Pitch your tent on the coastal forest next to the pond or in a private hidden forest area. Fall asleep to the singing frogs and stare at the stars. We are just out of the fog bank, nestled in a tiny valley with less wind and a little warmer than spots right on the coast.
Take a short walk through the forest, visit the farm animals, maybe collect some eggs for breakfast or maybe something fresh from the garden will be available. In the summer, there are huckleberries for your pancakes...yummmm.
Enjoy evening fire at the communal fire ring, roast marshmallows and exchange stories. If you have any questions about your trip to the coast, just ask Nathan or Heather. Nathan grew up here on the coast and both are huge outdoor enthusiasts.Can accommodate RV’s and trailers but no hookups.

The vibe at Dew Valley Ranch
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
It was a wide open space to set up camp wherever you’d like. Heather was unfortunately away so we had to do some exploring on our own. However she was very quick to reply to questions. We had fun petting the horse until we realized (slightly painfully for our son) that the fence was electric. Maybe that’s common sense though and we should of know. Besides that the stay was very nice. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows and hot dogs 😁
If you're even thinking of camping anywhere near the Bandon area, stop what you're doing immediately and book this site. Heather and Nathan were beyond my wildest expectations for a host. They were super friendly and Nathan even volunteered to show us around the local beaches, old town area and to have a pizza and beer with us. They provided tons of information and were incredibly hospitable. Felt like staying with long time friends our whole stay. They will also give you total privacy if that's what you desire. As for their place, it's 40 acres in an enclosed ranch. They let you pick your spot. We picked a secluded field near some trees for shade. The field had mint growing in it that you could smell while in the area. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. You are really missing out if you don't book a stay here.
Heather and Nathan were friendly, generous and super fun! Their land is beautiful, lush and secluded with numerous wooded and meadow camp sites. Our particular site smelled like mint- delicious! Not only is the land gorgeous but the hosts were more than accommodating. They let us use a fire pit, camp chairs and other super helpful provisions. Couldn't have asked for nicer folks with whom to share space.
Heather and Nathan were exceptional hosts who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and that we had everything we needed. Beautiful property with lots of animals to meet :)
What a GREAT experience. Although this is fairly primitive camping, the property is beautiful, the hosts are out of this world, and the sites are roomy and open, yet incredibly private. If you are looking for theme park style camping, this is not for you. Want to gaze up at the stars in silence without the all-too-familiar rude camping neighbors, this is your place. There are many options that Nathan and Heather will offer in terms of tent or RV locations, and all of them will exceed your expectations. Very convenient to the Bandon beach loop, and all the cool things the area has to offer. Reasonably priced, great availability when the whole coast is stuffed full, and a really great experience overall. If we camp near Bandon, this will be our place!
