Crater Lake Private Woodlands

6 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents100 acres · Prospect, OR
Private and protected forest woodlands, trails, wildlife, ponds, wildflowers, old growth timber and views. Unspoiled nature at its best! We are located in southern Oregon near Crater Lake NP, just off of hwy 62, part of the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway, more commonly known as the "highway of waterfalls" and near the little town of Prospect on what is known as the beautiful side of Crater Lake NP. Three waterfalls, a pizza parlor, the Prospect Cafe, and the Historic Hotel are all within a two-mile radius. If you're after that famous pie at Beckie's Cafe, you are 10 minutes close. Our 100 acre ranch allows us to host guests in their own RV's, at camp/tent sites, or in our new A-frame Cabin all located in private, and even secluded, sites. Several well maintained trails wind throughout the property and can be enjoyed by guests. Nature enthusiasts enjoy the hiking, wildlife viewing, and the beautiful ponds and woods. Crater Lake Woodlands is part of the historic Katydid Ranch. Once owned by Boise Cascade who used it both for growing seedlings to replant logged mountain sides and as a vacation getaway for their executives, the story of Katydid Ranch goes back to the early 1900's when it's owner named "Katy" used it as the "half-way" overnight lodging for horse & buggy guests traveling to Crater Lake from the Rogue Valley. Leaving the valley at the crack of dawn, they could arrive at "Katy's" by nightfall, in time for a meal and sound mountain sleep. They'd hitch up at dawn and make it to Crater Lake by nightfall. Historically, the first residents were the Rogue River Takelma and Latgawa native Americans. Latgawa lived in the Rogue Valley of interior southwest Oregon. In their own language "Latgawa" means "those living in the “uplands," though they were also known as the Walumskni by the neighboring Klamath tribes. Specifically, Ha-ne-sakh. The Latgawa were one of two peoples who spoke the Takelma language. They were hunters, gatherers, weavers and fished the Rogue River. They were known to have a stationary settlement and trading post at the Katydid Ranch location. Their tribes lived in the upper Rogue River area extending beyond Prospect and Union up to Crater Lake. Since we've owned the Ranch, we've maintained the custom of welcoming overnight guests and at the same time, we continue to honor the protected wildlife designation given to it back in the 50's. Wildlife viewing is one the delights we share with our guests. Please be mindful of native wildlife keeping dogs on leash so as to avoid chasing and barking at wildlife. Thank you. The animals here include, but are not limited to black tail deer, elk, fox, coyote, ringtailed cat, raccoon, skunk, and also typically farther up the mountain are the elusive mountain lions and black bear which we have never spotted on our property. The ponds and surrounding area are home to migratory to the Oregon Pond turtle, Canada geese, quail, wild turkeys, various owls including the great horned owls, hawks, cranes and eagles. Our pond bird watcher friends spotted Common Mergansers, Ring Necked Ducks, Canada Geese…and a Loon. The bull frogs orchestrate the evening and can be heard at times throughout the day. Katydid Ranch is a wildlife sanctuary. The flora and fauna of the forest is abundant and diverse. This land is home to many native grasses, ferns, and berries, wild flowers, as well as many other edible and medicinal plants and numerous varieties of mushrooms. If you are visiting during blackberry season, feel free to pick, pick, pick and indulge. Katydid trees include old growth Douglas Fir, Ponderosa, Sugar, and Jeffrey Pine, various Cedar tree varieties, Incense Cedar, the majestic Pacific Madrone, Alder, Big Leaf Maple, Black and White Oak, Dog wood, and Vine Maple. You may also spot the prolific wild hazelnuts. As Forest Stewards, we are committed to maintaining a well balanced and diverse forest ecosystem.

