A view of the lake

experience douglas lake ranch the old fashioned way

For the more adventurous and rustic experience, we have some exciting options for even the most seasoned camper. First of all, our Yurts are the ultimate experience of keeping in touch with the outdoors, with minimal environmental impact. We have moved Yurts around from location to location in the past, without leaving much of a footprint at all. The Yurts are completely gas and gravity run, so this means obviously means no electricity. A Yurt is a pleasant experience to say the least, once a Yurt guest always a Yurt guest! We are also excited to offer some exceptional private campgrounds in a few different locations on the Ranch. It sure is a piece of mind knowing that your campsite is waiting for your arrival!


private camping

camping at crater lake

crater lake camping
This crystal clear, gem of a lake has 2 completely separated "camp deck" sites. Located just past Alleyne lake through our private access gate. These are the only two campsites on all of Crater Lake. At one time, Yurts were located on these same grounds. A large framed deck, fire pit, picnic table and outhouse are at each location. There are no boats provided at these sites and 4x4 vehicles are recommended as the terrain is fairly steep getting in and out. Trailers and campers are permitted at both sites. Firewood is not provided at these sites.

Daily fee is $40.00 per site. A minimum 2 nights is required. A maximum of two vehicles is permitted.

camping at Alleyene Lake

Alleyene Camping
Located on the far end of the lake through our private access gate are 5 rustic yet beautiful campsites overlooking the crystal clear Alleyne Lake.

dlr lakeside yurts

It is hard to describe the airy, bright feeling you get from staying in a Yurt.  They are a circular tent (24' diagonal), originally designed by the Mongols.  Nowadays, they are constructed of heavy canvas, covering a sturdy lattice frame.  All of our Yurts are insulated and have a steeped roof culminating in a skylight dome. 
Equipped with a wood stove, cozy futon couch, coffee table dining area and two bunk beds with a double on the bottom and single on top, the Yurt offers a serene and uncommon sanctuary for up to 6 people.  The kitchen is stocked with dishes, cutlery, pots and pans as well as a sink complete with hot and cold running water.  A propane refrigerator, stove and lighting ensures you have all the comforts of home!  An outdoor shower with hot water and an outhouse complete the 'Yurt' experience. We have a total of 5 Yurts in 4 different locations on the Ranch. Each offers a unique experience.
