Overview -Tree Camping at Silver Falls State Park
Our half-day tree climbing adventures are amazing and unforgettable like people say in our Five-Star reviews, but tree camping is on an entirely different level. Once you experience this adventure you will understand the rave reviews of our experiences and why tree camping probably deserves the creation of a sixth star. After about 1.5 hours of climbing/rappelling training and practice you will hike into an ancient forest for about 45m. Once we reach the secluded tree it will take around 1-2 hrs of climbing ropes and branches, to reach the top of these huge old-growth trees. Participants will get to choose their sleeping spot, and help set up their own tree camping equipment with their guides' help. Once participants are all settled in and cozy, you get to relax and enjoy the views! If you select the add-on dinner and breakfast option, you also get to see some crazy cool, should-be award winning, food preparation techniques. After enjoying the sunset and night sky experience, it's time to get comfy for one of the most unique sleeping situations. Around 7am we will wake up and start hiking back to the original meeting location. Camping overnight in some of the largest trees in the world will be one of the most unique experiences in your life.
A Whole New World
From a 300 ft (90 meters) high tree, the world looks very different, like an alien planet. The perspective from some of the largest trees in the world, will open your eyes to see the forest and wildlife in new powerful ways. This is your chance to experience something that almost nobody else has done before, less than .00001% of the population will have experienced this.
Magical Views, Sunset and Sunrise
At the top of the forest canopy, imagine a 360 degree view overlooking the Willamette Valley and Cascades. From this high vantage point you can watch the sunset over the western mountains, turn your head in the morning and watch the sunrise over the eastern mountains. It's honestly going to be so gorgeous, it might be hard to sleep with views like these. But eventually the subtle sway of the tree will rock you to bed.
Dark Sky Experience, Star Viewing Adventure
Do you like dark sky adventures and night sky experiences with a lot of stars? If so, tree camping is definitely for you because you are going to see a lot of stars! Unless it's going to rain, you will have an open tent (portaledge) or hammock to watch the dreamy stars all night long. After watching a sunset, the stars will only increase in number dramatically. This is a dark sky climbing experience that has the best combination of what some people call forest star bathing.
Sunset Dinner and Sunrise Breakfast Option
Want an incredible dining experience? Curious how you would cook a meal at the top of a giant tree or how they do it on the side of a cliff while rock climbing? Well don’t wait any longer to find out! Enjoy a hot meal while watching the sunset at the top of a giant 300 ft' tree! Trust us, this is a truly magical sunset dining experience that eventually turns into a night sky dinner too! You won't be able to find another dining venue like this. This is an add-on that costs $30 extra per person.
A Forest Opportunity Like Nothing Else
There are few experiences more connected to nature than tree camping in an old-growth tree. You and the gigantic ancient living tree will be connected together overnight. You will get to feel its subtle movements, and experience a day of what it's like to be a tree. It will hold your life, all night long and it’s kind of like being held by 400 year old mother-nature and getting rocked to bed by her gentle embrace as the tree sways in the wind. Getting to spend the night in such a unique place allows a certain level of mindfulness in nurture and forest bathing that you cannot experience anywhere else.
Ecotour of the Ecology of Ancient Old-Growth Forest
In the continental United States most of our original forests are gone. It is estimated that we only have 5% or less of our old-growth forests, maybe even as little as 1%. While we are up in the canopy, we are excited to share with you the unique ecology of old-growth trees, plants, and wildlife that depend on this kind of environment. Old-growth forests play a critical role in Earth’s ecology that make it necessary to protect and promote the growth of new old-growth forests for future generations.
