Quiet, forested south of Sherwood, OR. and west of Wilsonville. Taking the route from Wilsonville off I-5 is the best if arriving via I-5. If you've been visiting the wine country you might come through Sherwood. Check the best route on your GPS.
Smoking can be a hazard in the dry summer season.
More rules, perhaps as we gain experience with Boondockers.
Length of stay is negotiable.
If desired, a small motor home can be hooked to a15 amp outlet.
Dump is available, with easy access for small motor homes or for a guest with "backup"skills.
A couple of tight curves, depending on which route taken to get to us.
The electrical hookup is limited to one vehicle at this time.....it's near our house.
Upon entering our (500 ft long) driveway there are two large fir trees, or actually one tree and another large stump and a gradual incline.(We lost the one fir tree in a wind storm.....it had a rotted interior.)
In the summer we can accommodate several RVs and vehicles. Once the rains started and during the winter, the ground could be too soft for more than one of two vehicles.(You can check with us about conditions). I'm working on leveling and grading spots with gravel and a plastic "grid" system that should support most vehicles on the existing grass. Check with us before assuming space is available. Pictures to follow, on request. "Pull-Through" parking is possible. Check for availability.
Water can be made available as well as dumping tanks.
After August 15. Reservations accepted more than one month in advance, despite what previously indicated. We are flexible with regard to reservations.
Oregon Trail, Multnomah Falls, Wineries and tasting Rooms. Oregon Coast (two hour drive), Some hiking. Columbia Gorge (one hour drive)
We enjoyed the country life,quiet, peaceful,dark, a short trip outside of Portland and other great small towns. Enjoyed our talk.
Great location, fabulous hosts. We loved the pulled pork!
Bill and I had a good time puttering around his Mercedes sprinter by Leisure van. Just a "regular" and nice guy to chat with.
Wide open level space to setup and quiet...ok...Mr Rooster put his 2 cents in.
All the best Bill. Good travels.
Serenity at its finest, blissfully peaceful and most welcoming. For anyone wishing to escape the city, heal or wishing to reconnect to mother nature-you'll find Sherwood Forest to be most accommodating. we stayed two peaceful weeks at Sherwood exploring the local area and hiking the tree farm. Bring your camera and journal there is much to see and write about!
Upon our arrivel we were greeted by our host whom is one of the nicest people I have ever met. Bill assured our stay at Sherwood exceeded any and all expectations. Kind and considerate, knowledgeable and friendly he truly went out of his way to assist us from start to finish. If there was a way to rate our stay Bill would definitely receive the highest rating!
We look forward to visiting again next year..Thank you for such a blissful rest!
Great, peaceful and quiet location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with such a kind and generous boondocking host. We look forward to returning soon.
We were a bit concerned about this site due to comments let online about the difficulty of getting in. we have a 26 ft 5th wheel, towed by a Titan pickup, and while the turn in is tight, it is certainly doable. Our host was most accommodating, even getting his little tractor out to pull us when we got a bit stuck in the mud trying to turn around. Thoroughly enjoyed our interaction with our hosts, and will look to stay with them again.
We arrived in Portland for our grandsons soccer tournament without a lot of info. He was so friendly, helpful, and accommodating. He and his wife have a lovely acreage with the most beautiful trees and no road noise at all! We felt very safe there. Thank you for making us feel at home.
This boondocking location is a bit out of the way, but totally worth it once you get here. We have a 25' trailer with a truck. We feel that this was a little too big for these narrow roads. Very rural and private setting in a beautiful area. Our host could not have been more welcoming. He helped us back our trailer in and stopped to chat with us. We shared newbie RVer stories and commiserated about learning about the RV lifestyle. Unfortunately, we had trouble leaving the property due to the size of our trailer and sustained damage. We would totally recommend this Boondockers Welcome for smaller rigs.
Our host welcomed us with a smile and even offered us some local grown fruits. The pigs next door were fun for our daughter as well. Word of caution, I have a 33ft travel trailer, it was very tight getting in the driveway but the parking areas are nice once you get there!
Our stay at Sherwood Forest was relaxing and peaceful. The tall trees provided a sound barrier from most street noise and we enjoyed the soft sounds of nearby goats, pigs and horses from neighboring properties. The trees and hillsides blocked our cell service, so we had a truly “unplugged,” boondocking experience, and our view of the moon and stars was amazing! We had lovely conversations with our host, who so generously offered gifts from his garden. We hope to cross paths again with our friendly and outgoing host.
Wasn't sure what to expect as 1st time Boondockers Welcome folks, but Bill and his wife show notthing but kindness and warmth on their property. They showed my son their goats pigs and fish pond! Thank you!!!
We had a fabulous time with our hosts and enjoyed the seclusion from the city for a few days. We were grateful for the conversation, fresh flowers and veggies from the garden! We will definitely stay here again next time we are in the area.
Excellent hosts. They asked what we needed as soon as we pulled in, then helped us trim tree branches to clear the AC housing so we could back into the field. The roads out there are steep in some places, but we had no problems. The turn into the driveway is tight, but we just swung out wide and had no problems there either.
These hosts are very kind and we had à very interesting conversation with them.
The host was very helpful and I enjoyed my stay. Very quiet evening listening to the crickets. Will look forward to staying again. I recommend this host and their beautiful place.
