Here is a snapshot of my long term PHILOSOPHY of my land. Especially apt at this time. It is an essay I found in a WeMoon 2009 Calendar and was attributed to "anonymous":
Resting place, a stop on the current- underground railroad for today’s earth activists. This is a place where wanderers, weary or not, can light for a while, tell their stories, get their hands in the garden dirt,or sit in silence.
Because of the current political climate, these kinds of safe places are becoming increasingly important for those who tread the path of change-invokers and rabble-rousers. For many, the choice to be an activist means being without a permanent home.
This is a place for those who have chosen the Gypsy’s road to ground, reconnect to Mother Earth, recharge so they can go out into the world again with renewed inspiration, energized to do the vital work of steering the world onto a healthier path.
Warm beds,private space, healthy food, patience. These are our contributions for making positive change in the world.

We had a wonderful stay! It’s a perfect location with lots of privacy and access to places such as Kentucky Falls and Florence beach. There were no internet coverage so that made it even more special to be present and enjoy the fresh blackberries! Thank you so much!
Divinely perfect nature retreat
My stay at Sophia’s was blissfully divine! The land is incredibly abundant and beautiful! The stream is delightful and the gentle babbling water and night critter sounds bring a peaceful sleep! Private and feels secluded. Sophia is an absolute dream hostess! Did not want to leave!
Gorgeous property -- absolutely magical! The property had a lovely warmth in contrast with the harsh winds of the coast. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the babbling brook -- and wow, the stars were absolutely spectacular. I've never seen so many stars -- including the milky way. And if there on a Sunday, I recommend the little farmers market a few miles away. I would definitely go back to this space (even though we managed to drive over some tent stakes and had to replace six tires...) Absolutely divine space!
A hidden diamond
Sofia, the host was a divine angel who I practiced in the art of hospitality. This place was in my top three favorite places in all the world! So special... So heavenly. Going to Tadpole Manor again cannot come soon enough!!! Thank you YAH FOR THIS PLACE SOFIA AND WILLOW!
It was beautiful 😍. The hosts were lovely; very down to earth and helpful.
My only critique would be the toilet available to campers. Though it was a clean and comfortable compostable toilet, it was placed directly next to the path campers take to go to and from their vehicles (very close!). This placement made toilet access feel uncomfortable, since there was no door and the only divider was a sheet-like curtain that was difficult to keep closed.
Despite this, the property is beautiful. Charming creekside.
Private and cozy
This was my first hipcamp experience and overall it was great. The host Sophia was very sweet and we were greeted by her border collies and cats as described.
Pros: The land is surrounded in delicious blackberries that made a great addition to our morning oatmeal and we had a quiet back part of the land which was private and cozy. There is a communal area with a wash sink, complimentary water gallon, a hose and a small creek. There is also a very clean compost toilet.
Cons: This is a farm with chickens and a rooster - the rooster wakes up very early which is a bummer after spending long days hiking, however the host did say she could take care of it for us so if this is an issue, let her know before hand.
There is also no cell service here in either direction for at least a half hour which may or may not bother you, depends on what you are going for.
The creek is not something I would swim in but maybe it is ok for others?
It is a bit of a drive to go anywhere cool, 45 to an hour, but we managed to check out Sweet Creek Falls, Heceta Beach, Heceta Head Lighthouse and John Dellenback Dunes and we used the long drives to charge our electronics.
There is also a short walk (under a min) to your site through a bumpy trail, which taught me that I need to look for "park at listing" for future bookings since we mostly camp out of our car. Happy Camping!
Rustic farm tent site
If you are looking for a super rustic camp on a farm half way between Eugene and Florence, this is a great option. They gave great instructions and greated me upon arrival and gave a quick tour. I’d suggest the site closest to the creek if you want a teeny bit more privacy. Tent sites are pretty close together, 2 of which are right next to each other, so probably great for families or friends. so if you are looking to be far away from other campers this may not be for you. Great creek to dip into! Bring your mosquito repellent!
Super Kind and welcoming hosts. They made a cute common area to wash your dishes and separate your trash (pretty much the same site as the creek side site). compost toilet could use a little bit more privacy but it was super clean... it’s a farm way out in the country with a lot of charm.
🤩 starry eyed
Wonderful for watching stars. The Creek is beautiful. Make sure to wear good water shoes to get into it. Great space to be alone and wonderful for small groups. It was only me at the space that night and I think that made all the difference!
