This backcountry Forest Service camp is 3 miles down the slab creek trail where it intersects with the Gray Wolf River. It’s a great camp with a handful of spaces with established fire pits. This camp is dog friendly, no permit necessary and absolutely free! Right on the confluence so you may need to yell at your camp buddies to be heard but it’s gorgeous and absolutely deserted. Nobody at the camp the weekend after 4th of July and in one of the most deserted river valleys in the Olympics.
