We stayed a night on both sides of our trip. Very nice and quiet and a great view of the sunset. Nice trail to take the dog for a walk. Clean campground and just what we needed for a recharge for the drive to our destination.

Such a cool little place! Tent camped in unit #4 and had a nice sandy spot in a bit of shade to set up to watch the stars! Sunset and sunrise were delightful! Porta-potty was nice and clean, too! Would definitely recommend!

Great place to stay for a couple of nights. Beautiful surroundings with the bonus of the ruins and the natural bridge in the creek bed up the road. However, the address given for the campground does not match the road signage on the highway! Could not find a sign that read “Ruins Road”! We found it using google maps to pin point where to turn. The road sign was “600 s. (Hope I’m remembering the correctly).
Penny was very helpful/accom when I screwed up my campsite number.
We would definitely return to this site agin on future trips.

Exactly as described!! 😊 Plus welcoming hosts that stopped to chat, informative board near the entrance with info on the local area, and a great hike directly from the campground (be prepared to get a little lost, but easy enough to figure it out). We did go to the local pool ($4, and outdoor shower) to cool off and shower.

Small, beautiful, well-maintained campground. Suitable for tents, campervans, or RVs with no hookups. Picnic table at each site. Port-o-potty on site. Trails. Just down the road there are two sites to see on the other side of the canyon: a small natural bridge and a pueblo cave dwelling. It was really cool. We were there in late May and had the place to ourselves.

Beautiful, well-maintained little campground near off-the-beaten-path natural bridge and pueblo viewing sites. We had the entire place to ourselves. Absolutely stunning.

This was the perfect camp site. I would absolutely stay here again! It is easy to locate and well-maintained. Not to mention beautiful. We had some car troubles on the way, which caused us to delay our trip by a day. Stacy and Penny seamlessly and graciously allowed us to modify our trip with no penalty and we are so thankful! It is exactly as advertised, and it's true that anything you could need is two minutes down the road. This campsite is a true gem.
