BeaverCreek Artfarm/ Heart Barn

30 sites 路 RVs, Tents21 acres 路 Seal Rock, OR
This beautiful piece of paradise has been in my family for over 100 years. I am very blessed to live here and proudly care for it now, and plan to keep it in our family forever. Renting out the land and barn areas for camping, and also for private events, are a couple ways i can share it with, and build even more awesome community. 馃挌 Please Follow @heartbarn on Instagram to see videos and updated photos of the greenery, camping, events, the barn rooms/spaces and upgrades done here. 馃榿 Come camp, reset and recharge on the beautiful central Oregon coast. Nestled in the lush Beavercreek valley, we are just outside the fog zone in our own sweet little weather bubble. We have a variety of wetland wildlife here including a visiting elk herd, a large and beautiful variety of birds and various small critters.. Early summer dawn bird song is just amazing! 馃幎 It鈥檚 lush and green and feels like the earth is hugging you when you鈥檙e camping in the carefully carved in marsh-field nooks. There are various camp 鈥渟ites鈥 to choose from, in the big field or the smaller meadow, with shade and/or sunshine & you choose which spot you鈥檇 like to stay in once you arrive. Feel free to check out all of the Barn and other communal spaces like: the beautiful dome for chillin in, stargazing bed in the tall field grass, the 鈥淲ookie Nook鈥- secret relaxing nurselog tree in the far right of the field, lounge chairs under the Cedar in the meadow, forest walk, the Legacy Lounge-art, antique and family memorabilia room-through the mural painted door鈥ake yourself at home 馃挐 It is generally quiet and peaceful out here and a super sweet rustic getaway. Weekends of course are more lively, but still plenty room to spread out and have your own peaceful space. You can have solitude out at your camp, or come to the communal barn areas for a more social time. Inside the Barn has a more 鈥渉ostel鈥 feel with couches and lounge areas, dining room area tables and chairs, dance floor with Labyrinth to walk, stage, hula hoops, fun props, art and antiques to enjoy! The Black light art and ping pong room is not to miss!! There鈥檚 a Full kitchen (minus an oven) in the corner of the barn with all you need to cook, serve and eat. (Charcoal)Bbq shed outside the barn next to the communal fire pit. Just past those is the cedar shingled shower house with a wood fired sauna too. (I generally have firewood for sale here.) There鈥檚 4 Porta potties on-site, but also, please feel free to pee outside. 馃榿 On the way to the HeArt Barn, just off of hwy 101 is Ona Beach state park. There you can kayak, canoe, paddleboard -or some even swim- on the east side of the hwy. The beach and beautiful state park is on the west side with Beaver creek flowing through it and a lovely bridge over it. We are just 5 minute drive form there. There are a couple hikes along the way, and also for jogging or biking.. I believe in living as simply and peacefully as possible, in harmony with all neighbors of all species; -plants, animals and humans- in order to do my part to sustain healthy life on this planet. I know that I am blessed for having been raised here and since I鈥檝e come home, I live in gratitude for this blessing every day; and am so thankful to be able to share some of it with you. I hope this lush green valley hugs and fills your heart like it does mine.馃挌 HeArt Barn- Earth/Art/Heart鉁ˋlways return to the heart 鈾ワ笍 Welcome!

