Welcome to our little slice of heaven on the sandy banks of the Skagit River! Our 3 spacious and private campsites are on approximately five riverfront acres adjacent to our family farm of 43 years. About 65 miles north of Seattle and just minutes from I-5, get ready to nestle in under the towering cottonwoods, watch Canadian geese fly overhead, dip your toes in the sand and experience Peace Like a River. Take a walk along miles of dike, launch your kayak in the river, cast your line and fish the glacial waters, or just soak up the tranquil beauty. This is your landing spot to explore all of the Skagit Valley, from the San Juan Islands to the Cascade Mountains. You will find epic hiking, biking, foodie destinations and endless opportunities to explore the natural beauty of nearby mountains, lakes and saltwater.
Each campsite site is grassy, partially shaded, level and furnished with a 8’ picnic table. Potable water and recycling/garbage is located conveniently close by. Our customized port-a-potty is clean and well maintained. Sites are designed for one recreational vehicle (20' or less) or 2 tents. No solid fuel fires are allowed in Peace Like a River sites (1,2,3). However, campers can bring their own propane fire pit to use and gas grills.
Our family has great respect for the beauty and power of the river. Care for safety must be taken on the river edges as they are steep in places and the glacial water is very cold, has a strong tidal current and hidden undertows. Life jackets are highly recommended and we discourage swimming.

Quiet and spacious
Quiet and restful weekend by the river. Stephen and Sharon welcoming and responsive to all our questions. We stayed in site #3. Sites 1 and 2 were unoccupied during our stay so it almost as if we had the property to ourselves. Sites are more than adequate and much larger than a typical state campground. Looking forward to a return trip soon.
What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy all the lovely gifts-a sandy beach along the River, large roomy campsites, big, tall trees that gave lush shade, and wonderful hosts!! The large fields are mown to provide roomy sites, and still make it feel like we were in a field of tall grasses and flowers. Best decision I’ve made this summer!
The location was great. The spots were large enough and spaced apart enough that you don't feel on top of each other.
The hosts and fantastic. They are kind, communicative and informative. They really do want to makes everyones stay wonderful. They take good care of their sites and it shows.
This place was lovely. The spaces are large enough and not right on top of each. The hosts were personable, informative and kind. They take very good care of their sites. I wouldn't have an qualms about referring friends there.
Had a lovely weekend at Peace Like River. There flowers and eggs waiting for us when we arrived on the site picnic table. The garbage area was clean. There is water and honey buckets. We enjoyed the rope swing! Lots of great breweries and restaurants not far away.
Love this place!
The loaction was fantastic, everything was clean and tidy. The best parts were the fresh flowers and eggs when we arrived. And our kids LOVED the swing. Who am I kidding? So did I! :) We used it as a base camp tp go and explore the area, so much to do! Stephen and Sharon were super responsive and helpful, answering all our questions about the area. Would definitely go back!
Stephen & Sharon are wonderful camp hosts! The gift basket with farm fresh eggs, Skagit Valley touring info and the mason jar w/fresh fliowers from our hosts garden set the tone for our wonderful stay. This hipcamp is a jewell! Wonderful morning bird chorus, tranquil pastoral setting and friendly neighbors.. The location was ideal for exploring the Skagit Valley and Whatcom County. We launched our kayaks in LaConner for a fun paddle around Goat Island & explored the Skagit River estuary. Enjoyed local produce,, wine & seafood from the Snow Goose Market about a 10 minute drive from our camp site. Started our mornings with great coffee & a breakfast power bar from the drive up Coffee Shack - 5 min drive. Hiked up to Fragrance Lake off Chuckanut drive and enjoyed an "Oyster Dome" kind of view and a wonderful swim. Lunch at Taylor Shellfish and another paddle on Lake Whatcom. So much still to explore. Can't wait to return!
