Hidden Meadow on Henderson Inlet

4 sites · RVs, Tents4 acres · Olympia, WA
Burn ban information here: https://www.southbayfire.com/thurston-burn-information About us: Hello and thank you for checking out Hidden Meadow, our names are Jake and Molly. We love camping, hiking and any opportunity to be outside with our two children! In 2020 (one week before the whole world shut down from Covid) we found the hidden gem we had been searching for! A perfect place to raise our family, space to play and explore nature, super private and close to town! It seemed too good to be true and still does! After settling in and realizing what amazing natural beauty we had, we got to work developing our garden, orchards, trails, fire pits and….Campsites! After building a camp site for our family, we decided that we wanted to share this amazing space with other families to enjoy! We built Hidden Meadow to be the campsite that we have always searched for on our family adventures, surrounded by nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the world, with trails for hiking and a HOT TUB to relax in, in the evening! We hope that you enjoy it! About the property: We are located on a very private property (the only houses you will see are across the inlet) surrounded by nature but only about 10 minutes from downtown Olympia and 5 minutes from I-5 and Lacey. The property is situated on the very south end of Henderson Inlet. We are on the tide flats so twice a day (at high tide) we have the opportunity to explore on the water in canoes and kayaks. The property is spread over 16 acres and is comprised of two large fields (one in front of our home and the other is a smaller meadow off to the side (hidden meadow) and forest land. There is tons of space for playing, exploring and tiring out your kids and pups! Wildlife is abound with eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, shore birds and a variety of forest birds make this place their home. We are also frequented by the local deer who wonder through and say hi. About the campground: The campground is located in the far northeast corner of the property on the edge of the forest and meadow. In the common areas you will find the bathroom which has a shower and toilet. The toilet is an incinerating toilet (so cool!) and the shower is propane headed. There is a hottub situated right on the edge of the forest with peek-a-boo views of the inlet. You will also find garbage and recycling bins as well as a sink for washing hands (please water only down the sink). We have provided soap that is biodegradable for the sink and shower to help reduce our impact on this beautiful environment. There are trails throughout the forest along the 600 feet of water (tide) front. Along the trails you will find several different benches, seats and swings to relax and enjoy nature from. There is also several fairies and gnomes who have been sighted in the forest. If you look closely, you might spot one too! We ware, if you touch a fairy or gnome they do lose their magical powers so please respect the mystical creatures. 😊 The sites are about 500 feet from our house and offers great privacy. You may see us throughout the day and evening coming and going from the campground, working on the property or playing with the kids on the trails! Dogs: We do have two dogs on the property (Wilma and Bean) who are very friendly and we will keep them out of camp during your stay. Although they typically follow us when we walk down there. We allow dogs to be off leash at owner’s risk. There may be other dogs in camp so please use discretion when letting your dogs off leash and be mindful of other campers. You must be responsible for your own dogs, we are not responsible for any dog related or dog inflicted injuries. Getting here: We are off of Sleater Kinney Rd in Olympia. We have a long, steep, curvy driveway. At the bottom of the driveway, you will find signs directing you to the camp site. If you have extra vehicles, we have extra parking spaces adjacent to the campsite. The road out to camp may be bumpy (we do our best to keep it smooth) so go slow and beware of natural obstacles. Rules: 1. Check in time is 2:00pm or later. For afterhours arrivals, please let us know. 2. Check out time is 12:00pm or earlier 3. Quiet hours from 9pm to 8am. You are far from our house, so we can’t hear you but sound travels well over the water to our neighbors. Nobody wants grumpy neighbors, please be respectful. 4. Remain within the campground boundary during all times. If you need us, please feel free to text or call. 5. Please put all trash in the trash cans or take it with you. 6. Remove all dog doo and dispose of in the trash. 7. Leave what you find (except ripe blackberries). Please leave any forest treasures where you found them. 8. Cleanup any debris left from firewood/camp activities before departing. 9. Enjoy nature and respect it. Please stay on trails and respect the plants and the natural habitats. 10. Stay off the dock. It is closed for repair. 11. Do not use the trailside fireplace (if you find it) or our personal canoe or kayaks. However, feel free to enjoy the view from the seats by the fireplace. 12. Be cautious when walking around, the ground is bumpy and there are exposed tree roots that can be tripping hazards. We are not responsible from injuries. 13. Help us keep it clean- if you find any garbage around, please pick it up or let us know. 14. Keep fires small and when you are finished PUT YOUR FIRES DEAD OUT! There are 5 gallon buckets by each fire put to fill before you start your fire for putting them out. 15. Please do not burn trash or food. It can create issues with the wildlife. Put all waste in garbage cans.

