If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
When we arrived we were warmly greeted. We parked at the main house and had a short hike to the camping site we chose. We had full access to explore the property. It is so quiet and secluded but not too far away from other attractions.
Since this is a hike in site, bringing limited gear or a wagon would help expedite getting settled. The host did drive most of our stuff in a small tractor/trailer.
What is provided: table, fire pit, help moving gear, toilet set up, and fire wood (dead branches on the ground are allowed to be gathered and used.)
Definitely plan to go back!
The site was quiet, with nice trees and star views. The hosts provide a fire ring, water, and small picnic table. The outhouse was very clean and just a short walk away from the site. Chris and King (their adorable giant dog) were very friendly. In beautiful area close to El Morro and Malpais.
The campsite was pristine. Because it's a few hundred yards from the parking area, it almost felt like wilderness backpacking. I say almost because the site included a picnic table, water, and a fire pit. Seeing Chris's organic farm operation was an added bonus.
Chris's farm is so beautiful and spacious. I stayed on a very clear night with a big full moon. She very warmly greeted me at her ranch and even showed me around the premises a bit. King, her sheepdog is also extremely friendly and serves as guard dog during the night!
Great private camping
My husband and I stayed here for a couple of nights, and it was great! A friendly, giant fluffy white dog named King was there to greet us when we arrived and protected us at night. Chris and those that work on the property were all very friendly and welcoming. The area was well kept and far enough away from the house to provide a secluded camping experience. We want to come back sometime and bring our friends with us.
