About
Embark on a unique RV camping adventure where history meets harvest on a renowned hay-producing farm that's been thriving since the days of the Manhattan Project. Mere moments from stunning cliffside views of the Columbia River, RV campers can immerse themselves in the heartland of agricultural richness and ingenuity. As you drive your RV through the gates, you'll be greeted by the legacy of WWII veterans who transformed desert into verdant fields. Today, Nancy Clark and her combat veteran son Tony Zilar steward these lands with love, ensuring each blade of alfalfa hay reaches its prime quality. Here, you can engage with three generations of a family dedicated to excellence in forage crop production. Imagine taking a leisurely stroll to the White Bluffs, where the breathtaking panorama of the Columbia River unfolds beneath you, promising serene evenings with sunsets that paint the sky above the Hanford Site and Rattle Snake Mountain range. While the farm's history whispers stories of the past, the modern marvel of irrigation pivot systems showcases the innovation still alive and well on these grounds. Curious guests are warmly invited to delve into the intricacies of alfalfa hay harvesting. Tony and Elle are your gracious hosts, offering a rare glimpse into the swathing process during the peak of harvest season. They welcome inquiries from all who wish to learn and are ever-ready to demonstrate the craftsmanship that goes into cultivating their highly-regarded crops. This is not merely a place to park your RV for the night; it's a chance to connect with the land and appreciate the dedication it takes to sustainably feed nations. Whether you're seeking a hands-on farm experience, eager to learn about agricultural practices, or simply in pursuit of tranquility and a spectacular sunset, this family-owned farm offers an RV camping escapade that marries simplicity with splendor.

House Rules
Keep in mind we are a working farm. If we are making loud noises with machinery late at night or early in the morning, it's because we have to. If we put up a lot of dust, it's an unavoidable part of what we do. Do not approach any equipment while it is in operation. Always keep in mind you can see us much better than we can see you. We have numerous controls, monitors, sites and sounds to focus our attention upon while operating our equipment. Please do not complicate our activities or compromise your safety by getting too close to the farming operations. The stairs/ladders on the grain elevator and grain bins are completely off limits. The shops are also off limits. Do not wander onto neighboring farms or farmland.
Items to Purchase
NLC Farm shirts, hats, hoodies, and hay bales are available for sale.
