We have five flat acres in the small town of Glide and are easily accessible. We are 18 miles east of Roseburg off the scenic Umpqua highway that goes to Diamond Lake and Crater Lake. You will take Highway 138 east from Roseburg for about 16 miles, and we are two miles off the highway on a paved road. We have had an RV pad put in made of compacted rock and added a 30-amp electrical hookup. You will need to arrive in daylight! We feel best positioned to accommodate motor homes or truck campers but have had a few SMALL travel trailers (under 25 feet) with no issues. We don't feel our location is suitable for large trailers or fifth wheels due to the sharpness of the turn back onto the driveway. We had the pad designed so that you will pull in forward for the best view from your patio, with the electric box on the driver's side. You can unhook your tow car once you get onto our long driveway and then position your rig. When leaving, you will need to back out and position your rig toward the driveway and then hook your car up. There should be plenty of room. If you have satellite TV, you should find good access to the signal. We also have good cell service here. We have recently changed our listing to indicate we can accommodate two rigs. We will see how it goes. One would be on the crushed rock pad and the other on asphalt in front of our RV barn. There is a 50-amp outlet on the side of the barn. We can provide an adapter and/or extension cord if needed. This area is not as level as the pad. But if there are two of you traveling together or guests overlap, I'm sure we can make it work. Goodness knows we have the space! We are on a well and a septic system and cannot offer you water or dumping facilities. If you need to dump, you can do it at the Douglas County Fairgrounds at the south end of Roseburg right off of I-5. Their dump is easily accessible, and we understand the current fee is $10. They have potable water as well. I believe you can also dump at Love's travel stop at the south end of Roseburg where there is no fee but also no water. Propane is available at the Chevron station in Glide. There's also a Dollar General in Glide for your last-minute needs. Suggested Local Attractions: We are 65.8 miles from Diamond Lake and 73 miles from Crater Lake, which is just beyond Diamond Lake. You could make a nice scenic day trip to either of those in your tow vehicle without having to drive your rig any farther up the highway. There are several beautiful waterfalls on the way up there as well. We don't fish, but that's one of the biggest attractions of the area! You will be two miiles from the North Umpqua River. There are also lots of nice wineries in Roseburg, as well as grocery stores, Walmart and Costco for stocking up! Glide does have a couple of great little eating places as well as a Chevron station that sells propane.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We are easily accessible. There is a very short dirt road between the paved street and our paved driveway. Everything is flat. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: There is plenty of parking for a tow vehicle near the rig. It will have to be unhooked before parking the rig, but there is room on our property to do that.

Retired RV-ing couple loving Oregon Details: We retired and moved from California in 2016 to a five-acre property in southern Oregon. Dick was a business owner, and I was a secretary. We love it here and would like to share our scenic little piece of the world. We belong to a local FMCA chapter. Home Town: We have been in Glide, Oregon since 2016. Before that, Janice lived in Anaheim, California, her entire life, and Dick grew up in Beverly, Massachusetts. He came to California in the Marine Corps in 1962 and stayed. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We haven't boondocked much yet! Skills or Expertise to Share: We have been motor-homing since 1989 and might have accumulated some knowledge!

    A beautiful property with a paved RV pad and 30 amp electric! Easy to get to off of Hwy 138 from Roseburg. Don’t take N Bank Rd from Wilbur unless you want to see tons of deer and go the scenic but slow and scary route. This was a great location for a day trip to Crater Lake. The Rogue Umpqua Scenic drive has a lot of hikes and waterfalls along the way. We also had a nice dinner at the Diamond Lake Resort.

    It was a wonderful experience to camp at Umpqua Paradise. Dick and Janice were incredible people to meet and talk with. The area is beautiful and we spent every day exploring the area and enjoying beauty of the area. Knowing our camper and things were safe at their place was a great comfort knowing we could be gone all day. We brought a KFC meal with us to share with them the first night. We were invited in to share dinner and talk. We enjoyed their company so much we plan to return again in the future. It was our first experience using Harvest Host camping and we couldn't have had a better experience. We discovered using my phone as a hotspot we could get Wifi in the camper and were able to watch tv each evening.

    Paradise is right! Janice, and Dick greeted us warmly, and helped us get parked. When we were set up , they invited us to share their front porch, and amazing view for happy hour, and great conversation. Such a peaceful, and relaxing evening, and 30 amp electric was an added bonus. Highly recommended stay on the way to Crater lake.
