Bakers Akers is located in what used to be Nebblett New Mexico but is now Virden New Mexico. The one room Nebblett school house was located on this property. Virden was settled by the Mormons when they were ran out of old Mexico by Poncho Villa. Kit Carson took this route guiding General Kearney and the Army of the west to California during the Mexican American war. It is now being discussed that Coronado may have come through this area also. The farm was used for breeding and training race horses. It is now a cow/calf operation. Learn more about this land: Camp on the Gila River amongst the century old Cottonwoods and Mulberry trees, with Bermuda grass carpeting. Plenty of shade to pitch a tent or park under. Wildlife abounds with deer, beaver, turkeys, javelina, and a large variety of birds. Located on a eighty acre cattle ranch. Quiet with great views of stars at night and majestic mountains in the day. The camp grounds are located beyond the cattle pastures and next to the Gila River. Fire pits available and plenty of wood to gather for burning. Eleven miles from the historic town of a Duncan Arizona, filled with little markets, craft store, antique shop, rock shop, and home town restaurants, if any needs arise or an itch needs scratching. With prior notice and extra fees a New Mexican dutch-oven dinner and hayride can be included.

A great camp site 👍
Excellent host and a wonderful family. Bakers Makers is a must for your camping adventure. Beautiful area and a river where you could drop in a trout line as well.

The landscape here was incredibly beautiful and the hosts were very kind. They had free ice and water at the entrence which was a nice-to-have as well. I would highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for some peace and nature :)

The Bottoms on The Gila
Private spot down by the river
This was a nice place to camp for two nights. Set amongst large cottonwood trees, the Gila River is just a short walk away. We had dogs and kids and it was the perfect place to just hang out and play. We towed a 20' trailer in--tight fit through some farm gates but no issue when taking it slow. Thanks to Jesse and family for making it available!

The Bottoms on The Gila
Camp here! My wife and I had another site fall through and Jesse had us set up within 2 hours. This is an incredibly private site, it's just you and whoever you're camping with. It's also a wonderful location for astrophotography. We hope to have the chance to stay again.

They are very generous. They gave us endless amounts of firewood and full access to the creek.
