Jennifer was great - incredibly easy to communicate with and was super accommodating to our late arrival (due to a crazy traffic Jam / accident). The property is stunning and we enjoyed a beautiful night under the stars and woke to blue skies and gorgeous views. It was the perfect spot for getting some quiet and solitude. Thanks!!

Nestled in a deep canyon on the cusp of the Blue Mountains and Umatilla National forest, Hoodlum Hideout truly is a taste of "wild" Eastern Oregon. My 11 year old and I wanted to get away for a quick trip just to get out of the city. Host Jennifer was gracious and met us in Heppner, later than I'm sure was comfortable, and led the 45 minute drive to camp. On the drive into camp we saw pheasant, numerous deer with faun, cow elk with calf, and a porcupine with baby (just stop)! We set up camp next to Johnson Creek and were able to hike out of camp the following day to take in the scenery and look for sheds. We saw no sheds, but found a racer snake, bumped more deer, and were greeted by a mama turkey and her chicks when we returned to camp! The camp is primitive, but we were able to refresh in the creek and did have access to an outhouse up the road. The only suggestion I might make for the future is to create some kind of permanent tent pad and fire pit, just to remove the guess work of finding a good spot. But I will definitely be returning with the rest of my clan the next time we want to find some solitude and get into nature!

Jennifer was an amazing host and made us feel so welcome. The grounds were so beautiful and we camped right next to a little creek. We had the most privacy and had such a relaxing time. And the cute cows were an added bonus! Highly recommend!

The cows loved to come stare at us from afar hahaOur camp setup in the distance
