CAMPING AT THE RANCH

Eagles Nest

Choose to camp Eagles Nest and be perched at the top of Ascension Ranch for amazing views of Folsom Lake by day, and city lights by night. This is a spectacular multi-tiered site that gets lots of sunshine, and is set up with the common area being at the highest point for the best views in the house, also boasting a rock-lined fire pit and large picnic table. Take a few steps down to the lower tier for a nice flat tent-area that can comfortably house 2-4 tents depending on size. For those who crave more privacy, you're welcome to wonder anywhere above or below the tiered area to find an exclusive tent-pad that tickles your fancy. This is the ideal pick for those who are seeking more sun than shade, a whole lot of privacy, and un-obstructed views with walk-out / ride-out trail head access to a private portion of the upper Darrington Trail (~5 minutes to the lake by car, 15 by hoof, and 30 by foot).

Hold Your Horses

Hold your HORSES offers guests a complete horse immersed experience - The site is located in our large pasture where our friendly herd of horses often come to visit campers for treats and pets. They can typically be "shoed" away but have been known to hang out around meal time, begging for treats. They truly enjoy camping , but truly enjoy camping with our guests. If at any time you'd prefer the horses be removed just let your host know!

The campsite can easily accommodate larger groups and up to 4 tents. Follow a walking path from any of the tents and it will lead you back to the common area which is home to a rock-lined fire pit and large picnic table.  Nestled in among our lower pasture, the views are of an oak savanna and rolling hills. This is the ideal pick for those who are seeking a little bit of shade, a whole lot of privacy, and walk-out / ride-out trail head access a stones-throw away.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION & RANCH RULES

  • Guests must sign a Ranch Waiver prior to visiting.

  • Guests must text for Gate Code upon arrival.

  • Campsite group must obtain a campfire permit: http://permit.preventwildfiresca.org/

  • There are times fire-bans are put in effect, sometimes with no ability to provide guests any notice - it is ALWAYS a good idea to bring a propane stove for cooking. We are currently in a fire-ban.

  • When no fire ban is in place, it is OK to burn sticks and branches found on the ground - we also have firewood delivery available which can be purchased during the reservation process, or by contacting your ranch host.

  • If you open a gate, please close it securely behind you - this is a working ranch with livestock roaming freely in most pastures.

  • Don't let the animals out, no matter how kindly they ask, or how hard they push.

  • Be respectful of all animals, and other guests on the ranch, we don't like rules and yellow tape, so use common sense when it comes to noise, quiet time, etc.

  • Pack out everything you pack in - if something doesn't fit in the trash-can at your site, please pack it out with you

  • Clean up after yourself, and help folks that forget - Don't leave anything behind on the trails. Leave the bathrooms clean and tidy, even though it's a porta-potty.

  • This is a private property and we expect every guest to treat the ranch with respect

  • We are pet friendly, however all visiting dogs must remain on-leash, and it's important to know we have free-range Livestock Guardian Dogs who are permitted to roam the ranch protecting their animals from predators - they may visit your site a couple times during your trip - no extra charge for the security!
