Come relax and enjoy the amazing energy of Four Directions Retreat, where we provide beautiful campsites, an amazing outdoor stage and a cute tiny cabin. We offer hiking, mountain biking and spend time with our adorable goats! We have a meadow and forested camping options.  Our beautiful property features a 40 year old Douglas Fir forest and a spacious meadow which is stunning in the spring with wild grasses and beautiful flowers. During the summer you can take a break from the heat or just relax amongst the huge ferns, Douglas Fir, Western Cedar and Alder trees. You can also take in some fresh air and forest views while hiking around the trails on the property.  In 2021, we built a great stage for entertainment (concerts and movie nights) and an outdoor kitchen for our Camp Chef using reclaimed materials. Along with the stage and Glamping Tent area, we built a Tiny Cabin, a sweet spot for the 12' custom Tipi and 10 traditional camp sites;.  You will also find various other amenities you can choose from to make your stay enjoyable.  Interested in getting some good ole' goat lovin' in during your stay - we have fun little fluffy goats who really enjoy showing off for our guests!  We also have some entertaining Muscovy Ducks that are sure to please.  If that isn't enough, we are located close to a lot of cool activities and areas of interest.  If you like disc golf, Trojan Park is only 8 minutes away.  You can jump in the water at a couple County Parks along the mighty Columbia River which are about 10 minutes away.  The picturesque Beaver Falls is a stunning 20 minute drive through the country followed by a short hike.  Then you can always take a kayak around Scappoose Bay which is a 30 minute drive from 4D.

4D - Tiny Cabin
Escape the city in four retreats
We loved the tiny cabin, it was so cozy and had everything we needed (pots/pans/cooking supplies and a warm bed. The land was kept well and the outhouses were tidy and non smelly. We absolutely fell in love with the goats and the sauna is a must. Kris also came by and made sure all was well.

Magical property
We absolutely loved this property! It is set up so nice! We had the Sunset spot and it was very cute and secluded. Very quiet here and just felt magical! The hosts are also very warm and welcoming and make great blackberry jam, thank you for allowing us to camp on your property, we will be back for sure!

Beautiful place immersed in nature
Absolutely beautiful place! The hosts are so kind and you can tell they love and care for their land. We needed a place to park our van on short notice and they were there for us. The site we stayed on #2 was huge and surrounded by beautiful trees. In the morning we walked down to the meadow and met the goats, chickens, and ducks. It was absolutely blissful.

Best Hipcamp!
I've been to several Hipcamps over the years and this has definitely been the best experience! This feels like an actual campground (not just someone's big back yard in the country). Kris and Nicole have also set up an amazing field full of fun games like badminton and cornhole. The campsites are very private and nestled in a typical PNW forest. My one warning with this Hipcamp is some of the neighbors have dogs that bark at night. They're still pretty far away, but they may wake you up a few times at night. Otherwise, it was very secluded and met all of our camping expectations.

We had a lovely evening at Four Directions. Kris was welcoming and friendly and offered us a better campsite than what we had booked because of a cancellation. We were a little bummed that we didn't have access to the outdoor kitchen/cook for dinner because of a private event and that there wasn't a movie playing that evening, as we had pumped ourselves (and our kid) up on both plans for the evening. But the positives definitely outweighed those small bummers. Campsite was large and private with a very nice picnic table, the biffy was clean and close by and lawn games/dragon boat/goats made for great entertainment.

A perfect retreat!
I don't even know where to start with how wonderful our experience was at 4D. From the campsites, to the whole property, to chef Jules, everything was amazing! We had a large group out for one night and Kris was so accommodating in all pre-trip communications and accommodating our groups needs. 4D created a safe space for our group to relax and bond together. The campsites, bathroom, and tiny cabin were all clean and well maintained. Chef Jules kept our bellies full with the most delicious food! We hope to come back next year! Thanks so much!

Four directions is a perfect get-away spot. They have gone above and beyond to accommodate campers and glampers alike. They are very mindful in placement, cleanliness and respect of spaces.

