Welcome to our little oasis! So close to town, yet private and rural!

We do live on the property in a cute little farmhouse built in 1930's. 

Although we are here, you will not see us unless you wish! We respect your privacy and want you to have a special time to enjoy the land and camping area!




Welcome to our little oasis! So close to town, yet private and rural!

We do live on the property in a cute little farmhouse built in 1930's. 

Although we are here, you will not see us unless you wish! We respect your privacy and want you to have a special time to enjoy the land and camping area!

Please feel free to play horse shoes, grill on the BBQ and lay out on the dock over the pond! We do have a sweet little hound dog (Hamilton) that may bark when he hears you, but will calm down once we tell him its ok! He is fenced in the inner yard, and will not bug you. We do have free range chickens that may say hi! Their names are Henny Penny (golden) Curly (white) and Ethel Rose (brown). 

Please Let us know if you have any questions! 

We are located right off the highway, through a covered bridge (clearance 8'6") and in the most beautiful place! Park up top and walk down a short hill to your campsite. Here we have a cute horse trailer redone and set up just for you! This just acts as just a tent, so you will still need a sleeping bag and pillow (A small Camping mat is provided, but you may prefer your own).

As the campsite is right along the highway you will hear background noise, if you are looking for a completely silent get away, this might not be for you!

The fence provides an amazing feeling of privacy and seclusion, along with a private pond and dock for you to lounge on.

There are multiple hang out zones on the property you will have full access to; under our beautiful apple tree, next to the trailer at the picnic table and bbq, on the dock, next to the horse shoe pit, you pick!

A cute A-frame structure with the rustic compostable toilet is located in between the pond and the trailer for you to peacefully release... whatever you need to!

Solar panels power the twinkle lights at night so you can read or play games late into the dark. A power strip is in the trailer as well to boost up smaller electronics (phones, etc).

The trailer is quite small (6' 0") humans and above might have a difficult time sleeping fully laid out inside) but oh so cute! Just take out the chairs, and place them outside when its ready for bedtime, and layout your sleeping bag!

You are more than welcome to set up your tent if you feel more comfortable, or If you have more than 2 people. (4 max)

We are only about 10 minutes to downtown Bend. Uber does pick up and drop off here, so please no drinking and driving! We are only about 2 minutes away from Target/ Trader Joes and you could technically walk if you wanted to! (1.7 miles away, it's along the highway so it wouldn't be a beautiful walk... but doable)

Awesome little spot that is close enough to Bend you can uber! They provide a lot of little things with the sleepable trailer. It was very nice.

This is a great spot if you are traveling thru the area and need a nice, safe spot to camp for the night. Alex is super nice and welcoming and has put a lot of care into making her property comfortable for guests - a cool horse trailer turned into a chill spot to read or hang out with electricity and a well attended outhouse with thoughtful amenities. And some snacks if you need them! The road nearby did not bother me as I was sleeping in my car. I would definitely stay here again.

This host was absolutely lovely, and the grounds were beautiful! The trailer was super cute and homey feeling, and Alex - the host - had set out a few snacks, games, and a few other things to help us feel more at home. I have only used hipcamp a few times before and the times i did was for booking relatively large and well known campsites, so i was a bit hesitant in making this booking, but i regret absolutely nothing. We had an incredible stay and I definitely recommend it.

p.s. it does get a little chilly in the trailer at night so i would recommend bringing extra blankets!

Palomino paradise was great! I felt very safe! I’m 5’o and the trailer was just long enough for me. Alex was quick with responses, provided a camping light, the cooking set up works out great and it’s very clean. People can ‘lounge’ under the tree, listen to frogs at the pond, or just read a book. No WiFi but my cellphone worked perfectly fine. I recommend!

Alex was fantastic! Very friendly, communicative, and gave great instructions. The spot had quick access to the highway and was the perfect amount of respite from the city while still being incredibly close. We appreciated all of the additional touches (charging station, potable water, compost outhouse) and found it very easy to relax in the space. Would stay here in a heartbeat again!

Right off the highway, cute trailer

This campsite is nice, and the trailer is a very cute little setup! It’s very easy to get to, and accessible from the main road, which is the primary drawback. It’s right off the highway, and there’s no escaping the sounds of cars and trucks driving along the highway at night. Not a deal-breaker, but also not the most restful sleep we’ve had.

That being said, the site has what you need, and Alex is very responsive! Would consider staying again in a pinch.

Hey Anthony! Curious if you guys stayed in the trailer, or ended up sleeping up on the hill in your camper? The parking space up on the hill is on higher ground causing the sound waves to angle up from the source of noise. This causes that spot to be far louder than down the hill where the horse trailer is located. I apologize you had a less than an incredible time.

First off, Alex is an amazing host! She set us up with refreshments and a wonderful environment. We were dead tired from driving all day and she was there to help us when we got lost. Let me clarify that her directions are right on, but the gps took us about 5 miles off course. Alex was quick to answer her phone and explain where we needed to go. The accommodations are cozy and you feel so free an open like the deer that were grazing in the yard when we woke up.

Such a cute vibe of a place. They had everything you could’ve imagined for a fantastic chill time. Coffee, games, a pool, towels, sleeping pads, truly EVERYTHING. Highly recommend.
