**we have closed the sawdust toilet for fall and winter. There is a bathtub with hot water available still**

Nestled in Greenbank Washington on Whidbey Island. Our 15 acre farm is just starting out... farming hemp and cultivating lovely veggies are in the works. 

Seasonal fruit like Blackberries, Cherries, Apples and Salmon Berries are in abundance between July-September. Lots of wildlife roam our open fields and wooded surroundings. Bald Eagles, Red Tail Hawks and Barn Swallows fly over head while Quail and their little babies run around the property. We are visited by many deer and the occasional coyote (they are afraid of us, so you don't have to worry about them hanging around).

We have 2 permanent farm dogs. One old lovebull named Homie, he sleeps all day inside and a 1 year old Bernese Mountain dog named, Socks. Occasionally, our dog friend Dewy the Boston Terrier comes over from next door. We are a family with 3 kids, Grandma and a best friend living on the land, so you may see us working the field, building a structure or just laying in the stargazing hammock circle. We have no problem giving you space or you can come hang out, we love meeting new people and have tons of tips about Whidbey. (Like, the blueberry stand in Freeland, Mutiny Bay Blues, is DELICIOUS. We can let you know if the stand is open and where it is or you can find them on Instagram.) 

 Fern Gully is 2 minutes from amazing sandwiches and cold Topo Chico (sparkling mineral water) or a bottle of wine at Greenbank Pantry. In the same parking lot, you can grab some delicious tacos at Molka Xete Mexican Kitchen. 

It’s a 6 minute drive to South Whidbey State Park there you'll find great hiking along the coast. 

Just 5 minutes to Lagoon Point County Park where you can fish and watch for whales. 

The always awesome, Greenbank Farm is 4 minutes up WA-525, there you can find Whidbey Pies, food, wine, cheese, art and great hiking trails with fantastic views of the Puget Sound, as well as a large off leash dog park.

Fern Gully Campsite #1 is located between one of our grazing pastures and the Alder woods. This campsite is an easy spot to pitch a tent and has enough parking for 2 cars. Enjoy the plethora of seasonal wild berries and watch the deer stroll through at this site.

Fern Gully campsite #3 is in a private and peaceful untouched forest setting. Rest among the moss and birds in over an acre of beautifully wooded land. The walk in does have a small hill down and back up, but nothing intense. At this campsite you are most likely to see Great Horned Owls or other forest dwelling friends

Campsite #2 is hugging the edge of the towering Evergreen forest, but is just enough outside of the tree line that you can enjoy the sun and look over the farmhouse and land. There are plenty of native Pie Berries and Salmon Berries during early summer months and large blackberries later in the summer.

Fern Gully is an absolute paradise for nature lovers! The location is so beautiful and has a bit of everything. There were multiple campsites to choose from, all containing their own unique features, from a secluded woodland site to an open level site perfect for RVs. We loved exploring the hiking paths and collecting the rare and coveted native blackberries that made for fantastic hand pies the following morning for breakfast. The owners have converted the old horse stables to truly unique places; a saloon belonging to the resident extremely friendly barn cat and a beautiful open air bath house where you can soak in a hot bath while watching the barn swallows swoop in to feed their babies nesting right above you. The pets on the property were so sweet and we couldn't get enough playtime in with their Bernese Mountain dog Socrates and their two new baby kittens. We truly can't recommend this peaceful place enough!

Fern Gully was awesome! Everyone was super friendly, and our spot was great. Lots of options for places to camp on the property, and we really appreciated all of the amenities that come with it—firewood, water, bath house, etc. Definitely recommend staying here! Very central on Whidbey Island so it was really convenient as a base camp to explore. And incredibly scenic. We camped for 3 nights with our Bernese mountain dog and had a blast!

Really chill place to camp and relax! Morgan and Katie were really friendly and welcomed our group when we got there. The property is really big and each camp site is quite a bit apart so you really can't hear or see anyone and feel like you are in your own cozy home. They have fresh well water and portable toilets for those you like to rough it a bit :) They even supplied us with firewood! We had campsite #3 and it had a beautiful view of the whole property!

What a wonderful stay! Easy to find, and a great little farm with everything you need, including wild berries everywhere. Several deer sightings, and once a snake! The hosts were wonderful, and in the evening we all gathered around the communal firepit to roast marshmallows and cuddle kittens. There is also an incredibly floofy bernese mountain dog named Socks who loves attention

If you're in the mood to "rough it" a bit then this place is great. The hosts have given a great twist to creature comforts finds natures campouts. We joined them for a group camp fire under the stars. Insightful life conversations and comedic laughter. Although fairly new to Hipcamp this ine will surely become a winner as they grow.

Thank you Morgan, Katie and family for the wonderful hassle-free camping experience.

This was our first Hipcamp experience so we didn't quite know what to expect, compared to camping at a national park or forest. Overall we had a good time; the hosts were very friendly and laid back and the site was a nice farm just like the pictures. The camping spot we got was more private than a typical park campground, but at the same time it definitely felt like a farm and not a forest - not good or bad, just different.

A highlight was that the neighboring farm's kids were playing outside and invited our 4 year old to play along. They had a great time together!
