Located right off the 199 Redwood Highway,  we welcome you to our forest sanctuary. These tiny A-Frame cabins are our newest addition to the land.  The river is just a few min walk down to our own private  beach and swimming. The camp is also just a 3 minute walk to the lands prestine swimming hole. These A-Frame Cabins are super cozy at 100sf with an additional deck that is great for yoga or napping.   The cabins include two twin size mattresses and linen bedding. This camp is a 1 minute walk to the main house, private commercial kitchen, cute compost toilet, shower house and sauna. 

These cabins are ideal for two people.  The beds can be pushed together easily if desired.  The front part of the cabin can be closed off or opened up to the elements.  Since one side of the cabin is clear you can see in a bit but can also drape something over for more privacy.  The reason for the clear side to is allow for the feeling of sleeping right outside amongst nature. 

Cedar Bloom has available power and cell phone service. Cell phone service works great if you have AT&T or Verizon. Internet is limited but is available.We have several giant meadows with thousands of trees surrounding. We are right on the Illinois River with a mile of river frontage and 3 incredible swim spots. It's a great place to come and recharge and renew.

We are surrounded by beautiful scenery in all directions! We are close to the Redwoods, The Oregon Caves and so much more. We are close to major cities such as Grants Pass, Medford, Crescent City and Ashland.

MORE ABOUT CEDAR BLOOM...

Cedar Bloom was purchased in the spring of 2017 by Spirit Weavers Gathering as a place of peace and healing, for all walks of life. Spirit Weavers is an annual womens gathering which happens once a year each June. We host over 1,000 women in just two weeks on the land. We are located on the Illinois River just outside Cave Junction, Oregon. 

Our Main House was built in 1962 and retains the flavor of the 60’s with a beautiful Mid Century Modern feel. It houses a kitchen, dining hall, a living room, five bedrooms and three bathroom with a bathtub. It currently houses Agustin and Mea and their seven year old daughter Naia.

Grateful to be voted #1 Staff choice for Campground on Hipcamp this year!

FIRST NATIONS PEOPLE OF THE ILLINOIS VALLEY

For thousands of years, the Takelma people lived in the Illinois and Rogue River valleys, what is now known as Josephine County. They lived in small bands close to the land. Interior southwest Oregon has pronounced seasons and the ancient Takelma adapted to these seasons by spending spring, summer and early fall months collecting and storing food for the winter season. 

Salmon was central to their food source and way of life. The salmon diet was supplemented by game, such as deer, elk, beaver, bear, antelope and bighorn sheep. Smaller mammals, such as squirrels, rabbits and gophers, might have been snared by both men and women. They gathered the root of the Camas plant, part of the asparagus family, as well as acorns from the two native species of Oaks, the Oregon white oak and California black oak. Other vegetation included manzanita berries, pine nuts, tarweed seeds, wild plums and sunflowers. The Takelma are also known to have cultivated a native tobacco plant, but otherwise relied on the fruits of the wilderness for their survival. The main utensils included horn, bone and wood-made implements and a great variety of baskets constructed generally by twining on a hazel warp. Stone was used in the making of arrowheads and pestles. The clothing and personal adornment of the Takelma was similar to the tribes of northern California. Notable characteristics include facial painting, red-headed woodpecker scalps for men and basket caps for women. The women also tattooed the skin in three stripes and men tattooed the left arm. 

European Settlement of the Illinois Valley began by the 1830’s, as the gold and logging industries developed. By the end of 1856, the traditional residents of the Rogue and Illinois River valleys were forcibly removed and relocated to the Siletz Reservation on the central Oregon coast. The Takelma were joined on the reservations by their neighbors, the Athapaskans and the Shasta, as well as tribes from even farther away, such as the Coos and Tillamook. It is reported that by 1906 less than ten Takelma were alive and able to speak their native language.In 1994, for the first time in over 140 years, an ancient ceremony took place to welcome home and give thanks for the returning salmon, on the Kanaka Flats of the Applegate River. People of all heritages were welcomed at the annual Salmon Gathering on the Applegate River until 2006. In 2007, the ceremony was moved to the place where it was held for thousands of years: the Tilomikh (Powerhouse Falls), on the Rogue River near Gold Hill, Oregon. Since then, the ceremony has taken place annually in its traditional location, demonstrating that the Takelma culture is alive and will continue into the future. 

