Jesse was very gracious and accepted our request at the very last minute! We were passing through the area and needed a place. Cool location with trees, lots of wood for a great fire. Farm road passage which was a little tight but away from the farm.
Could use a table.

My friend and I had a nice stay in this beautiful area! The host was very helpful and kind. We enjoyed the trees and greenery surrounding our campsite, as well as the friendly cows who came to visit us. Would visit again, and recommend for others!

We had a great time at Baker's acres. The campground was the perfect place for my kids to explore and be out in nature. The big cottonwood trees provided good shade, and the swing and zipline were fun additions to the area. The river was really close by, which was just what we wanted. Jesse went out if his way to make sure we were taken care of and comfortable, even letting us borrow a hammer to hammer in the stakes on our tent. The dutch oven meal his wife made us was fabulous. I would highly recommend this campground and will definitely use it again the next time we come to this area.

Good things was there was a swing and very small Zipline. However the place was filled with cow dung and insects. We end up not staying at the place.

Jesse is a fabulous host. Very accommodating. Beautiful property with lots of shady spots to camp. There are lawn games, table and chairs, and a small zip line that my son loved! We even got a visit from the cows! We were the only campers that night so it was extremely private. I would definitely come back again! The one note is there is cow manure but that’s the charm of staying on a cattle ranch! Plus, there is a shovel on the property to move some cow patties.

The place was delightfully quiet with lots of shade, lots of available firewood, and easy access to the river. We literally saw not one other human for 2 1/2 days (2 other sites were both vacant), but we did see lots of awesome birds and heard many coyotes at night. Jesse was accommodating and friendly , the place was as described. Definitely recommended if you’re looking for quiet solitude and riparian environment.

Jesse was very responsive, kind and accommodating. Sweet spot by the river, under some beautiful willows. Provided a port-o-san, water and ice.

Took me and my girls. Jesse was very polite and attentive. I really couldn’t have asked for more. Everything is as described. It was very comfortable. I totally forgot about mosquitos since were by the river 😬so sorry for all the girls screaming the first night haha. If your forgetting anything it’s a 10 min drive down the road to Family dollar. Space for the kids to play and trees to climb.
