HIKE IN PRIMITIVE CAMPSITE in a nature sanctuary.  Access trail is primitive, at times steep.  About 2500 ft from Parking.

Experience a genuine OFF-GRID adventure, as there is NO CELL RECEPTION on the property. The 2 mile access road is gravel, and at times steep. AWD/HIGH CLEARANCE vehicles are highly recommended.

This campsite is in a breezy mountain hollow next to a babbling creek with a raised 12' x 16' wooden platform. Included is a 5 gal jug of water, food prep table, propane stove with fuel, firewood, private fire pit, and a compost toilet. Access to community outdoor kitchen with a fire pit and extra supplies.

As we are an active native plant nursery and wild plant sanctuary, we ask that all campers stay on designated trails. **There are rare and unique plants being propagated throughout the property.** We also adhere to a diligent pack-in-pack-out, leave no trace presence, and ask all guests to be mindful of their impact as well.

We hope you will connect with nature and enjoy this remarkable forest time and time again!

Owl campsite is borderline glamping! The level tent platform is big enough for your largest tent. The fire pit is located across a picturesque wooden foot bridge and the wood is included! The hike in is medium to difficult at times but the campsite is totally worth it. I would definitely stay at the owl site again!

We had a wonderful stay!! This was the perfect combination of remote camping with some very thoughtful amenities -- the platform, the kitchen setup, and the campfire / wood made such a difference in making our time enjoyable. The woods are beautiful and communication was easy! We even drove in at night and were able to find everything without a problem. Thank you, Obed Forest Gardens!

This campsite was great! The hosts had everything prepared and the area was so inviting. This place is a hidden treasure! I am looking forward to booking the same site again! The hosts were very helpful with any questions I had. Great time.

Very charming space for those in the backpacking mindset. From the parking area the curated space has whimsical trails to the shared gathering space, and from there through the hills to the individual sites. As in backpacking, be sure to bring just what you need and wear shoes/sandals you're comfortable with on a trail. Intentional and thoughtful details are evident throughout the whole space.
