Beautiful and peaceful campsite!
A great spot!! Traveled across country and this was the perfect campsite to stop and rest along the way. It was away from the main highway but not far. Felt very safe and secure! Peaceful nights and mornings. Jeanie was very helpful and kind. Will definitely stop here again when passing through Albuquerque.
It’s great, but the streetlight…
The host was very accommodating and was easy to communicate with. The site is easy to find and is tucked behind the owners property. It has a great fire pit and horseshoe area as well as a tent platform. Yes, you can see stars. Yes it’s remote, but there is a bit of highway noise to deal with. The worst part, however, is the very bright streetlight that is on all night. Unless you can blackout your sleeping arrangements, it will wake you up.

Visited going and coming…….
Their place is so neat and clean. They have put in a lot of extra work to make campers feel welcome with a lot of nice amenities.
We love the dog coming out to welcome us.

Beautiful, quiet location with plenty of space and seating for a large group (though we were only 2). The wooden platform kept us a decent amount warmer in our tent.
Hosts graciously provide quality firewood. We did not utilize the horseshoes, grill, or any other amenities besides the fire pit but this is probably a really fun spot if you have more time to hang out.

Jeanie’s property is absolutely immaculate!
Host was exceptionally friendly and especially the Doggo.
Would be fun to have three RV’s/ families around the huge fire pit.
This place is probably the epitome of Hipcamp it is awesome!

The Stargazer Ranch was a wonderful overnight stop on my fall roadtrip to the Southwest. I arrived after dark, but was able to easily find the ranch and campsite with the excellent directions. Thankfully, I also had cell service at the site. When the sun rose the next morning I was disappointed I needed to pack up and keep moving on my trip. The site is beautiful. There is a wooden tent pad with corner tie-downs, a fire pit and table conveniently located next to each other and plenty of parking.
Jeanie stopped by before I left and was so welcoming. She and her family have built a special place where people who love the area can enjoy it in a unique way. I'd highly recommend staying at the Stargazer Ranch and will be sure to stay on my next trip to the region.

Huge sky and beautiful views!
Cute little private space nestled among the piñon trees. Very convenient to travelers on I-40 as it is only a few miles off the highway and just 30 minutes from Albuquerque.

A really great stop along the interstate! Quiet, stars and that sunset and sunrise :)

Great Hidden Gem!
Friendly hosts and a beautiful secluded camp site! We booked the Stargazer Ranch last minute and we’re so glad we did! The sky at night was INCREDIBLE! You can see the Milky Way and it’s magic! We had our two pups with us and they loved the site too!

This is an amazing, really quiet and starkly desert beautiful place about 30 minutes west of Albuquerque. My wife, dog and I stayed there four nights, and found it to be a very peaceful, beautiful, and safe place to use as a homebase while exploring Albuquerque each day.

Great camping location about 20-30 minutes west of Albuquerque. The ranch is about 4 miles north of I40, which is the perfect distance, very minimal road noise and really quiet and serene. The hosts were friendly and greeted us when we arrived. We enjoyed the fire pit and the quiet. Would definitely use again!

Lovely, quiet spot
We had a beautiful stay at Star Gazer Ranch in our 19 foot camper. The space was great and we really enjoyed the huge fire pit and seeing the Milky Way overhead. Jeanie and Brian were wonderful hosts.

Jeanie & her husband were very welcoming. We slept well under starry skies in this peaceful spot.

Indeed a Stargazer retreat! There was a great view of the night sky. The Milky Way was very visible, even saw a shooting star.
The campsite was perfect, quiet, and safe. I wish we could’ve spent more time there but it was a quick stop through to sleep and continue on our journey west the next day. Grateful for Jeanie and opening up her space.

These hills dont have eyes
First impression on pulling up to the property was a "Hills Have Eyes" vibe. Kind of run down looking. Dont let that fool you. The host were super friendly with a sweet dog. The lack of amenities was no problem for me. Im travelling around the US in a 2009 Subaru Outback. Origination point being the Smoky Mountain area of east Tennessee. I am equipped with a Jackery 1000 w/ solar panels, Geyser portable hot water heater and Biolite stove. It was my first time desert camping. This property provided me with a safe place to put my gear and my knowledge to the test before i ventured further. The host were what really made it worth the stay. They even alerted me when moon rise and moon set occurred.

It was a beautiful property with a great sunrise, happened to be an almost full moon so didn’t see that many stars, but would have if that wasn’t the case. There was lots of space and great amenities.

Wonderful communication from host and easy to find campsite. Convenient for traveling as it was not very far off the interstate.

Jeanie was very nice to me and had wonderful hospitality! She had a great portion of land and allowed me to decide where exactly I wanted to camp on it! If I come through again I'll definitely stay here!

Communicating with the host was simple and smooth, and the camp area was easy to access and comfortable. There was plenty of wood available and I enjoyed staying warm by the fire for hours. Thank you !
