Mountain RV spot at Elk Ridge Ranch
What an incredible stay/experience! We will never forget feeding the animals, swimming in the gorgeous pond (that these awesome hard working hosts BUILT THEMSELVES!!!) and the awesome views! The campsite was perfect for our camper. Dale helped us back it in, no trouble at all:) and get hooked up to the electric and fill our water tank. We then swam in the awesome pond with amazing views and fruit trees all around! After dinner we fed the Elk and Buffalo and learned so much about them! Susan and Dale truly love hosting people and they are amazing farmers. 100% recommend!!!! Would absolutely stay again!

Cute elk and fun hosts
Our family took an epic 2.5 week journey from MN through the southwest. We stayed at various HipCamp and NPS sites. Elk Ranch stands out as one of the top stays simply because the stay was an experience in itself. The hosts were jovial and engaging. We were given a fun hands on tour of the bison and elk ranch and even got to meet a baby elk that was just days old. We also took advantage of the beautiful and clean mountain -top swimming pond. We did purchase some elk meat for the road as we like to support good eats and small business efforts.

Amazing stay!!!
We are on a cross country trip for a work move and this place is amazing! Dale and Susan were two of the most kind and gracious hosts we have met. While having only used Hipcamp several other times our visit exceeded any and all expectations. We arrived later than expected but they were waiting for us to help set up and settle in for the night. We have two daughters who love the outdoors and animals, they both jumped straight out of the car and were helping feed the elk and ride the tractors before I could even set up. Staying Elk Ridge is like having an entire campground to yourself with a lake/pond that is swimmable with a diving board, life vests and pool toys for eveyone. Additionally, and not expected they provided us a close up encounter with the Bison and Elk allowing my children to learn about the animals and to get up close and personal. Dale and Susan were amazing hosts that provide that personal level of hospitality that is unmatched in our hip camp experiences thus far.

Top Notch Accommodation
What a fabulous stay! Dale and Sue went above and beyond to ensure our stay was top notch! The private swimming hole was beautiful and perfectly refreshing. Meeting and feeding the animals was an awesome experience, especially the white buffalo, Casper and the huge bull elk!

This is more than a place to park; we had an incredibly amazing experience! Dale and Susan went above and beyond as hosts, making us feel more like family than weekend guests. What was intended to be a short stay and a quick stop ended up becoming one of the highlights of our trip across country! We are so blessed to have gotten the opportunity to stay here, and pray we will get the chance again. ❤️
