“Lush forest that's great for tents, less so for big rigs”

Reviewed Aug 29, 2018

Overall Rating

Tinkham Road goes through a very lush, densely forested area. There is practically no solar charging here. Young branches reach in on the roads, we couldn't even drive the access road without hanging branches brushing our roof. The road has some potholes, more so on the western end (as of late July 2018). It probably gets pretty mud... more

“Nice private forest service campsites, but not quiet!”

Reviewed Aug 28, 2018

Overall Rating

The campsites are along a nice private forest service road (FSR 55 to be exact). There are various pull-outs right along the road. The road itself is firm but full of pot-holes. Our 36ft RV + Toad was fine, if a bit slow, traversing the road to get to the site. There is a lot of background noise, though it is similar to white noise... more

“Forest road camping, a few choise pull outs”

Reviewed Oct 18, 2017

Overall Rating

Tinkham Rd is a heavily pot holed dirt road that runs parallel the 90 for about 7 miles. Our bad luck when we stayed here there was serious construction on the 90, thus heavy traffic, so hundreds of people took shitty Tinkham to avoid the traffic. A road I feel would have very little traffic had semis rollin down it. So this kind of r... more

“Tinkham Road Dispersed Camping near Tinkham Campground and Denny Creek Campground”

Reviewed Jul 15, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a five mile dispersed camping area off of Tinkham Road. Take Exit 47 off the I-90. (Not to be confused with the Tinkham Campground which is Exit 42. Denny Creek is also Exit 47, but it is on the north side of the I-90.) The FREE camping area we are reviewing is on the south side of the I-90. Yes, there is some highway noise, bu... more
