Dean’s Campground
6 sites · RVs, Tents11 acres · Auburn, WABears, bobcats, coyotes and more frequent the property. Largely untouched by humans for the last 50 years after a once-over by Weyerhaeuser, most of the property still serves as unofficial refuge. We are boarded by King County protected wetlands, and a few newer builds. In 1975 Dean and Barbara Inabnit purchased 11 undeveloped acres from Weyerhaeuser. Dean’s plan to bring two manufactured homes to the property was only shortly delayed by a $20,000 bid per house to have the Coast Guard air lift the houses in to place. The only option, it seemed. Dean took his $40,000 and purchased a bulldozer and tractor. Weyerhaeuser granted Dean permission to widen well over 2 miles of county access road through the forest from the direction of the nearby fire station. He drug the homes through his temporary driveway and finally in 1978, the houses were hooked up to water, sewer, power. They moved in. He spent the next few years building a logging road as his main drive from Auburn-Black Diamond, sourcing all materials from the land. Dean and Barbara finished raising their family here, and for a while their grandchildren enjoyed the land, too. Dean is 82 years old, living in the Centralia area. We bought his bulldozer and his tractor, and he and his family are happy to know we are continuing their hard work.

It has nature, quiet, and privacy. It includes a 30-year-old orchard, a developed garden with fine soil, a pond with rope swing and waterslide, several solar and wind energy systems, and multiple buildings. It's about a mile in two directions from the Pacific Ocean beach, and is surrounded by wooded acreage that is criss-crossed with trails and friendly neighbors, on an island with about 700 year-round residents and an active weekend/summer population. Homestead owner Ian Woofenden is an expert in renewable energy systems. He's lived off-grid at the homestead for 40 years, where he raised his large family and managed several small businesses. He now consults, sells, writes, and teaches about renewable energy in the U.S. and in Central America. If your idea of a great getaway is to help out and do physical work, just ask Ian. There's always something going on at the homestead, including garden and orchard work, trail building, wood cutting, construction, sawmilling, and more. Ian built this place, and has a broad knowledge of lots of homestead and sustainability topics. He loves sharing his knowledge and experience with guest, students, and interns. Quick reminders: NOT a party spot. Not a place for lots of car trips in and out. Bikers can ask for 25% discount (or use bike listing). Two-night minimum. No pets. One tent per site.

Capa Campground
6 sites · RVs, Tents3 acres · Quinault, WAPrivate property along the Quinault River between NFS land and Olympic National Park, adjacent to Colonel Bob Wilderness and just past The Quinault Nation reservation. Homesteaders came here in 1890, prior to that there was no human habitation. A perfect base camp to explore the many varied facets of the West side of the Olympic Peninsula. The campsites are on acreage of a very small off-grid farm. Relax and forget the stress.We offer both tent and RV campsites. Toilets are available, as well as trash bins, potable water, and picnic tables. We do not allow pets.Guests love staying here: "This spot was everything we were hoping for and more! Awesome location near everything in Quinault. Received a fun, short tour of the property from our hosts who are incredibly nice.  The campsite was tidy and exactly what we imagined. Plenty of room between us and our neighbors, and we barely knew that they were there. The outhouse is basic but clean and charming. Imagine the friendliness of staying at a distant cousin's organic farm, with the facilities of a top-notch campsite. Only regret was that we were crashing there quickly, and weren't able to stay longer and relax on-site. If the description on the website seems like what you're looking for, I would highly recommend this location."

The Arboretum at Bear Canyon West
9 sites · RVs10 acres · Cinebar, WAThis is a gorgeous park-like campground situated between the trees of the arboretum. 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. Many trails have a view of the Tilton River, which can be reached via a challenging 3/4 mile trail. Sites are on 10 acres planted with many different species of trees that are about 25 years old. Giant Redwoods, Cedars, and Maples are just a few of the varieties present. Part of the farm is still a working Christmas tree farm.The trails were designed for 4-wheeler use and are wide and grassy. There is an old logging road that we use as a trail to the river. With an elevation change of about 500 feet, the trail can be quite challenging. Bear Creek empties into the Tilton river at the end of the trail. There is an art gallery where you can learn to pound flowers, see the host's art and get a cup of coffee! This is upstairs above the shop, right on the property. We look forward to hosting you!

The Farm on Van Wyck
7 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents80 acres · Bellingham, WAThanks for a great season, Hipcampers! We are closed until May 2023 and are not currently accepting bookings. ________ The Farm on Van Wyck has been in our family since the 1950's! Nick and I feel extremely fortunate to be able to call this place home and we love the idea of sharing our beautiful, tranquil space with others. The property is just shy of 80 acres and Squalicum Creek roughly separates the "front 40" from the "back 40". On the front 40 sits our house, a pond, old horse stalls that have been transformed into a communal covered space, and acres upon acres of wide open hay field. The sunsets and star gazing are pretty incredible out here! The back 40 is completely forested with some wetland areas and unmaintained walking trails throughout - guests are welcome to explore this area, but it may not be accessible depending on the water level of Squalicum Creek. We hope you love this place as much as we do!

With its enviable location on the Puget Sound, Seattle blends urban and outdoor lifestyles. When you’re craving a camping trip, you’re in luck—an hour’s drive takes you out of the city and into the wild. Northwestern Washington has it all, from backcountry mountain sites to Coastal RV parks.

Your biggest challenge is choosing the perfect site! For a PNW island vibe, check out the campgrounds on the Puget Sound. At spots like Fay Bainbridge Park and Joemma Beach State Park, you can sleep within steps of the sea.

About 40 miles from the city, the North Cascades offer cool mountain campsites. Camp on the slopes of an active volcano at Mount Rainier National Park. To the north, choose from 150 campgrounds and cabins in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. With 1,285 miles of hiking trails and endless rivers and streams, the forest has plenty to keep you busy.

Out on the Olympic Peninsula, it’s all wild mountains and pounding surf. You’ll find 14 campgrounds in Olympic National Park; sites at beautiful South Beach overlook the Pacific. Nearby, explore the Hoh Rainforest and hike the misty peaks. Or, join the locals in surfing and kayaking along the rocky coast.

Weather is always a consideration on a Seattle camping trip. The rainy season runs from November to May, but it’s a good idea to bring rain gear year-round. Summer brings sunshine and warm weather—be sure to book campsites early to beat the crowds.
