The Big Laurel Cattle ranch is situated at the base of the Laurel gorge and has been in our family for four generations of farmers. Our property contains 370 acres of rolling pasture fields and quiet woodlands. Nestled amongst the peaceful hills are jagged rock cliffs, beautiful vistas, waterfalls, and rock formations. The woodlands are undergoing transformation as we continue an ongoing forest rehabilitation project to return our land to its natural state as a deciduous hardwood forest. Spotted on the farm is an amazing abundance of wildlife including wild turkeys, white tailed deer, pileated woodpeckers, bobcats and red tailed hawks.

Reformed Hunting Cabin
The cabin was cozy and peaceful and very remote. Just the complete off grid getaway I needed. The hosts were very responsive and helpful and provided me everything I needed for a great stay. Plenty of hiking and things to check out on their beautiful land as well.

First Hipcamp - Won't be the Last
What a great experience from the peaceful drive along country roads to Jo and Chris' ranch to the beautiful vista from the porch of the cabin. Jo's directions were perfect, and their online description of the property is complete and accurate. It is a little walk to the cabin and it is uphill so plan accordingly and don't overpack like me LOL! The cabin and outhouse were clean, the cots were comfy, and there are so many places to explore right outside your door. My pup had a blast and is probably going to sleep for days. I definitely plan on returning for another weekend this fall at the Reformed Hunting Cabin.

Stargazing, Animal Friendly
With every turn of the country road, we knew it was going to be more secluded. After receiving a warm greeting by one of our hosts, we were directed to our parking spot. The map was super helpful in points of interests and hiking trails. He was very thoughtful in catering to our hobbies such as fishing and boating. We trekked up the hill to the site. I suggesting packing light as this was a moderate walk and I completely overpacked. Still worth the trip to the car for my telescope, as the skies were clear and no light pollution at all. The site offers basic amenities such as cookware, a few camping chairs, two worn heavy duty chairs for porch (or inside cabin, if preferred), cots, a swing, lanterns and the luxury of a compost toilet. We happened to stay during some stormy days. The wind was very strong, but we stayed cozy and dry inside the cabin. Our doggo had tons of room to roam off leash; the light up harness was a total win. There were coyotes in the distance, but no animals visited the campsite to bother our gear. This rustic cabin gave the perfect mix of primitive camping along with the upscale of real walls, windows and a door. We would recommend this site to any other fellow outdoor lovers.

will not stay here again
Unfortunately there were a few issues. mice feces all over surfaces, a window that blew open all night with 30’ weather. a neighboring fog that barked the entire night, and plates and silverware were left from previous renters unwashed. we let the host know and left a day early and they refused to refund us even after I had proof of pictures etc.

Peaceful and quiet
Loved it here, and we hope to be back in the summer! Lots and lots of space to roam and you are far enough away from other campers to feel like it is private enough if they are around their site. If there is some sort of gear you might need, if is probably already here (camp stove, chairs, etc.). Loved feeling far away from everything for a few days, we wished we had more time so we are planning on being back to explore some more. Also, we (humans and dogs) all drank from the spring on the last day because we ran out of water and we are all fine!

Camping with the cows
The one thing I would note that isn’t highlighted enough is that you get to camp with cows! This hunting cabin is right in the middle of the cattle farm and the cows followed us around and even slept outside our cabin! It really added to the already amazing ambiance of this place. Also - toms of great hiking on the property, a gorgeous little drive from the gorge, and stunning views at every angle. Other than that, I’ll let the other reviews do this place the justice it deserves. In short - you will not regret your stay here!
