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.

    This spot is a great mid point to do day trips from. i went to the coast, to Crater lakes and saw some waterfalls. A nice find is Whistler’s Bend park, the day use area about 8 miles from the host spot. Nancy and i played several game nights which was fun. Highly recommend this spot!

    Janice and Dick were such a pleasure to meet. I don't if I'm allowed to say this, but our rig was a bit longer than they usually accept, but we're willing to extend a stay to us anyway. They have a wonderful set up with 30 amp hook up we took advantage of and we had plenty of room for our RV! Janice even checked in after departing and gave up some wonderful suggestions for our trip going forward. wonderful people and a wonderful spot!

    We spent two nights and cannot say enough great things about the location and the hosts. There is a dedicated level pad for parking with a 30 amp hookup and a picnic table. The property is lovely and so quiet! We had nice visits with the hosts and they gave us recommendations for some sights to visit including waterfalls and crater lake!

    Our hosts treated us like family, no better than that. They both went above and beyond what we expected and made our stay extreamly comfortable and enjoyable. We shared happy hours, meals and stories on the front porch and around the dining room table. Our spot was level, shaded and paved. They offered electricity and other amenities some of which we took advantage of. When it was time to leave, hugs all around and mention of future encounters. Our highest level of recomendation.

    Our first HH and we were so pleased with the accommodations! The hosts are truly super people and provided us with splendid hospitality. Very nice site, level, easy to get in and quiet. We much appreciated the free electric as we are both Veterans. Great place to stay on our way to Crater Lake. Wish we'd had another day there to explore the area. Next time!
