A walk-in campsite near the highway.

The only site that was available when we went was #14. It was a long way from our vehicle lugging our gear to the campsite. On the plus side, our site was adjoining Elk Creek. On the con side there wasn’t much privacy from other campers, and we heard a lot of traffic noise from the highway nearby.

Quick camping trip 2019

My friend and I snagged a beautiful FCFS site here on out way out towards Tillamook and a coastal hike. We were quite please with the scenery. All sites were pack in, but we had backpacking gear so it worked out. Pit toilets and the ranger comes by daily.
