Welcome to 5D Ranch! We are so glad you are interested in visiting us. Let me start by introducing myself! My name is Joee. I am the granddaughter of the owners, Eddie and Margaret Dyer. They have owned this property since 1960 and it has been primarily used to raise cattle, and performance horses. However, over the last few years, the horse and cattle side of the operation has dwindled down and we have been using the land to produce hay and for personal use of the trails for our family. Last year, my Grandpa and Mom began talking about how we could utilize this place better as well as be able to share it with all of you! So we set out to work during the fall of 2015 and opened our trails in January 2016 and have since added lots of other fun activities! It has been a blast being able to share this experience with my family as well as getting to meet lots of wonderful people. We look forward to having you out here as well!

Great weekend getaway!
5D Ranch is an excellent place to get away for a peaceful camping experience. This is our second time there and we loved it just as much as the first time. Both times we camped in one of the larger sites, which had tons of room for all of our stuff, but was also very private. Unless you want to venture out on the hiking/biking/riding trails, you don't have to see another person during your entire stay and we like that. Julie, our host, was very accommodating when we had to check in later than planned and made it very easy for us. We live about an hour away from the ranch so this is now our go-to place when we want a weekend in the woods to get away from the world.

I loved tent camping on Julie’s land! My fiancé and I had a great time hiking and loved the peace and quiet of our remote camp site. The sites and outhouses are well taken care of and clean.

Great property
Great camping property. We did a one night stay for a “trial run” for the kiddos. Hosts were extremely friendly and provided exceptional details regarding the availability amenities of the property. We will return again shortly for a longer stay. We had a blast.

Loved loved lovedddd this place. All the sites looked wonderful and they were very accommodating. It was very windy and cold and rainy this day that we rented and they were able to suggest a much calmer site where we could shade more from the wind chills and it was a camp to remember. Would definitely book again

Camping at 5D!
Beautiful serene ranch! Julie and Eddy were wonderful hosts, very friendly and attentive! The campsite was very nice, open sections as well as a secluded spot for a wind break. It was a bit chilly during our stay, but what can you do about Fall weather and Texas? Enjoy it to the fullest. Plenty of trails to keep us occupied. Quigley the ranch dog is a sweetie and escorted us during a mini hike as well as packing up!😁🤩 We'll be back for sure! Thank you for having us!😁

We pitched at tent at Julie's 5D Ranch this weekend and it was wonderful. Julie was extremely responsive and met us upon arrival to guide us to our camp site 7. We were able to drive up to the site, which was private, spacious, and equipped with wooden spools to sit on and a fire pit. There were several nice trails marked and a little lake with aluminum boats available. We hope to getaway to the 5D Ranch again soon!

Everyone enjoyed staying and camping in 5d. Julie and her family went above and beyond to accommodate a big group of us, to assist us with our questions and more. The place is spacious and great for primitive camping. We all would recommend this to others. Thank you!

This place is awesome. 5th time there with my kids. Nice private campsites. Huge, beautiful property. This trip there were more people staying than my previous experiences, and it didn't change anything. Great stay.

Family tent camping with dog
My family and I had a really good time tent camping at 5D ranch. Julie was great and made us feel like she really cared about us having a good stay. The bathrooms were really nice for a campsite. Even the outhouse bathroom was nicer than other campsite bathrooms we’ve been to that have plumbing. Only thing to be aware of is each bathroom has one stall so there may be a wait to use it. Other than that the place is very clean with very pretty views. It’s a great getaway. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful Experience 😍
Had the best time at 5D Ranch! Stayed in site 15 and loved it! Don’t have a single thing to complain about. Came in around 6 on a Saturday and left mid day on Monday. Julie was wonderful to communicate with, she answered my messages very promptly and actually helped me pick a better campsite than I initially had chosen. Thanks for everything Julie! Saturday night I just cooked dinner and sat by the fire and got some good sleep. Sunday morning made some coffee and took my dog for a walk to the larger lake to see what it was like. Squiggly, the resident ranch dog, met us as we were approaching and was super friendly. Went back to my site, grabbed my fishing stuff and drove back to lake to go fishing. They provide free small metal boats with paddles and life jackets. I spent 3 hours on the lake and was able to catch 2 bass 😊 It was perfect! Didn’t do much after that, really just wanted to relax. Left Monday around noon or so. As I was disposing of my trash near the office/bathroom building, the owner of the property was there watering his plants. J. Eddie was such a sweet man, thanked me for visiting and showed me around the office. Would 100% recommend this place to everyone 😊

Site 9 - 5D Ranch
I booked a one night stay as a surprise bday trip for my husband. It was so relaxing and their property is beautiful. We were met at the check in point, provided a map, and they took us to our campsite. I paid a little extra for a small grill to be left at the campsite. I definitely recommend it for the convenience. We stayed at site 9, which is more secluded. Every once in a while we would hear campers walking on the trail in the distance but other than that it was pretty quiet. Clean bathrooms and showers are available close by as well. Our bikes came in handy when we needed to head there, rather than walking or taking the car. The owners dog, Quigley, found us while we were walking the trails. We decided to follow him and he brought us to the lake, which was a nice surprise. Sturdy metal paddle boats are available for camper use as well. We definitely plan on returning in the future and look forward to telling our friends and family of the great experience we had.

Great camping!
Site 7 was private and helped filter out the sounds of other campers and there dogs. The property is huge and the hiking was awesome. We really appreciated being within walking distance of the bathroom and shower! Just bring a lantern with you, there isn’t electricity and the bathroom is a little dim.

Beauty of the SHNF!
Though we arrived late, Julie met us at the gate and gave us a warm welcome! She explained everything to us and showed us to our site. Site 14 is definitely tucked away and really nice. My kids enjoyed boating in the lake after we hiked in the sam houston national forest (only a 30 min drive). Bathroom was within walking distance and we had a fire pit! Highly recommend if you love camping!

Second time! We loved it!!!
This is our second time camping at 5D Ranch. We have camped both times at site 12. It’s close to the lake which is nice for swimming or boating around. The water this time was low (as is all of TX) but still clear, clean and cool! The site is large enough for 2-3 nice shady spots for tents on level ground. The porter potty is a 7-10 min walk away (if you want to be closer to bathrooms site 10 is much closer and also shady). The flush bathroom is a drive away about 1 mile up the road. Only complaint was that there was a VERY roudy/drunk/loud group staying at site 13 one night we were there. This can happen at any campground but did want to mention it bc a private home there wasn’t really anyone to “complain” or “reach out to force them to quiet down”.

Family favorite
Our families 2nd time to visit 5D. Site 8 is always our go to. Secluded, big site! Great days hiking and exploring. The pond is sadly getting so low making it hard to fish. Prayers for rain. We took our bikes this time but there is really too much sand to make them usable. Thanks for the memories.

Great experience with humans & dogs
Everything went great during my stay. From the hospitality of the host who reached out to me as soon as I confirmed my reservation, to the lovely dog companion “Quigley” who hung out with me and my group. We enjoyed hiking, swimming, singing by the fire and admiring the beauty of the space and the stars and moon at night! I would totally recommend this place to anyone who wants to get out of the city and have a time in peace and nature. This camping spot is great to bring your dogs, so don’t hesitate, they’ll appreciate the wilderness of this space.
