Each campsite at Ascension Ranch offers unique getaways, and Oak Savannah is certainly one of a kind. Drive up to your site, then stroll through the countless oak trees to find your favorite tent and hammock spots, then, kick back and relax! This site is situated in our lower pasture, more centrally on the 100 acre ranch than other sites which provides guests easy access to walk and visit sheep, goats, horses, and other ranch animals. We often have horses grazing around this pasture, offering a one of a kind experience for animal lovers. Just a short stroll from the site, you'll find a gate leading to the many trails we have access to, including access directly to Folsom Lake. 

With direct access to hiking, biking, and horse friendly trails that lead to, and around Folsom Lake, we encourage guests to bring all their toys ... think about bringing light weight paddle boats, water floats, fishing gear, binoculars, hiking gear, mountain bikes, and of course your horses.

Pros: very private, pretty drive, friendly horses and dogs, somewhat close to white water rafting areas. Friendly on site guy met us when we arrived.

Cons: difficulty communicating with host—could not reach host via hipcamp app and it took a couple tries over the phone, site was very dry and dusty—savannah is not an understatement, lake was very very very very marshy/muddy and NOT appropriate for swimming—we came on a hot weekend expecting to cool off at the lake, we paid for horseback riding that was not available and only told when we arrived. We paid for a Mule but not many roads upon which to drive it and it didn’t function entirely well. We loved the big ranch dogs but they barked throughout the night and anyone not fond of dogs may have found them intimidating. Horses and dogs hang out looking for food at your campsite a good part of the time. Lots and lots of poop. Also they began excavating the field near our site pretty early which was loud but we had already decided to pack up and leave at that point. We left after 1 night even though we had 2 booked. Mainly due to the heat and the fact the lake was not an option. Not sure if we’ll get a refund for horseback riding or night we left early.

Oak SavannahThe ranch dogs made themselves at home.  Luckily our little dog and us LOVED them.Horses roam in this area.  They are very friendly.

For horse and goat lovers

The Ascension Ranch is a huge property. We stayed in Oak Savannah the campsite closest to entrance not far from the horse stables and goat enclosure. For any prospective guest worth knowing that the horses and many many goats roam freely throughout the camp. It seems like people often feed them bc they beg for food and are persistent in searching for it. There is horse and goat manure everywhere and you’ll need to keep your stuff in your car most of the time. Parents do beware when letting little kids roam- we had a momentary scare when one horse bolted unexpectedly near pre-schoolers by our site. We also had an overly friendly horse show up at our campsite at 9pm and act more like a raccoon in search of food, knocking over containers and not at all intimidated by people trying to move it away. It or another horse came back in the middle of the night and knocked more things over and got into the trash. How you feel about goats and horses will dictate how you feel about the campsite. We loved that it was walkable (sadly a much longer walk bc of the drought) to the lake. The trees were beautiful and our site was big and the sites were really well spaced out, we could see another one in the distance but nothing compared to a typical site. They had a super long and nice picnic table. The porta-potty was a pretty gross and while it had notations of regular cleanings until June. On our visit on August 1, it appeared not to have been cleaned or emptied since. Bottom line, we left happy following our one night stay.

My group and I were very content with Oak Savannah. We were especially grateful with how kind and helpful the owners were. If we needed anything, we could text them, and they'd answer right away. Also, someone in my group ended up with a dead car battery. The owner took time out of his day to come give them a jump!! Above and beyond!

Pros:
- Responsive, helpful owners/hosts
- Flat, well-shaded camp site
- About a 12 minute walk to the lake (15+ on the way back)
- Isolated, saw very few people
- Goats!!!!

Cons:
- VERY hot ... bring lots of water, and I'd recommend a pop up (or two) just to extend the shade that the camp site already provides
- Porta-potty is a little gross ... but that's mostly to be expected. Bring your own toilet paper

Very beautiful private setting. This is really boondocking, starting with a picturesque 10-mile (paved) drive from the highway and then another mile-or-so on a private dirt road to reach this special setting. This site was nearby the horse corral. We were visited a couple of times by the horses; but they gave up on us when we didn't feed them : ). Wild turkeys in the background. Direct access to trail that leads to Folsom Lake. If you want to get away from it all, this is a lovely corner of "Paradise."

Really enjoyed our stay at Ascension ranch! Awesome property and was really fun to see the horses grazing around our campsite (also had some goats who came by on our last day!). The sites were pretty far apart which was nice and made things feel more secluded. The hosts were very nice, and also very helpful as we ran into some trouble with our trailer. Overall, really fun property and look forward to future visits!
