Great location - Nice Hosts
Had a great time with my family (wife and three teenagers) tent camping at Paw Paw’s. Fantastic campsite. Riverfront. Clean and well maintained. Lots of shade. Plenty of room to spread out. 5 minutes from Aztec ruins. Hosts are kind and welcoming. Split firewood for us when we arrived. Campsite includes table with chairs, fire ring and second cooking fire ring with grate, logs to sit on around the campfire, hammock, citronella candles and a port-a-potty. Safeway grocery and town of Aztec few miles away if you need anything. Visited mid-June. Lot of fun. Wonderful opportunity for family to connect and unplug. Played some competitive teatherball games. Brought cornhole and spikeball with us. River current was too strong to swim but we were able to put kayaks in the river at the campsite and paddle into town (2 takeout points- Aztec Ruins and Riverside Park) and we tied tubes to shore to float. Exploring the Aztec ruins was a great way to spend a morning.

I loved camping at this location. The river made this spot magical. It was calming and very peaceful. The host was so wonderfully welcoming. Amenities were provided and came in handy such as firewood and Citronella candles. The sounds of nature made the camping experience feel more in tune with nature. Almost feels like you’re in your own river bed to yourself. I highly recommend this place for myself in the future as well as others.

Perfect Quiet Retreat and Camp Spot
This is a perfect quiet setting with the camp site sitting right next to the Animas river. We had everything we needed for our travel trailer stay. The kids had fun paddling in a shallow part of the river and grandma and grandpa had some peaceful swings watching many birds and a friendly raccoon on the river’s edge. Just the quiet time we needed. We also visited the Aztec and Salmon ruins and enjoyed them also. Thanking our hosts again for their hospitality and grace. SGF

Paw Paws Tent or Camper Camping
Paw Paw's campsite is one of my favorite places to camp. It's a large, secluded site located right off the river with lots of clever amenities including a swing, big hammock, citronella tiki torches, two fire pits, clean porta potty, solar lights and a big pile of firewood. Lots of shade too. Our six year old had a blast!
