A Swell Oasis in the desert of the San Rafael Swell: Swell Retreat. A pine tree farm was active prior to us purchasing the land, so lots of beautiful trees. A couple ponds stocked with large mouth bass. Zipline, WIBIT, water slide, etc. A field of hay, and continued improvements to make it into a Swell Retreat!!! We are a great spot to stay and have onsite a zip line into Lake Elevate, water slide into the pond, adventure island, zipline, kayaking, paddle boarding, catch and release fishing, and close to all fun in the San Rafael Swell. 20 min or so from three reservoirs for additional fishing, swimming and motor boating, 30 minutes from the Little Grand Canyon for breathtaking views, hiking and mountain biking, petroglyphs and the San Rafael Swell river to float on, 60 minutes from Goblin Valley, within 60 minutes to multiple slot canyons: Little Wild Horse Canyon, Muddy Creek, The Chute (similar to Zion National Park), Baptist Draw, to name a few. Mountain fun for rock climbing just up the road in Joe's Valley, hiking, biking, fishing, etc. We would love to have you stay on our little farm while you enjoy the fun of the San Rafael Swell adventures.

Great camping site and lovely hosts! We had a lot of fun. We got visited by a bobcat in the night and the longhorn cows, which were friendly. We will be back next year with more friends and family.

Great experience
Lacy and Ben were amazing hosts and we appreciated the comforts of restrooms, ambiance lighting, potable water, trash can, cook burners etc. The property was spacious, beautiful, and our group really took advantage of the many activities on the property. We would definitely come back.

Best Camp Around
Ben and Lacy were extremely helpful in hosting our group of 30. With so many people, minor issues are a guarantee, and these two were on top of everything, and left no stone unturned. The numerous amenities were a huge advantage over going anywhere else. From grills, hammocks, tables, kayaks, obstacle course, water slides, zip line, pavilion, trampoline, EVERYTHING you’d need to have a successful camp. Our big group has struggled for years to find a compatible place to enjoy our yearly reunion, and this was it. We are grateful for their hospitality and opening their land to us.
