This charming land has been in the family since my husband was a young boy. The Indian ruins and artifacts fascinated him then and he is still happy to share this history with whoever shows an interest. With all the improvements made by his father and family through the years, you will also learn to have a love for the history and beauty here on this unique 30-acre treasure.  You can explore Native American ruins that were inhabited by some 2,000 people between 700-1100 AD. The grounds are wonderful to walk with a little lake which draws elk, deer, hawks, blue herons, etc. Easy to access just 3 minutes off I-25. We are 5 minutes away from the Pecos Natl Monument and 15 minutes away from the Pecos River with plenty of great fishing spots…Visit Santa Fe (20-minute drive) or Las Vegas (30-minute drive) with dozens of restaurants, museums, art galleries, etc. We look forward to your stay!

Agua de Vida’s serene, beautiful, and timeless landscape is well-designed and maintained to provide a variety of camp sites to fit all needs. The Upper Edge site was perfect for our Aliner travel trailer in terms of privacy, quiet, ease, WIFI, and having water and electrical hook-ups. We loved taking our dog on the walking trail to see the little lake and to greet peacocks, chickens, and ducks. As someone who has a life-long interest in archaeology, I’m still amazed that our camp was just up the hill from the mostly unexcavated ruins of what would have been a very large, thriving Pueblo community over a thousand years ago. I’m so impressed that our hosts have protected this historic treasure while also generously sharing it with their guests. Brenda is a terrific host who makes communications and directions a breeze. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Five stars!

Beautiful land. When I arrived in the evening, I saw a group of elk, a sweet kitty came to say hi, ducks came by in the morning and dragonflies. Peaceful mornings and starry nights. Heard a group of coyotes in the early morning. It is close to highway yet is a sweet tucked away oasis.

Very nice property with water and trails. The grounds were very nicely kept and Brenda was super nice. I look forward to coming back sometime.

This is such a peaceful location. My husband and I camped during the week, so we had the pond to ourselves (well, along with the birds and the sweet dog). We spent the afternoon reading in the shade of the willow trees and then the evening gazing at the stars. Outstanding tent camping site!

We loved camping at the Overview! Brenda was welcoming and helpful. The land has a cute pond with rowboat and bullfrogs, a menagerie full of farm birds, and ruins nearby to explore. Nestled in the beatiful mountains and a quick 30 minute drive to Santa Fe. Great spot!
