Ghost Ranch’s most affordable housing option, the camping sites are nestled in a canyon surrounded by red rocks. The Campground has facilities for tent camping, with or without electricity. Most sites have a table and a fire ring (campfires are permitted only when weather conditions allow), and only a very limited number have shade. The communal bathhouse is equipped with an ice machine, shared refrigerator, showers, sinks and coin-operated laundry. There is a 10-20 minute walk to the Dining Hall and meeting rooms.
The Campground is open year-round. 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.
Campers should check in at the Welcome Center first, and then with the Campground Host.
Pet Policy: For day guests, leashed dogs are allowed to visit and hike. If you are in a self-contained RV that the 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. Assistance animals with prior notification to the Registrar’s Office are allowed, 505.685.1001 or 505.685.1017.
