Stay with us in beautiful Rogue River, Oregon, just 5 miles off of I-5 at Exit 48. Are you meeting friends and family and looking for a half way point on I-5? We are in the middle between San Francisco and Portland as well as a mid point between Los Angeles and Seattle. Heading to Crater Lake, The Oregon Caves, The Britt Festivals, Ashland Shakespearean Theatre? We are super close to Medford, Ashland and Grants Pass, Oregon. If you're looking to enjoy one of Medford or Grants Pass' Breweries or you'd like to take a wine tour in Southern Oregon's wine country, it's all nearby. Enjoy the Rogue River Jet Boat river excursions or one of the many rafting or kayaking adventures in the area. Old Town Jacksonville is a nice outing, Central Point has a family fun center with miniature golf and a huge arcade as well as bumper cars and other fun activities.
Property consists of meadows, woods, protected pull-in spots among the large Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir trees as well as Incense Cedars and Madrones. This acreage is beautiful and has many wonderful hiking areas. You can hike up the mountain and then keep going for about 3 miles along the ridge heading south. Birds are abundant as are many deer and elk and all of the animals you'd expect in the woods, there are many regular visitors.
AVAILABLE April through October - we have an outdoor open hot shower with on demand hot water that heats up to hotter than anyone could desire, so adjust the temp to your hearts content! It rocks to be able to get clean with hot water after recreating.
WINTER CAMPING begins November 1st and we only invite self-contained RV camping after this date, since we don't provide a porta-potty or shower during the winter months. Next Spring we will re-open to tent camping and the Porta Potty and shower will be available again when temperatures are more conducive to tent camping. After November 1st, during freezing temperatures, we discontinue water service at each site, due to freezing hoses, etc.
There is plenty of fire wood cut, seasoned and available to purchase at the campground and Sites 1,2,3, 5 and 6 have burn pits. Site 4 has a wood stove you can burn a fire in, since site 4 is nestled well within the trees any open burning would not be safe. Bring your own fire starter, paper, matches, etc. Site 7 does not have access to a fire pit.
Games are available upon request and can be played in your site or in front of the stacked firewood, near the hand washing station. We've got Ladder Ball and Corn Hole, etc. The Horseshoe pit is always available across from Site 1 in the small orchard.
Water on demand and BBQ's are available at most sites, see Site descriptions for details.
Site 1 - Lower Meadow - Site 1 allows multiple tents and there is a large picnic space and a picnic table and a nice sized inground burn pit for families and small groups. Site 1 provides 30 amp RV electricity and also has regular 110 electrical plugins at the pole. Water is available for your RV or camping use. There is a large propane BBQ with an additional side burner for pans or you can cook over the open fire of the burn pit with a hanging rack we provide. This site also has limited use of the on site RV, including a 4 burner propane cook stove and an RV table for 4, but no guests are allowed to sleep overnight in it.

Site 5 is on the other half of this large meadow.
Site 3 - Secluded Honeymooners spot – Perfect for 2 people in a tent, van, or small RV.

There is not any electricity in the site but with its own 2 Adirondack chairs, foot stools & side table, a mini Weber kettle BBQ (bring your own charcoal, fire starter, etc.) and now we added a new small fire pit for those evening fires, maybe smores is what you love. This is a favorite spot, so private and green. It does have a bit of poison oak in the surrounding bushes, so take caution if you choose this nice secluded spot to stay within the site itself. Enjoy this sweet little spot by surrounding yourself with greenery and privacy. April - October we have a water hose for your use and fire protection for your BBQ and Fire Pit. Easy to socially distance from others here. Enjoy the sounds of the birds!

You have your own propane BBQ and a large outdoor Wood Stove that you can make a fire in. There is so much overhang of trees we prefer to keep fires within the wood stove. It is truly camping in the woods on a rough trail. We did excavate a nice, large flat tent pad. Very green and yet conveniently located off of our long driveway. If you are looking for more seclusion and a feel of being in the greenery at the base of our mountain, then this site is perfect for you. No large motorhomes in this site. If Site 6 is open, you can pull all of the way through instead of backing up. April - October you have water on demand in this site. Easy to socially distance from others here. Site 4 has its own trash can. Site floor is dirt and forest floor. You are in the woods. Enjoy!

It has a beautiful propane BBQ, April - October you have water on demand and a lovely burn pit. It is truly camping in the open meadow and great for star gazing at night. You can see site 2 across the meadow when campers are there - but there is tons of space in the large distance between you. Your site ends where the garden timbers mark the dividing line down the middle of the meadow. Conveniently located off of our long driveway. If you are looking for a more open space to see the sky and a feel of being in the open, then this site is large and perfect for you. Multiple tents can be set up in this site. Any size RV can stay in this site. We suggest you park in the road before pulling into this site to feel the slight slope of the land and choose where you do and don't prefer to drive and where you might want to park. Easy to socially distance from others here. Site floor is dirt and meadow grass. There is poison oak close to the driveway, then just meadow grass within the meadow itself. This is a meadow we mow periodically. We are in the process of clearing and burning brush in this site, so there are two burn piles here that we are working on, so don't drive in or walk within these spots please. This is a nice big space. It's a favorite! DIRECTIONS: Located past the 2nd gate, past Site 2, keep going and on your right before the old metal shed (needs to be torn down) - just pull in anywhere.
Site 6 - Parking in seclusion - perfect secluded site for sleeping in your vehicle. This is just a secluded pull in level spot to park. We provide 2 red camping chairs for your convenience.

