“Wonderful Maiden Voyage for Tilly”

Not much more that I can add to Michael & Imkelina's description. We also had a senior pass so it cut the price in half. The sites were spotless, the hosts were friendly and accommodating and it make for a splendid maiden voyage. A great campground to walk through with lush greens and the North Fork babbling a way. There is a multi use trail right across the street from the entrance so bring your mountain bike. We were in the one pull through site and were able to put our trailer in there with a little bit of jockeying around. It was listed as a 32' site but it was just that. Because it was so quiet we were able to turn Tilly around and park her with door and awning to the river. Our 4' slide had plenty of room on the street side. There were plenty of easy back in sites both large and small. Location was great for us because it was just up the hill from our place. The 23 Road is washed out right now, about a 1/2 mile up from the campground but plans are to repair it in the late summer and fall. When the road is open the opportunity for exploration is superb, specially when the huckleberries are in season. More campgrounds up the road, just waiting to be explored.

“A beautiful campground with large private sites nestled within a thick stand of mixed conifers...”

Our nightly rate was with a Interagency Senior Pass. Regular rate is $18.00. So...if you are 62 years old, we highly recommend you purchase this lifetime pass, it will save you hundreds of dollars in entrance/camping fees in National Parks, Recreation Areas, Monuments, etc.

This beautiful campground sits along the north fork of the Cispus River and as lucky timing would have it, there wasn’t a day here that we did not see Coho Salmon spawning up the river. North Fork is situated between three of Washington’s most impressive mountains, Mount St. Helens, Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainer. Shaded by a canopy of trees, this dense forest of mostly Hemlock, Maple and Douglas Fir also comes with a carpet of ferns and vibrant moss. Surreal surroundings indeed.

There are 32 sites, with many of the outside sites being large enough to fit a Class A or Fifth Wheel. There are two very clean vault toilets within the park and potable water is at multiple faucet locations. As we were there before Labor Day, we made reservations, but as it turned out, it was not necessary as there were plenty of sites available. The only noise in the park was fellow campers driving in, the rain showers and wind gusting through the canopy of branches...very quiet. No cellular service, so plan on being disconnected while you are there.

The town of Randle, about 12 miles away, is the closest town that will provide you a grocery store, fuel and cafe.

We would definitely stay there again, as it is close to Mt. Rainer and Mt St Helens National Park.
