A higher elevation, wooded campground especially popular during huckleberry season as this site is located in a part of the forest with many huckleberry bushes. Squaw Butte Trail #21 leads out of the campground.
We've stayed at Tillicum CG during for more than 15 years. It used to be a very large CG, with water available; no water now. There are 2 vault toilets, with garbage cans, in the main loop of the campground, and a few old, small wooden toilets scattered throughout the other loops, but I don't think the Forest Service maintains them. We've stayed there in a 11 1/2' pickup camper, and now a 33' class A motorhome, and have had to trim a few limbs in order to get to campsite #12. The interior dirt road erodes more every year. It's a densely forested campground, but we've been able to get satellite TV reception in site #12 in the past, but not this year. There's no cell service in the campground, but 1-2 bars of AT&T 4G is available about 3 miles from camp, (1 mile up FS Rd. 8854, near the junction of FS Rd. 8851 and FS Rd. 24). The current fee is $5.00 per night, or $2.50 if you have a Senior Pass or Golden Age Passport. Squaw Butte trailhead is at the end of the campground.
