New to Hipcamp, but want to share my beautiful property with others. Located on the bank of the Rio Grande River with access to the river at all times. Property is rustic now, but improvements will continue to be made as time goes on. Come help me develop this beautiful location into the best Hipcamp in New Mexico. Just 14 miles of the Chile Capital of the World, Hatch, NM, come during chile harvest to take home fresh green chile right out of the field. 21 miles from Las Cruces, where you will find plenty of events and entertainment, should you so desire. Spaceport, America, T or C, White Sands are all within a day's drive, and Fort Selden is just a few miles down the road, as is Blue Moon Bar and Grill. My dad first came to this property as a farm hand for the elderly couple who owned it. This was in the 1930's. He met my mother, who lived 6 miles down the road, in 1939. She was just 14. Every Sunday he would ride those 6 miles to have supper with her and her family and in 1940, 2 weeks after her 16th birthday, they married. They traveled around before coming back here, buying a small portion of this farm from the elderly owners and farming the rest for them, but in 1953, the man died (his name was Ernest Ward) in the small concrete house I now use for storage, that my dad had built for he and his wife when he first came to work for them. My parents built a home for his widow in Hatch (14 miles) and bought the farm from her. My family has owned it since. I was gone for 31 years, but returned to the land and place I love and plan to stay here till I die!New to Hipcamp, but want to share my beautiful property with others.

Best Boondocking
If you enjoy being one with nature this is the place for you. The night's sky is truly incredible. My family (wife and 3 kids) love going to this place. My kids usually take advantage of the open field while I fish the rio The owner is always all smiles and very pleasant.

Carolyn was so kind and came down to give me tips for her property. The view of the mountains across the rio grande was beautiful! I would absolutely stay here again!

Perfect river camping spot!
We loved camping right next to the river! Carolyn was the most kind host and made sure we had a great time. It was windy during our stay but we were able to tuck away in a nice little sweet spot behind the trees which was perfect. And a lovely campfire to complete the night. I even heard the wild boars at night :) The area is spacious and there is a picnic table available for use as well. We will definitely be back to stay at Horner on our next trip through the area! Thanks Carolyn!! We appreciate your hospitality!
