From helping out on cattle drive in the open plains to horseback riding through the high dessert hills of Eastern Orgeon, getting in touch with nature and admiring the stunning scenery is unavoidable in this rural oasis. Apart from getting a feel for ranch life by helping complete the daily chores of a cattle ranch, glampers can explore the extensive grounds by cycling and hiking through the rugged terrain. With spectacular views of the juniper and sage covered dessert, guests are sure to spot various animals in their natural habitat making for fantastic photographs.

Taking a sunset horseback ride is the best way to take in the breathtaking sights of the surrounding area, including Cascade Mountain Range, as well as Mt. Hood. Glampers will be awe-inspired as the sky changes to hues of pink and orange as they take in the spectacular views.

For guests who want to venture off the property, the John Day Fossil Beds National monument is about an hour away. Comprised of Clarno, Painted Hills, and Sheep Rock and spread out across a sprawling 19,000 acres, this national treasure conserves the past 55 million years of Earth’s geology, paleontology, and climate. When at the Sheep Rock, glampers can visit the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center, which showcases different fossils, as well as replicas of animals and plants from long ago. There are even exhibits for children to learn about the Earth’s history through time.
