Near Silver City, New Mexico, the Historic Lyons & Campbell ranch is in the tiny village of Gila in the lush Gila river valley in the otherwise arid Mountain Southwest. Dog Friendly, This massive 60 room adobe compound dates from 1810, is one of the oldest houses in the southwest and was a million acre ranch, the second largest in America back in its heyday from 1880 to 1920, and includes a museum, theater, Old west Saloon, Chapel, jail and two apartments "Inn at the L.C. Ranch" in Gila, NM, available for short term rental on a!#bnb.

Hook ups include sewer and water connections, and access to the swimming pool, Hot tub, Old west Saloon and Gallery.  Two night minimum.

 The swimming pool is located next to RV Site #1.  It will handle any size rig, 65'+, Big fifth wheels, Class A or C Motorhomes, no problem, back-in, has a little shade, but for now has only 30 amp temporary power.  We will be upgrading this to 50/30 amp soon. 

  The other two RV spots are a short walk away, about 150 feet.  Site #2 is good for up to 50 feet, pull in, perfect for any size Motorhome, 50/30 amp. It also has its own shaded picnic area. 

  Site #3 is 50/30 amp, back-in, 65'+, has a total tree canopy for shade but limited overhead clearance, about 12', Class A Motorhomes and big fifth wheels aren't going to fit. 

The Mimbres design hot tub is located in the bath house between the two RV locations.    There is also an outdoor shower and a bathroom with flush toilet at the pool, along with fridge, BBQ, Wood fired pizza oven, misters and bar in the Lanai, and a guest laundry with an indoor shower. Karaoke at night in the old west Saloon is a regular occurance on weekends. The Saloon as well as the entire property is BYOB. Wi-fi is currently unavailable at the RV sites, but is available elsewhere on the ranch, best in the Gallery.  We are working on getting a Wi-Fi extender.  Cell phone service is sketchy, some people with Verizon get service.   Discounts for longer stays...
