Peaceful Farm & Gardens with farm-field views.
Welcome to our two-acre farm. Rest your eyes on the expanse of nearby fields. Spend hours watching the resident red-tail hawks or our domestic peacocks, ducks, chickens, honeybees and our lovely horses. Over all is the beautiful night sky---particularly lovely in August when we have the best view of the Perseid meteor showers as weather allows .
Awake to a country sunrise complete with quacking ducks as they make their morning journey to the duck pond for playful antics.
Set up your tent under the apple trees, or bed down under the stars.
Morning coffee or tea available on request. The surrounding roads are very popular with bicyclists due to outstanding views and reasonable grades. We are also only 7 miles from Battle Ground Lake State park, with its swimming and fishing and walking trails.
There isn't a lot of privacy at this site since the house is located in the middle of the gardens, but please let us know the level of interaction you want and if you sleep in so I keep animals in pens until you are up. We do try to give campers their space.
Do you want a farm tour, maybe some time with the horses? A scavenger hunt for youth? Corn hole games, a shared dinner over the fire? There are tree swings, a slide and hammocks for group use.
Seasonal events include:
Making apple cider from apples grown here
Soft cheese making class (extra charge applies)
Picking Raspberries, cherries or other harvesting (just enough for your breakfast or dessert!)
Baby chicks and ducklets
There is a foal expected in July! Warmblood/GRP cross dressage candidate, sire is Milky Way, GRP.
Youth scavenger hunts (please message me to request this with ages of participants, no cost)
We about 25 minutes from PDX airport.
Can be flexible about dates, I block out weekends to do my own camping, but if you need one we are not available for, message me.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
GK, who was an awesome host, immediately made us feel welcome and showed us all around her property. She let us know that depending on the camper’s preference of stay, she’s happy to let people be or engage them with the various activities going on at her farm. Sweet hammocks under giant apple trees, hawk watching, baby chicks running wild, fresh spring water delivered to site! A sweet welcome sign let us know we were at the right place, and we enjoyed our time at Summer Bliss! While the sites are on their property, it doesn’t feel like you’re in their space; they’ve created a campsite that feels dedicated to the camper.
GK was an incredibly accommodating and welcoming host. She accepted our last minute booking and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. The site was green and shaded, and included a table and chairs, lantern and a big fire pit. Situated on a working farm with peacocks, chickens, ducks, horses, cats and dogs, we enjoyed being around all the animals. We look forward to staying with GK again on our next trip and would highly recommend to others.
Pro tip: Keep your eyes peeled for the tiny fairy garden next to the site! Very cool! :)
