Separate yourself from the crowds and packed state campgrounds by booking your stay with us. To ensure that the Dew Valley Ranch is the right experience for you please read all information provided. We offer a unique Oregon camping experience and farm stay. We are more than your one night stopover. Every campsite is large, PRIVATE and dispersed throughout our forest. When booking a site pick any numbered site don't be discouraged by the map it is not accurate. When you arrive you will have several options to pick from based on your needs.  We look forward to meeting everyone that comes through the gate to make sure your stay is the best.  We offer a quiet restful retreat, we are not a party campground. Children 10 years or older welcome and ZERO PETS POLICY. We have free range animals that will more than likely greet you upon arrival and this is why it's important to keep the gate closed, drive slowly on the ranch and why we do not allow pets. Check in times are from 4pm-8pm only no late check-ins as this is to maintain the safety and quality of our guests stay. All our sites are great, we don't have any crappy ones. Our check-in shed also has items for sale you may have forgotten or run out of as well as things like grills, BBQ utensils and hammocks and farm fresh eggs for free. Crab rings and lesson available. There is a camp garden which you may pick items from (seasonal). We also have a game area with corn hole, badminton, ladder ball as well as many others for you to partake in. If this sounds like a good fit we hope to see you soon.

What a delightful HipCamp - and great Hosts! They have put so much love and work into making their land a HipCamp fun oasis. It's a little bit Oregon County Faire, and a bit country with a very sweet horse and pig to guard the homestead.
It had been raining, and we knew it might be wet, and Heather had been in touch with us, concerned about how to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
This is differently a place to come back to again, and recommend to others.

This was a nice park like setting, private at the site and a lot of space for multiple tents. Picnic bench and fire area are provided and honey bucket is clean. The beach is a short drive and so gorgeous. Really fun to be greeted by the horse, pig, and the goats.

Dew Valley Ranch is an amazing place to spend a few nights. The location is beautiful and very close to Bandon. The hosts are incredibly warm and make you feel welcome. My family loved visiting the animals and playing all the lawn games. Camp sites are spread out and private. We will be back in the future

We felt so good at Dew Valley Ranch ! Heather and Nathan are really attentive and caring ! We really enjoyed the tent site itself, the privacy and calm, and also the hand made showers, under the trees ! It was nice to say hi to the horse, the pig, the goats, and the chickens! The little trail from the ranch is pretty cool too ! We'd love to come back !

Dew Valley Ranch is a BEAUTIFUL, relaxing place to spend some quality time in the woods! We loved it so much, we only left once during the long weekend to watch the sunset at Face Rock, which is a must see. Be sure to go down to the beach and explore the caves! (Thanks for that tip, Nathan!)

Heather and Nathan were perfect hosts: present when you needed them, responsive via text, and provided clean, up kept amenities. The regularly serviced potties around the grounds were the cleanest I’ve ever used! And the showers they built looked wonderful, and included hot water. The check-in shed is filled with all kinds of supplies you might need during your stay, including fire wood, lighters, and starters for sale, grilling utensils and hammocks for checkout, and plenty of other goodies. They do provide water, but we brought our own, knowing their’s is limited, coming from a well. You don’t have to, but I bet they appreciate it.

There’s a spot in the middle of the campground where they set up a bunch of lawn games like badminton and cornhole. That was fun, too.

There were plenty of very sweet animals to interact with, including baby goats, chickens, Hammy the pig (we called him the Hamburglar) and my personal favorite, Rikki the horse. We also saw deer, chipmunks, bunnies, hawks, and beautiful plant life.

The camp site was perfection. Very clean, surrounded by beautiful forest, and equipped with a fire pit and picnic table. Feeling like we were in the middle of nowhere, while still being close to amenities and our hosts when we needed it was the best of both worlds.

The 10 minute hike down to the creek is a must-see! So much beauty in there!

We truly loved Dew Valley and will definitely be returning! ♥️

We absolutely loved staying here even just for 1 night! It was a beautiful site and the property was so well cared for and thoughtfully laid out with very clean porta potties and awesome outdoor showers. We were also greeted by a horse and pig as soon as we arrived so the stay was off to a roaring start :)

We are already trying to plan a repeat stay and hope to have the chance to explore the trails around the property and meet more animals :)
