Two van sites and one gorgeous cabin; site slopes gently to a wooded pecan bottom where kayaks and fishing poles, swim hole and fire pit are provided to guest. Desert and riparian ecosystems collide for an astonishing variety of plants and animals. This river has a cult following among birders and insect lovers.

We host only three van campers and one cabin here to keep the space intimate.

Van site #1 is adjacent to the main house and guest may share one of the front porches. Van sites 2 & 3 are more private and view the bluffs. Access to the river, kayaks and the fire ring are included.

A shuttle fee upriver is an additional $20 per person. You may then paddle back to the site! Fishing equipment is provided: replace it if you break it.

Fires are allowed only at the common fire pit and cooking area. Occasionally all fire is prohibited.

Humans have been living on this site for over 7,000 years. It is a profoundly peaceful spot; although not a quiet one. The area hums with birdsong, bees, snorting deer and running water. Traffic from the highway is audible.  At night you can hear the rapids. 

Dogs are allowed on leashes; but barking dogs, even in your van, will not be allowed to remain. Be mindful of the many desert critters that jab, bite or sting here when walking your dog.

You may pitch and additional tent or awning alongside your camper.

Cupgrass is a welcoming and receiving community and diversity is celebrated here.

Owner lives on site.
