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. The Rockin’ N Ranch is located on 80 acres in the picturesque Buena Vista Valley of Pershing County, and backs to 600 acres of BLM land. 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).

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.

We really enjoyed our time there. So peaceful and quiet and the flowers were blooming everywhere on the surrounding hills and valley floor. Visitong the rescue horses and cattle and goats was fun. We will definitely be back if in the area

Very nice camp hosts! Conveniently located away from I-80 in a peaceful valley between two mountain ranges. Great stars and my kids got to feed the cows. I would stay here again when traveling across Nevada.

I had two great overnight stays on a car trip from the Bay Area to Salt Lake City and vice versa. The welcoming hosts, while tending to their important Medicine Horse Project work, share with hip campers their vast and peaceful expanse with open skies, surrounded by hills and snow-topped ranges. I appreciated the simplicity of the basic campsites, but campers should bring their own water and be aware of limited amenities as described.

I recommend this hipcamp, we stayed for a night in early October, here are some highlights:
- While you're driving down the road to the camp you'll see friendly cows freely roaming about.
- Friendly neighbors; I got a little lost but luckily a neighbor flagged me down and gave me some directions. My advice, if you're using google maps you have to go a bit further down the dirt road than where the coordinates bring you. Then you'll find the box marker on your left.
- It may have been because I was the only camper that night but it was really peaceful and silent, best sleep I've had in months.
- This place is perfect for stargazers, we saw so many stars and constellations were very clear.
- There was a fire pit with log stumps for seating, makes you feel like you're in a western movie with cowboys! In addition there was a garbage can at the site.
- Morgan was very hospitable, gave me directions to the hot springs and greeted me after we arrived to make sure we were all set and to answer any questions.
- Like another comment said, be ready for dust/sand, Morgan mentioned he started laying out gravel which helped immensely.
