My friends and I found the Ponderosa ranch through a park ranger reference. The haphazard find was welcomed. The first thing we all said to each other was, "are we only going to stay here one night?" The facility has swimming pool, hot showers, spa treatments, various nightly events, fooz-ball, basketball courts, and etc. The modern facilities are supplemented, or complemented, depending on how you see it, by events like rodeo. All of these things were included in our $10 a person charge to pitch the tent.
Our only and major complaint is that we had a very prolonged disturbance by a group of rowdy campers. The management was seen earlier on their ATVs, but never saw them address the issue. We had to wake-up at five in the morning and the group continued their festivities until midnight; of course, we are all a little grumpy in the morning.
