The UFO Watchtower is definitely worth the stop. It's quirky and eclectic. The lady working there is friendly and has interesting stories. Don't forget to bring a trinket for the aliens.

There's a private campground on site that makes a great base to explore the surrounding region. Hot springs, Great Sand Dunes National Park, Zapata Falls, Crestone(art colony, buddhist monastery, maybe Nordic aliens), and gators!! Rio Grande National Forest and Creede makes a great day trip...More

If you're driving through the San Luis Valley on your way to the sand dunes, hot springs, Crestone, the alligator farm or wherever, this is worth a stop to stretch your legs and look at all the cool little trinkets people leave behind.

I have watched many episodes of Ancient Aliens and my daughter said let's check it out, so road trip! We had a good time visiting the Watchtower. The night skies are incredible! We will come back in the summer when there are warm nights!

We had a great time bought some gifts, and gator tickets discounted, bring something to leave behind.

UFO Watchtower had appeared on TripAdvisor as I planned this trip. Unfortunately, the attraction was closed on this Thursday morning in October. We viewed the Watchtower from the road and driveway and took lots of photos. What a fun sight on the side of the...More
