Gillespie Ranch is a historic New Mexico ranch located in the southern Sacramento Mountains just east of Cloudcroft one of the most beautiful areas of the state. Because the ranch elevation is a bit lower than the Cloudcroft resort area, winters are milder and spring and summer warmer; thus the ranch is open to visitors all year long.

A true working cattle ranch in the Lincoln National Forest, Gillespie Ranch encompasses 15,000 acres ranging in elevation from 7200 to 8600 feet.

Wildlife is abundant and includes elk, deer, bear, mountain lion and turkey. Trails range from easy to extreme take your choice. Whether on a horse or an ATV - just head out directly from the full service RV park/horse campground or cabin.

Susan and Kent welcome horseback riders, hunters, ATV riders, and anyone else you want to bring along. Camp in your rig or enjoy the fully equipped cozy cabin. Come to ride or hunt, or just to enjoy the mountain scenery. If you tire of the mountain solitude, or just want a nice dinner, Cloudcroft with its many shops and restaurants, and Ruidoso with its casinos, race track, museums, fishing, shops and restaurants, are just a short distance away.

Also available at Gillespie Ranch is a long term horse boarding facility, round pen, roping arena, stallion service, and Backwoods Treasures gift shop. WiFi is available on the gift shop porch.
