This property was once part of a 200 acre cattle ranch turned into a Christian community. The families shared meals, home-schooled their children and had a home-based church. They raised their own food in a 3 acre garden and orchard along with chickens and cows for milk, meet and eggs. Two of the original families still own some of the acres although the community was dissolved and much of the property sold to other people.   Learn more about this land: We love sharing our beautiful land with those that love nature. The sunsets, the peace and the birdsong are the best.  Pets are welcome and you can walk through the forest with them on dirt pathways. Grassy areas are available to set up tents or have picnics. There are firepits for when the burn ban is not on (a wheelbarrow full of wood for $5). The campsites are large and spaced quite far from each other.  Please stay on gravel roadways with all motor vehicles.  There is one outhouse for tents campers. No running water or electricity.  For your own safety and peace of mind, please keep all food in bear safe containers or locked in your cars. If you forget anything the Washougal River Mercantile is two miles away where you can buy gas and groceries.  Local hiking trails on the Columbia Gorge:  Cape Horn Trail just 3 miles from our property and Beacon Rock/Hamilton Mountain trail is a 15 minute drive.   We can give you directions to our favorite swimming hole for cooling down on hot summer days in the Washougal river. (Discovery Pass required at the river parking spot. Buy those at the Mercantile as well)

Beautiful, safe, and peaceful
Rhoda’s property was lovely, clean, well maintained, safe, and very quiet. I had an easy and excellent overnight stay and Rhonda was very kind and helpful in directing me to the nearest most convenient eats.

Rhoda's private land with two camping sites was great! Quiet, private, with a few trails and a spring to explore. Book both sites at once for a nice group gathering with several camping buddies!

Serene forest location.
Easy to find, Lovely and quiet place in the woods. The sites are flat and you feel like you're nestled in a forest.

Serene Camping
I loved this campsite. There were gorgeous views of Columbia River Gorge a short drive away. And the scenery at camp was so comfortable and peaceful. It was very quiet at night. We had a short, but happy stay.

A wonderful spot to rest and relax! Super quiet and peaceful. One note, I had to use 4x4 to get up the driveway, which is narrow but easily passable.

A Lovely Spot
Stunning Woodland Acres is gorgeous, quiet and relaxing. Rhoda has clearly put a lot of thought into the space as the campsites she created are well planned and private. The outhouse was cute and clean, not words I typically associate with an outhouse. I highly recommend this spot and I will probably return.

Wonderful, serene, private campsite on large acreage. The second campsite is at a distance and we had full privacy on site 1. Hosts are super friendly and we loved our stay.

It was quiet and beautiful! The host was also very thoughtful. She messaged me right away after booking to let me know there was a motocross event in the valley below that weekend, so I could get a refund if that didn’t work for me. The directions on this website are great (we got a bit lost because we just put their address into GPS, but they helped us find the place). We only stayed over one night, but it was great and I would definitely recommend it and will go back if in the area.

Peaceful retreat
We loved Rhoda’s place! There’s a lot of trees on the property with well groomed areas for camping and hiking around. This location is not far from some incredible hikes and views of the Columbia river gorge as well. Rhoda and Brian were there to greet us upon arrival and welcoming.

Quiet forest oasis for camping
What a gorgeous place to camp! The site was very quiet, Rhoda greeted us upon arrival and made us feel very welcome. The site was spacious and had a nice table and area for a campfire, they even provided some wood as well. We loved being in the forest, definitely plan on coming back soon!

Nice space to chill
We Very much enjoyed our stay in space 1. Plenty of space to stretch out under the trees but with enough clearings to stargaze and charge solar panels. Nice outhouse closer to space 2. Nice grill to use but no propane was available at the time.

4th of July weekend!
Rhoda and Bryan are Amazing host. We been knowing them for 8 years. We always feel welcome, when we go visit her property. This is our first time camping with them. My girls and I enjoyed our 3 days and 2 nights stay. Rhoda showed us her favorite River spot just a few minutes away from her property and we loved it. We forgot to take a couple of things for our trip and she provided it for us!.. best first camping experience!.

Rhoda and Brian are such wonderful hosts. They were so helpful and responsive. The property was also very beautiful. We stayed at site 1, but walked around to site 2 area and it’s a bit more tucked away backed to the woods. It was nice! We really enjoyed our stay. There’s 2 outhouses, and it was clean with a bucket of water for washing. If we’re ever back in the area, we will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic location; great hosts
This is a great site located up out of the Gorge, above the Washougal River. We were in site 1 which had a beautiful sunset view through the mossy bigleaf maple trees. It was a large space with terraces to make it level. A very quiet peaceful location. Overall this was one of my favorite hipcamp sites I've stayed at. I would definitely come back!

Camping with kids
Rhoda’s place had plenty of space and places to explore! The fire pit and our house were nice amenities! We didn’t get a chance to use the hiking trails, but the forest was super fun to play hide and seek in. Thanks for sharing!

Owl Adventure
Stunning is a correct description for this lovely place cared for with love by Rhoda & Brian, who’re great hosts. The owl symphony both nights & mornings I was there was unforgettable! A beautiful area for lots of fun exploring too. Thanks for sharing it!

My family and I LOVED camping at the Woodland Acres. Rhoda was VERY attentive and got right back to me the few times I texted her. The property was stunning and perfect spot for our multifamily gathering! We will be back.

Rhoda’s property is absolutely beautiful and the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. Very dog friendly and Luna, Rhoda’s dog, was a lot of fun when she would come over to visit. I would visit again.

Overall we had a good one night stay on our way to the coast. It was a beautiful place. Very quiet and serene. Two reasons probly would stay elsewhere next. I have a travel trailer and going is not just steap which was fine but very very ruff. They left trees in all the wrong places and it made it difficult to get in and out. Last is the out house is poorly designed and almost impossible to use. Butthat being said I got my need and the price was fine. Good nights sleep is what counts most.

Camping in the woods.
Great place to camp. Close to many trail heads. Not to far off off the 14 and quite place to stay. I would recommend this camp space and we will be back.

Peaceful and lots of character.
Rhoda’s Place was absolutely perfect. Peaceful, beautiful, and an area with lots of character. They have decorated with their own upgrades of various areas and lots of little hobbies they are working on. Some great trails to walk on and it’s exactly what we needed. Rhoda was a great host.
