Wide open spaces, kayaking, and small-scale farming form a unique culture at Slow Boat Farm. Camp on Puget Island, in a peaceful, pastoral setting with views of the hills and cliffs on both sides of the river. A large grassy field offers ample space, and a private kayak launch is a short walk through a cottonwood forest. With advance reservations (and the right tides), a private kayak tour can be arranged with Columbia River Kayaking. Or bring your own craft, and a detailed local map or nautical chart.

Slow Boat Farm is a small-scale working farm, specializing in garlic, raspberries, some garden produce, and a big hay field - and like all of Puget Island, is green and productive due to wet winter conditions. Camping is available July 1 through September 30.

This location was great for some primitive camping! The hosts were extremely friendly, and the farm dog, Gaston, added to the fun of the stay. The creek the Kayaks are launched from is extremely close to those wishing to kayak during their stay. The field on the farm is wide and open for pitching a tent anywhere, with an incredible view of the mountains on the horizon. All amenities are covered, including a kitchen and heated shower. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area!

Pitching the tent with Gaston, the farm dog, helping out. Waking up to a shroud of fog across the field. The island is in the middle of the Columbia River, so fog is almost always a guarantee in the morning. Running along the open field on the property. The lawn on the farm. Open for pitching tents and lounging.

Great secluded camping, quiet and so peaceful. My wife and I were the only party the night we stayed, it was exactly what we were needing.

I had the best time. Ginnie and her husband were friendly, and went out of their way to help me find great kayaking routes. Tons of wildlife. Deer next to the tent. Eagles swooping down and catching fish 10 ft from me. Sunken boats in clear water. Farmers markets. I'll be back!

We enjoyed our stay, and especially enjoyed looking at the stars, how quiet it was and the morning visit from the neighboring cows!

Great farm camping! We had such a good time taking in the views and the sunsets, and our dog had so much room to frolic and play. Nice to have the compost toilet and running water.
