Nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, we offer private camping in the woods.  There is a  slough off of the Skykomish River that runs right through the property. At this time completely primitive, haul it in, haul it out.  Hike in a very short way to select a spot in the woods. Again, very primitive!!! No fires in the woods at the campsite, but there is a communal fire circle near the house, and an outdoor pole barn with microwave, fridge and coffee maker.  (We Washingtonians understand the need for coffee.)  It is 2 miles into town where there are several cafes and stores. We are close to rivers, mountains and state parks, as well as a ski lodge in the winter. There is also a possibility of seasonal fishing and rafting, or bring your own flotation device and life jackets to to just laze in the river.  No equipment is provided at this time. There are cows next door, and horses, dogs, cats and chickens on the property.  (So if the rooster crowing or the cows mooing will bother you, be forewarned, though you can't hear them  further into the woods.) We welcome you to our little slice of paradise!

The host was helpful and knowledgable of the property. The views along the river were great, thought finding a spot close to the parking area was a bit difficult. To find a clearing for your tent you may have to hike back into the forest. There is promise of new developments and clearings to come though, so be sure to check in with the host on new additions to the amenities!

Taking in the view along the riverbank. Taking in the view along the riverbank. Just in time for the beautiful fall foliage. A cozy hammock along the river.

This place is INCREDIBLE! There’s 3 beaches extremely secluded, very off the beaten path. We had such an incredible time and are definitely going to come back multiple times this summer whether it be just us or a group of friends. There are so many different choices of where to put your tents and your camp depending on how alone you want to be or what type of environment you want. I rather go campin here over any actual camp site no questions asked. There is no amenities but in my opinion that’s how camping should be and word on the street is it’s not going to be like that for very long. The hosts were absolutely amazing and so kind and laid back, they are incredibly nice and chill people that we definitely were grateful to meet and so grateful they gave us this opportunity to stay on their beautiful piece of land. We wish we were able to stay longer and definitely will have to make it a week long trip next time around.

Wonderful host, really pretty grounds. A number of campsites to choose from. Wonderful spot ~5 minute walk from where we parked in the woods, very private. As the description says, no amenities, but a wonderful space with a really great host.
