Intro: My wife Penny and I are full time travelers, living and working in a 21 foot RV with our Siberian Husky named Kaylee and our adventure kitten Rue. We love photography, foraging, cooking, and meeting new people and hearing awesome campfire stories
We loved our stay out on Christine's amazing farm! She was such an amazing host, we felt so welcomed and right at home. Her farm is a total paradise for animal lovers like us! All the animals were so friendly and we loved spending time with them. Christine even gave us some goat-friendly cookies to feed them and that was so fun. The alpacas were beautiful, and although shy, they definitely came up to us for some alfalfa treats and we got the chance to pet them. The camping spot is easy to get to and feels totally secluded from the farm while being conveniently close. There are trees that provide great shade and cover, and the back of the property is huge and perfect for hiking. We never wanted to leave!
We had a wonderful relaxing stay out on Chivalry Friesians Ranch! Lindsay was very accommodating and it was easy to book our stay and the directions were perfect. The property is huge, and the whole area is open for campers to pick whatever site they'd like. We absolutely loved all the horses! It was so much fun to camp right in the pasture with them and have them wander up to our campsite for loves. They were all so gentle and friendly; we spent most of our camping trip petting and loving on them! We highly recommend this hidden gem to any animal lover who loves the idea of camping out with sweet friendly horses!
We absolutely loved visiting the Dragonfly cabin! Shannon was a wonderful accommodating host who made sure we were comfortable and had all we needed. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and cozy. It is a perfect glamping getaway. The campsite was spacious and very well maintained. There is a whole shed filled with fun yard games available for all campers, and we loved playing the giant jenga! The site had every ammenity we needed, from beautiful chairs on the cabin porch, a fire pit, to a nice picnic table for camp meals.
We had a fantastic time staying out at Mil Abrazos. Poki was one of the most hospitable welcoming hosts we've ever met; he went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and we really enjoyed getting to know him. He has amazing visions for the land, and it will be exciting to watch the ideas come to fruition. The camping area is in a beautiful field and there is a nice wooden platform perfect for pitching a tent on. The pond right next to the field hosts some beautiful birds and is perfect for a dip in the summer months. Poki has rescued numerous dogs and they are a big band of happy wagging tails and tongues who are happy to give visiting campers plenty of love. There is a bathroom available for campers to use, which was nice and clean and we greatly appreciated it. There is a beautiful hike to take through the land to the river about a mile away, and the river is spectacular!
The beautiful cabin we stayed at out at Los Vallecitos Retreat blew us away! It was the coziest cabin, and we loved every minute of our stay. Carla had the cabin ready and perfectly clean for us. The wood burning stove kept us warm and toasty all night long. The property was absolutely stunning; our drive through the woods to our cabin was spectacular. The cabin was tucked away from all the other buildings creating an amazing secluded getaway. Our view from the cabin showed the beautiful snow capped mountains and a wide open field, which our dog loved running through. The cabin was spacious and had everything we could need for a great stay. The animals on the ranch were so cool to see, from the sheep to the cows and horses. If you're looking for a truly peaceful getaway up in the wooded mountains, this is definitely it!
We came and stayed at Jackalope Ranch in December, and although we dealt with a bit of chilly winter weather, we had a fantastic camping trip! The ranch is very private and secluded, and we had a great time relaxing in peace and quiet and exploring the ranch on our own time. It's a no frills campsite, although there are some amenities for campers, like nice built up rock fire pits, log benches, and a picnic table. It's a wonderful rustic setting in the heart of New Mexico. It's a perfect site for self-contained RVs, with plenty of wide open level space to set up camp. The river overlook was stunning and we really enjoyed exploring the old structures on the property as well.
We loved staying out in the hand built adobe tiny house! Harvey was an amazing host, we loved getting to talk to him. We were blown away by how incredible the tiny house was! Harvey had it well stocked with tea, snacks, plenty of cooking supplies, and coffee. The Abiquiu area was so much fun to explore, and we loved the hikes in the area. We definitely hope to come back again and enjoy another amazing stay!
We had such a great stay out at Hill End in the cute adobe studio! Our host Sarah was very welcoming and hospitable. The studio was very spacious and stayed nice and cozily warm with the wood burning stove. We loved all the books available to browse, and were happily surprised to learn that Sarah is an author! We loved her book so much we bought a copy! The grounds around Hill End are wonderfully landscaped and we enjoyed walking around taking in the stunning mountain views. There is a communal fire pit available for nice evenings, and plenty of collected rain water available for camper use. The adobe studio made for an absolutely wonderful camping trip!
We loved staying out at Big Spin Ranch! Rory describes it perfectly; it's unmarked land pretty much in the middle of nothing, and we loved it as a quiet solitary retreat. The land was perfectly clean and undisturbed, and we enjoyed hiking around seeing the desert shrubs and animals. It was great to let our four legged campers explore around off-leash without any worry, and they had a blast sniffing around! We were easily able to dig a pit for a great campfire and spent the evening cooking over the fire and enjoying the warmth. The freeway is close by, but we weren't disturbed by the noise at all. We would recommend exercising caution on the roads leading to the site, they are definitely a bit sandy and we had to watch the weather to make sure we didn't get stuck in the mud resulting from rain the following day.
We loved the closeness of this campsite to Petrified Forest National Park and it was great to have an affordable convenient camping spot right nearby.
We had such a great time staying out at Maurice's campground! We drove the beautiful scenic route 66 to the site, which was stunning and memorable. The site has beautiful 360 views of the surrounding mountains, and we loved the seclusion it provided. We had a great time hiking the nearby area and looking for fire agates- beautiful remnants from the past volcanic activity in the area. There are wild burrows that live in the area and we loved hearing the occasional bray from them and we were lucky enough to get to see a group of them the following day! This is a truly memorable getaway right off the incredible historic route 66 and we loved our stay immensely!
We had a wonderful time staying out with Mike and Susy! They are located right between Coachella Valley, Palm Springs, and Joshua Tree National Park. Their entire property is completely fenced, which means dogs are able to run about unleashed, and our husky thoroughly enjoyed the freedom. They have adorable happy hens which produce fresh eggs daily, and they are available for campers to buy. The campsites are well thought out; they have picnic tables and fire rings available for use. Mike and Susy are amazing hosts! We had so much fun hanging out with them and getting to know them. We loved that there were both showers and a secluded outdoor bathtub available. There are plenty of amazing areas to relax with a good book and enjoy the sun and the spectacular mountain views. If you're in the area, this is definitely the place to camp!
