Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
Our retirement dream is to share our beautiful property with people who love the outdoors. We started with our rustic tent sites and slowly added cabins. We go from primitive to sites with heat and air conditioning. We are not far from the Interstate but sure seems like we are as you travel the 4.6 miles of gravel road to step back in time.

Site 2 - Rustic Tent camping
Loved tent camping here! There was tons of space, nice amenities, and gracious hosts. I especially loved the Halloween themed trail. Thanks for sharing your land with me!

Great Secluded Spot
Nice secluded spot to get away. Great views of the stars on the top of the hill if you’re lucky to get a clear sky. Host led us to our spot so there was no confusion.

A peaceful place. The small cabin is funky and in need of some screens on the windows to allow for better ventilation. But all in all I enjoyed staying here.

Enroute to Mt. Rushmore
My 18 year old grandson were on our way to Mt. Rushmore for his 18th birthday present. We stayed in the tall cabin. We had planned to stay in the log cabin, Hunter's Haven, but upon seeing the taller cabin with AC, a refrigerator & microwave, three beds (one up on a loft - that's where I slept), we opted to stay there (the day was very hot and humid when we arrived). Beautiful grounds. Very remote and gorgeous view of the night sky! I was tempted to sleep on the picnic table just to enjoy the stars more! God even treated us to a lightning show off on the far horizon which we watched for quite some time. Since I didn't know if the thunderstorms were heading our way I slept inside on the loft. We are from NJ and do not have such a big sky as they do here (too many hills and trees where we live). I love the solitude and quiet. Beautiful! Long dirt road to access the Ranch so be prepared to get your car dusty.

I will deffinetly be coming back with my kids and family and recommending this place to everyone. I absolutely love it out here.
