About Whidbey Island Sheep Camp
CLOSING FOR THE RAINY SEASON - November 1, 2017 - April 1, 2018
We are a family owned and operated Grade A dairy farm on Whidbey Island, committed to sustainable agriculture practices and the production of fine sheep milk cheeses and pasture raised lamb. Located on the lovely eastern coastline of Whidbey Island, our farm has been in the family for three generations. With forest, pasture, ponds and meadows, the farm provides a diversity of high quality habitat for livestock and wildlife. Our family’s goals are to nurture the land, our family, and our livestock through the use of creative, sustainable farming practices and the production of high quality sheep milk cheeses and pasture raised lamb. The main campsite is located near our cheesemaking facility, in the middle of our farm, and is large enough for several tents. There is a shared outhouse, fire ring and shower for everyone to use. No camp fires will be permitted during burn bans.
You will find plenty of hiking, biking and accessible beaches nearby, as well as a thriving new generation of farmers and farm products available. (Be sure to try ours!)

The vibe at Whidbey Island Sheep Camp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Amazing!! My girlfriend and I had to opportunity to stay here, and we couldn't be happier. After the beautiful ferry ride to the island, Lynn greeted us and quickly gave us a tour of the area. The farm has forest trees, pastures of sheep, and private beach access. Our camping area had running hot water, a sink and table for eating, a VERY clean outhouse, and a shower looking over the forest trees. There is a field for playing games, and a fire pit for evening relaxing. In the morning we were treated to fresh cheese samples from the farm, and we got to watch Lynn in the cheese making process. Such a cool experience to see a family so passionate about their land and their farm, we will definitely be back very soon!
If you're looking to a place to relax, beautiful walking and great local market I highly recommend this farm. But what makes really special is the care of the owners Stan and Lynn. I also did not expect to have an open shower that overlooks the trees...
Beautiful farm with access to quite beach. Campsite is very open - community feel. If you want something private this is not the campsite for you.
Running hot water for shower and sink. Outdoor shower is on a hill and you get to look out at the trees. Fitpit available but didn't see a grate to cook on.
Well maintained property. It's a great campsite if you're visiting whidbey!!
So, so lovely! As previously noted - 10/10! Our hosts met us as we pulled in and we're so hospitable and friendly! Wonderful people. Very nice open sink/kitchen patio, with hot water, even, and the outdoor shower! So nice to be able to do dishes with hot water, in their stainless steel sink. Better than any shared kitchen space we've seen. Even invited us to try their cheeses, though after normal hours. Every single one is AMAZING, and has been a treat to have along for the rest of our trip (so much yum - the spreadable ones make every sandwich heaven). Open parking space/small meadow clearing allowed ample space for 3 to 4 groups to feel private and separate. Our rooftop tent setup worked well here. Lots of trails and area to explore, with gorgeous water views. We can't wait to go back and explore more, and connect more with Lynn and her husband!
Peaceful camping with lovely animal and nature sounds. Composting toilet VERY clean. Shower very clean though hot water was hit and miss. Great dishwashing station. Very nice camping spot. The path to get to the beach was a little adventurous even for our teenagers, so we just settled in and relaxed instead. Wonderful hosts and stories.
Lynn and Stan's property is a wonderful homestead that provides a great weekend away camping experience. They both are fantastic people who love to share their property and life with others, they are inviting and very kind people...with amazing cheese.
The campsites are close to one another, and best used for a group. But, if you are okay being 50ft away from other tents, then it isn't a problem for you! It is really nice having your own table, running water, shower, and outhouse all close by. It's also great being close to Langley for a quick run to grab food or hang around town.
The absolute best part about this location is the beach. Not only is the hike down adventurous and beautiful, but we had the beach to ourselves for as far as you could see. That is nearly impossible to come by.
The pictures are accurate for the most part (it seemed like the photographer was more interested in taking pictures of his girlfriend than the property haha).
You should stay here, it was a great experience overall.
Lynn and Stan are wonderful, welcoming hosts. They keep a clean, smoke-free, family-friendly camping area that was great for my three young kids, my wife, and me. Our campsite was flat and grassy, making it easy to pitch a 6-person, freestanding tent. The outhouse was very clean with toilet paper provided, the outdoor shower and sink are really nice touches, and my girls fell in love with Billy the resident dog (who played fetch with them for about an hour). I highly recommend Whidbey Island Sheep Camp - we plan to return there in the future.
