Trails and activities are never far away. We have some sports equipment and horseshoes available for your use, plus we can provide ferry schedules and brochures for local attractions.
We provide a heated shower building, plus a large stainless steel sink, and coin-op washer and dryer in our picnic shelter building. There is also a ping pong table and a fireplace. Firewood is usually available for sale.
For those who love to read we have a free book exchange in the picnic shelter. Feel free to swap as many books as you like.
The Garden & Trail
We plant a large garden and enjoy sharing it with our guests. You can pick berries, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Please ask about varieties in season and we’ll direct you to the best picking.
A nature trail skirts our boundary along the Little North River and begins near the office. The 1-1/2 mile trail meanders through a Pacific Northwest temperate rain forest, a world of lush mosses, ferns and lichens which cover and drip from logs, trees and undergrowth. If you are quiet, you may see deer or elk or a family of ducks in the river.
Songbirds, woodpeckers and hummingbirds nest in the trees, while beaver, raccoon and otter have been spotted along the river. Cutthroat trout, both native and sea-run, live in the river but are challenging to catch because of the steep banks and dense undergrowth.
Catching crawdads, a favorite sport for children, always yields success. You’ll be pleasantly cool along the river even on the hottest of summer days.
If you have questions about the plants or creatures, please ask. Our favorite feature is a Sitka Spruce tree that is nine feet in diameter.
