Great spot! Stacey is SO accommodating and provides some key essentials such as drinking water. Close enough to go explore Portland or OOB, yet be able to return to tranquility. I enjoyed Stacey's place and I'm sure you will, too!

We enjoyed the privacy of a home camp ground. There were lots of fun things to do within a short distance- hiking, swimming, fishing and the best ice cream stand anywhere😊.

Great stay! Friendly and helpful host, nice flat ground for a tent, a grated fire pit and small table. The forest was peaceful and quiet, and it was a 5 minute drive to small park where you could jump in the lake to cool off. Great stay!

Staying at Runaway Acres was great! Our site was private from the other sites on the property. Stacey was very responsive to any questions we had before the trip and made sure we had water for the fire/shower. It was convenient to buy firewood at the gas station nearby. Also great being close to great hiking and rivers. Overall, great experience!! Thanks Stacey
