A quiet stay on whidbey island

Sanctuary Woods is a perfect location if you're looking for a spot secluded in the woods for a nice quiet evening. The tent camping is tucked away beside the house, where it can easily accommodate smaller tents (2-4 persons) and even though the main house is footsteps away, you feel secluded and in a private space with trees and the brush. Be careful while walking around in the beautiful woods beside Kate's place- we noticed a bit of poison ivy you might want to watch for and avoid walking around with sandals/open shoes. We did not see this in the campsites, but near the woods. The RV space on Kate's land can easily accommodate a larger sized RV as well- our van being 16 feet long and we probably could've parked another right behind us. Kate, the owner was lovely- she recommended an event at the local library, as she knew I was a photographer. In addition, she was incredibly welcoming and kind upon arrival. The spot Kate recommends down the road is a great place to spend some time if you're looking for a picnic table to play some cards or eat dinner. There is no bathroom on-site, but Kate mentioned getting one for her HipCampers soon. If you arrive before then, the nearest bathroom is a 5 min walk to the picnic area, where a porta-potty was located. My husband and I slept so well as it was so quiet- all you heard were frogs croaking in the night- no road noise- just the noises of nature.

Great place to stay for the night. The host, Kate, was very welcoming and had many great recommendations of things to do in the area. Lake access is just a short walk from the property.

Private and secluded even with the host on site. My main recommendation is to bring a table of some sort if you are car camping. There is no picnic table on site, but there is one down by the lake.

Great camping experience at Sanctuary Woods and Lake. The surrounding area was so quite and peaceful the only noise I heard were birds singing and the breeze rustling through the trees. My host, Kate, greeted me upon arrival and was very helpful getting me situated with parking and electrical hook-up to her home. This property is secluded and cell phone reception (AT&T Mobility) was spotty when I had to call the host due to my GPS losing it's signal.
Special note to RV'er's - The property can only comfortably accommodate a campervan or Class B motorhome (not B+.) Be sure to bring at least a 100 foot heavy duty extension cord and a 15amp adapter for the 30amp of power from your rig. All and all a lovely and welcoming experience.

We had a great time staying at this campsite. We parked near the house and it was just a few yards into the trees for a quiet, peaceful place to set up our tent. It was well shaded and comfortable no matter how hot it was outside. A short walk down the road there is a small park at the shore of the lake with tables and a port-a-potty. It was a very relaxing stay, and we definitely recommend it.

Pros: good location in the middle of island. Nice flat cleared space. Possibly close to the lake (didn't visit). Single site, so no hipcamp neighbors. You can see deers

Cons: no(or sporatic) cell signal. Strange multiple animal noises that kinda freaked me out at first, sounded like distressed pigs, and barking deer or something like that, I have no idea. Can hear neighbors if they're doing stuff(generator, music, etc - but didn't bother me since it was a short period of time). Nettles on the entrance of the site can irritate your skin if you touch them, beware!
