Fourth year in a row camping at Songdog. We love Jim and his gorgeous rugged ranch. A great secluded get away. We love that we never have close neighbors. Outhouses are well kept. And the campsites have everything you need.

This is becoming one of my favorite spots to get away to. This was my 2nd stay at Draw Camp and my 3rd overall stay at Song Dog Ranch. I will be back with friends at Thanksgiving staying in the Yurt. I strongly recommend heading out to the Cayuma Badlands to check out Jim's place, Song Dog Ranch!

I've lost count of how many times I've stayed at Songdog. 4 or 5 I think. It's fairly close to home (less than 2 hours drive), wonderfully remote, generally, reliably peaceful. I love Songdog. However. This most recent visit, on a Sunday, I was sharing the mesa with only one other party but unfortunately they felt compelled to loudly blast electronic dance music late into the night. I fired off my car alarm so as to give attention and say "hey I'm over here, trying to sleep, maybe you missed me" but little happened. Another sleepless night, alas. In planning my trip, I was hoping to escape such noise that I have to daily deal with at home. I work night shift, so finding restful sleep is a challenge but the jerks in the West Camp #3 the same night I was there really messed up my desperately needled quiet and relaxation.

Views were great. Host's dog was very loving and kept us company the entire night. Nice and quiet campsite with outhouse, running water, and picnic table!

Draw Camp at Song Dog Ranch was hands down the best Hipcamp my wife and I have been to.

Jim goes above and beyond to make your camping experience memorable.

The sunsets are next level. The cowboy tub is a necessity if it’s hot and man, was it refreshing.

Highly recommend. We’ll certainly be back.
