Baseball Field

LOCATION
28852 State Route WA-14, Prindle, WA

UPDATE: Thanks to Kasey we now have more information including pictures. According to her the baseball field is located on 28852 State Route WA-14, Prindle, WA.

Here is what Kasey had to say about it:

i spent 3 days researching and trying to find where the baseball field is and after an hour hike today I FOUND IT!!! It is near the address i posted above it’s hard to explain the exact route (picutres are to follow) but if you are on state route 14 theres a road across from the Skamania County Road Dept Prindle Shop ( the address is 28851 SR 14 Washougal WA) take that road (there are gates but me and my brother just bypassed them) and you’ll come to a railroad crossing; keep following that until a green gate comes (cross that) follow the road until a 3-way fork appears (take the right fork) and follow it. You’ll come to a very wide path; keep going until you hit the other end and you’ll walk right through to the field (you’ll know you are there cuz you’re across from the falls). The area is called the Shire set up by John Yeon and the roads are private property.

The site of the baseball field is 28852 State Route WA-14, Prindle, WA.
If you remember in the movie, the field was across from a set of falls, and in the director’s notebook catherine said they filmed across the river from Multnomah Falls and the address previously mentioned is directly across from multnomah falls

Thank you for the confirmation! Have you been there? I know a few people went before the movie came out that won’t confirm or deny where it is. And I’ve been told that property is owned by an Oregon University that rarely allows private tours. If you have any more info or pictures, please share!

Sounds like fun! Keep us posted.

Hey as of right now I am near Troutdale Oregon on day 6 of our trip. Bofre hand i spent 3 days researching and trying to find where the baseball field is and after an hour hike today I FOUND IT!!! It is near the address i posted above it’s hard to explain the exact route (picutres are to follow) but if you are on state route 14 theres a road across from the Skamania County Road Dept Prindle Shop ( the address is 28851 SR 14 Washougal WA) take that road (there are gates but me and my brother just bypassed them) and you’ll come to a railroad crossing; keep following that until a green gate comes (cross that) follow the road until a 3-way fork appears (take the right fork) and follow it.

Ooo! Very cool. Great info! Please email with pictures and stories of your trip and I’ll post them on the site. We all love to hear about fellow Twilight experiences.

Thank you so much for sharing!

thanks kasey! my friends and i just went to the 218 rim drive address during our trip out to oregon in september. when we got there, we knew it was the wrong one. there was a clearing but no view of the falls. we might need to do another trip to check out this one! btw, when u crossed/bypassed the gates, did u mean u did it by foot or did u have a car?

Me and my aunts live about 5 mins. away from there and have walked there and took pictures. ;)

Kasey March 5, 2010 at 11:45 pm

czarina; we walked into the clearing.

Kasey March 5, 2010 at 11:47 pm

glad this is helping people; it warms my little Twilighter heart :)

Kate March 8, 2010 at 5:37 pm

Hi Kasey,
Thanks so much for sharing. I’ll be visiting Oregon and Washington in late September and am definitely keen to track this location down. At what stage in your directions did you leave the car and start walking? Did you come across any other people while you were there?

Elise March 14, 2010 at 7:52 pm

Hi Kasey!
My husband and I are planning a trip up there to visit the sites in Sept or October….especially the Baseball Field, but we will traveling with our 2 year old daughter….well she’ll be 2 at the time of the vacation. Anyways, we were just wondering if the route you took to the Baseball field is difficult to get to, or would it be simple enough to get to with a small child? Also the gate as shown in the photo, were you able to bypass it by going around it or did it need to be jumped, just wondering as again we’ll be traveling with our 2 year old. Any help would be great! Thanks!

Tommy March 24, 2010 at 12:29 pm

Hello Kasey,
I am going to fly from Atlanta to take my daughter on a tour of all the Twilight filming locations. As others before me have asked, could you give exact detailed directions to the field. Such as the road across from the Prindle Shop, you mention taking that road and bypassing the gates. Is this by car or by walking. Then you come to the railroad crossing, keep following that untill a green gate comes…once again is this by car or by walking? I take it that you cross the railroad track on the same road that you started on. How far can you drive before walking? Does the road that you start on continue all the way to the 3-way fork?

Tommy March 24, 2010 at 1:07 pm

Hey Mia,
Since you live 5 minutes away from the field, would you be willing to give a tour for out of town visitorsfrom Atlanta? If you would be willing contact me at tommymckeehan@att.net

Christine April 6, 2010 at 10:35 pm

My friend and I walked this last Novemeber, and it’s not too far, although you are technically “trespassing.” We had to go around a gate and then climb over another fence. You could do it with a 2 year old if there were two of you helping each other (ie – passing the baby over the fence to each other). Be sure to wear good tennis shoes or even rainboots because it was pretty “sloshy” out there. It’s REALLY beautiful and our pics are awesome. I wish I would have walked further towards the edge. We didn’t want to spend too much time since it’s technically private property.

