We have a 1.5 acre homestead, broken into a main property and an annex property. With the panoramic mountain views and no neighbors but us, you will feel that you are in the middle of nowhere, even though we are only 10 minutes from a big commercial area. The stars at night go on forever in one direction, and in the other shimmer the beautiful lights of the city of Albuquerq

We have a 1.5 acre homestead, broken into a main property and an annex property. With the panoramic mountain views and no neighbors but us, you will feel that you are in the middle of nowhere, even though we are only 10 minutes from a big commercial area. The stars at night go on forever in one direction, and in the other shimmer the beautiful lights of the city of Albuquerque.

These tent sites have available parking near or at the site. Site T4 is on our main property, near the animals. Sites T1, T2 and T3 are available on our annex property. At this time the annex property is not fenced, but it does offer more privacy than our main property. If you prefer to be on the main property, please let us know when you book.

Every site has it's own picnic table and fire pit. We provide an Eco-Friendly composting toilet and hand pump sink. These sites are appropriate for tents, car campers, car top tents or camper vans only, NOT for pop-up campers or trailers. If you have a pop-up camper or trailer, please consider reserving our RV site.

On our off grid homestead, you are welcome to visit with the chickens, ducks, turkeys and goats. In the surrounding area, you can take a desert nature walk full of cactus, birds and rabbits. With a 10 - 30 minute drive you can be at Petroglyph National Monument, Old Town Albuquerque and Coronado Historical Site.

Please note that we are on a dirt road off of a dirt road. These roads can sometimes be difficult for lower cars or some types of RVs.

Our stay in ABQ with Heidi was very nice. The camping area was small but safe and secure. The other guests were quiet and courteous during our evening. Despite our unfamiliarity with composting toilets, the facilities were clean, well kept, and not intimidating at all.

Heidi greeted us and showed us to our site and was more than accommodating. We were in and out for Fiesta, but our stay was very pleasant! Would recommend to any traveler!

Came in after hours when it was dark. They provided excellent directions that were easy to follow. Cute common area with yard games that we didn’t get to use but was nice that they were provided. Campsites were kind of close but everyone was quiet and respectful. Would stay there again!

We stayed here during the balloon fest hoping to catch a glimpse in the morning, which we did! The campsites are fairly close together and we had some loud neighbors, but it was easy to find and reach even in a low clearance vehicle.

Amazing hosts! We setup right next to the animals (goats, chickens, geese, ducks) and although they wake you up pretty early, we wanted the wake up call to watch the balloons ascend anyway. Got a half dozen chicken and duck eggs for breakfast. Definitely the place to stop in Albuquerque!

Heidi and her family were absolutely amazing! We had a long drive from our hometown to New Mexico and this homestead was perfect. Heidi is very friendly and the campsite is stunning. A perfect getaway for the weekend, can’t wait to come visit again!!

I have arrived in delay but the host supported me sincerely. This is great site and I recommend to everyone except for dog phobia.

Here are pros and cons:
Pros:
Great hospitality
Easy access to the west side of Albuquerque
Cute dogs(they welcomed me!!)
Super well organized primitive restroom
Optional service( I didn’t try due to late arrival but it looks attractive)

Cons
The site is sandy in nature so tent may get sands a lot. (you know the site is in the desert)
Dogs and maybe coyote howl at night and chicken wake up 4am. Earplug may help if you cannot tolerate animal sounds.

Hipcamper Trinity

Beautiful spot. nice folks.
