A place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beauty of the Rio Hardy as it quietly flows along the western edge of the Colorado River Delta, a "UNESCO Biosphere Reserve". Teeming with wildlife, the Rio Hardy is a stopover for migrating birds along the Pacific Flyway. Located just 58 km south of Mexicali and 1000 meters from the newly improved Mexico Highway 5, Rancho Mil is an easy one hour drive from the US Border.
This is a place of quiet solitude yet brimming with outdoor activities. Bird watching, touring kayaks & SUP's, desert hiking & ATV trails, or just relax on your riverfront patio with a cold drink and a good book. It's YOUR choice. At night, the desert sky lights up with a million stars. Relax and reflect as the full moon rises across the river, or plan your trip to coincide with one of the annual meteor showers throughout the year.
There are currently a small number of Riverfront Vacation Homes available for sale at Rancho Mil. Starting at just $30,000usd, these homes can be customized to your preferences. Future development at the ranch is very restricted, and the opportunities for membership are limited.
I first came to this "Campo" on the Rio Hardy in 1977. From the beginning I was captivated by the beauty and serenity. There was, and still is, a feeling of being a million miles away from "civilization". What started for me as a basic camping experience, with just a patio and palapa, has evolved over the years into a beautiful adobe brick home with all of the comforts. After 36 years as a member, I was given the opportunity to purchase the concession for the entire campo. I have renamed it "RANCHO MIL" (Mil is Spanish for Thousand), and begun a revitalization with an emphasis on the natural bounty of the Colorado River Delta.
Our master plan includes a very limited number of vacation home opportunities, with only a few remaining for sale. We also offer a guest house, a restoration area and a campground for educational groups.
