Located on the Dolores river, this property is perfect for hikers, fishing, rafting, or just camping! There is a natural spring just a few miles from the location with drinking water as well. When you stay with me you are located right on the river with nothing but places to hike, climb and have fun and I have several options for you to choose from. There is a cabin, an onsite RV, a canvas tent, and BYO tent or RV camping on the land - you can pick whatever suits you best! No matter what, you can fall asleep to the sound of the river after a great night of star gazing! Nearby outdoor points of interest include the Dolores River on property, Hanging Flume which is approx. 20 miles from site, Gateway Canyons Resort Auto museum 7 miles from site, Arches National Park 2 hour drive from site, Colorado national monument 1 hour drive. The Grand Mesa 2 hour drive, Telluride ski resort 2 hour drive! You can find hiking, biking, swimming, paddle board, kayaks, rafting, fishing, tubing, bird watching, star gazing rock climbing, bouldering, all right from the property. All sites are accessible without 4wheel drive. I love where I live and think everyone should be able to experience the peaceful quiet beautiful environment that it is!

This was a beautiful area. It was extremely remote, so be prepared for no cell service. Jody was extremely helpful with a flat tire and it's repair. I would highly recommend staying at Jody's place!

Had the absolute most incredible experience at this campground.The views are phenomenal. Jody is such a peach! She made sure we were well equipped and comfortable during our entire stay. We were able to stay in one of her bell tents right next to the Dolores river surrounded by endless canyons. I hope to be able to stay here again! Thank you Jody ❤️

An evening with the stars
Jody's space is fantastic. We fully enjoyed the seclusion, views, sunsets and stargazing. Her place is fantastic and we hope to be able to visit again.

Hidden gem in Gateway!
Jody’s land is exquisite! Highway 141 is a “not to be missed” drive. When I first drove passed Jody’s land, I was secretly hoping that would be the site. Her property is perfect. Private. Well equipped with a cute cabin or several tent sites to stay in that are far apart. I was the only one there. The highway next to the site is rarely traveled. No cars / trucks passed after 9pm. The canyon walls to watch both the sunset and sunrise and sublime. Magical moments of peacefulness and light. Then that stars came out. Nothing around you for miles. Deep in a canyon. The sound of the Dolores River no more than 100 yards away. I can’t say enough good things about Jody’s property. Be warned - ZERO CELL SERVICE.

Beautiful property!
We loved the property, very stunning views! The river was a blast and we all loved getting covered in mud in it. My 4 yr old especially enjoyed it! The only thing we wish there would’ve been that we thought there would’ve due to the way it was advertised was an outdoor shower & also a water jug inside the structure. The water jug was empty as was the outdoor shower. That would’ve made it a lot more enjoyable to be able to take a quick minute rinse after playing in the muddy river and heat all day. The cabin itself does look like it needs a little bit of repairs done to it, but overall it’s such a nice property to relax at. Our dogs enjoyed hanging out there as well. The drives surrounding it are beautiful as well!

I loved tent camping on Jodi’s lane! The location was beautiful and the directions were clear. Jodi was very accommodating and brought me a shade as it was hot. I had a great time.

Canyon camping at its Best!
Jody's campsite was amazing and she is a fantastic host! She greeted us with the firewood and eggs and also made sure we got settled, answering any questions we had. Campsite was situated at the canyon floor, surrounded by 1,000ft.+ mesas. Each day, we woke up to spectacular views and fell asleep under the stars. There is a spring about 12 miles south where you can fill up on mountain fresh water as well. All in all, my wife and I were very happy with the trip and will be coming back for sure.

Surreal Camping Experience
I cannot even begin to explain how absolutely amazing this trip was. Everything. The directions to get to the site were so easy. Jody is an angel - she had everything ready for us. We had grates to cook over a fire, she brought us a grill, firewood and inner tubes! And even took our trash - what more could you ask for?!? We were lucky enough to secure a spot that was directly next to the water. Perfect weather to tube all day, the dogs had a great time. The natural spring well was a game changer. I honestly cannot wait to come back. I am sharing this with all of my friends because I feel like this is an experience everyone should have. Beautiful. Book asap!

Scorpion free camping!
Our host was excellent! She met us at camp, gave us local sites to see, was extremely accommodating to our family and hung out for a bit to get to know us and show us trails and nearby sites! The views were amazing. Camping under a blanket of stars.

Jody was very nice, we had a bit of trouble finding the place, but that was mainly because we did not have service and adequate directions. She does give you a marker on google maps to find the place so luckily we had that! The location is absolutely beautiful and I wish we could have had more time there!

This place was pure magic! There isn't a dull moment from sunrise to sunset to sunrise again. The colors change with the time of day and there were more stars than I've ever seen in my life. Jody was extremely friendly and accommodating. We want to come back just to stay here longer!

We did not end up staying at the site. The area was beautiful with the river and rock. However, the land seems to double as an open cattle range. It was a bit more exposed than expected and some of the site modifications were not yet finished. Jody tried to find us a replacement site, but we ended up moving on. She was very understanding.

This was my second time staying in her property and I'm ALWAYS impressed with her hospitality and willing make sure our stay is perfect. I had myself and five 17-18 boys with me to celebrate their graduation from high school. Jody is the best host you could have!

Great spot. Liked having the river so close and the trees gave plenty of shade during the day. We enjoyed lazy days with fishing, grilling, and camp fires. Already planning another trip back.

Camping with the dog
Was it a bit dusty/sandy for tent camping? Yes. Was the sunset akin to a religious experience? Yes. In short this was a 10/10 experience for my dog and I, starting with Jody’s amazing hospitality to the unique location of gateway. We saw tons of wildlife including different birds and what looked like a brown bear running across a ridge maybe 300 yards from the site. This was a primitive camp so I recommend bringing a shovel for digging cat holes or you could also make the short drive to gateway to use the bathrooms at the general store. I recommend getting the firewood, and to dig out the fire pit before/after use. I did find some trash at the site/when we hiked around including cigarette butts, empty beer cans, used tissues/wipes… so make sure you have something to pack out your trash and I’m sure Jody can provide you with something if you don’t have anything, which is a much better option than just littering at such a beautiful place. Regardless of that caveat, this is definitely the spot to camp at!

Great spot in a quiet canyon
This spot was wonderful! We had plenty of privacy and stayed right along the river. The dogs loved the spot and we loved the views. Make sure you check the reservation details before driving because you’ll lose service about an hour north. Even so, a night away from the phones was much needed.
