“Great base camp to some terrific hiking and exploring”

Reviewed Jul 23, 2017

Overall Rating

We come here every year. And we reserve the same spot. My wife has been coming here since a little child and has fond memories.
There is some great swimming holes. And a old mine across the road that is fun to explore with the kids.

In spite of no cell phone reception or running water and just pit toilets. our teenage daughters beg us to come here more often. And we all go up for a hike to big four ice caves (Trailhead 7 miles up the road). Easy 1 mile hike and we'll worth it. This is truly the road less travelled. And reservations are highly recommended for this little gem. It's a true place to shut down from all the distractions of the electronic life.

“Oh to have had more time...”

This is an epic son of a gun as far as Washington goes. The entire Mountain Loop is lined with campgrounds, though many of them (many, many) are these strange, closed "Reservable" sites that appear to be for Boy Scouts or other large groups and not just for the every day ramblin' on through-types.

But I assure you, this is NOT your grandmother's campground. Well, unless your grandmother is Uncle Sam, but she's not. Otherwise, I'm just saying your mom's mom doesn't own this place.

The campground hosts running the show--Hoodoo strikes again--could be your grandparents though, even if you were already in your 50s. And they were awesome. We showed up, in the rain and the wind, and they came around a little later (they are not stationed here, but at another campground west on the same road) with a truck full of wood. Some of that wood was wet. Some of that wood was less wet. For $6, we got a whole golf cart's tailgate worth of some of that less wet wood. And boy did we burn it. Because even in August, it was cold. And did I mention raining? Which is good, because Washington needs rain. Too bad it had to show up on our particular parade.

Sites weren't overly spacious, but that's comparing this place to other National Forest spots in Washington, which can be downright huge. The river was really flowing, and beautiful. Like most NFS in WA, there's a road really close, but this place isn't on the way to anywhere except for a few hiking trails and the road becomes dirt, so traffic was practically non-existent. I think we saw two logging trucks and maybe 5 cars the entire time, and didn't hear much of anything else.

One neighbor ran her generator the entire time we were there. But she also brought warm apple pie over to my and my two pals (we weren't in our Airstream but just tarp camping this time around - plenty of spots large enough for an RV though). So "please give the gennie a break" vs. "thanks for the warm apple pie"...well, humanity prevailed.

I'm really hoping to explore this place more because it was too cloudy to catch all of the stunning mountains that are supposed to be around here. There was a great hike called Twenty Mile Lake (or something similar) west maybe 10 miles that, as we walked amongst the old growth cedars and had waterfalls where the trail should have been around every bend, the sun poked through and it was like a PNW postcard.

When it comes to service, of a cellular variety, this place is completely lacking. Not a pin drop (same goes for every other campground on this portion of the road).

Toodles!
