First off and most importantly I will start off describing this property as a rescue ranch in progress. We have rescue horses, mules and donkeys roaming freely throughout the property. We also have rescue dogs that are all friendly and enjoy running freely and greeting our guests. 

All Hipcamp proceeds go towards the care of the rescue animals. We warmly welcome you to come and camp on our isolated 160 acre New Mexico ranch and experience peace, tranquility and breathtaking scenic beauty.  

Pitch a tent on one of  several designated camping spots (or pick your own) or bring your RV or camper trailer and prepare yourself for amazing radiant sunsets, jaw-dropping night skies, and rejuvenating sunrises.  During the day hike the surrounding red cliffs and mesas, view the ancient petroglyphs and find amazing pottery shards scattered throughout the property, or just hang out and meet our rescue animal children. Occasionally a herd of elk will venture out and graze with our equines. At night you will be serenaded by the neighboring coyotes and resident spotted owls.  Feel like exploring off the ranch? Visit the nearby Casamero Pueblo ruins a mile down the road, Bluewater Lake State Park or drive to the small post-mining town of Grants and explore the Mining Museum, Bandera Volcano & Ice Cave, El Malpais National Monument and many other nearby interesting sites!

Magical! so many happy animals!

Nevermore Ranch is amazing! It's a working dog and horse rescue in a beautiful red sandstone canyon! Nathalie had about 10 horses and 10 dogs, 4 cats, and a goat, mostly roaming about trying to nuzzle us. We were the first ever public guests and the campsite wasn't fenced off from the dogs yet, but it will be soon and it's already ideal if you're sleeping in a van (we were). It is truly magical to have jealous horses surrounding you and nuzzling to get petted at your campsite in the morning. And all the animals were sooo happy and healthy! I also recommend arriving after dark so you can be blown away by the views in the morning.

Notice the van in the corner!  That was our campsite!More or less the view above our campsiteHorses nuzzling in the morning!

David, I'm so glad your family enjoyed the visit. It was such a joy to see your kids run around with pure pleasure and excitement on their faces! Maybe next time you come through if you want to stay again we can trade off.... campsite for permaculture education!! :-). p.s. the dogs enjoyed your kids too!!

Natalie has a really neat piece of land and I'm so grateful she shares this special place with not only people but unwanted animals too. The horses are friendly and politely curious. The dogs are your welcoming committee and the ducks, turkeys, chickens, and goats are so adorable! I really, really liked my stay here.

My stay was peaceful and just what I needed. There are petroglyphs right across from campsite 4, where I stayed, and if you continue along the rock you will see what appears to be inscriptions from when the Spaniards came through this area. You can hike around the entire property if you would like to move about and the stars at night are so clear, they are like beacons of hope.

This site was absolutely gorgeous. We stayed right along the rocks with a gorgeous sunset and morning walk to the pictographs. Natalie is extremely accommodating and even has a few horses, goats, and dogs to pet! Highly recommend. Looking forward to staying here again, soon.

This was our first stop on a cross-country drive with a pop-up camper and we're so glad it was! Nevermore Ranch is tucked into a beautiful part of New Mexico and it was wonderful to wake up to the beautiful mesas and cliffs just beyond the campsite. The sites are rustic and the dirt soft but we were able to pull our pop up out to the camping area with ease. Nevermore Ranch is a very special place.

Do not miss this place!!! It was truly one of the most beautiful spots we’ve ever seen. Natalie was a quick texter and extremely responsive. She and her gaggle of horses welcomed us and took us to the most spectacular site with a quick bit of history, a load of fire wood and a very friendly personality. We were bowled over by this places beauty.

AMAZING views and place to stay! Natalie was wonderful accommodating us at the last minute. Sent us videos of what her place looks like and how to get to our spot since she wasn’t going to be home when we arrived. Really cool waking up to horses and donkeys greeting us outside our tent for breakfast! If I can figure out how to post pics I will.
