We loved camping on this beautiful, dog friendly land. Carl was a great laid back host. Would gladly return if we’re in the area in the future.

I loved getting to stay on this property. It was the most serene experience waking up to the sunrise peeking in through my tent with the view of the mountains. It's a great spot if you'd rather have a lookout of the landscape. It's perfect for dogs, too. My pups were off leash and got to play with their dogs. We all had a blast.

Friends arrived right at sunset, we got to enjoy a glass of wine together.This was the view of the trail as we were hiking down to Manby Hot Springs.We arrived at our Hipcamp with the cutest welcome sign from the host which made us know we were in the right spot!The walk through the field to the campsite is quite dreamy.

We had a great night's sleep at Hondo Fields. Woke up to a beautiful view after a comfortable night's rest. We didn't have a chance to meet Carl or use any of the amenities but the visit gave us what we needed which was a place to pitch our tent outside of Taos for a night.

Cell service was a bit tricky for us so we had some nerves before finding our destination -- on the map the road you need to turn onto shows up as B006 rather than the name given/actually on the road sign. But we made it and it was all good!

Lots to check out in the area for outdoor recreation and close enough to Taos to pop in and out for in-town activities.
