…One With Nature

 Camping Under The Sun & Stars

Camping at Ghost Ranch offers some of the most stunning views and sites in the country. Sleep under more stars than you can imagine.

The Campground opens from May to late October and includes sites for tents, sites with electricity and some sites with full hookups. Most sites have a table and a fire ring, and only a very limited number have shade. Campfires are permitted only when weather conditions allow. Water and a dump station are available at the Campground, but not necessarily at specific sites.

The communal bathhouse is equipped with an ice machine, shared refrigerator, showers, sinks and coin-operated laundry. The communal bathhouse is closed from late October to May but there are alternative sites for bathrooms and showers available. We recommend making reservations for a camp space in advance, however, specific sites are not pre-assigned, nor may specific sites be reserved in advance. Meal tickets may be purchased in the Welcome Center or at the Dining Hall. Meals in the Dining Hall will not be served to campers without a ticket.

 RV Sites

RV Sites –  The Campground has facilities for RV camping, with or without electricity. An RV is defined as any motorized vehicle (van camper, pop-up trailer, motorhome, 5th wheel, or truck camper).

Full hookup sites include water and a dump station at the site, and 30- and/or 50-amp electric hookups. Please inform the Main Office of the total length of the vehicle, plus any towed trailer or extra vehicles. There are only a small number of full hookup sites, available on a first come, first served basis. There is a 10-20 minute walk to the Dining Hall and meeting rooms. 

 Pet Policy

If you are in a self-contained RV that your pet can comfortably stay in, they are welcome to join you overnight in the campground. They are not allowed in any other lodging. Leashed pets are welcome to go with you as you explore the property but may not enter any of the buildings. For day guests, leashed dogs are allowed to visit and hike. Assistance animals with prior notification to the Registrar’s Office are allowed – 505.685.1001.
