Though the name of this camp site isn't too accurate, it's still a nice place to be. Located incredibly close to Peter Skene Ogden State Park, it's a hop skip and jump away from a beautiful view of the Crooked River Gorge. That being said, it's about a 15 minute drive from Smith Rock, so not quite as close as we would have hoped considering other options in the Smith Rock area for camping. But all things considered, nice view of a pond located behind the house. Not a very private bathroom situation though, so if you've gotta go, nighttime is probably best.

The name has been changed! A porta potty and a deluxe 2 room solar shower have been added. Thanks for your feedback! Ben

It can be very cold here in the morning, but the golden hour is to die for.

Awesome vibe! Ben is great, super chill dude. Easy to find, decently private. View is pretty. Suggestions I would say are burn the burn pile :) Thanks!
