This is an amazing hidden gem just north of Riggins, ID. Well worth a short trip off the beaten path! The hosts are incredibly nice and the morning coffee and muffins were a delicious treat each day. We would love to stay at 7U ranch again.

7U Ranch was so amazing. We loved every minute we spent there. Raini and Seth were incredible people! The location and surrounding were fantastic, the farm was beautiful and the butter, oh the butter! was almost as amazing as the ice cream. My son kept asking 'when can we come back to the farm?' for days after we left. There were lambs, puppies and cows. We purchased pork chops, pork belly and ground beef (for burgers) - all fantastic. We are planning another rafting trip next summer and we'll be sure to stay at the farm. Thank you so much for making our vacation so perfect!

Really loved this place! It's off the beaten path, nestled in the hills of the Cow creek canyon and affords great views of the Salmon river. The tent is very nice, with a wood stove for heat. We also appreciated the electric heater for the use in the morning when the fire had gone out. We enjoyed the sounds of the farm animals and the rushing creek, and found it very relaxing. It was nice to have the provision of muffins and coffee each morning and we enjoyed the fresh milk. We would definitely recommend this place and would consider revisiting this place some time.

What a great setup! Raini’s place was just right for a road trip getaway. The setting is gorgeous, the tent super comfortable with a great attention to detail. The muffins and coffee in the morning were sweet and I’d encourage you to buy some of the ranch-raised pork, beef, lamb or chicken 7U offers. Delicious!. We never actually met Raini but she was very responsive to communication. The area is spectacular, and the accommodation close to a lot of the highlights. Highly recommend!

Tent #2 at 7u

Our stay at Tent #2 (queen bed) exceeded all our expectations. Our host Raini and her family were friendly and discreet. We felt we were on our own private island with some luxuries not normally available with camping such as visiting livestock, fresh cream with our coffee, and a variety of premium meat stocked up for purchase. The 7U Ranch was close enough to nearby Riggins that we got to swim and relax on the beach. We definitely recommend this experience to anyone looking for a quiet private camping experience.
