Welcome to our tree farm and working forest. Looking for an ideal family getaway spot? With our unique location nestled in the foothills of Stewart Mt and the peaceful Squalicum Valley, Rusty Ranch offers 110 acres and easy access to much of our local recreation options and is only 10 min east of Bellingham. Our camp area is spacious and can can easily accomidate your family and even a couple of friends. Scattered trees offer shade, the large grassy areas provide ample space to roam. We were recently awarded a top FARM STAY award from Hipcamp. Our site is dedicated to "Eduction through Exploration" and we strive to provide you with more than just camping. Rusty Ranch Tree Farm is geared for families and friends to not just camp, but to learn about and experience nature and forestry. Hike the several miles of nature trails on the hillside and explore our 65 acres of certified forest. Placards on the nature trail are part of our self-guided tour and provide information about forestry and the plants and animals that call this their home. You may also request a guided informational tour for your group. Wander through the old growth groves, walk the 50' boardwalk and see the magical Fern Ridge. There are abundant wildflowers and seasonal berries to pick, as well as a variety of fall apples and pears in the old orchard available for self harvest. You can even purchase a tree to take home and plant. We also offer a roadside farm stand with fresh seasonal fruits and veggies as well as farm fresh eggs. We are normally closed Monday through Wednesday except holidays. Sites may be made available by special request. We hope you will come and stay with us for your next adventure.

Always an amazing, relaxing stay! We brought 2 horses and really enjoyed using both the arena as well as the trials. We will be back!

Hawthorne Loop
Thank you for such a special camping experience!! We had a wonderful stay. Margaret was there to greet us and gave suggestions for what to see and do. We loved the Hawthorn loop with the sounds of the rushing creek in the near distance. We also thought your outhouse was first class!

Creekside Tent Site
Scott and Margaret were very accommodating and they have a very beautiful property. Their camp sites are well-maintained and distanced from one another. I would definitely go back!
