This is an off grid true camping experience. I live on site in a tiny house off grid. There is no dumping facility here-it is dry camping. Water avail. Pack it in, pack it out, this includes all refuse. This is an ideal place mid way btwn Missoula and Glacier National Park. From the west coast it's a nice camp en route to Yellowstone National Park. My land is prairie with spectacular views Mission Mountains east and National Bison Range west. Currently I have only one site available which includes afternoon shade from the barn. It is far too hot and dry in Montana this summer to have you camp in any other spot here. There are still spectacular views of the Mission mountains at this private campsite. Quiet time is after 10pm in respect to the land owner, neighbors, and wildlife.

Best Hipcamp experience we had our whole trip! Lori was so nice and helpful. She made us feel so welcome and helped give us directions and tips for going into town and exploring the areas around the farm. One of the most beautiful spots I've ever seen. Nestled at the foothills of the mountains and perfectly set for gorgeous sunsets. I would highly recommend a stay here!

We had the BEST one night stay at Lori’s lovely farm. Rain was in the forecast so she wisely recommended we stay at the top of the driveway in our trailer. The views are stunning and we loved watching the deer move through her pasture. The outdoor, wood-fire-heated bath add on was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. Lori herself could not have been more kind, helpful and welcoming. Her rustic, but exuding authentic charm property was beyond our expectations. Take the opportunity to book now, and don’t miss buying some of her lovely lavender products before you leave!

So kind, your words Casi! Thank you so much for coming and for taking the time to enjoy some of my off grid experiences. Thank you also for your patience with the alternate camp spot and while I prepared your outdoor wood-fired bath. I'm so glad everything worked out. And thank you for supporting my lavender business. I'm glad to refill those bottles - don't go without! Thanks for staying! Lori

This was one of the best experiences of my life. Lori is a fantastic person and her ranch is an AMAZING place. We stayed one night and could not ask for anything more — from the views, the lavender farm, the campsite, and Lori! I would recommend this 1000 times over. Book it now!!! And don’t forget to buy loris lavender products and some peonies from her garden!

We had such a wonderful 3 night stay at Lori’s farm! Lori was SO welcoming, nice, and helpful in making sure we had the best weekend. She has great recommendations, amazing lavender products (you must purchase!), and the most beautiful property! Everything was beyond our expectations and I loved every minute of it. Truly an unforgettable experience, I HIGHLY recommend staying here!

A little slice of heaven

I stumbled into Hipcamp and can't believe our good fortune in finding Lori Parr and her little slice of heaven on a cross-country road trip with my sister. We traveled with a tear drop camper and Host Lori couldn't have been more welcoming and kind. The views of the Glacier Mountain range from her property are heart-stoppingly beautiful. Lori is a lavender grower w/a fabulous specialty shop on site filled w/natural and homeopathic items for purchase. She also offers an outdoor fire-heated "Bath Experience" that is out-of-this world and a luxurious treat after a long day on the road. This is an ideal place for folks looking for peace and quiet - party people should stay elsewhere.

Aww! Deb and Tracy! Thank you for this generous and kind review! It was so fun to have you here. I genuinely had fun setting up your bath and little candlelit (x3!) walkway to guide you to it. I've talked so much about your beautiful tear drop trailer! And was secretly hoping you'd mention your toilet experience ;-). Thanks so much for choosing Rosalie Ranch in the Mission valley!

It was a great experience! All views from the site were beautiful! Lori greeted us warmly, making sure we were comfortable. Her directions were perfect. Her repurposed wheelbarrow/fireplace worked well and was so creative and allowed us to enjoy a beautiful fire under the stars in beautiful Montana!

Lori is awesome. She made sure we were camping comfortably and showed us around the property. Would highly recommend the lavender tour. Her experimental compost bathroom was surprisingly pleasant.. Would highly recommend staying here if traveling through Montana!

Jackson, Damon (gosh did I get that right?), and Patrick! You guys were awesome campers and participators! It's always fun for me to have a captive and interested audience whether I'm explaining lavender farming or compost bucket system toiletry! Ha! Thanks for bringing your southern charm and manners to my camp!

Stop looking. Book this spot. Lori is a wonderfully generous, smart and funny gal! Traveling as a solo female, I immediately felt SAFE and at home here, which is a BIG PLUS. It stormed the night I stayed but this sweetheart came and drove her truck up to my tent spot so I could have the option to sleep in the covered bed of the truck if I wanted. I would a million times stay here again. If youre going round Missoula area or up to GNP, or anywhere in MT really, STAY HERE!! Plus she has a lavendar shop which has the best stuff! Lavender is proven to be a stress/anxiety relief so stop worrying and book here!!

Response from Lori, the Host, on July 13th, 2020

Thank you Abby! I sincerely appreciate your choosing to stay here at the Rosalie Ranch. And your review is THE sweetest! I'm glad you felt safe and glad I brought the truck up! I once met friends of mine who flew in to Great Falls from Denmark. They brought dinner, met me at Bean Lk. on the Rocky Mountain Front and I brought all the sleeping hear and coffee making stuff for morning. It was so windy that all 3 of us slept in the back of that same truck! Ha! My mobile Hipcamp/Air BnB unit! Thanks again. And you're always welcome here.

Staying at Lori's farm was hands down my favorite experience of visiting Montana for the first time. Her farm was breathtakingly beautiful, private, and full of wonderful views, natural fragrances and wildlife. The view of the mountains in the area are spectacular and the sunset was one to remember!

Lori was also the perfect host, providing us with enough firewood and kindle (that even included lavender and sage from her farm), local tips & information along with so much charm and warmth to make us feel super welcome. Lori was an absolute joy to speak with and we ended up buying a bunch of products from her farm, all of which were of the utmost quality. It's obvious that Lori cares about her farm and her guests and staying here was a trip that we will not soon forget! Easily the best Hipcamp experience I've had to date.

Aw Bob! Thank you for this beautiful review! You and Matt were such a blast to talk with! I could've talked about old rock n rollers all night with you guys. I appreciate your own charm, your politeness, and that you chose my Rosalie Ranch for a stay. Thanks also for supporting the efforts/produce from my small farm. I was impressed you kayak'd over to Wild Horse Island-I think a lot of Montanans would be impressed by this! It was real fun to send something to yer ma! You guys come on back some day!
