The Maple Creek Ranch and Tree Farm has been family owned and operated since 1934. The patriarch of the family, whose family had moved here from Sweden, had a great love of the forest and trains. The property was one of the first certified tree farms in California with the goal of nurturing a healthy forest. In the 1960’s, a mile of railroad tracks was laid and the whistle of a small, steam engine train could be heard throughout the community. Local residents and kids were treated to free train rides and special events for many years. There is a natural spring with a small creek that supplies the ponds with fresh water year around. There is also a small canyon on the property with a larger stream called Mud Creek. The land is rich in Indian history and there a artifacts and other signs on the Indians presence. The Cohasset area is relatively unknown. 15 miles from our property is Deer Creek and the Lasson National Forest is about a 2 hour drive north.   While staying with us you can pitch your tent on our private 500 acres. We have 2  primitive camping spots on our property. Each spot has a picnic table and fire pit. There is a flush toilet shared for both camp sites. * During freezing weather the toilets may be closed so they don’t freeze! Please check before booking  *The spots are spread out to ensure privacy. Our property is surrounded by the forest and is loaded with deer, squirrels, turkeys and other forest animals. We have numerous walking trails, a fresh water pond for fishing and swimming. Please notify us if you have an RV.  Site 1 is best for RV's. Site 2 can accommodate smaller RV's. We look forward to meeting you!

Site 1 - Forest Camping
Beautiful and peaceful pond and great amenities. Outdoor shower by the pond was much appreciated as it’s a pretty dusty area. Flushing toilet near both camp sites was an added luxury. Although the pond is a decent distance from the campsites, there are several places to park if you need to bring a lot of gear and choose to drive down to that recreation area. Our only minor regret was not knowing we’d be sharing the pond area with an AirBnB. My sister and I had booked both campsites under the mistaken impression we’d have sole use of that area. As we both have young dogs, we were sensitive on encroaching on others with our talkative pups and therefore did not use the pond area as much as we would have liked. Wonderful friendly owners.

Gorgeous
We have a small RV and family has a pop up tent trailer. We had so much room. Stars were amazing, quiet peaceful days and nights. The pond was amazing for the grandkids. They fished, paddled boats. It was a wonderful place to go. We hope to make it our yearly place. Thank you

The Hipcamp is a cute little place on Kristen‘s property. We utilized the pond, appreciated the flushing toilets and showers, and ability to bring our pet! My family had the most fun fishing all day ☀️

Great experience
We where able to fit a 28' mini winnie, and a tent trailer in the site..incredible set-up, (fire ring, e-z up and chairs where provided). Communication with host was fast and easy. The flush toilet was a godsend..A short walk to the pond was well worth it fishing,swimming and water toys are just incredible. A total gem. Thank you for providing this look into your property.

A gem
I almost don’t want to write a review because I don’t want people to know about this gem and then it get too crowded to book again lol. It was, quiet, private and had really nice amenities, including a steam train for the kids and a little pond to kayak on. This has been my favorite camp ground so far.
