Coppergate ranch is lovely! **make sure to get an address/pin directly from Lynda or Ruston as the address you get from hipcamp apparently isn’t exactly right.
Lynda our host was very helpful and responsive! Ruston greeted my boyfriend and I at the front of the ranch and we followed him back to our campsite. He gave us the option of close to the farm (hard to say no to the happy sheep and chickens) or a little farther away -although still walking distance to the farm-and secluded. We chose secluded.
The site itself was well cleared with a basic fire pit of concrete blocks to protect the tent and nearby firewood. Ruston had actually cut up firewood nearby and said we could have at it, which was so nice! He said to holler if we needed anything and gave my boyfriend his number. He made sure we had everything we needed-including showing us a beautiful cliff/overhang we could look out on and may see deer below in the morning (spoiler I slept too late) and explaining a few cool trails we could hike close by.
There’s no easy access to water/toilets/shower but the site clearly says that those aren’t to be expected so we weren’t let down. We brought water and set up a little fire and my dog loved the nice little clearing in the woods we found.
I felt very safe and tucked away. We woke up slowly to birds and sheep and general beautiful outdoors noises. Coffee in the clean quiet clearing was lovely. I didn’t have cell service (I’m tmobile) but my boyfriend (at&t) had 1-2 bars.
We will absolutely stay again! This was lovely and ask Ruston about the nearby beautiful quarry to fish/swim in and the horses to pet (near but not close enough to walk to I think).
