Avalanche Campground

Been wanting to go back since I left

We camped here one night at the end of September while on a road trip and it was one of my favorite places we found. The road to get in is bumpy and fun and not too long-the campground is in a valley with a gorgeous creek. We didn’t see the camp host but you can tell they take care of the facilities. Vault toilets were as immaculate as a vault toilet can be and the campsites were litter free. There is no fee but there’s a request for a donation of $10. We only had a $20 and felt compelled to leave it because of how well kept it was.

When you get to the campground there are 3 sites to the right with the creek running behind them. Then you pass the bathrooms on the left and enter the main camping area. Sites looked cool but it was hard to tell because they were all occupied by folks that looked like they were maybe living there for a while-they all looked nice and friendly. We ended up staying at one of the first 3 sites and no one bothered us.

No issues with wildlife though bear are active in the area and there’s bear boxes at each site.

If you sleep in a tend the pads are filled with chunky gravel-so bring extra padding!

If you’re thinking about going here-do it.