Dean’s Campground

17 sites · RVs, Tents11 acres · Auburn, WA
Welcome to Dean’s! Eight minutes off Highway 18 lies 11 acres of mostly undeveloped land. Dean's is a beautiful, bare-bones place to rest between national parks, before or after crossing the US / CA border, or to set up base camp to explore Seattle / Tacoma. Our main driveway is CLOSED this year for repairs. We have alternate arrival instructions for you after you book. These instructions add about 7 minutes (totaling 8 minutes) from Highway 18 to the campground. Our location is convenient. We are just minutes from Auburn city limits. Road noise, planes, Pacific Raceways, and freight trains are audible here even if muffled by the trees. We have a brand new neighborhood in construction on one of our property lines. Heavy machinery is in use around 8 am and usually finished by dinner time. In order to provide safety and peace, hosts live just outside the campground and closely manage happenings. All our sites have 2-4 persons occupancy in hopes of deterring parties. Our quiet hours are 8pm-8am so we can rest up for the next day’s adventures. We ban fires during the peak of summer to avoid the issue of wildfires entirely. Propane stoves are welcome. We do not have a check in cut-off time tho reservations do need to be made before midnight. We have zero tolerance for hateful, abusive, or discriminatory behavior toward people, belongings, and wildlife. With that being said, the 40+ year old trees and distance between the campsites provides space for you to bring and create your own vibes. Hosts should only approach you with safety or quiet hour concerns. They are available 24 / 7 for any questions or requests you may have. Feel free to reach out any time (our phone number can be found on Google).

Capa Campground

9 sites · RVs, Tents3 acres · Quinault, WA
Private 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."

