This is for site 1, a back in or drive in site suitable for tent or cartop tent campers  or rigs up to 35', maybe a smidgen more, nearest to the big cinder block pit.  Best for limited mobility campers.

*Covid-19 info.  Camp sites are spaced anyway.  Shared bathroom has extra wipes and spray. 

Welcome to Elijah Park! Our tiny farm (2 acres on this site!) grows roses, rehabs horses, and raises chickens and miniature call ducks.   A lovely, friendly peacock strolls the grounds and is relatively happy to be fed bits of chips or raisins. Treats for him can be provided upon request.  

Hammock(s) under the tiny but old orchard provide relaxation, fire pits bade you to linger watching the sun set.  August provides you with a stunning view of the Perseid meteor showers, weather and sky clarity providing.  Corn hole game can be set out upon request. Great space for yard games.  Front yard has tree swings.

In-season activities may include cider making, cooking with produce from garden, harvesting a pumpkin, smelling the roses (we have about 50 young bushes). Skills or crafts on request  may include  a candle-making experience or scavenger hunt or a child-friendly pine-cone bird feeding hanger.  Soft goat cheese making sometimes is an option when fresh milk is available ( obtained off-farm), you start it and come back to finish about 12 hours later for a soft cheese.  Let's face it, making French rustic bread ought to be on the list, too, beacsue it is GREAT to toast over a fire with salted local butter. 

A great getaway from the city, yet close- by, you have a  slight sense of isolation even though the house is nearby the sites.  (We are not a commercial camp ground!) 

This is a working farm with animals and tractor sounds at random times.

Bathroom is bucket with seat and eco friendly gel with hand sanitizer in a tent.  Serviced upon request and daily. 

We clean the yard before company but sometimes still you might need to watch your step from critter droppings.

3 night stay maximum

No pets allowed, sorry - we like  animal people best BUT due to our own farm dogs, small fowl and cats and coyotes, it is safer to leave your pet at home.  We can provide you with a dog or cat to snuggle if you miss yours.  The border collies especially adore kids.  The cats just hope for anything they can get. 

Optional activities (you must request them in advance to ensure I have supplies on hand! Not everything available all seasons.)  Donations support physiotherapy and care of rehab projects!  

Donation based projects:

Marbled paper art making (youth-friendly/focused)

Monster-gone magic spray (kids)

Pour-paint art (weather-dependent!) 

Pinecone bird feeder making (currently out of pinecones and unable to source more)

Squirt gun painting (under trial still! LOL )Cheese making (usually start one day, finish the next, can be a bit slow/boring for kids)Face mask or sugar scrub making (take it home and use it with a good shower handy!) 

Flower based Wax Melts - harvest rose petals and fragrant plant material from our garden to use!

Hard cider making - you get a grower and bubbler to take home to continue making your own.   It's a quick process if you don't need shelf-stable hard cider.  About 30 minutes to set it up and depending on  weather or home temperature, a dark place of 55-80 degrees at your home is required to finish the 2 week fermentation - play with flavors or make a classic apple.  21 and over activity but kids can learn some history and about where root beer came from!   Hard juices and root beers have a great history from when we had no refrigerators! 

Nearby places to visit: 

Pull Caffe, wood fire roasted coffee! 

Mouton and Lucia falls (hiking or wheelchair friendly views)

Battle Ground Lake

Rusty Grape Vineyard and cafe

Scented Acres Lavender - seasonally open but  2 miles from here.

Longer loops:  Historical Columbia River Gorge Falls Loop HWY to Hood River - try the fruit loop rout, stop at apple, pear, lavender and flower farms, Solstice Cafe, the food cart at White House (the cider flight and wines are worth time, too!)  and Apple Valley BBQ for some amazing NW flavors. 

Bonneville dam can be a fun place to stop and see the fish in the park as well.

For sure end your loop tour at Timberline Lodge, one of the most amazing historical lodges in America.  Sit and enjoy a hot cocoa or indulge in their fine dining - everyone is welcome equally to enjoy the historical building.   Finish your loop via freeway back to our area. 

Ape Caves - on a hot day, they feel SO good and are beautiful!  Great if you are traveling back to Seattle. 

Or try Portland's famous food cart scene - 4th and College street is our favorite but all are worth the time. 

Elk Rock Garden

Washington Park's Holocaust memorial - beautiful.

My friend and I had an amazing time here! The hosts were very welcoming and the animals were very friendly. We made cider with them and it added so much fun to our trip! :) I know that I’ll be returning to this place sometime in the future. And I also know you’ll enjoy as well!

Staying here was awesome! Our 5 year old wanted to go camping but we wanted to start off with something close and easy, so this was a perfect fit. They greeted us and showed us around and were super nice and welcoming. The kids had a great time checking out all the animals, we had a nice fire going to toast marshmallows and make s’mores, and we slept in the car no problem. We’ll probably come back when the animals have their babies!
