We have a Lobby stuffed with books, puzzles, games, and outdoor lawn activities, and we have a popcorn machine! The cute town of Eastsound is a short 5-minute walk away.

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!
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.
