Magical place!
This place is absolutely magical. It exceeded all of our expectations. From the sauna, to the spacious kitchen, to the unbelievably beautiful surroundings, to the spread out campsites, to the hospitality from the hosts… I could not recommend this place more! Such a special weekend, and such a special place!

Beautiful Spot!
Beautiful property! Chris kindly gave us a walking tour of the campground for starters. Camping spots feel secluded but are a close enough walk to the bathroom/showers. The waterfalls on the property are beautiful, our pups had a blast swimming. The stars were so beautiful at night and the sunrise was breathtaking. Also everyone should give the outhouse a try haha. Thankful to Chris for accommodating us on such short notice. He was very responsive and helpful with any questions!

Serene Camping w/ a Hint of Luxury
Chris and Taylor have an excellent property that was wonderful for our December camping trip. The property itself is beautiful and serene and the facilities are great—from the outdoor kitchen to the sauna and hot showers It felt very comfortable. Arriving during the day is must to navigate the long road up—our AWD SUV did just fine on the roads.

Be back soon
We loved this place! The site was amazing, we had camp site #1 and the view overlooked the beautiful canyon. The hiking trails were excellent and the waterfalls were stunning, our dog splashed in the pools as we enjoyed the unspoiled natural scenery. We will definitely be back!

Awesome Atmosphere
We were traveling through California and were looking for a place to stay for roughly 8 nights and found Chris and Spirit Chicken Ranch while browsing Hipcamp sites. We didn't give him much forewarning but he was happy to let us stay. It is a 35-minute drive on a dirt road up and down and around but it was worth it. *Note: 4-wheel drive is helpful. Being the off-season we practically had the place all to ourselves and it was perfect. I can't stress how great this spot was. The outdoor shower/tub/sauna were amazing to come "home to" after exploring the surrounding areas, and the kitchen/communal area was cozy and accessible. There are hikes, waterfalls, some absolutely amazing trees, and our dog Gaia could run around to her heart's content. If we come back that direction, we'll be getting in touch with Chris again for certain!
