Willow Creek Retreat is a private country retreat situated on a 20 acre farmstead on the West Plains of Spokane County, conveniently located 5 minutes from the Spokane International Airport and I90 or SR 2. Willow Creek Retreat features plenty of trees and a year round creek, with wildflowers in abundance until early July. Boasting shaded camp sites near a babbling creek, bird songs and bird watching opportunities including blue heron, hawks, great horned owl, quail, ducks, turkeys, pheasants, and the creek chock full of frogs for the kids to catch and beautiful horses watch graze and gallop through the fields. You can even book a horse experience as an extra including grooming, riding and feeding treats.

Our guests love that we are off leash pet friendly as long as the pups are obedient.  Enjoy 5 acres to roam with your energetic canine companions, we encourage it!

Each evening, listen to the coyotes howl, the owls hoot, crickets chirp, roosters crow, turkey gobble, and frogs croak (in spring/early summer) and the gentle ambling of the occasional short train that crosses the track on the nearby spur.

Willow Creek Retreat is a great place for a camp reunion, families wanting to get their kids into nature, fall bird hunting or a romantic country get away. Bring a tent or vehicle to camp in, easy access off county maintained road.

This was our first Hipcamp experience and we were very pleased. We were on our way to Yellowstone with our vintage trailer and three boys. Rachel greeted us right away, was very friendly and welcoming. Her property was picturesque, her Arabian Horses roamed in her pasture, the property was large and private, we were even able to set up our hammock between two trees. She has new picnic tables, a fire pit, and beautiful Russian Olive trees for shade. The sunsets and sun rises were magnificent. I HIGHLY recommend Willow Creek.

Willow Creek is a beautiful spot, the rural farm landscape is quite spectacular. The greenery during my early summer visit we stunning. The sunset was gorgeous.
The hosts were very friendly and made a point to greet us soon after our arrival which was nice. They are just setting things up in terms of amenities, but the camping spot was very suitable to my van set up which is accustomed to boondocking.
Visitors should not exactly expect an idyllic country setting as there is a railroad nearby (not very busy) and a nearby military base whose lighting is quite bright. But all and all it is decent spot to rest on your journey.

Thank you for your candor, yes we are in the country, but not a remote location at all...For people sensitive to light at night, yes I highly recommend window coverings or a sleep eye mask. I admit I am one of those people, I can't even sleep under a full moon! Other people don't care at all about the light. So it is good that you mentioned it so people can prepare. I am glad you enjoyed your stay..

Willow Creek is lovely! It is a perfect retreat from life, and not far from Riverside State Park or downtown Spokane. Our host, Rachel, is a delight and even recommended a trail that made the trip complete. Ask her about 25 mile trail along the Spokane River. Thanks Rachel!

Thank you so much! Your group was great and I'm glad you enjoyed your trip! Trail 25 is the best in both directions...

This was a last minute booking, Rachael contacted me promptly and gave me the directions to the property and all the options I needed to know. Great little spot just outside of Airway Heights. Quiet, beautiful, and and relaxing. Perfect for a weekend getaway or jumping off point for exploring the local area.

This is a lovely, secluded, wooded area. We enjoyed our stay. Our hostess was very friendly and helpful. It is close to an Air Force base, so there is some plane activity. However, planes did not take off or land at night or early in the morning. It was no problem.

A great clean, simple spot for an overnight stay on our road trip. We booked right at the last minute (an hour out!) and Rachel was very responsive. Rachel generously brought us fresh farm eggs which we cooked for breakfast. The site is next to the airfield which has larg lights, though the vista was still beautiful and no noise from planes at night.
