Quiet spot ~30 min from bellevue
We enjoyed our short stay at Time by the River. It was a little difficult to unlock the gate but once we got it opened the road was well marked and we could easily find the camping sites. The gravel camping pad was level to park our camper van and well spaced from each site. We enjoyed looking at the cows at the nearby pasture and bird watch. Very peaceful stop before going to Bellevue.
All around, disappointing
We couldn't find the place. When we plugged the address into our phones, it took us to their neighbors (I just checked on Google maps on my computer and it does the same thing). There is no sign, and their driveway address is between two address numbers (55thousand block) that don't match up with theirs (47thousand block). They also reference a "golden gate" in their description - but it was open when we came, so we couldn't see it.... when I texted the host for help, she just kept texting me back the address, was unwilling to help. So, it was pretty maddening.
My daughter - after an hour - found it after talking to the neighbors. The instructions specifically tell you not to talk to the people living there, so we didn't know whether we weren't honoring that request - but were desperate at that point.
And, it's a ridiculous price for an open field with no toilets, tables, etc. The host told me people "dig catholes or go to Safeway" when they have to poop. It's an open field. You can either dig a cathole at the river (bad practice) or dig a hole in view of your neighbors. All around, a disappointing experience.
Great place to stay as it seems very dialed. It was nice to hear all the animal on the farm and I will definitely stay again. Risa was very open and communicative.
- thank you again
Enjoyed the river!
We loved the peaceful beautiful river! The sandy beach all the way to the middle of the river was very comfortable, reminded me of an ocean beach. We floated on our air reclines, while our dogs dug holes on the beach. We felt very safe and secure in our camper while listening to the crazy coyotes every night. They were far enough away, no issues. We picked blackberries and I made cobbler in my cast iron skillet over the campfire. We want to come back next year with a group.
This place has so much potential, ie rent horses, paddle boats, and many other possibilities. But it was still great as it is.
It’s a lovely place and the river is beautiful. Lots of coyote singing at night.
I do think that it’s overpriced due to the lack of amenities offered. An outhouse, water outlet, and trash container would help justify the price.
I also didn’t like having to share the beach with various day trippers who just showed up and took over the whole place. Especially those with vicious little dogs.
Diamond in the rough
A huge part of me wants to leave a bad review, just because I want this little spot to my self.
It’s definitely a diamond in the rough. No glamping frills, but that’s not why we go camping. Beautiful large mostly grass airfield (watch out for prickly blackberries and thistle) Plenty of room for a group. The river was absolutely the highlight. We brought our kayaks, and did a ton of swimming. Will definitely go back.
