Learn more about this land: This is a horse ranch so you can sleep in the company of horses or in the woods with them in the distance ( check if available/storm damage).We have rolling hills, beautiful views from the hill tops, valley with creeks and a waterfall when not in dry or draught and an abundance of wildlife. Also we're located 5-10 minutes from mammoth cave park border, hike, bike and horse trails, river, lake, blue holler atv park and so much more. If you are sensitive to animal noises you may bring earplugs. There isn't a bathroom/ shower house yet so we ask that you bring a port-a-pot of some sort. We're constantly making upgrades to the Ranch so we hope you enjoy your stay. Please refrain from feeding the horses or dogs because it creates a bad habit and folks that don't know how sensitive a horses gut is can possibly kill them. Respect privacy of others and pack out all that you pack in. Shut any gates you come through.please understand that my horses are of all ages and that includes young ones and babies and seniors as well. The young ones like to be nosey and are still learning what they are allowed to do and what not to do. They are naturally curious and love attention. If they think you have snacks , they can act like a pack of kindergarteners with the promise of cupcakes...we don't want that but because some campers think they are the exception and gave them snacks, it is something we have to monitor more closely. Remember they are animals and they will get into anything if it's left unattended. Please be a responsible camper and ensure we all stay safe and enjoy the experience.We have a section for folks to park in if they do not want to be so close to the horses as well. If you don't like horses or dogs please consider alternative camp site. Limited pet allowance...check before booking please. Also, we've had issues with the site and it offering horse time, ride, Q&A etc. for 5$. We've taken steps to fix this. But if you would like something like that it would be through the Ranch directly and as our time allows. Thank you for taking the time to read everything as well.

Dragonfly Ranch camping with horses
Dragonfly ranch was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Tonya was an incredible host and very thoughtful. From the moment we opened the gate we knew we were making core memories for our kids. Unbelievable sunset to end the night. And an incredible morning waking up to all her beautiful horses around our campsite. We hope to visit again!

A must “steigh” 🐎
Awesome site with gorgeous sunset views! The horses welcomed us and literally joined us for dinner and breakfast. Tonya welcomed us with her warm southern accent, and gave us lots of helpful hints for the area. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling in this area and we would absolutely go back! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Camping with Horses
We had an amazing time, my kids truly enjoyed time with horses. Just be prepared to see horses around 6am staring inside your tent. 😄Horses were really harmless and friendly we all love them, however be aware of your surrounding. Tanya was very welcoming, helpful, and friendly she let our kids to ride horses. We all had a great time ✨

Special Camping Trip
Our favorite camping experience by far. Staying amongst these beautiful horses and land made it such a unique and blissful trip. We loved waking up to the sunrise and horses, exploring the caves, then coming back to enjoy a calming sunset and campfire. Tonya our host was very welcoming and friendly. We went horse back riding the next day and loved every second of it! Her property is close to Mammoth Cave and a few other caves we explored as well. The stars at night were amazing to gaze at. Highly recommend staying here if you want a special camping trip away from all the hustle and bustle, but still close enough to attractions and amenities.

A Perfect Weekend
Dragonfly Ranch exceeded all my expectations by a long shot. I have camped all my life and raised my kids as campers. This was, everyone agreed, one of the best sites we have stayed. The horses are friendly and curious. We were surrounded by farmland, the sheep in the distance made it like a scene from a movie. We had a fire in the ring with the provided firewood. Next to our site, the frogs serenaded our group while we counted thousands of stars. Morning started with the horses coming over when they noticed us up. A fantastic time! As a bonus, we enjoyed breakfast at this tiny restaurant 3 minutes down the road. All of us want to come back!
