This is a gorgeous park-like campground. Beautiful view of the mountains and forests here in western Washington. We are close to Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier and several lakes. There are walking trails all around the site. Picnic table and fire pit with grate supplied. Many trails have a view of the Tilton River, which can be reached via a challenging 3/4 mile trail. Sites

What a wonderful experience we had camping here. From the moment you drive on the property, you feel relaxed and welcome. Everything is clean and well maintained. The same goes for the sites which provide a wonderful sense of privacy. We'll certainly be returning here again in the future.
Another great time at the arboretum
As always, Barb & Terry are fantastic hosts. They have increased their sites from 4 to 8 and sites are very spacious and very well manicured. You know other people are there but you can't really see the other sites, so your privacy is very much intact.
Barb has an art gallery at the barn you check in at and she is an accomplished artist. We have purchased 3 of her prints so far. I'm sure we will have more on the coming years.
I can't say enough about The Arboretum. It's quiet & relaxing and an amazing place.
Grassy flat beauty
Flat, grassy, big sites. Beautiful views of the mountains. Hosts are kind and very organized. Other sites are visible through the trees, but far enough away that you feel secluded.
Mountain artist beauty
Such a spectacular hidden gem! So beautiful, well kept, kind and friendly hosts. Each camping location is private from your neighbors, and the Mountain View’s are amazing. I also just fell in love with Barb’s art gallery. Will be back soon!
Private, peaceful, clean.
We stayed at the brown site for three nights and are thinking of booking another trip this summer. Like all the other reviews mention, the hosts are so kind and have tons of info on local places to check out (but at the same time give you space), the grounds and views are lovely, and the grass at the sites was aaaamazing. We loved it so much we laid out in the grass and played scrabble one evening until the sun went down and we stayed out to look at stars. It’s just an impeccably landscaped, clean, peaceful and overall a wonderful camp spot. There’s a surprising amount of privacy at this location with lots of visual tree barriers between sites which double for shade and the sites are well spaced. Would recommend to a friend and will definitely go again.
