The perfect place for your event, workshops, festival, reunion or re-enactment!
The Windward Communities private campground stretched over more than 40 acres of the communities 130 acre Stewardship Forest. Located on a plateau just above the klickiat river, we are secluded enough for privacy, while only minutes away from HW142 and access to the wonderful regional nature.
The large campground was originally developed as a site for the re-renactments of the middle ages. In that sense it is a very natural setting without much "modern" or obstrusive structure. Perfect for groups wanting to maintain a natural feel or the look of a particular period. It is a "blanck canvas on which to paint"
Over the years we have added more amenaties such as hot water showers, kitchen facilities, improved roads and water lines. Nowadays we have been the setting of a variety of different types of events; from seasonal celebrations of earth-based spiritual community, to the annual workshop based events for primitive skills enthusiasts, or groups of grade-schoolers wanting to experience nature and learn about the sustainability projects underway at Windward.
