Camp is a Star Host
Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
One of rural Oregon's hidden gems, Camp Colton is a retreat and event center tucked away on 85 acres of forest about an hour Southeast of Portland. Enjoy hiking our trails, walking our creeks and swimming or canoeing in our creek-fed pond. This is a truly special setting to unplug and relax. Our listings offer something for everyone, including tent camping, RV sites, a tiny house, forest yurt and a cottage that sleeps up to six! All of our listings are pet friendly and allow campfires (burn ban permitting). Amenities for each listing vary from bare-bones to full kitchen and bath, so be sure to read each description carefully and choose according to your needs. ****PLEASE NOTE: IN ADDITION TO OUR ACCOMMODATIONS, WE ARE A WEDDING AND EVENT VENUE, SO YOU MAY HEAR MUSIC AND JOYFUL VOICES ACROSS THE CREEK LATE INTO THE EVENING DURING OUR PEAK SEASON (ROUGHLY MAY 1 - OCTOBER 31). If you prefer only to stay when there is no event on our large site, please inquire before requesting to book. Our guests love staying with us! Check out these comments from past guests: "This place was absolutely amazing! We cannot wait to come back!" "The host thought of everything - every little touch and comfort to make it feel so cozy and glamping-perfect." "The fire pit and chairs outside were excellent, and the stove inside kept it so cozy and warm in there. Plenty of firewood, lighter, blankets, water & lights - we wanted for nothing!" "It felt very remote and we could hear the water all night, but it’s actually not remote and so we appreciated that the camp was gated at night." "Such a great place!! We are going to recommend it to all our friends and can’t wait to get back. Thanks to Neal for being an excellent host when we arrived!!"

South RV Site
We’re pretty sure that fairies & elves inhabit this magical place. Everywhere you walk, there’s an incredible piece of original metal art, a creek, a waterfall, a bridge, a bench, a meadow, etc. We absolutely fell in love with Camp Colton. Other than one other couple, we had the place to ourselves. Which we loved. The RV sites are definitely the least sexy sites of this place, as there is significant road noise. However, we would go back again. We loved having a campfire, the bathhouse was divine, and we could not have had a better experience in this hidden gem. We appreciated that wood for campfires is included. We definitely want to come back when the sugar shack is in full production. My favorite part was looking at the poetry on the wall. Any place that displays Mary Oliver poetry is my kind of place. It’s tempting, not to leave a good review so that we can keep this place secret, but all the work that the team has put into refurbishing this camp and artist’s/poet’s/nature lover’s dream, deserves to be recognized. We can see why people get married here. We can also see why people return again and again.

"Chanterelle" Cozy Forest Yurt
Relaxing getaway with amenities
This was the perfect little getaway for our small family (+ dog). The yurt is cozy and nicely decorated and outfitted. Bedding, towels, an electric space-heater and wood-burning stove/heater, and outlets for your devices (but you'll want to turn them off and focus on the natural beauty). We loved hearing the nearby creek and the happy frogs as we drifted off to sleep in comfort. The kids enjoyed other amenities on the property: a large tree swing, horseshoes, lawn bowling, and the network of trails. Our camp host met us at the property entrance and showed us to the campsite and around the yurt. Firewood and kindling were ready to go, and we enjoyed roasting s'mores in the fire pit outside the yurt. The neighboring bathhouse was clean and spacious.

This was such a treat! With only one night to get out of the city, it was perfect to just show up and enjoy without worries and gear. Every single aspect was clean and well maintained. Thank you for the wonderful getaway!

A stunning nature retreat!
We had an amazing time at Camp Colton! We came to the spring equinox dinner and stayed in a yurt for our first time away from our baby girl! It was so restful and beautiful. The natural environment is stunning and the care that the Camp Colton team takes of this land and each other is deeply felt. The waters that run through the place are stunning and we could hear the water from our bed which made for such deep sleep! We loved it here and are looking forward to coming back with our wider family and solo.

Quick weekend stay for a kids’ bday and it was perfect. We will come back for sure. Lots of beautiful forest trails and river views. The yurt was clean and cozy and the bathrooms were really clean too. It was nice that fire wood was provided :)
