Nearby Attractions

Decades ago, many trees in the Tie Flume area were cut for railroad ties. Remnants of the old splash dams and tie flumes are found on the river around the campground.

Shell Falls Visitor Center, at the overlook of Shell Falls, is about 18 miles southwest. This center offers interpretive trails, scenic views, and educational displays about natural features such as flora and fauna and area history.

Bear Lodge, Elk View Inn and other nearby lodges provide guided horseback riding and fishing adventures, off-road vehicle rentals and fishing supplies, as well as dining options, showers and general stores.
