We are a somewhat remote 20 acre off-grid farm/homestead specializing in raising cashmere goats, with a couple of dairy goats, too. We have two campsites on the place. This site is midway up the hill from the first site, with a view of Wild Bill Mtn through the trees. It's a smaller site, room for only one tent, with a picnic table and outhouse nearby. There is a small fire ring with a good supply of firewood provided.  Perfect tree placement for a hammock in the shade close by, too. Our farm is next to National Forest land with miles of hiking and mtn biking available. We are an hour and a half away from Glacier National Park, and about an hour away from Flathead Lake. There are numerous lakes, rivers and streams all within an hour drive from here. Outdoor recreation paradise!  The forest service road coming up here is a bit rough, and the road to the campsite is, too.  A low slung car can make it with some fancy driving, but SUVs or pickups are the best vehicles to have.  Something with a higher clearance than a sedan is good.

Pine Needle Cashmeres is situated on a delightful and quiet slice of forest just outside of Kalispell, MT. We stayed here as a stopover between Flathead Lake and Glacier National Park. Ann and her husband maintain a working goat farm, replete with chickens and a veggie garden. They also live off grid! The road up to the farm is in pretty good shape. If the weather looks like it might rain a lot, you may want to consider going with a 4WD vehicle. Make sure you follow Ann's directions. They will get you there better than Google Maps. Upon arrival, Ann greeted us, gave us a quick rundown of the place and introduced us to her goats and lovely farm dogs Rocky and Cloud. The dogs take their jobs guarding the animals and farm pretty seriously so no dogs are allowed. That being said Rocky and Cloud are the sweetest teddy bears around once you make their acquaintance. The campsite itself is situated down below the farm, out of sight. It's around and up the hill from the first campsite, and better situated to one or two tents. We parked at the bottom of the hill and walked our equipment up (a short 2 minute jaunt). The campsite comes with an impeccably clean compost toilet outhouse, picnic table, and is secluded from the other site and the farm. We pitched our tent, made a lovely meal and enjoyed the quiet, peace, and lingering golden hour in a grove of pine trees and aspen trees. In the morning, we followed Ann's directions for a hike to the nearest summit. The trail was well marked with white flags and delivered gorgeous views, even when the area is in summer wildfire season. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this campsite to anyone looking for a relaxed stopover or a peaceful respite.

Setting up campAtop the property's hike! 30-40 minutes puts you on the nearest summit with views of the surrounding areaAnn and her husband also keep chickens for eggs. They are beautiful!Making dinner at the conveniently located picnic table (trash cans provided on-site as well for easy trash disposal!)

This site has everything you need and more -- fire pit with wood and grill rack, compost toilet, flat open low grassy area for your tent, fresh well water up by Ann's house, and lots of quiet and privacy. The dogs can be intimidating but Ann met us and got us all oriented and introduced. Clearly a lot of attention has gone into the set up and maintenance of the camp.

Ann, the host, is very nice and the directions that she provided were accurate. It is a bit far away from the larger towns, however, the place itself is good. The road could be hard to drive on for a sedan or low clearance car.
Overall, we liked the place!

The site was just what we were looking for. It was pretty remote and located on Ann’s lovely little farm. We got to meet the dogs, the goats, and even got some farm fresh eggs to take home!

Ann was super quick to respond and gave us very good directions. There is no cell service once you get close so be sure to take a picture of the written directions.

The site itself was very private from the first site, we couldn’t even see the other folks. There was a well maintained outhouse and they left us plenty of wood for a fire. We were able to see so many stars at night. Perfect for seclusion and peace.

Be aware that this is off of a dirt road and if you have a low car it could be a little iffy getting up the road on the property to the site. I did it in a Honda Civic but had to do some creative maneuvering.

Thank you for staying here! We are in the process of fixing up the road so cars can get up to the site now. Within a week it will be drivable for anyone.

Ann was a great host! She was great with communication and making sure we were taken care of. The site was beautiful and had everything (a toilet, picnic table, and fire ring). It was the perfect location for us as we were on our way to Glacier National Park. Would definitely come again!

As a first time user of Hipcamp, I was super worried at first of how it’d go. Fortunately, Ann is a great host! We ran late because we were taken a back way to the campsite, but still made it there, and Ann greeted us first thing. The campsite was secure (in a gated area) and secluded.
We got the additional hike to the rocks, which was well worth the additional money! The view was fantastic and Ann taught us about the plants and other surroundings, telling us her own personal stories and making us feel at home.
Overall Ann was a great host and the site was very safe and fun to stay at!

Beautiful property, really sweet farm animals and dogs, and kind hosts. Unfortunately I was unable to stay here because my small car ('09 VW golf) bottomed out on the unpaved road to the campsite and literally would not drive any further forward. I had to back up and out. Would be a nice, very secluded place to camp if you're driving something a little higher off the ground.

Ann was such a great host. Between lack of cell service and other obstacles we ended up being a few hours later than we had anticipated. She waited up for us to show us around camp which was super nice. I would definitely recommend you stay here if you’re in need of a place in the area!
