Built in the 1940's by the late actor Eugene Pallette as a hideaway from Hollywood and a Refuge from looming world disaster after World War 2. There once was a cannery, a power plant a sawmill and a 5,000 sq' concrete warehouse built to withstand anything and house years of provisions. Many buildings are still standing and utilized.  The past guest list included Cark Gable (Gone with The Wind) Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan and Errol Flynn and many more. Located on the shores of the Imnaha river we have 2 miles of accessible, private spots. There is a lot of wildlife here and there is no better place to "unwind" and regroup. Pitch your tent in total privacy along the shores of the River and then kick back and take in all the sights and sounds of Nature. Surrounded by canyons on all sides tucked away in a private Valley is 300+ acres of room to roam along the river.   We have firewood and frozen bottles of water for coolers available for an extra charge And have added 3 outhouses. Potable water, picnic tables, and outhouses on site. Pets are welcome. Camp fires are permitted outside of a fire ban. Our guests love staying here: "Camping at the ranch was pure enjoyment. We did not see or hear anything but the rushing river and the surrounding woods. The stars at night we’re amazing and there was plenty to explore on the property and nearby."

We loved this ranch. Almost don’t want to write about it because more people will go!

Michelle and Larry were very welcoming and provided clear instructions to find the ranch. I loved tent camping along the river - stunning landscape, wild turkeys, deer, peacocks, eagles and more. Very special land.

Best of all time
So incredibly SERENE! We talked under the fabulous stars and agreed that this was our no. 1 campsite of all time. Parked right next to a beautiful rushing stream. Hosts are very nice and welcoming, letting us explore their property. We were booked for 1 night and immediately decided we needed to stay at least 2, so we did! The only challenging thing for some might be the remoteness, but we loved that aspect too. Just perfect- Thanks!!

Do it! You won’t regret it.
The campsite, right on the river, is just amazing! My friends and I camped off motorcycles and had a fabulous time hanging out and relaxing all afternoon and evening. The hosts are very welcoming and accommodating. I highly recommend!
