     Trees, rocks, wild flowers, hiking, and wildlife viewing can all be enjoyed right from your campsite, inside a 40-acre pasture on this historic ranch property.  Tucked in the back of a small meadow area, that is surrounded by trees and rock piles, this site is suitable for several tents and/or a couple of small to medium RVs.   It has easy pull-in access for your RV.

     The site has an iron patio table and 2 chairs, a couple of spool work tables and fire pit barrel.  There is an abundance of dry firewood for scavenging  bring a saw if you'd like), or you are welcome to bring your own portable propane fire pit.  Nearby is a portable toilet. If you would rather not cook, there is Zoka’s restaurant 10 miles north in Pine, the Bucksnort Saloon one mile north of Pine, or Deckers Corner 9 miles south, all serve excellent food, beer and cocktails.  

     The Pony Meadow site is $35 for 2 guests, and additional guests over 12 yrs. are $10/guest.  Well behaved off-leash pets and free-ranging children are welcome, do please pick up after them.  You can sleep soundly knowing you (and your horses if you bring them) are secure inside 40 acres of fenced pasture. 

     Walk or ride out the School Yard gate just west of the camp to access hiking and horseback trails.  Our Camp rests at the base of its namesake, Little Scraggy Peak, with direct access to the many trails of the Buffalo Creek area via the 12.2-mile Little Scraggy Loop Trail.  Additionally, for trail riders there is an extensive network of horse trails that avoid conflicts with mountain bikers.  The ranch itself has several miles of trails to explore within the ranch’s fence lines that are restricted to hiking or horseback riding. 

     There is extremely limited cell service…for those with the right carrier, that stand in the right spot, with the correct arm in the air and a tin foil hat…do not expect to have ANY reception. 

PLEASE NOTE:  You will get to choose Site 2 during the booking process.  Give the page time to load the site map, then choose Site 2 by clicking on it.

We rented all. Four spots for camping. We couldn't have been more pleased. It was perfect for our group. We also purchased the pony experience which had my little girl in pony heaven. We will definately be back.

We had so much fun here! The meadow was spaced out well, very clean, and had lots of area to drop our camper, and for the kids to run and play. We took the trail marked with ribbons past the schoolyard gate (back of camp) and connected with the Little Scraggy Loop trail which was a great hike. The camp site was easy to find, and our host was very helpful with questions. We will definitely be back to explore more of the Pine area!

Easy to find and friendly hosts. The property is beautiful! Lots of trails through woods and meadows along a little stream. There is an outhouse and an abundance of firewood. I believe there's a grill and water bin in the middle of the campsites however there was a large group camping in that spot so it wasn't really accessible. Only a short drive to cheesman trailhead and cheesman Reservoir. My only issue with the property is that the four camping sites were all directly next to each other with no privacy at all. Verizon has no service at all T-Mobile has 4 to 5G
