Willow Creek Retreat is a private nature retreat situated on a farmstead on the West Plains of Spokane County, conveniently located 5 minutes from the Spokane International Airport. Situated on 20 acres with abundant trees and a year round creek dappled with wildflowers. Boasting shaded camp sites, abundant bird songs and bird watching opportunities including blue heron, hawks, great horned owl, quail, ducks, turkeys, pheasants, and creek full of frogs for the kids to catch and friendly horses to watch. Each evening, listen to the coyotes howl, the owls hoot, crickets chirp, frogs croak (in spring/early summer) and the gentle ambling of the occasional short train that crosses the track on the nearby spur. Willow Creek Retreat is a great place for a camp reunion, families wanting to get their kids into nature, fall bird hunting or a romantic country get away.

Fantastic Weekend
What a beautiful, peaceful and serene location. We had a fantastic weekend testing out our new camper. Everything was so easy. The property is beautiful and well-maintained. Rachel is a fantastic host. Not only was it great being able to see the horses, we certainly enjoyed being able to let our dogs off leash. They are well behaved and had a great time spending the weekend not being confined on a leash. Others in the camper very kind. Rachel has taken some land and repurposed it into a beautiful camping location. I’m excited to see what she does in the future.

Pastoral setting
We liked this quiet place. Our neighbors were mostly cows and a couple of horses. The host came by and we had a friendly chat. We had no trouble locating the place based on the directions. Our trailer had water. There was a portable toilet and 30 Amp service was provided.

Perfect break from city noise.
The place is perfect to calm your body and mind. Lurkey the turkey was the most fun part that I would remember for years to come.

Loved my stay!
Such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. The sites are all really well spaced and clean. Loved the shade from the trees along the creek too. The hosts are great people! If you plan on staying a few days be sure to bring a very long hose or a container that you can fill and then add to your tank that way. I had over a hundred feet but it didn't reach from site 3.

Super well kept campsites
This is the cleanest hipcamp we have ever stayed at. You can tell that the owners take pride in their property. The whole site is grass and there are shade trees, picnic tables, and even an outdoor shower. Its close to Spokane, but away enough to be quiet and peaceful.

This was a beautiful place tucked away from the hustle and bustle of town. It was well kept, and I loved that you could interact with the animals. Rachel was friendly and very welcoming. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful property with plenty of room at each site and the willows provide plenty of shade in the evening. Rachael was a friendly host and directions were clear and her communication was great.

Grass field, nothing special
Value for money really not there. It’s nothing more than a big grass field. Close to roads and noise, especially with other people coming in late and have to set up their space without light and directions. No safe drinking water either. For this kind of money you can find better places that have a few more facilities to offer or a better view.

Basic Site with 30 amp RV Hookup
It’s was very peaceful. We were there for a soccer tournament and camped with some friends. The horses and cows were fun to watch. Rachael and her husband were very friendly, nice and very accommodating. The only thing that my daughter had a problem with is the earwigs. Haha Mother Nature. All and all it was a very good adventure!!

Rachael is an awesome host. Location is very clean and a friendly environment. Highly recommend this spot if you are visiting the Spokane area. Awesome to wake up to see horses, chickens, cows and dogs living the county life.

Two days of camping at Willow Creek
I enjoyed camping with my tent at Willow Creek Resort. It is lovely there. I loved hearing and seeing the animals on her farm. Its clean and well taken care of. Rachael is friendly and helpful. I enjoyed our interactions. You can hear revelry from the air-force base near by. I thought this to be very cool It was at a reasonable hour both morning and night. Was not disturbing at all. Only heard the train once during the day and that also felt like it belonged. I was the first camper with my horse. Racheal helped me get water to my horses pen and checked with us frequently to see if everything was working for us. I would be honored to have Racheal as a friend if I lived near her.

The perfect mix of sun and shade.
Rachael has a sweet spot to share with travelers. Mine was #1, just as you drive onto the property. Very generously sized, under a beautiful tree with lovely shade, and next to a small creek which is the watering hole for Rachael’s small herd of inquisitive cattle and horses. I was glad I had my noise cancelling headphones. The nearby “choo-choo” train was hardly noticed.

One of the best
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a 30 amp hook up and we’re able to get our pull-behind trailer level even while attached to our car. Plenty of grass to drive on. Rachael has done a lot of work to make this a nice experience for everybody. There are little trees planted , very clean Porta potty‘s, and we got to say hello to an old horse who roams the property. Very nice horsey! Be sure to follow her directions and not GPS. The property was very well-kept, the grass was mowed, and we were lucky enough to stay there on a beautiful blue sky day. We were the only campers there last night and we couldn’t see the main house from where we were. It felt very private and secluded. It’s near an Air Force Base and planes take off during the day but not at night. Still, the noise wasn’t intrusive. Unless you have a very long hose you won’t be able to connect to water, but you can haul it from the spicket attached to the outdoor shower. We just came in with our own water. This was one of our favorite Hipcamps so far, and we’ve been on the road a year and I’ve stayed in many.

Friendly owners and other campers
Rachael again had the place looking great. Very welcoming and relaxing. Just what we were looking for after a 650 mile drive from Montana. This time we got to meet Charlie and her siblings: another dog and a couple of friendly cats. Also got to spend some time talking with her husband, and I apologize but cannot remember his name. Also cannot remember the names of the 5 or 6 cows that roam the other side of the creek we were camping next to. Other campers were there and all were very nice, with one of them by himself touring around, up from Louisiana. Good guy. I wish him well.

Glamping on the Farmstead
Rustic Glamping Paradise!
Rachael's land was beyond beautiful, and in every direction was a breathtaking view or a quaint farm scene to gawp over. The trailer itself was well decorated, clean, and warm with plenty of options for ventilation. I recommend bringing a fan in the warmer months, but that is all you have to bring- quilts, pillows, water bottles, bug spray, and even cooking utensils, plates, cups, and a propane stove were all available. The firewood option meant limited supply from a huge stock which meant we were able to enjoy the firepit all evening long. There was a hammock we were encouraged to use as the attached site was vacant and the antique commode was perfect for a late-night potty without having to cross the land to the portapotties. We would stay here again and again- she was even forgiving about our often yappy Chihuahuas (even when one of ours chased after her adorable hound dog)! The bunk bed option was perfect for a mother-daughter glamping trip and the outlets and electricity in the trailer were much appreciated. Perfect cell signal out there as well, making the lack of wi-fi a perk as opposed to a handicap. I hope we can stay there again next Summer!

Great place to chill.
Great place to relax and chill. Rachael is a great host. A horse may come across the bridge to eat the clover occasionally. RV site 1 and 3 are the best for shade. We had site 3. Add benefit if you like watching planes you are right by FAFB and SIA to the south.

Beautiful grounds. Rachel was super friendly and welcoming. A few mosquitos in the evening but not so terrible. Love that it was so dog friendly - we have a Malinois and it was perfect for him to run off roadtrip steam. Dog loved the ditch for keeping cool and we enjoyed the hose shower - horse trough 'pool' was very clean and inviting. Horses were very close and no fence - wasn't at all a problem for us and we enjoyed their proximity, but do heed the recall part for off-leash dog safety (host was super chill about our dog and indeed her hound dog was friendly and non intrusive)
