"It is the best place in the world to relax and enjoy yourself. The hostess is the most awesome person you could ever meet. I spend so much time there every summer that my family begins to think I have deserted them. Theres no place, except home, that I would rather be!"

-Darlene Peterson 


This is what our customers have to say...

       "Just a wonderful place to relax and let this busy world pass you by for a while. You can sit and read a book on one of the docks or try your luck with the fishing or just do nothing but enjoy the peace and quite."

-Darlene Toth-Gilson

"Dear Anita, 

      I just wanted to say thank you again for letting my parents and I come down and fish on Saturday. My parents, especially my dad, loved Nightingale's. And the people are so awesome there. We had lunch with Mike and John and Linda, then decided to stay later and have dinner too. When Scott brought me to Nightingale's on Labor Day weekend to camp, he told me the place was magical. Now I know what he means and I agree. It is so quite and peaceful there, and the people are so nice and friendly. It is hard to find a place nowadays where you can come once a stranger but walk away feeling like family. And thats how my parents and I felt when we left. We will defiantly be back; dads already talking about coming down soon to go fishing with Mike and Scott and I have the cabin booked in October. All I can say is keep doing what your doing in running the place; it's defiantly a special place! And we loved Mike's mantra of "What happens at Nightingale's states at Nightingale's." Can't wait to come down again and see you!"

      "What a find and on the 4th of July weekend! We paid for one night, launched our boat and made dinner.  The camp was quiet and the patrons were friendly and helpful.  Most of the guests had been coming to Nightingales for years. The hospitality from Anita, her family and granddaughter, Crystal, and all the guests was delightful. Monday, July 5th another longtime friend of Anita’s came to spend the night and do some fishing.  His name is Elton and the king of fishing. Elton has been coming to Nightingale's for 22 years. He got up a 5 a.m. in the morning and came back to camp at 9 a.m. with 46 fish.  That afternoon Elton cleaned and filleted all the fish, cooked the fish in corn meal and shared his good fortune with everyone.   Wow! Back at home, I called Elton and went to visit him. I hope this is just the beginning of a lasting friendship. 

​      Nightingale's is located in a well protected cove on Lake Siltcoos away from the high wind and noise. The guests and Anita greet you with hospitality that makes you visit a lasting memory. We had intended to stay just one night.  After three nights, we had to say goodbye to Anita, Crystal. Elton and all the wonderful people we had met. I’m thinking of returning in October or November to fish for fall Salmon.  I really do not need an excuse as the hospitality, quietness and beauty of this peaceful place is worth going to anytime of the year.
All I can say is Wow! Wow! Wow!"

        "Nightingale's is magical: wildlife, fish, friendly campers, lakeside camping/ RV, dock fishing, and the sweetest hostess, Anita Chasco. One visit and you will wish you'd known about this gorgeous place sooner!"
