We are thankful for Wally and his family to allowed us to stay at their beautiful ranch. Make sure you check out the donkeys and they are adorable and super friendly. Thanks again Wally I hope we can meet up again, definitely will come back whenever I’m on the area. For our family this is really pleasure meeting this beautiful family. 🤙

A great relaxing stay

We had a wonderful stay on a nice, quiet, level spot for the night. Since we were next door to BLM open space, we had nice walks with our dog. We also really enjoyed visiting with the host’s horses and donkeys! Thank you for a great stay!

Hosts with hearts of gold

If you leave the Happy Gates Ranch without petting the donkeys you definitely missed a great experience. I spend a few days with Wally Gater's family during corona time and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. I even got the chance to brush a donkey and sit on a horse. I hope we'll see again very soon. Thanks for everything guys!

Happy at Happy Gates

We stayed at Happy Gates for one night with plans to visit Valley of Fire State Park, which is very close by. W greeted us and provided a nice, level spot to park our rig and even provided 15 amp power. W was a wonderful host and gave us a tour of his delightful ranch. We enjoyed meeting his beautiful dogs, horses and adorable miniature donkeys. W also let us leave our rig while we toured the park, and for that, we are very grateful. This is a wonderful BW location with a very kind and interesting host. Thank you, W, for your incredible hospitality!

Wally and Kathy are very kind and gracious hosts. We are grateful for having the opportunity of meeting and petting their very sweet and intelligent animals (dogs, horses, donkeys). We hope to visit the Ranch again in the future. Thank you Wally and Kathy!
