Pitch your tent next to the farm pond. You may see ducks, swallows, kingfishers, herons and many other visitors. I even had some otters the other day. It's very quiet and peaceful here.    There is a row boat available for rowing around. Although the pond isn't as full in the summer as in the winter, you can still dive off the bank on the deep side. 

I am developing another camp site in the woods, still near the pond.

The house is visible from the  pond campsite but not the one in the woods. Depending on the season, some fruits and vegetables will  be available for purchase. Small campfires are allowed as long as there isn't a burn ban on which is common in the late summer months. I will have some fire wood available for sale.

You may visit the sheep through the fence but are not allowed to go through any gates.  I will  be happy to give a short visit for petting and learning about the sheep for a fee of $10 if I am able to arrange a time for that. This year I have 12 adorable lambs.

The beach is at the end of the road. Guemes Island has lots of beachcombing. Guemes "mountain" has nice hiking trail with a dramatic view from the top when the weather is clear. 

The Guemes ferry leaves form 6th St and I st. in Anacortes and ruins frequently during the day. The schedule and fares can be found on the Skagit county website.

Fun place next to a beautiful pond. The kids were super happy to look for frogs, visit the farm animals and take a trip to the beach.

Sequoia's farm is beautiful. The campsites are well maintained and surrounded by fruit trees. The farm is very close to the General Store and the ferry which made for an easy stroll for coffee in the morning. We had a lovely stay.

Lots of space and privacy! Sequoia was very nice, and let me use an outlet to charge my air mattress. The camp site was very pretty, next to a pond. Not a lot to do on Guemes Island, but it sure is beautiful :)

Had a fun night camping experience at the place. The place had a beautiful pond with a lovely and quiet view. The island has one general store, so it would be better to take your own stuff yourselves. We initially had some difficulty lighting the fire because all the time wood provided by the host was wet due to rain. Would suggest to keep the wood in the shade. Would have been good if we could get in touch with the host to pet the sheep. Over all it was a very private and serene experience perfect for a weekend getaway.

The pond site was great. Nice and quiet spot to relax for a few days. The general store nearby has fantastic food and the park on the NE side of the island was great for paddleboarding.

What a charming place! This was our first trip to Guemes and it was such a lovely spot to stay. The farm is so charming and in a great location-- easy walk or bike ride to the shore or the general store. Loved that there was an outhouse to use! We had the woods site and it wasn't big enough for more than 1 tent, but Sequoia helpfully suggested some alternatives, which worked great. My kids loved the friendly sheep and the pond-- both boating and swimming.

Great cute camping spot. We had the whole place to ourselves. We had a bit of trouble finding the place but other than that it’s been great.
