We have a small area in our Alpaca pasture designated for campers. We are a short drive (2miles) to down town Hermiston. It is a grass field that will be mowed for visitors. Our ranch has been here since the 1940's and has decreased in size since its days as a potato farm. The Alpacas are shy but curious. They are not dangerous but do not like dogs and other small animals. R

In the summer we have several farms in the area with fresh produce for sale and Blueberry picking just down the road. You won't want to leave town without picking up a world famous Hermiston Watermelon! Come stay with us "Where Life is Sweet!"

Like cute alpacas? sure you do!
We stayed two nights at this location. All 4 of us (two kidos 10 & 5, and 2 adults) had lots of fun camping at spot 6. The ranch has several goats and alpacas (and many chickens), and they are very friendly. We brought apples and carrots to feed them (chopped smaller since we didn't Wana harm the alpacas), and they ate every bit of them. We were the only ones camping which was kinda nice. We had no problem driving our 17 foot jayco into the field gate once I messaged the owners at my arrival (easy to level, solid ground) . Note: (the animals do use the field that is for camping when your not there) (they did show up for a bit this morning randomly but was nice to see them), so watch out for poo (they do it in the same spots..so it wasent bad). Just take note..this is a ranch..lol. plan on leaving your shoes outside the camper/tent. The fun we had far overcome this though! The kids loved feeding/watching the animals!! We parked our jayco right along the fence...Setup our large mat to put our propane fire pit on and chairs (recommended) ..had our generator going...played some Mario cart 8 on the switch..brought a camp Chef griddle to make pancakes..
Bacon...hamburgers...good time! The owners were quick to answer questions, and very receptive to all the animals needs! Not our typical camp out, but the kidos will definitely remember the experience! I would recommend this stay! Be prepared for cute animals, and a memorable experience. Go in with a open mind and you will be rewarde
Fun farm stay!
Fun farm with lots of animals to visit! We appreciated that Eric met us at the gate with a flashlight when we arrived after dark! Also enjoyed the farm fresh eggs Jen gave us the morning we left. Would caution that there is a lot of road noise, so if that bothers you, maybe stay elsewhere.
Quick and easy
We were on a long road trip with children and needed a place to camp for the night. We unfortunately got in later than expected but the hosts were awake and helped us get situated. Very friendly. Although it was dark and we left early the kids liked seeing the animals. Hope to return during daylight sometime.
I was really grateful that I found some availability over a busy Labor Day weekend. Jennifer was wonderful, and the alpacas and goats are delightful! It was a nice grassy field and felt very private. It was a little closer to town than I expected so there was a busy road nearby, but other than that it was a beautiful stay and gracious host.
Loved camping with the critters!
Great spot to spend the night on our way to Hood River. The alpacas and goats were adorable and the pasture shaded and nice. We left with fresh eggs and fertilizer tea for our flower garden at home compliments of our hosts. Jennifer and Eric were welcoming and very helpful when we had an issue with our hot water heater. The nearby Riverside Park was a great place to walk the dog.
