This campsite was great, with the best part being all the animals! There were horses, chickens, lots of friendly dogs, and even two litters of puppies. One of the dogs even curled up next to my hammock at night. There was a really beautiful creek to kayak down, which was relaxing and peaceful. The campsite also offered an incredible view of the stars at night!

Our family had a wonderful time at Tombstone Ranch! The best part was having a location where we could all setup several tents and an RV next to each other. We had the place to ourselves which was exactly what we were hoping for. Other highlights were the variety of animals in the property and some awesome campfires which our host had no problem providing us wood for. They have horses, dogs, puppies, chickens, turkeys etc. Bill was extremely accommodating and friendly. There were a couple kayaks we took out on the water which was great! Please note this water is not for swimming but it's great for checking out different wildlife from the kyaks. We took 15 min drive to Loon Lake during the day to cool off in the water. we also appreciated the clean porta potty during our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Tombstone Ranch. We had a group of 10 people so we rented 2 sites for the weekend and had a blast. The hosts are very accommodating and provided us with just about everything we asked for. The sites are good for both RVs and tents. There are some dogs and farm animals around and some very cute puppies. There is also some wildlife around the property if you are adventurous and want to paddle around in the kayaks to see it. If you like nature and being outdoors you'll like it at Tombstone Ranch.

First, I would start off by saying besides a few issues, we had a decent time camping here, like others have said there are lots of cute farm animals, I especially fell in love with the freindly turkey! They breed puppies so my kids loved the little puppies, They have horses and chickens too. What we didn't like, we thought we could camp more private away from others, but the furthest we could really get away was a little ways up in the forest. We camped during Memorial weekend so, there were a lot of other campers down in the meadow near the water. We have a toddler so that was another reason we did not want to be near the water. Everyone else who camped there stayed up really really late or should I say, until the sun was coming up. It was kinda loud because they sat around the communal fire playing drums and guitar. We had hoped to be able to camp far enough away for it not to bother us, but close enough we could walk down to enjoy the festivities and band but then escape back to our quite remote camp site but that was not the case. Also, I did not realize that the rooster, dogs barking and other animals would wake us up at the crack of dawn! So there were people keeping us up at night and animals waking us at 3am. Also, the dogs roam freely and I like dogs, but more than once they came up to our camp and stole food we had sitting out. We cooked up a nice steak for dinner and left it up on the table to rest, we turned around for a minute and "poof" it was gone and a dog licking his chops. So gone was our dinner. Lastly, by the second day of the weekend the port a potty was so over full, it was unusable and distgusting. It was nearly overflowing with crap, no pun intended. So that left us and our kids unsure what to do about going potty, I had to drive three miles to the nearst store for us to go to the bathroom a few times and that was a hassle. I am torn writing this because like others have said, Bill is a very gracious host, I personally would not camp here again because we prefer more privacy and peace and quite, however, that is just our preference and for others, this might be just the place for you if you don't mind camping with others nearby keeping you up, being woken up early by the animals and having your food stolen by dogs.

you can see the other campers down in the meadow.Tombstone RanchMy fave, the turkey! cute puppies!

Bill and Rick were great hosts. The first night we were there Bill grilled a tri-tip and some chicken, made some BBQ beans, and corn and invited the guests to eat with him. It was an unexpected treat.

The camping area is definitely rustic. I didn't quite know what to expect. The area has the great aesthetic of a ranch even down to the outhouse Bill made himself.

They raise golden retrievers on the ranch and, honestly, they were an unexpected delight. I'm sure my family would have had a great time regardless, but the retrievers really pushed it to the next level. They were lovable, loving, protective, and had great personalities. We will never forget Jester, Zoe, Nala, Butters, Goldie, and Remmy and hope we see them all again. They protect the ranch from coyotes and raccoons and set up sentry around the camp. It was honestly very comforting to know they were there. And kinda like having our own pride of lions.

We'll definitely be back.

Tombstone Ranch is staying on a working farm. There are pigs, cows, chickens, dogs (they breed Retrievers) and a horse! All are friendly even the hosts Rick and Bill.
Beautiful setting for a cow pasture.

Underground Spring is basically a stand still marsh. Fun to canoe in but wouldn't swim in it.

Putting a picture of the "decorative" truck that their actual address is on would have been helpful.

Tombstone ranch was beautiful and secluded and we had an overall great time, however, it is not quite as advertised. We went there expecting to be able to fish, kayak and swim right out of our campdoor based on the site description and reviews. It wasn't a bad experience by any means I just wish we knew a little more so we could have been prepared so hopefully this will help someone else out.
Pros:
-Beautiful, peaceful,secluded location. There was no one there when we were there
-Clean site and grounds
-Friendly host and staff, they even invited us over for dinner one night and brought us fresh eggs from the chickens.
-The animals were very friendly. There were puppies while we were there that were adorable and fun for the kids to play with
-Very minimal misquitos, I think only 2 people got bites
-Outhouse was as clean as an outhouse can possibly be
-Lots of wildlife to watch! We saw lots of birds, turtles, frogs, and even deer crossing the pond. The coyotes at night were cool to listen to.
-Water was clear and clean great for kayaking or canoeing
-The dogs were very protective of the land from coyotes and anything else that didnt belong so we appreciated that because we could hear that the coyotes were close at night.
-The Stars at night are amazing! Do yourself a favor and get up or stay up til about 2am when you can see them all.
-Only about a 20 minute drive to Loon Lake for swimming and supplies
-One of the dogs slept with our oldest in his tent and it was adorable

CONS:
-While the water was clear it was not swimmable, the vegetation was thick and only about a foot from the surface.
-No fishing off the bank and the vegetation was thick everywhere so we didn't try off the kayaks
-While all the dogs are super sweet they jumped up and scratched our truck as soon as we arrived, nothing that can't be buffed out.
-The dogs were always at our campsite, this is both a pro and a con because we love dogs but all of them being there all the time was a bit much and they didn't listen when we told them to go home.
-We had to constantly watch our food so the dogs didn't take it.
-There is very little shade depending on where you pull in. I wish we would have known so we could have brought a shade tent. We needed electrical so we had to be close to the hookup which left us unshaded completely.
-The dogs get into anything that is left out including garbage. We thought we had put ours up high enough but we came home to garbage strewn all over our campsite
-Campsites are mostly dirt and dried weeds which again isn't a big deal if you know. We put down outdoor rugs and it was fine.
-This wasn't necessarily a con for us but it is something to note that with all the animals comes all the animal noises that WILL wake you up. The dogs are protecting the property all night and bark all night long. Like I said we could hear the coyotes so we appreciated the dogs for that.
