Are you ready to get away to a beautiful vineyard? On our property you will get to camp with awesome views of vineyard, coastal range, and nearly no ambient light at night!

Our property is 10-15 minutes west of Carlton, Oregon, nestled in the foothills of the coastal range. We own 62 acres, 17 of which are planted as vineyard. On the property we have our house, a winery, and a tasting room.

Be prepared to drive up 2 miles of gravel road with a short but steep hill. You will likely need good skills backing up to get into position.

I have 2 spots for RVs and a variety of locations for tent camping.  Please let me know which you will do so that I can plan appropriately.  There are times when I can only fit 1 RV/Trailer, so please include that in your request.

We are on a working farm and our camping spots can be in the way of the tractor.  As a result, staying more than 1 night, especially Fri/Sat is tricky. Weeknights are far more flexible because our tasting room is closed and our parking area is available.  

Also note, as a working farm and we have crews here nearly everyday to work in the vineyard.  Please be respectful of the crew.

Update as we approach harvest: Fall is harvest time in the vineyard!  With this we will be limiting our camping, specifically RVs and trailers.  Normally we can fit 2, but I will be limiting it down to just 1 and only for 1 night at a time.  Please reach out before booking if you are camping in an RV or trailer.

Also, the birds become a problem for us in fall.  To help repel them from the vineyard, we use a bird noise maker.  It goes through a series of bird calls to scare them away from the grapes.  I mention it because it is loud in some spots around the property and it goes off regularly from dawn to dusk.  It is usually on for about 6 weeks before harvest.

About the winery: 

Chris James Cellars is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery that produces unique and interesting wines in Carlton, Oregon. The vineyard was planted in 2012, with additional blocks planted each year since. In 2015 we produced our first lots of Pinor Noir and Sauvignon Blanc and have since expanded our wine selection to offer hand-crafted lots of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Dolcetto, Lagrein and more. The tasting room is open Friday through Sunday, 12pm-5pm and by appointment.  Please visit our website to schedule a tasting (chrisjamescellars dot com).

Our second visit to the location, this time with our dog. The wine was great, and the dog loved roaming around the grounds (I felt comfortable letting him as the grounds are fenced). Will be coming back!

Glad to hear your second visit went well! Next time aim for summer or fall so you can see the vineyard when the vines are green :-)

My stay was amazing! Bethany was such a kind and generous host. The night sky was stunning, and the little spot where I had my tent set up gave me a fantastic view. I would definitely like to stay here again.

This is such a beautiful property with breathtaking views. AND their wine is wonderful. It was very easy to communicate with Bethany when we were running late and couldn't make it in time for their tasting hours. However, Bethany opened the tasting room for us so we could buy a couple bottles of wine for weekend adventure. We will be back!

What a beautiful place with endless views. Bethany was very accommodating when we reached out about our plans changing due to the heat wave. We really appreciated how simple and private our camp experience was here. We booked this place for the Persieds Meteor shower and it did not disappoint! We saw 53 shooting stars and had a great evening enjoying a bottle of their sparking rosé.
