Words cannot describe how awesome our trip was! We stayed in the valley since we were just there to hike and stargaze. We stayed for 4 nights and the first and last nights we were the only people camping. I will say if there were a lot of people camping, the sites are fairly close to each other so you wouldn’t have a lot of privacy. It would be great if you were camping with a group of friends! The stars were amazing. The valley is so quiet and close to amazing hikes. Our hosts gave us wonderful recommendations of places to check out. Lost Valley was our favorite, we went twice! We will definitely be back! We plan to come in the spring of next year when the waterfalls are active. Thanks for the awesome spot!

Definitely a ‘must book again’! We found ourselves wishing we had booked a longer stay. The property is absolutely beautiful and sprawling and the hospitality is unrivaled. Stephanie is amazing. We stayed Boxley Valley and were able to enjoy wildlife, the beautiful hills and valleys, and stunning night sky with very little surrounding artificial light. I am not a bird watcher but I would say this is probably a bird watchers dream. Over in the main ranch area where we were able to view the Buffalo and some other scenic areas of the property. The directions were spot on and had no trouble finding the spot. Thanks again Stephanie for being a spectacular host and showing us just how magic Wilderness Rider Buffalo Ranch is! We will be back as soon as we can!

This place was fantastic. I didn't have an OHV so all I did was hike the trails. There is so much land and great views with multiple waterfalls on property. The hosts very kind and gracious. 10/10 I will be going back.
