Thanks for a great season, Hipcampers! We are closed until May 2023 and are not currently accepting bookings.

--------

The Farm on Van Wyck is an 80 acre property that has been in the family since the 1950's. Half hay field and half forest, the land offers campers endless options for camping and exploring. While campers can see few houses in the distance, they are mainly surrounded by tall trees and wide open spaces. The Farm is a 10 minute drive from downtown Bellingham, Lake Whatcom, and several hiking/biking trails, 5 minutes from a quiet fishing lake, and only 2 minutes off of Mt. Baker Highway. It's a great place if you'd like to feel secluded or "off the grid", but still close to town and lots of recreation! We are open seasonally, from the end of May through the end of September. 

--------

There are FIVE campsites on The Farm: three tent sites, one RV site, and one glamping site. This listing is for one of our three tent sites described below: 

Tent Site 1 - Our smallest tent site. Located in the lower field nestled against the woods. Suitable for tent campers or car campers only. Maximum of one vehicle and two adults (one tent). 

Tent Site 2 - Our largest tent site, perfect for small groups. Located in the lower field against the woods. Suitable for tent campers only. Maximum of two vehicles and six adults (2-3 tents). 

Tent Site 3 - Our most remote tent site. Located in the furthest corner of the lower field, nestled against the woods. Suitable for tent campers only. Maximum of one vehicle and four adults (two tents).

All campers have access to a communal covered space, which has picnic tables for dining, drinking water, porta potties, and a handwashing station. This area is located by the entrance of the property, right next to the RV campsite and about a 5 minute walk from the tent sites and glamping site.

You can find our other listings by searching "The Farm on Van Wyck Glamping Site" and "The Farm on Van Wyck RV Site". 

*Vehicles with 4WD are recommended if there has been heavy rain recently. 

**The field is hayed each year in late July. Before then, you can expect to be surrounded by long hay up to about 4 feet tall. We keep all campsites and the road  mowed short throughout the camping season.

Excellent location and hosts! I have camped in many locations around the Pacific Northwest but this is a Bellingham gem. Thank you, Taylor!

It was so quiet. It was really relaxing and it was fun hearing the sounds from the different animals near by, cows, sheep, roosters, and coyotes I think! It’s not that far from town but you wouldn’t know it out there. The property is really pretty and the sun makes everything glow. It was such a nice break.

The Farm was lovely. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the short trails to walk on. We liked the privacy of the sites and how big they were. The only thing that I can think of that would improve the sites would be having a little bit more flat ground. Thanks for a great spot!!

Taylor was an excellent host! She has great signage and our spot was more than we expected space wise. Clean and well prepared facilities and easily accessible to Bellingham! There was a ton of blackberries too! Would stay here again! Thanks for the stay!

I was looking for a quiet place to sleep on a four day bike trip on the roads around Bellingham and that is exactly what I got. So peaceful. And I enjoyed the hooting owls, howling coyotes, and the occasional moo from next door. I enjoyed tent site 3 as it seemed the most secluded. Thank you!

I loved camping at the farm! I would prefer it to a regular campsight. The field is beautiful, it looks like a Van Gogh painting, the hosts are really friendly, I felt very safe there, and they have water + a porta potty ! I will definitely be back again ! :)

Everything was great. The scenery, the level camping spot, the beauty, the peacefulness, it was all perfect. The hosts have done an amazing job of making their property absolutely beautiful. It’s hard to improve nature, but they made it so nice for tent camping. I loved all the animal sounds at night, the peacefulness and the tranquility. It was the best!

Beautiful sunset.
