In 1948 a wildfire came thru what then was a mixed forest of spars old growth conifers, evergreen and deciduous broadleaf trees burning intensely enough to render the entire area to primarily grassland. Today it is quickly returning to primarily mixed forest, recovering the ability to hold water at cooler temperatures as it once did. Nestled on the south slope of Dickinson Mountain it offers plenty of sunshine yet some of the best cool freshwater to be found anywhere. Although much of this paradise is considerably steep there are ample cow and goat trails to make exploring extremely enjoyable. Bachelor Creek which runs thru approximately 1/2 mi of the Southeast portion is home to beaver, cutthroat, western pond turtles, great blue heron, and many other wildlife.  There is a pair of resident redtail hawks, wild turkeys, deer, bobcat, coyote, cougar, mink, flying squirrel, silver grey squirrel, pine squirrel, owls (sawhete, screach, Pigmy, barred, and great horned), and many others. There are also many swimming holes on Bachelor Creek and a tributary we call Dancing creek, although they are all somewhat small the water is nice and refreshing for a quick dip on a warm day. This is a working farm raising cattle, goats, and chickens. There is a small farm (squirrel) dog named Cocoa and a livestock guardian dog named Yeti. They are both extremely friendly and Yeti takes it upon herself to guard everyone on the farm from any predators. Feel free to give her a pat on the head or little pet but she has a job to do and after meet and greet she needs to move on. On that note please don't feed any of the animals as they could become a real nuisance. If you are going to be leaving your camp for a hike or swim etc. please secure any food items to avoid a potential disaster.

Stay here if you’re looking for a place to kick up your heels for a few days. There’s room to roam and it’s quiet. Ron is a great host be sure to tell him if you are ⛺️ or in a rig.

The best place to camp, hands down. Ron is the best host. He opens his land up sharing his tranquility with those of us that are lucky enough to stop by for a stay. From the beautiful babbling brook to the perfect tent spot that fits our 12 person tent comfortably to even what my son calls the "Shrek" outhouse, it's all so wonderful! Genuinely my family's absolute favorite spot to camp.

We loved staying at Ron’s campsite! He greeted us shortly after we arrived and was friendly and helpful. We chose camp 2 and were very happy with it. The spot was secluded and peaceful, especially with the sounds of the creek. Bathroom was clean and easy to find. Overall a very beautiful place!

Family Favorite!
This will be our third visit to Dancing Creek Farms. It’s always peaceful and welcoming and we look forward to the dogs coming to greet us. When we pulled in the smell of mint filled the air. “Pennyroyal.” Ron explained, it’s in the mint family. It rained this time but Ron offered a cabin/camper he crafted with a little stove that kept us toasty and dry. In the morning a little herd of cattle with their calves stood outside the door puzzled staring at my vehicle and wondering what it was doing there. This place is like a story from a book and Ron is a character from its pages. Hands down our favorite stop. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this cool property.

Peaceful, safe, and rejouvinating
So peacefull! Dancing Creek Farm is on beautiful land that is secluded and well cared for. This is the perfect stay for me, just off the I5 on my now frequent trips between humboldt and seattle. I'll certainly be requesting more camps down the road :-) and recommending it to any traveler who needs a safe, peaceful stay in gorgeous southern oregon!

Beautiful, private setting
We had just a short 1 night stay with our 5 kids and had the place to ourselves and it was magical! Beautiful setting, quiet and Ron was so accommodating. Lots of area to explore and the kids would have liked to stay for the week. Highly recommend!
