“OK for an overnight or two. ”

Reviewed Sep 28, 2016

Overall Rating

Free with Washington State Discover Pass. Small DNR campground right along the banks of the Lyre River. This campground has a couple nice spots for tent campers along the river, but is not particularly RV friendly with tight spots and limited length. Western loops packs the sites in tight, but was mostly empty while I was there, leaving it quiet for those who stayed. Most of the sites are heavily shaded by trees, leaving limited opportunities for solar unless you can snag one or two of the prime spots.

Not a whole lot to do here besides fishing for Steelhead when they are running, or using it as a basecamp to explore further away.

Verizon 4g was too inconsistent for me to get work done, but I'd bet it would be OK with a booster.

Constant Critic would stay here again

“Peaceful creekside camping with swimming hole”

Reviewed Aug 22, 2016

Overall Rating

This small campground is a nice retreat for the weary. You'll need a Discover Pass to stay here "legally". There is little to do here but relax and enjoy the singing waters and tall trees and soak in the cool clear water. Campsites are reasonably spaced and each has a fire ring. Water is available at random spigots. Pit toilets are newer and clean. There is no dump station. Many sites would barely fit my 30 foot motorhome and it's tight to maneuver. Most sites are lumpy but fairly level. Many sites get some sun in the afternoon to solar charge your batteries. A large group picnic area near the toilets has two fire rings but limited parking. There is a trail loop leading to a swimming hole. Another trail follows the creek to end at a wooden bridge for the road above. Campground was full through the weekend but emptied out by noon Sunday. Some human waste and TP in brush around my site. Lots of traffic as people drove through looking for a site. Day users would occupy sites leaving them unavailable for campers. 3 bars boosted Verizon 4GLTE was stable.
