Located on Mount Hood about an hour from Portland, Zigzag Mountain Farm is home to an organic garden, old homestead, house, yurts, and barn. 50 acres of open meadows and forest, bordering thousands of acres of national forest.   The farm is home to an organic garden, campfire circle, picnic area, a city bus with a campers' kitchen, outdoor seating area with BBQ, kids play structure and hiking trails.  The cabin on the property was built by the original homesteaders. Britta and Jim purchased the property in 2009. It had been vacant for a number of years. Giant slash piles scattered the land from previous logging.  The house and cabin were not livable and needed major renovations. In 2019 we purchased and brought in a city bus and converted it to a campers kitchen.  A year-round creek flows through the property and 3 major rivers are nearby. The Zigzag Mountain Lookout Trail leaves from the property. The property was homesteaded in the late 1800's. E. Mountain Drive was the wagon train trail into Portland, known as the Barlow Trail.  Zigzag Mountain farm offers the perfect escape from the city.About a 1-hour drive from Portland on the base of Mount Hood, Zigzag Mountain farm offers the perfect escape from the city with 50 acres of meadows and forest, bordering thousands of acres of national forest.  Camping is not designated by sites, but by areas.

Beautiful eco-farm just off the highway but nestled into the Mt Hood forest. Lots of options for camping and great facilities. Highly recommend for camping and nearby hikes.

Awesome spot
Beautiful property, great camping sites, spotless bathrooms and showers. We pulled in about 8 pm, the host walked us to our site and pointed out the amenities, very appreciated since it was dark! The bus kitchen was the coolest!! Will be back when we can stay longer than one quick sleep and go!

Very cool place. Having clean and warm Showers and toilets was a nice perk. The community bus is a great idea and place to cook and prepare food. I want to come back during ski season
