Pitch your tent under the stars on our 40-acre property, Wecome Back. We bought this land four years ago after studying the sustainable agriculture design method of permaculture and dreaming of cultivating our own homestead. The property was in the same family for more than 100 years. Half of the property was in Christmas trees and we are now restoring the land with red clover and a little fertilizer help from the frequent visiting elk herd. The other half of the property is fields of old fruit tree grove and 11 acres of forest you can explore. You're welcome to camp wherever you like. We have a slackline, horseshoe pit and lawn games you are welcome to use. We are located in Colton, OR, a 50-minute drive from downtown Portland. Follow our adventure of us two city kids learning to thrive on a farm on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram under Welcome Back Woods. If interested in signing-up for a slackline workshop with Will (as seen slacklining on National Geographic Channel's The Legend of Mick Dodge), reach out to us and we can coordinate that for an additional $15/person. We can also add on a $5/person farm fresh breakfast when the ladies are laying.

Beautiful land and amazing hosts!
Amazing and relaxing to camp here. The hosts are wonderful, kind, and attentive to everythibg you could need in a camping environment. There were a lot of spaces presented to me where I could set up—forested woods, an open area with a great view of fields, and near a large amount of fruit trees. There was a ton of woods to explore with wildlife all over the place. I had such a great stay, and I can't wait to head back.
We use this Hipcamp site as a homebase for doing research on nearby streams, and it is so lovely to have a reliable place to stay where we know the owners are respectful and so friendly. Meredith and her family were extremely welcoming and accommodating to our needs, as we had a few extra requests. There is a ton of space for dispersed camping and in a few months hopefully there will be a more established glamping spot available as well. The property has access to forest, a greenhouse, and large pastures to explore. You'll also no doubt be in for a gorgeous sunset too. We're extremely thankful for this spot!
Welcome back is a great place to escape the city. It’s a very peaceful property with cute animals everywhere. Roam in the woods, exercise, cook outside or say hi the animals. The possibilities are endless. The hosts were kind and hospitable.
Having access to a bathroom would definitely sweeten the deal. Either way, a great place to visit!
I loved the peaceful mornings by the creek and one night the clouds cleared so I could see the stars. So many delightful surprises -- the new glamping setup that Meredith let me try out (tent, bed, wood stove!), the chickens (esp the Silkies), the greenhouse where you can relax in a hammock inside from the rain, the friendly people. There's also a hand water pump for drinking and washing.
