These spacious campsites next to the road are a beautiful and ideal place for easy and safe overnight midsize rv / car / van / popup / trailer camping or setting up a tent facing our enchanting forest. It's proximity to the I-5 freeway makes it a convenient spot to rest while passing through.  Relax in a hammock while watching wildlife or start your morning off with a short walk through the forest below along the nature trail. This site is very private asside from being next to the country road.  

SITE 1:  This roadside spot is at the West Edge of our property and feels more private as it borders our neighbors wall and the heavily forested area below with overhanging trees.  There are two designated tent sites or you can pick your own spot. There is a wire spool table and log seats. 

SITE 2: This roadside spot is beneath a large fir tree and overlooks the forest and property below. The open area is great for sitting around the fire pit and star gazing. There is no table at this site currently, but if you really want one we'll get it for you.  There is 1 designated tent spot or you can pick your own. 

You'll have access to The Salmon Creek River on the Southeast edge of the property which is about a 7 minute walk down throught the woods from the campsite. There is also an entry through the pallet gate near the driveway to the right of the house.  Splash around in the water or launch a kayack and play beneath majestic cedars or catch crawdads and fish for your fireside dinner! You'll have river access between 10 and 8.  Our neighbors across the river seldomly come down but it's a possibility.

*****INSIDER TIP***** If you want to stay several nights and don't want to be by the road, reserve a spot at our Forest Retreat site or Riverside Retreat site! 

 Preferred Check in times 7:30 AM-9:00 PM-We do accept later arrivals, but meet and greet may not be available until the morning. 

We are family and pet friendly and like to live communally. We’d love to share a meal and join you around the fire or down at the creek but understand if you want to have your space.

The bucket toilet located in a tepee has woodchips, a compostable bag and a trash bag provided to line it. Cover your waste with a handful of woodchips each time you use it then please pack out both bags when you leave. You may want to bring a bucket to transport your bags in the car. Use the codeword PTP when you reserve your spot so I know you read and understand this!

We loved staying at Julie’s place - it was the perfect spot for us to park our van and camp for the night, very close to Portland. Julie and her family greeted us and were so lovely and welcoming. They provided wood for a fire and showed us their trail down to the creek, it was quiet and we felt very safe. I would definitely recommend staying with Julie!

Glad you enjoyed it! We hope you had great trip back. Site 1 is definitely more private thanks to the neighbor's wall. :0)
