House Rules

Please do not pour anything into the white cleanouts on this property except for the cleanout that is ringed with stones near the hardpack RV pad on the left side of the property. The other white caps are either for cleanouts or for filling our fresh water tank behind the tiny house. Also, there is a tiny house on the property with IBC totes and various equipment around the house. Please do not disturb anything around the tiny house. Generators are permitted but please respect the solitude and quiet as much as possible. Enjoy the cool mornings. Take a walk. Have fun! Please be careful while walking because there are steep dropoffs on the top side of our property. Please leave before noon.

Location

You will have to drive on several miles of hardpack, non-asphalted roads. These roads are very slippery during and after rains. They sometimes wash out as well. Be very careful in this semi-remote area. To access the gravel RV pad you will need to drive up the driveway past the gravel pad. Back down to the left onto the gravel pad so your RV door faces the lake and the mountains. You may park on the driveway past the gravel pad. There is a second pad (no gravel, just hard-pack) up the driveway to the left of the main driveway. To the left of this second pad are two cleanouts. The one on the right is two feet higher than the one on the left. The one on the left is below the grade of your RV sewer drain and will gravity feed ok. Please only use this cleanout as the RV dump. All the other white caps are for either fresh water fills or access to the septic system's infiltrator tubes. Please do not use them at all.

My parents introduced me to tent camping at a young age. Then we had a Skamper (and pinched fingers). Then backpacking. I introduced my wife to tent camping 35 years ago. We introduced our sons to camping with a Jayco pop-up. We kept it more than 20 years. The Jayco made it to the shores of the Gulf of Mexico to the mountains of Colorado with Wyoming hunting trips, Oklahoma rivers and lakes in-between. My wife and I now own a Winnie Micro Minnie which we plan to use as a remote office and relaxing. We have a tiny house in Colorado we've been building one week a year. We plan to stay in our Winnie while I finish the tiny. Our favorite places to travel are rivers, lakes, bodies of water, and mountains.

    Great communication, beautiful place, no one’s fault but we couldn’t get in, it had snowed the day we arrived and I spun out going up the hill. Rather than damage the property I backed out and went elsewhere, again, nobody’s fault, we would love to have stayed, the host was very understanding.

    Sleeping at 8,500+ feet is rough on a sea level dweller. It also helps one acclimate. The gravel road in was mercifully not washboards. The stars were phenomenal!

    Had a great visit at Blanca Overlook. Spectacular views from a perfect spot to park our teardrop trailer. Owner's went above and beyond making us feel welcome and made sure we got set up when we arrived during a rain storm. A+ hosts! Thank y'all very much for your hospitality!

    We spent one night in a 20 ft class b. The 5 mile road in was not horrible but not great. We are full time in our RoadTrek and really like to avoid these kinds of roads. But we made it after the GPS tried to send us to the wrong place. We finally walked up to what we thought was the right place. George came out and could not have been kinder. He helped get parked which we needed. After getting settled we were able enjoy the fantastic view. George joined us until the rain came. A wonderful, quiet night though to cloudy for stars. The next morning we visited more with them including a walk through their off grid home. Very fun. And he helped us get positioned to dump. Not sure we would return in our low slung rig because of the road, but can’t say enough positive about George as a host or the location
