Feel any stress or anxiety you might have escape you, as you make your way down into this little river valley. As you glance over to you're right, you see the constant flow of crystal clear water cutting its way through the forest. Continuing your descent into this sanctuary among the trees, your path opens up into a clearing surrounded by a stand of towering evergreens. This camp above the river serves as your perfect hideaway where you can rest and recharge. On this, a little over two acres of riverfront land, there is a circle drive that loops along the edge of a clearing, giving access to 3 unique sites. These sites are tucked away with a comfortable amount of wooded space between them. At the center of this loop, there is a shared space to enjoy if you choose. This can be a nice space to gather for a meal at the large picnic table or have a game in the grass. There is also a large firepit that can be inviting to stand around and enjoy each other's company. The river is what really makes this property special. You will have access to a private stretch of river, just steps away from the camp area. A short trail takes you down to a level landing just above the river with plenty of space to gather. A few more steps down and you can dip your feet in the cool water that has made its way down from the Olympic Mountains. Each site is equipped with its own parking spot, firepit, and level areas for a tent or two. Besides the river, there is no running water or other utilities. There is access to a portable restroom that is a short distance from the campsites. There is additional parking near the entrance if you have a second vehicle, or if you have a small camper trailer to leave at the site and need a place to park your vehicle. Another major benefit to this property is its general location. Stay and enjoy the camp to its fullest or use it as your home base and go explore the Olympic Peninsula. There are multiple hiking trails nearby in the Olympic National Park and nearby State Parks. You can also find yourself at multiple beaches that are only minutes away. If you enjoy a swim, there are also multiple lakes within minutes of the property. The small town of Quilcene is just a few minutes away and offers a couple little stores, a gas station, restaurants, a laundromat, post office, and a National Park Ranger Station. The historic town of Port Townsend is approximately 30 minutes away. You can also enjoy the incredibly beautiful drive down Highway 101 as it navigates along the edge of the Hood Canal.

Camp Site #2
The property is so well tended to and thoughtfully laid out, and the fresh running water of the river offers a gorgeous soundtrack to your stay. A heads up: the sites are all mostly visible to one another, parking spaces would be tricky for vehicles larger than a camper van, and there is some road noise. All in all I enjoyed my stay and Alan is an incredible host 🙌🏼

Camp Site #3
Alan was so kind and allowed us to arrive early! He provided very clear directions on how to get there. The site was beautiful, private, lush, and green. The loop was a lot smaller than we thought but still provided a lot of privacy and space. Walk less than 1 min across the loop and down to a roaring river. You could tell the host put a lot of time and love into constructing the campsites. Mulch was laid down for a comfy nights sleep in tents. Falling asleep to the sound of the river was a treat. Note that there’s a road nearby and you may hear a few cars every hour or so. But you still feel pretty immersed in the lush rainforest! Birds, bats, lots of fern and honestly one of the best smelling portable bathroom I’ve ever encountered lol! Lots of nearby hiking trails too. I would love to camp here again. Thank you, Alan!

Ideal Hideaway
This spot was great. Location was close enough to town to pick up a few things we missed, but secluded enough to feel away from it all. The spot itself was well cared for and had nice foliage and a nice gravel path my sedan could access. River is right behind the camp with a short path leading up to it. Would love to stay again. There are 3 campsites far enough away from each other that my dogs didn’t care too much about the strangers.
