About this space

Reconnect with nature at our 1670 acre ranch. The unique terrain has several mesas, meadows, and forests. Enjoy magnificent views. The Mora River flows through our property for 2 miles. We are completely off-grid, so the star gazing is world class. This land is home to lots of elk, deer, bears, mountain lions, turkeys, and mountain goats. Explore the old ruins, canyons, and cliffs. Swim/fish in the river. Visit our farm animals. Bring your bikes or rent one of ours! Horseback riding available.

The space

Your lovely campsite comes with plenty of room for you to relax and explore. You will be free to roam and wander on the entire 1670 acres, including fishing or floating in the river. We ask that no more than 6 people per safari tent. Your site has a heavy-duty metal fire ring and swivel grate for grilling. A picnic table is provided. The ranch is off grid, so it gets very dark at night. Flashlights and other lanterns are strongly encouraged. There is a porta-potty and an outdoor, gravity shower at the main basecamp.

You will have access to the entire ranch. You are encouraged to bring mountain bikes or you can rent one of ours. We also have a few groceries available, such as charcoal, snack foods, drinks, etc. The nearest gas station is 45 minutes away. Please check in before sunset because the roads leading to the property are very dark and isolated. Cell service is intermittent. The county road is also made of loose gravel, so driving your nicest car is not recommended, unless you're ok with possible dents, cracks, or paint chips.

One of our primary missions is to keep this land as undisturbed as possible; therefore, we are a TRASH FREE campsite. So whatever trash you bring in, you MUST takeout with you. Otherwise, you will be charged a $50 fee.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire property. Please stay on or near trails. Be careful of cliff edges. Watch out for rattlesnakes.

Other things to note

Our land is wild and primitive. Please be wary of the wildlife. They were here first. Thick heavy boots are encouraged due to cactus.

Please check-in before nightfall as the county road is dark. Cell service is spotty and unreliable

    This was a very cool experience for my family, we arrived to a really pretty camping site, water set up for drinking, hand washing, gravity shower and we had other personal touches in the tent. My bed was very comfortable! She had chairs for us and an extra table with the picnic table.
    The kids got a kick out of the tent, it's so beautiful, and they loved the 1 wk old twin baby goats. WE SAW A UFO. we all saw something anyway... my boys gained some confidence when they made it through some of the hikes, which is the coolest part. There are amazing hikes and views from this campsite! And even more as you ride around atvs or jeep! We saw lots of wildlife.
    Erica is a perfect host, she and her husband are so cool, we want to go back and can't wait to see what is to come out there.
