Camp & Ride Weekends

Big Valley Ranch is a private facility that provides an opportunity for people to come out to the property to ride the trails and camp on the property 8 times a year.  You may camp for one night or for 3 nights, but the dates must fall inside our dates listed below as we are not a public campground and are not open 7 days a week.  Camping and horse accommodations are listed below open dates.  Reservations are required and close on the Wednesday of each open ride at 5pm.  We no longer offer any day passes.  Feel free to send us an email or call with any questions!




In the Event Big Valley Ranch decides to cancel the open ride weekend, the rain date would be set for the following weekend or you can scheudle for a different open ride weekend. No refunds will be given for open weekends. House rentals will not be refunded and not moved to the following weekend.
