“Lush old-growth along a bustling river...and highway.”

Overall Rating

Another gem in my never-ending quest to find all of the old growth left in Washington, Money Creek is FULL of massive Doug-firs, Western redcedars and even some nice sized hemlocks. Moss and lichen all through the undergrowth, making the sites not only stunning, but really private, too.

The Hoodoo campground host--a rookie as she told me, this being her first season--was uncommonly nice (Hoodoo folks aren't mean, they're just usually really particular about every little detail). She recommended we stay in a spot that didn't have a fire pit, but I asked her if I could just try and squeeze our 50' of Airstream and van into a different, nicer spot that was only about 30' long.

"Sure, let me know how it turns out," and we managed to get her in there!

I didn't care, because I love the forest here so much, but note that there is a very close train that rolls through and it can be quite loud, and US 2 runs close by too. The traffic noise was heavy during the day but disappeared completely by 11pm or so.

Cell service was banging like a 1990's gang member.

The loop on the East Side portion of the campground, it should be noted, can be pretty tight as it lollipops at the end. We made it no problem but anything larger than us (say a 40' rockstar) might find themselves in a predicament. And if there's anywhere you don't want to find yourself, it's in a predicament.

I'm going to go find myself on a river somewhere, thanks for reading and remember, only you can reduce toilet odor. Please close the lid.
