Two miles up a gravel road. Parking on dirt or grass, light vehicles. Not available in winter. Ground is not level.
No fires of any kind due to fire danger.
Parking is under trees, so solar is not very useful.
A very loud train sometimes runs by at varying times--with a very loud whistle, once or twice a day.

No smoking, no fires, briquettes, or flames. It is a very woodsy area, and fire restrictions are in effect in summer and sometimes fall.
No children under 18 years of age due to safety concerns.
Dog/cat must stay on leash. Dogs or cats or birds only for pets.
No admittance to any buildings.
Do not ask others to come and meet you here.
Stay at your own risk, there are wild animals ambling through.
No dumping of waste or garbage.
Please don't ignore rules, it doesn't work well.
Ask for my directions. GPS can put you over a bad road.
Coming from the west on the highway requires a sharp switchback to turn onto the road. You have to just about stop to make the switchback/turn.
Small RV or trailer only. Gravel/narrow road for two miles, one sharp corner; dirt and grass and weeds for parking -- fine for good weather only.
It depends. One could stay attached to the trailer. I think a tow vehicle plus 20 foot trailer would be ok. One could pull through if a very small trailer, like a teardrop size.
Spot available if I am home and in dry season only for some spots due to rain and mud. Lighter vehicles are usually ok. I travel some, but not a lot, and I need to be home.
Eugene, Oregon is 30 miles east. The Oregon Coast at Florence is 35 miles west. Old Town Florence is a tourist attraction. Going north of Florence has a scenic rocky coastline, Sea Lion Caves, Heceta Head lighthouse and trails; Devil's Elbow park, Cape Perpetua with Thor's Well, Yaquina Head is at Newport with a great visitor center, lighthouse, birds. Going south, you don't see as much ocean from the road until you go a ways, but Shore Acres State Park is nice near Charleston, though off the beaten path a ways--or Bastendorff Beach County Park. Also south, near Reedsport is an elk viewing area. About 30 miles southwest is Sweet Creek which is a nice stroll along a creek for a mile, a popular place.
Our stay with wildcat was our best boondocker stay yet. She is exceptionally accommodating (we got WiFi and a plug in! Wow!), Nice to talk with, and her property is beautiful and quiet. The perfect spot to get away from the noise and enjoy rural Oregon on your way to Eugene or the coast. Thank you!
This spot could not have been better. Deep in the Douglas Fir forest. Hiking trail and a train going by. We really enjoyed ourselves.
We had two really great nights of much needed uninterrupted sleep at this spot in the woods. A convenient stop on our way west. Our host was friendly and welcoming. We would stay here again.
Being “out in the toolies” was truly magical. This property was right in the forest, nature has never been so profound as it was here. I’ve never been to a place where there was total silence, it was quite peaceful and would highly recommended visiting if you can. It may be a little off the main road but it is worth it. We had our big rig 30ft and had no issues getting in or out. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality, you have a gorgeous property. Hope to visit again!
