Love 4 Corners.

Ernesto, Art,
Great ideas, small, limited safe ports for the A/S crowd.
A simple notch above courtesy parking, we think it will work.
We'll check with you on our next SW outing, both areas are great.

The upper Rio near the headwaters at Creed, CO are very good - but a longer drive. You can fish in the Rio Grande National Forest which abuts my property to the west. I suggest you call the Conejos River Anglers fly shop which is in Mogote, CO and about 4 miles from my property. They do guided day trips on the Conejos which is also a great river to catch/release football-sized trout.

Very promising!

Snow conditions near Antonito, CO

John (aka: Relentless),

I can usually count on opening the cabin in mid-April and closing it in mid-December. Last year we closed it earlier, Thanksgiving weekend.

Road conditions vary during the season depending upon severity of afternoon rain - the best months are August/September/October.

Be safe streaming out there!

I see where you are going with this, but I don't think it will work. I have free parking for Airstreamers consisting of two 30 amp sites with water and a complete bathroom adjacent to the sites. I allow gray water discharge and there is no need for black water discharge with the restroom adjacent. This is all situated on the banks of the Leon river under total shade with tables and good fishing opportunities, especially in the Spring. The only downside is it is accessible only by a 3 mile well maintained county gravel road which can be dusty at times. In fact the photo in my avator is of the site.
My facility has only been used a time or two in spite of being free. I don't think you are going to make any money at this.

Nearest neighbor is 3 miles away. Awesome wildlife (antelope, deer, elk) in area and stars are incredible. Flyfishing is only minutes away on the Los Pinos and Chama rivers. Very quiet and a remote feeling without being too far away from civilization - 20 minute drive-time to restaurants and groceries in Antonito. My elevation there is just over 8,300 feet.

If anyone's up for this type of "overnighting", let me know...

I would like to limit it to Airstreamers only...
Wanna be my new best buddy

Years ago, we used to camp outside of Sunspot going out towards Timberon in a place called Danely (sp?) Canyon. Then, we had a pop-up that could pass on the white-knuckle roads. From our spot, we could look out over Alamogordo & White Sands... boondockin' all the way and nary another soul for over two weeks... sure was nice... going up the mountain to Cloudcroft then on to Sunspot sure was beautiful...

Not in it for the money, brother. Just offering up another nice very quiet remote site to chill for awhile -- for free!

Jaxon: We love that part of NM! There's some nice public sites down that way also, near interesting petroglyphs. Used to take our pop-up down there back in the late '80s. NICE!

That's our idea of getting away from it all and our preferred style of camping. We can last one week on our tanks and now we have a good solar setup. I wish more big land owners would open up these open spaces because we'd gladly pay. This style of boondocking is very appealing to us.

It doesn't seem like there would be much money to be made, but it is income nevertheless if you're going to own the property anyway.

Janet and Leon..the advantage of have some amenities like water/electricity/picnic table/firepit/firewood and wifi really add to the ranch land experience and solitude in the weekly rental which will start in late August early September...Ernesto..Carneros Ranch of NM

It would be nice if you did not rule out short stays. Some of us are looking for a space like that for a stop over on our way to Albuquerque traversing from I-20 to I-40. It sounds like it is far enough from the main highway to keep noise to a minimum. Recommend you keep the price down to $15/night to include E/W and use of the dump site. I like the idea of cable if there is no tv reception in the area, otherwise not really necessary.

Remote camping sound really great and would be worth driving down a non paved road to get to because there would be no highway noise to interfere with the solitude. As far as having a cable hookup, why does someone want to bring along all the distractions from the outside world? The reason we go camping is to get away from the rat race and all the commotion from back home. After all, the news broadcasts on TV are all about war, crime and generally things that make one unhappy and agitated.
