We stayed on Shane’s land as a basis for exploring the northern cascades and it ended up being a great location. The hosts greeted us on arrival even though we came in late in the evening and made sure our camper was set up and we were oriented. We opted for the spot next to the garage because that’s where the RV hookup is, but the property is huge with no visible neighbors and you could easily camp further out with more privacy. Despite how far out you are away from civilization, there’s a cell tower on their property and you’ll likely have service. Also, keep your dogs close ‘cause wildlife is active out there :)
After finding all of the local campsites full, we opted to book Sid’s place instead. The RV site itself doesn’t have much privacy as you’re parked right in the driveway with a road behind you and we were never shown where the toilet was (we ended up driving into town to use the bathroom). There’s great mountain views and farm animals on site, including a friendly dog that our dog was quite fond of. The water and electrical hookup was a bonus, but didn’t justify the $40/night. The water on the property is useful for washing but probably not drinking. We’re easy-going campers that use Hipcamp often, however, this wasn’t the experience that we expected. I should mention that it’s possible that tent camping is different as it’s not in the same site as the RV.
Such a great little farm at the gateway to the Olympics! We stayed on Mary and Pete’s land a night before hiking Mt Townsend and had a lovely stay. There’re spigots for water and a Port-a-potty around the front. Though we brought our gas grill, there’s a shared fire pit on the property, as well. Thank you for a great stay on your farm, Mary and Pete!
