Off the beaten path, but easily worth the drive to a wonderfully quiet and peaceful property.
Hilary and Eric were terrific hosts, having prepared kindling for the fire pit and a hose for the water.
Very little light at night was perfect for watching stars that you just can't see when close to a city.
We wouldn't hesitate to come back again to camp when in the area.

I rented the toy hauler for 5 nights. I arrived fairly late, and Hilary and Eric had the lights on and the heat going. Eric came down to check that everything was OK and explain the details of this particular trailer.

The trailer is set up in a location that is both private and has a lovely view. It was clean and comfortable.

Hilary and Eric were cordial and helpful without being in the least intrusive.

I would happily stay there again.

Hillary and Eric were awesome hosts. The trailer was clean and inviting. The fridge was nice and cold, the heat worked and not to mention they have the best view of the valley.

Eric was a rad dirt bike guide in MoonRocks. He showed us spots we could never find on our own.

Thanks for hosting us, and even letting us meet your cute puppy Silver Bullet!

I had a wonderful weekend at The handlebar ranch! Eric and Hillary were great hosts and I had an awesome time! I had a wonderful three days of dirt bike riding at the Moon Rocks and all the beautiful trails surrounding. Eric took me on a awesome dirt bike tour and it was so nice to be able to camp in such a nice quiet setting.

Wonderful experience at Handlebar Ranch. Large area to roam with the kids and dogs. Full RV hookups with easy access. Fire pit provided for s'mores. Great riding on the land and tons of trails to ride outside the ranch with easy access. Very private and quiet. Hilary and Erik were friendly and welcoming. They were prompt to respond to all communication and always available for questions or issues (of which there were none). Will definitely be back!

We had a great time with our little family at the Handlebar Ranch! It was peaceful and quiet which was exactly what we were looking for. It had great wide open riding areas for our son to ride his quad while we could sit back and relax. The hosts, Eric and Hilary were amazing and accommodated everything we needed. We look forward to going back there this summer!

Hilary and Eric were amazing hosts! Friendly, informative and very helpful. They gave us directions on how to get to the OHV area and even offered to help us set up camp 😁

We've already recommended them to several friends. Can't wait for a return trip!
