Downer Ranch is a 72 acre former cattle ranch that is fully fenced and cross fenced with 3 cattle corrals. We are an animal rescue and sanctuary that also operates a campground.

Currently the horses onsite (3 with another rescue arriving in a few weeks) are completely free to roam, so please be mindful when sharing their home. If you love the idea of whenever access to your horse, the ability to tent camp or bring your trailer and stay, this is an excellent location!

This amazing and beautiful property has a neat history as well, including a cattle ranch, logging and even a gold mine dating back to 1902! Many of the mining/logging/ranching roads have recently been graded. The property is mostly rolling hills with a neat steep hiking trail to the top of the mountain which brings you to the top of the property that joins the 150 acres of BLM land.
