Ruah Ranch

4 sites · RVs, Tents120 acres · Sublimity, OR
Ruah Ranch is situated on an old donation land claim and was also the site of nomadic Native American tribes. Abundant wildlife graces our acres as well as the beautiful Thoroughbred horses we raise. You'll likely be serenaded by coyotes in the evenings and may catch sight of them during the day.  Three different species of raptors frequent the skies above the ranch and beavers have established outposts along the stream. Beautiful thoroughbred horses will greet you every morning from their nearby pasture while you enjoy your coffee in the shade of the trellised Wisteria. Silver Falls State Park is a short drive away where you can enjoy hiking and biking and even guided horseback rides. The Oregon Gardens are just a bit further north on the outskirts of Silverton and many wineries dot the landscape all around. If you like horses we’ll be happy to give you a tour of the ranch and introduce you to the resident equines, many of which have horse racing royalty up close in their lineage.

Molalla Ripple

11 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents25 acres · Mulino, OR
Welcome to Molalla Ripple! Enjoy the sound of the Molalla River rolling over the rocks. Wake up to birds chirping and tall trees swaying in the breeze. The campsites are sixty feet apart for privacy and one path leads to the river with two private beach areas to relax. NOTE, Please use the clean bathrooms provided. DO NOT USE THE WOODS or camp site as your bathroom room. Thank you, let's keep things clean and safe for others to enjoy! Jsm Ranch started in 2004 when we moved from Oregon City. This once was a working farm with two chicken barns and a meat locker barn. All had been fallen into disrepair before taking owner ship. In 2007 we planted 200 tree's and 100 shrubs to build a new fish and wildlife habitat along Woodcock Creek. We then focused on building fence along the Molalla River to protect water quality. From there, we started raising Black Angus in 2008 after spending four years cleaning up the fields to make it safe for animals. We strive to be good stewards with our land as we continue to work with Clackamas Soil and Water to make better working lands. You're only minutes away from the town of Molalla to grab a bite, groceries or other camp items. Also have Molalla Rodeo just 3 minutes away on July 1-4th. You won't be disappointed for a great breakfast at Tammy D's (Mulino, OR), sandwiches at Humble Pig or pizza at Bear Creek Pizza & Pub.

Historic, Quiet Organic Farm

7 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents21 acres · Salem, OR
GeerCrest Farm occupies Kalapuya land, settled by the Geer family in 1847, and is still owned and stewarded by the family. The house Ralph and Mary Geer built in 1851 stands and is one of the oldest in Oregon to remain in the same family. GeerCrest Farm and Historical Society manages the front portion of the land and has provided farm-life experiences for all ages since 2007, along with day and overnight experiences for individuals and families. Along with its history, the valley view, small creek and pond, farm animal, and diverse wildlife at GeerCrest is a truly unique experience. On the 20 acre property, we offer two tent camp sites, a tree house, as well as two woodland lodgings. Our peaceful, small farm offers a reflective immersion in nature and history among the occasional chatter of chickens and baaas of sheep. The scenery from all corners of the farm is incredible - a favorite is the westward view of the valley pasture at sunset -- called "Homer's View" after famous political cartoonist and Geer descendant, Homer Davenport. No matter which camping site you choose, the sounds of the creek, pond frogs, or conversing owls are sure to lull you to sleep. Please say hello to our flock of chickens, barn cats (they may say hello first) and small but mighty herd of sheep. Explore the Heritage Grove of historic trees, the Memorial apple orchard and pear glade with varieties cerca 1840s, indulge your senses in our medicinal herb garden, ponder the historic 1854 black cottonwood tree and chat with our farm family while they water the veggie gardens, if you so wish! Your experience will certainly be unique to the season. GeerCrest Farm is truly an off-the-beaten-path gem.