Today, Takelma descendents continue to reside on or near the Siletz and Grand Ronde reservations. The Pilgrims brought back the Salmon Ceremony to Southern Oregon. Due to the Pilgrim’s contribution in returning the Salmon Ceremony to Jackson County, Agnis Baker-Pilgrim is known to some locals as the ‘Keeper of the Sacred Salmon Ceremony. Agnes, one of the oldest grandmothers of the International Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, has returned to the Rogue Valley and today her voice can be heard strong and clear, proving that the spirit and blood of her people are still with us.

PLANT & ANIMAL RELATIONS 

We are very fortunate to be surrounded by a widely diverse population of flora and fauna. As caretakers of this sacred land, we feel a strong responsibility to honor our plant and animal allies by not only protecting them and their habitat, but also to help educate others about what lives and grows here by providing people with opportunities to experience the beauty of these plants and animals for themselves. For this reason, We are honored to host the many different groups who will gather here on this land for learning and communing with the nature that flourishes here. We feel very fortunate to be involved in this process of helping promote a sustainable and abundant future for all living things on this planet by sharing knowledge and skills from the human past that can make a sustainable lifestyle a reality for everyone everywhere.

The animals here include, but are not limited to deer, foxes, coyote, raccoon, skunks, and sometimes black bear though we havent seen any yet! The birds that surround us are migratory geese, quail, wild turkeys, hawks, ospreys and eagles. The fish that call the Illinois River their home are the Salmon People, Steelhead & Trout along with their friends the otter and ducks. The Land is a no-hunting zone so the animals here are abudant and safe.

The plant life here is incredibly diverse. This land is home to many native grasses, ferns, and berries, wild flowers, as well as many other edible and medicinal plants and fungi such as mugwort, self-heal, soap root, and a variety of mushrooms. The tree population is a blend of hardwoods like Manzanita, Madrone, and several kinds of Oaks along with mature Fir, Pine, Cedar trees, Alder, Maple and Apples. With special attention to management of non-native and invasive plants, Spirit Weavers is committed to maintaining a well balanced forest ecosystem with high biodiversity.

TIMES Please clean up and check out of your site by 12:am on the day of your departure. You can check in by 2:pm on the day of your arrival.

CLIMATE & THE ILLINOIS VALLEY Cedar Bloom holds the heart during the summer. Temps can range from 75-95 during the day and generally cools down to the 70's during the evenings. Swimming in the summer months is delicious. We have mostly pebbly beaches and a jagged rock and sand beach right where the Swimming hole is. The river is chilly until late June and it cools down again in late September. 

NEIGHBORS There is another campground right next door but since we have 100 acres, you never really see a soul besides us! Please use our pathways to travel property next to us, and respect the privacy and tranquility of our neighbors by not keeping late hours or playing loud music. 

EMERGENCIES If someone needs to reach you in an emergency, Cell phones work great on the land. If you don't get service and need to contact someone our land phones are available.

SHOWER HOUSE & SAUNA We have twelve showers total.  The first shower house is open showering with 4 showers and the 2nd shower house has 8 stalls. You are also welcome to use the sauna throughout your stay.  

COMPOST TOILET The "Honeydew Station" is our two chamber composting toilet.  It looks like a tiny house and you will see it on your right as you drive in.  Instructions are inside! 

FOOD & WATER Please bring your own food to camp. Town is close so if you need to run errands to grab food its a short drive away. All of our water is on a well and is super clean and ran through a UV light. Please keep food and garbage out of the reach and smell of animals so we don’t have animal visitors at night.  

GARBAGE If you pack it in, please pack it out when you leave.

FIRES Depending on the time of year, cooking fires are permissible in the fire pits provided. June-Sept there can sometimes be fire bans in the county.  Please NO bonfires. We have fire wood in the forest around the meadow for use for cooking fires but please bring your own wood to the land. We also have wood available for purchase in the Camp Store. 

PETS  If you must bring your pet, please message us before hand.  We ask that you clean up after your pup while here.  We have doggie bags in the camp store. 

THE RIVER & SWIMMING HOLES We have a mile of river frontage and there is tons of space for all.  Keiki Beach located down the trail from the sauna is the more shallow and flatter part of the river.  This is a great spot for families!  Mermaid Rock which is located down the trail to your left of the main house is our large swimming hole with deeper waters.  This part of the river is clothing optional.  Please be aware of the rocks down at Mermaid Rock & Dock.  The rocks are tricky to walk on for both adults and especially children.  Please keep your eyes on your children at all times while at the river.  Feel free to bring rafts to play on.  

CAMP STORE  If you happen to forget anything we have a camp store that is located in the main meadow.  The Camp store sells everything from supplies to books and trinkets.  If you text Mea she can meet you there anytime.  

