Misty Pines is on the Cowlitz River, not far from tge mighty Columbia. .in Lewis and Clark's journal, they wrote about a detour they made to an Indian fishing village where, they said, the fishing was the best in the world. As an aside, the bank is tricky in the summer, but if you can make your way down to the sand bar, you're welcome to get some smelt and/or Salmon.
The campsites are primitive, with access to cold running water at a spigot on the house. You'll be visited by my friendly chickens and the various raptors that live in my trees. Sometimes there are as many as six bald eagles at a time.
There is a concrete fire pit that I plan to put a grill on, and you can use the branches I've trimmed off my fruit trees to build a fire. I also plan to move a picnic table and umbrella down there. I plan to put camping fees into other improvements at some point.
My two dogs and two cats may visit you, too, but they are very well behaved. I'm currently looking into rescuing some lambs or goats to keep the underbrush and blackberries down.
The property is very rural, bug it's only three miles from downtown Kelso and five minutes from the Longview antique shops. There are supermarkets, various stores, two Walmarts, a Target, and even a mall - all within minutes.
It's the perfect central point for visiting Mt. St. Helens, the beach, Portland, and even Seattle. Plus we have our own farmer's market, and the fdmous Astoria Sunday market and artsy shops, cafes, and pubs are all within an hour.
