Our humble homestead sits on five beautiful acres of combined oak forest and wildflower prairie in a region of Washington state so renowned for its recreational opportunities that it's referred to as "Sportsman's Paradise".  We're just getting started here, but have big plans for establishing a self-sustaining intentional community centered around teaching visitors about primitive skills such as hide-tanning, herbalism, wilderness survival, and wildlife tracking; as well as important modern homesteading skills like managing a composting toilet system, growing gardens, setting up alternative power sources, and raising livestock.  We have the astounding privilege to live within just 20 minutes of the Columbia River Gorge, world-famous for its numerous fishing, wind-sports, and adventuring opportunities. This is a region famous also for big game hunting (deer, elk, bear, cougar), wild-foraging of edible mushrooms (morels, in particular), wineries, art museums, and more!  Located just a 10-minute drive from the heart of Goldendale, Washington, you can enjoy the seclusion of our land while remaining close to restaurants, bars, grocery stores, laundry service, a community pool, mechanics services, and many other amenities.  Learn more about this land: Pitch your tent in our beautiful oak grove, or in the heart of our wildflower prairie in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. You'll have easy access to potable water, a composting toilet, and can take advantage of the unique opportunity to learn about primitive skills and the homesteading lifestyle from your hosts, Danny and Sarah.  Danny is an herbalist and studies plant medicine extensively, often utilizing materials foraged from the property or from the nearby woods. Upon request, Danny can lead herb walks and foraging talks to interested campers.  Sarah is an accomplished survivalist and taxidermy artist, who teaches hide-tanning, skinning, and butchering. She has been featured on national television for her primitive survival skills, and can teach classes on tracking wildlife and tanning animal skins.  Let our homestead serve as your home base while you fish, hunt, hike, and explore the stunning Columbia River Gorge!

PROS: The location was nice and private. Sarah was a very responsive host. the animals were wonderful. Propane grill and picnic table available made cooking a breeze. CONS: We didn't realize how rough the roads into the homestead would be. My Nissan Sentra did just fine, but not appropriate for a low clearance vehicle. The pond was only seasonal and since we went in the dry season it had evaporated!

I was lucky to have the camp area to myself. I slept under the stars - no tent needed. I got the tour of the homestead which enabled me to see all the animals. It was a great spot, I liked the privacy and the picnic table area was a short walk and very nice. The bathroom is also a short walk. I’ll stay there again if I decide to revisit the Goldendale area.

We had a hard time finding the place, the town doesn’t recognize the address, so our gps only brought us to the street but once we got there, it was pretty neat and a cool experience. I’d stay there again if I’m in that neck of the woods.

Lovely and welcoming
Sarah was a fantastic host. She showed us around and allowed us to get involved with the farm. Her animals are lovely. The camp site is basic but perfect for what we needed. There is a toilet and a shower as well as a fire pit area with propane barbecue available. Sara lives an amazing lifestyle we are envious of and is so welcoming. We would stay here again and recommend it to others.

We booked last minute, needing a place to land after a late concert in the Gorge. Sarah and Danny were very responsive and accommodating, and we appreciate it!

Sarah and Dan were very helpful and thoughtful. They put up a shelter for me that helped me through an intense hail storm. And they checked to make sure I was okay.

My family had an awesome time with Sara and Danny! Not only was the site easy to find and inexpensive, we were made to feel welcome and ended up sharing great conversation and food together. The night views are beautiful in this area as well!
