I was involved with selling properties at Lake Pillsbury Ranch when it was first offered to the public (very selectively) in the late 60's. I was most impressed with the fact that they DID have stringent rules and regulations i.e. CCR's. that guaranteed the quiet and peacfulness that folks would drive this far just for that purpose. Do you want to drive to the middle of a National forest, just to hear off road machines and loud music day and night?? I think not. There are many, many places those folks can go. Lake Pillsbury Ranch is not the place - thankfully! This little piece of heaven is beautiful - and I'm so glad it turned out just the way the original owners wanted it to. If you want beauty - peace and quite - and pure nature... This is your place. If you're looking for the rough and tumble outdoor bubba crowd... it's down the road quite a-ways lol. Not many places like Lake Pillsbury Ranch. Enjoy!
