Pitch your tent in the middle of a 90 year old hazelnut orchard. We don't farm this block anymore, so don't worry about a tractor coming through in the morning! There is a good grass base to pitch the tent on. The ground slants slightly towards the creek. We have a fire pit you can use from October-May. There is a county road that goes by, so you will hear some car noise to the south, but to the north is 3 acres of field and a beautiful creek. We are a working vineyard in the middle of Oregon Wine Country, so we are a great place to start your wine country adventure. You may see our friendly Golden Retriever greet you.

The vibe at Farm Country Hazelnut Orchard
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Our drive into Warrior’s Rest camp site was stunning; the miles just before we arrived were lined with incredible views of countless vineyards. All of them were calling our name! Warrior’s Rest was just as beautiful, a perfect farm surrounded by gorgeous views and a never-ending garden. We were welcomed to set up in the hazelnut tree grove. Beautiful!
A pleasant stay near all the wineries. Friendly chickens and Golden Retriever made us feel welcome. Communication with our host was fast and easy. This isn’t a remote area, it’s a farm on a well-used road, so there is some road noise, and the view includes nearby houses and farm buildings, but tuck yourself in near the hazelnut trees and it feels very private.
Evan was very easy and quick to communicate. The location was perfect- close to vineyards and also close enough to Newberg “downtown” which is why we chose to stay here. Their golden retriever was a very friendly and welcoming addition, and man were the stars beautiful! My only qualm is that the “campsite” is just a little area next to the driveway and trees. There wasn’t much level space that was accessible further away from the driveway and barn, so it’s a pretty open and public spot. The water spicket didn’t work, but luckily town is close by so we headed in and grabbed some water when we stopped for supplies. Overall, I’d recommend this spot if you are just looking for a central location, which is all that we needed. It’s not glamorous, but the price reflects that.
All in all it wasn't a bad experience, but certainly not what we had expected. Essentially it was a gravel driveway near a house, a clean port-a-potty, near an un-mowed, slopping hazelnut orchard. Outside of the basic directions, included in the listing, the host provided zero communication. It was only standard reminders from HipCamp and never the briefest of welcomes from the host. If we had been camping, it would have either been camping right in a driveway, or walking through tall grasses on unlevel ground. The road noise was so-so, but there were also huge spot lights in the drive, so it didn't feel very scenic. We never saw or heard anyone the whole time, but camping in someone's driveway made us wonder if we would bump into anyone while going pee in the night. Luckily the cell coverage wasn't bad, and it was close to town as well. I think the site has potential, but it would require some work to provide better communication from the host and be more welcoming, to make it actually qualify as hip. Not sure about the chickens or dog that others spoke of, it felt like squatting at a vacant gravel lot for the weekend.
