Camp Catching is located on Catching Slough a beautiful tidal water way located in the Coos Sumner area near Coos Bay. Home lands to the Coos and Coquille tribes.

Camp catching is a part of Blue Barns Farms, a 6 acres homestead located on Old Wagon Rd. We grow a variety of vegetables, fruit trees, and flowers for home use and occasional road side sales. We also grow a number of herbs and keep chickens. In the past we have raised goats, pigs, chickens and turkeys.

This area is considered a “Banana Belt” as during the summer it is often 15 degrees warmer than “in town” and outside of the fog bank that is often seen daily closer to the ocean. It is a great place to set up camp while exploring other areas of our beautiful community. The Oregon Bay Area ( Coos County) is a True Hidden Gem. You can go from mountain to sea; exploring waterfalls to playing at the beach all in one day.

We have 3 camping areas around our little blue barn and surrounding area. Each camp spot has a solo fire pit, bundle of firewood and picnic table (please note: fires will be permitted based on fire risk.) All 5 camping spots have access to Catching Slough for paddle boarding and kayaking; I have been known to even swim on a hot day. We have two paddle boards and a child kayak (less than 130 lbs) available for camper use. We also have life jackets available.

Catching slough is influenced by the tides and contains brackish waters- both add additional magic to this area. This means twice a day the slough empties traveling to the ocean and fills up again. High tide is a great time for paddle boarding and kayaking; low tide is wonderful for watching birds and other animals.

Anytime is actually great for bird watching! We have a number of different species of birds that rest here while migrating- the opportunity to see them all depends on the time of year that you visit. You can also watch fish jump in the bend of the slough. Other oddities that we have seen since living here over the last 7 years- swimming deer and even a seal(only once)! Everyone who comes to visit finds the slough mesmerizing and beautiful!

For facilities we have an outdoor shower and Porter potties that are emptied regularly and cleaned daily. We have a hot tub on our personal deck- campers may be able to access this- just ask upon arrival.

Campers will have access to our two gardens and fruit trees- while in season. Our little Blue Barn is a communal space offering a refrigerator, microwave, hot plate, kettle, tea house and camp store. Their is also a barbecue located outside the barn for camps use. We have a community board in the barn with local activities and for campers to share their offerings while traveling.

What a sweet spot! Highlights include: incredibly clear and friendly communication with host, a beautiful slough view, and the best outdoor shower ever. It’s not a spot for much camping privacy although our neighbors were quiet and thoughtful, so it all worked out! This place has very sweet vibes.

This place is awesome! Friendly hosts who were knowledgeable in what’s fun to do in the area along with crabbing and clamming info. The camp was peaceful and the communal area sets this place apart from others. I rate this place 5/5 stars!

The camp site was beautiful. They had the cutest barn decorated and set up as a hangout for campers with tea, water, games, microwave, comfortable seating and a fridge. The family was super nice. There were other campers but they were quiet. The owners also gave us free access to paddle boards to go out on their lake. It was a great stay and we are definitely going back.
