About the Property
A Comfortable Camping Experience In The Wilderness For The Whole Family
Anasazi Glamping Cabin is located within the only twenty mile long gated box canyon in the Chama Wilderness. 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.
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.

Why the Owner Chose Abiquiu, NM, USA:
We chose this ranch because the beauty and the seclusion of this canyon is unique; it is like having our own mini Grand Canyon--- the same Northern New Mexico beauty that awed and inspired the artist Georgia O'Keeffe.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Family Camp includes for your summer enjoyment a 1,000 gallon soaking pool that is continuously fed from a fresh water spring, and includes a table and chairs for use inside the pool. The overflow from the tank attracts a many species of birds, which makes the pool area a bird watcher's dream. The pool is nestled inside an earthen and rock 1900s homestead open-air water storage tank. Mosquitoes are not a problem in Gallina Canyon. With a spectacular view during the day and awe-inspiring panorama of stars at night, the pool area is a great place to enjoy the sights and sound of the canyon. Bring a star map and toast marshmallows we provide over the propane fire pit bowl, then lay back in the provided 'gravity chairs' and watch for meteors streaking across the velvet black sky. The glamping cabin is the perfect wilderness experience for two families to camp together , corporate get-together, and group camping: please email if you are looking for a group camp site.
