Dog-friendly campsite: Starry Hollow Ranch

An adorable alpaca

On our latest trip through Utah, we used HipCamp to book an incredible stay at Starry Hollow Ranch in Rush Valley. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised with the property, the sweet owners, and the cutest family of rescue animals. The property had endless land for doggies to run around and explore!

Our campsite

The drive into the ranch was breathtaking, and we were stunned by the 360-degree mountain views. We set up camp in the woods at the back of the property, and we went to visit the beautiful animals. I have to admit, they were taken aback to see a bulldog.

The alpacas’ facial expressions were hilarious
They look like they’re in a band
They all backed up swiftly when they saw me

I guess it’s safe to say the alpacas weren’t going to get close enough to play, so I moved on to check out the goats and chickens.

The luxury chickens
The chicken coop was stylish
Actually, all the animals were living in style
The goats were also not very interested in me
I was pretty jealous when I found out they wanted to hang with my mom and dad
This llama and horse are besties

The owners of the ranch, Genny and Shayne, educated us on the rescue animals and gave us a fun tour of the property. They are working on expanding the ranch to include a large camping area, and they love hosting RVs, campers, and events on their property. We definitely plan to be back in the future. Here is a link to their site if you’re interested in booking:

Rating for Starry Hollow Ranch:

We all enjoyed our stay at Starry Hollow, and we honestly can’t wait to go back. The owners had big hearts and had true passion for what they do. The campsite was comfortable and felt very quiet and remote, yet safe. There were incredible hikes around the area. The best part was obviously the adorable animals, even though they didn’t want to play with me! However, I know how it feels to be a rescue, so I can understand why they’re scared. I highly recommend checking out this spot if you’re ever passing through Rush Valley, Utah, and I hope you enjoyed our story! Stay tuned for our next dog-friendly adventure.

  1. I LOVE THIS PLACE! Once the border opens we are heading there for sure. I haven’t spent much time in Utah but that will be a place to visit for sure. I have a soft spot for goats and that snuggly one reminds me of my old pet goat, Patrick. Thank you so much for sharing.
