We ask that you check in before 6pm. That is when we do our chores and usually retire to the house for the day. Let us know your approximate time of check in so we can plan our day. There is a level spot to park that has electric and water. You can park anywhere in the pasture that you like. Please do not use an air conditioner. This will draw way too much juice on a line that is a long way from the main fuse box. If you want to use the air conditioner, please use your generator. This is in the "south" pasture. We have 3 horses that use this pasture when there are no guests. All pets must be leashed at all times. You can take them down into the creek pasture to let them run. I have a very large dog that does not like other dogs, so please keep an eye out for him and or keep yours in the trailer. The gravel road is also a nice place to take them out for a walk. If you want to take a tent down to the "creek" pasture that is fine too. There is no dumping allowed. Please if you bring anything in, it all goes back with you, leave no trace behind. We do not have garbage facilities. ABSOLUTELY NO BURNING GARBAGE IN THE FIRE PIT! Never thought I would have to actually print that, but we had someone burn their garbage and I had to clean it all up.... NO SMOKING OUTSIDE OF YOUR CAMPER. Thank you for your cooperation. There are 2 dump stations that I know of. One is in Montesano at Lake Sylvia State Park. This has a $5 dump fee. The next dump site is on east bound Hwy 8 just past Elma and the rest area. This one is free. Suggested Local Attractions:The Olympics are north of our location of about 30 + miles. The Wynoochee Dam and lake are there with day use area and the Coho Campground. There are many waterfalls up there to find. That area is our favorite area to camp and explore. Montesano is a nice small town. There is a nice size grocery store, hardware store, coffee shops, restaurants, car repair garages, auto parts store, gas stations and a feed store. There is also a little museum that is full of the area's history. Aberdeen is a larger town with more amenities and museums. Just ask us and we will let you know what we know.

House Rules

NO SMOKING OUTSIDE. ONLY SMOKE INSIDE YOUR CAMPER. Thank you for your cooperation. Please give us a call about 1/2 to 1 hour prior to showing up. This way we can make sure the horses are where they should be, and we can open the gate. Text when you get onto Wynoochee Valley Road at 360-581-0809. If you have pets, they must be leashed or kept in your camper. Barron, our dog, has the run of the place. If you see him, please put your pet inside. There is a creek pasture where you can let your dog run, and you can also take them for a walk down the gravel road. Pick up your dog's poop in the campground and the off leash area, there is a hill side you can throw it over. If you have children, you must keep them in your area. This is a farm, and we don't want them in the pasture with the horses, or around any equipment or buildings. If you want to pet the horses, please ask us. Also we can give a tour of the farm. It is small, just 6 acres, but we do have a lot going on. Please keep your music to just your camping area. The spot where you are camping is next to the neighbor's field. Plus we have neighbors on the other side of the creek. We don't want them to get upset. But we still want you to have a good time. Also, no loud partying. Quiet hours are from 10 pm to 7 am.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We live off the main road on gravel. This road is maintained by a very few of us. So it can become potholey, (that is not a word, is it). When you come off the last bridge onto the gravel, take it very slowly. It is a very short distance on gravel. Swing wide into the driveway. There is a nice big swing area at the end of my drive. It is a very tight turn into the pasture. Our pasture is full of lumps and bumps. You can park anywhere you like. There are trees in this area too. We do have a level spot near the water and electricity. You will need to back into that spot, Directly behind that spot is a big shade tree. We have had a 35 foot motor home in there at one time and a 25 foot 5th wheel. Just drive slow as it is a horse pasture. We do have another way into that pasture, but it is way more bumpy and along a side a slight hill. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Next to RV in the pasture.

We love to boondock out in the middle of nowhere! Details: We love to camp. Some of our favorite spots are up in the mountains of the Olympics in Washington. The quieter spot the better. We love to sit by the fire and relax and enjoy family and friends. We play dominoes, cribbage and other games. We can cook inside the 5th wheel, or set up our camp kitchen outside, that is what we prefer. We also love to explore different areas and find new spots to camp. Home Town: We live about 8 miles from Montesano, WA. It is the County Seat of Grays Harbor County. It is a nice town with a hardware store, grocery store, auto parts, several auto garages, and lots of different places to eat. About 20 miles away is Aberdeen. If you need different types of stores. We find we can get just about anything we need from Montesano tho. Favorite Boondocking Locations: So far no official "Boondocking sites" but we love going out in the woods up in the Olympics by the Wynoochee Dam and finding spots out of the way from the campground. The Coho is a wonderful campground with great hosts, but we prefer to be further away from that. Skills or Expertise to Share: We are farmers. We run our 6 acre farm by ourselves and with help from family if need be. I love to garden. So I grow a lot of vegetables, sometimes too many. When we have more than we need, we like to share.

    we had a lovely experience for our first BW stay. Our daughter was ecstatic to be up close with horses for the first time. the rain made things a bit wet on the outer perimeters but the host was very helpful and accommodating when we tried to move and access the water hookup. the two designated spots were pleasant and kid-friendly. horseshoe pad for the kids to play. Not a lot of privacy when multiple campers stay but ample space for kids to stretch their legs.

    I had a great time. The host gave me great ideas on exploring the area. I wish I had more time.

    WOW what a wonderful stay. We were here 4 days and it was cool, shady, quiet and the horses came up to the fence and visited us. Charli and Dani were perfect hosts. Greeted us, had lots of information about the area and spoke with us daily. We highly recommend this spot. Thank You Charli and Dani we will be back. Thanks for all the quilting patterns and sharing your sewing ideas. R & M

    Peaceful and pleasant. Forty foot rig and still parked fine, despite the tight turn into the driveway and somewhat lumpy ground---just need to pay attention.

    We absolutely loved our stay here. Saw two deer come right in front of our rig the 1st night. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!
