20 acres of private, secluded and mostly undeveloped land at the head of the Skokomish Valley near Hood Canal, Washington. The land straddles the South Fork Skokomish River and is bordered by timber company land that is open for day use. The boundary of the Olympic National Forest is 3/4 miles away and the Staircase entrance to Olympic National Park is nearby. The river, while not very deep, is a great place to cool off on a hot summer day. One can hike up the river into the canyon coming out of the Olympic Mountains and the National Forest as far as one would want to go and then float back down in an inner tube. There is an eighteen hole disc golf course on the property. Right now there are several primitive campsites scattered around the property, four have fire rings and one has a picnic table. Drinking water is available but no shower facilities. There is a state park about ten miles away with a campground so there are showers there. Port-a-potties will be on site as needed.
The land was homesteaded in the early 1900's and farmed with horses into the 1960's. I bought my portion of the farm in 1989 and have used it mainly recreationally ever since. I've always enjoyed sharing my property with my friends and neighbors for camping, swimming and frisbee golf.
