Welcome to Wilderness Ranch...

...where quiet seclusion meets adventurous possibilities! Imagine hosting your next church gathering, youth camp, family reunion, or corporate retreat on our 32 acres of beautiful, wooded land. We offer a commercially equipped kitchen, indoor/outdoor dining halls, and picnic tables for community meals.

There is also a ramada which can be used for large gatherings, and an expansive meadow which provides the perfect place for group activities during the day, or stargazing at night, away from the light pollution of the city.

There are several rustic Old West themed cabins which have electricity and heat. Combined, Wilderness Ranch offers sleeping facilities for 150.

RVs & travel trailers are welcome! Some areas offer full hook ups, while other areas offer water and electricity. There are courtesy dump stations available as well (see map for locations).

Tents can be set up almost anywhere. Feel free to pitch your tent with others or step away from the crowd and be one with nature!

Don't be a stranger! Come mosey on over to our Tours page and take a gander!

Please see our maps page for more detail on our location.

  • Cabin Renovations
  • Laundry Room for guests

  • ...Stay tuned!
