Located 9 miles east of Bend our 40 acre ranch is full of open fields and juniper forest. We have cows, chickens, geese and ducks that live on the ranch and you will most likely see them roaming around the fields. The nights are quiet with the exception of frogs and crickets and offer a full night sky without light pollution.

Grass!!!
Mackenzie and family are very respectful and flexible. Every request was provided. After being in many campgrounds, the farm was refreshing. Grass all around us, providing a clean and welcoming feel. We have a travel trailer. They provided a flat grassy area for parking, a beautiful table, chairs and umbrella, water, electricity and as much WiFi (1-2 bars) as they could. ATT reception is very limited. Wide open view, far enough from the owners to provide privacy & quiet. The cows greeted us with interest. We had to keep our dog tied up as she is a herder and would have loved to play with those cows. Close to a small market which has propane and other provisions. Great place.

Great spot
Great spot. Exactly what I was looking for, a safe spot to leave camping gear and telescope gear while exploring the area during the day. Water and a porta potty available for use and trash cans, all the essentials for tent camping. Would definitely stay again!

A great peaceful and shady spot! Mackenzie was beyond gracious as a host. This spot worked wonderful for us as we were attending a wedding 15 minutes away at Brasada Ranch.

Perfect for stargazing!
This was such a cute spot! The soft grass was a perfect place to throw down a tent and I loved being on a working farm with lots of animals around. The night sky was beautiful—so many stars!

Camping on Mackenzie's land was peaceful and beautiful. All of our communication with Mackenzie was clear and prompt, the pot-potty clean and nice to have the sink with good water. We all slept well.

See my other review (different site, same location) but in short - fantastic. The site is charming, quiet, and great for small kiddos (and adults) who like to hang out with farm animals. We had a wonderful time. Mackenzie and his family were excellent hosts. Highly recommend!

Highly Recommend!
We had a wonderful time at Mackenzie's working farm camp spot. It is located on a lush area of green grass overlooking a pasture and the expansive property of the farm. There is a picnic table, padded chairs, BBQ, electricity and best of all, STARS AT NIGHT. Millions of them! Bring a pad to lay out and gaze up at the beautiful galaxy. There is a clean outhouse up the path with washing station right next to the chicken coop for added entertainment. We enjoyed watching the cows and got to visit the little calves in a separate pen. The farm is located about 25 minutes from Bend - an easy drive through beautiful country roads. This was one of our best camp spots of the summer and we will definitely be back!

Mackenzie’s place was absolutely fantastic. We had the chance to stay at both sites over two days and they were quiet, charming, and beautiful. My son particularly loved seeing all the animals - especially the little frogs hopping in the grass. Mackenzie and his family were warm, gracious hosts who made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend!

Super friendly and accommodating! My stay was cut short due to a personal matter. But the space is quiet and right next to the badlands and 20 minutes from Bend. Easy get away.

My husband, pup, and I absolutely LOVED our stay on Mackenzie’s land! It’s an easy drive from downtown Bend and Mackenzie was super communicative and helpful. The area is very private and absolutely gorgeous. The large juniper trees and rock wall provide afternoon shade always keeping your campsite comfortable. I loved all the animals and the amazing views. So nice having a bathroom and potable water as well! We would definitely stay here if we are ever visiting Bend in the future! 10/10 would recommend!

If you are looking for a beautiful peaceful spot away from screaming children and partying vacationers, this is the place. Its a little way out from Bend, but not bad. Enjoyed it very much!

Beautiful family owned farm. Host was friendly and great with communication. Only complaints is that there are no showers, and the toilet is a porta potty. Super clean, but still a porta potty.

Solstice solo
I picked this last weekend to do a minimal human-contact type of solo trip and was completely not disappointed with choosing this spot to do that. MacKenzie is quite pleasant, super friendly. He reached out in the day i went in good time and gave clear directions, and even offered to help me get un-lost while I was ... *somewhere*... out there. The camping space is wonderful - much more than I was expecting, makes it comfy without being too much, and the tree lights really are a nice touch. I think most of the other reviews cover a lot of good reasons to camp here, in any case it will be a pleasant surprise. I sure hope I didn't come off like a turd for being so not talk-y while I was there, I'd most certainly love to go here again, and maybe bring a few friends along to enjoy it too. Thank you Mackenzie!

Comfy little stop over
This was a perfect resting place for the night. The site was great for my tent, nice soft grass and a couple big trees. The amenities were exactly what I was looking for and Mackenzie was great. My most favorite part? Listening to the frogs as I fell asleep.

Perfect spot for our ladies weekend! Beautiful shaded grassy camp area with lovely little touches to make it perfectly comfortable! Absolutely loved the table and light set-up, waking up to animals, and watching the sun rise and set around the ranch! MacKenzie was SO helpful, thoughtful, and easy to communicate with- he made our stay wonderful!

Total Score!
Us and our 7 and 10 year old LOVED our stay at this secluded and well maintained camp spot. The large lush grass area was such a treat and it was nice to have a bit of shade under the junipers. The patio furniture, charcoal grill, and table were a great convenience. The large and well maintained portapotty and outdoor utility sink were great to have access to. Oh, and at night the trees have twinkle lights strung up in them that you can have on of off. We loved the ambiance and thoughtfulness. Really nice hosts that live on the property and a sweet dog that loves belly rubs. We will especially miss our new lizard friend who lives in the crotch of one of the trees. He didn’t want to be touched but was comfortable just hanging out watching us do our thing. Already planning on coming back next summer!

Very nice - book it!
Listen for the Mountain chickadees in the morning, they seem to love the juniper trees that shade the campsite. Julia, Mackenzie’s mother, greeted us on our arrival and made sure we were settled and that we knew where everything was. She let us know it was okay to park our pop-up van on the grass under a tree. It was a nice level shaded spot that although close to residents was quiet and private. It was fun for this city girl to stay on a working ranch with cattle and chickens. The friendly ranch dog took a break from his/her work to come by and inspect our set up. Mackenzie was available by text and promptly answered a question. He makes his site welcoming and fun with fairy lights, old farm implements, an ornate mirror over the outdoor sink, and scattered seating and tables. There was a handy table to set up our camp stove by the bbq. The port-a-john was nearby and absolutely immaculate. All amenities were exactly as described. We stayed one night on our road trip but I would come back to stay here as a base to explore nearby Bend, OR.

Ideal.
So lovely. We stayed here as a halfway point camping between Portland and the Alvord Desert. The ranch is idyllic, and the camping spot is comfortable and private. Amazing to have access to a bathroom, water, and the other amenities offered. We loved watching the animals! Makenzie was an excellent host and communicator. Thank you so much!
