Nadja's German-prairie-style loft has a lot of potential for it being a new site. We stayed a night in this very minimal basic loft. We brought an air mattress and used the mattress pads that were provided. There is a full bath in the basement of the loft and a space that serves as a kitchenette, or you can make your meals outside on one of the tables. Overall, the loft has a simple and rustic feel. The site is very 'prairie' like wih Mt. Saint Helens in the background and friendly chickens roaming freely. Nadja was very communicative and made us feel welcome despite her being away at that time.
My husband and I had an amazing time at Bandon Wayside. The place meets more than your expectations, it is super clean, well maintained, the hosts are so kind and ready to help. In spite of being amidst the motel guests and RV campers, it was orderly and pleasant to dwell in the space. The amenities like the outdoor kitchen/dining area, smoking rooms, and the oh so delightfully clean bathrooms are wonderful. The cute downtown area is within walking distance and the beach is a 15min drive. You don't want to miss Face Rock! We are definitely coming back.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay on David's idyllic island. The way to Duncan Island is very picturesque. Tucked away from the main road, the camp site is hidden enough yet makes you feel like you aren't completely out of civilization. There is plenty of land to set up your site, we set up close to the raspberry bushes, it has a water pump, large campfire ring and a trampoline. We learned some amazing things about the island like the high quality of soil, plenty of opportunities for duck hunting or fishing; furthermore the water is gravity fed and with the perfect system of how the water flows and is fed to the island, you won't find mosquitos. Camping out early spring it was plenty warm during the day, and at night it got pretty chilly, but with our campfire going, it was comfortable. We also enjoyed stargazing around our fire! Ps- For the light sleepers know that there is the occasional noise from the highway.
When we arrived at the neighborhood in which Freya's site is located we were quickly surprised as we followed the path to the back of her house in which the caravan was so intimately nestled. Surrounded by bamboo and various lush growth this site feels private despite its urban surroundings. This space is lovingly and intentionally created for travelers with all the basic amenities. We were comfortable inside the caravan, with heat provided, comfy bedding, and a place to sit back and relax. Freya is warm and kind, communication was great, and her cat Django is the most friendliest cat I've ever met!
The Oak Woodland Tent Camp site is very pretty. My husband and I were fortunate to experience a clear and sunny day, so we enjoyed being around the site, camping was so fun since it felt isolated enough (except for the noise from traffic at times). Lots to explore, great for pets and kids to run wild and for you to roam around. Loved the sound of turkeys gaggling nearby (possibly from a neighboring farm). Coming in from Portland, the ride is gorgeous and ample of places to go hiking, the scenery is amazing.
My husband and I had a really nice time staying at the Cot Spot. Beth was on top of communication prior to our stay and gave us true expectations. Despite the rainy, cold weather we were able to stay warm and cosy inside since Beth advised us of how the conditions would be. She was warm and welcoming and took some time to show us around her property. The property has a good mix of farm vibes with the chickens, bunny and cats but also a safe residential feel. This is a great affordable place to stay since it is close to the hot spots like Mt. Hood (1 hr), the beach (2hrs) or downtown Portland (1.5hr).
Peggy is the sweetest, most helpful and flexible host. We had a wonderful experience at Graham's Get-Away. The cabin is tucked away in an intimate forest setting. This simple and cosy cabin has everything you need, fully equipped kitchen, dining area and a wood-burning fireplace. The loft has 3 beds, the most comfortable sleep you'll get! If it wasn't for the continuous downpour we would have enjoyed some grilling out on their spacious deck. This is the perfect spot for your family or a group of friends to camp at, the setting is beautiful and peaceful.
Peony and Suman are so down to earth, they will make you feel like family and you will not want to leave! They are the most warm and kindest people and it reflects in their way of living, in their home and on their land. This oasis of green is the perfect and peaceful getaway for those that want out of the city noise. You will feel like you're on an island, with lots of green, fairy gardens winding in and out of pathways, tiny cabins, canopies of wood and foliage decorating each spot..this place will take you back to your childhood. Every nook and corner is intentional, it is a retreat. Peony will show you her herb/garden and Suman will kindly offer to do yoga with you!
Bob and Kori are the most kindest, hardworking and genuine people. We were honored to stay at their sprawling ranch, learn about their land, their rescue horses and their cool heritage. The first thing we did were meet their horses, Kori introduced us to each beautiful horse, telling us their backstory and how people can come learn and ride them at the ranch. We proceeded to our site that's lined by solar lamps. Our red tipi was the first one, there were two other tipis. Kori talked about their plans to have conestoga wagons added to their site, which we are very excited about! The site has two porta potties, and a solar-powered shower station. The property, settled 30 mins south of Crater Lake National Park is some of the most beautiful country in the state. You're surrounded by rolling hills, peaceful farm land, grazing cattle and Oregon's pleasant high desert weather... a true western experience!
Salmon Valley lookout is a gorgeous area to camp at. The site is private and well maintained. The view is very pretty, especially during sunset. The cool thing about this site is that you are minutes from Mt. Hood. Great places to hike in the surrounding areas consist of Mirror Lake, Salmon River trail and of course Mt. Hood. It does get pretty chilly out here, so pack extra layers.
Shasta and Jason are the coolest. Their cabin tucked up the hill sits over their property, this cozy cabin is the perfect getaway if you are passing through Eugene. Its a little piece of heaven, offering Hipcampers with the option to feel like they can be in the outdoors or tuck away indoors. With a complete kitchen, wooden stove, games, books, music console, I feel guilty saying that I would have been happier staying indoors all day!! However, for those with cabin fever, there are a few community trails leading to Christmas tree farms as far and wide as the eye can see, bike trails that Jason is currently carving out if you're the avid cyclist like he is. Fern ridge lake is a few short miles, perfect to lay a blanket out and read or have a picnic or bird watch. A couple of wineries surround the area as well.
Shasta and Jason have literally thought of everything to make your stay comfortable, and feel like this is your home away from home! (:
