Hipcamp has done an "update" which has completely rearranged our listings, and added every single picture to every single site. I am so sorry for the confusion this adds. Please contact me so that I can help you find what you are looking for. I can give you site info, availability, and pics through text or email.
Sites are listed as:
-Individual (ind) - up to 6 people
-Small Group (sm group) - up to 16 people
-Large Group (lg group) - up to 30 people
We have 9 options for Individual, 7 options for Small Group, and 5 options for Large Group. Some of these are different options for the same site.
They are not necessarily in order. Please scroll through. Not all sites can accommodate groups. Some sites are not feasible for large trailers. Click on a site for the description and more details. More site pics coming soon.
We offer some of the most beautiful scenery in western Washington. Here you will find the peaceful quiet of being "away from it all", yet in reality you are only a little over a mile from the local grocery store, restaurants, and gas stations along Hwy 12 in Randle.
Randle is a gateway to many other outdoor areas and activities including Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, and Mt. St. Helens. You can feel safe leaving your camp set up while you take day excursions.
We have sites scattered across 70 acres. Your perfect camping site may be found in the fields, in the shade of the trees, by the river, in view of Mt. Adams, or a combination of these. We have space to accommodate one person or large groups. You can be assured plenty of space for privacy and quiet, even if other campers are in the vicinity.
We currently host newly developed, private river access, camp areas on the upper Cowlitz River. ("Newly developed" means that the brush and briars were pushed away and there is dirt remaining.)
We are mowing and clearing limbs to try to make things easy to get around and look nice, but this has been a cattle grazing pasture for the past 100 years. It is also flood plain, so we get a fresh covering of river silt almost every year.
HipCamp shows us as having 23 sites, but that is because some sites have more than one option to book. However, there are ONLY 13 site locations strategically spread across this large acreage, each with its own "personality" and benefits.
The property has a TWO MILE perimeter.....there is plenty of room!
PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION FOR EACH SITE to find out what type of vehicle it can handle. Some are tent only.
Even though the HipCamp site map may look like the property could be crowded, we monitor our registrations and limit bookings in an additional effort to maintain privacy and a peaceful atmosphere. We value being in the outdoors, with the feeling of "getting away", without having the rules, restrictions, and crowds of typical campground areas.... we figure you do too.
The Google Earth picture used to pinpoint site locations is a few years old. We have been clearing site areas of underbrush and briars.
New pics will be added as we get them. Please feel free to ask questions about any site.
Most areas can be accessed with 2wd vehicles, although certain areas may not be sketchy for something with low clearance. Some sites are more friendly to larger trailers than others. Please read the descriptions and ask questions if you are unsure.
We have four separate riverbars, some with sandy beach areas. There is plenty of river space for all. Ask us about river floating and kayak options.
Let us know if you have a special group event. We are very flexible and can help you create the situation that would suit your group the best.
Pets are welcome, but be aware that coyotes, bobcat, and cougar have been sited in the valley. There are also eagles and hawks to be aware of for smaller animals.
Feel free to reach out with questions before booking to make sure all of your needs can be accommodated.
Things to be considered: Need for outside toilets, need for campfire wood, need for water, types of vehicles, your camping goal (group get together or total solitude with peace and quiet), quick easy access to the main road or camping way off the path, best pet areas, best kid friendly areas, ect.
We welcome your questions. Our goal is to help you make great memories!
