Intro: Hi! My name is Nathaniel. I'm a commercial and lifestyle photographer based in Portland Oregon.
When I'm not capturing moments with my camera, I enjoy writing songs, reading, and hiking around beautiful locations wherever I can go.
Here are my thoughts on the site - If you’re looking for a place to pitch a tent without a clamping experience, look no further. There’s a firepit that will serve you well, and flat ground for a tent.
There are houses on either side of the site, but it’s still relatively private because of tree cover. There is a porta-potty and a hose, but the hose seemed to have a weak stream.
If you need a place to stay that’s close to Tillamook without frills, you’ll enjoy it here!
Heather is an excellent host! Upon arrival to their lovely property, I was greeted by her riding a Harley Davidson Scooter and guided to my campsite. The forest clearing was peaceful, and each site was equipped with hammocks, tables, and fire extinguishers. There was a clean porta-potty nearby, along with sinks for washing hands and dishes. The barn is a short walk away, and has clean, stylish showers as well as fun games to play inside. Outside there is a communal firepit and a small playground for the little ones.
Also, check out their sweet retro trailer (available to rent)! So cool.
This site is indeed beautiful with the pond, field, and horses nearby. However, there are not many amenities if you’re looking for that. I’d recommend bringing all the gear you’ll need to make this an enjoyable stay.
Staying at the rainforest retreat was honestly a great experience. A tent, air mattress, sleeping bag, and pillow were provided, as well as a couple of chairs. I also appreciated the peaceful environment of the camp overall, as well as a bathroom and shower.
As you’ll see in the photos, there is drinking water, utensils, and pots and pans as well. I’d recommend staying here, and a visit to Crescent Lake nearby is worth it too!
Camping near the river was a truly unique experience. Donald was very accommodating. It’s an excellent place to enjoy a fire near the water in the evening, and if you have a license, you can fish there as well.
Although the campsite is up against public land (the river bed), it’s tucked away enough to where you won’t be bothered by anyone. Make sure you keep your dogs on leash, because the forest is dense and hard to travel through aside from the roads. If you enjoy camping (and don’t need a shower or indoor bathroom), you’ll love staying here.
Staying here was really a peaceful experience! The hosts were really helpful and friendly, and I felt safe. This time of year (august) the river was amazing to walk around in and even swim - totally warm enough. I’d recommend lounging in one of the hammocks in the afternoon, and hanging out near one of the communal fires in the evening. Canon beach is also super close - they recommended several food and coffee spots, as well as Ecola state park.
The only caveat is that If the campsites were full, it may feel a bit crowded.
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!
