You won't believe you are still in Kansas! C2T Ranch is a working regenerative cattle ranch, with over 4 miles of Saline River running through it. Amazing 150' tall limestone cliffs rise above river and several spring fed creeks feed into the river. There is hiking galore in the canyons or on the cliffs, fishing in the rivers, or bird watching on the native prairie above the cliffs. Fossil hunters can find a variety of fossilized shells, as well as native septarian and calcite for the rockhounds. Our picturesque, secluded campground has primitive and powered campsites, plus several glamping tent, all dispersed along an amazing horseshoe bend of the Saline River, each with direct river access. We're only a 20 minute drive north of Hays, Kansas and I-70, come visit us today!

We absolutely loved this spot! Our dog found the creek approximately 30 seconds after we got out of the car, and she had a great time playing fetch in the large open area around this site. We happened to be the only people on the property, so we took a long walk, which was easy to do as they keep a wide path mowed. We saw markers for other spots, and noticed they've done a nice job keeping the sites large and far apart, so even if there had been other folks we probably wouldn't have really noticed. We added on burgers and would recommend that option. They bring them down raw so you can cook them to your liking. We are from the west coast, so the fire flys were a special treat. We could hear the coyotes howling, and the stars were magnificant. It's a really special place and we would definitely stay again if we're ever in the area.

Our stay was wonderful. There were full hookups, firewood and a fire pit. The views were astonishing and the farm animals being so close to us definitely made our day!

Most gorgeous campsite ever
We took a 5,600 mile journey (round trip) from Pompano Beach, Fl to Idaho and back. This Hipcamp was THE BEST! It was beautiful, private, hosts were off the chain amazing.. Had a pig roast and firework shows over the 4th of July and shared it with us. They brought firewood and were generous and gracious. I would drive all the way back to Kansas from South Florida just to stay on the most gorgeous 2,000 acres (yes, that’s right, 2,000 ACRES). Between the amazing camping to the hosts, Kansas was our instant favorite. Don’t miss out on this place. And ask for their MERCH.

We absolutely loved #42 Cedar Grove!!! We were traveling from Virginia to CO and alto I think CO speaks for itself, cedar grove was magical. I wish we could have stayed another night or in our way back! It felt so peaceful! I love the space between campers and the bluffs and river. The host was very kind and helpful! Everything was perfect!

Everything I hoped for and more!
This was so much more than I expected! I have never been to Kansas before, so I was not expecting much as I passed through the state. Wow, was I surprised by the beauty of this land and campsite! It had everything I needed, too. Chad met me when I arrived to show me my spot; I was nice and secluded; there was hiking across the creek; and everything was clean (including the potty!). The only bad thing is that it’s too far from where I live to camp there regularly.
