A working farm based on conscious land stewardship and A safe space for all! No matter gender, sexual orientation, color, religion. ALL are welcome here.
Only 15 minutes from the Wildlife Safari.
We're far away enough from the city and I-5 that there's little to no ambient light or noise (except wildlife, livestock, and our local country road).Pick your own spot on this 90 acres of rolling pasture and forest. This is our private land so you'll experience privacy in your own personal paradise.
Our space is versatile enough to provide many different camping experiences- let us know how we can make your experience here unforgettable.
There are a couple flat sites developed near the barn and in the pasture just below our house. The pastures rotate with cattle so be aware of seasonal camping companions.
Adventure seekers are welcomed to head out over the acres and find a site in the woods or a the peak ridges in the rolling pastureland. During high fire season we keep a strict pack in/ pack out policy to avoid grass fires.
Any tobacco smoking may be done off of the property. Enjoy a hike down our entrance driveway to smoke. Please, be very aware of fire hazards in the dry season.
Big goofy animals and small silly animals live cohesively by having respect for each other and giving one another enough space to feel safe.
This is a working farm including daily chores, long days, early bedtime for early wake times. Feel free to get involved or ask for something. Remember that you are a guest in a functioning system of permanent culture building! We are living 3 generations with grandparents helping grandchildren watching parents grow (-; Welcome family!

I had a great stay here! The landscape is breathtaking and the sunset is beautiful. Though I didn't meet Benjamin, Christian was a great host and showed me a good spot to set up and let me use their bathroom. There are sheep, pigs, geese, and cows on property but their noise didn't bother me at all. Definitely recommend this spot!
Benjamin was a great host! We camped in a little space about 40 ish yards from the house. He opened up his home to us for bathroom/shower/water etc as well. We explored a forested area near the farm as well. Lots of cows and other animals around but none were around the camp area. Overall, if you're in the area this is a great place to go and Benjamin was super accommodating! Wish we could've hung out more.
We arrived at Best Friends Farm late afternoon where Sonya, our host greeted us. She gave us a few options as to where we could set up camp. We could explore 90 acres of their forest and camp anywhere within or camp under the big oak tree. We decided to camp under the oak tree and be closer to the amenities. Besides our host family, our neighbors included sheep, geese and cows. After setting up, we hiked into the forest, saw some peaceful cows, and helped feed the pigs. Sonya & Benjamin have many plans for the farm like setting it as a permaculture & sharing their homestead expertise. If you dig the vibes and smells of a farm, this place is perfect. Overall, Best Friends Farms felt like home & took me back to the days as a child when I visited my grandparents farm.
I came to BFFarm with 3 of my travel companions in a Westfalia camper van on our way up to Oregon to chase both our dreams and total solar eclipse totality. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to experience the most INSANE starry night we had ever seen in our lives from the campsite at Best Friends Farm.

-Sonja is so sweet and has a dope potato tattoo on her chest

Thanks Sonja! Loved it!
Amazing place!! the views are stunning, the animals super friendly, a cat that was our companion the whole night :). I fell in love with the little piggies as well and the super friendly cows.
Sonja and Benjamin are super great hosts... very attentive and responsive, we got lost and arrived super late... and they were waiting for us and helping us find the place until the last moment.
We will come back as soon as we can... I recommend it 100% :)
The farm has a lot of land, so it's likely that you'll have a lot of space to yourself. The area is quiet, and it's really convenient to be able to use a full restroom with shower nearby. When I arrived (August 2017) the entrance driveway was very lumpy, and I was having trouble getting my Civic up the slope. Thankfully Sonja was there, and she was super helpful and friendly and even drove my car up the drive for me. If I'm ever passing through the area again, Best Friends Farm will be first on my mind for places to stay!
We made a reservation very late during the day and Benjamin answered to us very quickly to confirm it. That's saved our trip since we all the hotels were full (#eclipse2017). We setup our tents in the very large field with the curious cows who came to visit us during the night. It was fun. The view is amazing, the sky was crystal clear so we could enjoy the summer sky. A good spot, not too far away from the i-5, to take a break and enjoy a relax evening.
