     Pitch your tent between the corn field  and forest and listen to the wildlife as it comes alive at dark.  Hike the mountainous terrain to the stream at the back  of the farm. Walk to Rocks State Park where you will marvel at the notorious rock formation called The King and Queen Seat.  Don't expect anything fancy here....just you one with nature.  Eden Mill Nature Center and Falling Branch Falls is also nearby. Wildlife you may hear and or see include deer, fox, raccoons, owls, turtles, groundhog, coyote, and an occasional bobcat or bear. 

     Here at Rescue Ranch there are 2 campsite options depending on your type of stay. If you are driving a truck or SUV you can wiggle your way along the wheat field and forest back to campsite two or three just along the woods. During the summer you will not have shade unless you take your tent into the woods.  The first campsite has a flatter spot for a tent.  The second campsite is more remote/secluded but four wheel drive is recommended for both in the event of rain.  If you dont want to drive a car to the campsite you can park on lane and walk your gear back to the campsite.  For those seeking the ultimate wilderness experience, you can take your tents into the forest(there are no groomed sites), where you will find total seclusion and immersion in the forest next to wet stone branch, which is a cute little creek. Once back to the third campsite, you will be able to find many hiking trails.  Bring your own firewood or forage for sticks!

Our family of four including a 6 & 10 yr old had another amazing Hipcamp experience.

Ramona and her father Ray were very welcoming and gracious hosts

We stayed at site #3, the furthest from the house and closest to the creek. Plenty of privacy, with views of open farmland on one side and the endless woods on the other. Yes, the site isn’t the flattest, so if you can’t adapt, choose #1 or #2. The creek is a short couple min walk downhill and well worth the walk back up. We enjoyed several hours down creekside, it’s very peaceful yet entertaining for the kids.

Rocks state park is pretty awesome, and less than 10 min away, maybe even closer. We enjoyed hiking around the King and Queen seat area as well as Kilgore Falls. Guilty of going to Falling Branch Brewery for lunch 😉, food truck onsite for eats.

Ramona was very accommodating and the property was lovely. It had rolling hills and few level spots, so plan accordingly. I am an amateur astronomer and brought a telescope with me. There was a clear view of nearly the entire sky from the field, absolutely breathtaking.

Unfortunately, we had to cut our stay short so that we were not breaking down in thunderstorms, but Ramona was quick to reach out to work with on that too. As I said the views were breathtaking and that alone would be enough to get us back, but the fact that it is so convenient for us, secluded, and quiet makes this a win in my book!

Thanks Ramona!

Beautiful property with an option of two campsites both with fire pits. The second site backs up right on the hill forest line where you can hear the peaceful creek at the bottom all night long. Host was timely, responsive and supplied fire wood!

This place is great. The two campsites are more secluded than they look on the pictures.

Ramona was great! The site was exactly what we expected. Very laid back. Not “primitive” but private and secluded. Local hikes, trails and parks everywhere.