Summit Farms: Peaceful & Enjoyable

11 sites · RVs, Tents28 acres · Olympia, WA
** Now accepting bookings for the 2024 season stays from April 1 - Nov. 3 ** We are Mitch and Michelle, 3rd year farmers selling at the Olympia and Tumwater Farmers Markets, South Sound Fresh, Certified Tourism Ambassadors and your Hosts. Our 28 acre property has a Heritage listed barn, is on the Thurston Bountiful Byway, and just minutes from the I5/Exit 99 - yet private and secluded - bordered by wetlands, and forest with both RV full hook-ups and dry campsites. Great for digital nomads, families, travel nurses, military and solo campers - safe, secure, and serene, Plus Enjoyable! Come to relax, have some fun, or both! Welcome! Our story: In February 2021, we saw this unkempt land and the dilapidated buildings therein, and KNEW in our hearts it was the place we would grow and gather for the rest of our lives. After a year of clean-up and repairs, and getting our farming business off the ground, we began hosting friends and family - eager to see our new digs. In the fall of '22 we decided to join Hipcamp and open up to “friends we haven’t met yet” so we could share this magical place. Even though our property is very rustic (sturdy shoe's recommended) and definitely a work in progress - we are grateful and excited about the idea that people are choosing to spend their time on our little farm. We are so appreciative of the beautiful reviews and that some have already become repeat visitors! We look forward to making improvements over the coming months and years for an even better camping experience. And most importantly we look forward to meeting and connecting with our Hipcampers! About The Property: This spot is truly a hidden gem. A turn-of-the century farm property located at the end of a private lane in unincorporated Thurston County, about ten miles from the State Capitol. The property is private and secluded, bordered by Millersylvania State Park on one side, wetlands and undeveloped forest on two sides, and the nearest neighbors are a quarter-mile to the rear. It feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere, with an almost 360 degree view of brush and trees, while just eight minutes off HWY 5. We have three RV full hook-up sites for rent (a fourth one is available by request, if you are camping with a large group or family-otherwise we like to space them out for added privacy), with easy back or front in-and-out access, able to accommodate up to 35ft rigs. For our guests looking for a more natural and rugged experience, there are also five dry camp sites all chosen for their unique beauty, and well spaced out, so you get that “away from it all” feel. Each site has a communal or personal picnic table and a Fire/BBQ pit. There are also two port-a-potty's and a wash station in the center of the camp area.. While staying with us, you’ll enjoy the quiet peaceful setting, just right for bird-watching or nature walks. Find a perfect spot for your daily meditation, yoga or writing practice. Read a book. Listen to your favorite music. Lay on your back and watch the clouds or gaze at the moon and stars. And NEW for 2024 is the swing set, which was made to be enjoyed by ALL ages! If it's been a while since you've been on a swing, please trust us when we say a there's something a bit magical about kicking your legs in the air, while gazing at the tree tops and clouds, and feeling the wind in your face... so go ahead and wake up your inner child! You are also welcome to hang out in our gorgeous Big Red Barn where you will find rope swings, a pool table and assorted musical instruments to jam on if that’s your thing. We also have a 10 foot screen, projector, big speakers and dozens of DVDs for a movie in the barn. We will often do a family friendly Movie Night for our guests with young ones. But if no kiddos are camping, it can be a more adult selection. We only ask that you request movies in advance so we can do the set-up and give precise shut-down instructions, and that quiet hours are observed. We want all of our guests to have a memorable time. In addition, you can venture out to Deep Lake at Millersylvania State Park (or the many other nearby parks, lakes or trails). We’re just 15 minutes from downtown Olympia - with lots to see and do, as well as all necessary supplies. We are Farmers, First and we specialize in a number of areas depending on the season. From April to June, we're growing and selling various vegetable and herb starts. The sunflowers are in bloom through September and we have cacti and succulents for sale all season long. In late summer we have tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, squash and later, u-pick pumpkins. We have an outdoor grow-house, a sunflower/pumpkin patch, and an indoor greenhouse (lit up at night). We are working towards our organic certification in 2025, (we use no chemicals or GMO) and a commercial food processing license so we can sell specialty salsas, sauces, pickles and relish. We also have 100-year old black walnut trees, hazelnut bush/trees and decades old other apple trees and on normal weather years, peaches and plums along with the ubiquitous blackberries and bamboo you are free to pick or cut (just ask for a cutter). Things to Know while staying at Summit Farms CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT: Weekday check-in time is between 2:00 - 8:00pm. Saturday and Sunday is 4:00 - 8:00pm. (We are at Farmers Markets until 3:00pm most weekends) Check-out is 12:00pm everyday. Since we like to greet each of our guests in person, direct them to their spot and answer any questions, we kindly request that you make