We invite you to camp on our 117 Acre farm. We have a very large lawn and this spot is away from the house, there is a large area that you can pitch a tent anywhere, it's close to the garden area. You will spend the night listening to the birds, and star gazing at night.

(small incline from parking to access the site, it is also next to the fire area) Please refer to the pictures and where you would like to camp. It will be based on availability.

The vibe at Camp in my Beautiful Yard
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Lisa was an awesome host and we really enjoyed our night on the farm. If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful campsite just outside Lynden this is it. Lots of areas to pitch a tent, large fire pit area with chairs.
We enjoyed our night here! We choose Site 1, which is pretty close to the RV that is available for rental (so if you're looking to be isolated, this would not be your best bet). It's less than a minute walk to the fire ring, and wood (but not kindling or a lighter that we could see) was provided. Also less than a minute to the water and portapotty, which is nice. There is traffic noise from the nearby highway, but not much light pollution and we could see so many stars! Lisa was very available via messaging, and was able to provide us with a folding table for dinner prep, which was great. The cows are in close range too, so you may hear them occasionally and you'll smell them too, but you get used to it quickly! The ground is nice and flat, and the sunrise hits camp directly so it warmed up pretty quickly in the AM. Overall, it was a nice place to throw a tent down, Lisa was pleasant, and the location is good if you're looking to go explore nearby hikes and what not.
Lisa is a great host! She’s very welcoming, allowed our two young boys to pick strawberries from the patch next to the camp site and encouraged us to explore her farm. Campsite is flat, right next to water source, and about 100ft from port-a-potty. I’d definitely stay here again.
Lisa and her husband were excellent hosts. There was great attention to detail. Being able to pick fresh veggies from the garden and pick all the raspberries was amazing. We were given fresh eggs for our breakfast. Great stay.
We had a brief but fantastic stay at the Oostema farmstead! We booked a last minute one night stay and Lisa was incredibly accommodating. When we arrived we chose a cozy place to pitch our tent on her well-kept lawn just beside a beautiful bed of flowers. We met the cows and the chickens and even got to try a few raspberries as we watched the sunset over the fields. The portable toilet was well maintained/very clean and the outdoor sink was a very nice bonus as well. We would highly recommend a stay at this farmstead! Thanks Lisa!
Oostema Farm was great! We booked a last-minute stay a few days before as we were visiting the Mt. Baker area on a whim. Lisa was so nice and greeted us when we arrived. There were a few other campers on the yard as well, but it was big enough for all of the sites. As a bonus, it's a raspberry farm and you can taste-test :) So much fun!
THIS WAS SUCH A GREAT EXPERIENCE!
My partner and I have been hearing about Hip Camp for a while and we finally decided to give it a shot.
So thrilled that we did. Lisa and her husbands were absolutely delightful and accommodating. Their jacuzzi is fantastic and they kindly allowed us to us their grill! I could not have hoped for a better experience. I will definitely be recommending to friends!
