Peaceful and stress free!
I very much enjoyed my stay at Grace Acres. The hosts are friendly and helpful, and it’s clear that they love their land and enjoy sharing it with campers looking for a beautiful, peaceful place to stay in Oregon farm country. The views of Mt Hood and Mt St Helens, and the entire mountain range are spectacular. I enjoyed waking up to the mountains glowing at sunrise.
We stayed at Grace Acres for my hubby's birthday.
First, the good: the hosts are very pleasant and welcoming, the location is beautiful, and there's a flush toilet about 300 feet from the camping area. For anybody who's wondering, there aren't separate facilities for men/women. Just a single toilet/shower/sink in a converted shed that isn't air-controlled. There were 2 other camp sites already in use when we arrived, and I think there were 4 adults total (including my hubby and I), and we never had to wait in line for the bath house. Also, the bath house was very clean.
What made our experience less than stellar: The owners also rent their facility for weddings, and they were very busy prepping for a wedding that was gonna take place 2 days later. This included mowing the large lawn between the camp lot and bath house. The mowing continued until just after 10 PM that night, so we didn't get to enjoy peace & quiet (or nature sounds) like we had hoped.
For our first 2 trips to the bath house, there was no way to get to the bath house door without being sprayed from both sides by sprinklers that were on and aimed high (perhaps they could set the sprinklers to turn on during the overnight hours?).
There was no hot water for a shower in the morning. Apparently another camper turned off the breaker to the water heater. Since the breaker box is uncovered, and right where one would expect a light switch to be, perhaps Grace Acres should cover the breaker box to keep this from happening again. The light switch is actually located behind the door. You have to walk in then feel around behind the door for the light switch.
As we were pulling out, Paula approached our car to let us know that the breaker was the cause for the lack of hot water. She apologized, and I could tell she truly felt bad.
I wanted to be honest in reviewing our experience, but I don't want to discourage anyone from staying here. It truly is beautiful and the hosts are very friendly.
You definitely want to stay here !!
This was a serendipitous find, at the last minute, on our trip down to Oregon. We had travelled 6 hrs from WA. We had reservations for the Silver Falls State Park ,but we ended up arriving a day early. Nothing available at the Park at all.
There weren't any other campgrounds around open, (due to the wildfires from 2020) we remembered looking up HipCamp before and in the middle of nowhere on the side of the road, we found the listing for Grace Acres .
They had availability at the very last minute. we ended up sending Paula a message and booking right there on the side of the road. Wow what a find !!! When they say you can see Sunrises and Sunsets from your site , they were absolutely 100% accurate. We ended up arriving at their farm less than 10 mins before the sunset !!! Amazing !!!! It was beautiful.
Now, when we arrived, it was Paula's daughter Faith who greeted us. Paula and Ed had gone out for the evening!!! A little night off from the farm !!!
Faith was great !! She got us all squared away and gave us the lay of the farm. We ended up getting the #2 spot. We had an electrical hook up (20amp) which was enough for all we needed. It was one big square gravel lot with 6 different spots.
We had a 20' E-Pro trailer pulled by a Jeep Gladiator, tons of room. We picked this farm as well because they allow pets. We have a Chocolate Lab that has a ton of energy. They had a huge fenced in area they use for the wedding events they host there. He had the run of it all ,Amazing !!!! They have a really nice communal fire pit with chairs and they even supply the wood!!! You could bring and use your own portable fire ring /pit for your site but ,if not, then you can walk across the green grass and use the one set up. They have water and a really nice shower/bathroom building to use as well. OMG they have such a beautiful pond with huge Koi in it!!!
We went to bed to the "Symphony of Frogs" as well as the sounds of distant Coyotes. Other than that , nothing!!! it was super peaceful and so very quiet. We woke the next morning to the most beautiful sunrise coming up near Mt Hood. Oh, BTW, you could see to the east Mt Hood, Mt Adams, Mt St Helen and Mt Rainier. Off to the west ,you could see Mt Angel and the Monastery where they host Octoberfest. They have a brewery, lolol Monks and beer, go figure !!! all from the end of the fenced area near our site. Anyone could have seen this as well from any site !!! Breathtaking !!! We took tons of pics!!!
The next morning, Faith came out first, to check on us, to see how everything was. Followed shortly after by Paula , then Ed. Great people , very caring and gracious in their offerings.
Our check-in to the park wasn't until 4 pm later that day and Paula let us stay a couple hours past our check-out time.
We couldn't have asked for anything better then what we received from this experience.
Oh and btw, all this for $25 !!!Come on!!! for our first time using HipCamp and going there for the first time... WOW !!!Great experience!!!! We will be using them again !!!
We were the first people to stay there that day!!! I mean literally !!! . Well ,actually, there was a really nice older lady down from Portland with her little doggy who arrived just before us. We were the first !!! Only started listing 2 weeks prior. We have AT&T and had minimum 3 bars service. Full connectivity. It wasn't needed.
We flew a kite on the grass, drank some wine, chilled out, rested and totally enjoyed HOW FREAKIN QUIET IT WAS !!!
It's about 10 mins south of Silverton OR ,which is a beautiful little town.
Even though we had pre paid for our State park camping for 2 days , we were contemplating staying here instead.
If you are a writer, musician , or yoga head or simply just want to sit and relax ,unwind and destress or are just passing through and need a place to rest on your journey, this is absolutely the place.
Couples in Love who want to get married away from it all ,with all the modern day amenities and comforts, You will love it here. It's big place, could host a large event or retreat.
Highly recommended, We give it 10 stars!!! Cause 5 is just not enough!!!
I am writing my very first review ever and i'm not affiliated with HipCamp or did I know these wonderful people before hand.
I am however, really glad I met them , There amazing!!!
We will definitely come back here to visit.
I'm sure very soon there will be a waiting list. If you are planning a trip to Willamette Valley area and want a great inexpensive place to call your own for the night , then this is the place !!!!
Thank you so much !!!
Joel and Jessie from WA.
This is a great spot! We stopped in for the night as we were passing through and had it to ourselves. The property is beautiful- especially at sunrise! Paula was a great host! Thanks for the stay :)
This was my first Hipcamp experience and it was incredible! The property is beautiful and so well kept. The family that owns it (Ed, Paula, and Faith) are so kind and helpful. The sites have 110 outlets which is a HUGE plus. The location is so serene and peaceful. Even their dog was the sweetest (and cutest) dog ever. I had an issue w/ my trailer when I was leaving, and Ed came to the rescue right away. Paula and Faith were easy to communicate w/ and super responsive the entire time. I was so happy there, I even extended my stay for an extra night. The cost is comparable to a Harvest Host site, w/ the added bonus of being able to stay more than one night. I will absolutely be returning to Grace Acres very soon!
Perfect for astrophotography!
I stayed here very briefly to test out some camping gear for a much longer trip but I can tell already that I will be back to for some astrophotography! Plus on a clear day you can see Mt St Helens, Mt Hood, and Mt Adams.
The property is off of a quiet farm road. It is very peaceful there, no farm or construction noises.
The owners are super nice and they also have their property setup for wedding/other formal events.
Hoping to visit again shortly!
This was my first hipcamp trip and I am very happy I did. Needed a short getaway close to home and the hosts Paula and Ed were great. If you are a plein air artist as I am, you would love this place. Thanks to Paula's feedback after booking, I got a nice spot and with a slight angle, private. Since I was on the south end near the field entrance, there is a slight depression, requiring minor leveling. 120V 20a service nearby if you need it. But with such clear skies, my solar panels had all they needed. I hope to return again soon! And with my plein air kit this time!!
