Magical Faerie Wilderness!
Chris was very flexible, welcoming and helpful in his description of the various camp site options. It was a very hot week just before July 4th, so he recomended we hop in the pond (clothing optional) to cool off before picking a spot. We were able to enjoy the afternoon frolicking with the fish and bullfrogs in the pond. The next day we hiked down to the beautiful newt populated waterfalls that also offered respite from the heat. Grateful for the escape to these beautiful lands! Thanks for sharing Chris! We hope to be back soon! Hopefully we’ll meet the ponies next time!

We loved our stay at Spirit Chicken Ranch! It’s such a unique property with tons of cool touches big and small, like the amazing bath house and kitchen and all the cute little details you discover around the property. The swimming holes are small, so for us they were more places to take a dip than all day hang out areas. We so enjoyed spending time in the huge bath, on the decks and in the campground. Chris is a helpful and communicative host. We’ll be back!

Secluded little gem!
Really cool and interesting property with lovely amenities and kind fellow campers. We camped during an exceptionally hot time (107 to 115 degrees) — cooled off a bit in the evening and our spot was incredibly private, overlooking a beautiful range of hills. There’s a short walk down the hill to a gorgeous waterfall and cold little swim spot, but the shady spots and taking cold showers every 30 minutes saved us. We drove Honda Fit to camp and I think we were slightly pressing our luck with such a low car — people are not kidding when they say the dirt road to get to the place is LONG, but extremely secluded and so lovely. We brought our dog as well, but the summertime burs and foxtails were a challenge — definitely something to be aware of. Overall a lovely experience!

We loved the spirit chicken ranch!! It was such a special place, with an awesome Sauna and tub, such a friendly host Chase, beautiful views, and some hiking trails around. Would love to come back one day!

Chris and Chase was very responsive and informative. The land has all the required remoteness (no city sound) but close enough to town if you need last minute supplies. It also comes with amenities such as hot shower, toilet, kitchen, hot sauna and wifi which made it easy for some of our first time campers. There are lots of short hike around the property to streams and waterfall. campsites are spread out and lots of shade for the hot weather.
