We have 40 acres in the upper Yampa River valley with panoramic views and clean mountain air and water. No shade to speak of, but at this elevation it's never terribly hot or humid.
BBQ and fire ring use are dictated by fire danger, and may or may not be allowed according to conditions.
We have excellent deep-well water to fill tanks.
Limited generator use may be allowed depending on size / noise and exact parking location. We have a very scenic remote area where generators would almost certainly be allowed.
Children of all ages are always welcome.
Dogs are always welcome, especially those who remind their humans to help out with tootsie roll patrol.
Access is via 2 miles of good gravel road. To get to the higher sites with even better views, road is dirt and slightly rough but doable in most cars.
Plenty of room to unhitch and tour with tow vehicle
We're home a lot (it's a nice place to be) especially in the summer, but we're planning some trips so contact us for availability..
Steamboat Springs is the county seat, 35 miles away. The Flattops Wilderness is out your window, and the Colorado River is 20 miles away.
The town of Yampa has local color and history, and an excellent restaurant--The Antlers Café and Bar, in season.
The Trowlands are perfect hosts and the countryside is beautiful!
They helped us level our camper and invited us to watch hummingbirds on their front porch, and the sunset over the hills! They were very accommodating but beyond that warm, funny and interesting! And they enjoyed having our kids around, you could tell. :-) We loved our stay with them and would be easily enticed for a return visit!
Thank you so much for everything! We enjoyed our stay and visiting with you!

Tim and Dana are fantastic hosts! Their property is beautiful with stunning views, and more hummingbirds than you could imagine. Tim was a huge help with a small leak in our hot water heater, and answered all my questions about backpacking. Dana took my wife and our daughter on a hike to search for wild mushrooms, they had a blast! The night before we left, we all went out for a great diner at the local Antlers restaurant. We will definitely be back to visit Tim and Dana and the beautiful area!
You can bet I’ll be back and make a point to visit this place again! Very friendly and helpful hosts. A-1!
Beautiful, quiet spot with gracious hosts! The drive there is spectacular at this time of year.
This host was so hospitable. I was unsure about my plans. He was very patient, accommodating and understanding. I wish I would have had a chance to make the stay work. I will just say "WOW! What a view."
High recommendation for these hosts! We had a so great time staying with them. They made us living in an american family and discover their way of life.... They took us discover their beautiful area... We had a wonderful evening around the fire, we wont forget it... Thanks so much!
