Relax in our small yurt instead of pitching a tent on our peaceful Sis-Q Ranch Tent Camping site! The small 14' yurt was custom designed for the ranch and holds from 1 - 4 campers on a futon or provided cots. Our tiled bathrooms and hot showers have been a big hit with our campers!
Sis-Q Ranch is a small working ranch that is 9 miles from the nearest town of Fort Jones (Population 660). The yurt and 3 tent sites are shaded most of the day. It is filled with wild birds and other wildlife surrounded by hundreds of agricultural acres. Cougar, bear, coyote, bobcat, raccoon, skunk, etc are our local neighbors. We are quiet, secluded, and off the beaten path. We are family & pet friendly. Our night sky has been rated as the darkest possible providing an absolutely exhilarating view of our universe!
Sis-Q Ranch is located in the mythical State of Jefferson. If you love the outdoors, you can hike the beautiful Marble Mountain Wilderness, explore forest trails on your mountain bike, or drive/cycle the historic roads and byways of Scott Valley. Fresh water swimming is accessible on our Scott River or nearby creeks. If you love history, Scott Valley has opportunities to learn more about our two local native American tribes: the Shasta and Karuk. Scott Valley was formerly known as Beaver Valley by the Hudson Bay Trading Company. In the early 1800's, a military outpost, named Fort Jones, was established and the entire area became active during the Gold Rush with farming and logging as mainstays. Many historic sites are found in and around the local communities of Fort Jones, Greenview, Mugginsville, Etna, and Callahan. The Fort Jones and Etna Museums hold a lot of interesting information. They also are famous for their fabulous collection of rocks and minerals. You could give the camp cook a break by dining at one of our several excellent local dining establishments.
