Our group of 10 booked a 4 night stay at the big cabin by the front entrance of the ranch. However, when we get there Jerry nonchalantly mentions that he had given our cabin to another group that just happen to check in before us. No apology or anything. So we were redirected to a much smaller cabin in the... More

Excellent place to get away and learn about nature. Lost of Deer, Bison and many more species of animals and birds. Very family orientated atmosphere. Great place to ride the quads or horses. We stayed their for 5 night and took 10 of our grandchildren with us and they didn't want to leave and can't wait until we go back... More

For Mom’s76th Birthday this year, we tried something a little different. The Bison Creek Ranch is a place in the Sierras just outside Mariposa near Yosemite National Park. It promised a true American experience where you could get back to a simpler time and enjoy the land unencumbered by the trappings of modern craziness. A form of rustic yet comfortable... More

Bison Creek Ranch is like no other vacation rental I’ve ever experienced. It is not for everyone – not for the elderly or mobility impaired, not for small children or those with allergies, not for those who are fussy or dirt-adverse – but for those people who are up for an adventure, for a visit “back in time” it’s pretty...

The bad first. I expected much more for $300 a night! And if we had been told a few things upfront it would have made this an easy 4 star visit. I don't think 5 stars is possible because for $300 a night you should have way more amenities (like toilet paper, clean sheets and towels...etc). You will need an... More

My friends and I needed to get away for the weekend. We wanted to go somewhere we could relax, disconnect and have a little adventure. This place provided exactly that. There were plenty of hiking trails to explore and lots of animals to see. The donkeys liked to visit us in the morning so we would feed them apples while... More

I have never been so disappointed and insulted by such a scam artist. None of the described amenities were real or were broken. The house did not have a refrigerator, kitchen and water was almost non existent. The skeet launcher was useless, road was almost impassable, jacuzzi was green, even the inter tubes we borrowed were leaking air. What a... More

Memorable stay at the Bison Creek Ranch, it really feels like you have gone back in time. Don't be expecting luxury,, it is a little grubby but it has an authentic ranch feel, strangely has great wi-fi. We made a campfire and enjoyed watching the stars and toasting marshmallows. We came from overseas, owner doesn't take credit cards, so a... More