every effort to arrive during the hours noted above. We have very busy lives (besides managing HipCamp), we sometimes we need to be away from the property, and we definitely want to be off the clock after 8pm. Thanks! *Note* If for some reason you foresee you wont be able to observe these hours, let us know as far in advance as possible, and we will do what we can to accommodate you. TENT SITES: Most all of them you can drive your Subaru or small truck or SUV to, it's just a bit bumpy and we can lead you there in the ATV. We're also happy to have you park on the gravel road and ferry you and your gear for check-in and check-out, if you feel like your vehicle can't make it. RV SITES: Though we have four full hook-up sites available, we normally only list three for guests, as we think that it's best to have some space between rigs. However, if you're a family or group of friends camping together and would like to rent a fourth RV hook-up, just ask and we'd be happy to accommodate you. • NOISE: We are located in a very private and quiet area. However, we are near Olympia airport, as well as in the airspace which JBLM uses for training, so you may hear the occasional small airplanes and military aircraft flying overhead during the daylight hours. There are also two freight railroad lines that run along Old HWY 99 and through Maytown. They are hardly noticeable, until the midnight train comes through. (Think “My Cousin Vinny!”)… We find the sound to be quite nostalgic and cool, but we’re very sorry if it disturbs you. It is also possible you may hear some chainsaws or other farm equipment (sometimes in the early morning) from nearby properties. Finally, every now and again you will hear gunshots- which means either our neighbors are getting in some target practice or folks are enjoying hunting season. It never lasts long. We hope you won’t be alarmed. NEW for 2024: We have a dedicated washer and dryer for camper use in the lower barn along with detergent, bleach and softener. Please let us know if you want to use and for how many loads and we'll provide a price. • SHOPPING: The best area to shop for essentials is two exits north, off Trosper Road. There you’ll find Fred Meyer, Home Depot, COSTCO, Walmart and Walgreens. Capital Mall is about 15 minutes from here off HWY 101. If you’re looking for a specific type of retailer, just let us know and we’ll do our best to help you find what you need. • FOOD: Our favorite places to eat locally for quick and casual bites, would be “Farelli's Pizza” in Tumwater, “Old HWY 99 Bar & Grill” or "Lady of the Lake" in Tenino (all less than 10 minutes away). If you’re looking for something more (seafood, fine dining, Tapas, Italian, Mexican), just ask and we’ll give you our recommendations. • PARKS: As noted on our listing we are just a few minutes from Millersylvania State Park where there are hiking trails, a beautiful lake and even a snack bar and seasonal beer garden! We’re also in close proximity to other places to walk, hike, boat or swim. NOTE: Every park we’ve been to requires a “Discovery Pass” and this is very strictly enforced (A one day pass is $12, a year pass is $35, and the fine for parking without one is $99!). A FEW MORE DETAILS: We want you to be safe, comfortable, and most of all, enjoy all our little farm property has to offer. To ensure this, we’ve put together a list of things to be mindful of while you make our land your home away from home. 1) SAFETY FIRST: FIRES: While there are county fire bans in place, or if it is too windy, hot or dry to feel comfortable permitting campfires on our property (we’ll let you know), no campfires can be allowed. If fires are being permitted, please build your fire only in the fire-pits, with the heat pad placed underneath. Most every HipCamper knows, but never leave a fire unattended, and be sure to completely extinguish it before leaving the area (thanks!). We'll point out hose connections that reach and fire extinguishers we have placed all around the property (just in case). BBQ: You are free to grill on your BBQ with propane, coals or pellets. Again, please be extra mindful of heat and flames, never leaving the cooking area unattended until completely finished. Once done, please allow coals to cool, wrap in foil, and dispose of in the trash (you may use our trash can for this purpose, if you don’t want to bring ash into your vehicle). WILDLIFE: Please be aware that our property is home to much wildlife. To name a few, we have resident deer that roam freely, garter snakes in the tall-and sometimes not-so-tall grass, as well as hidden under random rocks and such. Recently, our guests have spotted a neighbor's lost black calf munching on low hanging apples in the early morning fog. The area is also home to lots of rabbits, and of course the protected Pocket Gophers (as you’ll notice their dirt piles all around). There are also hundreds of birds that reside in the area, including many birds of prey, such as eagles and hawks. And maybe you'll see Paddy the Ring Tailed Pheasant without tail feathers. Though never sighted, we have heard of coyotes, bears, minx, raccoons, skunks, and the like in and around our area. Thankfully, Blooms Ditch (you are welcome to visit on the south side of the west field) provides an environmentally protected barrier between the Doug Firs and animals from our property. So, if you're scared of snakes, or have a small pet with you that could possibly be the target of a hungry Bald Eagle-this is a heads up, to keep your awareness sharp- but mostly just a reminder to do your best to live safely, and in harmony with all the living things that we share our home