The Idaho Pioneer Farm

3 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Nampa, ID
I was raised outside of city limits in Nampa, Idaho, and I wanted to raise my kids in the same "country environment." I was blessed to buy my 10-acre farm in early 2013, and my three kids and I are slowly transforming it into a small, sustainable farm with chickens and veggies at the moment. That takes up a relatively small footprint, and the rest of my land is native sagebrush and grassland. It's so beautiful and peaceful, and I hope you enjoy it and the incredible views of the valley!

Garden Valley River Access Campsite

1 site · RV, Tent2 acres · Crouch, ID
The address to the house next door is 519 MiddleFork Rd, Garden Valley, ID 83622. That will get you to the property. The property is right after 519 it is a large open lot that leads down to the river. There is a black military vehicle parked on the very end close to the house. So there are two sections 1st is a flat section where you have plenty of room to set up tents and RVs. It is right off the road, and any car can get to the site with ease. The 2nd section is more wooded and has access to the river. You are welcome to tent camp here it is just getting an RV down there and out can be a challenge I don't recommend it. Also, the bridge across the river is the neighbors and so is the property across the river. There are roughly 4 campsites on the property but can camp where you want really. Large flat spot above the river that has access to the water. Half of the property is a flat spot for RV's and tents the 2nd half is more green, woody and has access to the river. There is a deeper spot in the river that is 3-4 feet deep and is perfect to lounge in during the hot parts of the summer. Please pack out what you pack in and keep the place nice for the next camper. Thank you and enjoy.

CTC Farms

2 sites · Lodging104 acres · Nyssa, OR
Years ago when we were living "in town", we wished to find a piece of farmground where we would be able to build a home and life. Luckily, we heard this property was coming on the market and we were able to work with the owners on purchasing before listing. The previous family will always hold a special place in our hearts - they truly worked with us to allow the transaction to happen. Since then, we have built our home and continue to chip away at projects to really make the place our own. We raise forage crops - corn, wheat, and alfalfa on a rotating basis, as well as a garden, flowers, pumpkins, pets, and kids! We hope you enjoy your visit! Learn more about this land: Welcome to our farm and home! We are located 35 miles from I-84, 59 miles from Boise, Idaho, 14 miles from Nyssa, Oregon and 5 miles from Adrian, Oregon. Nestled on a small farm, we are just minutes from the Owyhee River where many find enjoyment fly fishing for football-sized brown trout, rainbows, and more. With 360-degree views from the property, we invite you to set up camp and enjoy. You can have your boat at the dock of the Owyhee Reservoir in 25 minutes - or simply take a drive to enjoy the views, paddleboard, fish, swim, hike, hunt, off-road, and more. You'll find a local hot spring along the way to the Reservoir. Local restaurants and grocery options are as close as 20 minutes, and one burger joint even delivers! The sunrise over the valley and sunset over Mitchell Butte and the Owyhee Mountains just cannot be beat. Occasional wind storms crop up, so be prepared for that! Gentle pets are welcome. A round pen for horses/mules *may* be available for larger four-legged friends. Most do get cell phone service, and if you need anything - we are happy to help!
