About Blackberry Grove- Green's Acres
Pitch a tent on a sturdy camping platform, or nestle into the woods, and surround yourself with nature in this private, forested campsite with a picnic table, plenty of shade, and blackberry bushes all around you (feel free to graze!). The campsite is located in walking distance to the main house and is adjacent to walking/biking/horse trails. There is a seasonal creek that runs parallel to the campsite and we have a small hobby farm with miniature horses, goats, alpacas, chickens, ducks, and kittens that you are welcome to enjoy via guided tour (free). Our property is quiet and peaceful with deer, turkey, wild birds, and more roaming often. The Applegate river is only a couple minutes away (less than 2 minutes to a beautiful swimming area!) and the Rogue River is only a 10-15 minute drive away. Both are great for rafting, paddling, boating, floating, etc. The 172 acre Fish Hatchery Park is about 3 minutes away and offers great hiking trails and picnic areas on the river. Other places within a 15 minute drive from our property are wineries, shops, farms, theaters, and local restaurants. The Oregon caves are 39 miles away and the Redwoods and Ocean are under 2 hours away. The rogue valley is full of things to do!

The vibe at Blackberry Grove- Green's Acres
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The blackberry grove is peaceful and suffused with both sunshine and shade. The road is a private driveway with little to no traffic that ends at BLM land, where we took a hike through the forest. The camping area is across the lane from the guest house: far enough to feel private, close enough to feel comforting that other folk are nearby. The hosts were so friendly and accommodating, and I could tell they really took time to make their space inviting: there was a games table and a common area, a beautiful outhouse with a gravity shower, a clean picnic table, a hammock, and a level platform for comfortably pitching our tent (which the kids totally dug jumping from--don't worry; it's not high!). The entire grove is cut through blackberries, and there were so many we picked until we couldn't any more (and there were still more!). They were sweet and juicy. ALSO: the farm! Tanaia and Chris gave us a tour of their little farm. They are both educators and theater folk, so their animals are named after musicals they've put on or loved. There's Catexander Hamilton, Fiona the goat, the chickens are all named after Hamilton ladies, etc. One of the goats enjoys cuddling if you sit on the swing, and the alpacas have the most beautiful eyes. The bunny, Olaf, is snow white and the softest creature I've ever touched. Our stay was relaxing and refreshing. Thank you for being such fabulous hosts!
Great spot to camp! The platform is very nice to utilize and there are two sturdy trees near the picnic table to string my ENO hammock between. Almost fell asleep in it waiting for the stars to come out. Tanaia was very sweet and came by to say hello, but other than that, it felt like my very own wilderness. Woke up in the morning, unzipped my tent and found a black tail doe and her fawn perusing the blackberries (which I foraged for breakfast), after a brief marvel & standoff, they hopped away into the timber. BLM land is literally in the backyard of this campsite and the hiking didn't dissapoint. Saw a wonderful sampling of critters at first light. I'll definitely come back!
The layout of this site was great for families and larger parties! There were games set up for kids and relaxing areas for adults to retreat to. An amazingly crafted bathroom/shower and tent platform were waiting there as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone passing through for the day/night in need of a place to get out in nature!
All was as expected! Great space and was particularly grateful for the platform given a lot of rain that fell during my night of camping. Would note that the property is rather close to a small highway, with some road noise into the evening (not enough to keep me up though). Thanks, guys!
