Forest's land is a pretty fantastic little spot - though, I shouldn't say little. He's on quite a bit of land, and you're basically devoid of neighbors besides the horses and 2 friendly little dogs.
I'm mostly unfamiliar with Utah, but the drive up there was spectacular. The landscape changes drastically ever hour, and his land specifically was probably the most green area I've seen in the state.
In terms of camping, everything was easy. Just follow his written directions, then when you get there look forward to the soft flat ground, trees for shade, chairs to sit at. The land feels alive, and while sitting and listening, you can hear many many different kinds of birds/frogs. Really quite relaxing.
Overall, he was a great host, and I would definitely recommend this spot if you're in the area.
A private paradise
Forrest’s property is absolutely beautiful.
We arrived in the evening and with his perfect directions we were able to drive right to it. We knew as soon as we saw the view that we made the right choice. There was so much land for my sister’s puppy to explore and never get bored. Forrest has quite a lot of space and he maintains it very well.
The site is nestled between Forrest’s lovely home and his horse pasture and pen. His horses were quite curious and very charming. The grove of trees that serve as the campsite provide lots of shade during the day. There were multiple places to set up tents that would be shaded at different points during the day.
Forrest provides a table big enough to prepare meals and some picnic style chairs that can be used for meal times.
There is a large fire pit that would allow for a large group to sit around. There was even a spot where we could light charcoals to cook in a Dutch oven. The firewood is complimentary, but we brought some bundles to supplement to prevent using more than our share.
The host provided a port-a-potty that was very clean and well maintained.
Overall, this camp was a treasure to experience and I am SO looking forward to the opportunity to return in the future.
Beautiful and shady spot - it was a very hot day so the shade and slight breeze was pleasant. We love wildlife- saw deer and a variety of birds. Forrest was very hospitable and his property well kept.
Beautiful view ans friendly host
This site is beautiful and has a very nice view of open fields and horses! Forrest was a great host, he was welcoming and kind and gave us all information clearly. :)
Forrest made us feel at home!!
Forrest brought us fresh veggies from his garden when we arrived! He introduced us to his sweet ponies which included a young one named Happy! The sunset view of th UNITA Mountains was amazing- we will definitely return!
Beautiful ranch for stargazing
The ranch is beautiful and Forrest was very welcoming! Amazing views of the night sky and Milky Way, the campsite was clean, and I would recommend this camp to everyone in the area!
Forest’s ranch is good for the soul
It was an absolute honer to stay at Uinta Springs Ranch and to be hosted by Forest. The property was incredibly diverse and so well taken care of on top of being beautiful. Forest was the best host I could ever imagine having and his horses were truly magical!
