Site 6 - Star Dance High Desert Retreat
The space is absolutely breathtaking. This location sits on top of a beautiful red canyon. Site 6 is a drive up location, site 5 sits literally at the edge of the canyon and has a fantastic view. It’s so quiet you can hear the wind AND even hear the flapping of the flying birds. We saw hummingbirds here as well. There are showers, a kitchen, a yoga yurt, and lots of chairs. I am making this place an annual trip as it was truly life changing. Strong medicine here.

Camping and so much more.
My stay at Star Dance was an amazing experience and I can't wait to come back sometime soon. The kitchen was fantastic to have access to for meals, hot tea and storing food items. Bathrooms and showers were clean and beautifully kept... I love the open air Adobe shower with a view from the tiny little window. The land there is absolutely gorgeous. If you are wanting a place to feel far away from civilization without actually being that far- this is the place for you. Really close to the lake for swimming too! I found this booking sort of by accident - and ended up having the most incredible experience on my New Mexico spiritual journey. 🕊️

Amazing, beautiful, serene property. I had a tent site that was right near the canyon overlook. The facilities were pristine, including the kitchen and outdoor shower. The bathrooms were nicer than many hotels’. Next time I’ll bring supplies to grill outside as well. Everyone was helpful and kind, but peaceful and quiet as well. Really helpful directions provided to get to the gate on the private road.
