Amazing but not much privacy.
Really nice place! Several houses around though, not very private! They have a bathroom and a tub which is really nice. This place was amazing! Just wanted a little more privacy.
So beautiful/glad our rig is small!
This is a great location, super nice hosts, beautiful spot! I mean BEAUTIFUL! we saw deer both nights - they just hang out snacking on the property.
Water & electric we're great. However, wifi spotty - had to go up to house area to use and it was limited. I would also hesitate to go back with a larger trailer. Ours is small: 17', travel trailer. The driveway is skinny & long, no where but uneven grass meadow to turn around. A big rig would be a challenge to get out without tipping it reversing all the way down the long drive.
We will definitely return with our little lady!
Pleasant stay near great hiking
Great, neighborhood camping with lots of deer roaming through near amazing hiking opportunities in the Lincoln National Forest. Aubrey was super friendly. We plan to stay again if we get back to the area.
We had a great stay. Our kids loved the rope swing and stream on the property. It was fun to wake up with deer walking around near the campsite. The bathroom was very clean. The property was quiet, peaceful, and well-kept. We would definitely stay there again.
We really enjoyed our weekend here. It was peaceful and we had plenty of space to ourselves. The bathroom was great. We tent camped and felt perfectly safe. The hosts were very friendly.
A blessing to find this spot!
Great spot to park if you’re visiting White Sands Nat Park! (35 min drive) It’s a beautiful scenic drive up the mountains. Have to hit The Old Apple Barn while you’re there for some fresh baked treats! Just a couple things to note: if you are tent camping, there is nowhere to pee (no woods anywhere), no water source, complete dry camping, we didn’t even know where to spit our toothpaste becuz it’s such a nice place and we didn’t want to just spit in their yard. Definitely best suited for self contained RVs (they did have electric hook up). But we were so grateful they allowed us to pitch our tent becuz we literally couldn’t find anywhere else to camp. The KOA is the only campground in the area...they are super expensive and were all booked. None of the RV parks in the area allow tents, so finding this spot was a huge blessing! (There’s not many camping options around White Sands). Also note: they charge a 2 night minimum, which we only needed one night, but the price was still cheaper than the KOA or RV parks.
For tent or smaller motorhome and RV the place is great. It will take some serious backing skills (if towing a trailer) to get you back down the driveway once you are there. I was given ample warning about this issue ahead of time (thank you Aubrey) and was able to devise my plan prior to my stay via Google Earth. It is a beautiful area tucked back in the hills and better than staying at a public campground as you have way more space to yourself.
Pristine and quiet
The property and campsite were pristine and beautiful. It was very quiet, you could hear the nearby creek that runs through the property and watch a few deer peacefully moving through the meadow below the campsite. Applebutter Farm is a very relaxing spot in the mountains.
