Among the oaks up on our hill are several great locations to catch mountain views and enjoy the wildlife. Located in a picturesque vineyard setting on a small working farm we provide a quiet, natural setting to enjoy for several days or an overnight rest stop.
With several local wineries nearby the beautiful rolling hills of the Eastern Columbia River Gorge provide dramatic views of Mount Hood and are a great place to enjoy the sunshine! Cool off in the Klickitat River at the foothills of our property or travel to a lake on Mt. Adams for the day.

The vibe at Oak Woodland Tent Camping

Thanks Kiva for a great stay! We really enjoyed getting up in the hills above the gorge, especially at the tail end of wildflower season. Sorry we could stay for wine tasting but a self guided vineyard tour was a good substitute. Loved the view from the top of the hills.
A lovely location, up the hill past the house and barn on the road, which was a bit odd - as it didn’t really seem like a winery, but a somewhat chaotic work in progress. The upper vineyards and oak groves were truly beautiful, with lots of great spots for tents or vans. At the top is an composting outhouse and potable water tap. Views of Mt. Hood complete the picture. A great spot to stop on your way up the river or exploring the Klickitat river area. We were totally alone and enjoyed the quiet and picturesque site. One of our faves!
We had a great time! It was my first time camping solo with my kids so I was a little nervous but Kiva put us right at ease. My kids would have spent the whole time in the chicken coop playing with the chickens if we let them! Farm breakfast was great and the vineyard/ farm is beautiful- we’ll definitely be back!
Our host Kiva was very friendly and accommodating. The road around his home to reach the camping area was a bit narrow for my big truck, but we made it through just fine. I was honestly surprised with how natural and secluded the camping area is. My young kids had no complaints about using the bathroom Kiva set up in the camping area.
We got there just before sunset, in time to see Mt. Hood glow orange. The night was quiet - just the sound of the wind in the trees. We awoke to sunshine lighting up the dried wildflowers...beautiful golden colors. A wonderful experience. The site is primitive, so easiest to bring your own water. One recommendation - there was no surface to put our campstove, and with all the dried vegetation we were nervous to put it on the ground so had a picnic breakfast off site in the am before leaving. BYO table?
Kiva is very laid back and hands-off. Once you drive past the house and barn and up the steep gravel road you come to a gorgeous open meadow with pines and oaks. It was very private up there since we were the only ones camping. There is a nice little compost toilet outhouse and shady areas to get out of the sun. Wild turkeys were seen both days and thankfully our dog had no interest. It is a beautiful little spot. We were able to drive our Sprinter van up there...barely. Would definitely not advise anything bigger than a van for getting up the road.
