About Schafer Boom Farm
My friends and I have been enjoying camping and adventures at Schafer Boom Farm for many years. Now I want to share an opportunity for others to enjoy. This place really is best with friends, so I recommend it for groups with up to about 10 people / 5 tents. Kids and dogs love this place too.
We have nestled our camping area in a grove of large second growth cedar trees. The lighted communal area includes a fire pit and homemade cedar hot tub. Here you'll find a new timber frame pavilion and picnic table to setup up your cooking area. Choose a place to pitch your tents that fits your style: nearby and convenient, sunny, woodsy, secluded, or water view. So many choices.
This is glamping. We have romantic string lights to create a great vibe at night, a hose with fresh water, power for your devices, and Wi-Fi and cell service to stay connected to your playlists. A short 700ft walk from the campsite, we have a flush toilet and sink in one of our barns. On the side of our other barn, 350ft from the campsite, we built a cedar outdoor hot water shower and changing area. Campsites are accessible by car, so you don't have to lug your gear far. Let me know if you're short some gear, and I may be able to help out. Bring your latest outdoor toys: drone, slackline, kayak, tree-tent, whatever.
Schafer Boom Farm covers 378 acres, with about 120 acres of land in a permanent federal wetlands conservation program. That's the magic. A private, undisturbed wilderness to enjoy. There are miles of trails and grassy roads to explore the forests, fields, creeks, ponds, rivers and sloughs. There is an amazing freshwater slough system that raises and lowers with the tide that makes a wonderful place to canoe or tube for a few hours before and after high tide. Look carefully and you'll spot all kinds of wildlife. There are about 200 acres of farmland where we grow corn and peas. It's an easy 100 mile drive from Seattle. Property entrance is just off highway 12, and extends about a mile down to the Chehalis river.
Montesano, just 2 miles away, offers restaurants, gas stations, grocery store, hardware store, auto parts store, and banks. Nearby Shaffner and Chapman Farms have farm stands and pumpkin patches.

The vibe at Schafer Boom Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was our first time using HipCamp and Shafer Boom Farm was amazing. Mark has created a magical campground complete with ample picnic space, a homemade cedar hot tub, central fire pit for BBQ and smore's, and floaties to enjoy a slow float on the neighboring slough. The dogs loved the trails to run around in and the kids (and adults) loved the berry picking.
Schafer Boom was a perfect weekend getaway from the city. There was ample space for everyone to have their own camp spot with a centralized eating area to socialize. Hwy 8 is nearby so there was some road noise - this didn't bother us but it is something to consider. There is running/potable water and a bathroom close by. I would definitely recommend this to others for group trips.
