Luxury Tent - Deluxe
It is a great spot for family and just like other reviews said, people are basically one by one next to each other and you can hear all the conversations through day and night. The pool was not heated like it stated, and a bit cold when we were there under a not so sunny day. Overall amenities are great for families with kids, hot shower, playgrounds, fire pits and etc.

Great stay, odd predicament
Tent was wonderful and set up was great. We were a bit closer and more enclosed than expected. We also got the tent from all the kitchen set up run off, felt a bit weird seeing it settle under our tent. Amenities were great. Kids loved the playground and pool. Nearby stores! Power did got out in Carmel 2 of the nights, but that was not the venues fault.

Very nice campsite with many amenities. Weather was perfect and although we didn't go with children, different activities was available making the property ideal for families so would highly recommend.

Cozy Cabin 10 called "Garland Ranch
We enjoyed our time at SMR. The cabin could have been cleaner though. Other than that great stay.

Would definitely come back!
Saddle Mountain Ranch was a great place to camp with my friends! Staff was friendly, directions to campsite were clear, and the entire layout of the place was clean and easy to navigate. Would definitely come back to stay again!

We had such a great stay at SMR! Nice place to camp with your pups and we loved taking the trail up before sunset for some pretty sweet views!
