Camping at the ranch was pure enjoyment. We did not see or hear anything but the rushing river and the surrounding woods. The stars at night we’re amazing and there was plenty to explore on the property and nearby.
Gem of a spot
This place is so special. A beautiful river to dunk in, trails to explore, delightful Larry and Michelle give you space but are so helpful as well, clean outhouses, wild turkeys, and deer! We wanted to stay forever!

Magical private oasis
What a beautiful spot, extremely private and well-located directly on the Imnaha River, which was still high enough to sit/wade in to cool off at mid-July.
We didn’t see a single other person on site unless we wanted to. There’s potable water and gallon jugs frozen for you to replenish your supply available at the ranch house, and you can pay for a shower if you like.
Sites were clean and had a picnic table, River access and a pit outhouse, and everything was amazing. It’s about 40 mins to Halfway and about an hour or more to Joseph to resupply, so plan ahead in terms of food and ice if you’re gonna be there awhile (we were four women and stayed a week).
If you’re into spicy local color type history, Larry will tell you lots of stories about the history of the ranch.
We are 100% coming back, thanks for a perfectly great week of nature immersion!
Beautiful, secluded location. Camping next to the river was so peaceful. Hosts were very accommodating and friendly. A place with a lot of fascinating history. Close to great spots to view Hell’s Canyon
We absolutely loved this spot. Aptly named! Middle of nowhere, which was just what we were looking for. And so many amazing outdoor possibilities nearby. It would be nice to have a water tank/spigot near the camp, but we brought a 5-gallon container and that got us through (plus a few liters of river water purified with a Steripen). Would love to come back here.
