I would highly recommend camping at Tom Lee's place. My son and I had a great weekend and enjoyed the scenery as well as exploring the property. Tom Lee was a great host and we appreciated meeting him and learning about the ranch.

Camping at the Rocking W Ranch far exceeded our expectations! We were searching HipCamp for something off-grid, private, with views and hiking. The Rocking W Ranch delivered that and more! With our 4x4 / high clearance, Tom Lee directed us to the road that took us to the highest parts of his ranch. After driving to the top and looking around a bit, we selected a spot that had a phenomenal view of the valley below us and the mountains around us. From that base camp we spent the next 2 days hiking around the ranch, amazed by all the butterflies. We also spent time just sitting and listening to the peaceful silence, and enjoying gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. And the stars! Oh, my. We heard an elk bugle, and watched a mule deer walk right past our camp, while we were sitting in our chairs. We found other potential camping spots with fantastic views, so obviously we will need to go back and try them! As we were leaving, we had a longer conversation with Tom Lee about the ranch and the history. He is very knowledgable and clearly loves the land. Thanks, Tom Lee, for sharing your patch of heaven on earth with us.

This is a great place to camp for new campers. The owner Tom was very helpful in helping us find the entrance and directing us to where we could set up. We went in September and it was warm during the day but at night the temperatures drop quickly. If you are going up the mountain you will absolutely need a 4x4, otherwise a 2WD is fine for camping in the lower area near the house.

This was an amazing area to camp and enjoy the mountains, state park and surrounding towns! Tom Lee greeted us upon arrival in true Texan friendly style and gave us great direction on where to camp! The drive up the mountain was AWESOME but only recommend if you own 4WD! The views were amazing and spectacular! Gods county!

Tom’s place is out of this world. If you like a little adventure and breathtaking views his place needs to be a must on your list! Having the ability to explore the land and picking your own place to camp in something that has been lost in Texas but not here. During the day the views of the Davis Mountains are top notch and at night the star gazing is one of a kind. We had the Milky Way over is all night and so many shooting stars we lost count. The weather is always very mild so this is one of the few places that you can summer camp in Texas and not bake, with places like Balmorhea, The McDonald Observatory, and historic Fort Davis just down the road it’s a perfect vacation spot.

My only small complaint would be the amount of rocks, if you are sleeping in a ground tent make sure you really comb the area and get the rocks out of the way.

Tom is welcoming, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Views are beautiful from the peaks on his land, moderate off roading to get to peak. Great experience.

Tom was very accommodating and helpful with the property. Just a week before our stay the area had severe torrential rain storms that washed a few of his roads out some. A high clearence 4wd vehicle is a must for accessing the majority of the property, but there are areas to camp with a vehicle lacking these features. Unfortunately i learned while there that my vehicle has a vacuum leak and and lacked the power to get up some of the very steep areas it normally should have been able to make it up, but we found a really lovely area we were able to access with really lovely views, huge night sky, and many lightning bugs that came out to greet us before bed. A really special and private camping experience, and I'd love to make it back to access the rest of the property when i get my car taken care of
