We have owned the ranch since 1971 and Judy created the hostel in 1982. The AYH Ranch may no longer be an American Youth Hostel, but the name stuck around, and we do continue to provide an original, western-themed camping experience here on Vashon Island. Something we hope to do for years to come, yet
There is a lot to do around the Ranch. We have group campfire pits, a sand volleyball court, pleasant nature trails, croquet, and a pool table. There is even more to do, however, on Vashon Island or just a short foot ferry ride away in Downtown Seattle.
