WHIDBEY ISLAND GET-AWAY offers a cozy, rustic and wooded setting within a few minutes drive from the Clinton/Mukilteo ferry. We are close to island beaches, recreational, and historic seaside vilages and their dining and shopping opportunities. Friendly and cheerful travelers, POC, BLM, and LGBTQ peeps are welcome here. Bigots, cultists and crabby peeps will be happier elsewhere. Under our canopy of tall cedars you may hear a far off rooster crow, but mostly all you will hear are the sounds of croaking frogs or a hooty owl. Nearby are picturesque public beaches with views of Mt Raineer and snowcapped Cascade and Olympic Mountains. Within minutes are the WA State historic seaside villages of Clinton, Langley, Freeland and Coupeville that offer wonderful dining, shopping, art gallery, and entertainment opportunities. Recreational opportunities such as cycling, hiking, kayaking, fishing, crabbing and boating abound. And one more thing: WHIDBEY ISLANDERS are typically friendly and helpful. ;-) We are located in Puget Sound, about one hour north of Seattle. Travel further north by rural highways and ferry and you will be in the legendary San Juan Islands or nearby Olympic Peninsula. Suggested Local Attractions:State parks such as Ft Casey, Ft Ebey and Deception Pass are all located on Whidbey Island. Charming and historic seaside villages of Clinton, Langley, Freeland, Greenbank and Coupeville are fun to explore. Hop on the Coupeville/Pt Townsend Ferry for a visit to pedestrian friendly Pt Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula. Or drive north to Anacortes for a stunning ferry ride to the San Juan Islands and legendary Friday Harbor.

As BDW hosts WE WELCOME DIVERSITY. POC, BLM, LGBTQ, INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS and their friendly pets are warmly welcomed. If you are Racist, Radical or Cultists you will not enjoy our hospitality. Weapons and smoking are not permitted on our property. Simon was Made in England. I'm originally from NY. We have enjoyed travels in Scandanavia, Europe, Mexico and South America.

Home Town: Our home is in Clinton, WA, gateway to WHIDBEY ISLAND, located about 45 minutes north of Seattle. Whidbey Island enjoys three beautiful State Park Campgrounds - Ft Casey, Ft Ebey, and Deception Pass - but in warm months you have to be very lucky to secure reservations. Further north of Whidbey Island are the picturesque San Juan Islands, and further still is Brittish Columbia in Canada. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We haven't done much boondocking, per se, but we LOVE camping in WA, OR, and CA, on the seashore, at lakes and in mountains. We love exploring villages. And we're avid thrift shoppers. Skills or Expertise to Share: Simon is a retired A/V engineer, and a skilled Mr Fixit. Sharen is a retired Advertising and PR executive.

Sheron & Simon were great hosts. They have a campground setup that includes 2 1954 Terry campers, a tent, a campfire ring, multiple older thermos jugs, and all kinds of decorations. The campground is set up in amongst multiple large cedar trees. Sharon was very helpful giving us information on local businesses. One item that would be helpful for guiding future Boondockers, would be to tell them that their campground is on the back of their property, and give the directions to the back of their property (do not follow Hoist road beyond where there is a 45 degree curve, but instead drive straight on the dirt road to where it deadends and their campground is on the right across from one of their neighbors property.. They are not to not use their home address to find the campground, but as a guide to find the campground on the back of their property.
