Marcia, thank you so very much for the kind review! We're thrilled you found being "off the grid" to be the perfect vacation. We hope you'll join us again as off the grid in the Ponca area is wonderful here year 'round! :)

We visited BOC in July 2015 and had a wonderful time. The staff was very helpful in our questions of which hikes to take, setting up our zip line and attending to our needs in our cabins. We can't wait to return to BOC soon!
