*2018 update- we are not sure about doing the campsite this year. Any possible availability would not be until sometime in June and we won't  know until the very end of May.*

Pitch your tent overlooking our pleasant rippling country creek. Superb location for travelers (bicycle campers-take note!) in the beautiful Skagit Valley close to scenic State Route 9 which takes you right up north to Canada, and taking 9 north will also get you up towards the Mount Baker highway. and the North Cascades Highway. We're about a 20 minute drive to old town Mount Vernon which has excellent brewpubs and dining, the Skagit Valley Co-op, a wonderful seasonal Saturday Farmer's Market, and the Riverwalk by the Skagit River.

You'll enjoy the views of the the fields and woods also ---birdsong, and possible wildlife sightings as well! If the weather's hot, you can take a refreshing dip in the creek, or just put your chair by the water and cool your toes while reading a good book, or planning your next travels. Good for couples or solo travelers.

*This is not glamping* -- just a grassy tent spot by our lovely creek on an old, worn, but pretty farm property of 20+ acres. We're just starting out with trying land sharing to help keep the land open space, for now we're hosting only one camping group of 1 or 2 at a time.

**You'll need all your own equipment just as if camping at a campground/in the wilderness.

Best for 1 or 2 adults with a 2-3 person tent, we'll consider one child or one dog with pre-discussion and pre-approval. A small picnic table, campfire area by the creek, 2 jugs of drinking water and a small portable toilet are provided. No shower, but a dip in the creek swimming hole will do ya if it's warm enough! Close to scenic Route 9 (our little home is right by the road, but the site is away from the road and house, and tucked in the grass and woods down by the creek) *so there can be road noise at times depending on the weather and the season. We are in northwest Washington State and do get rain and it can get muddy. You may have to walk ( short walk and we're happy to help) to the site if there's been heavy rain and the ground is too soft for vehicles - or, if the weather is really horrid and you have a freestanding tent, our old barn is a possibility! Coming into our driveway there are low hanging branches and somewhat low wires driving to the site--please discuss with us if you have a very high vehicle and/or bikes/kayaks etc on top of a larger vehicle, those things may have to come off the top before you come into the driveway much and you may have to park in driveway. You drive through a small part of the horse pasture to the site which we do our best to keep clean but there's grass,weeds, sometimes mud and sometimes horse 'piles'! Currently we have two horses, and four cats. The cats love people and wander about trying to be helpful, we keep them in at night since there are coyotes in the valley. The horses enjoy a couple apple slices for a treat and a gentle rub on the face.

Absolutely NO SMOKING of any kind anywhere on the property.

Our stay at Skagit Creek, though it was short, was lovely. Upon arrival, our host Marla was there to warmly greet us and graciously show us around her large, wooded property. The first thing we noticed of course were the two, beautiful mares that were grazing in the front! After showing us around, she led us to our large campsite, far behind her house and the barn, protected in the shade right next to the creek. Such a peaceful spot, though a bit of road noise comes off the highway during the busy summer months. We relaxed that night in the quiet by the fire, roasting marshmallows in a converted old tractor wheel and watching bats zip around in the dusk. We even heard coyotes calling to each later on under the moon. Definitely a magical nature experience! And Marla was so inviting, so forthcoming with tips and things to do in the area. Thanks again, this was a great spot, would definitely stay again!

My wife and I stayed at Skagit Creekside Camp with our two young boys. The site was really well-kept and charming. Very private setting with a lot of separation between the sirmte and Marla's home. Marla was also very accommodating--even running out to get us more wood for our second night. Our kids also had a blast exploring the creek and playing on the property. We'd stay there again for sure.

We had a great time camping on Marla's property. It feels like you are by your lonesome out there because the campsite is set back about 80 yards from the house. Marla was quick to greet us as we pulled in and offered us drinking water and firewood. The creek is really pleasant and was fun to float down and we could hear it as we sat by the fire. Skagit Creekside Camp is the perfect little getaway from Seattle city life.

Our stay with Marla was great! She was very welcoming and had kindling and a citronella candle at the site for us. It was fun to walk around the creek and see the wildlife in the area, and the horses at the farm were very friendly. Loved it, will stay again!

Wonderful place to camp. Right next to the creek, it feels so comfortable and easy. The horses are amazing, and the barnyard feel is idyllic. Although it was a short stay, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Thank you to our host, who was so communicative and kind to us during our stay!
