Hosted by

Enjoy solitude and unobstructed views from the knoll at Retro Star Ranch.  The knoll has two dirt levels, each capable of hosting multiple cars and trailers.  Just about a mile off the paved road, you will need a vehicle capable of getting a little dirty and venturing off the beaten path (as long as it's not wet you could do it in a sedan).

Second weekend in a row at Retro Star Ranch which should speak for itself regarding a review. Bryan is an excellent host and the location is beautiful. Highly recommend and will be back again shortly. Book it before WE do!

The site was great but there definitely wasn’t a lake or anything near by or much to do outside of hiking unlike it said online. That aside we had a blast once we found the location which took a bit. I loved how private it was and yet still open and spacious. We definitely plan to go back!

Response from Bryan, the Host, on May 18th, 2020

Sorry you missed out on Causey Reservoir, only 3 miles away as well as the entire South Fork of the Ogden River which has great fishing and places to explore. Red Rock Ranch also offers horseback riding even closer. Hipcamp does a poor job of explaining what is nearby. Did we mention bird watching and star gazing? That's what this place is all about. Thanks for the review though.

The Knoll is a beautiful setting with gorgeous views. Everything was great...with the exception of the area having a fair share of ATV activity which is mildly disturbing. Beautiful region to explore for drives, hikes and boating. Brian is a great host and checked in with us from his site down the hill.

Beautiful view, quiet location and a close drive offers plenty of water access (between Causey Res, Ogden River and Pineview Res). No shade or trees, so make sure you bring your a shade option. Rocky ground, so if you need to tether your tent, be sure to bring stout stakes and a hammer.

We stayed at the Knoll two weeks ago and we booked the Knoll and the Dome one night this week. Spectacular views! Love that there are no amenities or people. There aren’t many trees so it does get hot. Would recommend bringing a shade structure if you will there during the day. We plan to book again.

Beautiful spot. Make sure to bring something for shade as there isn't really any on the site. Also don't forget to bring lots of water.

We took a road trip across the country and this was definitely the most beautiful site that we stayed at. Nestled into a valley in the mountains with beautiful views and really secluded. The road wasn't hard to navigate in a sedan, even when it had rained a little.
