This expanded campsite is similar to our simple Songdog Campsites only bigger! The shaded table area is twice as big and will accommodate 8 people easily. The Privacy is greater with the nearest campsite being 150 feet south. the site has more room for you and your friends to spread out. And last but not least, two firerings. One for cooking and one for social. It really is twice the site. Perfect for an overnight Pow Wow with your tribe.

If you are in need of more sites to accommodate a group larger than 10, you can book the surrounding campsites and have the entire east end of the mesa all to yourself. Just book all the Songdog East Campsites at maximum capacity for a total of 32 persons and have plenty of room to wonder around and visit with your friends.

Another fantastic weekend at Songdog Ranch. This is probably the 4th time my group has come here and we always leave refreshed and filled from the stark beauty of the high desert and the amazing sunsets and star gazing. Jim is an awesome host who is helpful and kind but also always respectful to let groups have their privacy and space. He keeps building new sites but we love the Double Fire with the extra shelter space and wide camping area. Ample firewood available with a great fire pit and wood burning grill which we made use of this time and had a killer Saturday night feast.

Thanks again Jim! See you soon!!

Wicked wood burning grill.

Jim was great! He was very responsive and very helpful with his suggestions. His 2 dogs are the best part of the whole trip! They are just AMAZING.
The camp ground was very spacious and very well set up.
A great place to enjoy the stars and the quiet..

Booked Double Fire for the first time this past weekend. The space was great and we all had a blast! Definitely better for bigger groups! We had about 8-10 people and we still had tons of space.

Also, if u ever need firewood, Jim has a large stock (where the windmill is) that you can purchase.
$1 per log. Just leave the cash in the mailbox where the logs are located!

Jim was such a great host! Super friendly and accommodating- he even gave us some firewood and kindling. His firewood was super high quality. It lit so easily and we were able to make huge fires with it. Make sure to bring some cash if you want to buy firewood/kindling/Firestarter from him- $1/log and he provides great kindling and some Firestarter included in that price.
The site was super relaxing- very quiet and not too close to other sites. I could only see 2 other sites from ours and they were a good distance away and hidden behind trees. At this large site, there were also some amazing lounging chairs provided. They were so comfortable and looked handmade!

We really enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back with friends. Great night skies, sunsets, and vistas. Lots of peace and quiet.

Great camp spot that provides everything you need! The picnic table, shade structure, bbq, fire pit, chairs, and trash cans were helpful and in good condition. Being able to buy firewoood there was also really convenient. Would definitely come again!

We were at the double fire site. It was a great spot, very spacious and up the mesa with sunset views and views of the canyon. In addition to the fire ring, there was a double Santa Maria style grill, which was great to cook more stuff at the same time. All in all a simple, well maintained, great place to camp.

Jim was such a welcoming host, and his quiet piece of land was the perfect way to get out of the city. He has a wide variety of meticulously maintained sites spaced out around the property that offer something to suit the needs of every kind of camper. We will definitely be back!

Great spot for car camping! Jim and his dogs were very friendly and it was easy to buy firewood. The site was huge and perfect for our group of 10. Site has 2 covered bench tables which were great for food and board games. The toilet was clean. Best part- the sites are spread out so no noisy neighbors! Definitely recommend.
