Our Days Available calendars are updated every morning. Please check our main website (links are above the 'Photos' section near the bottom of this page) for more details and images of our three beautiful and unique vacation rentals.
Anasazi Glamping Cabin is located within the only twenty mile long gated box canyon in the Chama Wilderness at the end of a 15 mile long adventurous dirt road. The cabin includes a completely equipped and carpeted kitchen, living room, and dining area under a 20x30 foot roof. The cabin has cold running spring water, table, chairs, cooking stove, refrigerator, pots, pans, tableware, propane barbecue, and propane fire pit bowl.
The rental is located on the site of an early 1900s homestead and is one of three vacation rentals we have in the canyon, with Ranch Wilderness Casita and Remote Wilderness Casita.
Unique at your camp site is a 1,000 gallon soaking pool nestled inside an earthen and rock open-air water storage area which was originally built by the ancient Anasazi Indians, with a breathtaking view of the canyon's 1,700-foot red sand stone walls. The pool is fed with continuously flowing cool spring water.
Exclusive to Anasazi Ruin Family Cabin: take your children (ages 10 and older) on a hike to see an authentic ancient Anasazi ruin of a cliff-side winter storage shelter.
Gallina Canyon Ranch has been featured in many national and regional magazines, including New Mexico magazine, The Santa Fean, Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset, and Martha Stewart Living.
On rare days when heavy rain makes the road too muddy to travel, we will take you to the camp and leave with you our mud-friendly truck with tire chains for emergency use.
The specially designed protected play area for your children is at the ranch. You may walk or drive. At the ranch is the community swimming pond, inflatable kayaks, floating trampoline, Slither (a 17-foot water park floating snake on which children can sit, stand, and walk), floating arm chairs, boogie board, and a sand box with children's toys. The Gallina River runs right by this area where children love to play in the mud. We supply towels. Not far from the pond is the ranch playground with swings, rotating teeter totter, jungle gym, horizontal bar, hanging merry-go-round, donkey cart, pioneer wagon, grape arbor, and chairs. WiFi is available in these areas.

Our rental Casitas are the only rentals within 20 miles of the Chama Wilderness. From Highway 84 you turn on to FS Road 151. Eight miles down the road is the bridge you will open and cross. Our ranch is another 8 miles from the bridge. If your vehicle has exceptionally low clearance we will meet you at the bridge and bring you in our truck to your Casita. (Example: Scion, Mini Cooper, Prius)
From Albuquerque take Highway 25 north to Santa Fe. From Santa Fe take Highway 285/84 north to Española. Continue north on Highway 84 towards Abiquiù and Chama. Half a mile after Mile Marker 227, there are two signs: "Forest Road 151" and "Monastery 13 miles." Turn left.
From Chama New Mexico: take Highway 84 South towards Abiquiù and Española. You will pass the Echo Amphitheater on your right. Look for Mile Marker 228 on your right. After Mile Marker 228, there are two signs: "Forest Road 151" and "Monastery 13 miles." Turn right.
On Road 151 continue west 8 miles until you come to Skull Bridge on the left; you will be provided with the combination to the bridge's locked gate. A sign before the bridge, on the right, reads "Gallina Canyon Ranch 8 Miles."
Unlock the bridge's gate by entering the correct numbers, and remember to PUSH IN THEN PULL OUT for the lock to open. DISREGARD THE SIGNS THAT READ "NO VEHICLES" AND "ROAD CLOSED."
Drive across the bridge, close and lock it again, and change the numbers. The same instructions apply to the next gate. Continue down the road and you will arrive at Gallina Canyon Ranch.
Allow 1 hour from Highway 84 to the ranch.
