My friends and I had the most wonderful time here. Sally is so sweet and kind. It was the perfect escape from the city. I'm not sure our dog has ever been happier running around in the woods. I can't wait to go back!

Stayed only one night in early spring and it got really cold at night. Sally was nice when we first met but didn’t answer afterwards, when I booked the night I didn’t realize it is in their backyard. The campsite that they have is spacious and pretty as long as you’re not facing the house because then you realize you’re in someone’s backyard. We brought food to cook over the fire but it felt awkward because the fire pit was right next to the house and not on the campsite. When we wanted to cook our breakfast we didn’t want to go down by their house because there were people outside walking around so we had to go out to eat. The bathroom was a shed with a bucket and a glass door that faces their backyard and fire pit which also made my group uncomfortable, especially needing to use it in the daylight in the am. There’s two cute dogs that roam their property which was fine but scared the crap out of me when they barked right next to our tent at 7a. It’s a nice site for people who don’t mind getting super close to the hosts but as a member of a group expecting to be surrounded by woods, I personally couldn’t see us staying there any longer than we did, which was about a total of 18 hours.

We booked Pleasant Hill camping on very short notice and Sally was extremely accommodating and communicative, so we appreciated the flexibility given our quick trip!

I feel the listing was not completely accurate as it indicated that most campsites were accessible by car - when we tried to get to some of the campsites farther from their house, overgrown branches scratched our car and we had to back up while branches scratched some more. There was really only the one spot overlooking their backyard that we could get to by our car and pitch our roof top tent.

I also didn't realize from their listing that their dogs would be running around the property and up into the campsite - they were extremely friendly dogs, but our dog gets a little nervous with other dogs so I would have preferred some clear language in the listing explaining that you need to be okay with their dogs checking out your space in the evening and morning.

I would also recommend some clear signage near the driveway for Hipcampers since we arrived after dark and it was difficult to see which way we were supposed to drive to get to the campsites. Or maybe a map on the listing?

We did not come down to the house to use the bathroom or sinks or anything.

Other than the overgrowth, dogs, and lack of clear signage - Sally's property is really beautiful. My dog loved our brief morning hike through the forest!

Even though we were having a tough time finding internet for communication, Sally was kind and phenomenal at communicating and took us on very last minute. Their place has plenty of space to pitch a tent, we chose the forest up the hill and it was beautiful! There are old growth trees and so many berries. There are neighboring farm animals, beautiful sunset views and also a creek for washing up in which we did. Perfect one night stay for us during our cross country journey! Thanks again Sally!! :) Sara & Nick

Beautiful sunrise :) We put our tent on the hill, and parked the car just below in their driveway  Berries galore! Pleasant Hill Private Campground

Pleasant Hill Private Park was lovely. Rolling hills with well-manicured roadways led to small forested nooks where one could really get away from it all. Sally (and Barry) were delightful. Though please note, Bo & Doozy - two well-trained and fairly quiet 'farm dogs' - were very much in evidence the entire weekend we stayed.

Highly recommend!!
Lots of options for camping, from manicured grassy areas to more primitive, depending on how alone you'd prefer to be. Easy access to your car no matter where you choose to camp. They also provide water, a clean place to use the bathroom, and plenty of recommendations for nearby fun things to do.
It's a short ride to a few different hikes nearby, small towns, or Seattle if you're feeling the need to explore. 2 rivers also flow rather close by.
The hosts are very very friendly, and musicians. Honestly I enjoyed my stay very much and am looking forward to my next visit. (There are rumors of tree houses being built in the future as well!)

For the plant lovers, there's a huge variety of vegetation to check out.Ginormous grassy spots to set up on. As easy as you want it... (also, some of the softest grass ever)Water and sink provided!Most camping spots are accessible by car!

we had a super sweet stay at pleasant hill. i had my pup and toddler in tow, and both LOVED the whole experience. my pup ran free with the other farm dogs -- totally in her bliss!! -- and my toddler loved exploring the woods and walking the neighboring roads to see all the farm animals. sally was also amazing to accommodate a super last minute request, and left instructions so that we could find our way around. i would recommend!!

tent deconstruction!! beautiful morning fog, fall foliage and a free pup. the best!!

Soft green grass to camp on. The site had a nice little view, perfected by the sunset! If you looked up at dusk, there were occasional silent bats flying about.
I had a misunderstanding about the "portable" toilet statement as I assumed it was a Honeybucket. Sally offered the portable toilet, saying exactly what she said in the listing (that you had to take home what you put in there). I was just fine using my own pee bottle.
All in all, it was a great place to stay for the night. I'd totally recommend it and would stay again.