Zen Acres

8 sites · RVs, Tents40 acres · Estacada, OR
We purchased this slice of paradise in 2003 as a place to relax, recharge, and someday build our dream home. It started as nothing more than a gravel road leading to a small clearing with an old bus and a couple decks. Our children have grown up out here learning a deep respect for nature and the real (non digital) world. Now empty nesters, we live on site. Part of our retirement planning is to spend next several years developing the lower portion of the property (approx. 15 acres) into a campground and retreat for our guests, as well as our own family, friends, and grandchildren. The campground area (currently) consists of a handful of primitive campsites, and a group area. We are working steadily on improvements, including adding more sites, improving the roadways, and upgrading the common areas. In all we will likely have 12-15 total designated camping areas (including a group area or two, as well as a couple hike to secluded locations). For much more details regarding our philosophy, history, and future plans please visit our website at www.zen-acres.com. There is also a lot of additional information listed on the individual campsite descriptions.

Zigzag Mountain Farm

6 sites · Tents50 acres · Rhododendron, OR
Located on Mount Hood about an hour from Portland, Zigzag Mountain Farm is home to an organic garden, old homestead, house, yurts, and barn. 50 acres of open meadows and forest, bordering thousands of acres of national forest.  The farm is home to an organic garden, campfire circle, picnic area, a city bus with a campers' kitchen, outdoor seating area with BBQ, kids play structure and hiking trails. The cabin on the property was built by the original homesteaders. Britta and Jim purchased the property in 2009. It had been vacant for a number of years. Giant slash piles scattered the land from previous logging.  The house and cabin were not livable and needed major renovations. In 2019 we purchased and brought in a city bus and converted it to a campers kitchen. A year-round creek flows through the property and 3 major rivers are nearby. The Zigzag Mountain Lookout Trail leaves from the property. The property was homesteaded in the late 1800's. E. Mountain Drive was the wagon train trail into Portland, known as the Barlow Trail. Zigzag Mountain farm offers the perfect escape from the city.

The best camping near Silver Falls State Park guide

Overview

About

Set in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Silver Falls State Park is the crown jewel of the Oregon state park system thanks to its waterfalls, all of which are easily accessible via the 7.2-mile Trail of Ten Falls or several shorter hikes. Add more than 9,000 acres of temperate and old-growth rainforest and miles of backcountry trails, and you’ll want to spend a few days here. With RV spots, cabins, tent camping sites, group sites, and a horse campground, the small Silver Falls Campground allows campers and equestrians to stay overnight and explore. Several day-use areas also offer picnic areas, horseshoe pits, playgrounds, and a swimming hole.

Notable Camping Spots

  • Best for tent campers: Loop A offers 43 tent sites with water nearby and 10 standard RV sites.
  • Best for large RVs: Loop B offers 38 standard RV spots and can accommodate rigs up to 83 feet.
  • Best for privacy: Fourteen rustic cabins offer beds, heat, and electricity. Cabins 8, 9, and 10 are especially set apart.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Book in advance if you plan to visit during the busy summer period, especially over weekends. Sites can be reserved online or by phone up to 30 days in advance.
  2. A very limited number of first-come, first-served sites (B35-43) are sometimes available. Check before showing up at the park to avoid disappointment.
  3. For the best chance at an uncrowded campground, visit in winter. Tent sites are closed, but electric sites and cabins are open year-round.

When to go

Although summer is the most popular time to visit Silver Falls, spring is actually the best time to see the waterfalls at their fullest. The falls have the lowest flow in summer, and some especially dry years see fewer than the usual 10 waterfalls. Guided horseback trail rides are available from Memorial Day to Labor Day. While some camping is still possible in the winter, not all facilities are available.

Know before you go

  • Limited supplies are available in the park, though ice and wood usually are at the campground. Pick up groceries and other supplies in Silverton, Sublimity, or Salem.
  • The Trail of Ten Falls is steep in some areas with unpaved sections. It’s not suitable for wheelchairs or strollers. 
  • No pets, bicycles, skateboards, or in-line skates are permitted on the Canyon Trail portion of the Trail of Ten Falls.
  • Two campsites, four cabins, and campground restrooms and showers are accessible to wheelchair users. 
  • All standard campsites and four of the cabins are pet-friendly. Be aware of bears and cougars in more remote areas of the park.
