If you're looking for a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the world then Bell Ranch is the place! We decided to stay here for a social distancing weekend with a couple of friends and had an amazing time. Floyd was quick to respond to any questions we had and even provided us with firewood and farm fresh eggs for breakfast! No other sites were rented so it was super private, but there are 4 sites total. If all were rented, you would definitely be within eyesight and earshot of the neighbors, however, the sites are spaced far enough apart that this wouldn't be a problem. We casted around a bit in the creek that runs along the sites and caught both a small crappie and a small bass. Site included a portable toilet, chairs, a picnic table, a fire ring, and trash cans. There is also a travel center about 10-15 minutes up the road that has a nice convenience store and meat market should you need to swing by for anything. Would definitely stay again!

This was a great spot for us. Floyd was very accomodating and kind. There were fresh eggs and plenty of firewood. Great location. Big thicket national park is 16 minutes away by car.

Beautiful piece of property for a weekend of camping. We enjoyed fishing in the creek and exploring the woods. The only negatives would be that the sites are pretty close together, so if all sites are booked then it's not very private. It worked out for us since we were the only ones there this weekend and we had plenty of room to roam! If you have a large group, you could always book more than one site to avoid overcrowding. There is not a lot of activity to do for entertaining kids, but if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend getaway then it's perfect!

Floyd was very nice upon arrival, giving us several farm fresh eggs to cook. He was also very informative and patient with all of my questions! We would love to come back again!

Great little campsite - tucked away in the woods along a little creek. Sites were stocked with firewood and two 5 gallons of well water. Large fire rings with plenty of chairs and a picnic table We booked sites 2 and 3 with two families and it was perfect. These two sites are very close together so works best when booking these together.

Bells Ranch is a great place to really get away from it all. We stayed several nights before Thanksgiving. The sites in the woods are secluded and well maintained. They sit next to a creek where we’re able to catch several fish. There are several back roads with little to no traffic, and we were able to bike for miles without seeing another soul. Floyd was a great host - providing fresh eggs on our arrival and plenty of firewood. We’ll definitely be back.

Campsite was nice and secluded with a nice fishing spot. Site was stocked with a picnic table, lounge chairs, firewood, cooking grates, and hay to pad your tent site. Host provided farm fresh eggs as well! Will 100% book again in the future.
