Sudden Valley Ranch is a peaceful paradise.  This is a family farm - 138 acres with 1.5 miles of creek (the depth of the creek depends on Mother Nature - but you can typically find a swimming hole year round).  There are woods, hills, ridges and open pastures/hay fields; we sit in a large valley with beautiful views.  We have horses, chickens, 2 farm dogs and barn cats.  We have a large seasonal garden.  You may see wild life - deer, turkey, rabbits, hawks, eagles and raccoons.  

We offer 2 rustic tent campsites that are separate and private from our home and each other.  You may easily walk or drive to the campsites.  Each campsite has a private outhouse, and a fire ring with an ample supply of wood.  You have access to fresh well water through a spigot.  We have a four-man tent available for a fee.  Ticks are a concern during the month of June - you may want to bring bug spray.  

Warrenton is located about 30 miles north of Washington, Missouri.  Washington is a quaint town located on the Missouri River with several wineries in the surrounding area.  We are also about 24 miles north of Marthasville where you can ride the Katy Trail.  Hermann, Missouri is 34 miles southwest of us - another quaint town whose seven wineries produce about one-third of the state's wine. Big Joel's Safari and Long Row Lavender farm are both located in Wright City less than 10 miles away.  

Come and relax, read a book, draw/sketch/paint, or simply let the sounds of nature lull you to sleep.  We believe you will leave rejuvenated!   

There is absolutely NO HUNTING during your stay.

It was beautiful. We Camped there last night (early novemeber). The hosts were really kind and hands off, and the campsite was well equipped and cozy. The land is gorgeous and full of character. Just a warnig that it got a little cold at night this time of year and even with our decent cold gear we still got cold trying to sleep (bring either a ton of blankets or a 20° sleeping bag). If you are scared of cayotes (which u shouldnt be) then that would be my only reason not to stay here lol. They howled from dusk till dawn.

We only stayed a night, but it’s an obviously beautiful and special place that Randy and Melissa have made. We will definitely come back.

Super nice people and site. We stayed on the top site and loved having a campfire with the really large fire pit and supplied wood (bring a hatchet)
Great communications and welcome.
This top site was too tight to turn our 22 ft trailer around in but we were able to back in.

This is by far my favorite place to camp so far! You will not be disappointed.
1) Melissa and Randy were exceptional from the beginning. They are kind and don’t want to intrude, but if you talk to them they are really great people. You can tell they want to make sure you have a great time and have everything you need.
2) They have a supply box there which is incredibly handy if you forgot something or didn’t realize you needed something until you got there. 3) Each site has its own bathroom with lights and they are CLEAN!!!
4) They give you a large amount of wood to burn which made making the fire really fun.
5) You are surrounded by trees with plenty of options on where to put your tent. Plus you are pretty secluded so no one is around which makes it feel special.
6) The creek is fun to explore. We personally drove because we have a 1 year old, but you can walk no problem.
7) you have tons of room. There are multiple places to put your tent. They have log benches and stumps around the fire.
Just do it.

Beautiful place, the owners really made you feel welcomed. They had lots of things in the storage unit at the campsite. We loved cooling off at the creek, looking at the Beautiful horses and cooking dinner over the fire. They even provided plenty of fire wood. I definitely recommend checking this place out.

Beautiful property and kind people, but we were sent the incorrect address which led to a lot of confusion. Once we got there, we didn't realize that the road to the campsite was super steep and made us nervous driving it (we drove our built out RAM promaster). It was a beautiful view and quiet, but there were no showers (even though they are advertised on their description) and there were a bunch of ticks that crawled all over us and our dogs. They said that they were spiders and ticks were only around during the month of June, but we are still (2 days later) pulling ticks off of our dogs.
