Offering a retreat from the business of town with stunning views of Kachemak Bay. We are a small family ranch/peony farm. We will offer space for a limited amount of guests around our ranch to try and make sure each person has their own space. This listing is for parking/tent/RV spaces. We also offer dry cabins but they must be booked separately. If available when you arrive we can upgrade you to one if desired. 

Pet(s) live on property - Black Lab, cattle dogs, Retriever mix, Multiple Horses, and cows. All animals are friendly and non threatening.

Amenity limitations - The cellular service is intermittent in our area.  limited Wifi. The bathroom/ shower is a separate building, a short walk from the camping area.Our shower has been having issues with hot water so if you need to use it let us make sure the water heater is still lit. (its propane).

Potential for noise - farm noises, ATV are used on the property, horses, cows, dog (we discourage barking but it happens) Kids playing, ect. We try to be respectful of our neighbors and guests, and aim to keep our activity quiet after 10pm to 7am, we ask that you do the same. Please, no parties unless you have made prior arrangements to rent the entire area. (which is a option) "Rowdy" disrespectful guest will be asked to leave. There is a wedding venue also on the far side of the property. Due to the nature of reception music often playing in the evenings I try to make sure guest are aware if a wedding is going to be happening during their stay.

This was a very relaxing place to camp and we had the whole camping area to ourselves! The flushing toilet and shower nearby was a bonus! Vikki is great at communicating quickly!

Even though we had to make our reservation at the last minute, Vikki was very accommodating. The camp sites were spacious and the gazebo covered fire pit was a Godsend during the on and off again rain. We greatly appreciated the access to good drinking water and a bathroom with plumbing close by. We were visited by an assortment of friendly dogs throughout our stay and we lavished them with belly rubs and ear scratching. The views were stunning and we would definitely recommend staying at Lazy J for a true Alaskan experience.

A bit outside of Homer but a nice little spot to camp overnight. Four grass spots to pick from. Communal fire ring, bathroom with flush toilet and shower. Some farm animals (horses, geese) nearby but separate from our space. Nice views too!

We had an amazing stay at Lazy J Ranch, and we would definitely return to this location for future visits to Homer, AK. They were very welcoming, and it was a great location.

This was a most awesome experience!! Our host was understanding that we were going to show up late. Vicki gave us great directions and we got our tent set up in the right place even in the dark!! The next day she showed us the grounds and our neighbors were very gracious and kind. We will be staying here again!!

Lazy J was quiet and peaceful, away from the traffic, wind, and bustle of Homer Spit or other in-town noise. Great spot, clean facilities, would camp here again!

Response from Vikki , the Host, on July 18th, 2020

Im sorry you had a negative experience with family members on the property. I stoped by your camp space multiple times during your stay and everyone seemed happy. This camping area is provided in the middle of family property, we offer it to share our home and experiences with others. We are not a traditional camping ground experience, we are a family experience, and we do our best to offer you comfortable accommodations and as much privacy as available on a busy farm. I would have liked to know exactly little kids could have possibly said to you in regard to making you feel bossed around. Its to bad you didn't bother making contact with me directly. It could have provided a learning experience for the kids if they were out of line, and definitely made steps to resolve the issue and reduced your negative experience.
