Here at Rescue Ranch there are 2 campsite options depending on your type of stay. If you are driving a truck or SUV you can wiggle your way along the wheat field and forest back to campsite two or three just along the woods. For those seeking the ultimate wilderness experience, you can take your tents into the forest, where you will find total seclusion and immersion in the forest next to wet stone branch, which is a cute little creek. Once back to the third campsite, you will be able to find many hiking trails.

Ramona was an extremely gracious host. We did have trouble with the last 100 yards of the directions but she drove out to meet us and even carried water out to us. The site was between the outside fence of her house and a farmers field which sloped down to a wooded creek. Fallen Branch water fall is about a 10 minute drive (plus a half mile walk) and is definitely worth the effort. I wish we had more time to explore. We drove through beautiful countrysides close to the site. The only heads up I would share is that the site has no bathroom (as advertised) and the available camping is almost always in view of two homes.
Easy to navigate and peaceful!
Ramona was an awesome host! We were in our 36 foot travel trailer of which she opened up her driveway so we could turn around easily. Due to our size we parked along the long driveway overlooking her fields and the neighbors horse pasture. We didn’t get the greatest of weather to enjoy the amenities of hiking but we know the area and it’s beautiful. She also had a nice fire pit for us to use and offered us to use another fire pit in the woods if we wanted more privacy. The sunsets are beautiful here.
My boyfriend and I were looking for a spot last minute. We were taking our rescue dog on his first camping trip. This place was awesome. It was such a luxury to be able to hike and not see anyone on the property surrounding the campsite. Arrival was super easy and Ramona and her son were great hosts. We will definitely stay here again.
A secret gem in jarrettsville
Wish I could give a ten star review for this one. Because of COVID, we’ve been limited in our ability to go camping so we definitely a bit worried when we booked, but Ramona’s property could not have been more beautiful! Sitting between the edge of a wheat field and a beautiful forest, we camped beneath a sky filled with stars with no light pollution or traffic noise. despite arriving at 11pm, Ramona and her very kind son came out to meet us and walked through an entire field of wheat to get us to our campsite. They THEN offered to come out the next morning to show us the nearby trails and even lent us some peppermint oil to keep the ticks off our dog and ourselves. The trails themselves are beautiful — you can choose between a 4x4 clean path, or the one that was slightly overgrown (but to us, that makes it all the more exciting); both trails follow a creek that cuts back and forth for about 1/4 of a mile before hitting a big, open meadow with A few tall trees that were perfect to spend the day under. We decided not to hike further, choosing instead to hang a hammock between the trees and spend the day reading in the beautiful sunshine. Can’t tell you enough how perfect this site was, or how wonderful the hosts were!
Ramona was really nice, however the campsite was not we had expected, especially based off the pictures. The fire pit was next to the road and we were looking for something a bit more wild. We ended up camping between her wheat field and forest on a bad slope. The area around the campsite was nice but definitely a short drive away. Despite the bad campsite it was still fun. 3/5 stars
Great experience. book now!
This was my first time using Hipcamp. My experience was wonderful. Our host was gracious and I appreciated her and the site. The location is so close to so many things to do.
Enjoyed a beautiful sunset over the wheat grass field near my fire at the campsite. Very scenic time.
The property offers some brief hiking, a creek, and bush whacking into the forest. Also a nice state park nearby to explore.
Host was very nice and accommodating, offering bug spray and anything else we didn't have.
We parked our van at the camp site, and struggled to find a final flat spot.. If you have a tent, this should be no problem. Great experience and I would gladly return.
