An absolute must-have experience!
Heads up: I am going to write a novel of good things about our host Shasta and her beautiful family.
First off, she has six adorable kids and a wonderful husband who all greeted me at the gate and immediately wanted to help me unload all of my stuff. The help was very appreciated. I’ve been traveling alone for six days cross-country with my 14.5 year old pug so to say I’m exhausted is an understatement. They went straight to work! Their eldest son, Orion, was my right-hand man, but all of the kids wanted to help carry something. I was so impressed!
The set up is like this: you arrive at the gate and there’s a house where the host family lives to your right. You park up front and carry your stuff back (they have wagons and wheelbarrows and six sets of hands!). On your way back to the camp site you pass their farm, with goats, MINI GOATS (!!!), sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks, two dogs, four puppies, one cat, and two furry pigs! Some are fenced in their pens, but others roam free and it is so very entertaining. Part of my favorite experience was seeing all the animals living happily. Amenities include their bathroom and shower, which are available inside the house. Everything is a short distance from each other. I even got coffee the following morning.
We set up shop in the back underneath the trees, but my tent was too big for the space (I have a huge six person tent), so I moved up toward the house and camped in an open grassy area. There was another family of three that were camped back in the trees and fit just fine with their four person tent so it’s very doable and comfortable. There’s a communal fire pit provided with Adirondack chairs in the woods big enough for a whole crowd. We hung out together and shared stories and got to know each other.
Quick side story: I got in a little late, around 5:30-6 so I was limited on time before the sun set. I had an incident where I poked my finger on a thick thorn, which halted my camp set up, and the entire family rushed to my aid. The kids carried my stuff back out of the woods and into the grassy area, Shasta’s husband administered first aid, and Shasta fed me delicious enchiladas because it was getting late and I was starving. All in all, you are FAMILY here. I can’t say enough good things, I could go on! I would stay here again if I pass through NM. I highly recommend!
5 star hospitality
Shasta, Rick, their incredible family, and brigade of farm animals were the highlight of our ABQ hot air balloon festival. They were warm, gracious and always willing to help. We spent the evening chatting around their fire pit enjoying the purple mountain sun sets. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Fun and safe homesteading family!
Highly recommend staying with Shasta and her family!!! This was my first Hipcamp experience, and I was traveling solo across the country. Staying here made me feel so safe and taken care of. The animals were so fun and their family so friendly! They have an eclectic, sustainably-minded little homestead: such an inspiration! We hung out around the campfire in the evening and drank coffee in the morning. They really opened up their home to me, and I will absolutely be staying with them again the next time I travel through New Mexico!
Camping on a farm, secluded under bushes. We had a great night and the kids loved the goats, cats, chickens, and pigs. Shasta and her husband made us feel like part of the family while leaving us space where we needed it and taking all the COVID precautions seriously. Highly recommended for families with kids or if you just want to stay at a secluded shady place. We would definitely come back.
What a cool surprise!
What great host!! This is a little mini farm with all kinds of animals, the cutest raised garden area and a pretty patio with a fire pit. Shasta, Rick and adorable kids were a big help and extremely friendly. The camp site is very secluded and covered with trees in the back. Nice clean shower and bathroom too. We felt very safe and welcomed! This was a pleasant surprise for our first ever stay with HipCamp.
Pleasant, comfortable, charming — this family farm deserves a magazine write-up for being a refreshingly welcoming experience of a Southwest American homestead. The location is lovely, and the 6 children are impressively respectful. I highly recommend, and will be returning myself. (If you’re there on a Summer holiday, you might get homemade ice cream...!)
An enjoyable stay and environment
Found this to be an enjoyable place to stay the night. As other reviews indicate, the hospitality here was incredible. This site is located on a small farm so the associated sites, smells, and sounds are accompanied. I personally enjoy that aesthetic and did not mind it one bit. My group and I were most grateful to be able to access their shower. The area where tents can be set up is located in a nice cozy underbrush of trees that keeps the morning sun from instantly heating up the tent.
Shasta was an extremely kind woman. She was very welcoming and even more understanding when we were not able to stay as planned. There was a ground covering plant in the area we were to set up our tent that one of our party members had an allergic reaction to. Shasta was very quick to process our refund. While, again, she was very very kind, the backyard of her house was not quite what I was expecting based on the "campsite" description on the site. Not a negative experience in comparison to our previous night at a different campground, but not at all what we were expecting.
Oh my goodness, Shasta and her family are some of the kindest people I've ever met. She made me feel SO welcome and I had so much fun with the kids when they showed me around in the morning. It was the perfect mix of getting some privacy and time to relax after a long drive, but also getting to experience a really unique place with some wonderful people.
