We took the hard way in and it was really winding and bumpy.
Camp spot was nice and quiet. And you couldn't ask for a better host. Verizon signal was ok but lost signal sometimes even with WeBoost.
Turn around was a little tight with 40 ft but doable.
We went to the VFW on Friday night and had a nice time visiting with host.
We stayed over 4th of July. Town had a neat little parade-vendor booths and kids activities.
All in all a very nice visit.
We had an amazing stay at the Ranch. We were able to see family, do a little fishing and relax.
Our host was very accommodating, (we needed to make changes during our stay).
Enjoyed our time here, we will be back!!
Such a lovely property. Lots of space, and incredible wide views of the night sky that you rarely see in a forested area like this. Host was A+.
We had a lovely stay. The one-lane road in was slow going but once we got to the ranch it was a very nice stay. The pond was shaded and relaxing. Our girls caught quite a few fish. D. was so welcoming and we would definitely come again.
This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay. What a great host and a beautiful property. He was just so accommodating and easy going. My wife and I would definitely go again and probably will. My wife was a little unsure at first because we were so far off the main road but our host with his 3 helpers Tiny, Vegas and Misty (queensland heelers) and his horse Dominic put us at ease right away. Thanks for the "Happy Trails"
Had a wonderful, quiet stay! Roads leading there are a little tight but easily made it with our 35’ rig and toad. So much space to spread out and relax. Host was wonderful and our girls loved their horse who came right up to welcome us! If you are looking for a quiet place to relax this is it. Can’t wait to stay again!
The host and property are fantastic. So much area to explore. Must visit the pond, chat at the horse and get some love from the pups. Parking was level and offered wonderful views.
