We are a family-run vineyard and winery in Oregon's beautiful East Willamette Valley. Our property is diverse, hosting vineyard, forest and a small lake. There are several, fairly flat, grassy tent spots lakeside that we keep mowed. The sites are just a 2-minute walk from a gravel parking area with portable toilets. The site is private, quiet and a great spot to see wildlife.

The vibe at Vineyard Camp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Upon Arrival I was greeted by the owner Heidi, shes super friendly and nice! she directed me towards the camping area and through the vines I went. We (cedar and I) had a super nice spot on the lake and great weather so we were able to just lay out a sleeping pad and bag. The sun and lake were super enjoyable, there was also a boat that looks like it could be taken out but we were unsure. the gazebo was nice and cook fit alot of people!
My bf, our two dogs and I had a really great time at the Vineyard camp. The camping spot is set back behind the owners house. There is a large vineyard and small meadow between the camping spot and the owners house so it is quite private. The spot has the lake on one side and the meadow on the other side so it was a pretty neat and cozy spot. Our dogs were able to run around and have free reign which was awesome. They enjoyed exploring the water, the small woods to our left and right as well as lay around in the sun in the meadows.
Currently there is only a fire ring and a gazebo but the owners are working on a picnic table in the future. The porta-potty is usable and is next to the place where you park your car. The parking space and the camp spot is about 1 minute walk away (through the meadows).
We did not find many hikes nearby so we just hiked around the vineyard with the dogs and took in the lovely scenery that way. The Alpaca farm is next door and quite a sight to see. At night there are lots of frog and bird noises so bring earplugs if you sleep light. There are lots of little crawlers like spit bugs and earwigs so best to keep things packed up, they tend to get into everything. We were worried about being next to the little lake/pond and that there would be mosquitos but we bought one citronella candle and we were good the whole weekend. The other nice thing about this space is that you are only 15 minutes from a Safeway in case you need anything last minute.
All in all, a very peaceful and relaxing weekend. Would recommend if you have doggos that need to run free.
Heidi is a gracious host that gave us directions to a local river park and Bimart for supplies. The water provided from the hoses tasted like plastic, but that didn’t deter from the amazing little campsite by the lake! The vineyard is beautiful and we plan on coming back for the wine next time.
