And at the same learn about food and where it comes along with the effort it takes to raise food and process it. Restrooms - Our Restrooms are similar to Restrooms in the National Forest. Well ventilated Mens and Womens Outhouse. Showers - Our on demand hot water Shower is located in a 10'x 10' cedar floor Wall Tent within our camping area.  Activities - They say the best part of camping is sitting around the campfire at night; Wide open skies above you, the sound of coyotes howling in the distance. That stuff is real, not just fiction made up in spaghetti westerns, and that's why we have built a communal fire pit. Come on down and bring your harmonica, ukulele, guitar, djembe, or dobro! If staying up late and burning the midnight oil around the fire isn't your thing there are numerous other activities on the ranch to partake in. We have a horseshoe pit, numerous hiking and mountain bike trails nearby, and you can also take a tour of the ranch and learn a little bit about where our nation's food really comes from.

Japanese Cabin
Quiet and Peaceful
The Japanese Cabin was an absolutely beautiful getaway from the chaotic city. Well built and maintained with gorgeous views of the desert landscape and Heart Mountain. Just mind the yellow jackets present. They hung around the front deck but didn't hassle us. The groundskeeper and his dog are super friendly, I'm sorry I didn't catch his name. Delicious breakfast of pancakes and sausage worth getting up early for. 10/10 would recommend. :)

Big Quiet Tent Camping
Loved it!
I loved our stay on Rod’s land! It was quiet and peaceful. There was a little stream behind where we pitched our tent and it was lovely to relax and listen to. The stars stretch forever over the farm. Rod and Mickey were really awesome folks to get to know and they even recommended a great spot for swimming. My kiddos loved running wild and swinging in the hammocks, we will definitely return!

Big Quiet Tent Camping
I honestly can’t say how the camp is. I received a call from a gentleman asking if I knew how to get there, told him no. He went on to make me feel less than competent with his tone in questioning me, which I took offense to and became uncomfortable…found a sweet campground in town with the sweetest people and super clean showers and restrooms.
