GeerCrest Farm occupies Kalapuya land, settled by the Geer family in 1847, and is still owned and stewarded by the family. The house Ralph and Mary Geer built in 1851 stands and is one of the oldest in Oregon to remain in the same family. GeerCrest Farm and Historical Society manages the front portion of the land and has provided farm-life experiences for all ages since 2007, along with day and overnight experiences for individuals and families. Along with its history, the valley view, small creek and pond, farm animal, and diverse wildlife at GeerCrest is a truly unique experience. On the 20 acre property, we offer two tent camp sites, a tree house, as well as two woodland lodgings. Our peaceful, small farm offers a reflective immersion in nature and history among the occasional chatter of chickens and baaas of sheep. The scenery from all corners of the farm is incredible - a favorite is the westward view of the valley pasture at sunset -- called "Homer's View" after famous political cartoonist and Geer descendant, Homer Davenport. No matter which camping site you choose, the sounds of the creek, pond frogs, or conversing owls are sure to lull you to sleep. Please say hello to our flock of chickens, barn cats (they may say hello first) and small but mighty herd of sheep. Explore the Heritage Grove of historic trees, the Memorial apple orchard and pear glade with varieties cerca 1840s, indulge your senses in our medicinal herb garden, ponder the historic 1854 black cottonwood tree and chat with our farm family while they water the veggie gardens, if you so wish! Your experience will certainly be unique to the season. GeerCrest Farm is truly an off-the-beaten-path gem.

WoodBundle Bunkhouse
Very nice location. Close to Silverton and Silver Falls State park. Comfortable and mostly private; two other cabins are close by. Wooded setting to enjoy from the front deck. Clean room.

We’ll be back! The
I loved our bunkhouse! It was perfect mix of outdoor while still staying warm and dry. Outhouse was a step away from the bunk house and very clean and had a light. Little heater kept the cabin warm. We loved going to visit the sheep.

Oak Hill Cabin
Oak Hill cabin is a lovely, peaceful and secluded retreat a mere 30 minutes from Salem. It was comfortable and cozy. I will definitely recommend this spot to other campers!
