Vallecito Stage Station County Park

A historic park featuring a preserved 1850s stagecoach station with exhibits on the region's pioneer history, nature trails, and picnicking spots.

Tips from the community

A great place to see an authentic desert stage station, used by the Overland Mail Co. and the Jackass Mail. Located on the Butterfield Overland Trail, Vallecito provided a welcome respite to travelers on their "24 days of hell" trip to San Francisco (or back to St. Louis or Memphis). While we didn't shoot any episodic content for Southwest Stories here, we did shoot part of a historical trails documentary here.
