Fishermen, hunters, families, or overnighters - camp here in our easy access, flat field, alongside the Alsea North Fork. Views of Old Blue Mountain and the farm. Steps to the steelhead/ trout hatchery and fishing in the river. It’s quiet and peaceful here.

Close travel to deer and elk hunting (sorry, no hunting on the property). Must be self contained, no hookups. No fires please, as it’s a dry field.

Note: this field is an open area, and is not “exclusive” use. Campers from my Riverside and Grove sites will access water, recycling and garbage at this field, and are allowed use for games, stargazing, and other recreational purposes. I will also allow multiple bookings in the field. This is however a quite large field so there is plenty of space to spread out.

If my Riverside site is occupied, acccess to the river is not allowed there, but is easily available upstream 200 yards at the swimming hole.

Bill and Pam were warm and welcoming... the site and facilities are well kept. Just ask my 5 and 7 year old girls who won’t look twice at a port a potty but were excited to use the compost toilet.

Quiet, peaceful, and a wonderful place to spend a night or many!

Great opening overlooking fields and peaks. Parked in my jetta which I camp in, opened up the hatch and enjoyed the sunset. Took a dip in the swimming hole a few hundred yards away, and was greeted by small fish and the sight of bald eagles.

Quite, private and serene area right off the main road. Pictures won't do it justice, will be back again!

(Allergy info) the RV site is adjacent to a group of controlled beehives. I had some flying friends buzzing around my car, but was never bothered. However I understand this could be a concern for others.

Response from Bill, the Host, on September 5th, 2018

Thank James! Glad you like the Meadow! A word about bees. First, thanks for letting folks know about this as it can be important for some. The “bees” you experienced were most likely Yellow Jacket wasps. They’ve been particularly prolific this year everywhere. They like meat and any sweet foods, and are seen all over the ground, where they live in burrows. We’ve got traps out, and they fill within days! The honey bees in the field next door would rarely go anywhere near you, they “beeline” for the water to cool the hive, or to plants for nectar. They don’t seem to buzz around people or look for our food. They are quite passive. You can tell them as they are smaller, duller colored, and not as energetic.

I had such a fun time at the campsite, I will definitely be going back. Our host was such a great guy, we had rv trouble while in town and he did everything possible to help us get it running again. The site itself was the perfect place to stargaze and take in nature. I can’t wait to go back!

A great spot!! We camped with our two small children for one night and really enjoyed our time. The hosts were really friendly and welcoming, we loved relaxing in the meadow and the stars at night were fantastic.

Great site with plenty of space for our kid and dog to run around. Very close to some great fishing opportunities and river access for swimming. And the stargazing at night really is awesome.

This site was excellent. We were cutting our teeth on camping in our travel trailer without hookups and it went so much better than expected. The field was large enough to turn our entire rig around in, private enough that we felt secluded and close enough to fishing/swimming on the North Fork Alsea River to have tons of fun. We will absolutely be back here!

Had a great stay at Stargazer Meadow. Wide open field with lots of space for kids and dog to run and play. Trout fishery and swimming hold within walking distance, beautiful landscape, and super friendly hosts. Highly recommended!
