We are on our way home from Ghost Mountain RV Ranch. The grounds are pristine. The staff are kids d and helpful. The breakfast 🍳 ice cream 🍦 and snack bar are yummy and very reasonably priced. Sad 😭 part is their brochure are false. The fishing pins that they said was well stocked and the horse riding were not there. We did enjoy the pool and the hiking and the atmosphere. I always felt safe. Granddaughter had a good time. Sales folks were low pressure but our appt was at noon and we had to wait 39 minutes. Then he still took 1.5 hours. Not cool. We did get the iPad, but the gas rebate is sort of a scam if you do the numbers. Still we had a good time.read more

We have been members since 1979. I have to say, other than the first 10 years, this is the best staff we have ever had at Ghost Mountain. We were literally stranded in the snow and the staff members took us into the Pollack Pines to buy chains and then put them on for us. When we became stuck, they encouraged and helped us. I cant say enough about this place. If you are looking for a wonderful place to build memories with your family, I highly suggest you secure your membership as soon as possible. You won't regret it!!!read more
