Pristine camping along a small creek. Flat area surrounded by mountains and cottonwoods. Hiking is along the acequia, across the creek or you can actually hike in the creek, as the water runs underground shortly past my property. There are also many places to hike west of my property along Rosa Castilla. Wild horses roam all over the BLM land and along the creek. Desert area, 6000" elevation, so very dry and must be excectionally careful about fires. Only in provided grills . There is abundant wood that you can use for free, but put all coals out and you can use the creek water, when it is there. REMEMBER this is the desert!! I would like to book a 3 month visit from January 1st-April 1st with free water. You need to provide your own electricity, but solar would be an excellent option as sites are on south facing, so panels would work well. I would like to trade a discount for help on the farm during this time. $5.00 a day disount, plus the water. You would be the only one booked during this time, so very quiet and private for long term winter stay!!

We didn’t stay very long but this was a nice spot outside of ABQ to spend a night. Easy to get to and not too hard to find. The stars were awesome too! We arrived well after dark and struggled a little to find a good spot to put the tent, but if you have some headlamps and walk around a minute or two, you’ll be alright.

Beautiful property in a very cool neighborhood outside Albuquerque. We enjoyed the many animal sounds at night and wild horses on the way to our campsite!

Pete the “unwild” horse (as host Juliet referred to him) met us at our car looking for carrots and was super friendly. Juliet was such an amazing host— offering coffee in the morning, which she really didn’t have to do. Her Akitas Austin and Hannah were so friendly— Austin hung out with us all night and watched over our site. Couldn’t have asked for a better camping companion. Juliet also has fresh chicken, goose & duck eggs available for sale— my camping companion and I fried some up in the morning and it made for the best, freshest, breakfast. Walking along the creek (though mostly dry) was stunning. Fire wood provided for the pit, and a grate on site made it super simple for us to cook. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a reason to stop off in Placitas. Sunset was absolutely stunning, and Romeo the rooster provided the perfect wake up for us to get moving in our morning. Wish we could have stayed longer, but it just gives us an excuse to go back again!
