“i want to believe...”

Have you ever wondered what a real UFO looks like?

Have you ever wondered if there is life on other planets?

Judy Messoline of Hooper, Colorado, has....

Judy's favorite TV shows were "Sightings" & "The X-Files". After watching show after show, she realized she was hearing things like "Great Sand Dunes" and "San Luis Valley" on many episodes.

With this in mind, Judy created the first ever UFO Watch Tower!

Part campsite, part UFO enthusiast mecca, complete with healing vortexes, and alien rock garden..

Weird and kinda awesome. Wouldn't camp here, though - I've got to second the other reviewer, go down the road to the Sand Dunes Swimming Pool & RV Park! It's $10 for a campsite with a port-a-potty and no amenities here, while the Pool costs $20 for all the bells and whistles in great condition.

My boyfriend and I were driving down Hwy 61 when we saw this fairly odd place. Having a lot of time, we decided to give it a quick view. There was nothing much to see, though. And the was no one there to collect our payment. So we just left money on the box located at the entrance. There was not much to see, just a bunch of strange stuff. I'm not sure if there are still people who choose to camp here. Just looks like a typical shabby tourist trap.

Judy was a great host and had some fun UFO stories, my 8 and 4 year old enjoyed walking around. I am not sure I would camp there, but it was a great photo op stop. You are charged $5 per car load or $2 per person. Bring something along to leave "your energy" in the garden.

Don't forget to bring a special something to add to the alien rock garden.

filled with a bunch of odd little things. Okay for a photo op but you are charged to go in. Not a very good campground (Go down the road to the Sand Dunes Swimming Pool & RV Park!)
