    Greg was an awesome host. The parking area was level and had access to electricity. I also have excellent cell service using my Verizon hotspot. The ranch has some wonderful walking paths and the view was beautiful. Highly recommend and hope to stay again in the future.

    Safe and secure spot to overnight. I was grateful for the 30 amp hookup so we could use our AC. Easy pull through with level rock gravel. A LOT of small, paved country roads to get there however.

    Had an awesome night sleep, enjoyed riding our bikes over the expansive ranch trails and enjoyed a butterfly spectacle! Thanks so much for hosting.

    Greg and Barb are very friendly and interesting people, really enjoyed chatting with them as we arrived. Their property is incredible and we wish we had had more time to explore. They made sure all of our needs were met. They showed exceptional kindness. We hope to return soon! Thank you Greg, Barb, Willie, Big Foot, and Buffalo!

    This was a very pleasant stay. Host came up shortly after arrival to assist in area for parking and discussed what was around. Showed us an area we could use to take a walk, which we did. Had a peaceful walk with the dogs. We were about to the the dogs roam around off leash. We were the only campers and it was quiet. Will stay here again when in the area.
