We absolutely loved this camp site! It was closer to the house than we had expected but it was no issue at all, I actually felt safer being closer to the house after meeting the hosts. Tom and Melissa were extremely welcoming and friendly. They even gave us stakes for our tent because the wind was picking up. We used the site for a quick stop on a road trip but it sounded and looked like there were some really awesome places to explore.

Perfect spot right off I-40. Great host family, very helpful and friendly. Took the kids on a morning walk to pick wildflowers and study fire ants. Very peaceful. We definitely plan to stay here again next time we’re in the area.

The site was actually better than expected. It is in a wonderful rural neighborhood with loads of space around. Super easy to get to, amazing views and super nice hosts. If there is a con it's that the gravel was a bit harsh but that is subjective. I highly recommend this site to anyone traveling through Grants/Gallup area for a nice respite. The hosts were great with local attractions etc. too.

This is our campsite showing the view. It was great!

This was our second time staying here and we’ll certainly be back again in the future. Fantastic location just a few minutes off I-40 and the hosts are great - very kind, helpful and knowledgeable of the area. We love it and highly recommend it!

Easy pitstop off a main road but so quiet with clear skies for stargazing and a lovely setting.
