I had a wonderfully relaxing weekend tenting and walking the trails with my dog. The horses were beautiful and everyone was so nice. Absolutely perfect!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Malaney Creek Farm! The property was quietly and peaceful with wonderful hosts. We wanted for nothing, having everything we needed in our clean camp site.

We had a great time here! Very clean porta potty, great yard games onsite with plenty of private space. The host was friendly and communicative. It’s also close to Olympic National Park and we did the Staircase hike which was great.

A perfect site! Quiet, secluded, and easy to get to, and the porta-potty was the cleanest one I've probably every seen. Well thought out setup.

This is a lovely piece of property! The campsite was spacious and private, and it was wonderful to have the large covered area. The host was extremely gracious as well. We would definitely camp here again!

The site was beautiful, well made and maintained, and not close to other sites. Dan and Tracy were super nice and accommodating (our camp stove didn’t work and Dan came down to check our stove and to lend us his!). There are lovely trails around the property, hammocks everywhere, and friendly horses and goats to pet. Definitely will come back!

Tracy and her husband were wonderful hosts. Creekside had everything we could ever want in a camp site : space, privacy, awesome firepit, covered picnic table and hammocks. The farm has trails to explore, farm animals to interact with, and communal games. All in all we loved our weekend here and agree we want to make this an annual spot to visit!
