Pitch your tent on a lush grassy area in the midst of a 40 acre bison and Yak ranch. Enjoy the majestic Cascade Mountain Range in the backdrop. Pine Mountain Ranch is a working ranch and every experience is different. Oversized picnic tables and communal fire pits. There is a hose with potable water. We provide hot shower and porta potty. We are 5 minutes from Bend and the last stop on your way to Crater Lake.

Located just 6 miles from Bend and the nearest brewery. On the edge of the Badlands, where you can hike numerous trails. Close to the Pine Mountain Observatory.

The acre campground is adjacent to fenced pastures and a small lake. Depending on the grazing rotation you may be up close to a herd of yaks. There is a road that runs along the length of the ranch you may access to view the livestock.

This location was perfect for spot to stay near Bend, OR. The host, Alan, was extremely helpful and informative, and the designated camping area was very spacious! It came complete with a fire pit and portable restroom, and it bordered the Yak and Bison paddocks. When staying here, be sure to check out the Buffalo and Yaks on the farm, and travel out to Smith Rock State Park during the day (only 30 minutes away!)

The field area designated for tents is perfect for spreading out and enjoying the nice weather with friends or solo!This site is only 30 minutes from Smith Rock State Park! A perfect place to spend your day hiking, climbing and exploring the outdoors! A portrait of one of the many buffalo living on the farm.A portrait of one of the many yaks living on the farm.

This was a beautiful ranch to stay at for our first night near Bend. My kids loved roaming around the open areas and seeing the animals. The view of Mount Bachelor is beautiful and the stars at night even better.

Had such a wonderful experience on the Ranch! The hosts were very friendly and their land is beautiful! We came back to camp one night and the bonfire had been lit by the hosts for us. The ranch is close to downtown Bend and is very peaceful. Highly recommend!!

We recently stayed here on a PNW road trip. Not only did the site meet our expectations but it was better. Alan is a great host and the property is very well maintained and cool (it’s a sustainable farm) and close to Bend (5 minutes). The campsites are picturesque, just like in the pictures and it’s great to have access to a clean and private bathroom and have security due to the property owners living onsite. Definitely would stay here again!

Very beautiful and well-maintained campsite right outside of Bend. Alan is a wonderful host - friendly and accommodating. Only thing separating you from the wildlife is a fence.

The location at Pine Mountain was fantastic. It was such a gift to have soft grass to setup camp. Thank you for a beautiful stay.

Best campground ever! Clean, well maintained, and only fifteen minutes away from downtown Bend. Alan was super friendly - he welcomed us and then retreated back into his house, allowing us to do our own thing. The bison and yak were good company!
