Take a walk down the hill and into our little enchanting PNW forest beneath towering firs and cedars. If you need to get away and connect with nature but don't want to drive to the mountains, this is the place for you!   Leave your device in the car and experience nature in all it's wonder! This slice of heaven is full of wildlife of all kinds and is only suited for a 2 man tent along our beautiful forest path. It's mostly private asside from campers walking through the forest to get to the creek which is a minute from this site. 

If you arive after dark or are staying just for one night and want easier access at this low price, plan to stay at the MJ Nestle site. It is down the hill >1 minute from your car. 

Need to set up a tent *next to your car*? Instant book a site at our Salmon Creek Roadside Retreat! It's perfect for quick trips.

Want to camp on the banks of the river for a few days? Check out our Salmon Creek Riverside Retreat listing! 

If you have questions as to which of the 3 sites would better fit your needs, send me a message or call 360-3four2 six 58four! 

The toilet accomodation for this facility is a bucket with a compostable bag and trashbag that you take with you. Consider bringing a bucket to take it home in. Mention the codeword PTP so I know that you understand this.

Our two nights at Salmon Creek were our two favourite all around nights of our trip. We were greeted by Julie, the wonderful host, and her beautiful family of 6 kiddos, and we later met her husband Patrick. We got to pick our own tent site and customize it, and the kids were just as involved with making it feel like home as we were. The piece of land is full of room for adventures, and is the perfect location for exploring Portland and camping all at once! We laughed a lot and felt safe, taken care of, and were provided all the basic amenities INCLUDING a very quiet nature-noise only site. Finally, we were given the grandiose honour of naming our tent site as we were a part of its’ creation. If you visit the MJ Nestle cedar canopy inn, you will not be disappointed.

Julie was wonderful. The site & property we're absolutely beautiful, serene & peaceful. Amenities we're good. She provided the necessaries. Composting toilet, assistance, easy to talk with and to. Definitely a spot to stay. Also, quick to make things right.

We had a great time camping here! It's not super private but it is relatively quiet and felt safe. The site was clean and neat and everything was great!

Julie is so sweet and considerate. My boyfriend and I arrived very late after a 10+ hour drive and she made sure that not only were we comfortable and happy with our spot but she also called a bit ahead of time to ask if we wanted an area closer to our car- so thoughtful. Julie and her daughter Ellie walked us to our site, oriented us to the property and even gave us some granola bars! Super sweet! We had one of the best nights' sleep in a while (slept for 11 hours lol).
I would definitely come back and stay when back toward Portland. Absolutely worth it!

Cute little forest site not far from the creek. The site is a little more open than I expected & you can see the main house from the toilet area. Since there are numerous trails around it I imagine during busy season it would be even more of a privacy issue. Overall decent little spot for a night.

Hipcamper Julie
Response from Julie, the Host, on September 19th, 2019

Hi Lanna! I just want to assure you that the sites are completely out of our view at the house. There are several spots to choose from and the one you stayed at has a little more space to spread out. :) Next time you stay I can show you a tiny one that is more tucked away but that trail you refered to is rarly busy as this is such a small camp. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay!
