Welcome to our property that sits below the Goldendale Observatory. In fact, there are hiking trails right behind (to the east) our property that will take you right up to the State Park. From April to September, the Observatory is open Thursday-Sunday from 3pm-5pm for the Solar Show and from 9pm-Midnight for the Evening Show. More information is on their website or through Washington State Parks website. My dream at 8 years of age was to have my horse in my own backyard. This dream finally came true when we moved out to Central Washington in 2017. We have bunnies, chickens, ducks, two goats, sheep, a couple of Scottish Highlanders and, of course, my horse Tigger. We are just on the outskirts of town and on the West side of Observatory Hill. We have the ONLY public observatory in the Pacific Northwest. It was built in 1973 and recently received a major renovation. Both our town and our county have light ordinances aimed at protecting the dark sky that have been in place since the early 1980s. Seeing all of the stars, and many times planets, are just breathtaking. If it's a full moon night or even nearly full moon, it lights up the sky. We love our little oasis, and we'd love to share it with others. As a friendly reminder, if you bring your vehicle onto our property it could be scratched from hooves or horns. The animals are curious and will what to checkout the new things in their pasture.

The property is secluded and great star gazing. Animals abound and the port-a-potty was clean. Particularly enjoyed meeting Sarah’s 12wk old goat, seeing her community of animals, and learning about her homestead. Sarah was very helpful in navigating us to her property and a wonderful host.

Perfect location, cute animals
We needed a place to stay so that we could go to the late night show at the observatory. Sarah’s property was perfectly located just a few minutes drive from the observatory. She was incredibly gracious and we loved meeting all of her four-legged friends! The spot where we camped was also perfect for continuing our star gazing after the show. I would definitely stay again!

Sarah is very kind and welcoming. This was an amazing experience for our 3 year old. The location is central to many outdoor activities. Incredible stargazing too.

The rustic cabin was just perfect for our needs. One of the cats even tried to make himself a home with us, which we loved. Waking up to goats outside grazing was definitely a treat.

Farm land Camping 🏕 🐂🐐🦝
Sarah was a wonderful host who went above and beyond. This was a unique camping experience our whole family enjoyed. Our kids loved hanging with the goats and our animal loving daughter was already begging to go back the second we left.

Peaceful Cabin Getaway
The hosts here were helpful making sure we had a good stay. The property is peaceful and beautiful. We loved the cabin. It was clean, and simple, yet comfortable. The comfortable cots made for a solid nights sleep. We plan to stay here again for a good night sky viewing experience just up the hill at the Goldendale Observatory. And should it be a cloudy night, We will instead enjoy the cabin and rejuvenated vibrant downtown of Goldendale. Awesome overnight stay no matter.

Camping with animals in Goldendale
A charming campsite where farm field meets Scrub Oak and Pine forest. It’s perfect for adventurous campers who enjoy the presence of animals and respect farm life. Hosts are kind, helpful, and informative, sharing advice and details about services and activities in Goldendale and Klickitat County. Because the campsite is settled near the base of the Observatory Drive, it makes for a great place for visitors to extend their stargazing experience after a late night Observatory show!

I had a great experience at Dream acres! The little cabin was just perfect for me for the week I was in Beautiful Goldendale. The cabin is simple and rustic but had everything I needed for a pleasant stay. The host Sarah was lovely and was easy to work with from beginning to end. I loves being around the all the cattle and enjoyed the sunsets on the front porch. Easy access to downtown and far enough out to enjoy the beautiful countryside. I look forward to staying there again in the future!

The cabin on Sarah's land was just right for me and my folks! There was more in the cabin than listed (cushions for the wood bed, 2 chairs and a table, 5 gal jug of water was already at the cabin for us). It was a warm day, but opening the windows cooled off the space just right. The sofa/bed opened up to sleep my folks and I slept up in the loft area. Sarah's husband met us to get us settled in and we hung out near the animals before heading over to the Goldendale Observatory only a few minutes away which was super convenient, especially not having to drive far to come "home" when we came back after the show ended at midnight. I'd recommend bringing a flashlight/lantern for the walk to the bathroom at night, but we had brought our own travel potty so it wasn't a problem.

