Our favorite destination is a XXXXX near XXXXX, XX. It is not an RV park or campground. It is a XXXXXX acre private ranch with a few roads, some grazing XXXXXXX, and minimal use. No laundromat, playground, hookups, or camp host. It is way off the highway, and no noise at all. We plan to xxx, xxx, xxxxxxxxx, and xxxx.

There is something special about camping in an RV.

My kind of camping for sure, consider yourself fortunate.

No AC in the heat of summer would get to the wife though but other than that, all you need is an extra deep cycle battery or small generator.

Sounds awesome. I have a seasonal campsite on a private ranch too. Been there for years and try to make it out almost every weekend during the summer. Can't imagine it any other way.

We did Astronomy there for a local non-profit and eventually asked for permission to stay on. My sweetheart knows the owner through business and yes, WE FEEL EXTRA FORTUNATE. The capacities of my trailer are perfect for a long weekend. Since there are no neighboring campers, we run a Honda 2000 and use about 150 feet of orange extension cord so that we barely hear it.

Limited. We have a Weboost, but the results are not great as the campsite is surrounded by low hills.

Unfortunately with this information now public the ranch owner will have to contend with others trying to do the same thing with or without permission.