@Tommy – Feel free to email me and I can help answer some of your questions. We did the ENTIRE thing and are gearing up for a trip to Vancouver for a New Moon/Eclipse trip in August! :)

Baseball Field Directions (to the best of my memory)
Okay, here goes nothing. You are traveling east on State Route 14 and the address of the Skamania County Road Dept is: 28851 SR 14 Washougal WA. Find somewhere to pull off and park. Across from the Road Dept is a very small dirt road that needs to be walked because it is private property so there are a lot of locked gates (that you’ll most likely want to jump and not try to walk around as there are fences and huge black berry bushes with huge spines). Follow this path/rd and the next thing you will cross is a railroad; keep going. The next marker is a pond on your left and a little ways after that is a 3-way fork. You will want to take the right fork; follow this until you come into an area where the path (its not much of a path and it might be overgrown) “widens” a lot, keep going till you hit the other side and you should walk right into the baseball field. You’ll know you’re in the right place because Multnomah Falls will be right across the river form you. Keep in mind this is private property. Hope this helps and is easier to understand J. This brings back memories from my trip and I hope you guys have as much of a blast as I did!!

I just got back last night from a road trip to Forks and I actually met the owner of the “baseball field” by accident. It’s her backyard! She didn’t want to tell me how to get down to the field because she has a cabin in that area where according to her the “Cullens” stayed there while they were filming the baseball scene. The field is located in Forks and the lady’s address is 131 Bunker RD. She’s really nice and I’m sure if you ask her she will let you go into her backyard deck that overlooks the field. Multnomah falls was added to the movie to make it look like they’re next to each other but they’re really not. I have pictures but I don’t know how to post them on here.

heather July 14, 2010 at 2:47 am

What do we need to do to see the field with out getting arrested for trespassing? We are staying near by now and wonder if we can talk to someone to gain access.

Thanks,
Heather

Angela July 15, 2010 at 4:43 pm

Heather,
I don’t think there is a way to do so without knowing. I’m sure there will be some people who will be willing to do it anyway just to get there, but I do know there is a little pulloff spot about a mile away. As long as the workers across the street see you walk in, they won’t notice. If someone is on the road itself and tells you to turn around, try to give them your sob story. I think security there has been increased due to the violation by the damn partiers. My guess is that a bunch of high school graduates decided to throw a party there and trashed it. It was right around graduation time.

If you’re willing to walk the extra mile to the road itself along with the roughly mile or 2 hike down to the field without getting caught it’s so worth it. Beautiful.

Angela July 15, 2010 at 4:43 pm

Sorry, i meant as long as they don’t see you walk in.

Chris July 16, 2010 at 4:57 pm

Been looking at this location long and hard by satellite map on google maps. If you stopped further east on State Route 14, say 29884 SR-14, you could access the RR tracks there and then walk them west into the area. Be aware, though, that walking on RR tracks is also considered trespassing on the land owned by the RR. You could also conceivably cross the tracks at the location mentioned above further to the east and then go all the way to the shoreline, turn west and approach the field from the river. Best bet, though, would be to try and locate the owner and ask permission prior to visiting. Be straight forward and honest and see if the employees at the road dept. might share the phone number with you for the owner. Then post it for the rest of us… Assure them that if they are gracious enough to agree to allow visits to the site the millions of fans will definitely agree to treat their property with respect.

Cristy September 23, 2010 at 6:22 am

To Kasey or Angela or Mia, or anyone who can help:
We will try to visit the baseball field in a couple months (we are from Colorado). Our first attempt was back in May, but obviously didn’t get far since soon after we parked at a turnout (near 28552 Evergreen Hwy, Washougal, WA), a man with 2 dogs approached us and gave a threat that if we are going to that area, he would have to call the authorities due to some previous vandalism. Of course we mentioned nothing of Twilight, and stated we only wanted to capture a view of the waterfalls from the Washington side. So therefore, he suggested going to St. Cloud park a mile or so east down Hwy 14. Btw, there is nothing to see there (St. Cloud park) and we gave up since it started to rain. Looking back, we realized we parked at the worst possible place, since that man is on the lookout for visitors. He did say he does not want us to get arrested, hence his warning about the property being private. He seemed more like a local resident getting annoyed by the attention near his home. I can understand he doesn’t want to deal with the traffic and trespassing through his property. Mind you, we visited in May, and looks like Angela got the same old story in July 2010 (after our attempt). So anyway, don’t know how serious the guy is, but was wondering if any of you tried accessing the place by parking at the St. Cloud park area and head west. The shrubs looked dense so I’m not sure if anyone was able to get through along the river shoreline. Please advise. Kasey, where did you park or hike from since you mentioned it took you an hour to find?
Also, for anyone who plans on visiting the area: DO NOT make yourselves obvious. I think a parked car along Hwy 14 is a red flag. I just don’t want to ruin future possible Twilighter experiences. :)

Dana October 31, 2010 at 3:04 pm

My husband and I were able to find it in early September and it was wonderful. You need to be careful because the train tracks are busy at times and there is obviously no crossing signal. You also need to be able to climb a 5 foot farm gate after you cross the tracks. We walked for a while and I was beginning to think we wouldn’t find it…then I saw the light from the clearing, the falls across the river and Emmet’s climbing tree. I was so excited, I didn’t want to leave. Risk the ticket, it is worth it. We went on a Sunday when the business was closed across the street from the entrance.

