Amy was very welcoming and allowed us to select out of the three sites available. We chose site #1 and although it was close to another site, still felt fairly private. Misha their guardian dog was very sweet and hung out with us by our fire. It was close to various hikes in the Olympics which made it a good base camp. The only warning I would have for fellow hipcampers is that this is a working farm and therefore there was a rooster that crowed from 4 am to 7 am every 15-20 min. So plan on bringing earplugs or being an early riser :)
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.
Ariel and her family were super kind and accommodating! The site was exactly as described and after saying a quick hi, they left us to explore and do our thing, while still being approachable in case we needed anything.
Perks of the site included use of a port-a-potty (which was very well maintained), water spigot, and a BBQ grill + firepit. This was a great landing spot for adventuring in the North Cascades and exploring the cute town of Marblemount. If you come, be sure to check out Glacier Peak winery down the road for a tasting with Lisa & Lucy.
Highly recommend this spot for a small group looking to get away to the Cascades with privacy but still wanting some minimal amenities.
