The property borders a small creek and has abundant trees, and wildlife. Beautiful views from every vantage with a high field on one half of the property and a low bottom land near the creek where there are many options for a relaxing, private stay. Chose big sky or a more secluded spot. Incredible wildflowers on display in the spring. The property is not bordered by close neighbors or dense housing, just more land so sunsets and rises are wonderful and open. Low ambient light pollution at night means the stars are very bright (and so are the fireflies)! If tent camping please do not bring glass containers, also you must pack out all garbage and waste.

Serene, beautiful, and tranquil.
On the way over, we saw nothing but farm/ranches with cows and on occasion, horses. It was green everywhere and we drove mostly on Farm to Market Roads although there were quicker ways to get there. As we drove up the driveway, Aaron was there with a very warm smile to greet us, and we were very lucky to meet one of his bloodhounds.
Next, we followed a path just recently mowed that led us to our campsite. Because it is "land", it was bumpy but not horrible. You're on a ranch, not a highway. It wasn't anything to be concerned about (I have a Honda Element). As we are driving down the path, all we can see is more green pasture and oak trees welcoming us. The land "dips" and so the camp sites are not visible to Aaron.
Right now, although the trees are bare, we felt as we still had more privacy than camping at some of the parks. The ranch is beautiful, quiet, and serene. It's a great way to decompress, stargaze, or just hang out yourself and/or with friends/family.. Because of the layout and a focus to keep the ranch as a "natural environment", it makes sense to limit the # of people as in the description provided.
As far as the surroundings, there is land and more land and lots and lots of cows. There are two "larger" towns within 20-25 minutes to get groceries or a bite to eat. For us, it was such a nice drive, that it seemed quicker than that. There are are also State Parks within approx 30 mins.
About the host, Aaron came by the first night just to make sure we were okay and to see if anything was needed. He is an overall great guy and easy to interact with. He respects your privacy and is available by text (we didn't need to contact him).
We will def be repeat visitors!
