Denise and Mike are gracious, friendly hosts. They gave us lots of local information so we could explore the area. The site itself is quiet, beautiful and spacious. Our first Hipcamp experience and it was perfect. I highly recommend Rusty Gate.

Looking for a quiet peaceful spot to "just get away from it all" for 1 or 2 or ? days? Mike & Denise have the perfect place for you. A pleasant friendly couple, they obviously care about their guests and the facilities are very well maintained. I hope to be able to return in the future and am pleased to recommend "The Rusty Gate".

Mike and Denise were wonderful hosts and we can’t say enough good things about the site. We camped in an orchard surrounded by blueberries, wild salmon berries and huckleberries. The site also sat next to a forest and the dawn chorus each day was glorious. We had a picnic table, a hammock, water, an outhouse, and a firepit too. We were a very short drive to trails, beaches and town. We would absolutely stay here again.

I've camped all over the NW, and Rusty Gate has to be in my top five experiences. Secluded, tranquil, well-maintained. The hosts are friendly and helpful, and we are looking forward to coming back next year.

Lovely place! A piece of paradise! Everything we expected of a nice camping area! Very quiet and peaceful. Good campsite. All amenities were clean and in good condition. We were camping in a beautiful orchard and it felt like we had it all to ourselves. Denise was very kind and helpful. Thanks again Denise!

Tranquil orchard getaway

Luis D.

We had a great time at Rusty Gate - Denise provided us with a beautiful private campsite nestled in a grove of apple trees. We had just finished a long day of kayaking and we enjoyed relaxing in the hammock, listening to the birds, and winding down after a long day. It was delightful to wander the blueberry orchards and bask in the tranquility of the farm.

The property is absolutely beautiful, peaceful, and overall fantastic to camp in. Denise has set up an accommodating campsite, from the outhouse, to the clean camp table, to the benches, rope chairs, and hammocks that dot the property. We'll definitely be visiting again on our next trip in the area.
