For your best experience, we highly recommend arriving during daylight and follow the directions we have provided, your mapping app and GPS will mislead you.

Boasts 360 degree views of the Humbolt, East, and Stillwater Mountain Ranges. Bring your OHV’s, horses, hiking boots, binoculars, and telescopes! Thousands of miles of trails, abundant wildlife and night skies like you have never seen before.This is an opportunity to disconnect with the fast pace of day to day life and push the refresh button surrounded by nature.Located 11 miles from Star Peak the highest and most ¬¬--topographically prominent mountain in both the Humbolt Range and Pershing County. We are also approximately 11 miles from historic Ghost Town, Star City, a silver mining boom town. In the mid 1860’s Star¬¬¬¬¬¬ City was home to 2 hotels, 3 general stores, a Wells-fargo branch, a church and more than a dozen saloons with a population of 1200. Today you can explore the ruins of the past and enjoy the gorgeous views. Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary is just 9.2 miles down the road. Safe Haven is home exotic animals requiring lifetime rehabilitation and sanctuary and offers tours. Kyle Hot Spring is just 8.2 miles down the road where you can take a soak and watch the sun dip behind the Humbolt Mountain Range. Thunder Mountain Monument is located 22.2 miles from the Rock’ N Ranch and was built by Chief Thunder, Frank Van Zant. Rye Patch Reservoir is just 44 miles east on Hwy 80 for all your water, fishing, boating and swimming adventures. Or simply explore the beauty of the diverse terrain of Buena Vista Valley. Find wild sage fields, the dry lake bed, or head higher up in the elevation. Wild life abounds! Wild horses have been seen just 7 miles away from the Rockin’ N’ Ranch. This is truly where the antelope and the deer play. You may even see a golden eagle soar.

The Rockin’ N’ Ranch is also home to The Medicine Horse Project a horse rescue and sanctuary dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and when possible rehoming of horses that have suffered abuse, abandonment, neglect or displacement. MHP partners these animals with humans seeking hope, healing and resilience, through our H.I.G.H. (Horse Inspired Growth and Healing) programs. We facilitate programs with veterans, first responders, women’s empowerment and at risk youth.The Rockin’ N. Ranch owners Morgan and Chris have a host of activities they can offer you. Tour the horse rescue, help with morning or evening feeding, treat yourself to a H.I.G.H. session or get some coaching on your partnership with your own horse. Just ask for a menu of ranch activities.Bring your tent or RV for dry camping. Don’t leave your horses at home, bring them along with your portable corral and feed, we can supply them some water. We have a lighted round corral for evening enjoyment and you certainly don’t want to miss an evening sunset ride. (The Rockin’ N Ranch does not offer horses for riding or rent).

This is such a peaceful location. The directions were easy to follow and the road was well maintained. Morgan greeted us shortly after we arrived and got to chat and hear some of his incredible stories. He is so accommodating and kind. The only noise I heard at night was the wind. The SafeHaven wildlife sanctuary down the road has tours that I very much recommend!

Had a fantastic overnight sat at Morgan's campsite. As you can see from my pictures, I had a nice view of the sun setting behind the mountains. The evening breeze was pleasant (note that the wind REALLY picks up at night) and there wasn't a noise around (though there was another campsite being used but I wouldn't have known it). Be prepared for the dirt, which is almost a chalky white. Be sure to have a brush or broom handy. Morgan came by to say "hello" and I enjoyed hearing about their ranch and future plans. Met Chris on the way out the next morning. I highly recommend this.

Perfect end to a perfect day.Easy to get in and out.

Amazing Hip Camp. Camping is very clean and we had pretty good Wi-Fi at the tack shed. The hot springs is really nice too! Great van spot! The horses are so special and Morgan/Chris are wonderful people! We highly recommend this camp!

Remote, beautiful and peaceful! It’s worth the drive to experience this very special location. Morgan was there to greet us as soon as we arrived and he was so helpful with pointing out landmarks and places to visit. That evening we walked over to where the horses are kept and got a very informative tour from Chris and Morgan while they were doing their evening feeding routine. It’s so nice to spend time with two people who are so passionate about rescuing horses-and donkeys! The evening was topped off with an amazing sunset. Would definitely recommend this location!

Great for tent camping. Plenty of space and had a fire pit. Plenty of dried sage to burn. Easy to find. Very secluded with zero light pollution.

If you look for privacy and beautiful views this is the place to be! We have been in several HipCamp but this one was by far the one that stay in our minds.
If you love horses, you can also walk trough the horses that he rescued.
It was a beautiful experience! Thank you Morgan! You were a great host!

Morgan and Chris were awesome hosts. The valley is beautiful and lots of space to camp. The hot springs up the road we’re quaint but very comfortable and warm. Great experience with panoramic views! We will be back and next time we will check out the ghost town.
