Our sugarbush — the maple farm — is located at historic Camp Colton, 45 minutes Southeast of Portland. In addition to elegant buildings, event spaces, art installations, and overnight lodging, Camp Colton offers 85 forested acres with trails along Canyon and Bee Creeks. Hundreds of Bigleaf Maples mingle with Fir and Cedar in this lush, Pacific Northwest ecosystem. Camp Colton is a privately owned, carefully tended property, which hosts multiple organizations and events. We ask that all visitors interested in touring the Oregon Maple Project please schedule in advance. To do so, inquire through our contact form, or sign up for our workshops, field trips, and volunteer opportunities.
Along the Northeastern edge of Camp Colton, beneath a maple-rich ridge, we have built our sugarhouse — a locally-milled timber frame that was generously donated by Hyla Huts and raised by many helpful hands. We give thanks to everyone who contributed time, materials, dollars, labor, and love to this project. The sugarhouse is the center of Oregon Maple Project activities. It shelters our evaporator and other essential maple sugaring equipment, while simultaneously serving as a classroom and community gathering space.
