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.

FRIDGE & ICE: Need a place to keep your food and drinks cold? Need ice? We now have a fridge that you can use.  You can also purchase bags of Ice as needed.

EXTRAS: Want a special treat? We offer wild caught Alaskan salmon fillets for BBQing. Forgot something? We keep a supply of extra items. Farm fresh eggs, snacks, drinking water, ice bags, S'mores, assorted snacks, as well as camping necessities like bug spray, small propane bottles, etc. See our list of EXTRAS at check out or look in your WELCOME PACKET when you check in. Don't see it? Ask we may have it.

If this site is booked on your desired dates, check out our other listings. If your group is small, we may still be able to accommodate you in one or both of our other sites. Please contact me with any questions prior to booking.

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!

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!

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!

Beautiful areaRoom for campers and multiple places to set upFun toys!
