📅   WE ACCEPT STAYS OVER 1 WEEK…feel free to make multiple booking requests. :-) 

☀️   If you are a RETURNING guest, please reach out to us before making your booking request for the best rates and availability.

👉🏻   At this time, our RV-only campsite can accommodate:  a maximum of 5 people for a standard reservation (up to 3 adults), a maximum of 9 people with the rental of both hookups which can include up to 4 adults plus children (to equal 9), and a maximum of 2 vehicles.  All RV’s must be self-contained.  No Restroom - No Shower - No Sink.

🛑   Please Note…due to privacy concerns, DRONES ARE NOT PERMITTED at any time on our private property. 

🏕   We are nestled between the Padilla Bay Interpretive Center and the lovely town of Edison. Across the road from the unforgettable Padilla Bay, sit back and enjoy our alpacas and the bay views while watching for eagles nesting nearby.  We offer full hookups, basic WiFi, an outdoor kitchen area and a fire pit for our guests.  You will find our site unique as it is privately-gated and we are only allowing for one camp guest at a time.  As our guest, you can rest assured that your privacy and safety are important to us.  *For a full description of each space at Bayview Alpacas, please read through to the bottom of this page. 

Are you interested in visiting for the day?  Pack your picnic (don’t forget your bottle of wine!) and spend the afternoon reading, painting, watching the wildlife, or taking in some rays of sunshine at our 3-acres site.  Meet our alpacas, watch the sun set, and head on home!  To make a reservation, simply send us a quick message and request a reservation online.  If available, we can often accommodate you with 1 hour notice.  Day trips are offered only when guests are not currently camping so availability may vary.  Cost for the afternoon is the standard nightly rate and includes the use of our outdoor kitchen area and our WiFi.  If you would like to use our bbq, patio heater, and propane fire pit there is an additional $10 charge and starter wood for the fire pit (if there is no burn ban) is also $10.  Check in is 2 pm or later and our strict check out time is 10 minutes after sunset.  No groups over 6 please (unless it is all one family, please ask) and all other House and Hipcamp Rules apply (including no parties, loud music or fireworks).  *Tip:  Stop in at Slough Foods in Edison Wednesday-Sunday and ask them to help you put together a charcuterie board.  If you desire spirits they offer a special selection and are always happy to give suggestions on pairings!

There are endless things to do in our area…exploring the lovely Skagit Valley has so many possibilities!  Venture to Edison to enjoy some local restaurant favorites and sample some homemade cheese, artisan bread and organic blueberries after taking a stroll through Smith and Vallee Gallery.  Walk or bike the Padilla Bay Trail just minutes from our home and then explore the beach at Bayview State Park. The Padilla Bay Interpretive Center is a must see when visiting.  Anacortes, LaConner, and Camping World are also a short drive away.       

Stay with us April 1- 30 and visit the annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival (a spring favorite that should not be missed!), only 10 minutes from your site.  Bald eagle-watching season, a month-long celebration in January, brings many visitors looking to catch a glimpse or a photograph of these majestic residents.  

Exploring the islands makes for a fun day-trip with the Anacortes Ferry Terminal just 30 minutes from your campsite.  For guests seeking to explore via car or by foot, detailed ferry information will be sent in your “Upcoming Stay” message along with a few interesting places to visit. 

If hiking and mountain biking are on your list, there are many places close by to explore. Over 60 miles of trails can be found at Galbraith Mountain near Bellingham to get you started. For those who are up for some seasonal skiing or snowboarding, rise early and enjoy Mount Baker or Stevens Pass, both just a 1.5 to 2-hour drive.  As you will be the only one here camping, you may safely leave your gear at the site on our privately-gated property.   

Traveling with family or friends and in need of an extra RV hookup?  We have one additional set of hookups that can be added to your reservation.  Please inquire if you are interested in this option.  *At this time, our site can accommodate:  a maximum of 5 people for a standard reservation (up to 3 adults), a maximum of 9 people with the rental of both hookups which can include up to 4 adults plus children (to equal 9), and a maximum of 2 vehicles.  Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need assistance with adding this to your reservation.  

Bring your bikes, your kite, your guitar, and your walking shoes.  There is much to do in our Evergreen State!

Skagit Valley is a farming community.  While we hope your serenity won’t be severely disrupted, you may hear tractors, road noise or chickens early in the morning.  You may also hear or see people.  We aim for you to have a peaceful and extraordinary stay so please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your visit more comfortable.  

*Is this legal?  YES!  We are following all local and state codes and laws.  Tax rate confirmed by DOR.  

