Private and secluded all-season camping on a family-friendly "community homestead" within easy reach of Portland, Salem, Corvallis and Eugene. Rustic but well marked trails take you through 80 acres of forest and meadows with multiple points of access to Crabtree Creek. You can bring a tent and hike 5-10 min to a secluded site near the creek in the forest, or set-up camp in a meadow near the main house and amenities. There is also space to park an RV or 5th wheel near the main house (no hook-ups). Occasionally there are beds available in the wood-heated walled tent or the modified shipping container "bunkhouse". 

This is a perfect spot if you are seeking somewhere beautiful to recharge in nature, rest a spell on your way to another adventure, undertake a spiritual retreat or vision quest, practice your bushcraft and survival skills, or experience a permaculture farm stay. One Saturday a month there is a free, drop-in plant walk, herbal medicine skill share and wildcrafting event on the land, inquire for dates. A LGBTQAI+ welcoming spot in the backcountry. Se habla español. Naturist hiking and skinny-dipping in designated clothing-optional areas. 

Check-out at noon just means to break camp by then - you're welcome to stick around and enjoy yourself until sundown on the last day of your stay. 

We hope to see you soon!

Infinite blackberries! Yum! We arrived and our hosts asked us what we were looking for in a site. Which is appropriate if there were designated sites. They had ample acreage, unfortunately it was all wild and overgrown with grass and thorns. We ended up pitching our tent in the middle of a pathway worn a bit from walking, but we still had to clear space for our tent to fit. Even so there were thorns that poked holes in the tent, and impossible to walk to and from. The family is very nice and eager to help, but in my opinion there should be designated or at least mowed and ready areas to camp.
