About Forests, Fields, & Creek-Oh My!
Stay in our mossy forest wonderland! We have over 100 acres, most of which is wooded and about 10 acres is a working organic farm. We have a wide range of heirloom vegetables, 75+ fruit trees, nearly an acre of heirloom (95 years old!) blueberry bushes, grapes, kiwi, strawberries, and much more. We may have farm fresh eggs for sale as well as organic produce. The forest itself is lovely-something out of a fairy tale with lush moss, ferns, with large evergreen and deciduous trees.
Our land is nestled at the foothills of the North Cascades, with Finney Creek running through the land and emptying into the Skagit River a half mile away. You may swim in the creek or in the river, explore our land or a great hike to a waterfall just a few miles down the road. This is an excellent location as a home base for hiking, boating, hot springs, and even day trips over the pass into Winthrop. We are located just under 2 hours from Seattle and 90 minutes from Vancouver BC. The closest towns are Concrete and Sedro Woolley-there is a most excellent gluten free bakery nearby, an outstanding pizza parlor, a great Korean restaurant, and more.
We can accommodate larger groups, please feel free to message us. We have many years of experience hosting private and public events on this land, and have some infrastructure to support a wide range of needs.
We have a few spots set aside for tent camping with drive up option, but if you'd like to camp near the creek or prefer a more private spot deeper in the forest we have many options to choose from. If a flat grassy area is more to your liking, we also have space available near to the gardens. If you do choose to camp in the forest or closer to the creek, we have a wagon and wheelbarrow which may be used to transport your belongings. Please note that the drive up sites are limited in number, and if this is a requirement for you it would be a good idea to contact us in advance to make sure one is available. If so, we can set it aside for you.
Camping with children? If you are traveling with one or two children age 6 and under, you do not need to pay an extra person fee.
Last minute booking? Because we have a range of spaces available, we prefer to greet guests upon arrival. We ask for at least 4 hours notice prior to arrival-if you would like to arrive sooner than that, please just message us to confirm that we are available to greet you before you book.
Long term stay? We offer weekly rates at a reduced cost! Have a large group? We also offer a discounted rate for multiple sites! Contact us for information prior to booking.

The vibe at Forests, Fields, & Creek-Oh My!

The grass smelled sweet. It felt like a dream underneath my feet. We were welcomed in last minute with open arms. The camping spots are beautiful. The farm is lovely. I would highly recommend this place. Thanks again guys, I really hope to fall into this dream again.
Finney Farm is an intentional community founded many years ago on the principles of "Earth First". Their mission is to educate about and celebrate all that surrounds us in the natural world. Their movement of "Food Not Lawns" is part of what inspired me to begin gardening, myself. Situated along the pristine Finney Creek, the forest is lush, offering a multitude of tent site options. I pulled my gear in (on a cart Jennie kindly provided me) about 100 yards to nestle next to a moss-covered cedar. Situated under a canopy of trees, the shade remains fairly constant with dappled light gracing the underbrush as the sun makes its move across the sky. An outhouse and hand washing station are a short walk away as well as a tent-covered cove of games and stoves to check-out, for free, and an honor system store of garden items available for sale. Chickens roam through protected sections of land where sunflowers stretch their smiley heads to the sky. This feels like sacred land, protected and loved, PERFECT for camping, taking a dip into the creek, and waking up early to appreciate the world alive outside of the tent. As a destination or stopover to or from the North Cascades, this is an ideal camping experience.
Beautiful working farm with a variety of spaces in the moss forest and in clearings toward the farm, which are less shaded and private. We stayed in a forest area that was easy to drive up to and kept us cool during the hot days (as did the sprawling creek which was a short walk away). We kept remarking that the forest was something out of a fairy tale. I would suggest bringing a camping table as picnic tables are not supplied.
Was looking for an easy escape from the city and this place had everything I was looking for. Easy drive from Seattle. Check. Quiet and private feeling grounds. Check. Shade/tree covered camping spot. Check. Easy access to a swimming hole. Check. It was quite nice to have our forest camping spot with access to a large open field for star gazing. Didn't use many of the amenities but nice to know they were there. Would definitely recommend staying.
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Finney Creek Farm. Between lazing by the river, searching for secret swimming holes up the creek, the lush and private camping (walk-in camp at the creek trail! highly recommend!), and the warm and welcoming hosts. We truly couldn't have enjoyed it more. We felt like we tricked everyone with such gorgeous and private camping on what would have been a packed Labor Day Weekend anywhere else.
Pro tip: Bring a camping table, candles or fairy lights, and bug spray!
