Curley creek canyon is definitely one of a kind place ! It is not a
Camping, it is not a small spot Under the trees, it’s not a forest or a small creek , it’s pretty much all of it if you are willing to explore this huge space.
Definitely a PNW place like no other, it’s almost like if you could rent a small forest. Jerrett’s place is really big, so big you’ll have plenty of choices to pitch a tent under giant trees , multiple
Fire pit options and a dry toilet .
We camped with our van, so we parked it next to the entrance where a spacious shaded flat and clean space could
Hold 2 or 3 vans like ours . Jerrett brought us a portable chimney so we could make a fire right in front of our spot , but there was 3 other fire pit available around the property and Jerrett (that lives on site ) actually started a fire for our arrival !
If you have a tent , the domain is wild
Open and the place is quiet and wild - many birds, chipmunks and wildlife awaits .
There is also a creek, where you can spend some times on a relaxing small “beach” deep into the wood, but this comes as a reward since you have to go down a steep path to get there , there is a chord to secure your descent or to help you climb back, but be careful - this will not be accessible to everybody, but after all , this place is about discovery and wildness and this quiet water spot is an awesome “reward” .
Speaking of discovery -Jerrett was an amazing host that teaches us (me and my kids)so much about the forest, the edible plants , some medicinal properties and the story about the place . You will definitely learn something after spending some times there . Oh yeah, there is also a giant swing there where my kid spend almost an entire morning .
Overall I would definitely recommend this spot, and I hope that whoever will spend a night there will be ready to explore and go down some steep hills to discover what the place has to offer . Or just pitch your tent next to one of the amazing fire pit and relax Under the trees !
