A Most Accommodating Pair

Though our stay was short, I wanted to stay longer. Very respectful, kind and accommodating. Especially love Tina Turner.

Nice stop near Mesa Verde

Turner Ranch were great hosts. They provided a nice level gravel spot to stay in. There is a bit of an incline to access the parking area, but we had no problem in our van. The canyon where they are located is very scenic. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Turner Ranch

Perfect spot for a few nights! Beautiful location and close to some great hikes


June 2021

Easy to find and super nice people

We appreciated the spot so much that we asked to stay a second night. There are lovely hikes just 6.5 miles down the road where we saw cliff dwellings and amazing lizards.

Nice quiet overnight site

We were passing thru the area and just needed a overnight on our way home. The Turner Ranch site worked just fine for us. Kturner are nice Hosts and very accommodating. Our travel trailer is under 20' which fit the gravel RV parking site well. Just enough room including my RAM tow vehicle. We would stay there again if we visit the area.

Turner Ranch

Very pleasant stay at the Turner Ranch! First hosting experience for them and first guest stay for us(after hosting for 3-4 years). Quiet, comfortable boondocking spot looking out at the valley. Thanks so much for hosting us.
