Special Events Grounds

Tired Dog Ranch can accommodate retreats, large groups of campers, seminars, team building, workshops, weddings, and other special events. Surrounded by the Willamette National Forest, our large meadows and well-groomed lawns, plus comfortable cabins, are perfect for your special events, youth camp, festivals, and group camping. You can combine both camping and the three rental cabins to rent the entire grounds.


We have a traditional long house with its heavy beams and the sounds of Gray Creek in your ears. It is covered, has electricity, and a sweet little private lawn in front. We can help you arrange for catering and other rentals to make it the perfect, nature loving wedding spot. Or choose the upper meadow, with its wide open spaces, surrounded by forest, and kitchen area. And of course, the newliweds can stay in one of the three rental cabins, which we will romantically decorate for a most memorable honeymoon nest. In fact, we can accommodate a number of your wedding party!

Seminars, Team Building, Clinics, Retreats, Festival Site

We have our large meadow, and two other pastures that can be used for parking, camping, and events and festivals of less than 1000 people. We can help with security workers, parking attendants, set up an admissions booth, a stage, signage, even a page on our website - to help you carry off a successful event. For such large events that need a lot of planning, be sure to give us plenty of notice so we can help make everything perfect with no glitches.

In the middle of the upper meadow is a fire pit with plenty of firewood. Lay beneath the stars and make a wish when one falls. The camp area is pretty sweet and will be a nice place for your next event.

We have a covered outdoor kitchen with frig, propane stove, and dishwashing station. There is a partitioned, private shower area with solar heated water (which is cool if there is no sun, of course). Various composting toilets take care of your elimination needs. The area can hold a hundred tents easily, and camping can be extended to one of the other pastures.

If you want, we can provide meals too, catering to the vegetarian or omnivorous diet. Prices for catering vary according to your needs, so contact us and we will give you a quote.