Just visited the baseball field. Will post some photos in a few days.

Brianna August 27, 2011 at 1:28 am

We tried to check out this spot today, without much luck. There are now many, many “No Trespassing” signs up on the property. Even so, we bypassed them and hoped for the best. It was beautiful and the walk was easy. We made it past the RR track, past the fork in the road and were just about to round the last corner to what was obviously “the field” when we saw a truck. We then heard a tractor and realized by the grass pattern that the field was being mowed!

I don’t even jaywalk, and was already freaking out that we were doing something illegal. So when we saw that it was being mowed, we RAN. It was such a bummer- we were SO CLOSE! To leave without seeing it was a letdown. On the way out we realized we should have wondered why all the gates were wide open.

On the way back to Portland we went to Multnomah Halls and decided to hike up it. Imagine my happiness when I realized that the field is visable from the trail to the top of Multnomah Falls! Of course you are seeing it from a distance- but it was clear as day and I was so happy- after all the letdown- to at least see it from afar!

Bottom line- if trespassing isn’t your gig, try hiking the falls. Thank you so much for the instructions! Even if it didn’t turn out just right, at least we got to try.

Hi Brianna,

I am taking my daughter’s on a road trip next year and the baseball field is one spot she really wants to see (coming from Oklahoma and visiting lots of places). Can you give me specific directions on how to get there? Please email me: lpierce35@gmail.com Thanks Lori

Donna September 6, 2011 at 4:34 pm

The University does own the property and is part of their Agricultural Architecture program. The areas involve study and trespassers can ruin years of research in the fields, not only esthetically but research-wise. I tried to get permission, legally, even asking for someone to escort me or take pictures with my camera, but was denied for that reason. If you watch the movie again when Bella and Edward arrive at the baseball field in the Jeep, you’ll see deep ruts behind it from the tires. If that was my property or my study project, I’d be more than angry at the damage. Even walking in the area damages the site. Don’t risk prosecution for trespassing or a lawsuit for damages.

ashley wright December 4, 2011 at 5:06 am

It’s a privatly owned property and its worth well over $1 mill I have been going there for some time now n its my fave place in the world but don’t just go telling ppl where it is that’s messed up u shouldn’t go there unless u have permission u ppl r ruining.it by telling every one where it is!!!!!

Just wanted to update this post with a little more information. We were just there in September 2012. The info that Kasey gives is pretty spot on. We first tried cutting through some people’s yards. No way, it was covered in shrubbery. There was an older man and woman sitting outside so we just asked them info about it. They were very polite and told us how to get to the gate. (which is right off of Hwy 14) They did warn us that there might be a caretaker there that would “shoo us away”. We parked in the driveway of the gravel pit area that is right across from the gates and gravel road to the field. You cannot drive any further than Hwy 14, you have to walk from there. There were workers at the prindle shop but they didn’t pay much attention to us. We did have to cross through/over two different gates. And go across railroad tracks. There are “No Trespassing” and “Private Property” signs all over the place so you are definitely taking a risk of getting fined, etc by going in there. We were nervous wrecks the whole time. :) But we weren’t there to hurt anything, just take a couple of pictures and leave. The gravel road takes you all the way to the clearing, so just stay on it so you don’t disturb the area. You walk past a couple of ponds and some other small fields. Just keep going straight, following the main path and you will walk right out into the field. Just when we thought about turning back we walked a little further and there it was. You will know it is it because it is big with a tree in the middle of the clearing. And you will see the falls from the clearing. Like I said we were nervous wrecks so we took pics and got the h-e-double-l outta there! But looking back now I wish we would have spent more time there because there wasn’t a person in sight. It was early evening and I doubt anyone would have come along. The scene of Bella and Edward sitting on the rocks talking about Edward’s back story is along the river in that same location. But we were too nervous to walk that far to the river to see it. Wish we would have now though. Good luck to those venturing out to find it. Definitely worth the risk to see it! Just remember to respect the property…oh and wear hiking/tennis shoes. I wore flip flops and sliced my toe open on weeds! :)

Great directions…simply awesome!! Thanks so much for the info-never would have found it without it! :-) It was worth it!
