Hey Hipcampers! We are a all Buckaroo experience! We bring a cow camp experience off the desert right to you here on our place! We are a 501-c-3 non profit animal refuge specializing in unwanted, aged, abused, neglected, and in need of refuge horses and dogs. (Sometimes more!) We loved our days calving out momma cows so much we wanted to share the lovely side of cowboy culture with you! From camp cooking to cowboy stories and music we look forward to sharing our culture with you. Of course, if your just looking to watch stars from a tipi well, we won't disturb ya'! Come on over and help to support the critters here on The Butterfly Ranch! (LBGT, Mary Jane friendly, and spiritually accepting)

The vibe at The Butterfly Ranch
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
My stay lasted less than an hour because I was asked to leave after I tripped over the lower part of the teepee door and fell on my face. Presumably because of some bodily deformity I have, the two hosts assumed I was grossly disabled overall rather than asking what I COULD do and tailoring my experience to that. In fact, I remember now that I've tripped over a teepee door long before my deformity. Some of your reading might have done this as well. In fact, my DOG tripped coming out. This was late in the day and the hosts did nothing to help me find other accommodations or dinner other than mention there was an RV park in the nearest town. I was left with 2 nights of camping without reservations. The hosts definitely need some ADA training. Otherwise, I did feel the pre-stay information was scant. Hip Camp posted no photos that I saw of the inside (or outside of the) teepees indicating that we were to stay in them, so I didn't know whether to bring a sleeping bag or not. From the Hip Camp posting I assumed we were staying in tents. The schedule of what meals the hosts provide and which they don't was not posted and was also confusing, including what if any additional price there would be for those meals.
