The first word that comes to mind is, Magical. This property of 80 acres was so quaint, and full of character. You see these great little old-timey signs all over the property. They're pretty fun to discover, especially around the train station, yes, I said train station. There's a brilliant antique train that traverses the property, actually, it goes more in a loop. The owners absolutely love this train (built by the previous owner) and they will pick you up at 10am, 2pm and 7pm and can drop you off at your designated campsite. It's absolutely wonderful and such a unique experience. My boyfriend is obsessed with trains so we tried to ride it every day we were there. There's also a little coral of critters, including some goats, two donkeys and some chicks. All were super friendly and happy for some pats. The nice thing too, about the camping area was that no cars were allowed. When u drive on the property, you check in, then park your car in the back parking lot. This was great for safety and for peace and quiet and nice fresh clean air. We ended up getting one of the lotus tent packages, which was great since we just flew in for a few days. We didn't want to bring all our camping gear with us. They offer an ample variety of tent packages to suite every ones needs. We were always met with such happy and enthusiastic hosts. These ladies absolutely adore their campsite and always want to make sure you are enjoying yourself and have everything you need. Last minute we found out our ride back to Seattle airport was leaving a day earlier than we were, so Cheryl, camp host and owner, did every thing in her power to make sure we could find our way back. She ultimately came up with the idea to rent a Uhaul van, since the shuttle we needed was full and Enterprise didn't have any more one way compact vehicles for us. This worked out perfectly and we made it to our flight with an hour to spare. We can't wait to return and stay with Cheryl and Barb! We had the most incredible stay with them! Definitely an 11 out of 10 :D

Wow!! What a hidden gem. This place won't be hidden for long, so take advantage of it while you can. Cheryl greeted us upon arrival, and gave us an amazing tour of the property. You can tell a lot of love and sweat went into this place. There isn't a single bad campsite here, each one offering a different experience in the woods. They offer full rentals, from the tents and stoves to chairs and sleeping bags. All you have to do is show up and enjoy. We got to stay in one of the Lotus Buds, and they are COOL! We felt like kids again riding the train around the property and seeing the deer run around in the fields and forests. This place is a dream for anyone from 2-95. We cannot wait to return very, very soon!

Here comes the train!The train in the station.Ferry ride to beautiful Orcas Island.Fire, book, wine.

My husband, my fur baby and myself stayed here for two nights as we wanted to get out of the noisy city for a weekend. The farm is beautiful. The owners and everyone that works there are wonderful and extremely helpful. My dog was allowed, huge plus! Also, a very family oriented campsite.

The downside was that the campsites, at least the site we were assigned, is not private at all. I could see directly into 8 other camp sites. One camp site to our right was so close I could hear the man snoring while he was sleeping. I could hear their entire conversation like I was apart of it. The camp site directly to our left was a family of at least 8. The kids decided to play some imaginary hunt game and were playing in and around our campsite for hours. We could hear babies crying at night. So if you are looking for a private quite area to camp, you may want to look elsewhere. If you are looking for a family friendly place and love interacting with your neighbors...this is perfect.

Lovely grounds, convenient location, cheerful owner, and pandemic-prevention masks made for a nice COVID-19-cautious vacation to Orcas Island. We felt so comfy and at ease that we canceled our more adventurous itinerary in favor of a longer stay; Cheryl very kindly extended our stay as needed (we were fortunate in that the site was available beyond our original reservation).

Things I'd be happy to know ahead of time:

1. Ferry Reservations on and off Orcas are more important than you might imagine. Make a reservation and arrive 50 min early, but be prepared to chill out as there are frequently delays to the published schedule.
2. If you're budgeting dollars, remember to factor in the cost of the ferry and fuel up on the mainland.
3. Firewood can be found at several residential wood stands along your drive; suggested donation for 30% more wood than the $6 bundles at the market or gas station (or the $7 bundles at the campground). Prepare with cash in small bills.
4. Shower Tokens are $3.00 for a 7-min shower and must be purchased from the Camp Host, Owner, or Employee (not to be found at the self-service/check-in area). Prepare with cash in small bills.
5. Showers are a bit unreliable (temperature & pressure) and could use some pressure washing or deeper cleansing.

Site 54 is more secluded than many of the other sites (though close to the train tracks and farthest from parking). The topography made for a nice stepped area, elevating the tent a bit and carving out a sweet spot for the picnic table. Exposure to passers-by is eliminated as the site is reached via a smaller path off of the main loop. Toilets were close enough without being too close. Nice open field one site away. Far enough from the barnyard not to smell it. Very family-focused camping scene. Easy access. Beautiful forest.

Truly a magical atmosphere and amazing venue to create lifelong cherished memories.

The train takes you around the estate with a fun stop at Grizzly Station for some fun and games.

This was a nice place to come camping. The campsites were tucked in the forest but there are also big grassy fields to play in. The sites are close to each other but it isn't too loud. Because you park in the front and cart everything to your campsite, there are no cars to wake you up late at night. Nice and quiet and a lot of fun!

Also if you do not have a lot of your own camping supplies, you are able to rent out just about everything there. Super convenient!

Perfect location for families. Very quiet, no cars in the walk in area which makes it extra relaxing. Kids loved the train, goats and chickens. Hopefully we'll be back!!

Mount Baker Farm and Campground was a perfect place to stay on Orcas. The sites were organized and easy to find yet still secluded enough to have your own space in the woods. There were enough trees to hammock and spots to tent camp as well. The farm was perfectly close enough to get into town but still removed away from the busyness. I couldn’t have asked for a better getaway for the weekend and would highly recommended the stay to anyone visiting the island!
