Dan Porter Park is just through the trees off the driveway and offers a great playground for the kids. Plenty of flora and fauna to enjoy. Lots of deer, eagles, rabbits, hawks, owls and other wildlife around. We currently have Great Horned Owls nesting in the trees around some sites, and we've even seen a few babies during their flying practice. Seasonal edible berries in abundance. Sites are within driving/hiking distance of lots of outdoor activities. Water and toilet on premises. Less than a mile from the Clinton Ferry Terminal. Perched just above Washington Hwy 525 with easy access to everything. We are situated close to several shops and eateries. Langley is just a 10 minute drive, there you will find shopping, food and entertainment. No car? No problem....Whidbey has a free public bus system to get you up and down the island. 2 cars? We have extra parking by the main house. Come see the wonders of Whidbey and rest your head!

I camped at Foxglove with my five kids about two weeks ago. Named I assume, because of the abundance of flower around the property. It was right off the Ferry terminal and easy to get to. We had planned a three-day backpacking trip, but the weather reports around western WA were less than spectacular, and there are few worse things than backpacking with wet teenagers... So we started looking for a place to car-camp.

The parks were full, we couldn't find any affordable cabins for six, and somewhere along the line we found Hipcamp. We rolled the dice and picked Foxglove because of its location - which is great if you're coming from the south.

The Hosts were very polite and eager to make sure we had everything we needed. There was plenty of wood for camp fires, and we borrowed an axe to split more. The view was quite nice, there was potable water at the entrance, and a port-a-potty just close enough to the sites. Note: If you're going to use the on-site water (it was good), be sure to bring containers for filling when you drive in, it's not a short walk to the water spigot from the camping area. You’ll also find nearby, a convenience store, gas station and restaurants.

This is a 17-acre piece of property with a rough gravel road cut in for access to the three sites - low clearance cars may not make it. First looks are a little deceiving (doesn’t look like a camp site) but continue driving past the house and up to the view where the sites are perched. From a section of the camp area, there is one neighbor’s house within view, but it’s in no way obtrusive and the location feels private. The three sites don’t have much privacy between them however, and they need to be leveled for good tent placement. The spots are new, and the Hosts are working on this, I think it will turn out well. Since we were the only campers there, we were able to spread out into two sites, and walk the whole area.

Most of our days were spent exploring the island and included a walk on ferry trip to Port Townsend. The property was easy to get back to, and we slept well after a full day of activity. Cell coverage was good enough to watch a movie one night, and after that, the stars were beautiful.

We will return, and look forward to seeing how Foxglove grows.

Thank you.

Great spot + so convenient.

Camped for 3 days and couldn’t have been happier with the spot. The campground was clean and self explanatory. It’s a blank canvas which we enjoyed since we were able to make it exactly how we wanted it.

The hosts were hospitable + welcomed up once we arrived. They also offered us drinking water which was on their property which was super kind.

Overall this spot is an unseen hero for a weekend trip. Close to the ferry and the town but once you drive up to the campsite, you would have no idea how close you were to everything.

The bench + table was a great surprise since we forgot a table. Foxglove LaneOur little 2WD ford made it up the trail. Depending the the weather, you may want to catch a ride in a AWD / 4WD.

The view is BEAUTIFUL! Dusty grounds (but hey, that’s camping), great fire pit, and easy access to the island Ferry. The fresh water is located right next to the hosts house, so you might want to drive from camp, but it’s easy to fill up (bring lots of water jugs!). The only down side to this spot is that it’s a little loud and people will ride up to the top in trucks and atvs, look around, and then head back down the hill. A little disruptive - but close to what you’d experience at a public site anyway. The location is so pretty - it’s worth the visit.

Thank you Bria for coming to stay at Foxglove Lane. We apologize for the disruptions during your stay. We have addressed the “traffic” with the kids that were up there and hope it will no longer be an issue. We hope you come again if you make your way to Whidbey.

Convenient, secluded, spectacular views, and the host was great. Provided all the wood I needed, offered help if I had questions, then left me to enjoy the view.
I will visit again!

My husband, three year old son and two adult friends stayed two nights at Foxglove. The views were spectacular, bird watching was great, very peaceful and quiet nights sleep.

The proximity to ferry was a plus, but you feel very secluded in the actual camp area.

Walkable to a kids playground - we drove around but it’s walkable.

Host were attentive but left us to enjoy our stay.

We will return again soon!

Very close to the ferry terminal, you can hear the horns in the morning. Right off the main highway which was a little hard to turn into because of the ferry lineup. You drive up a gravel/dirt hill which I would highly recommend not slowing down on if you’re in a fwd because you can get stuck, easy to backup and try again with more speed. The campsite was at the top of the hill, 3 sites with a common center, you could see all three site but enough space you don’t hear each others conversations (so long as one group isn’t yelling). All gravel/dirt where you pitch tents which isn’t the most comfortable but fine for a night. Beautiful view over the trees of the sound and city.

Firewood was there and since it’s relatively all tree around you there Was ample kindling and logs to find anywhere. Sites say up to 6, but I wouldn’t push 3/4. It was two of us and a dog and felt a little restricted. Portopotty (smelled well maintained) and trash bin located right at the top of the driveway hill so a minute walk from either of the sites. The host greeted when we arrived and offered water down by the main house, very but we had a few gallons.

Overal good for a camping night for fire pits and stargazing. Not a lot of options to explore on-site and watch out for all the weeds, we were attached immediately by these spiky vines and tall blades, I pulled most out where we were walking but 2 days later my hands still hurt. One of them caused bumps, burning and swelling the next few hours. Again your camping, it’s rustic, not a big deal but something to watch out for in that area.

Saw a rooster and bunny at the bottom of the drive on the way out :)

We are so happy y’all came to stay. We are always working to improve the sites and will make sure to get that stinging nettle backed up if possible. We hope you come back to see what we get done in the future!

This campsite was great, it just needed to maybe be leveled out a little better for tents. Also the weeds and nettles should probably be cut down.
Other than that this site was pretty great- awesome view of Puget Sound and the Cascades! They also provided plenty of firewood for us. The porta potty was clean. The water was easy to get at the bottom of the hill and just drive it up to the camp site.

Amazing view, especially for sunrise! My friends and I loved staying here overnight. Our hosts supplied us with some firewood and a chiminea, as well as a picnic table and a porta-potty. The property is up the hill and off the main road, but there is still some road noise. It wasn't a problem.
