Situated 3 miles from the Mexican border, (about 5 miles to drive) in the village of Columbus.
We have a long circle drive with plenty of room. Our property overlooks Mexico with views in excess of 30 miles. The skies are amazing from sunrise till the starry night.
Be aware of your surroundings. This is a desert environment and there are plenty of things that can poke and bite. Stumbling into a cactus can be quite painful as well as stepping on one wearing sandals. Watch where you step if you're out wandering the landscape and you'll be fine.
Rattlesnakes and coyotes are seen in the area, so keep your pets and kids supervised.
We have satellite internet out here, and due to the cost we ask for the $5/day wifi.
Leave no trace.
Well behaved kids welcome.
Gravel road last ½ mile. Rain is rare, but road can get muddy after a rainy stretch. 4x4 NOT required.
Park next to rig.

The town on the Mexican side is Puerto Palomas. It's a quiet border town with a (usually) quick crossing. Many nice inexpensive restaurants, optometrists, dentists, farmacias and shops to explore. Many come just for the affordable dental care & glasses. We have personally gotten glasses (exam, frames, progressive bifocal, transitions lenses and anti-reflective coating) for $150.
