We are offering up a few areas on our property for clean, friendly, quiet campers that want to get out of the city and enjoy some peace and quiet. We are located in Banks, Oregon. We are approximately 45 minutes west of downtown Portland. Our camping area is about 5 acres and offers something for everyone. If you have a large RV and need a safe and quiet spot to stay for the night, we got you. We have a large fire pit, Adirondak chairs, a large picnic table, and a swing set for the kids. Badminton and cornhole available on request. Family get-togethers or birthday parties are welcome! We are located just 1.5 miles from The Banks-Vernonia Trail. Bike campers are welcome! Feel free to bring along your 4-legged friends as well. We do not have a fence, so if you do not trust your dog of a leash, please keep them tied up. We have a lot of deer that pass through and untrained dogs love chasing them. Banks has a few restaurants to choose from: Subway, Dairy Queen, Main Street Pizza, Mary's Mexican Food, Hop-Cycle Brewing to name a few. There is also a Supermarket in town just in case you forgot your S'mores supplies or Spirits. We are about 20 minutes away from McMenamins Grand Lodge, in Forest Grove, which hosts some great live concerts during the summer. We have a few fishing spots within about 30 minutes of the property. Hagg lake, Horning's Hideout, Dorman's Pond and the Wilson River are all popular spots. We have clean well water and 50A electrical hookups. We do not offer dumping of black water, but you can empty your tank at the Elks club in Forest Grove (25-minute drive) for free or Camping World over in Hillsboro. I don't mind if you drain your gray water on the property as long as you use a longer hose to keep it away from the immediate camping area. The parking area for RV's is fairly level and easy to get in and out of. During the late summer we have 5 producing apple trees, 2 plum trees, and a lot of blackberries. Feel free to pick what you would like. Currently, we do not have any public bathroom facilities available for campers, so please plan accordingly. There is a public bathroom at the "Manning Trailhead" about 1.5 miles away. Please feel free to ask me any questions, we are willing to make accommodations for special situations/events if possible!We would like to share our beautiful property just outside of Banks, OR. You will have access to a clean and quiet campsite surrounded by 40 year old Douglas Fir trees. Amenities include fresh well water (hose bib), full electrical hookups (110 and 220 50-amp), a large picnic table, 2 firepits, swing set for the kids, cornhole boards, badminton and chairs around the firepit. We can accommodate almost any size camper or RV. There is also plenty of room if you want the kids to sleep in a tent.  We can accommodate get-togethers or events with prior approval.  We are located about 1.5 miles from great biking/walking on the popular Banks-Vernonia Trail. ~50 minutes to seaside. ~30 minutes to Hagg Lake. ~ 20 minutes to McMenamins Grand Lodge (music Venue). Thanks for looking!

I have enjoyed this campsite and the wonderful family that offers it immensely! It is a quiet, and beautiful place to return to after work or play. It is located in a perfect location to go explore Portland and the surrounding communities, or go the opposite direction to the beaches, and all that the coast has to offer.

Lovely spot for dog friendly fun
What a fun weekend! Talon and family were so thoughtful and welcoming. Stanley the labradoodle got along well with our golden retriever, they tired each other out. Plenty of space to spread out and helpful amenities to make hooking up easier. We appreciated the hospitality and gorgeous property. Close by and delightful, we hope to be back soon!
