We had an absolutely amazing time staying out on the ranch! Charles was the most amazing host. He took the time to show us every bit of his property, from the beautiful creek to the top of the mountain and the entrance to the incredible cave up there. He even invited us to join him in feeding the tribe of goats that are being raised on the ranch. The site was absolutely perfect for our RV and it was wonderful to have full hookups available. The ranch is a hidden treasure for fossil hunters and we enjoyed finding many unique fossils. Charles is an expert at botanical knowledge and we loved learning about the indigenous trees and flowers of the area. We cannot wait to come back to this incredible hidden gem.

The sunset views are spectacularIt was so fun getting to experience goat feeding time!Scenic View RV Site 1rv

We had a fun and relaxing weekend. Finding little gems like this is the way to go. Charles greeted us at the gate and got us to our site quickly. Family had fun fishing (Charles got the youngest into a few fish), and swimming in the Medina River. We were provided with all of the wood we could burn. There was a picnic table and fire ring. Nice having full hookups as well. Everyone continuously checked in with us to make sure we were good to go.

If your looking for a quite, easy going place to simply camp and relax, give this place a try.

The ranch was absolutely amazing and had plenty of things to do!!! We stayed just for a camping spot but could’ve spent all day just exploring everything.
