“No free camping”

Reviewed Sep 09, 2018

Overall Rating

While the falls are fun to visit, there is no free camping here, only tent camping at about 11 sites. Also, you can pay $10 or get the Discovery Pass for $30 that will be good for a year at Washington State Parks. The free camping spot near the Lyons Ferry campground is also no longer available as there is a gate blocking access now. D... more

“RVs not accepted”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2017

Overall Rating

It seems that they have cracked down on RVs. The upper parking lot has signs specifically saying no RV or trailer overnight parking, subject to a $150 fine. Maybe they look the other way but we ended up at the Lyons Ferry KOA which was small but nice. Three large RVs showed up as we were leaving and they were at the KOA in the morning... more

There are 11 first come first served tent-only sites at the park. The campground is essentially a shared grass lawn with good shade coverage, fire pits, picn... more

“FREE camping in the parking lot... but read first!”

Reviewed Aug 16, 2016

Overall Rating

We were confused about this place and thought it had spots for campers, but it only has tent camping there. Yes, it's beautiful! The falls are an amazing experience and if you are daring enough, you can go down to the bottom and swim in the falls! If you;re not daring there is another set of falls that is a easier to get to. We pulle... more
