Camp here! My wife and I had another site fall through and Jesse had us set up within 2 hours.

This is an incredibly private site, it's just you and whoever you're camping with.

It's also a wonderful location for astrophotography.

We hope to have the chance to stay again.

Jesse’s ranch is so cool! You’ll be one with the cattle. There are beautiful shade trees snd plenty of space to make your camp. We came with our dog and she loved the easy run around. You can hear the coyote and have privacy on the back of Jesse’s land. Jesse was welcoming and we enjoyed a great chat before departing. We recommend this place!

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.