Enjoy the Horse shoe pit across from Site 1 and enjoy games that you can play in front of the wood area. You can utilize the overflow parking area up the hill past the porta potty if you want some extra space. This is a great spot for hikers who just want to be in the woods and go walking up the mountain. DIRECTIONS: Come through the 1st open gate, keep going through the 2nd open gate, keep going past Site 2 on the right and then when you see Site 5 on your right - it is directly across from Site 5 on your left.
Site 8 or 12 - This is a large over flow dirt parking area right now - it is up where our building supplies, fencing, equipment and old RV's are stored and is more than a bit unsightly on the one side. The other sides are lovely hillside and wooded - it is visible to Site 6. Some might like it a lot for certain situations. It can support multiple motorhomes, but it is just a dirt spot with a good view looking up the mountain. DIRECTIONS: Located past Site 1, turn left at the first dirt road and pass Site 3 on your right, April - October pass the porta potty on your left and keep going up a slight hill and keep going past the tree (left or right) straight up into the open dirt area.

What a gem!
Rebecca met us at the gate upon arrival and gave a quick tour. This is a great location with superb ambiance and amenities— the outdoor shower is awesome!! Thank you!
Wow! wow! wow!
Wow! wow! wow!
We found just amazing camp online while we were on a camping/roadtrip weekend and thought we'd give it a try.
First of all the host Rebecca is absolutely so nice! She showed us where everything is at and got us all settled in.
Second of all the place is so awesome! You get a nice big private space to yourself and it has beautiful solar lights and each camp spot has different amenities, either BBQs or pop up tents, game section, etc, each spot is just really nice!
But hands down the coolest thing is the outdoor hot shower which is just beautiful and it has little the cutest little leaf vines all around it, it was pretty magical😍
If you're down around the Southern Oregon area and would like a nice private spot to camp with cool amenities, this is the place to go!!
Great meteor shower viewing!
We had a great stay, Rebecca was extremely attentive and helpful, and it was perfect for us. We got lucky and had clear skies and no wildfire smoke for our stay. Crystal clear skies to see shooting stars too! The heated outdoor shower was GREAT! During normal times, the fire pit situation would be pretty stellar too.
I highly recommend staying here.
Beautiful days, charming nights.
An absolute GEM of a place, we're already talking about coming back with friends and staying longer.
Both Rebecca and the campsite were lovely. Our site (#5) was enormous, and as we peeked around at the other nearby sites we found they were all equally charming and lovely with their own personality. Rebecca met us upon our arrival (definitely follow her written instructions and not GPS, as mentioned), and made sure we had water directly to the site and gave us the tour. The outdoor shower and hand washing areas were tidy and thoughtful, and there were plentiful outdoor games for recreation (we particularly enjoyed the horseshoes). The space would be perfect for a set of light-up bocce balls for a round or two, too!
Speaking of lights, this place absolutely comes alive at night, with colourful solar LED lights popping on all over the place as the sun goes down. It feels like a delightful little fairy woodland respite.
The sound of the gentle wind through the tall trees was calming, and the spot was perfect for some stargazing - we even caught a few early Perseid meteors while we were enjoying the warm night air.
Heartily recommend this spot tucked away in the forest, it was perfectly beautiful and I wish our trip had allowed us to stay for more than just a single night.
Safe & secure with helpful features
We stayed at the Hidden Forest Getaway in July 2021 while rafting Powerhouse rapid in the nearby town of Rogue River. We chose Rebecca's place because of the location and because it had the space and the features we needed for a last-minute trip.
It was rustic to be sure. But the place feels relaxed and playful. Also, Rebecca was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Compared to other "car camping" situations, one of the unique qualities of this campground is that it seemed very safe. The campground is located behind gates at the end of a long gravel drive off the main road outside of town.
Our spot (#1) was large and open yet shaded and felt apart (ideally distanced) from the rest of the campground. Rebecca met us on arrival, checked in with us each day, and was just lovely to visit with. Her personality showed through in the camp setup. Multicolored lights set throughout the campground provided a lovely ambiance and were also practical, leading our way to the (clean) portapotty, the hot shower, and the handwashing station. It's clear that Rebecca is detail-oriented. Our propane tanks were full and the camp provided everything from lawn games to a full set of tools for the fire pit. One thing to note is that the sprinklers run daily at site #1 at 3 PM. (I assume is an anti-fire measure. It's no big deal if you are in a RV. Just remember to put the ran flies on your tents.)
I would definitely stay here again if I were rafting this stretch of the upper Rogue, especially if we were to bring our dog and/or were traveling with RV-ers. We had three tents, an SUV, a pick-up, and a raft trailer. We had *plenty* of space to play corn hole and bocci. I'm not sure about the group size restrictions. But assuming that it's within Rebecca's rules, I believe that site #1 could accommodate a large group with 1-2 RVs and/or multiple cars with a couple of raft trailers. The gas-powered hot shower would definitely be a bonus for spring/fall rafting!
Perfect glamp site!
Rebecca’s property is beautiful! We arrived and settled into our spot. The 100 degree sun was beating down on our tent so we found some shade and played cards on the picnic table, used the on site hose to cool down.
Then we were hit with a thunder and lightning storm in which we had the shelter of the on-site RV to play cards in if it poured too hard. We slept very well and awoke to some deer walking through our campsite. Showered in the heated outdoor shower, cleaned up, and continued on our way to Crater Lake.
This is an amazing place to stop and decompress after spending all day on the road. We had the whole place to ourselves and really saw the potential of having a family gathering there.
Thanks Rebecca! You guys were awesome.
