Old corrals and grassy meadows make Several tent sites to choose from, but no worries we only allow one group on the property at a time so you'll always have the place to yourself. Bordered by hundreds of acres of wetland wildlife preserve full of streams, ponds, and a river, great for fishing or bird watching. Cows roam free here at the old homestead (June through October keep gate closed), they're very friendly and love circling around a campfire, but you will need to take precaution to secure your belongings if you plan to leave them unattended, the're very curious. If you get tired of the company a quick H'yah! Git! will send them wandering off the property. 20 miles to Capitol Reef National Park, 20 miles to Fish Lake, 5 miles to Torrey.

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.
