Welcome to Ffynnon!

Ffynnon is a forested 80-acre retreat and farm located in the Nehalem River valley just south of Vernonia, Oregon. Our unusual name, Ffynnon (Welsh, pronounced FIN-un) means 'source,' or 'spring.' It is a place for returning to harmony, a place of restoration and inspiration for our guests. Parts of what is called Ffynnon now was at one time fallow land, completely logged and in some areas, used as a dump site. Over many years, our efforts have helped restore the forest to its natural beauty.

Camping at Ffynnon is close to nature and the elements, so campers will want to bring plenty of the necessities to ensure their stay is comfortable and relaxing. Campers will enjoy getting-away-from-it-all in a private forested retreat and farm setting. We have many shrines and quiet spaces, two meadows, two large gathering circles with fire pits, and many lovely sites for camping, all connected by our several mile trail system. Ffynnon is minutes from the Banks-Vernonia trail and about halfway between Portland/Hillsboro and the coast - the perfect place to camp on your way there.

We have 10 sites available that can hold up to 3-4 tents and 8 campers at each location. Sites 1-3 are large areas in the open Main Meadow and sites 4-6 are on the perimeter of the main meadow just inside the shade of the tree canopy. Sites 7-9 are deeper in at the newly developed upper camp and site 10 is in the North Meadow - the most private site, but furthest away from the showers and porta potties.

Our mission is to provide a private sanctuary where Art, Spirit, and Nature meet!

I had a great time while camping at Ffynnon! I was on a bike adventure with friends all on bicycles! We began our journey in Portland and then took the max to Hillsboro. From there, we biked to the Banks-Vernonia trailhead and biked the trail to Vernonia where we got dinner from the food carts from the Vernonia Jamboree. From Vernonia, it was only between 3 or 4 miles to bike to Ffynnon. During my journey there, Michael and I were in communication via HipCamp messages. All the communication was very helpful! We were able to easily find the campsites.

On this particular day, we were the only campers there and they informed us that we could choose any spot to set up camp. They had port-o-potties and a hose with potable water. They are also 4 amazing outdoor hot showers! This was so nice to enjoy after all the 38 miles of biking we completed. They also set up a propane fire pit for us to cook over and enjoy which helped since there was a fire ban in the area when we camped there. He even brought us a dozen fresh farm eggs! We definitely used them for breakfast.

Overall, we had a relaxing time at Ffynnon. If I had more energy, I would have explored more of the trails on the property.

Thanks for being such an amazing group. We're so glad you had such a wonderful time and you are welcome back to explore the trails any time! Each season brings something new, and fire bans are much less common in spring and fall. Hope to see you again soon!

Friendly Camp host. Beautiful campgrounds. No city sounds. What a great place! I’d come back, maybe with more people.
