Retro Star Ranch is safe and secluded.  We have 25 acres of land at the end of a private road in a secret hidden valley not far from SLC, Ogden and Eden Utah.  This land is pristine and connected to over 5000 acres of undeveloped open space.   The property is part of a recreation property subdivision.  You might see some fellow campers on quads, occasionally you might hear gunfire,  but you're more likely to see deer, fox, grouse, birds of prey, moose and possibly elk.  Not far from Causey Reservoir and the South Fork of the Ogden River both of which have great water for floating and fishing.  We have a metal fire ring on site and a 30 ft geo dome which is great for hanging hammocks in.   We don't have a lot of trees so bring your hats and shades.  Mornings and late afternoons are beautiful.  One of the few places where in the area where you can really hear the silence.  

Getting Here:  You can successfully get here in a sedan with creative and slow driving when dry but not recommended for sports or low clearance vehicles.  If you have 4x4 that is better, especially if you want to venture to our last campsite or pull a trailer here.   There are some tight turns and We've pulled a 30' foot trailer but the road is skinny in places and the turns are tight, bumpy from cobbles and ruts and often have puddles. There is about 2 miles of dirt road that climbs over a ridge. If you're adventurous and a confident driver on dirt roads you will have no problem. If it's you're first time pulling a trailer or if you have a low clearance then this is probably not be the spot for you.

Perfect spot to get away from the city and just be in peace with zero wifi or disturbances. The days and nights are equally beautiful. Thank you Bryan for sharing your land!

Great place to get away and relax in peace and quiet! The dome was fun to play on and sit under and the view was incredible. A little difficult to get to the spot but once we found it we were good to go. Highly recommend staying here if you love being away from the city life.

Wow, what a place to camp. There are other campsites on the land, but they are quite far apart, so you don’t feel like anyone else is around. Just gorgeous, sprawling green hills and mountains. This site is pretty exposed, so bring extra layers because it gets very cold at night. Would recommend at least having AWD in a small SUV because it is bumpy and rocky for a good mile to get to the site.

The property is awesome! Just far enough away to be really camping but close enough in case you need something. The dome is awesome for hammocks (just make sure you tie them around the connection points of the bars). the platform is a perfect spot for a tent and gives a solid space for cooking. Would 10000% percent stay here again!
