Just 15 minutes north of Cortez, Co. and 1/2 mile off Hwy 491, we offer convenience yet the peace and solitude of the country. All our sites are pull thru and offer views of the San Juan Mountains, Mesa Verde Mountains and the Sleeping Ute mountain. We are driving distance from Mesa Verde, Canyon of the Ancients, Hovenweep and other outdoor activities in the Four Corners Area. We have 107 acres so feel free to hike around! Just be aware that our place is still a work in progress so building may be going on, fences going up, etc. 2022 is the first year we've had our RV sites up and ready for guests. Thanks to all who donated we planted nine trees in 2022. Unfortunately, varmits destroyed four of our trees this winter so we are debating planting new trees. We had such a rough winter that we had to add more gravel to our sites. Just installed is a facet so members can fill their RV. Grass seed is ordered so we can start grass between our sites. First up is grass for the area we would like to put a picnic table. Thank heaven the critters left those trees alone so maybe some day we'll have a shaded picnic site!

We have lived in the Four Corners area of Colorado for almost 20 years. We like to travel but are developing a new home site so are staying home more. Our home away from home is a Hitch Hiker fifth wheel. Arizona is where we usually spend our winter months to get away from the Colorado cold.

    Caroline and Curt were some of the finest host you could meet. Close to many local attractions and shopping. Very quiet.

    What a great 5-night stay in mid-October! Hosts communication was excellent, they greeted us at arrival, gave us our choice of parking spots and shared information on the area. Hosts have put a lot of work into making this a great boondocking experience (several site options). We’re a 40’ 5th wheel; access was easy, there is plenty of room to maneuver into and park in one of the long/level pull through sites. It’s very quiet, we’ve seen eagles, ducks, geese, prairie dogs and heard the coyotes. There are plenty of deer tracks, but we didn’t see them. There’s lots of cattle and horses in the area too. If you’re coming to the 4-corners region see historical sites and experience a laid-back friendly environment this is the place; 20 minutes to Cortez for all your supply needs, 40-minutes to Hovenweep, 30 minutes to Masa Verde (mountains and ancient ruins) and the views are spectacular. We only scratched the surface on things to do in the area. Have your binoculars/camera handy. Fabulous sun rise/sets are a daily occurrence and dark skies for star gazing too. I highly recommend this Boondockers welcome host. We’ll return if we’re in the area.

    We enjoyed our time at the 5C Cattle Ranch. They have 5 nice spots all set up for RVs and the instructions provided once our stay was confirmed were specific enough that we could get there and get situated without any questions. We enjoyed our conversation with Caroline and it was quite peaceful there.

    This was a perfect place to stay. Out in the open and quiet, away from town, but close enough! Close to all the sites we wanted to see. Easy access and plenty of space to turn around and get parked; it is well laid out. Our host, Caroline, was very friendly and even offered us onions from her garden! We would definitely stay here again!
