You can’t find even one small inch of this place that isn’t well thought out and beautiful. I spent hours in the woods exploring. Absolutely beautiful. The owner was so welcoming and helpful. I will be coming back here again.

I had such a great experience at Wilderness Buffalo Ranch! Lynn was the sweetest host, and I felt that she genuinely cared about helping make my trip safe and enjoyable. The property is truly beautiful and there is so much to explore. Heads up - camping here is best with a vehicle that does well off-road. I drove here in my Civic and had limited access by car to certain areas due to the terrain...however I intentionally chose this HipCamp because I planned to hike in and camp. That being said, it was ideal for just that! I highly recommend and I plan to return at some point in the future...such a beautiful place

The road out to the ranch was a little rough on my car but once we got there Donny showed us a nice site that was easily accessible. The site offered a great view of the farm and was very quiet and peaceful. The stars were beautiful and we were able to walk around the farm a bit to see some cows! Great stay!

When I first read about this place it sounded too good to be true. After spending the weekend there I can say that it was the most fun I have had riding, camping, hiking, taking stunning photos, and climbing I have had in a long time. The owners make you feel like family and the property makes for endless adventures. Just a great experience.
