Minto Island Growers is in the path of totality and sits on 300 acres of open farmland bordered by woods; there are many prime viewing locations, both private or with our farm guests. We are located 10 minutes from downtown Salem, surrounded by farmland, Minto Brown Park and the Willamette River. Tent sites and dry RV sites are available in various places on the farm, all within close proximity to our Farm Stand which has water, picnic tables and of course offers a beautiful setting amongst flowers and organic vegetable fields.

The vibe at Organic Farm Solar Eclipse Camp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We were down here for two nights leading up to the eclipse. They have a cool outdoor hot shower, clean portapotty and nice host. Best of all this is at an organic farm and the farm stand was open and so was their food truck serving wood fired pizza, milk shakes and other lunches. They also grow tea, and harvest and sell it at the farm stand.
The hosts at Minto Island Growers were so welcoming and accommodating. They thought of everything including bathrooms, showers, and potable water. They even had extra eclipse glasses for those who needed them. Watching the eclipse at their farm was an incredible experience. And the best part was they let us roam around the farm and sample their delicious produce!
I loved the farm, it was quiet and in a beautiful area just outside of Salem. Reminded me of Ananda farms on Camano Island, WA, peaceful and run by friendly creative people! Sorry I missed the yoga...
We were allowed to pick fruits and veges from the farm, specifically blueberries, squash, and Kale. This was a nice surprise!
The camping experience started off with a short and low key tour of the farm, where some of the food was growing, etc., and the highlight - a really awesome outdoor shower under a huge evergreen tree and located on a deck platform. With a beautiful view!
Great place to view the total eclipse. Nice picnic area and farm stand, gorgeous views and flowers growing nearby...also including a food truck where food is made with ingredients from the farm. We got there after it closed in the afternoon and I wished it was open longer. Although, the free fruits and veges for the taking definitely made up for it!
Overall a great time. Loved hearing the crickets at night, seeing the stars and the eclipse of course!
My boyfriend took a shower and thought it would be nice to have another shower head in there would have been great, and also maybe a little more privacy...even though it has more now then in the past with new curtains on 3 sides and quite the view, as elevated.
Thank you for opening up your farm and hope to come visit again when the food truck is open!
Had an awesome time camping here for the eclipse. The farm is beautiful, and everyone there is super friendly. It was nice to be able to buy produce and prepared food at the farm stand. It was also really fun to be able to pick some of our own food, which made this a unique experience. The outdoor shower is really cool, though it did feel a little exposed to the campsite behind. It was just a 10 minute drive or so to downtown Salem, which was also convenient. Would definitely come again!
