An expanding Cattle/Sheep Ranch in progress./// Fruit, vegetables, hops, wineries, hiking,  casino, and fishing nearby. Mostly a quiet working ranch. Water Irrigation runs throughout the night at times with a low pump hum.

 Site #2 is the only Travel Trailer / RV with water and power. (Will not run an A/C. Only 20 Amp and currently shared with Site #1 Currently not listed.) Small Tent location by the pond also.

Site #3 is currently a separate listing under Greenhouse

Additional tent or car camping or RV / Travel Trailer at sites #4 and #5 ,Left and Right of the red hangar. Extension cord power available but No Water. 

Site #4 is on the gravel right of the Checkerboard pavement between the Runway and the Hangar. Set your tents up in the grass on the inactive runway and Bring your own SHADE if desired.

 Site #5 Currently has the only access to the beach on the pond. It has the best shade and sand beach area with fire pit. 

Site #6 is more private yet primitive on the back side of the hill. Site 6 has great shade in the afternoon evening. If site #2 is occupied our ability to drive into #6 will be hampered but you can still cart or carry your items to camp, this isn't a far walk.   

There is space for multiple tents at each location.  VEHICLE OR RV PARKING IS AVAILABLE ON THE GRAVEL PORTIONS OF THE PROPERTY ONLY.  DO NOT DRIVE ON THE GRASS AT ANY TIME AS YOU MAY DAMAGE IRRIGATION. The power hook ups are located near #2. No 40 Amp service for A/C yet.  Often times I have an extension cord run from the hangar for phone charging at sites 4/5.   Great views of Mt. Adams from the runway or beach area. 

There is plenty of room at the property and can accommodate large groups. Prices will vary depending on your needs. Estimated at $45 per 8 people.  PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE on any of the GRASS as your vehicle will leave imprints and potentially destroy sprinklers. Thank you!

This is also my Dogs Property and he is not leashed as he is usually my Shadow. There are also neighbor dogs that often times escape and come visit that I have little control over.  These dogs tend to have an attitude but will scare away. If you are afraid of dogs, this is likely not the place for you. 

If you wish to specifically reserve the grass runway for Soccer, Volleyball, Football, etc please reserve site #4 and request the runway for your event. $30 / 5 guests plus $5 per additional guest.  Stay the night by tenting on the runway or use it until dusk. At this time bring your own equipment, nets, etc. The runway is 100' wide. I can mow it tight with prior arrangements and we'll make it happen!

We had a great time camping at site #5 this holiday weekend! The grounds were great to roam around and all other campers were friendly too. The hosts came over multiple times to chat and tell us about the property and are. We definitely will come back again and may even book a different site. The bathrooms and outhouses were clean and maintained. Directions were easy to get to and even a quick drive to Yakima was simple.

We enjoyed our short stay at Ranching and Relaxing. It was easy to find with the well provided instructions and the host was prompt with communication when we had questions. We loved the pond and we're greatful for the on site water and the available flushing toilet. It had everything needed for a good camping night.