Riverside/Riverwood

3 sites 路 RVs, Tents1 acre 路 Lincoln Beach, OR
Spring is finally here and we have our property all spruced up for our campers! Our campsites are easily accessible by vehicle and we have room for tents, small trailers and camper vans too. The sites are grassy and relatively level, situated under large spruce trees. We are still in tidewater here so both sites sit above the river (about a 15' river bank at high tide). The Riverside site has a fire pit and a deck for viewing the river. The Riverwood site is away from the river bank about 100' and sits under beautiful, large spruce trees. It is a short walk from both sites to our ramp and dock to be on the river. We have indoor bathroom facilities for our guests, Yay! It is about 150' walk from both campsites. It has a kitchenette with a barista bar, microwave, small fridge, a small living area, private toilet and shower. (bring your own towels, soap, etc.). We also offer our little Bunkie, the Glass House for an extra fee. PLEASE NOTE.....We didn't realize how popular our Bunkie would be so to avoid double booking and disappointing our guests, we will keep you posted on the availability. The Glass House IS currently AVAILABLE these dates: AVAILABLE: April 6th - 19th April 22nd - May 20th June 10th - June 13th June 16th - June 18th June 23rd-June 27th August 23rd-August 29th September 4th on into fall... The Bunkie sleeps two comfortably. It has a nice mattress (Please bring your own sleeping bags), a comfy bench, a coat rack, remote control lights and a nice electric heater. There are curtains all around for privacy. You'll use the bathroom facilities in the apartment. Bring your Kayak or SUP to explore the slow moving river (or rent ours!). Enjoy a wide variety of wildlife; migrating and resident birds, Beavers early in the morning and evenings. Our resident River Otters have been very active the past couple of years. You'll see them in the morning and evenings swimming, playing and munching on Crawdads. There are Deer although we seldom see them on our property but, they are across the river. There is a huge heard of Elk down river. Our property is about a 10 minute drive to the Ocean/Hwy 101, just south of Lincoln City. There is hiking close by and miles of coastline to explore. We are happy to help you have the best experience at the coast...Just ask! A little about the process and the property: Once you reserve a camp site you'll receive a welcome message with the physical address to the property and the instructions on how to navigate the property once you are here. There is a HIPCAMP sign with an arrow to direct you to the 2 camp sites. There are also "END HIPCAMP" signs on our property lines to preserve our neighbors privacy. Check-in is 2pm or later, check out is 12noon or before. To be respectful of other campers that are excited to get outdoors (and to allow us to clean the bathroom and make sure the property is ready for the next campers) we need to adhere to these times. FIRE RESTRICTIONS - There are no fire restrictions currently but, we want you to extinguish fires when you leave the property. We have bottles of water at each site to do so. Also, we provide fire extinguishers if there is an emergency grass fire. A little about the property and us: We purchased this property 10 years ago. Our Hipcamp sites sit on bare property adjacent to our house. The property and house had sat vacant for 3 years prior to us finding it. It was a mess, all overgrown with blackberries, moss, etc. We spent the first 3 years cleaning up the house, apartment downstairs and clearing the property so it was usable. We had only dreamed of having a place on a river...somewhere...when we came across this property. We both love the outdoors and have always loved camping with our kids. Rick is an avid fisherman/hunter while Debbie enjoys kayaking, gardening, reading and watching the river go by. Thanks for checking us out! Debbie and Rick and our two Cattledogs, Luna and Piper

We generally do not allow fires due to fire risk, but are actively experimenting with options we that might work outside of fire season. Only camp stoves are currently allowed. We are a working and developing homestead. Though the campsites are further back in the forest, upfront (and where you park) you will encounter our greenhouse, home, children's play area.

PLAN FOR 5 MINUTE WALK TO CAMP AREAS FROM PARKING AREA. NO CAR CAMPING. Please see additional site descriptions for more details! More about Trip Camp: Purchased in 2013, building out our property has been a labor of love, and is always a work in progress. We wanted to live somewhere where things move slower and where we can have a more intimate connection with the land. We raise over 30 chickens, garden, and forage the natural abundance of the area, from berries to mushrooms. In our forest, there are deer, coyote, rabbit, bear, skunk, raccoon, squirrels and chipmunks, various owls, bald eagles, weasels, cougar, bobcat, and any other number of critters. The Trip Camp sites sit on the historical Spruce Logging Railway Camps of the early 20th century. During WW1, some conscientious objectors were sent to work camps such as the one here to log the first and second growth spruce trees for the war effort. When they finished the narrow gauge railway system to transport the logs in 1919, the war effort was over and was taken over by private logging concerns.

Lost Coast Adventure Camp

1 site 路 RV, Tent5 acres 路 Florence, OR
This magical property is conveniently located 5 miles north of Florence and directly on Hwy 101, approximately 3/4 of a mile from the ocean. This is a large private site that is surrounded by old growth timber and teaming with flora and fauna. Campers are encouraged to explore, but be aware, this property is wild.. and encounters with wildlife are common. Beyond the adventuring that can be done on the property, Baker Beach state park is less than a half a mile away and there is a plethora of trails, parks, and lakes within 10 miles. We do have full time neighbors just to the North, so we ask that you be respectful and cautious with regard to dogs/noise. Hwy 101 can be very dangerous for unsuspecting pets. There are several roadside campfire stations(directly across 101 from camp) offering small bundles for $5-6/night. **Be advised that we are slowly working on the property to eventually create more camping space. There was a lot of dirt/fill brought in over the winter of 2022 and the property may not be as green as years past.** Please be our guests, relax, and enjoy!

River View

4 sites 路 RVs3 acres 路 Florence, OR
Glenada was incorporated in 1912 and disincorporated in 1922 after the town's sawmills burned. This side of the river was pretty bustling before the Siuslaw bridge was built in 1936, being quite a transformative event considering the ferry from Glenada to Florence was the main way across the river. River View is located up on Glenada mountain, on the upper level of our three-acre lot. We have a free-range farm atmosphere, with 2 children, 2 large dogs, a cat, and 12 chickens. We allow Hip Campers to bring animals on the property with the understanding that they are good around children and other animals, as our kids and pets are often running around the land. We have firewood bundles and farm-fresh eggs available for additional fees. THERE IS NO TOILET on the property. This is not a tent camping site unless you have your own porta-potty set up. This is a beautiful rustic property close enough to Hwy 101 to be convenient but far enough away to enjoy all the wildlife the Siuslaw River has to offer. Bird watching at its finest! Not to mention the view of Old Town! Learn more about this land: River View is located on the upper level of our three-acre lot. We have a free-range farm atmosphere.

