My new go to place for camping.
My new go to place for camping. It’s a clean place that’s secluded enough that you don’t have to worry about privacy. There’s a nice fire pit you can sit around with free fire wood. Clean porta-potty toilet on-site. And the host John is very accommodating and very responsive to texts. A very nice man in general. I’d recommend this place to my friends.
Beautiful property, John was an outstanding host. Would happily stay here anytime while in the area. We had a great time! Highly recommend this camping area to any and everyone thinking about staying at Gun Smoke Ranch.
Perfect hideaway! Gun Smoke Ranch was the perfect getaway! We spent two nights here and would have gladly hung around longer! John is a fabulous and thoughtful host. Stop looking and book this location now! You will not regret it!
One of my favorite places to camp!
As a stand alone campsite it's great. Both tent sites are under trees and shaded and have picnic tables. The port a potty is clean and well maintained.
My favorite part and easily the most unique is the on site gun range. John is a great host and easy to communicate with before we even arrived. The free dozen chicken eggs and fire wood speaks to his generosity. I would hands down recommend this place to anyone.
**bonus** It was a clear night and I was able to take some great shots of the sky. The gun range is wide open and has an unobstructed view of the sky from nearly every angle.