Stay in one of our Native American Tipis, nestled into the forest next to the Winema National Forest. We have miles of hiking trails, and lots of wildlife in the way of birds, bunnys, chipmonks and the occasional deer and elk, and are across from the Pelican Butte mountains. Experience what few get to know- what it's like to be in a real Native American Tipi. Come experience the outdoors as Natives have lived. This isn't any airconditioned motel room- this is the real deal. Owners are Native American. An experience of a lifetime. Questions will be answered, info. available. Also a art gallery of their artwork is on site in the office. Come and enjoy! Their ranch, Heartline Ranch & Tipi Village is on Crater Lake Highway (Hwy 62) just 26 miles down from Crater Lake. They have designated 15 acres for a primitive Campgrounds and Tipi village sites. September of 2020 we were sadly effected by the Wildfire- TwoFourTwo which took 5 of our 6 tipis. We have been able to clean up, regrow and make ready for camping guests. We once again have 6 tipis, all beautiful, and in addition, 6 new camping sites for people with their own tents. Sorry, NO rv's (vans are allowed.) Its wonderful to see all the beautiful regrowth, and to see that most of our trees have regenerated. It is now once again a beautiful place to be. It is their love for this land and a desire to share the beauty and Native experience with others to led them to open up these campgrounds. There is 15 acres in the immediate campgrounds & 6 tipi sites and 6 camping sites for folks with their own tents, so LOTS of privacy. Our ranch has 250 acres of land, great hiking trails that you will have access to for hiking, next to the Winema National Forest, and connected to the Pacific Crest Trail. You will have space to enjoy this beauty. The owner's horses are rescue horses and are their own private property. Please do NOT feed them or go up to them without the owners being there. Horses have delicate stomachs. Our gentle giants are mellow but very big so please stay OUT of their pasture. You may help us during their feeding time, if you ask owners.

The best camping near Umpqua National Forest guide

Overview

About

Spread out over nearly a million acres on the western side of the Cascade Mountain Range, Umpqua National Forest is home to some of Oregon's most spectacular examples of natural beauty, including one of the state's biggest attractions: crystalline Crater Lake. Here you'll find a mix of rolling hills, thick woodlands, powerful rivers, and plenty of waterfalls. While the forest’s abundance of beauty is certainly reason enough to visit, it’s also a prime setting for plenty of outdoor activity, from hiking, mountain biking, and good old camping, to kayaking and fishing in the region’s lakes and waterways.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for active campers: Diamond Lake Campground offers hundreds of campsites, plus boat ramps, showers, cycling trails, and a fish-cleaning station.
  • Best for fishing trips: Hemlock Lake Campground gives anglers easy access to excellent trout fishing at Hemlock Lake.
  • Best for a ghost town experience: Devil’s Flat Campground offers three campsites next to a century-old ranger cabin and horse barn.

 

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Reservable sites, including cabins and yurts, can be reserved up to six months in advance over the phone or on the National Forest Service website. Note that new sites are released at 7am Pacific, and popular spots can fill up almost instantly.
  2. Arrive early, and if possible mid-week. Many Umpqua National Forest campsites are made available on a first-come, first-served basis. You’ll have your best chances snagging a site if you can arrive on a Wednesday or Thursday, before the weekend rush.
  3. Ask at the ranger’s station about last-minute cancellations or suggestions. Rangers tend to have a good idea about availability during crowded times and are there to help.

When to go

The Umpqua National Forest is at its busiest during the summer vacation months (mid-June through early September), though you may find snow at the grounds in higher elevations well into July. If you want to beat the crowds but still take advantage of warmer and dryer weather, consider coming during the week after Labor Day, after kids have gone back to school. Just be aware that this is also wildfire season, and last-minute closures are a possibility.

Know before you go

  • Fire danger in the Umpqua National Forest is a real threat, particularly in the dry, hot, summer months. Keep an eye out for advisories and keep in mind that bans on campfires and the use of camp stoves may be in place during your stay.
  • Don’t rely on your GPS alone. It’s a good idea to plan your route before you head out, and to double check with the forest service about any road closures due to snow, landslides, or planned maintenance.
  • Bring plenty of water. Many sites in the Umpqua National Forest are primitive and you may not have access to potable water.
