This site is 1 of 2 sites that I offer. This site is more suited for tent camping or bringing an RV, this site is up the hill from the second site- Cedar River Cabin. The cabin offers a more glamping turn-key style site- all you pack is your bedding, food and drinks! Happy camping!

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!

Such a wicked spot! We loved this place and the location. Such a cute street to drive down. That leads up to a slight off road experience. Directions were a bit difficult but we managed to find it. Roughly 45 min from Seattle, this is a bit spacious spot for the kids/ dog to run around. Beautiful spot and would love to camp here again!

It’s a great little spot! We brought our pop up camper, 10 year old daughter and small dog. Fire pit is awesome and big, prep table, stumps and other surface good for seating if you didn’t have chairs. The little shed has a grill, tongs, charcoal, wood if you need to pay them for some, gloves and the coolest little potty called a lugloo. Let me tell you I was at first skeptical of what appeared to be a 5 gallon bucket with a seat and lid and black bag inside - but once I realized you pull the black bag out and it has this sturdy thick ziplock type back with good smelly stuff to push the black bag containing your number 2 in it to zip it up with no smell and for easy disposal, I’m seriously considering getting one of these instead or the fancy travel toilet we have! No liquid no dumping, just throw away the bag in the garbage by the end of the driveway, like you would your dogs waste! Genius. Brittany is so happy and nice and responded quickly with any questions we had and was truly amazing! My only must share comment was that this place is totally private, but is close enough to a neighborhood that you will hear vehicles, dogs and possibly people. Amazing little retreat not far from the city but just be conscious that while totally private and secluded it’s not far from civilization. The gate locks at the end of the driveway though and not once did we feel unsafe. Even heard owls at night :) thanks so much Brittany!

Thank you for your thorough review and being such amazing guests! Looks like you had a blast. You are awesome to try something new with the lugaloo- it's a great simple system! Thanks again for your kind words. Hope you stay again soon.

The Cedar River Retreat is one of my go-to sites. I've been three times now and the experience never disappoints! I always camp with my partner, but I wanted to try a camping experience by myself. I chose Brittany's site because of how safe I've felt in the past when I stayed. It has a locked gate that lets people know not to trespass.
The site also has a table made out of pallets with cute string up lights and candles and a lower table that is great for setting your cooler on. The fire pit is awesome.
No matter what Brittany ALWAYS replies within the hour and is super friendly and welcoming. Definitely a 10/10 experience

This is a pretty cool spot, close to Seattle. If you fly fish on the Cedar River, this is a great spot to set up as home base for a few days. Bring you rod, backpack, and a bike. If you head a couple miles upstream on the Cedar River Trail, you'll find a ton of good pull offs and trails down to the river. Brittany is on it and was a great host.

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.
