Come experience the AYH Ranch - Vashon Island's only legal campground for over 30 years! We are no longer a hostel, but we are proud to continue serving Vashon and Seattle as a seasonal campground. The ranch provides a rustic, western themed camping experience with a variety of fire-pit teepees, teepees, and plenty of tent camping sites available. We also rent our main house and our large log cabin, perfect for groups of any size looking to get away - all on our idyllic grounds on historic Vashon Island. This unique western campground is conveniently located just 25 minutes from Seattle and Tacoma, on the Puget Sound, right in the heart of the pacific Northwest.
