I’ve been to Briers a handful of times now and I’m still discovering new things! There is so much to explore and I feel very safe here. I know I can “get lost” in wooded areas without ever truly being lost. There are several unique environments to camp on among the property. Open pasture, deep woods, woods with pasture view. Even by the cabin! Gary is an excellent host! - giving campers their space while also always being available (even on thanksgiving!). I have hung with the cows, explored decaying trees (might sound strange, but there’s so much life at a dead tree, very cool), had many of fires with the free wood that is provided (thank you, gary!!), and lots of cozy nights under the stars! There is some traffic that can be heard and the occasional very distant neighbor practicing shooting (i think??), but these really arent too bothersome when you’re out there because the wind in the trees usually covers it. always nice and quiet at night, you can hear the coyotes in the distance. I could go on, but highly recommend checking this place out for yourself!

Had a wonderful time at Brier’s ranch. A truly magical place. The cattle were my constant companions. The mooing of the cows, and braying of the bulls was the best music I’ve heard in a long time. Lots of very talkative crows as well. The campsite in the little oak grove a few hundred yards from the unfinished cabin was the perfect spot to reconnect with nature. Thank you Gary for opening your pasture to campers like me. I will say that I’m glad I drive a truck, because I’m not sure my old Honda Accord could have made it across all that grass to the back of the pasture where the cabin and the campsites are. But if you’re into backpack hiking then you could always leave your car near the entrance and hike all the way back there. Probably about a mile or so across lots of grassy pasture, and through four or five open gates that section off the various portions of it.

Fantastic area. My only complaint was the road noise was annoying. I believe it was a more a problem of where I camped rather than the area. Beautiful camp ground though.
