They will give you a map [at the office], but there is no need to stop at the RV place. Just when you get off highway, continue past RV entrance to stoplight and turn right onto US 92, go 1/4 mile and take a right onto Castlewood Rd. 1/2 mile, ranch is on left.[Heather Forrey, 03/09/2013]

Super idea for recycling old mobile trailers. Admittedly copied the Cadillac Ranch on Route 66, but in addition the Airstream Ranch is a showcase for a charity (autism). What more! Remember, right next to Bates RV, "Vintage Airstream Village. Five ancient caravans that make you travel in time."[Alain-Claude Mainguet, 05/11/2011]
- Dover, Florida - Airstream Ranch: Attraction, Yes; Art, Maybe
Airstream Ranch: It's taken two years of legal battles, but Florida's Airstream Ranch is now officially not a bad thing. But it's not officially art, either. [02/15/2010] Complete Story...
As a driver for a packaging goods vendor, I often drive by the Airstream Ranch. I always find myself looking forward to seeing the site. I'm not sure why, but the Airstream Ranch has some kind of attractiveness to it.
I hope that whatever legal issues this Airstream Ranch has caused have been resolved positively, so that the site can remain.[steven, 09/11/2009]
The Airstream Ranch is very much alive. I took several HDR shots of the RVs, but could not get far enough back to capture all of them at once (I would have had to stand in the middle of Highway 4!). I needed a much higher wide angle lens, like the kind Ahren Davis used.[Peter Bates, 07/11/2009]
