GeerCrest Farm occupies Kalapuya land, settled by the Geer family in 1847, and is still owned and stewarded by the family. The house Ralph and Mary Geer built in 1851 stands and is one of the oldest in Oregon to remain in the same family. GeerCrest Farm and Historical Society manages the front portion of the land and has provided farm-life experiences for all ages since 2007, along with day and overnight experiences for individuals and families. Along with its history, the valley view, small creek and pond, farm animal, and diverse wildlife at GeerCrest is a truly unique experience. On the 20 acre property, we offer two tent camp sites, a tree house, as well as two woodland lodgings. Our peaceful, small farm offers a reflective immersion in nature and history among the occasional chatter of chickens and baaas of sheep. The scenery from all corners of the farm is incredible - a favorite is the westward view of the valley pasture at sunset -- called "Homer's View" after famous political cartoonist and Geer descendant, Homer Davenport. No matter which camping site you choose, the sounds of the creek, pond frogs, or conversing owls are sure to lull you to sleep. Please say hello to our flock of chickens, barn cats (they may say hello first) and small but mighty herd of sheep. Explore the Heritage Grove of historic trees, the Memorial apple orchard and pear glade with varieties cerca 1840s, indulge your senses in our medicinal herb garden, ponder the historic 1854 black cottonwood tree and chat with our farm family while they water the veggie gardens, if you so wish! Your experience will certainly be unique to the season. GeerCrest Farm is truly an off-the-beaten-path gem.

Tree House in the Valley
What a special spot. Loved sleeping in the treehouse and the fantastic rope swing. The sheep are no joke, but a quick hip check sends them on their way. Really great spot. Pack well, as you will be carting your items down a hill.

Quiet and peaceful, we enjoyed wandering this orchard farm and learning of it's historical background. Will surely camp there again should we be in the area.

WoodBundle Bunkhouse in Farm Forest
Overall we had a nice stay. The cabin was clean with good arrangements like curtains, lights, fan, private toilet and beds and extra blankets(yes we needed it badly). However the outside the cabin was not a flat usable area where our kid could play or run around. So we were limited to just cabin. The host were very nice and let us use the area by our car parking so we enjoyed our morning breakfast there where our kid was able to play and also was visited by the host family's dog and cat. The host was very responsive on messages. The walk was difficult upto cabin and was not properly lighted or well laid out clean, but we are also very new to camping in wilderness so it might be just us. Overall we had a comfortable stay. We just wanted a low key camping experience before summer ends and it worked out for us.

Understory Cabin in Farm Forest
Great Experience !!
My husband and I loved our stay at Geercrest! The cabin was perfect for us, it was very quiet and we had a fun time hanging out with the sheep! It was a great mini retreat and reset and I would totally recommend it! The hosts were very responsive to our needs and Silver Falls is so close.
