The "Love Farm" (River Runs Through It) was a fantastic stay! We slept great with the gentle sound of the river that flows right by camp. Easy to get to and a short drive from Eugene. Richard and Luana were wonderful hosts. They showed us around their property and the three available campsites. They have put a lot of work and careful thought into the campsites, including two available compost toilets for use. Two of the sites have a fire pit and also available at the site we stayed at was a table and two camp chairs. The river is gorgeous and it is such a peaceful campsite. We felt welcomed and will definitely be recommending Luana and Richard's site to folks we know. It exceeded our expectations. So far this is our favorite Hipcamp site and we would love to return. A+!!!
Our stay at Beaver Creek was pleasant..... We loved how green everything was and how different of a landscape it is from our local surroundings in Central Oregon. Listening to the music of the birds singing around us while we played board games was so lovely. The location is great about 5 miles from the beach. Andrea will recommend a perfect beach spot that is less crowded and easy to access. She had loads of local recommendations of things to do (for all budgets) and places to eat including great fish & chips!! Her directions were easy to follow and clear. Upon arrival we were greeted with a map of Newport, a tidal chart and some soap that is safe for the environment and the fragile creek habitat that runs through their property. This was very thoughtful. My one recommendation would be to add something upon arrival on where to do your "number 2" business if necessary. The area surrounding our campsite was so dense (and beautiful) that it might be hard for some to find a spot to squat that was not visible from the road or too close to the creek... At least from the camp site we were at. For a little more privacy, the lower campsite is slightly more removed from the property and is closer to the creek. Overall, beautiful, lush spot that offers great access to the beach and comes with priceless local tips of the area. Thanks, Andrea!
Our stay at Oregon Desert Stars was fantastic. Carissa was very welcoming with her two large dogs (they were so sweet). She showed us around the property and we chose a great spot to pitch our tent. Enough room for several RVs, water and electric hookup too. The night sky was beautiful and we were serenaded by the pack of coyotes in the distance.
