5D Ranch in Navasota TX. is an owner operated ranch located in Navasota that has opened its doors to the public.  We have a quiet place to pitch a tent under the trees with sandy soil or stay in an RV or even a truck camper. We have 19 primitive campsites available at this time with a variety of  campsites from totally secluded and surrounded by trees or some trees with a great view. All the descriptions of the sites are at the bottom of the page. 

Are you looking for some fun country activities? The ranch is a great place to bring the whole family. Come enjoy a day of swimming or fishing  in one of two water spots. Our pond and lake are both  stocked with bass and perch (catch and release only).   Or, if you're not into water, we also have beautiful, well marked, maintained trails for those of you that would rather go hiking. There are 400 acres with 14 miles of marked trails. Our trails are designed to go in any direction so you can go for as short or as long as you like, all without being more than 2 miles away from the check in area. We have tables and fire rings at all our campsites. With 20 campsites we have the perfect site to fit your needs and wants from totally secluded to having a neighbor that's not right on top of you. We have wanted campers to enjoy the country without be jammed up together. All of our sites are very spacious.  We also have a restroom and shower available and are in the process of installing solar panels in order to have lights and a hot water heater for  the shower.  Check out the site descriptions below to get an idea of all the different types of sites we have. I am sure we will  have the perfect site that will meet all your needs. 

General site descriptions:

Sites 1-6 are not private but very large and roomy. You will not feel crowded.

Sites 2-20 are private. They are vary in size and type so please be sure to read the descriptions below to find the site best for you.

ALL OUR SITES ARE ACCESSABLE BY VEHICLE(you can actually park your vehicle in the site with plenty room for your camping gear etc.)

Generators are allowed at all sites with a few restrictions at sites 1-5. 

Potable water is located at the restroom area.

Sites 2-5 are all large sites each with their own  picnic table, spool/table and  fire pit. They are  close to the restroom as well. These sights are all adjoining so you could possibly have a neighbor but these are big sites so you aren't crowded. Large enough for big groups. These  sites will accommodate an RV. 

Site 6 is a smaller site cozied up next to the woods but also gives you a great view of the sunset. Great site for a smaller group with some privacy. 2 spool/ tables and a fire ring is provided. Walking distance to the restroom. This site will accommodate a small RV. 

Site 7 is very private. Woods all around. A fire ring and spool/table and a wooden table is provided. Walking distance to the restroom. This is a great winter spot too because of the amount of trees.

Site 8 Totally secluded and big. The only people you might see are hikers or horse back riders coming down the trail in front of your site.  A fire ring and multiple spool/tables are provided. No RVs except very small pop up size trailers. You must be able to back in or out. 

Site 9  Extremely secluded and long. This site will really make you feel like your in the deep woods.

A fire ring and spool/tables is provided.  No RVs except very small pop up size trailers. You must be able to back in or out.

Site 11 is also very private other than the driveway that accesses the homestead. Great spot for big or small groups. Fire pit, multiple spool/tables and garbage barrel are provided at site. Its approximately 1/4 of mile from the restroom. Still close enough to walk. This site will accommodate an RV. 

Site 12 is very secluded.   Great for the Jeep campers with the fully contained tents or just the folks that want total privacy. Its a great spot for small or very large groups. Lots of trees and has a big open area. Lots of options for setting up your camp. Multiple table/spools and fire ring are available. This site is also very close to the large lake. This site will accommodate an RV however contact me before booking to verify if your RV will fit.

Site 13 is the closest to the Lake. Open view with a few  trees on 2 sides. You will have some shade at certain times of the day.  Has a beautiful view especially at dusk.  Multiple table/spools and fire ring are provided. Maybe 1/2 mile from the rest room. This site is also great for campers bringing their own horses because of the catch pens adjoining the site. This site will accommodate an RV of any size. . 

Site 14 is almost exactly like site 9 except goes deeper into the woods. Its  Very secluded with deep woods. A fire ring and Table/spools are available.  No RVs except very small pop up size trailers. You must be able to back in or out.

Site 18 is a large site yet very cozy, quiet spot that's easy to access from the main driveway and is a circle drive type site with trees in the center and its also surrounded by trees.

Excellent place to get out of town and camp! Very secluded and private campsites, makes you feel like you’re the only campers for miles!

We enjoyed our weekend at 5D ranch! The camp site was secluded & large! But not too far from the restroom. The big wooden spools were perfect for using as tables!! The kids loved fishing at the pond & kayaking! It did take quite a bit of work to clear the tall ground cover before we could set the tents up. That was unexpected. Thank goodness my husband packed a hatchet & shovel. However, this didn't seem to be the case for all the sites. Maybe we were just the first ones for the season on that particular site. Overall great experience! Hope to be back soon!

The whole experience was great, the host was very kind and helpful. Even with the camp grounds were almost all booked it was still quite, and we weren't bothered. We are defiantly coming back, and I think we had the best campsite!

We were in Navasota to attend a birthday party and decided to camp for the night. Although we didn’t have the opportunity to stay very long we enjoyed the short time we were there. Our campsite was very private. I hate it when places try to utilize every available space there is to bring in more people and then it seems you’re super close to one another. If you’re looking for privacy and quiet alone time with your loved ones that’s the place to go. We’ll definitely be going back.

Great place to get away that is very close to home. We wanted solitude with some big trees and that is what we got! The only time we saw the other campers was when we were hiking or in the common areas.
