Amazing! So unique with everything we needed and more! The hosts and their staff were welcoming and friendly.

We tent camped in the garden. It was a little windy in November. There was an outlet in the garden for our use. The bathrooms are a stand-alone, adjacent building with stalls. There is a large commercial playground and an archery range! The gate to the ranch opens in the morning at 8am. There is a small pond in the garden that is not fenced off and could pose a danger to small kids.

Big sky views in an idillic chaparral landscape among the mountains. We got to see the ostriches up close and there were all these amazing ravens. We could hear other animals on adjacent properties.

I had an awesome stay..very friendly and informative hosts and ostrich hands. Ostriches are super cool and this hipcamp is only going to get better as time goes on!!! Saw some deer roaming and a flock of ravens that dominate the sky's.
