Grab your camp chair and sit a few feet above the river to relax. Riverside Ranch is home to a herd of miniature nigerian dwarf dairy goats, free range chickens, a Dexter heifer, guinea fowl, and a large friendly livestock guardian dog named Boris. We welcome our camp guests to visit the farm. Feel free to bring your yoga mat for an informal self directed goat yoga session too. We can even arrange a formal session with a local yogi for a fee if you book in advance. I give demonstrations on milking dairy goats, cold process goat milk soap-making and cheese-making in my farm kitchen upon request, and I would be happy to give you a tour of the barns and pastures and explain what I know about raising dairy goats to anyone willing to learn. This spring I hope to be adding a kitchen garden up at the farmhouse and getting some new laying hens so we should start having farm fresh eggs and salad greens for our guests again by summer too. This property is located five miles southeast of the town of Three Rivers, a short distance below the entrance gate to Sequoia National Park (about 40 minutes below the Giant sequoias) and 7 miles from Lake Kaweah, where you will find almost unlimited outdoor activities to enjoy. You can go on a day trip from our location to the giant trees inside Sequoia and hit all the waterfalls on the route to Road's End in Kings Canyon. You can also take Dry Creek Road to Pinehurst, travel the North Fork Drive to the historic Kaweah Post Office, travel forty minutes off the paved road to the end of South Fork to LadyBug Creek to hiking trails, and so much more. *This is a working ranch. There are farm animals including chickens, cattle, dogs, guinea fowl, and dairy goats. Animals make noise and smell.

I honestly could not have had a better experience at this magical camp! The grounds were absolutely magical and picturesque. We pulled up to the site to a warm welcome from the owner Jerry, who was nothing but helpful and kind in every way possible. One of our very favorite experiences was our goat yoga that Heidi so perfectly accommodated with her award winning show goats. We spent some time up in the doe garden practicing yoga and acro while the goats hung around and even came up for kiss or nuzzle every once and a while. They have a HUGE guard dog who is the sweetest polar bear you can imagine. All of the animals on this farm are gorgeous and so well kept. Down at the camp site (just a short walk away from the goats) we had acres of land to explore and inhabit. There is large river that runs along side the site that is poetic and peaceful. We found endless places to put our hammocks and hang to enjoy the nature. The site includes an awesome water pump, a picnic table, fire pit, and outhouse. The hosts were beyond accommodating but also very respectful of space and weren't noticed at all. They provided us some drinking water, fire wood, hot coco and Heidi even gifted me some home made soap from the goats milk. The site is just 30 minutes from the sequoias (a must see) and surrounded by countless hikes and trails. Our whole group had an amazing experience and we think anyone who discovers this gem is going to as well. 10/10
We had such an amazing time at the Riverside Ranch. 7 of us loaded up from Orange County and spent the weekend camping at the Riverside Ranch. The weather was warm but having the river just a few steps away kept us cool! Heidi was so nice and accommodating. Made our experience very easy. If you are looking for a little getaway near Sequoia National Park this is your spot!!
This place is such an underrated gem. Heidi and her husband have really done a wonderful job with the space; they’ve made a deck and outhouse, there are picnic tables, and even a little checkers table and benches. The spot is right below the farm and you can hear the rooster and goats, so definitely keep that in mind if you’re a light sleeper. Heidi was so warm and welcoming and we got to meet her chickens, goats (and baby goats!!) and her Saint Bernard, Bobo! She is such a sweetheart and even lent us a vacuum when we had a slight ant problem in the trunk of my car. Will definitely be coming back to visit! ❤️❤️
We loved our stay here! The grill, tent platform, outhouse, hammock and creek were all big pluses. Way nicer than a packed public campground- Heidi even drew us a map to a secret swimming hole. A++++
My friends and I loved this camp site. Plenty of room on soft sand to setup all of our tents. Fell asleep at night to the sounds of the river water. Woke up to sounds of farm animals in the morning. Used the gas grille to cook meals and eat on the picnic tables. Felt secluded the entire time. Short drive to Three Rivers town where we went to a brewery and a diner for dinner one night. I would stay here again for my next group trip to Sequoia. Highly recommended!
