Ben & Kayla

Ben and Kayla purchased Golden Pines in September 2017, having worked as geologists in Texas for almost a decade (both have Masters Degrees in Geology). They are passionate about hospitality and passionate about rocks, and they love to talk about either to anyone who is interested!  Please say "Hi" if you see them around the park!

Fun Facts: Ben is an 11-year military veteran, and Kayla is a talented player of the viola.



After 30 years of the corporate experience and almost two years of nonstop "Bucket List" travels, decided to try the workamping lifestyle. Gotta say, GREAT way to meet some outstanding people and keep, even restore, the spring in your step. Whether guest, or campground host, time spent at Golden Pines is sure to be the place to please. Ben and Kayla will certainly insure that, as they continually improve this already beautiful, and extremely well situated, campground.

Fun Facts: An avid novice photographer and target archer, the Sierras remain my favorite area, by far, to visit and explore.


Kenny, Autumn and Ryder

Kenny, Autumn and Ryder are brand new RVers though their rig is a 1988 Ford Mallard. Originally from Minnesota, they are taking some time to be together and explore while they're young.

Fun Facts: Kenny could eat tacos for every meal (in fact he did while on vacation in Mexico once). Autumn can sew pretty well and can make a mean spaghetti sauce. Ryder can almost sleep through the night at the young age of 7 weeks.



Tatonka is a four year old sheepdog mix, who is full of energy and love! He is perhaps our most enthusiastic host, and you'll often find him hanging out in the park office or out begging for treats. Tatonka can't wait to meet you during your next visit at Golden Pines!

Fun Facts: Tatonka loves kids and will also answer to the name "Taco".
