We stayed here on our visit to Seattle. It feels secluded and quiet, but you are right on the Cedar River Trail and not far from gas/grocery stores if you need something. There is a great firepit with plenty of wood in the shed and a table made out of a wooden pallet for your stove and cooking stuff. We slept in our camper-van and did not have trouble finding a flat spot. I imagine a tent would fit, but the ground is a bit bumpy. This is a primitive campsite without access to a bathroom. I would recommend trying to arrive in the daylight because the dirt driveway is easy to miss at night. Brittany was a very good host, she was available by phone or email if we needed her and she gave us detailed directions and even had a fire going for us when we arrived. This is a great place to camp while visiting the Seattle area. I would recommend this place for small groups, couples, or road-trippers!

Stayed here for three weeks - awesome spot with lots of space and close to the trail. Did hear bikers/joggers but it’s convenient jumping on to and was great to walk/explore.

Brittany was always helpful and quick to respond too, overall an awesome experience. definitely recommend.

The site was perfect and everything we expected it to be. Very private and quiet with a nice fire pit. Brittany's directions were spot on and I had absolutely no problem finding the spot. Perfect for camping with kids, as the Cedar River Trail access is a very short walk. I will definitely be visiting again.

We arrived around sunset and the directions that Brittany gave us were perfect. The upper campsite with the fire-pit is a clearing, nestled in the evergreen trees. The road to the campsite is paved and you pass through a suburban residential neighborhood before arriving at the site which is on the opposite side of the Cedar River Trail. This would be a perfect spot for "car-camping" however, the new R.V. is parked on the only level spot on the upper land directly adjacent to the fire-pit so it may be difficult to park or turn-around if you have a trailer. We camped between the trailer and the fire-pit which was the only level spot and due to the rocky soil, we were unable to get our tent stakes into the ground. Fortunately, there was no wind during our stay. We did not venture to the lower site away from the fire-pit so, you may find some level ground there. The solar lights by the fire-pit were a nice touch and helped us when the sun went down. This site is without water so if you would like to wash-up, it is recommended that you do so before you arrive. There is access to the river to the right of the bridge however, the path below the bridge is dark and a vertical drop without stepping stones. We could not find a low-level spot to get into the water. There is a private residence within view, just to the right of a large concrete square that hangs high over the river. It may be possible to "get-in" there however, it was too dark to see an actual path. The neighbors may be used to people coming down there but we didn't want to intrude ourselves. Early in the morning hours, we could hear the roar of traffic passing on the main road nearby. If you are a city dweller and are used to this sound, you may not be bothered by it. Overall, it's a beautiful spot of nature, close to civilization with only a few minutes drive to coffee, grocery outlet and taco del mar. Regardless of our challenges, we would certainly recommend camping here for the convenience of the location and the friendliness of the host!

Hey, thanks so much for your review and feedback ! I wish we had better access to the river :/ the better access points are further down the Cedar River Trail ! And yes, after trying to pitch a tent myself recently - bring a mallet ! The ground has gotten rather hard haha ! Thanks for staying , hope you will stay again in the future ! Also- cool tent !!👍

Amazing place in feeling so remote but actually just 25 minutes from most places in Seattle. It's a gem! While it may not feel like a getaway for those in the Seattle area it is PERFECT for people visiting Sea/Tac that want to be close to it all but and have a rig or work remotely from one like me and hate being anywhere but in the woods. Good cellular service and nearby shops etc makes it handy. One last suggestion, do not trust Google Maps to guide you,. Go with the instructions as a hybrid and try to arrive in daylight to get oriented.
