Nestled among giant Hemlock trees, this camping spot is outfitted with rustic table and fire pit with cooking grill. This site also has a camp box containing basic details about the farm, local restaurant menus with addresses and some things to do while in the area. You will also find a travelers log book where campers are welcome to read and add their story! LED lighting is provided for additional light as well as campfire roasting sticks. Two Adirondack style chairs are ready to keep you comfortable next to the fire.
Site includes Porta-loo in a privacy tent with toilet paper and is located 30' away for privacy.
Lots of birds, lots of animals. Fall asleep to hundreds of frogs croaking, listen to coyotes in the distance, or get a serenade from "Hooty" our resident Owl.This site can support 1 large tent, 2 small tents or is well suited for your tree tent or even both! Drive up access is available for unloading with parking 50' away. Malaney Creek Farm has miles of trails with trail-head signs to keep you pointed in the right direction. Our trails are great for hiking, mountain biking and perfect for a pet walk. Lots of foraging opportunities year round. Secluded and quiet with a private gated entry. Less than a mile down the road is public access to Spencer Lake so bring your water craft, paddle boards and kayaks along! (Washington Discover Pass Required at lake)
A short walk to a day use area and you will find a large grassy field with picnic tables, games and hammocks to relax on.
There are lots of seasonal foraging opportunities on the farm from mushrooms to berries, nuts and floral greens. Year round campers are welcome to visit the chicken coop near the main house and pick a couple eggs for your breakfast (not available when birds are nesting to hatch eggs).
This is a 114 acre conservation farm. We ask that campers pack it in and pack it out, tread lightly and respect the wildlife by not only giving them space but also following good housekeeping to deter encounters.
We give our guests their privacy. Just check in at the main house, we will show you to your site and leave you be to recharge your batteries with peace and quiet.

The vibe at Hemlock, 124 Acre Farm Wetlands
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
My husband and I had a perfect weekend in our Tentsile Connect at Hemlock Campsite. We accidentally surprised Tracy and her husband because we booked it so close to our arrival, but they took our arrival in stride and set us up with a fire ring, shovels an extinguisher and toilet option. The property is gorgeous and there are plenty of opportunities for hiking and exploring. Very little mosquitoes/bugs (we only used bug spray once). Highly recommend this campsite and hosts!! We will be coming back!
We had a fantastic time here! Tracy and Dan were super welcoming and hospitable hosts. They greeted us warmly and gave us a good overview of the farm, our site and the trails on premises to explore. The site was private and well kept. This was a perfect Olympic Peninsula getaway for us. We will be back for sure!
My husband and I stayed for one night at the Hemlock site. Came in expecting a standard camping experience and got much more! Greeted by friendly hosts upon arrival and escorted to the campsite. Checked out the camping box on the table with some info about the area and the farm. There was some instant coffee, firestarters, a candle, and a log book. Also some wine bottles with LED lighting and roasting sticks and Adirondack chairs were a nice touch. The large campsite accomodated our 6-person tent with plenty of room to walk around. Was happy to discover the hammocks and games in the picnic area, like corn hole, frisbee and bocce ball. We explored the trails and are excited to see what the future improvements are like.
There was another couple camping at the Trillium site and the sites are so far apart that you can't even tell there is anyone else there unless you happen to walk the trail that passes by.
We were told there would be some starter wood at the site and were happy to find plenty for the one night we were there.
Woke up around 4am to many many birds chirping and happily welcoming the daylight, and of course roosters too!
We will definitely be back soon!
Hemlock is in a large, open area among an abundance of ferns, Oregon grape, maples, alder, and evergreens. The site is well shaded, cool, and inviting. Tracy and Dan's preparations were impeccable from the furnishings to the firewood--absolutely stellar hosts. Rather than compete for crowded sites in public campgrounds, I recommend their farm as a destination or as a great jumping-off point for exploring south Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula.
