground for tent camping. Wildlife sounds at night, farm sounds in the morning.

RV 1 shared hookups w/ RV 2
A good spot to explore the Great Sand Dunes. A lot of tent campers while we were there. A spacious RV area that had great stars at night. Only negative was the electric hookup would trip our surge protector but we have a great solar and lithium so it was not needed. For some reason we had no bug issues until the morning we left and then mosquitos were in full force. We loved the quiet and solitude of the location.
