My name is Star Ford, and together with a group of other autistic people, I’m building an autistic workplace called Ocate Cliffs. Instead of a model that aims to integrate autistic people into the workplace by forcing us into behaviors that are unnatural for us, we’re building a workplace and community where autistic people can be themselves and use their strengths. We’re building a wilderness retreat in beautiful northern New Mexico that will be financially self-sufficient by offering retreats for groups of 20 to 60 in comfortable, environmentally sustainable lodges. And all of the staff will be autistic. It is currently open for camping, and can be rented out by groups such as churches, other non-profits, and family reunions. We are located near Ocate, New Mexico in the Sangre de Cristo mountains.

Rustic Retreat in Mountain Paradise
A peaceful, unplugged weekend in a gorgeous pine forest atop a mesa in Northern New Mexico. Star was a gracious and personable host. We enjoyed hiking a few miles of relaxing yet challenging hiking trails, stunning views of the cliffs, and breathing in clean mountain air at 9,270ft elevation.

I learned from this reservation that it’s a good idea to always ask the host about the possibility of a locked gate. Can’t comment on a stay as we were unable to complete the stay due to a unmentioned locked gate. Helpful tip if this happens to you… honk, I guess you’re very close. Star was helpful in refunding our stay. Hope you all have better luck. Travel safe,

Want to go back!
Star was a wonderful host, very responsive and accessible when we needed to verify directions and she was very welcoming once we arrived. Ocate Cliffs is remote without being a primitive site. Outlooks of the cliffs are a short hike away through beautiful forest. It was a rainy weekend, and we can’t wait to go back during better weather.

Ocate Cliffs
It was pleasingly relaxing.
We enjoyed the peacefulness of this site as we were able to rest from a long drive as well as acclimate to the high altitude. The hiking trails are pleasant and a great way to warm up to hiking at a high altitude. They offer great views of the cliffs and region below. We appreciated having a solar shower area to use that kept you in touch with nature. There was plenty of potable water available for cooking and cleaning up. The host/Star is friendly and makes herself easy to find if you have questions to ask her.