**HOLIDAYS:  We have a 3-night minimum stay for holiday reservations which includes Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day.  Please reach out if you have any questions about your dates. All Hipcamp and House Rules apply during this time including No Parties, Loud Music or Fireworks of any kind.  

***Please note that our cancellation policy falls somewhere in between Hipcamp policies. If you have any questions or need to cancel, please reach out to us. Our cancellation policy is as follows:

If you cancel at least 30 days before your check in day and time, you’ll receive a full refund (minus Hipcamp fees). If you cancel at least 1 week before your check in day and time, you’ll receive a 50% refund (minus Hipcamp fees). If you cancel within 1 week before check in, there will be no refund.

The Details…

Campsite:  This site is mostly flat (leveling required) and consists of a crushed rock pad surrounded by lots of room to drive in, back in, turn around, and bring your toys.  It allows for electrical, public water, and sewage hookups.  There is also grass and cedar chips in/near the site.  Your RV door will face northwest featuring views of the bay, the islands, and our alpacas.  Our residence is further up the drive providing you with additional privacy.  You will have a large campsite area and an expansive west-facing field to spread out.  The outside kitchen area is yours to use as well with rental of the bbq and patio heater covering propane use.

Fire pit:  Centrally located and just in front of the outside kitchen.  There is a picnic table, a removable grill for cooking, some firewood for your use (more available for purchase if needed) and 4 chairs.  If there is a burning ban during your stay (or if you prefer this over wood), we do offer a propane fire pit as an ‘Extra’, which is included with the bbq/patio heater rental.  🔥 *All fire pit fires must be kept BELOW the top of the enclosure.  ALWAYS have the garden hose charged while enjoying your fire.  Someone 16 years old or older must always be present to monitor and/or extinguish your fire. 

Outside Kitchen:  Featuring a Weber bbq with a side burner (an oldie but goodie available as an ‘Extra’); small refrigerator; hot plate; stainless steel table for cooking/serving; 2 tables for dining (both make a great desk); a patio heater (available as an ‘Extra’); a water hydrant.  NO sink and please bring your own utensils and cookware.

Extra Hookups:  Is only offered as an add-on for our guests and allows for extra electrical, public water, and sewage hookups.  This area is mostly flat (leveling required) and consists of grass and cedar chips.  Depending on how you would like to park and the size of your RV, using these hookups may partially block your view from the outside kitchen.  It is still worth it though, in our opinion, to be able to travel with your family and friends!  :-)

We loved everything about our two night stay!!

The hosts put so much care into creating this space. The amenities—hookups, outdoor kitchen, furniture, fire pit, Wi-Fi, landscaping, etc—we’re all top notch.
It was super easy to park and level our large travel trailer.

The huge lawn stretches out to a gorgeous view of the water. The sunsets were especially magical.

The hosts were exceptional—responsive and thorough communications, friendly and an all around joy to talk to.

This was our first Hipcamp experience; we found out how amazing it is to be in a private location with no other campers around. So peaceful!

Last but certainly not least, the alpaca girls were an absolute highlight of our road trip. They were so stinking cute!!!

Highly recommend!

The land and views are beautiful! Alyssa and Chris were very welcoming. The first day they welcomed us but gave us time to settle in. The second day, we wanted to pet the Alpacas so they came down from their house (which could barely be seen through the trees) and told us all about the Alpacas and other stories while we pet them! There’s also a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen!

So incredible. If you love nature, not being in a crowded campground, beautiful setting…. This is your place! Eagles, alpacas, deer… All close by as well as an amazing view. Wonderful kitchen. GREAT internet (not like at an Rv park where they say they have internet and you barely can check your email). If you have the chance… stay at this amazing place :)

Wow, what and amazing view, and the alpacas were outstanding; such curious, sweet animals. The owners were so kind and generous with their time teaching us about the alpacas. I will definitely be booking time there again. Great WiFi too with full RV hookups!

We absolutely loved our stay at Bayview Alpacas. Alyssa and Chris both greeted us upon arrival and were both very welcoming and sweet. Very communicative throughout our stay. My 11 month old daughter loved watching the alpacas every day and was happy to be able to pet them as well :) Hanging out in the outdoor kitchen was great. We enjoyed our morning coffee with the beautiful view of the bay and all the birds chirping in the background. We highly recommend staying here and we hope to be back again soon.

The site is amazing! Great views, huge private space, awesome kitchen amenities (Games and binoculars included), an amazing fire pit with a grill over it, wildlife all around, close to LaConner for a nice dinner if you don't feel like cooking. It's an amazing oasis. Alyssa and Chris are super nice and super respectful of your space. We're definitely going back.
