SORRY WE ARE CLOSED THE REMAINDER OF THIS 2020 CAMPING SEASON.   Moonshadow Ranch Season #3      We want to welcome Everyone for our third season!    We loved having our guests were going to continue the tradition!  As in  past   listings,  We have a large area where we can host campers. The lots are primitive and rustic but we are improving all the time.  They are still quiet, comfortable and of course full of hospitality!  We are located at the mouth of the Big lost River Range under King mountain.  We can accommodate tenters, self contained campers, trailers and RV's.  I do have a running hydrant that can be used for fresh water within the camping area and  ** THE OUT HOUSE IS UP AND USEABLE! ** {when the temperature permits}  I do have areas for campfires and firewood for sale with a portion of the sales donated to our local private animal rescue.  The way we do it here, You are welcomed upon arrival.   I show you the property, you pick where you would like to camp, and we will bring the camp to you, fire pit,  pick nick table, wood ect and anything else that will make your stay enjoyable.  As always our valley has a lot to offer for our visitors.  There is the Atomic days celebration in Arco Every third weekend in July.  There is the King Mountain car show in June,  just 1/2mi from the MSR.  There are many things to do this summer.  During the total eclipse the days prior and after The campers all were amazed at the view of the stars here. Craters Of the Moon National Monument has frequent astronomy watching throughout the summer.  It is a short distance from MSR and is worth the trip most of our last season campers went and were impressed with its scenery and history.   We have a lot to offer for anyone who likes the great outdoors and high mountain scenery.  We pride ourselves with overwhelming hospitality and we love meeting every one of our campers.  Hiking, biking, fishing, sightseeing, sailplanes, hang gliders, paragliders, car shows and old west history.  lots to do and plenty to see what more can you ask for right!  And of course the occasional wildlife visits. (From Deer to Elk and Moose)  A few years ago shortly after everyone left from the Eclipse visit,  a young bull moose loped its way through the property, I'm sure he was still wound up from all the people from the eclipse as he wasn't letting grass grow under him as he hurried through.  We would love to see you and your family, Be warned you may be invited to a potluck campfire while you stay.   So come see us!   At the Moonshadow Ranch you will always be greeted with the warmest of welcomes!  (for more info or questions please read prior seasons listing for anything I forgot to mention or feel free to shoot me a email) and as always Have A Great Summer!  (Please note, Our river is not a full time dedicated waterway as it is diverted primarily for irrigation purposes and is dry most of the summer season but we are always hopeful this will change. So please feel free to ask if it may be running for your visit. :)  )  Also we have had some work done to the river banks due to the past seasons high water flooding so the campsites next to the river at the moment are a little rough, but we are working on smoothing them up, but there are alot of nice areas still on the property.  I can accept visitors anytime you let us know when you want to stay and we will be here awaiting your arrival!

Moonshadow Ranch was the perfect spot for our family as we pulled together a last minute holiday weekend trip. Anthony and Lucy were amazing hosts and took great care of us, especially as the rain clouds started coming in and they showed up with a large tarp to keep us dry.

Craters of the Moon was the perfect day trip and we wished we could have stayed longer to have a community potluck and see the other local spots Anthony told us about.

As far as the property, they have several acres and you can see the neighbor’s house down the way, but the river and mountains are beautiful and we got much more privacy than we would have at the busier campgrounds (Plus, we got to have a campfire).

I feel like I have two new friends and I hope I can make it back to Moonshadow Ranch soon.

It was a pleasure to stay there. A really calm site and we loved being next to the river. Tony was really lovely to us and brought us everything we needed for a perfect stay! Would really recommend staying there.

We had an amazing time staying on Tony's property. He was so helpful and accommodating and I highly recommend his space. The views are just incredible and he provided fresh water for the RV, a bundle of wood, clean portapotty, trash cans, picnic table, etc..

His place was also close to craters of the Moon national Park and 1000x better than staying at the local KOA or other near-by RV campsites.

Anthony was the best host. We arrived much later than we expected. When we got there it quickly became dark. He helped find perfect spots for tents, get our fire started, and was a great emotional support when one of the tent poles broke.

The pole got fixed, the fire was amazing, and my hope of seeing the stats came true. Definitely want to go back and stay a little longer.
