Welcome to the Misty Meadow Group Camp at Rusty Ranch. We offer 110 park-like acres in the peaceful Squalicum Valley. 65 acres are in a working, sustainable forest and have nature trails throughout the woods. The large grassy loop area consists of our 2 main sites, ALDER MEADOW and HAWTHORNE LOOP. By booking this option, you will have this whole area to your group. These sites are tucked away along the edge of the woods and above the creek in the back corner of our field . We offer picnic tables, playground area and a large group fire ring with a bbq grill . We also have a composting pit toilet. There is a wide gravel road for easy access. We hope you will bring your friends and family and camp here.
This is perfect for extended families, family reunion, small church camp-outs, small wedding or reception or any other larger gathering. We offer plenty of privacy and a place for everyone. Enjoy the mowed field trails and wooded nature trails, wander down to the creek, run and play in the lower hay fields, or just sit by the campfire and relax. Included with your booking is a large bundle of firewood to get you started. You may purchase additional bundles or the weekend bundle if needed. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR OWN FIRE WOOD. WE ARE A WORKING FOREST/TREE FARM AND FIREWOOD FROM OUTSIDE OUR AREA CAN INTRODUCE INVASIVE SPECIES OF BUGS AND CAUSE DISEASE.
ACTIVITIES: We have a playground for the kids, a well stocked game shack with lots of yard games, tether ball, corn hole boards, volley ball net and a disc golf basket. Take our self-guided tour through our tree farm and learn about the plants and animals that call this woods their home.
PRICING: The base price is $125 per night up to 4 RV/tent/family units. There is a $20 charge for each additional tent/RV/family over 4 units. The charge for the additional RVs will need to be added at the time of booking as an "EXTRA." If you have any questions as to how this works, please clarify with me prior to booking.
PORTA POTTY: For groups over 15, we require that an additional porta potty be brought in to accommodate your group. There will be a $75 fee added for porta potty rental. Our composting pit toilet is not set up to handle large groups for an extended period of time and will create undesirable conditions. Please select this option during checkout.
GARBAGE SERVICE: It is strongly recommended that you add garbage service. We have found that with larger groups it is difficult to store and properly manage garbage. With garbage service, we will bring you a large can and you can choose how many times you would like it dumped. (We recommend daily.) If you would like this option, please select it at check out under the extras.

Lots of hiking and great for groups
This is our third time to the campsites and even with our slightly larger than normal group with larger RV's there was plenty of room! We had a great time and Margaret was super helpful and brought us out an extra picnic table for our larger group and brought out an awesome airplane teeter totter for the kids to play on! This is an amazing piece of property with a ton of trails for hiking! There are great kid activities included in the welcome packet as well!
This campground is amazing! There are tons of trails for hiking and a scavenger hunt for the kids was included in the welcome packet! There is a game shack with outdoor games for campers use and it is a beautiful quiet place. Scott and Margaret are wonderful hosts!
Rusty ranch is truly a gem!!!
Rusty Ranch is truly a gem. Scott and Margaret are amazing. It is obvious that they have put their heart and soul into this ranch. My family and I plan to come back every year for our family camping reunion.
This is a great camp! The hosts were so kind and took excellent care of the compost toilet outhouse on our 5 day stay. Fresh flowers in the outhouse even! We loved the camping grounds and the walking trails are so beautiful! Can't wait to visit again! Thank You Margaret and Scott for the wonderful hospitality!
Such a great location! Easy access to town and great mountain biking. Good on-site trails to explore by foot or horse. The group site got 2 large trailers, a coach, a van and various other vehicles. Outhouse and grounds were clean and convenient!
Very spacious and private place
It was very spacious and private. The facilities were fine. Having games and playground toys was an added bonus. We had a group of three families and it was perfect for us. We also took advantage of the hiking trails. They were a little to tough for our 6 yr old but the avid hikers enjoyed it. Would recommend and stay again. And the hosts were awesome!
Rusty Ranch is a terrific find! Scott and Margaret are incredible hosts who have made their site a great place for a group to camp. We were impressed with everything but mostly the amazing trails through the woods. We will definitely return soon!
