The vibe at Vineyard on S. Umpqua River

We had SUCH a great stay at the Freed Estate Vineyard! We didn't get the pleasure of meeting Bryan, but Mike and Pam were absolutely wonderful - so welcoming and fun! The campsites overlook a gorgeous stretch of the river and were so peaceful, very accommodating with fire rings, a (clean!) portable toilet, and easy river access. The vineyard setting is really lovely, the adorable farm animals make for great entertainment while you're over visiting the tasting room, and the quiet nice air all make for a great camping experience. We were only sorry to not be staying longer! (And the wines deserve its own review on the proper platform, but seriously - don't miss an opportunity to meet some truly great wines! )
My stay at Freed Estate Vineyards was excellent! As soon as I arrived Bryan was there to greet me. He even stayed to give me the full line up of their wine and they were all delicious. I also enjoyed the conversations! My site was great and it was a gorgeous evening next to the vineyard. Thanks for a great stay :)
Wonderful location far beyond expectations. We were the only campers there and had the place to ourselves aside from the sweet farm dog keeping watch over us all night which was great. Beautiful river access for swimming, large gazebo structure with tables and seating with river view. There are train tracks on the other side of the river but trains are rare and it was fun to see them come by. Remember to get some wine from the winery. This was our first hipcamp experience and it made us hungry for more. Thanks Bryan!
This was a bit of a marketing oversell. The pluses: Bryan was super nice and easy to deal with, the site did overlook the river, and we did feel safe there. The minuses: our site was basically a rough, dry, dusty clearing with no amenities except a small plywood table. No potable water accessible, no fire ring, a marginally clean portapotty, and bushwhack access down to the river. The whole place felt like it had been nice once but hadn’t been cared for in years. That said, we had a pleasant enough evening and the moon was beautiful. But I wouldn’t have chosen that site if it was accurately represented on hip camp.
This was a fun and unique camping experience! Upon arrival, I called Bryan and he came out to meet me right away. He showed me a couple of different areas available for camping - one down in a shaded area, closer to the river, and others along the road in the vineyard. There is a great spot for swimming in the S. Umpqua River, and he even gave me a wine tasting! There was also a little building that serves as a communal area with tables, chairs, and electrical outlets (which was so nice to charge my phone!). This was a great space to escape the hot sun and watch the wildlife enjoy the river.
This is private land at a vineyard. Roads are gravel - we asked about motorcycle safety and was told it was ok. We totaled our bike on their road :(. They were friendly but were more interested in getting us to wine tasting than getting our camp set up. We then had to wait for them to move their trailer even though they knew we were on a time limit and had reservations. Water says nonpotable but we were told it was ok. We had issues with power and after wrecking the bike we left about midnight. Didn’t stay the night and even though there was a serious accident on their property no refund was offered.
It was a nice piece of land and the water is beautiful. To go play for the day, if I lived there would Ben great. But camping with a 32’ trailer was not ok.
My kiddos, dad, and I loved our stay at Freed Estate Vineyard! Bryan's a hospitable conversationalist re: everything from wine science to the local bird breeds. He stopped by w/ a bottle of delicious '14 Cab Sauv and a couple of glasses, and was happy to loan us a tarp for our tent. Quick access to the S. Umpqua River meander. Friendly farm dog Molly will play fetch w/ you for hours. Weather was smoky and campsite could be slightly more groomed, but all in all great HipCamp spot.
The camping was great, close to the river and the beautiful Syrah grapevines. This was our first hipcamp experience and we are looking forward to more. Thanks to hipcamp and thank you to Bryan and his lovely family.
