Suburbs give way to Drone Grass Flying fields. Progress through various skill challenges and maneuvers to become familiar with the drone's speed and agility.
Come and enjoy beautiful Oregon countryside at its finest. Whether you're road tripping through Oregon or looking to explore, Camp Black Rock Drobot's Aviator Field is the perfect stop. We are nestled on a 20-acre small working farm/ homestead /rabbitry with grassland and wooded areas to select that perfect campsite for Hipcampers' delight.
Campers will use FPV (first person view) goggles and remote controls to maneuver Freestyle or a friendly competition through mini obstacle courses. Bring more than one drone - one as a "risk taker drone," and one that you will never take risks. If you're thinking about "what if's," while flying, its only a matter of time until you crash. The object here is to have way too much fun camping and honing all those aviator skills!
Pitch your tent in our fields or wooded acreage which includes a picnic table and fire ring. Listen to the frogs and crickets at night, and to your campmates' gasps as a shooting star streaks through the night sky. There is quite a bit of wildlife, so the howls of coyotes and owl hoots are a nightly event, as well as the crow of the rooster in the morning
We have obtained from the Department of Forestry a waiver during fire season to allow for communal campfire in the 2018 season. This could change during "Extreme" fire threats. Smoking, driving in the fields or 4 wheeling is prohibited during this time of year.
Campsites are just three minutes walk from out houses and hot and cold outdoor showers. If you need electricity to plug in your phone or charge up your speakers before hitting your day's adventure, there is a charging station at the barn where you'll find potable water and sink for cleaning dishes
