My friends and I loved our stay at Tranquil Acres. The land is about 7 acres with options of camping in the woods under the trees or along the Quilcene river. We decided to camp close to the river.

The host met us when we arrived and kindly loaded all of our belongings in her car to take them down to the campsite. My car is not equipped to handle the steep, unpaved hill that leads down to the campsites and river. It's about a half a mile down to the river, so be prepared to walk and travel light, or have a car that is 4wd. Even a car with 4wd may have a hard time coming back up the hill as it is very steep.

GPS directions guided us correctly to Shawn's property - just keep your eyes peeled for the small house number sign off of Highway 101.

Staying at Tranquil Acres was an awesome way to finish out the summer. We enjoyed sitting by the the fire pit, listening to the soothing sounds of the river, and watching the wildlife. Our stay was during the salmon's spawning season. It was incredible to watch the salmon fight to swim upstream - they are troopers! Fishermen were near the river periodically, but they are were all friendly and very respectful of our campsite. Otherwise our campsite was secluded.

Pro tip: I highly recommend checking out the great atmosphere and delicious cider of Finnriver Farm & Cidery before or after you stay. It's about 20 minutes away from Quilcene. We had a great brunch at the 101 Brewery at Twana Roadhouse just down the road from Tranquil Acres when we were on our way home.

Tranquil AcresTranquil AcresSo nice to be able to have your dogs camp off leash!Entry into Tranquil Acres. The hill going down to the campsites and river are on the the left and host's home is on the right.

Tranquil Acres was a lovely spot along the river in Quilcene. There was plenty of room near the river for a few tents and accompanying campers. There was also a spot nestled in the trees away from the river, providing a more sheltered option for a campsite.

The path/road down from the hosts home to the campsites is pretty steep in the beginning, and about 1/4 to 1/2 mile walk. Pack efficiently and wear good shoes, or have an SUV to get you and your gear down to your campsite.

Shawn was responsive and welcoming as a host. There were fishermen along the bank of the river both when we arrived and in the AM, so depending on fishing season, it may not be 100% private. However, watching the salmon swim upstream was a highlight of visiting this spot in Mid-September.

Overall, beautiful land, and welcoming host!

You will see fisherman coming through and if you park your car by the house it is a steep steep trek down. The fisherman mind their own and the walk down (and eventually back up) is worth it. Great location for camping.

Absolutely loved staying in this magical little bit of forest. I was greeted upon arrival by my sweet host, she showed me the tent that was set up for me to camp in and then took me down the trail to the river. The campsite provided a table, sitting area, and bon fire pit but there is also one available down by the river. Perfect spot to watch salmon come through during salmon season, or just build a bon fire and cook some dinner while hanging out with friends by the fire.

It was only a bit chilly out, thankfully and by nightfall a slight rain snuck in. I started a fire in the rain but soon felt silly, so I decided to call it a night. The tent available was spacious, two cots inside with plenty of space for additional cots or sleeping bags. I stayed warm and cozy during the night. Lots of lovely birds sang through the forest and I just loved how secluded I was tucked away into the woods back here.

I drive a honda CRV AWD (all wheel drive) and was able to drive down the steep hill to the camp area. Driving up was tricky since it was wet, so I suggest if you are out here in the rainy season, stay parked at the top! There is not a toilet here, so make sure to pack it out. There is a shower just minutes down the road at the Quilcene marina, just make sure to bring a few quarters for hot water.

If you feel like exploring outside of the property, you're in luck. You're right there at the backdoor of the Olympic National Forest. I went up on a short drive to a mountain overlook and it was absolutely gorgeous. There are hiking trails galore!! It is gorgeous. In town, you can always go down to the marina and put a boat in or fish, whatever suits your fancy.

Overall, this is just such a wonderful spot, I can't recommend it enough!! Very peaceful and relaxing as well as gorgeous and engaging. Check it out :)
