This off grid campground is a great camping spot if you have a big group of family or friends just wanting to hang out around the fire (if there is no burn ban), enjoying each others company, relaxing, decompressing and sharing stories.  Leave your worries behind.. enjoy nature.  

The entrance to the Campground is over the bridge where the creek is. There are 2 picnic tables you could use, a fire pit, a bbq grill and an outhouse. The picnic tables are not spread out (see photos), they're on a specific location. On some of the spots, you will hear the sounds of the creek. 

We will only book to people who know each other (family & friends), so there's good bonding time.  Maximum guests for a site is 4, so book separately if you have more than 4 people in your group. You book, but when you arrive, you pick your spot.

~~PLEASE Message Me First Before Booking, otherwise it will be Declined. I will need to communicate with you the Check in and Check out time for the particular days since it varies due to prior commitments.~~

Up the hill above the campground, we also have our other listing - 3 off grid cabins "The Mini Forest Cabins" for rent.

The back of property behind fence is DNR, so you know the land is private.  

You can do a little hiking if you wish (thus the name).  It has some large walking paths and smaller trails scattered about, also some open meadows and is at a peaceful wooded setting. 

You are welcome to check out our goats too if you want (they're in their enclosed space).  Property is all fenced in, a place where your fur buddy can run free. It is a pet friendly place, but be mindful of other guests and their pets if any. 

Our campground is about 4.9 miles from the 'Granite Falls Fish Ladder'.  Visit this beauty at Mountain Loop Highway if you fancy another little hike.  The 'Lime Kiln Trailhead' is around 7 miles. The trail is full of amazing views and history.

Our place is only about 45 minutes from Seattle.  Why not pack your tent and sleeping bags then drive here after work, then leave in the morning. The Mini Forest is waiting for you!

Grace was a very welcoming host! She greeted us at the gate and showed us to our camp site. The site itself was perfect for our short stay, we stayed one night and then did a hike in the nearby area in the morning. We enjoyed hanging up a hammock on nearby trees and exploring the trails within Grace’s property. There’s no running water or flushable toilets available, this is stated in the listing. There is an outhouse present with toilet paper, which was appreciated! The campsite area was quiet overnight, keep in mind there are animals nearby that make noises in the morning/day (chickens, roosters, goats, horses, etc) so they may wake you up in the early morning if you’re a light sleeper. We mostly heard the roosters crowing in the morning. This wasn’t really an issue with us since we were planning on waking up early anyways, but just something to keep in mind.

All in all, Grace was a very nice host and the campsite was in great shape! I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone wanting to get away!

Grace was such an amazing host, what a sweet angel! The property was beautiful, it felt like you were far out of town camping! Plenty of room with a BBQ, big firepit bathroom and picnic tables. Running little stream going through as well. Everything was well maintained and we had such a lovely stay. Thanks Grace!

Had a change of plans and booked this spot last minute. The site was beautiful, peaceful and private. Very close to granite falls and some incredible hiking The host, Grace, was waiting for us upon arrival and very accommodating. She closed the gate for us so my pup could run around and enjoy the space too. Thank you Grace!

It was amazing! Right when we got there Grace came out and was very kind and joyful! She walked us down to our campsite and was very brief about the rules and such so we could get to camping.

Grace was great! The property was very nice and well maintained. A bunch of level spots perfect for setting up a tent, as well as fire pits, logs for chairs, picnic tables, and room to walk right by a ravine.
