Camp near our canyon rim overlooking Madrid, NM! Just 20 miles south of Santa Fe along the Turquoise Trail, Scaramanga Ranch is a majestic 25-acre film production site with epic sunrises and sunsets, surreal views, dynamic elevations and diverse terrain. Hike along our 2500 ft and 150 ft deep canyon or venture inside to stroll Goodnight's Gulch. Scaramanga's owners are producers who live and work on site. Between filming, the GLBT-friendly ranch is available to adult campers age 21 and up. Zero light pollution means excellent stargazing and nebulas seen with the naked eye. Roast marshmellow or grill over your own campfire! Quartz veins, unique minerals and fossils can be found all over the property. Chickens and peacocks are in the aviaries. Dogs and hornes welcome. You'll feel isolated in wilderness, yet just a 10-minute walk to boutique shops, bars, restaurants, and a coffee bar. Netflix, Amazon, Better Call Saul and Roswell have been here so why not you?
