Cedar Bloom

157 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents100 acres · Cave Junction, OR
Cedar Bloom was purchased in the spring of 2017 by Spirit Weavers Gathering as a place of peace and healing, for all walks of life. Spirit Weavers is an annual women's gathering which happens once a year each June. We host over 1,200 women in just two weeks on the land. Our beautiful forested land is located in Southern Oregon, in a small town off the 199 Redwood Highway. The land which we call home is 100 acres of beautiful protected forest and sits upon a mile of the Illinois River. We are very fortunate to be surrounded by a widely diverse population of flora and fauna. As caretakers of this sacred land, we feel a strong responsibility to honor our plant and animal allies by not only protecting them and their habitat, but also to help educate others about what lives and grows here by providing people with opportunities to experience the beauty of these plants and animals for themselves. For this reason, We are honored to host the many different groups who will gather here on this land for learning and communing with the nature that flourishes here. We feel very fortunate to be involved in this process of helping promote a sustainable and abundant future for all living things on this planet by sharing knowledge and skills from the human past that can make a sustainable lifestyle a reality for everyone everywhere. This is our home and we are happy to share it with you!

Redwood Retreat

3 sites · Lodging2 acres · Crescent City, CA
We acquired the property in 2015, out-competing a logger who wanted to cut the grove for timber. We want the redwood grove to demonstrate to our community, with its long history of forestry, that trees can be commercially valuable preserved in their natural state. You are helping us do that by staying in our woods! As of 2023 more than 80 work-exchange helpers through WWOOF (World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) have labored to help develop the property in exchange for room, board and a hands-on education. Adjacent to the redwood grove is a permaculture farm that supplies a large share of our nutrition. The property is also an overnight stopover for bicycle tourists traveling down highway 101, typically from Seattle or Vancouver to the Mexican border who find us through the website Warmshowers.

The river access is right over the levee just a few minutes walk from your campsite. Fishing on the river is allowed but you need a license. We are near the woods and river so wildlife is present.

As well as other attractions like the Jet Boat Tours and Trees of Mystery. Located at the end of a glen cell service in this area can be spotty or non existent depending on the carrier.

Free-Your-Mind Camping

4 sites · RVs, Tents119 acres · Gasquet, CA
The campground land is remotely located on private property and perfectly located for excursions to the Pacific Ocean, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, the Smith River National Recreation Area, and the Pacific Coast Ranges and mountain lakes such as the Devil's Punchbowl, Buck Lake, and Raspberry Lake. Relax and free you mind while camping on 119 acres of private property under starry skies with almost no light or noise pollution. In the surrounding area you can enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, surfing, mushrooming, berry-picking, beachcombing, birdwatching, and countless other outdoor activities. The campsites have picnic tables and fire rings, and campers are provided with 5 gallons of potable water, an outdoor, cold-water Artesian shower, and an outhouse. Bundles of wood are available for an extra charge when you book. The campsites are set within a deciduous and pine forest at about 1913 feet in elevation. There is a pond on the property, but its purpose is for wildlife habitat only so no water activities are permitted (that is, no swimming, fishing, boating, etc.) The property owner has a dog, two cats, and a menagerie of yard birds such as turkeys, peacocks, guinea hens, chickens, ducks, geese, etc. Kirk has lived off-grid for over twenty years and holds a wealth of information about the Gasquet / Del Norte County area. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the property is that it has had documented Sasquatch encounters over the past twenty years that have been published in "Tribal Bigfoot" (D. Paulides 2009). Kirk can tell you about his experiences with this and other phenomena on the property.

The best camping near Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor guide

Overview

About

Stretching for 18 miles along the Oregon Coast Highway 101, from the towns of Brookings and Gold Beach, the Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor offers some of the Oregon's South Coast’s most spectacular views. While some people opt to hike the entire stretch, most visitors prefer to drive to one of the many area trailheads for short jaunts. Popular options include the mile-long Cape Ferrelo Loop and the short trail to the viewpoint at Natural Bridges. There are also plenty of great viewpoints that can be accessed directly by car, including the House Rock Viewpoint and Arch Rock, both of which feature well-maintained picnic areas.

When to go

The Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor is a year-round attraction, and while this stretch of coast sees significant rainfall throughout the year, you’re most likely to luck out with dry days if you visit from June through September. If you’re hoping to spot a pod of migrating gray whales, your chances will be highest in mid-December through mid-January and again in late-March through the end of April.

Know before you go

  • Oregon State Parks regularly bans the use of open flames on beaches and in day-use areas. Check online or with a ranger before building a fire.
  • Be sure to check online for up-to-date information about tides and weather events, as conditions can change from calm to treacherous quite quickly.
  • Always stay on marked trails and never cross guardrails, both for your safety and to protect the local ecosystem.
  • Hikers beware—parts of the trail involve walking along the shoulder of Highway 101.
  • Accessible vault toilets are available at the Lone Ranch Picnic Area, the Whaleshead Picnic Area, and the Arch Rock Picnic Area.
