Sage brush field full of dog poop
The driveway is safely accessible only with a truck unless you want to risk damaging the underside of your car. There is one site once you pull in to the end of the driveway that is a big and decent but other than that site, it is a thick sage brush field full of dog poop. I had to lay down the fence wire and navigate my SUV in between the sage brush hitting bottom and rocks just to gain maybe 20 yards from the road to their home for little privacy. Their dogs are off leash in the field and there is poop literally everywhere not to mention a dog visiting our tent in the middle of the night and keeping me awake. Not walkable or bikable to any lakes or the rocky ford creek. The owners were nice and invited us to their bbq but they really shouldn't advertise that the whole property is accessible unless someone wants to haul their tent and everything out a quarter mile on foot. Water and honeybucket were accessible but right in front of their house so No privacy there either. Lots of nasty bites from gnats.. beautiful sunset and star gazing though. The owners should just rent out the big site or do some work to clear out some sage brush and poop if they are to host mor campers.
Enjoyed our stay at Marcus’ place. Very chill with lots of space to camp. Conveniently located near Soap Lake so easy to pop out for all the things you forgot. A great base camp to explore Soap Lake, Sun Lakes-Dry Falls and more.
The site was really pretty and the hosts were extremely nice and friendly. We were greeted with the owners dog, who was super cute. If you’re thinking of staying here consider renting a truck or SUV, there are some big rocks in the drive way that can make it difficult for regular cars.
The Ranch was everything we expected and more. Marcus and his family were very friendly, they even pointed us in the direction of some local hikes. They had a couple of very friendly dogs and a goat who seemed to think she was a dog as well. We will definitely be returning in the future and would highly recommend staying on this beautiful property.
We went to a show at the Gorge Amphitheater, and camped at this spot on the way back to Spokane. Marcus is a radical and interesting fella with a nice family. Lots of space to make your own.
We had a great time at Marcus' place! There's a pretty long driveway, so make sure you head all the way down to get to his homestead (it's also where the water and bathroom are, FYI!). He's got lots of space to spread out, and his place is just a short walk to the lake.
The neighbors have white cows, which are noisy in a cute farmsy way in the morning, and frankly, I thought they were adorable. If you get a chance to chat with Marcus and his family, they are super fun, really relaxed people, and were so excited to have my (very large! 15+ people) group come to stay with them.
You're also only about 15 minutes driving distance from the town of Ephrata, where there are gas stations and a Walmart. Moses Lake isn't too far away either, so it's very well located to be close but not too close to civilization in case you forget anything.
The site was fine. There are a few low hanging trees on the driveway in. It scratched the side of the trailer and damaged the vent cap. If he trims the trees it should be fine.
