Sudden Valley Ranch is a peaceful paradise.  This is a family farm - 138 acres with 1.5 miles of creek (the depth of the creek depends on Mother Nature - but you can typically find a swimming hole year round).  There are woods, hills, ridges and open pastures/hay fields; we sit in a large valley with beautiful views.  We have horses, chickens, 2 farm dogs and barn cats.  We

Sudden Valley Ranch is a peaceful paradise.  This is a family farm - 138 acres with 1.5 miles of creek (the depth of the creek depends on Mother Nature - but you can typically find a swimming hole year round).  There are woods, hills, ridges and open pastures/hay fields; we sit in a large valley with beautiful views.  We have horses, chickens, 2 farm dogs and barn cats.  We have a large seasonal garden.  You may see wild life - deer, turkey, rabbits, hawks, eagles and raccoons.  

We offer 2 rustic tent campsites that are separate and private from our home and each other.  You may easily walk or drive to the campsites.  Each campsite has a private outhouse, and a fire ring with an ample supply of wood.  You have access to fresh well water through a spigot.  We have a four-man tent available for a fee.  Ticks are a concern during the month of June - you may want to bring bug spray.  

Warrenton is located about 30 miles north of Washington, Missouri.  Washington is a quaint town located on the Missouri River with several wineries in the surrounding area.  We are also about 24 miles north of Marthasville where you can ride the Katy Trail.  Hermann, Missouri is 34 miles southwest of us - another quaint town whose seven wineries produce about one-third of the state's wine. Big Joel's Safari and Long Row Lavender farm are both located in Wright City less than 10 miles away.  

Come and relax, read a book, draw/sketch/paint, or simply let the sounds of nature lull you to sleep.  We believe you will leave rejuvenated!   

There is absolutely NO HUNTING during your stay.

I stayed there for a night with my other 5 friends and my small dog. We loved the site. It was private and nothing to worry about. Owners have 2 farm dogs and both are adorable. They also provided us the charcoal grill and plenty of other camping necessities like plates, utensils, soap and so on. That was very thoughtful of them. Overall, we enjoyed our stay there and would go back again.

We've stayed at a lot of hipcamps and have thought they were great, but this place stand out above them all! Gorgeous location, fun little creek to splash around in, we even caught a couple little fish -- very little :). But what was so nice about it is all the little touches other reviews mention. It was soooo nice not having to pull out and dirty our cooking supplies, the fire pit was huge with lots of wood, the bathroom was clean with a motion sensor light, etc. We were booked for a ridge site but we asked if we could be by the creek and he set us up no problem. I highly recommend this spot!

Seriously, we have camped all over the US, and this is by far my favorite place. I loved visiting the horses, how much space we had at our site, the host was great, the river, the accommodations. It was perfect. Highly recommend and would visit again!!

Our camp site had tables and chairs near the fire to have dinner at!A view of our campsite.Detailed shot of camp near the river, with a great kitchen area.A portrait of the owners pup, she was super friendly.

It was beautiful. We Camped there last night (early novemeber). The hosts were really kind and hands off, and the campsite was well equipped and cozy. The land is gorgeous and full of character. Just a warnig that it got a little cold at night this time of year and even with our decent cold gear we still got cold trying to sleep (bring either a ton of blankets or a 20° sleeping bag). If you are scared of cayotes (which u shouldnt be) then that would be my only reason not to stay here lol. They howled from dusk till dawn.

We only stayed a night, but it’s an obviously beautiful and special place that Randy and Melissa have made. We will definitely come back.

Super nice people and site. We stayed on the top site and loved having a campfire with the really large fire pit and supplied wood (bring a hatchet)
Great communications and welcome.
This top site was too tight to turn our 22 ft trailer around in but we were able to back in.
