Its 40 acres about 5 miles south of Pueblo, Co. The nearest tree is a mile away. This is wide open prairie. If you have a dog be aware that there are cactus plants on this property. Please do not start a camp fire if the conditions are dry and or windy.
Be respectful, that's about it. Cranking up a very loud generator is not being respectful. If you intend on running a loud generator that can be heard from 1/4 mile please do not make a stay request.
This property is about 6 miles off the interstate. The first 2 miles are paved. The next 4.5 miles are hard packed rock and dirt. Its a good road except during or just after a heavy rain or snow. The last 1.5 miles can be dusty.
There are about 5 acres here so its wide open. Its up to you where you park. Feel free to drive on the vegetation (what little there is) to get to your parking spot.

As we were on our way south to Carlsbad, we realized that it got shut down - again! I contacted rideorfloat with a VERY last-minute request and he graciously accepted. We arrived around 8:30 that evening and parked on his property. As all of our plans were now canceled, we needed time to make new ones. He welcomed us a few days so we could sort things out and run errands. The day we went to leave, it snowed!!!! It was beautiful. We waited until late afternoon to finally get on the road. He actually passed us and waved as we headed south to our next destination. We are so grateful for his kindness and hospitality. Thank you!!!!
We really enjoyed our time here! It was so quiet and peaceful! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay on your property.
We were very grateful for a last minute boondocking spot! Flat place to park. Gorgeous sunset and sunrise. We were greeted by a herd of antelope grazing near our van in the morning. Gracious host was very welcoming and inviting. Dirt road is in great shape!
rideorfloat - Thanks for your support during our emergency two week stay at your place (May 4-19, 2020) when we unexpectedly had to come out out altitude due to medical condition of mine and be admitted to hospital for a week. Thanks also for helping Kathy stabilize our trailer in my absence when the tongue shifted off the block of wood. Kathy and I both acknowledged you were a Godsend as we were in dire need of help and you were there!

Perfect location for visiting Pueblo. Host gave us very clear instructions which led us to the property which has plenty of room and lots of great views.
We arrived as the sun was setting. Rob was waiting at the gate to greet us. He showed us to the gravel rock pad that was level & perfect for our trailer. The 360 degree horizon views were outstanding! We enjoyed a peaceful night under the stars. Thank you to Rob for hosting us!!
We had a great spot out in the open. Plenty of room. Our host was very nice and helped us settle in. We saw a really cool double rainbow while we were there.
Had a very relaxing stay here for a couple of days. The area is pretty isolated and very peaceful. There were antelope roaming about and the bird songs were lovely. Also, had the opportunity to chat with Robert and receive some of his travelling recommendations. He was very hospitable and accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area or passing through.
Rideorfloat let us stay at his place even though he hadn't planned to host anymore. That, of course, made the stay even better but without it we would still have enjoyed the remote location with the nice view!
We loved staying here. Plenty of open space and beautiful views of the mountains.
