Tent Camping 2
We loved staying at Healing on the Rio Grande! The hosts were super welcoming and gave us a tour of the property. Campsites are scattered throughout their luscious gardens that make for a wilderness in the city feeling. They have a ton of chairs and tables for use, and their bathroom is very clean. It's quiet and in a safe area in the city that's close to parks and restaurants. We are staying here again in a couple of days and looking forward to it!

Urban Permaculture Gardens
There was some miscommunication with other campers and our site was taken while we were out for the evening and returning at 11:30 PM. We ended up not spending the night as our truck camper did not fit into another one of their sites. The host was very apologetic and responsive to refunding our booking. Their place looks good otherwise.
