Gravel drive is about 400 feet to sites and a little bumpy..
Lots of space for parking
My host made me feel like part of the family. We gathered to socialize at the end of the day and they even shared eggs from their chickens and homemade goat cheese! Crawford and Hotchkiss are both neat little towns to explore. don't miss Needle Rock and Black Canyon of the Gunnison, North Rim.
We camped two nights on the property and it was perfect for our needs. Met and spoke with the hosts a couple of times, very nice and welcoming. The Black Canyon of the Gunnison, north rim is about 30-45 minutes away and we spent a full day there. This was perhaps the most quiet spot we have ever had! Heard absolutely nothing during the night. Also ask the hosts about Joe Cocker. Parking is down in the flat area by the covered patio, not by the RVs by the house. Check it out if you are in area.
The driveway was a little daunting, but the reward was a level spot for a quiet night. Turn left to the lower area before you get to the house.
One of the best places we have visited on our journey. Great host and perfect spot for a getaway. We had a wonderful time at Ranch Crawkiss.
Thanks for the great stay.
We ended up staying one night at Ranch Crawkiss, instead of two, due to needing better cell phone reception for remote school and work. Text messaging worked fine, however!
The place is great and a perfect location for exploring Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP. Our host welcomed us when we arrived and was very friendly and hospitable. We wish we could have stayed longer to explore the biking around his place. He is putting lots of work into this location and it seems like it’s going to be a very cool space!
Randy treated us like royalty! His location is a work in progress and will be a very desirable location with a million dollar view!
The host was very welcoming and accommodating. Looking forward to returning in the future 😃
We had prompt and easy communication with our host who greeted us when we arrived and showed us where to park. We stayed two nights and it got pretty hot during the day but cooled off nicely after sundown. Very convenient to drive over to the north rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison which was awesome. We would be happy to stay here again in the future.
