Please note: Vehicles and campers are not able to be in the campground area at this time to keep it peaceful and more enjoyable for all hip campers. 

These 3 sites are a “pick a spot that you like and pitch your own tent” set up.  These undesignated sites are located in the lower prairie and have no fire rings or picnic tables  however you are welcome to enjoy the community fire ring near the large lower pond, just bring your own wood or purchase onsite.  These 3 sites are walk in and pack your own stuff, truly for the minimalist who prefers to hand pick your spot.

Located at around 1400 foot in elevation, nestled in the Molalla foothills is a rural area called Dickie Prairie. Come to our mountain top to escape all the noise and distractions of every day life. Feel your stress melt away while looking for frogs in the pond, deer in the forest and listening to the birds sing. Each camp site has its own picnic table and fire pit ring. Just a 5 minute drive from the Molalla River Corridor you can enjoy many miles of hiking trails, horse trails and fishing. Should you opt for a tour- Our 50 acre farm is home to heritage grass fed Scottish Highland Cattle, grass fed Dorset Horn Sheep and natural fermented grain finished Kunekune Pigs. We also raise layer chickens, eggs and pasture grown Red Ranger broiler chickens.  Please note that holiday weekends are charged a premium rate. We do not allow fishing in our pond but the river is a quick drive and you can definitely fish there!

A beautiful retreat with friendly hosts! We stayed in #3 and while there were other campers around, it still felt pretty private. Found some tasty blackberries and enjoyed watching the sunset from the hill.

Great stay at the campsite with my young boys. Lovely place. Only problem was the dogs barking for several hours non-stop throughout each night we stayed

My friends and I were after a nice, quiet (and ideally beautiful) place to reconnect after being separated since the beginning of the pandemic. Bronco Farms delivered in spades. We are SO GLAD we booked here. The hosts were incredibly lovely, helpful and fun to chat with. Very cool family!

Great place to spend the weekend. The river nearby has fairly warm water, and the sunsets are beautiful. Would definitely think about coming back.

I would echo the previous reviews. These are super hosts. To coordinate your arrival and haul all your gear down to the site was a great service. The campsite is amazing and I loved the fact that there were no cars driving by your tent. The views from the top of the hill are stunning as well. The farm tour would be great for anyone, but if you have kids this is a must ($20 per family). My kids loved getting up close to all the animals, which seemed very used to kids and were very calm. One of the dogs just gave birth a month ago so they also got to cuddle with new puppies. A great experience overall and we will be back!

Amora was such a great communicator and made the loading in and out process such a breeze. The trip from the parking area to the campsite is fairly steep, so definitely take her up on the offer to shuttle you and your camp gear down to the site. My friends and I were very grateful for the help and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We hiked up the hill to enjoy the sunset each night and we were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the bullfrogs in the pond.
