Please note, this is HASRSTINE ISLAND, NOT HERRON. I haven't gotten Hipcamp to fix this yet. There is a bridge to the island and the coordinates offered for site are correct. Also no bathroom set up at this time. Beautiful peaceful forest with trails, a great spot for elopements (elopement package separate) and a beautiful meadow with a small ringed fire pit for one site and a movable fir pit for another.. Maximum 2 sites in 5 acres. 70% of the Island is forestry but sound DOES carry a long way so it's not dead-quiet. Harstine Island has a BRIDGE, no ferry! One hammock is left up in the forest and there are places for your hammocks to be hung, as well. There is one spot on drive that is between two trees so you need to go slowly and be careful, 9 foot wide at wheel base only. Please take note of this. Easy for cars, a bit tricky for some trailer/RVs. Photo and video can be seen on webpage. Types of wildlife include barred owls, a nighthawk usually in summer can be seen at dusk, western alligator lizards, warblers, robins, crows, wrens, a bear has visited before (lucky me heard it 'woof' at me, bear didn't appreciate my singing), deer, others have seen red fox in the past but we have not been so lucky. Birder's paradise. one lovely review calls it a great place for forest bathing! Puget sound is SO clean here with a diverse salt water life. Orca and Humpback have been spotted nearby. You can track them at Orca Network or Puget Sound Whale Sightings on Facebook. Both '22 and '23 have seen orca making rounds with the incoming tide going under the bridge and circling the island! There is Jarrell Cove state park and a boat ramp at Latimer's Landing Boat Launch few miles way. There is a great local market at the community center Saturdays from 10-12 in the summer. No water view, this is heavy forest off a gravel drive into privacy. No power, no water, pack it in pack it out. Please be careful of deer when you are driving in and observe island speed limits. Familiarize yourself with the personal fire extinguisher at the site.

Almost don’t want to say how much we loved GK’s property because we want to make sure it’s available next time! Beautiful meadow for camping with a gorgeous perfect short PacNW trail for forest-bathing. Really thoughtful and unexpected amenities, such as a solar lamp, bubbles, and citronella incense to keep mosquitoes at bay. The lovely neighbor next door offered a rainbow of eggs from her chickens. GK was extremely welcoming and responsive to all our needs - really grateful for the support and excellent communication. This property technically holds two camp sites, and it might have been uncomfortable or at least less intimate if the other site had been booked, but fortunately for us it hadn’t been. We were fine with no toilets or water, but you can get water from the Jarrell Cove state park. We spent our days at Fudge Point, which has three parking areas with short, half-mile or less hikes through beautiful ferny forest to get to each parking area before you get to the beach (1.5 miles if you park at the first parking area). A magical stay and we will be back!

The owls are there.
This is a peaceful location, a bit of a drive, but with the directions from the host, easy to find. He gave me the address of a neighbor and that got me very close. There are at least two places to camp and positioning is pretty easy. The host provides a fire pit and toilet and at least one picnic table, might have another in the future. I enjoyed my time there very much.

Great relaxing get away!
We loved the place. For the most part it’s very quiet and private. There is a house or two simi close but really don’t hear anyone there. We very much enjoyed are stay.
