Tom helped us out on the ranch and was super. Being fairly newly opened they are still working on the sites, but there is a mix of offerings as far as amenities, sun and shade, etc. They are doing a good and fast job of perfecting them. Based on Tom’s recommendation and our needs with the two camper vans and being a bit closer to the porta-potty, we ended up moving to a different site than the one we booked and it was perfect. We’ll be back!

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful place to spend our weekend. We booked Site 4 Upper River and had plenty of privacy. Tom was incredibly kind and welcoming. Our son loved the mountain biking trails, our lab loved the river, and none of us wanted to leave. Thank you for a lovely stay!

We had a great time and Tom was a great host! We stayed on campsite 1 and 2. It was beautiful, very private and super close to the river! If you would like a better view of the river from your campsite, I would recommend campsite 3 or 4. We walked towards those two campsites and I think they have a nicer view since there are less plants/bushes on that side of the river. Overall we had an amazing experience!

I honestly don’t know where to start with this beautiful campsite, so I guess I’ll start from the very beginning. My boyfriend and I booked campsite 5 on the upper level with 2 bundles of wood. Obviously, we really wanted to start a fire, but when winds and temperatures started rising Rachel advised that upper level will not be able to start fires because of the heat and winds, so she asked if she could move us down to the campsite 5 lower level because we will be able to start a fire! Of course we said yes!

All I have to say is THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!
Its so magical! My boyfriend and I were amazed with all the land and natural beauty while we drove into the ranch. We saw wild turkeys while driving to our campsite and some adorable cows. Once we got to our campsite (5) both of our jaws dropped. We were surrounds by greenery and water. The river was so close to our campsite. Campsite 5 has shade and very private. Campsite 4 is a good distance away from campsite 5.

Tom (host) was the TREMENDOUS! He advised about the porter potty and how it’s been COVID 19 clean, let us know about all the critters and gave us a fire starter pack. He was so kind and helpful.

1. First night we started a fire and made carne asada tacos, listen to river, laughed and watched the stars.
2. Second day we made coffee, walked around to the other campsites in the lower level because we were the only people there (which was so cool), saw cows, blew up our floaty for the river and chilled in the river all day. Tom came by to check on us which was so kind. He taught and brought my boyfriend tools to find gold. The river is so so clean and beautiful. We did not want to leave the river.
3. Second night we made hotdogs, play games and relax in front of the fire.
4. Morning before we pack up we woke up to cows everywhere. It literally was the most magical amazing experience we have ever experience. We literally watched cows eat drink water right in front of our tent. Sometimes they stared at us but they really are in there own world and don’t care about you. It was so cool. The babies were adorable!!!!

We had the best time of our lives. We never thought we could fall in love with a place but this campsite got us. We will totally go back and want to adventure out to other campsites. Especially upper!!

We had a wonderful weekend staying here and can't recommend it enough. Rachael was fantastic at communicating things during the booking process and lead up to our trip. Tom greeted us when we arrived and was very helpful and friendly during our stay. It was lovely and secluded and the riverside site was a perfect getaway and just what we wanted.

This spot is so lovely! Our puppy ran around so happily. We stayed at campsite 3. The river was so easy to access. The only thing to be mindful of is that there is very little shade at campsite 3. It got a little too hot around 3:00 - 4:00 PM, but we just ran into the river to cool off.

We loved this spot and how close it was it the river. Perfect for floating or gold panning! Tom was incredibly helpful and friendly. Will be back again!
