Great View!
Karen’s property is a peaceful place to relax and it has a great view of the cove. Karen is a polite host. She was there to greet us when we arrived and she confirmed that we had everything we needed. It’s an area of Washington that we will not get tired of. We will be back for a visit in the future.

Key Pen Heaven
We changed our plans last minute and found Karen’s land after staying in another Hipcamp property in Oregon the two previous nights. This was such a wonderful find, so private, peaceful and such a great little private cove. We kayaked when the tide was in and explored the beaches when the tide was out. Our puppy was in heaven with the smells and free land to run and roam. Karen brought us a small fire pit and offered to go into town for more wood, if needed. It was such a lovely little find on our PNW road trip.

Peaceful paradise
Absolutely loved this location. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We launched our kayak out with the high tide as we were arrived and had a lovely afternoon paddle through the area. And during low tide our puppy had so much fun exploring the new terrain and smells. Karen was so accommodating and offered us a fire pit and wood. An unexpected highlight of our PNW trip.

Tent campen (no amenities)
Great little spot on the water (part of the day)! The property was a little smaller than I was thinking it would be based on pictures, but we were able to pitch our tent under the trees along the driveway and enjoy the sounds of nature undisturbed. Host is very accommodating, friendly and quick to respond.