GRATITUDE We feel honored to be stewards of this land. One of our main visions for this land is to protect its cultural and environmental heritage. We are excited to share about the native food forest we will be cultivating for the local community and beyond. We will also be placing the land into a conservation trust so no logging or future development can occur. For the many years to come, we will explore the ways can live in harmony with the natural world for the greater good of people and the plants and animals we depend on. We welcome you to Cedar Bloom!

🚨Stay here now 🚨For multiple days 🚨This is my second time visiting, one year later and the additions and improvements are insane. Easily in my top 5 places to camp. I originally planned to stay for one night on a 1-week road trip loop up from San Francisco and extended it to 3 nights because it's just that incredible.

Everything you need is here and more. Mea and Cedar Bloom have gone above and beyond making this a true forest sanctuary and place of healing, rest and play.

Highlights:
- Everything
- But especially, the A-frame tiny cabins
- Sauna + swimming hole, rinse & repeat
- The composting toilet 💩
- Welcome & property signage is 💯🏆
- Diggin Livin the nearby natural foods store + breakfast burrito & acai bowls

I already plan on making another trip back up here to book the Oregon Caves National Monument Off-Trail Caving Tour.

Our stay at Cedar Bloom was amazing. The A frame cabin was cozy and comfortable with soft linen sheets and comfortable mattresses. Everything was clean and neat and the small details of fresh water and solar lanterns made it extra special. The communal kitchen was beautiful with windows on all but one side, so it felt as if you had an industrial kitchen in the outdoors. The outdoor showers, sauna, and composting toilets were beautiful and clean. The most spectacular part of our stay was the land itself. The hosts clearly love and care for it and have created a beautiful, peaceful place to share with others. The river meanders around the edge of the property and the swimming hole was the perfect way to spend the afternoon with my two kids. I would love to come back and spend more time. This place is very special.

What a special location, with artistic A-frame cabins that keep you cozy and warm with linen sheets, a wool blanket and a down comforter. We spent one late afternoon laying on the warm river deck pontoon and cold morning time in the sauna and hot shower. It was a great escape!

Cedar Bloom is honestly one my favourite places to lay my sleepy head in the world, such a beautiful site and the a-frames are delightful. We ended up in a different one than what we booked, but it didn't matter. Don't forget to swim in the river and shower in the wild!!

We loved the Moon-A-Frame and everything about this magical camping adventure. We extended our stay and pitched a tent in the trees — next to an amazing fire pit.
The river is gorgeous and perfect for walking the dogs and skimming stones. The swimming hole is great too.
Bring your kayak or SUP and a fishing pole! We love this place. Thanks Mea.

Big campsite. Secluded but only a short walk to bathrooms, hot showers and a big community kitchen. Cozy beds. Great moonlit view. Great camping. Coolest cabin ever!

Cedar Bloom was an experience. This is exactly what my husband and I needed. Upon approaching the land we saw a Mama deer and her baby deer. We pulled up and checked it with the host and it’s was very simple and stress free. We got situated in our A-frame and checked in for the night. The next few days were amazing, I recommend staying for 3 days if you can. Take advantage of all the unique spaces on the land. The sauna and tub are a amazing as well as the showers. All the women working there were very positive and sweet. Even other guests were kind. Everyone was respectful and it seemed quite and peaceful even when others were nearby. I felt very comfortable as a woman/Latin woman being there. Even in the showers and sauna I felt very safe. My dog had a great time too. He got to run off leash and socialize with other dogs. His favorite part was running along the family beach and soaking up all the run rays. I recommend bringing insect repellent for the night. Also read all the instructions provided prior to arrival. This is something I wish I had done to eliminate questions. Overall I highly recommend this location. Be respectful of the land, the animals and others and you’ll get the ultimate feeling of bliss. So sad to leave. Thank you Mea and your family and staff for making our time at Cedar bloom so special.

I brought my 1 year old son with me and we spent the night in one of the Aframe cabins at Cedarbloom Farm. It was perfect to say the least! The cabin was clean and beautifully furnished. I loved how you could push up one side of the roof to create an open-air awning over the wrap around deck. Part of the roof was also clear so we could still enjoy the sky at night. It gave the feeling of sleeping under the stars while also being snug inside a cozy cabin. We were able to pull up right beside where we were camping. It made the whole process with a baby super easy. The land is stunning and you can really feel how much love they’ve put into creating a beautiful sanctuary. You’re walking distance to the river and all amenities. I highly recommend spending a night here! 🏕 🌲💫
