Enjoy a unique stay by the Stanislaus River! 

Five minutes from the town of Oakdale with lots of shade and beautiful green lawns for easy camping, you can experience a campsite like no other! The daytime can be filled with swimming, fishing, and rafting on the Stanislaus River, or just exploring around the many beautiful spaces on the Ranch. Then, in the evening, the entire property lights up and you end up in a magical wonderland of peace and tranquility. Secret spaces are a many on the property and there is tons of art to see everywhere you go, day and night. Flushing toilets and hot showers are on site (a total must!). The owner of the property is very friendly and always willing to give suggestions for fun activities, places to eat nearby, etc.

Please do not come to our property if you have not booked to stay there that day. We are always doing construction of some kind and have equipment running most days. This is not a park, or hangout spot. Too many people decide to just come by with friends or family and it isn't covered under our or Hipcamps insurance. Please book a stay.

Due to the high volume of visitors we have to move people around so that groups coming together can be placed together, or that we may be able to tend to certain areas of the property that may need some extra attention. We thank you for understanding and bearing with us! Can't wait to see you at Ozz Ranch!

This place is Amazing, unique like no other. Our site #5 was semi-private, large, beautiful green grass and flat grounds with partial shade. The beautiful view of the Stanislaus river was only a few yards across.

The campground is well maintained, unique with a jungle feel in some areas and whimsy in other areas. Lots of art and creative structures, statues, carvings. Lots to explore like tunnels, one which leads to the Hobbit Hole which is a common area with many carvings and unique seating, tables, a hammock, a large firepit, BBQ grill, fishing area and the a refreshing view of the clear Stanislaus River. Another tunnel leads to a small sandy beach and another tunnel is the main entrance that leads to a Zen like garden, Circle of Friends seating enclosure, a stage, swings, a nice open area with again unique carved seating, tables...and they even have a Treehouse.

Everyone was very friendly! Our main contact was Shane, he was very helpful and communicated very well, made our stay easy and pleasant. Thank you Shane!

This place is really a magical place with lush greenery and right next to the river. The owners are really nice. I liked my experience so much that I am already planning on going again in a couple weeks to celebrate my kids birthdays with all of my family.

Ozz Ranch was a truly magical Hipcamp experience. Oakdale was not a particular point of interest on my bucket list, but Ozz Ranch should be on yours! Myself and two of my close friends spent one night tent camping here. We rafted on the Stanislaus river and relaxed under the stars. Michael the host was very welcoming and the staff treated us like family. Be sure to adventure around the property and find the many "easter eggs" that await. Get ready to have your mind blown by the handmade wood carvings.

My only suggestion for Ozz Ranch is to consider adding another bathroom facility as two stalls may be too little for the amount of campers during busy season.

Thank you for hosting a magical outdoors experience!
