STARGAZER CAMPSITE - Located in a secluded alcove at the edge of the property, this site is perfect for looking at the night sky over Little Mountain.

Campsite includes an outdoor table, fire pit, and space for your tent & vehicle*.

The farm next door to us has Arabian horses - there’s a chance you may have a front row view of them if they are grazing in the pasture next to your site!

 (*Vehicle parking at campsite is weather-permitted. If there is heavy rain before your visit, it may be a 2-minute walk to your campsite from your parking space.)

ABOUT WHEN PIGS FLY FARM:

GARDENS- A family-owned farm focused on organic and sustainable practices - our gardens are full of organic produce, berries, apples, grapes, herbs, lavender, & patches of wildflowers here and there. 

*Our gardens are closed for tours & walkthroughs this year, but you can still stroll alongside them and see everything we have growing!

ANIMALS- Home to 7 alpacas, 30 laying hens, and 3 barn kitties. 

Our alpacas wander and graze in the field along the campground during the day - Walk up and say hello! 

The barn kitties sometimes like to explore, so you might see them sneaking around the gardens.

Feel free to take a stroll by the barn gate to take a closer look at our hens. (No guests in areas marked ‘Farmers Only’ please)

CAMPSITES- Our campground area includes 3 separate campsites for tent camping, and is a designated part of our working farm. Please stay within the campground area!

We have 2 restroom options for campers - one outdoor toilet near the main gate, and a brand new covered outdoor Shower & Bathroom.

*Quick note - our neighbors are other working farms, so while we try to preserve a peaceful environment for our campers, you might hear some farm ambiance from time to time :)

THINGS TO DO NEARBY- We are a quick drive away from water activities at Big Lake, hiking & gorgeous views at Little Mountain, and swimming at Clear Lake (*CURRENTLY CLOSED). There are plenty of local trails nearby for hiking, biking, and exploring.

Downtown Mount Vernon is a scenic 20-minute drive from the farm. You can walk the outdoor promenade along the Skagit River, get takeout from local restaurants & coffee shops, or visit unique downtown shops that are taking top-notch safety precautions with masks and distancing.

COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES - Our self check-in process is completely contactless, and we are always available by text or phone if you need anything.

Our 3 campsites are well distanced from one another - located in three distinct areas of the campground, and separated by trees. We are booking each site at a limited capacity, to limit the number of guests on the farm at one time.

The campground has 3 permanent hand-sanitizing stations and hand-washing stations - At the main entrance, at the portable restroom, and at the main restroom / shower house.

Our only common spaces - toilets and shower house - are sanitized once daily, and all have open ventilation around the top to allow for better airflow.

Even though we are outdoors and operating at limited capacity, we ask that guests wear masks in common areas, or if you find yourself passing by other campers. Please leave a respectful amount of distance.

IF YOU NEED ANYTHING- Send us a text! We’re happy to help.

Possibly the nicest port-a-pot in existence. Lovely farm with classy touches like solar field lights to add ambience. The only disappointment was that the swimming lake beach park was closed so wish we had known that before spending an hour driving around looking for that.

The site was great, really enjoy the outdoor bathroom and shower. I was under the impression that there was "communal" wood for the fire pit, as I had read on the description but then had to pay for it on site. Other than that, great experience
