My husband and I had a magical evening staying at the Old Homestead. We had a little trouble finding the place at first, my we called Curtis and he answered right away and was able to clear things up. This spot is very private and quiet, with only an occasional “moo” or cricket chirp in the distance. Perfect for stargazing too!!! We had a lot of fun exploring the property and would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
Communications were great as well as directions. I would say the site is not for most people. It is in a beautiful location, not completely hidden from the road, though. The cows were certainly curious, as described, and came around at night. There were quite a few (~20) that came to our site to look around, which by nighttime are not visible, but you can see the reflection from their eyes and hear them. Giving them a quick yell at least stopped or deterred them. Not for the faint of heart!
Great time at the old homestead! Got there late at night but was able to find the gate and set up camp while laughing at the cow's eyes looking back at us from across the field. Woke to the beautiful scenery and awesome "homestead" ruins to explore. After making a fire in the morning, we didn't want to leave. Thanks Curtis!
Very cool campsite! The cows were very cute and gave us plenty of space. Arrived after dark and had no issues finding the old homestead thanks to Curtis’ directions. Beautiful views in the in morning, a nice fire pit and total serenity all made for a great stay.
Curtis is a wonderful host! He was super communicative and very accommodating with a special request we had. I would probably recommend the spot more in the spring or summer than fall or winter, but it's a nice secluded spot with beautiful views.
Great primitive camping spot - we drove in along a dirt road in the snow in our 2WD Honda CR-V and it did just fine getting there. Easy to find with the hosts directions as well. It will be the property with half green gate and the other half wood - that’s how you’ll know you’re at the right place. You can set up camp anywhere on the property, we just chose a spot without snow below us. There was a fire pit we found and we found another board to make our own little cook space by the fire. We bought wood in the town of LOA before coming into the camp site. The wood at the first gas station upon entering LOA is $6.50 for a decent sized bundle. There are OTV trails about 2 or 3 miles from the campsite and a fish hatchery down the road as well. Coral Reef NP is about 20 minutes away and the drive to that is wondrous with all the cool geological landscape features. At the property itself are several old homestead buildings. We hiked up the little mountain across from the property and were able to see amazing views of the whole valley.

Quiet and relaxing with beautiful scenery surrounding. Curtis was very helpful with advice for local attractions and extremely responsive to questions. Super convenient to Capitol Reef (20 mins) and only about 75 minutes to Grand Staircase Escalante.
What a fun place to stay!
We had a fantastic time at the Old Homestead. It was fun to explore the grounds, and the scenery was beautiful. Many thanks to Curtis for being so accommodating and providing us with such great suggestions for hikes to take in the area. I would definitely recommend this campground.