with. *About the bees... We are very lucky and thankful that there are TONS of bees pollinating our land. You will notice honeybees, mason bees, bumble bees, ect all around. Please be aware that we have three Honeybee colonies living in the walls of the lower part of the barn, which were scheduled to be moved in Fall '23, but that fell through. We are working on the next plan to get them into proper hives. Most of the bees will buzz right past you doing their important work, but, again be aware, especially if you're allergic! We do get the occasional yellowjacket/wasp or hornets nest - which, as you probably know can be aggressive. If you spot a wasp/hornet nest in a place where you think it should not be, (DO Not spray with anything) just please inform us immediately and we we will contact professionals for removal ASAP. WALKING THE PROPERTY: You are welcome, and encouraged to roam our property freely. We have set up a walking/running/off-road bike path around the property that we're working on proper signage. It's about a 0.8 mile loop, or there is also a 400 meter (quarter-mile) (bumpy) running/walking track on the west field towards Millersylvania. Please keep the following in mind. Firstly, the grassy fields on our land can be bumpy, uneven, and have random holes and rocks here and there. We ask that you please watch your step at all times. Also, if you venture into an uncut area, please be aware of stinging nettles, blackberry vines and other such sharp and thorny bushes and weeds. Second, you are free to pick any wild berries (we have tons of blackberries) or forage for other wild plants you find on our land. You may also pick apples from the orchard for personal consumption. And lastly, please observe and refrain from wandering into our private resident areas, and work areas. And, importantly, do not cross the boundary into our neighbor’s property-Clearly defined by the bright green "No Trespassing" signs. 2) PETS: Your four-legged family members are welcome here! We ask only that unless they have excellent recall, or never leave your side, you keep them on a leash or in a pet gate, while outdoors. We have neighbors whose dogs roam off leash every once in a while, and we don’t want any curious furry guests to come or leave because they smell another pooch too close to the edge. We also have a two-year-old American Staffordshire Pitty mix who will be in our fenced yard or on a leash whenever guests are staying here. He is very friendly and curious - but he is recovering from recent leg surgery. If you happen to see us on a walk and I turn the other direction, just know it's only to prevent him from running or jumping. You will probably hear him bark protectively, but will settle pretty quickly. 3) THE BIG RED BARN: Except for the corner self-serve “Barn Store”, the lower barn is normally off limits, but just ask us to open as we’re happy to give the kiddos the chance to sit (safely) on the tractor etc. The upper barn is open for your exploration or simply to hang out. You’re free to bring food, drinks, books, board-games or a Bluetooth if you want to listen to music. Just remember that it is a shared space for all of our campers - so be considerate of others and please take anything you brought with you, when you leave. We have not only found some left trash, empty cans and bottles - but shoes, sweatshirts and even a guitar capo! So please do a quick double-check before you go :) We have some audio and visual equipment, as well as musical instruments which you can use. However, we ask that you please check in with us first, so we can help with set-up, and go over any use instructions. This is where we can put on a family or group movie night, (we'll handle the set up, and it's a very cool experience for young and old). Donations accepted for poor Family Farmers :-) 4) STARGAZING: we encourage you to bring binoculars or a telescope as Jupiter is high and bright along with Saturn and the star formations, and you might even see a meteor shower in one of the darkest local places we know (check dates especially for the Orionids, which are better than the Perseids.) The Moon and Mars are pretty spectacular here also! 5) BE NEIGHBORLY: *We ask that you please observe the 10 MPH speed limit, as this helps keep wildlife safe, controls gravel dust, and minimizes wear and tear on our private road. We've had big trucks with 31 foot plus trailers and no reported issues driving in, parking, etc. *Quiet Hours are from 10:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m. please refrain from playing loud music, using loud voices and/or other potentially disturbing noise, to allow for those who are sleeping to do so (except for the midnight train, haha). *A few bins are located around the property, which you may use to dispose of small miscellaneous trash and recycling items. However, take your trash & recycling with you when you check-out, if at all possible - thanks! 5) OTHER POSSIBILITIES We had some requests on HipCamp about hosting a healing/wellness/yoga/women's groups, band practice or other such venue and the answer is a Big Yes! We're keen and happy to message or talk about any of your ideas for a "run of the place" package. We're on the Thurston Agri-Tourism Advisory Committee and we can connect you or arrange the best BBQ catering on-site for your team or group or big hungry family! Well, we think that covers it! Again, we are so glad to have you here, and hope you Love our place as much as we do. If there is anything we haven’t covered, or you’re unsure about something, don’t hesitate to ask. Most of all…Enjoy you’re stay at Summit Farms! Very Welcome, Mitch and Michelle