This place is a must stop on your way to Seattle. Bucolic, serene, clean, and lots of animals. The owners couldn’t have been nicer and greet me when I arrived. Their camping sites are phenomenal.

Sarah welcomed us with a friendly smile, an adorable baby goat, and a thorough description of her property. Very quiet and beautiful spot to camp the night.

Peaceful & Convenient
We were greeted immediately upon our arrival and the location was great -- quite beautiful! We really enjoyed meeting all the animals. The goats were especially friendly, especially when we were eating, but they could be shooed away. Morning deer were an added bonus. The purpose of our trip was to visit the Goldendale Observatory State Park. This campground was only about 4 minutes away, which made it super convenient. We chose the Oak Grove campsite, which is at the far end of the pasture from the driveway. The walk was about 400 meters, but it's flat and the host provides wheel barrels to make schlepping your gear there a piece of cake.

Skygazers delight! Plus goats!
This place is a trip! Sarah is an incredible Host, so responsive, friendly and accomodating. We LOVE her animals!!! We weren’t able to stay because the fire smoke obscured our view (totally not any fault of the host or campsite obviously) but sarah was super gracious, we came and ate dinner, giggled at her adorable goats who were the cuddliest puppies ever! And then got a rain check for another time in the fall for sky viewing. Great property, so close to the observatory well be back!

So peaceful and lovely. Sarah couldn’t be friendlier and more hospitable. I loved spending the night amongst her many animals. Site #2 is awesome for tent or van camping. It was real windy the night I arrived so i slept in my van. Even got to enjoy Goldendale’s Saturday am farmers market on my way east. Thank you, Sarah!!!

Sarah & family (including the non humans) were very welcoming. I was looking for a base camp to explore local trails and this was a good location. Our stay was cut short due to high winds causing dust to coat the interior of our tent. Not at all the hosts fault but a bummer none the less. Animals are super friendly and inquisitive. Ask for tips on interactions. Another good tip is to bring a water container, as no spigot close to tent area. (Sarah kindly shared a 5 gal container with us) Porta potty was clean and well stocked with TP and hand sanitizer. Sarah went above and beyond when she delivered back to us a favorite water bottle - luckily she had plans near us and was super kind to bring to our doorstep. Lovely family and lovely area.

Fun stay:)
The location and experience were lovely! We had a great time at Dream Acres during our 2-night stay. The grove of trees provided the perfect shade and right amount of privacy. We love the goats especially! Such friendly creatures. Sarah is a wonderful host and we enjoyed hearing about the animals and her suggestions for hiking nearby.

Great place to stay with kids!
We had a great stay at Sarah's place. She was very friendly and helpful and my 4 year old grandson loved the animals, especially the goats! It was quiet and the stars were stunning. It's a very short drive to Stonehenge and the Maryhill Museum which was fascinating. I highly recommend Dream Acres Homestead. Thank you Sarah, for a lovely time!

Amazing experience. The Pasture and oak grove hillside provided a relaxing joyous night with many birds. We became friends with the horse, goats, mama sheep and two ox that were super sweet. Hosts were polite and helpful. Outhouse was clean and upkept. If you are tent camping you must feel comfortable with farm animals and their close proximity otherwise I would not recommend it. Close to town and not far from Mount Adams as the mountain views silhouette the city. Would stay again!

Sarah was a great host and the animals were very welcoming! I've never camped in a pasture full of farm animals before so it was a neat new experience. Plenty of shade during hot days and starry skies at night. Easy drive to lots of parks, trails, and the river.

Sarah is lovely and her farm was the perfect place to park our camper van and hike and hang out with her sweet menagerie of animals for a couple days. She had pitable water available and was super responsive when we needed her.

We loved our stay in our camper van at Dream Acres! Sarah was so nice and helpful and gave us a chance to visit with all her animals which was a special treat! They are so friendly and gentle! It’s a beautiful property with lots of space and no neighbors to be seen in two directions! We will definitely come back again if in the area!
