Near Mount Rainier National Park
Within a 30-minute drive from the Nisqually Entrance.
Perfect basecamp when visiting Mount Rainier! Come and stay on our small homestead and honeybee farm in Mineral, Washington. Located right on State Route 7, with easy access, we are 2 hours south of Seattle, a little over 2.5 hours north of Portland, and 2.5 hours west of Yakima. And minutes from Mount Rainier National Park, Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and Elbe Hills and Tahoma State Forests. We are a small homestead and apiary (honey bee farm) tucked beneath Mount Rainier in the beautiful PNW where on a clear day you’ll be treated to a stunning view of the mountain. We offer 3 campsites** in an open field where it’s not unusual to see elk or deer in the early morning hours or to see ducks, geese and other waterfowl enjoying our pond or hear our resident frogs serenading you in the evenings. There are wildflowers to enjoy, bees and other pollinators to photograph, and on clear nights, the star gazing is amazing - bring your telescope if you've got one! Our property is adjacent to National Forest Land, perfect for hiking, foraging, and hunting. We are located 5 minutes from Mineral Lake - home of the 10 pound trout, ideal for the avid fisherman, boater, kayaker or all around water enthusiast, 5 miles from Alder Lake, 10 miles from the quaint town of Ashford, and we are only 15 miles from the Nisqually entrance of Mount Rainier National Park. Our Campsites are "no frills” - dry camping/boondocking without many amenities. A toilet seat and bucket system is provided. Absolutely no cat holes! **Camp Site Sizes: • Camp Site #1 - large enough for two RV’s and/or four-six 6-person tents. • Camp Site # 2 - large enough for one RV and/or four-six person tents. & one hammock • Camp Site 3 - large enough for two 6-person tents. This site is the most private, however it does not have a direct view of Mount Rainier. Water is NOT available at the camp sites but there are potable water facets elsewhere on the property and a bucket provided to transport water. Electricity is NOT available, however, generators are permitted. WiFi is NOT available, however Verizon and T-Mobile customers may find they have cell service on and around our property. BEES!!! This is a working “bee farm”. If you are allergic to bees, think you might be allergic to bees or are afraid of bees, you may want to look at other listings. We enjoy sharing our love of bees. If you’d like to learn more, you can even purchase a “beekeeping mini class/demonstration”, payable as a Hipcamp "extra" or in cash money when you arrive depending on the season. PETS - They must remain on a leash and in your control at all times and please pick up after them. LIVESTOCK - We have Chickens & Turkeys. The turkeys will greet you with you with friendly gobbles and clucks when you arrive and a our rooster can seem rather vociferous as he announces each new day earlier than we expect. AND last year we added two adorable calves, Blondie and Munchie that would love for you to visit and feed them grain! When available, fresh eggs and local honey available for purchase payable as a Hipcamp "extra" or in cash money when you arrive. If you need gifts for the folks back home or souvenirs from your adventure, we may also have a selection of our soaps, honey in glass bottles, honey suckers and other “honey bee” related items available -- just ask us and we’d be happy to show you our stock. Summer of 2023 we will be offering soap making & salve/balm making workshops! CHECK IN is 2pm until dark. Guests are greeted upon arrival. Perfect for solo campers, small groups or even a family reunion!

Site 1 - Pond & Rainier View
Exactly what you need
The view is absolutely gorgeous. We got to watch Mt Rainier tuck herself in the clouds, and wake up the sunlight. We chose to do the bee tour on the day we left and it was such an amazing experience! Steve and Starla were incredibly educational and were so accommodating for us! This spot is far enough away to see the Milky Way on a clear night, and close enough to civilian life if you forgot to pack something. There's fresh water available for drinking and cleaning up. The toilet was simple and private. The turkeys and cows and dogs and cats and bees were all super friendly the whole time. I absolutely recommend this spot!

Site 3 - Secluded, no view.
We really enjoyed meeting Steve and Starla and all of their animals - turkeys, chickens, cows, cats, dogs, and honeybees (fun to put on the "bee suit" and meet the girls)! Honey is SO delicious:-) Tent camping at the more secluded site #3 was perfect for us. Very convenient to get to Mt. Rainier National Park. Only downside was road noise from Hwy. 7, but ear plugs made it much better.