This little slice of rugged heaven is just above the Siuslaw River and right off of Hwy 101. There is a steep gravel driveway but once at the top, it is flat and the view is pretty amazing. From camp, you can see Old Town. Gaze down at the Siuslaw River and all the wildlife that comes with it! We regularly see deer, red tail hawks, ospreys, and bald eagles. We have also had a bear that passes through, so beware of leaving food out. There are plenty of places to hike and visit nearby dunes, rivers, lakes, parks, and the ocean. Enjoy Florence's amazing food (ask the host for her favorites). Walk down to Old Town for dinner or bring back take-out and eat it in the tiny house (no electricity or running water). Take a short walk to Pricket state park for clamming or just relax with a book and feel the breeze off the river.聽 Whatever you enjoy, we鈥檙e sure you can find something close by! No bathroom or running water but there are 2 electrical plugs (110V and 220V) available.

Welcome to Fernwood Retreat at Bloom Hill Farms tucked away in the rolling hills of the coastal mountains. We call it Fernwood because of the beautiful ferns and forest area throughout our 8-acre farm. We currently offer three sites that are private and secluded.

Truffle Tryst Farm

2 sites 路 RVs, Tents32 acres 路 Toledo, OR
Welcome to your campsite nestled in a mostly wooded property, situated between timber lands and the Siuslaw National Forest. We offer a few open field areas suitable for camping, providing support for vehicles when dry, as well as areas nestled between Douglas Fir trees. Our modern double restroom features running water and a hot shower for your comfort. Towels and washcloths are available. Please note that while this is a working farm with minimal resources, we strive to offer an authentic camping experience. However, due to recent weather events, particularly an ice storm, our property may have debris from downed tree limbs. While the main field remains pristine, private areas may have visible debris. Explore our small aquaponics system, which has been running for about ten years and which now houses sunfish, koi, and bass. We have occasional visits from elk, deer, bobcats, coyotes, bears, and mountain lions. Our year-round stream hosts salmon spawning annually, and nearby, you'll find a large swimming hole for relaxation. Adjacent to our property, the legacy Glenwood Cemetery adds to the serene atmosphere. Enjoy stunning sunrise or sunset views from Table Mountain just a couple of miles away. Please be aware that our property borders a timber company, so access to certain areas may vary, especially during active logging hours. Ayers Lake located a bit past Table Mountain is a secluded spot for trout fishing. For outdoor enthusiasts, the new C2C trail (Corvallis to Coast) crosses our road just over two miles above us, offering opportunities for short hikes or bike rides. While we offer peace and quiet, please plan accordingly as we are fairly distant from activity areas. Note that a portion of your journey to our property may lack cell coverage, but we provide a reliable satellite connection for communication needs once you arrive.

The best camping near Siuslaw National Forest guide

Overview

About

Encompassing a broad swathe of the Oregon coast, Siuslaw National Forest offers a mix of densely wooded trails, sweeping sand dunes, and unequivocally gorgeous views of the Oregon Coast. This 630,000-acre national forest features a variety of terrains, rivers, waterfalls, and plenty of old-growth forest. Parts of the forest are also mountainous, and Mary鈥檚 Peak—the highest summit in the Oregon stretch of the Coastal Range—is right in the forest. There are also three designated wilderness areas ideal for backpacking, as well as a wide range of drive-up campgrounds both right by the beach and deep into the woods.

Notable campgrounds

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Many campsites in the Siuslaw National Forest can be booked up to six months in advance through the Forest Service website. Reservations go live every morning at 7am Pacific Time. If you鈥檙e looking for a cabin or yurt, be ready to reserve right when the sites go live.
  2. Some sites are available on a first-come, first-served (FCFS) basis. If possible, try to arrive by Thursday to avoid the weekend rush.
  3. If you can鈥檛 find a campsite for the dates you want, consider booking a Hipcamp in the area or look into camping on BLM land

When to go

Summer is the best season to visit the Siuslaw National Forest, when temperatures are generally warm and the chance of rain is lower. However, this is also the most crowded season, and some campgrounds and day-use areas get pretty busy during summer vacation. Crowds tend to die down after Labor Day, when kids go back to school, but the fall weather doesn鈥檛 tend to kick in until late September.

Know before you go

  • Cell service can be spotty or nonexistent in parts of the Siuslaw National Forest. To avoid losing your way, make sure to download offline maps or write down directions before you go.
  • Fire bans are common in the summer months, and during periods of extreme wildfire risk, camp stoves may also be prohibited.
  • Before setting out, check for road closures, irrespective of the season. Snow can cause disruptions in winter, while planned roadworks and landslides can bring traffic to a halt during the summer months.
