This is a fantastic alternative to the standard rv Park. We were met by our host Joann on arrival and she helped guide us into our space. She was very friendly and helpful, knew where all the good local hiking, fishing and springs were as well. Toilets and showers were also available. Even a pool area if you don’t want to go to the springs to cool off. As this is ranch and equestrian training center, there were multiple stables and horses. Overall, a great experience and all the hookups for electric, water and sewage were close and easily accessible. We will definitely be returning to enjoy more of everything the area has to offer!

Black Horse Ranch was much more crowded than I expected but my site was huge. Plenty of room for my 40 foot motorhome and my vehicle. Side note: make sure you specify 50amp if you need 50amp hookups because they are limited. Joann is very amicable and was very willing to accommodate our needs. It was very quiet and peaceful. Downtown Umatilla is about 7 miles away so you are in the country but still close to groceries, laundromat etc...

We had an added bonus on Saturday morning...there was a competition in the arena and we got to watch some barrel racing.

Wonderful host! We encountered an issue with one of our hydrolic jacks and had to stay an extra night while we figured it out, and the host tried everything she could to help us! She asked all around the ranch for help, and made us feel calmed and welcomed! We are very thankful!

Joann was a very kind and accommodating hostess. Unfortunately, the property has a series of semi-permanent sites. A couple of questionable people were wondering around to retrieve their dog. Unfortunately, though Joann assured us the man was harmless, in this day and age, I do not need any questionable people around my children. We graciously left and Joann graciously offered to help us find another location and had all fees returned to our credit card. May not be the right place to bring a boat load of kids.

Friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Good location to explore Ocala National Forest from. Hookups were all new and everything was in great condition. Particularly liked that it was reasonably quiet with little road noise. Loved being surrounded by the horses.

What a cool place and kind host! When booking, didn’t realize this was a horse resort. Lots of great people there vacationing with their horses. The facilities where excellent, lots of spaces with full hook ups and 50 amp service! Bath house/showers were awesome. We’re not horse people so it was fun getting to see all the horses and activity around them. Got stuck in some sand pulling out, which was my fault, and immediately had 4 people and a truck helping me get pulled out and we were out in a jiffy. Can’t say enough about this cool place, will definitely be back!
