Joan has a wonderful open space perfect for large gatherings. Air traffic noise is present but becomes part of the background. Light sleepers might bring ear plugs. Mosquito repellent is recommended as well. The link to the property did not show her address so we needed to text Joan separately for that.

We had a great time camping on the ranch. We especially loved wading in the creek nearby and the dogs were very cute & friendly :)

I read reviews about the planes and the noise, I barely heard them and the ones I saw were pretty cool! We enjoyed our time there, it was peaceful and beautiful.

Prompt responses. Nice property. Close to Austin. Clean porta and gazebo. Note planes fly over the property so could be loud when they do. Recommend the stay.

This place was great. Exactly what I expected from the pictures, description and the reviews. A great option to scratch the camping itch if state parks are booked. My favorite parts were getting greeted and escorted to our campsite by buddy the dog, the horses in the pasture and at one point a fighter jet flew right over us! Super fast and loud! I wish it was quieter during the day, but can’t expect that based on the locations proximity to the airport (flight path) and surrounding businesses (landscape supply). All in all a good spot, can’t complain when you’re out in nature and by a river

Our stay was less than ideal, but it seems like it could be a really nice venue/site for the right situation.

-Beautiful ranch
-Lots of sites
-Very close to Austin

-Way too expensive for what you're getting
-Were not given any information without explicitly asking for it
-Ant hills everywhere, lots of bugs
-Kind of felt like we weren't supposed to be there. No other visitors at the time, lots of workers working on something, and we were never checked in with. We even saw the host, but they didn't really acknowledge us.
