As stated by its name, the ranch is owned by Government agent Mike Toreno. However, the ranch becomes available as a save point after Carl Johnson receives a mystery phone call from the ranch upon completing the mission Yay Ka-Boom-Boom. When the player has started these missions the game can be saved there. A boat dock can be found in the ranch's lake, and what appears to be a small garage is located next to the ranch. However, no vehicles can be saved here.
The ranch is located on a dirt road which turns off from the San Fierro Bypass and runs past the ranch before rejoining the road outside Las Barrancas. Because of this, a relatively high volume of traffic passes the ranch.
After completing Vertical Bird, heavy weapons will spawn in the house.
Tip: To stock up on ammunition for the above weapons, pick up the weapon(s) desired, save the game (at the ranch) and repeat.
- Washington - Because this particular Washington is a government vehicle, entering it will automatically give the player a one star wanted level. Later in the game, however, this wanted level is disabled.
For some reason, NPC vehicles will spawn on the portion of road just in front of the ranch and drive away under certain circumstances.

- Inside the ranch house, there is a large poster-sized map of San Andreas on the wall. This is actually a beta map of San Andreas, and it features several differences from the final version of the game; For example, in the beta map, the town of Bayside doesn't exist, and there is a small island in the middle of San Fierro Bay which isn't there in the final game.
- An identical map can also be found inside the Lil' Probe Inn.
