Riverfront Forested Campground

· Ione, Pend Oreille, Washington
720 acres hosted by Susan & Matt H.
After Matt’s career in lumber wholesaling and Susan’s in environmental activism, getting back to the land has meant planting thousands of trees, thinning and pruning to optimize stand health, and looking through life’s long lens with an awareness that we only care for a parcel a brief while then pass it on. In sharing our love of this place, in welcoming others to walk, play or to sit quietly in the forest, or at river shore, like a rising tide, we’re all lifted. Learn more about this land: A 30 acre riverfront forest with campsite, a fire pit and our welcome to wander alongside Pend Oreille River frontage. All enjoyed in solitude.  The 719 acre farm is operated by a community of elders who revere the out-of-doors, believing immersion in nature naturally, quietly teaches. It makes for better humans-being. Hipcamp dollars support natural means of improving soil health on the farm. Camper's choice of homemade cinnamon rolls or scones on the first morning, a 16x16' tent platform, Separette toilet, potable water, dock for fishing or foot dangling, warm-weather heated water for rinse-off (sort-of showering) and a canoe to enjoy. Controlled, A friendly four-legged companion that can be trusted to not chase wildlife would also be welcome.  *Please let host know in-advance of intention to bring a pet. We ask that no fireworks or firearms be brought or used onsite. Because wildfire risk is almost always a concern. the fire pit, equipped with kindling and dry tinder (plus water to dowse) may not always be available. We suggest campers come equipped with binoculars, mosquito repellent and this year particularly, please be tick-aware. An acceptance of risk/hold-harmless waiver of liability will be provided all guests upon booking, returned at time of visitation (or prior).

Where to even begin. Susan & Matt we’re absolutely wonderful in every way. The pastries were the best we’d ever had and just above & beyond. If you appreciate being alive, being in love , loving history and preservation of a sacred space! This is the spot for you. We can’t wait to visit again!

A slice of PNW camping heaven!
This site is a little bit of heaven! Tucked in the woods with the river on one side and a large flowering meadow on a historic homestead, you feel far away from it all. Susan and Matt, are gracious and thoughtful hosts, and Susan's baked breakfasts are amazing. We enjoyed our time here. One day we just hung out at the docks, catching fish, swimming, canoeing, and just relaxing. Would definitely recommend and hope to come again.

The peace and quiet were wonderful! The baked goods were such a treat! I love that it is a private campsite with no neighbors. The dock was wonderful to sit and read a book. Enjoyed the canoe and even our dog (Buster) went for a swim and a ride!

What an amazing experience. Susan and Matt have a lovely slice of paradise along the Pend Oreille River in Ione, WA. Highly recommend this site. Worth a detour out of the way to experience such a serene location. The cinnamon rolls in the morning were outstanding. We will be back!

Susan and Matt are two of the most amazing people we have ever met. Our stay was incredible, and it was entirely because of Susan and Matt.