Majestic Meadows is located on the back forested side of 10 acres. Each campsite is placed far enough apart to have privacy to enjoy the serenity of the camping experience. The property is filled with wild life. Mornings will be greeted with birdsong and our fields occasionally with elk, dear, and coyotes. Our property is a bird haven, so if you love watching birds we get regular sightings of Hawks, Eagles, Sparrows, Robins and little peaks of the adorable Humming birds. Our bunny population has no issues reproducing and filling all our bushes with their cute tails. If adventure is your desire, we are located perfectly! Mt. Rainier scenic drive can be enjoyed from either 401 or a short drive to the southern entrance. Passing through Elbe where you can stop for a nice bite to eat on a train at the Mt.

RV+ Rainbow Falls / Willapa Trails

9 sites · RVs, Tents56 acres · Chehalis, WA
Just 1.5 hours from Seattle, Portland, Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, & Olympic National Park, just 3 minutes from Rainbow Falls State Park and 4 minutes from Willapa Biking Trail! We are located on top of Bunker Hill nestled between the Dunn creek and Chehalis river. Our property is 56 acres of mixed biomes including multi-generational forests, open meadows, and creek side trails. We are located right off Chandler Road, off of Highway 6. You turn onto Labri road (white sign) and you're on the property after going through a gate. Meander down the road past a red barn and several buildings on your right. Through the second gate, the dispersed camping site offers various sites for camping attached to a main trail that parallels the Dunn creek down to the Chehalis river. They are conveniently accessible off the logging roads which cross with Labri road after you've passed through the second gate. If you take the logging road to the left (look for a blue and white ribbon) you will come up to a tree line where you can park (another blue and white ribbon) and either take the trail to the left or right where you will find ample places to camp. You may camp along the trail or closer to the creek. The most ideal spot is right after you park near the blue and white ribbon if you walk North you'll see a site marked with an orange and white ribbon. This site has easy access to the creek but is still on a hill. There are four RV spots with full onsite hook-up. Two of the RV sites are paved and lit with ground lights and are prioritized for heavier rigs. The other two sites are on grass. We have two RV sites with no hook up (boondocking) but bathroom and shower access. We do not allow dumping of grey water or sewage at our property but there is a dump station just 1 minute away at Rainbow Falls State Park. The site is located on a hill so you get very nice view of sunsets and sunrises. For those who enjoy bird watching the nearby fruit trees bring in many birds. We are an ideal location for those who love the outdoors or just want to have private family events. 6 mi from Jones Creek Brewing, 7 mi from Evey's Cafe & Pe Ell, 20 mi from I-5, 69 mi Westport Quiet hours are from 10pm-8am.

Dragons Gate Gardens & Wilds

16 sites · RVs, Tents126 acres · Tenino, WA
Tenino, the area we are in is where the First Nations People used as the Gathering Grounds. The Europeans when they came with their railroad chose to continue that tradition. Tenino is ground zero for the measurement of where one is on the railroad. We fell in love with our farm with its much untouched acres (not know any chemicals for the last 30 years) to create a place where people can gather and reconnect with life's natural beauty. We are certified organic, Salmon Safe certified, and pesticide free. Dragons' Gate Gardens is home to many giant crystals and here their beauty works delightfully with the land. The area has gently rolling hills filled with wildflowers during the earlier part of the Summer. Dragons Gate Gardens and Wilds has a hundred and twenty acres to explore. The Skookumchuck River is a little over a mile away where you can enjoy a waterfall and walk along the river with low bank where one can get into the water. Doing so is a great favorite of our guests. There is a giant crystal housed in a gazebo that overlooks the surrounding fields and woods. Time to meditate with the giant crystal in the gazebo can be booked with Kathleen for a fee of $55. We are wild and woolly. We provide a place to experience nature as it simply is. We privilege pollinators above human aesthetics. Wildflowers abound, including various dandelions which many are edible and healing plants. We encourage converting from lawns to meadow lands being supportive of wild birds and insects. If you like it wild we are the place for you. This is not a resort or English style garden. Tall grass, wild flowers and trees fill the land around you to give you a feeling of full immersion in Nature.

3 sites · RVs, Tents1 acre · Lilliwaup, WA
Farm fresh oysters available during your stay! You don't want to miss this truly unique location! Our sites sit just up the hill (0.4 miles) from US 101 and the beautiful shores of the Hood Canal, with semi-obstructed views of the water. I own and run Lilliwaup Oyster Farm just down the hill and across the 101 - you'll pass the workshop and processing building on your drive up to the sites. Surrounded by old growth trees, wildflowers, and the serene soundscape of the rushing creek straight from the springs of the Olympic Mountains, come rest and reconnect with yourself, your crew, and the elements. STEEP, WINDING GRADES: This is a winding, mountain hillside - not ideal for longer length rigs. Most of the hillside is 6% grade, and the last few hundred yards up are at a 10%+ grade. Site #2 includes full RV hookups: water, 50 amp electric + sewer. Site #4 includes partial RV hookups: water + 30 amp electric. All sites have access to the onsite unisex restroom. We are close to many Hood Canal must see's + must do's. Copy/paste this link into your browser to get the full scope of what's nearby with our interactive map!

Curley Creek Canyon

8 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Port Orchard, WA
Forest camping on a huckleberry farm with a salmon stream. 10 acres of permaculture and mycology includes 5 granite fire pits and loop trails with dispersed tent sites. A remote island, naturist beach and kayak at the creek. Parking is limited. Guests love it here: "We stayed two nights at Curley Creek Canyon and loved the experience! Jerrett was a wonderful host and met us upon arrival with great recommendations of places to explore on his beautiful property. The camp sites are clean, private, and have fire pits, and benches provided. We took the roped trail down to the creek (bring gloves its a bit steep) and saw large groups of salmon swim upstream. This time of year is magical with the dropping leafs and lush moss/fungus sightings. Highly recommend if you're looking for a quick getaway from the city to connect to nature. Thanks, Jerrett for the experience and look forward to our next visit!"
