We purchased this slice of paradise in 2003 as a place to relax, recharge, and someday build our dream home. It started as nothing more than a gravel road leading to a small clearing with an old bus and a couple decks. Our children have grown up out here learning a deep respect for nature and the real (non digital) world. Now empty nesters, we live on site. Part of our retirement planning is to spend next several years developing the lower portion of the property (approx. 15 acres) into a campground and retreat for our guests, as well as our own family, friends, and grandchildren. The campground area (currently) consists of a handful of primitive campsites, and a group area. We are working steadily on improvements, including adding more sites, improving the roadways, and upgrading the common areas. In all we will likely have 12-15 total designated camping areas (including a group area or two, as well as a couple hike to secluded locations). For much more details regarding our philosophy, history, and future plans please visit our website at www.zen-acres.com.

About an hour from the Portland area lives an awesome campsite with multiple cool spots. Super quiet, short trail to a stream and community areas. Firewood was available so it made it easy to have a fire all weekend. Looking forward to the next time with more friends. Great place Mike!

Mikes land is awesome! Beautiful creek to walk along! Super sweet piece of land, and close enough to small towns and big parks and hiking trails! Lots of activities but also very peaceful area.

Zen acres was absolutely perfect. The covered area was great, with nice features like functional sink, hot water, grill, and fireplace ring. Creek was very close to camp you could actually hear it. Mike was very friendly and helpful.

Great group site
The Group site as Mike's place was great for our group of 10 people! There was plenty of space with room to spare. The kitchen area with water and lights was great to have. You can hear the creek as it lulls you to sleep 😴. There were two fire pits, one outside the covered area and one underneath it with ventilation in case it rains. The Porta potty was clean and stocked with toilet paper. The group site is far enough away from the other campsites that we didn't feel like we were bothering anyone with our noise. The road in is accessible for all vehicles. Mike and all the other campers we met were all super friendly! Our group would definitely stay here again.
