I had a wonderful time and would highly recommend BelFish Farm to both individuals and families. Amy and Scott are warm and welcoming, and really go out of their way to make everything positive and enjoyable. They put up a pavilion cover that blocked the rain, were very generous with firewood, and made sure I had warm water when I wanted a shower. The permaculture (permanent agriculture or living sustainably off the land) farm was fascinating, with chickens, ducks and rabbits (babies too!), and the tour of the farm and learning about permaculture was very interesting. Everything was clean, the campsite was great, and the hosts were wonderful people.
In the words of palpatine-dew it
So we were a group of 5 all between 19-21 with a lot of stuff between us and a very large tent ( very easily able to accomodate 6+ people and their combined supplies including food) and we booked for the 29th to the 31st ( memorial day weekend) and site 1 was perfect for us. The site was a bit out of the way without being too far to be practical and the trees held up well to the hammock we bought. Keep in mind when you place your tent, though, that there are definetly roots in the site and the occasional rock in the soil ( because rainforest) which (unless you have padding and thermal blankets, handwarmers, etc in your tent) isnt exactly going to be comfortable to sleep on. Obviously it being in a rainforest youll do well to bring some bug repellent too, since there are your fair share of ants and mosquitos and such, maybe the occasional spider, but we didnt encounter anything particularly annoying or dangerous so the bug repellent and due dilligence when it comes to zipping the tent door will be all you really need in that department ( as well as stuff to keep the ants from making a meal out of your, well, meals, which you probably dont want to lay around, anyways). Another thing we would do if/when we go here again is bring some chairs for sitting around the fire ( whjch was awesome) since there arent any logs to sit with that we could tell, and a cooler for food and cold drinks. The tools we were given to light fires with were a flint and steel tool and a long necked propane torch which were really easy to use, and it is absolutely worth the 10 dollars to buy unlimited firewood. Its all you can burn, not just 10 per stack, so that 10 in addition to supporting the farm really goes a long long way even with other people using the other campsites ( and the hosts were super attentive about making sure theres wood and that you knew where it was). Absolutely get the unlimited wood. would 100% recomend. It gets cold at night even in the summer and the ground will suck warmth right out of you if youre not mindful to have something between you and it and a source of heat and light nearby.
Speaking of cooking, that was a great experiance too. What we couldnt cook over the fire we were able to use the grill and tools provided really easily with assistance from Amy-she really went the extra mile to show us how things worked ( it was a gas grill which we werent all that familiar with and we were cooking burgers, hot dogs and some onions over it). We really appreciated it. One thing we did encounter though was that soot can get on your arms and hands if you're not mindful of where your putting them, and we maybe should have packed some prep utensiles ( cutting knives, a cutting board/plastic/something like that, alcohol whipes and a cloth/rag to sanitize and clean the area, etc.), but even that was a minor thing. Overall, We had a really good time.
The bathroom was definetly as described or maybe even better. The toilet is a compostable one, so it has a little lever that you need to press beforehand when you use it ( there isnt running water inside it specifically so it doesnt really flush like you might expect) and that you press again when your done to close it. Scott was really helpful explaining how things worked ( with the bathroom and a lot of other stuff) and overall the bathroom did the job. The one thing we ran into was that the sink doesnt actually have hot running water that I could tell-they fill one of those giant blue jugs like you see in office coolers and dispense the water through it. There is hand sanitizer and soap and paper towels/flannel type rags there too though, so that plus the cold water was sufficient for what we needed ( which did include handling raw meats) and looked really nice. It was overall a really well cleaned maintained and executed bathroom that was more than fine for the time we were there.
As for the hosts, Scott and Amy were both super attentive and helpful while still giving us our space and letting us be which we all really appreciated. They were both super responsive (especially Amy) even before we arrived, and were really nice to talk to and interact with when we needed help or were just doing whatever and happened to come across them. We did run into some slight confusion about our stay ( we booked until the 31st but they got us mixed up with someone leaving on the 30th or something like that) but that and anything else we needed or had questions about was handled really fast and we enjoyed being around them and their dogs, bunnies, goats, chickens and other animals when we got to see them. Theyre really friendly and approachable and are really all about giving you a hand and helping you out where you needed it and making sure your settled in.
Overall we hope we get to go here again at some point, because it was absolutely worth every penny we spent. Would reccomend 1000%. PLEASE do yourself a favor and give this place a shot, you really wont regret it.
Forested camping spot with a fire ring a mile from Darrington. Near the host's house and farm, with lots of chickens and bunnies to admire. Spent a very quick night but hosts were accommodating and explained the compost toilet and their permaculture farm. You can hear the highway from the camping spot but not a noise issue for us.
Hidden gem in the north cascades
What a fantastic spot! If you're expecting a manicured KOA spot, best move on - this is a small, but productive family farm, so you're likely to be visited by the chickens and the cat, Jackson, as you sit around your fire. Scott and Amy are fantastic hosts - willing to chat and share to the degree you want, and show their gardens and soon-to-be-chicken run (might bring a hammer if you want to kill time helping Scott out). This was an unexpected surprise - we'll come again!
Camping at belfish farms
We had a fantastic time staying at Belfish Farms! Amy and Scott were excellent hosts and were extremely helpful in making sure our stay was comfortable. I would definitely recommend their farm to anyone looking to stay in the area!
Our stay with Amy, Scott & Edith far surpassed our expectations! We felt very welcome from the very beginning, and were given a private, secluded area to setup camp. We camped in a private clearing, but were close enough to the restroom, farm & car so we didn't feel fully stranded. The property is nuzzled up right at the base of Horse Head Mountain, and the view of the snowcapped mountain is spectacular, especially at sunset!! We were able to take showers, set up fire in the designated pit, and play with their sweet dogs during our stay. There are plenty of trees for hammocks too! In the morning, Scott and Edith gave us a tour of the farm, introduced us to their bunnies & chicks, and provided recommendations for hikes in the surrounding forest. We checked out Darrington and some spectacular waterfalls right after leaving the farm, per Scott's recommendations. Be mindful that the campsite is a short walk away from where you park your car, but a wagon is provided to tow your items. We absolutely loved our stay and getting to know the family behind Belfish Farm!!
