Kit Carson took this route guiding General Kearney and the Army of the west to California during the Mexican American war.

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.

We loved our night at The Bottoms. It was so quiet and private. The family was so welcoming and escorted us down to our private spot.beautiful sunset, lovely concert of birds singing.they offered water and ice and there was a very adequate Port-a-potty just a short walk away. Our dog was so happy to run free.

Jesse’s ranch is so cool! You’ll be one with the cattle. There are beautiful shade trees snd plenty of space to make your camp. We came with our dog and she loved the easy run around. You can hear the coyote and have privacy on the back of Jesse’s land. Jesse was welcoming and we enjoyed a great chat before departing. We recommend this place!

Quick stop area where it is needed!
Jesse was very gracious and accepted our request at the very last minute! We were passing through the area and needed a place. Cool location with trees, lots of wood for a great fire. Farm road passage which was a little tight but away from the farm. Could use a table.