This was our second visit at Four Directions, and we love it! Hosts are great, space is comfortable and much more private than most organized campgrounds, and the're still making improvements. Bathrooms were upgraded since our last visit, and they built a sauna!

Great campsite for groups
Beautiful campsite with places to explore! The kids loved running around in the meadow and watching the farm animals. The moms loved time to themselves in the sauna 😉 The group campsite was huge and made a great meeting/eating place for the families that we camped with. I met one of the camp hosts, who was very friendly.

There's something for everyone!
Nicole and Kris's Four Directions Campground provided the perfect, (fairly last minute) serene, getaway. I didn't need a kitchen, nice outhouses (seriously, they are the nicest ones I've ever seen), adorable goats, chickens, and roosters, a stage with Saturday night movies, fresh eggs and jam available for purchase, or an array of lawn games to choose from but all of these well thought out ideas made us void of any camping lulls. We would definitely return and we're so grateful that Nicole and Kris continue to share their amazing property with campers.

We had an amazing stay! Great place for all ages. Adults enjoyed the lawn games in the meadow and the amazing sauna (don't miss it!) and the kids loved the farm animals and all of the space in the meadow to play. Campgrounds and pit houses were both immaculate. Hostesses were so kind and personable.

Great experience
Beautiful site, great hosts, clean, easy to find but felt private. We will definitely return! Everything we needed in the "glamping tent", lovely trails through forest with ferns, a variety of trees, wood sorrel, wide grassy paths or some less "tended" but easily passable. Not a single disappointment, other campers also respectful. Kris and Nicole have done a fantastic job creating Four Directions Retreat

Perfect Weekend Getaway!
We were happy to find this idyllic hip camping spot! Kris was a wonderful and friendly host with a lovely piece of property to relax and have fun at while camping. It was perfect place for kiddos and grownups to spend the weekend. We loved the games and the animals (❤️ Annie the goat) and will definitely be back.

Four Directions is very charming. We stayed in Alder, Fir and the Shady Grove group site. The sites were we'll spaced out. Alder and Fir had enough room for one big tent and Shady Grove had room for 2 tents (it's a big site, but pretty lumpy so hard to find more flat spots - but plenty of room to make it our group's kitchen and hang out site. The Tiny cabin near our sites was reserved, but no one showed - it is adorable and the campsites attached to it are lovely. The meadow was a fun place for the kids to run around a d they enjoyed the movie on Saturday night.

Camping at Wild Cherry Campsite
We loved tent camping on this beautiful property! We met Kris shortly after we arrived and she was great! We stayed in the Wild Cherry campsite and it was perfect for the two of us and our little dog. It was very private and beautifully tucked away under the trees. We were a short walk from the compost toilet which was always very tidy and stocked. There was a movie playing Saturday night, but we loved the campsite so much we decided to just relax around our little propane fire pit and enjoy the trees. We would recommend this site to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!

This is a Treasure
What a special place. A small, private camping experience on a beautiful property created, loved and cared for by Nicole and Kris. All spaces are very secluded, private, beautiful and quiet. All directions and signage were clear and accurate. The hiking trail was a real bonus - and we discovered the blackberry patch! I almost want to keep the “Tiny Cabin” a secret because it’s so perfect.

Loved it!!
My family had such an amazing time camping out here. It was beautiful and felt like we were alone in the woods at our site sometimes. We took a quick trip to play in the river and do a hike. We were able to have a coal only fire - fire ban - and stay in our own little oasis bubble. We took the kids over to the main area to play and they had a blast. It was hard to tear them away to go swimming. We can’t wait to come back and hope to bring more people with us next time. The only downside for us, being used to state camp grounds, we didn’t realize the water wasn’t near the campsite like they are at those. We made it work though and will plan for it next time.

Our family of 3 enjoyed our 2-night stay at Four Directions . The sites were nicely shaded (we ended up staying in the Alder site) and well kept. Our 4-year-old especially enjoyed the lawn games and animal encounters. We were alone in our "neighborhood" of sites one night and felt safe on the property. We look forward to our next stay here!
