A small, less developed campground for tent camping only, located at the confluence of Twin Falls Creek and the Lewis River. The campground is placed on the banks of the river with an impressive view of the falls. Nearby Summit Prairie Trail #2. 5 walk-in sites available.
Way up in Gifford Pinchot forest there’s a backside entrance to twin falls that hasn’t been kept up by the state since the bridge washed out. You’ll have to find it via forest road maps. LOTS of hiking and fall scouting to be had here. Remote access may be limited to road closures or washout. It is possible to get a trailer down there but would likely require some scouting of the road first or have overland setup. Spots or right on the Lewis river.
I was at Twin Falls Campground for the day (fishing) in July 2019, and stayed here back in June 2018. It's another of the smaller campgrounds with only 5 walk in sites. I usually stay in smaller places or go dispersed style when possible.
It's a bumpy windy road down to the campground. I just drove through here (Aug 7th, 2019) and I wouldn't take a car down to the campground without high clearance. Didn't need 4WD to get around but the ruts are deep in certain spots. Please don't try to drag a trailer down.
The sites are FREE, which is alway nice, and 1st come 1st serve. The sites are limited in number, but each site is pretty large. The river access is great. The sound is a little loud when sleeping, if you're here when the river is really flowing.
Decent fly fishing in the bend of the Lewis River.
The falls itself is pretty. While not exactly twins, there are 2 waterfalls.
There is a clean vault toilet, but no running water.
Kinda awkward that when parking for day use of the river, you still have to walk through a couple sites to get to the water.
I've never camped at the base of a waterfall before, it was beyond awesome! And the best part like 95% of the places I go is that it's FREE! If I remember right, there were about 5 walk in sites. Small parking lot with 1 vault toilet. Each site has it's own picnic table and fire ring! Very peaceful! Some spots were more private than others. The site directly in front of the falls is more heavily trafficked due to the views. Everyone we encountered were very pleasant and seemed to help keep the place clean!
