Susan and Dale (and their pets) were great hosts! Just enough mingling to get to know them but gave us our space to enjoy their property and camp spot. Learning about the Elk and Bison they have was an added bonus. Great place!

Sue and Dale are the sweetest and most thoughtful hosts! Not only is their property absolutely stunning, with some of the best mountain views, the hosts go above and beyond to make a stay at their ranch just perfect.
As mentioned in previous reviews, we got to visit and feed their beautiful elk and bison, and got to learn a little bit about their personalities. Dale and Sue are super funny hosts and it felt like they were old friends.
The swimming pond and surrounding setup (to include their great outdoor stereo system and musical taste) was wonderful. We didn’t get to take a dip, but it was extremely peaceful just hanging out.
We only visited one night as our original host was booked for 1 day we needed. They had tons of amenities, and made for an easy setup with our RV.
We came with our 2 pups and we all got to visit with Sue and Dale’s 2 beautiful pups - super sweet dogs!!
Don’t hesitate to stay here!!! You won’t regret it! No question we’d stay here again in a second!

Easily the best stop of our week-long trip. Since we were in a rented RV, we were making things up as we went along…Susan responded to questions immediately on HipCamp, which was good because we were searching in the afternoon for a place to stop that evening. Dale and Susan took time out of their evening at home to get us settled and showed us around despite our arrival just after dark. The next morning the view did not disappoint and neither did the animals, what a treat! If we had known we would have stayed multiple nights. My husband especially liked chatting it up with Dale after being cooped up with me and four teenage daughters for a week :) Highly recommend!!

Hosts are amazing and very welcoming. The area is beautiful and their extra ad ons are great. They helped the kids feed the elk and bison, swam in their pond and they got firewood for a night around the fire. Great place for a small get away.

This was an awesome experience! My girlfriend and I were able to book this the day of when we were heading into Albuquerque for the night. We were greeted immediately by the friendly hosts of the property, and after briefly setting up our site, we were given a fun tour of their home. We fed apples to the elk and bison out of our hand, the best part being face to face with the giant Buffalo Bill, the full grown bull that wasn’t skittish enough to come up to us. Afterwards we read by their pond and watched the catfish pluck their food from the surface. If the site wasn’t nice enough already, they even fed us some homemade wasabi meatloaf. 10/10 experience and would happily stay here again
