About Sasquatch Meadows
Sasquatch Meadows (named after the man, or "thing" himself) features two private campsites, which are nestled in a grove of pine trees. You can catch some shade at your site, go dip in your own private swimming hole, or stargaze in the adjacent meadow. You’ll also have a shared flush toilet(bring TP!) and a gravel square for a propane stove (when weather permits). You really can't go wrong at Sasquatch!

The vibe at Sasquatch Meadows
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is the best campsite I’ve ever been to. It’s amazing to be in a place that remote. The diversity of the experience is incredible - with the swimming hole, waterfall, woods, open space to see the stars, and even a flushing toilet! I wish Hipcamp nothing but success.
The bathroom was great and the camp spot was nice, but the swimming hole... Oh man, that swimming hole was magical! I almost forgot! When we were headed back, the way was not as clear and we took a wrong turn. Maybe a few exit signs would help. Overall it was a wonderful trip for the kiddos and I. Thank you!
Overall it was great! It’s in way more of a pristine condition than public places. The owners are awesome, they gave us helpful pointers and were very friendly. The site itself was great, there’s a lovely open meadow, and the creek is in such close proximity. My son loved the turtle in the swimming hole! Wildlife there is amazing.
Definitely more expensive than your average camping experience, but worth it completely.
Awesome little spot tucked away in the hills. The swimming hole is magical! Great place for a big group to rent out both campsites.
Beautiful spot! Other campsite was empty so we had the place to ourselves. Right next to the river as well. Be ready for the bugs! Other than that, couldn't have asked for more.
The site was amazing! There weren't any other campers so we had it to ourselves. The swimming hole was amazing...the creek hike was great. This place is super private and secluded! I would definitely go back!
Great campsite, definitely go #2 if not with group. Site would be amazing for a group of 4+

I suppose it's best to start from the beginning....the path which travel occurs, weaves through lakes, forgotten townships and an abundance of beauty. "4WD recommended" however, we made it (alive) with a Fiat500, up and down the unpaved road to the quiet sanctuary of Sasquatch Meadows.
Upon arrival, the camp was well maintained; cut grass, practically new picnic table (w/other folding tables - possibly left behind from other adventurers) and the "perk" of a new-ish lavatory (flushing toilet w/a washing basin outside).
The campsite poured into the meadow with paths spilling into your private brook.
I wish I had the words to describe the blankets of stars that surrounded the meadow at night and the calm of silence however, you'll just have to experience it for yourselves.
Things you'll use;
- A sense of adventure with the confidence of driving off-road (in a fiat people!).
- Sun screen & Bug spray.
- Waterproof shoes & floaties; the river is heavenly and spills into a mirid of swimming holes however, the rocks are slippery and the floaties just bring-on-the-fun.
I would recommend at least two days for this venture, there is just too much to enjoy.
Finding the site was a little trickier than we expected thanks to a misplaced Park Here sign and some site selection confusion upon arrival. Our confirmation had us booked in site #2 but the directions directed us to site #1. There were already guests at site #2, so we just set up camp in site #1. Site #1 is the more private of the two sites, so we didn't have a problem with this.
The site itself is relatively compact, with just enough space to pitch a five-person tent. Be aware of the abundant poison ivy and poison oak. It is everywhere and put a damper on exploring the surrounding bush. The mosquitoes are something fierce in the afternoon and evening. We sprayed ourselves with deet from head to toe and still walked away with a couple dozen bites each after just one night. Strangely enough, they were worse at the campsite than the water.
Restrooms are located in a simple outhouse with a flush toilet. There are two sinks that provide non-potable water. This was a nice surprise. The restroom was recently ravaged by a small animal that shredded whatever toilet paper remained into confetti. This, and the overflowing paper waste bucket, could definitely have used a cleaning by the landowners.
Going further afield, there is a great swimming hole right by Sasquatch Meadows, larger and deeper than the swimming area at Upper Falls. We also made the journey to Upper Falls and had the area to ourselves for a couple hours. A very peaceful spot with a couple flat rocks seemingly made for lounging (and yoga!). Other campers saw a rattlesnake on the path leading down to the falls so be aware.
Very secluded, which is nice. Lots of bugs so dont forget your off spray but there's a toilet and running sinks at your site. Waters are gorgeous and I wish I was there to explore a little longer. We met the property manager on the way out so THERE ARE HUMANS CONNECTED TO THIS PLACE! Don't be scared. Meeting him on our way out made me feel better about stayijg there again in the future.
We enjoyed this site - it was very secluded. Nobody was there, we had the place to ourselves, such a treat! The meadow was perfect for stargazing. We put our air mattress in the middle of the meadow and had a wonderful evening of clear sky and warm temp. The stars were great. Lots of mosquitoes in the area - it is critical to spray every exposed part of your body. We used a non-deet spray and it worked fine. The creek access here is limited. There's one nice spot but there's nowhere to really sit and hang out. The bathroom/outhouse is wonderful. Flushing toilet worked great and was clean. Sink and good mirror. Big sink on the outside served well for washing dishes. The whole area was very clean - not a speck of garbage.
Unreal. One of the most beautiful places we've ever visited! The campsite and bathroom were both spotless and sasquatch meadows were quiet, relaxing and private. We'll be back! PS: all of the other reviews recommendations and pro-tips were so useful!! Thanks y'all!
Loved it! We were lucky enough to have the entire campsite to ourselves. The swimming hole was amazing and much appreciated after a long drive from Portland. We were also very grateful for the pristine bathroom
Absolutely beautiful! The swimming hole is so peaceful.
One note on directions: when you get to the fork that says "upper falls" to the left and "sasquatch meadows" to the right, you follow the road to the right towards sasquatch meads and it says "park here" immediately. Do not park here. Turn down the road to the right and continue down. You will see the camps. It wasnt clearly marked to continue down the road and we were confused. we stayed at the first "park here" sign for a while looking around and finally decided to drive down the road. Good thing we did!
GORGEOUS!! Your own swimming hole, a meadow to set up your tent in, and some stunning waterfalls about a 10 min walk up the road. And the stars were unreal. It would have been nice to have a little bit more signage, we arrived at about the same time as the campers who were staying at the other site, and we had both set up our tents in the wrong place before we realized that the actual campsites were a little further down a road to the right of the main meadow. Also it would have been nice to have the sign for Upper Falls include how far up the road it was. But definitely coming back here with friends!
Absolutely loved it! The upper falls are beautiful - great swimming. Road is a little rough so be ready. Also Whiskey town lake is about 20mins away and absolutely gorgeous.
Would 100p recommend!
Absolutely beautiful place! It was off the beaten path and very peaceful. We loved it and although it was our first time using Hipcamp, it certainly won't be the last.
Sasquatch Meadows is incredibly remote. We didn't see any other campers during our stay, and had the entire place to ourselves. Be sure to bring the essentials: water, food, toilet paper, etc as there is none available on the property. There is a flush toilet which was great!
