Coming in at roughly 30 acres, Cold Springs Farm, established in 1915, sits nestled in its own little valley. A canyon running the north of the property in known for its wildlife population including bear, deer and elk. Our farms sits on an elk migration trail and, in April and October, we often see herds of 30 or more. The farm's namesake spring feeds a small pond that has crawdads, ducks and Blue Heron; of course, there are also curious raccoons about. We eventually intend to stock the pond with Rainbow Trout. Although we are a short 30-minutes to Portland, our private farm is free from unwanted lights and traffic, when the skies are clear starwatchers have many vantage points from which they can indulge their hobby! Our wide-open field is great for kite flying or frisbee; it's also a great place to practice your drone piloting skills. We also have paths in the tree line that you can hike and birdwatch or mountain bike. In August, you have access to pick as many blackberries as you want and trust me they delicious. Cold Springs Farm is also a sanctuary. Our current residents include our KuneKune oinkers; Chris P Bacon, Wilber, Pigit, Hamish McBiscuit and our newest member Rowdy. The resident goats include; Dolly, Freddy McNubbins, Princess Daisy Mae, Mikey, Mildred (Milly), Marvin the bottle baby, Dafne, Booger, Cyranose "Nose" and Delilah the resident therapy goat. Rounding out the bunch are our farm dogs, Oscar Braveheart, Hoppin' Howie and Lulubear. You can see their adventures on Instagram @worst.farmer.ever We look forward to welcoming to our Columbia River Gorge farm and introducing you to what our beautiful area has to offer. We are just minutes from many of the gorge waterfall hikes including the historic Multnomah falls and Vista House sitting on Crown Point. One Oregon's favorite summer concert venue, McMenamins Edgefield, is a short 10 miles. Concerts, wine tasting, and hiking within a short distance of the campsite, plus goat and pigs cuddles. It's memories in the making.

Cute, rustic parking spot
Overall, lovely spot. The property is remote, and the parking spot is well away from the hosts’ living quarters so it felt quite private. There isn’t direct water connection but the hosts were generous enough to let us walk up to the house to fill buckets with a hose. The animals were a major hit, of course: they’re all adorable and friendly and we enjoyed feeding them snacks. The hosts are also very friendly. We enjoyed some conversations in the evenings together. A few challenges: don’t try to arrive after dark. There’s very little service up there and the main road is very steep, windy, and narrow. We missed our turn and couldn’t turn around because we were trapped between two blind curves. Thankfully, a neighbor let us use their driveway to 3-point turn. The driveway to the property is also quite steep and narrow and unpaved. If you have a rig with low clearance and/or RWD, this spot might be hard to access. We have a 36’ skoolie and it was quite an adventure getting to the parking spot. Also of note: while the trees block most of the city lights and the sky is nice and dark, it is right in the flight path to and from PDX, so it may not be as quiet as you would expect.

John and Mikal were super welcoming and the animals are a cherry on top. The camping spot for our tent was private with no gorge noise of highway or trains. We fell asleep to delightful crickets and frogs under a starry sky. Great basecamp to explore the area and will definitely stay again next time we're in the area!

Price too high for no amenities
The price is a bit too high for a place with no amenities. Otherwise no complaints
