Beautiful open land
A beautiful spot with a ton of open space! Hosts were accommodating and have plenty of amenities for RV camping. We would recommend hiking up to the top of the plateau and feeding the horses!

Beautiful, quiet location. One of the prettiest areas of Kansas along the Saline River. Chad was willing to help when we had some RV issues. Would definitely recommend and/or stay there again.

Beautiful Secluded Camping
I absolutely loved our stay at C2T Ranch! Chad was super helpful giving directions to the camp site as we got in late. The area was quiet and serene. I especially enjoyed taking my dog and letting him off the leash. I am excited to visit again and see the landscape in the spring. This is one of my favorite spots in Kansas!

Beautiful spot and the bed was super comfy and warm (I was there in October so warmth was important). Very nice sunsets and places from which to watch them. Every night the coyotes were singing. The Tuttle's we're friendly, knowledgable, and welcoming. I would go again!

Great site with excellent hosts! Coyotes in the background at night, big open spaces for the dogs, and lots of firewood to enjoy throughout the night. Chad and Cynthia also provided us with great information regarding propane refill stations nearby. Will definitely visit again if I'm in the area!

Glamp tents were super nice with a REAL mattress...not an air mattress. Campsites we're clean. Very quiet campground with secluded sites spread far enough apart to have your own space. And best of all, our dogs were permitted in the tents!

Beautiful setting along the Saline River and at the base of some impressive bluffs that look out along the river valley. Miles and miles of trails to explore on the bluffs and around the camp and farm. Everything was very clean and in great shape. You're on a working farm, so expect to hear a cow or two, some excited turkeys, and maybe a dog barking a bit, but that's not a bad thing! Coyotes will serenade you to sleep...

Camping with kids
This was our kid’s first time camping and they had a great time. We had a nice camp site with a sandy beach that the kids could explore. They also enjoyed the swing at the site. We took opportunity to do a Ranger tour of the Saline River that the kids found adventurous!

Very beautiful area along the Saline River. Chad and Cynthia have a beautiful property that they graciously share letting us camp for a weekend. The hosts are very friendly and escorted us to our campsite. The view was amazing and an incredible relaxing location. Would definitely recommend staying for a weekend!

Wow! We honestly felt spoiled. A guide met us at the entrance & took us to our campsite & showed us around. #45 is the furthest away but the closest to the waterfall hiking trail & cattle. The cows were great neighbors. We were able to watch them walk down to the water to drink. We checked out every campsite for a return trip & all of them have gorgeous views & well maintained. I love that they offer extra excursions. We did the hiking trails & got to see a lot of the grounds. Next time we will definitely do the ATV tour of the grounds. It was hard to leave this place.

Amazing property, and wonderful hosts! The tents were great even in below freezing with the heater and blankets they provided. Wonderful hiking up the hills to overlook the property and watch the sunset.

Camping with small kids!
We loved the simplicity of our stay! We arrived late and our beds were made and ready at the Sunflower Yurt! It was a REAL bed!!!! So comfy and the bedding smelled so clean and fresh! They even provided an air-matress with bedding for our young boys and a space heater to take off the chill! The view in the morning was absolutely spectacular! We loved the quiet, the hike, the view, the cattle and the horses! The area is clean and welcoming! And the hosts were so easy to communicate with and accommodating!

The ranch was beautiful and certainly a hidden gem. The rock cliffs and leaves changing to fall color was something we will never forget. The night time coyote howls were awesome echoing in the hills. Stars were so bright. Walked the trails and river exploring. Chad and Cynthia were wonderful hosts. Clean and separated camp sites. Definitely going back. Felt like Wyoming.

Gorgeous views and campsites
This is such a special site in Kansas. We’re grateful for hosts to share their amazing cliff views with us. Our son had fun seeing the animals and digging for fossils along the river bed. Our campsite, Wanda’s Place, was perfection. Chad was very helpful and we hope to be back again someday!

We had a great time! My bestie and I took out boys and our dogs for a quick adventure and C2T did not disappoint! The host even came to our rescue when the only lighter we had wouldn't work.

Wonderful spot!
I was just passing through but wish I had more time to spend here! What a beautiful spot! Right by the river. Lots of big shade trees and the night sky was sooo incredible without a bunch of light pollution! Chad met me when I got there, took my to my campsite and then it was all mine. Highly recommend!

An amazing camping experience! We stayed for 1 night in our 5th wheel and wish we could have stayed longer. This is the perfect pit stop to or from Denver. The scenery was breathtaking, the campsites were spacious, we booked for Tranquility but upon arrival Chad suggested we take Wanda’s since is is more scenic and right next to the river, and no other guests were staying that night. We had a great time even though the drought had the river at really low levels, we hiked a bit, had a great fire with complimentary wood, listened to the owls, coyotes, crickets and horses. In the morning we woke up to the cattle in the river in front of the camper. Our kids enjoyed the tree swings and our dog had a blast off leash. Thank you Chad and Cynthia for an awesome stay! We can’t wait to come back!
