Too many mosquitoes
Unfortunately we had to leave early due to the extreme mosquito attacks, beyond expectations. The seasonal meadow generates a massive mosquito feeding ground. They were simply too much and did NOT stop, unlike places where they subside during most of the day and have an evening surge. These were intense and never went away. Luckily we had a thermocell device but we ended up having to run it ANY time we left the tent and ran out of the consumables. The campsites had good space and felt private enough, and the setting was lovely with lots of birds and trails around the property. Awesome stars and night. Good swimming at the river nearby. Clean bathrooms, but there was no running water on the spigots by the campsites glad we brought our own. Also the sites where we stayed were not level. We gave up after multiple dozens of bites each including a good number of face bites. I don't want to have to DEET my face just to make/eat some dinner! The bite zapper was a big relief and got tons of use.

Serenity Cabin
Great stay!
Had a great stay even though it was short but sweet. We happened to be the only people camping and we got a free upgrade to the Shamballah cabin that was great. The kitchen space was great. There were pots and pans there to use, if you think you’re gunna cook a meal for yourself here bring extra utensils as there was only a spatula. Totally doable for us though! Cabin stayed pretty cool during the day since we least our windows open at night and shut them in the morning. Wish we stayed longer to explore more around the campsite. Brought our dogs and they had a blast!

Shamballa Cabin, eco-preserve
Shamballa Cabin at Eco Preserve
This was my first stay at the Eco-Preserve with friends. The location is rustic, peaceful, and relaxing. We rented the Shamballa cabin which has a funky sort of cool factor about it constructed with interesting details and using materials from the preserve. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a king bed. The kitchen is equipped with basic cookery tools, sink, and stove along with the gas barbeque outside. The kitchen shares the dining and living room space which also has a large sofa. There is a nice front deck as well as a back-deck accessible from the two bedrooms. The cabin is solar powered for basic lighting and use of their fans but there are a list of items not to plug-in so you should be aware. WIFI is available near the main office and cell service was spotty up to 30 min out. There is a bathroom and shower at the main office and two outhouses near the cabin. We would not suggest the outhouses as they were not maintained and were uncomfortable using them. We were warned about mosquitos...they attack with a vengeance so be prepared. There are multiple water sources to visit and hiking trails to follow. Our host recommended Oregon Creek Day Use area where we spent an entire day. The area feels untouched....take a plunge and swim to one of the boulders to absorb the sun. Such a beautiful space with clear water. Many thanks to Adam for being such a pleasant and such a pleasant and attentive host.

Geronimo Cabin, eco-preserve
The location was beautiful, the cabins were very rustic but we managed. Next time we will bring a off the road vehicle for a better experience. This place is great for an off the grid adventure. Adam was very nice and helpful.

Geronimo Cabin, eco-preserve
I enjoyed our stay, sheets and bed were fine, easy to park and unload the car. We were attending a storytelling festival in the neighborhood so we didn't spend much time on the grounds but I'd definitely return.

Serenity Cabin
Serenity weekend
Me and my daughter arrived for our weekend getaway. Same day booking! We arrived at midnight and found that two ladies had accidentally mistaken our cabin for theirs and were there. The host was amazing and so kind and helped us figure it out asap. Within 10 minutes I was on my way to my cabin to settle in. He was amazing with my daughter and all of us. “He introduced her to her new favorite drink, organic lemonade!” He had alternate options if needed but all was sorted! The cabin was so cute and cozy (I would recommend the fire burning oven inside the first night). But the temperature was decently controlled in there and everything we could have needed was there as well! The grounds were clean and serene. Serenity cabin was very secluded and peaceful. I would recommend an suv or bigger to get to this cabin. My fusion hardly made it, thankfully I had my explorer awd as well. Anytime I needed the bathroom or my daughter did, the main host cabin had flushable toilets most of the day available. Never had a wait. We even got a nice warm shower with no wait! Just be prepared for the mosquitos, they can be ruthless. I can’t wait to book another stay, couldn’t be more happier with the cabin, grounds and Adam. Also, follow his directions, not the maps!
