Welcome to Parker Learning Gardens! We are a nonprofit educational 33-acre farm located 10 miles north of Eugene, Oregon right between the small towns of Coburg and Harrisburg. Our campsites are located at our 3 acre Bamboo Forest, with covered platforms located alongside and underneath the canopy of our whimsical corridor of huge Linden Trees. There are over 40 varieties of bamboo in our densely-packed 35-year-old Bamboo Forest. You are welcome to explore this unique forest by navigating through our meandering trail system. Elsewhere on the farm we have over 500 fruit trees, many farm animals, and 12 demonstration gardens. We offer seasonal educational programming from Spring-Fall, with various community classes, workshops and field trips for schools. The mission of Parker Learning Gardens involves immersing people of all ages in nature while demonstrating how to: grow food organically, tend to the land from an ecological perspective, incorporate animals in a regenerative way, and be conscious environmental stewards. If you are interested, there may be an option for a private educational tour for an additional fee (dependent on timing and availability). Otherwise, your stay will be private with open access to the trail system of our Bamboo Forest and huge Linden Tree Grove (approximately 5 acres of of beautiful wondering space to explore and unwind). We are about 5 miles from the I-5 exit in Coburg. The farm is located in the old floodplain of the Willamette River, with close access to places to swim just a short car drive away. There are several fun hikes within 30 minutes of here in all directions. Many family and youth activities/opportunities nearby (check the Eugene weekly event calendar).

i had a peaceful night at this site! the covered table/sink area is nice, i love a compost bin and compost toilet. plenty of firewood at the site, and cell service was good. i was just stopping through on my drive from socal to seattle, so i didn't have much time to explore the trails but there are beautiful plants growing all around. there is road noise and distant trains but i didn't mind, there were plenty of birds chirping too.

Transport to a Zenful Paradise
The Bamboo Forest Campsite is such an unexpected little piece of paradise in the middle of farm country. I was so pleasantly surprised with how much I felt like I was transported into another place coming into a bamboo forest filled with wonderful sturdy structures, amenities galore with an outhouse, fresh water sink, and two firepits areas with an ample amount of firewood provided. I can't wait to see what will be done with the Tiny homes! Also, Nate does offer a farm tour for a small fee if you're interested in seeing more of the farm!

This was a nice spot! We reserved both of the platforms for our party for one night before we attended the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene. It worked out great. We enjoyed the firepits and kitchen area, wandered around in the bamboo a bit, and even went for a run out on the nearby roads. The place was pretty quiet--you could hear trains at night, but they weren't too loud. Solid place to stop over.

Our stay was wonderful! The location was great and amenities that were offered for a more primitive campsite was perfect. We will definitely come back next time we are in the area.
