Two acre campsite with COVID safe check-in. I will give you the number to call and settle details for contact-free stay.  Tall summer grass, some hillside and some flat land, with creek, at this natural location. Oregon's best beaches are a short five mile drive away.

Roughly triangular two acres has gravel road on two sides and the creek as it's other boundary.  DOGS: please keep your pets at your campsite, and off the road, for safety.  Please poop scoop.

This land has been in our family over 50 years and it's a joy to share.  We've never used herbicides or pesticides...Free organic blackberries, all you can eat, in late summer.  Yum!

If questions arise after arrival, do NOT NOT NOT look for host in person.  Drive back out until cell service resumes (we sometimes don't get cell on site).  Kindly please plan ahead so that you don't have to call Host late at night.

A shovel and a bucket with rope will be left inside the small shed.  There is ONE campfire site, surrounded by fire bricks.  Use bucket for creek water to FULLY extinguish after.  Forest Service tip:  use your hands to feel embers after dousing with water, if embers are cool to touch, you did it safely.  This is because most forest fires happen AFTER campers have left, when embers re-ignite.  The shovel is for burying poop.

Your campsite is inspected between campers and garbage, unburied poop, or hot embers, will result in a fine billed to you.  Respectfully please understand.

Stars visible on clear nights include the Big Dipper and Orion constellations: very bright since we are far from the ambient lights of the cities.

We are at about mile 5 on North Beaver Creek Road at Wolkau Road.  Note at around mile 3 there is a nice interpretive center where you can learn about native plants and animals and a great walking trail.  Also after mile 9 the land is BLM and Forest Service owned, so public recreational access is allowed.  Happy camping!

Our stay at Beaver Creek was pleasant..... We loved how green everything was and how different of a landscape it is from our local surroundings in Central Oregon. Listening to the music of the birds singing around us while we played board games was so lovely. The location is great about 5 miles from the beach. Andrea will recommend a perfect beach spot that is less crowded and easy to access. She had loads of local recommendations of things to do (for all budgets) and places to eat including great fish & chips!! Her directions were easy to follow and clear. Upon arrival we were greeted with a map of Newport, a tidal chart and some soap that is safe for the environment and the fragile creek habitat that runs through their property. This was very thoughtful. My one recommendation would be to add something upon arrival on where to do your "number 2" business if necessary. The area surrounding our campsite was so dense (and beautiful) that it might be hard for some to find a spot to squat that was not visible from the road or too close to the creek... At least from the camp site we were at. For a little more privacy, the lower campsite is slightly more removed from the property and is closer to the creek. Overall, beautiful, lush spot that offers great access to the beach and comes with priceless local tips of the area. Thanks, Andrea!

Spots are equipped with fire ring. forest people camperBeach is easily accessible from this property.  5 miles away. Local beach spot.

Perfect for campers and vans!
The Beaver Creek area is STUNNING!
The sites are clean and natural. Her two pups will welcome you and the birds will sing you to sleep.
Affordable and memorable!

We didn’t meet the camp host but her mother gave us directions. There is a wooden map at welcome house but honestly wasn’t that helpful without further direction from host’s mother. The first 2 camp spots were right off the driveway and super tiny so we opted to camp in the field which was very nice. We had a visit from a goat and a few friendly dogs. Other than having a little trouble finding the spot, the actual field site was great and super close to a lovely beach. We brought my dog and had a great time staying here!

I was so disappointed upon arrival to this campsite. We didn't actually meet the hosts but the son who showed us our site was really nice and there were a couple really sweet dogs who were happy to help. We ended up not staying because the campsite was so lumpy and muddy that we couldn't find a place to put our tent. Also, there was no easy access to the creek and we could hear the other group of campers up the hill and we wanted to be in a quiet setting. Also, along the driveway, there was a big pile of garbage. It is priced low, so we didn't even bother talking to the son about a refund. Overall, it was just not what we look for in camping, so we left and found a spot off a quiet forest service road.

Response from andrea, the Host, on June 28th, 2018

We are working on signage now that we realize it was hard for this camper to get to the creek; there is access. And it's true: we were hauling garbage away that weekend, and had a pile of it at one spot on the driveway, staged to go into the dumpster. But as for her overall camping experience, I really wish she had taken a moment to come to us, before just leaving. We would happily have offered alternate campsites on the opposite end of the 35 acres. It makes me so sad that she chose to complain publicly and permanently on my site instead of communicating directly, when the solution was very simple.

The sites aren't marked with numbers and are apparently first come first serve, so we didn't end up at the site we had selected online (the one down by the creek) because we arrived later in the evening. We were a little disappointed by that and ended up at a smaller site the first night. However, we had friends joining for the second night and the host was completely fine with us moving sites, so we went out to the field campsite and it was wonderful! Perfect for multiple tents, not many cars on the road, and a nice open space for stargazing. We had a goat wander in and out of the campsite a few times but if we didn't bother him he didn't bother us. Overall, some things could have been clearer from the start but it turned out to be a great weekend of camping!

This site has a total of 3 camping spots. I picked the site farthest down the hill. It was much more secluded and right next to the creek! Here are some helpful tips:
1. When you are driving to the location, the final 3 miles or so, will be a dirt road, with about a short distance of pavement somewhere in the middle (probably for some of the homes along this area), but it is mostly unpaved, but totally doable for any car.
2. If you use Googlemaps, it stops short, about 1/2 mile too early. Just continue to follow the road (slowly) until you see the number of the address to the left, and an open path to enter and drive your car through.
3. The site I stayed in was beautiful and secluded, under the shady grove of tall aspen trees and lots of green lush vegetation. Also, I believe there is a farm nearby, I was pleasantly surprised to hear a crowing rooster in the morning.
4. There are a few ways to reach the creek, but please note they are all tight squeezes through some brush. The creek itself is small and narrow. I was there during the summer and so there were some flies around the creek (none that bite). I've camped near many creeks, so this wasn't bad compared to most, its the wilderness, we are on their territory! It was nice to hear the sounds of the creek during my stay.
5. If you are bringing a hammock, well, dont. There are no places to hang it up here.
6. Also note, I think I was staying at the best site, but you will have to park your car off and walk down a hill to get to it. Its not a long walk, just a small hillside (maybe just a few yards).

Overall, good secluded space especially for the price and last minute trip I made. There isn't much to it, and I couldn't tell if there were people at the other spots farther up!

Gorgeous tall grove of trees towering over the campsite.The typical beautiful light shining through the trees.The best-secluded spot, closest to the creek!

Thanks for a nice camping experience! Great to see a part of Oregon that I had not explored before. The public campgrounds are overflowing and we had a quiet and peaceful overnight all by ourselves. Happy Camping! Brad

1 & 2 are secluded campsites in the woods. Number 3 is more of a field space with plenty of room, but still next to the creek.
