This is a well shaded campsite in a young forest where we allow guests to drive right to their site with their personal RV or trailer. There are no toilets available, so you will have to provide your own camp toilet of some type (pack it out). Situated in a gorgeous park-like campground, there are beautiful views of the mountains and forests here in western Washington. We are close to Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier and several lakes. There are walking trails all around the site. Picnic table and fire pit with grate supplied. Many trails have a view of the Tilton River, which can be reached via a challenging 3/4 mile trail. Sites are on 10 acres planted with many different species of trees that are about 25 years old. There is fairly good screening between sites. N0 power. Water is NOT available in the site but there are hydrants elsewhere on the property. We do not have shared spaces, such as restrooms, and will insist that you provide your own bathrooms. Absolutely no cat holes! Bring your trailer or RV to The Arboretum on our Christmas tree farm. Widely spaced campsites provide plenty of private space. Just nine sites available, so we are never crowded. Drone flying is allowed so don't be surprised if you see some overhead or on the drone course. Check out our other sites!!

Lovely stay! private camp
Fantastic location. Camped in shady grove which looked like the best spot to me! Plenty of sunlight to charge our solar (airstream basecamp) while still having tree coverage to retreat with chairs during the afternoon. Fire ban in effect so no fire but the ring & grill would be perfect! We work remote on the road and able to obtain service with a Mifi & booster antennas. Would go back again & recommend!
Secluded and spacious area!
We had a great stay at the mini camp! You are pretty secluded and have plenty of space. The site included a new picnic table, fire pit, walking areas, and access to a great trail that leads to the river. Barb and Terry were very kind and delivered more fire wood to our site. We will be coming back!
