I love being outdoors and Geocaching.
So much better in person

Going to Crater Lake National Park has been one of my goals and I finally made it there. I’ve seen pictures but to see it for my self was magical. We enjoyed lunch at the gift shop. We drove around the rim to see it from different angles. We were supposed to take the boat tour but the boat was broken down. But we still enjoyed the hike down to the lake side.

Perfect Adventure

Went camping at Crescent lake this past week and had the best time. Hiked up to Marymere Falls in the afternoon between rain showers. Nice trail to the falls about 1.6 miles round trip and not very difficult at all. Also hiked the Storm King trail which was difficult at times and really worked my legs but worth every step. Lots of wildlife around the area with Black Tail deer and Raccoons.

So close to home.

The camper spots are really close together. Our neighbors sewer hook up was right next to our camp fire pit. Kind of was a turn off at staying at that site again. On a good note they have a great big field to play games with the kids or dogs. We enjoyed riding our bikes around the park and walking down on the beach during low tide. I work close to the park so I went to work a few days we stayed at the campground and it was closer then driving home. It was such a great feeling to leave work to go camping for the night and relaxing. They do have buildings for events and a group camping.

Geocaching Galore

Our first time at this state park camping. We picked the forest camping because of the trees for our hammocks. Lots of room at our site 79 for camper and truck. Also the fire pit was far enough away from everything no worries of embers on hammocks or camper. The showers were hot but low pressure. It only took two tokens for a quality shower. The only draw back to the camp site was no sewer hook. We enjoyed walking on the beach and hiking around the park to all the Geocache’s. Great food at the guardhouse and the staff is super friendly . There is so much to do at this state park from the museum, bunkers to explore and just relaxing. Kids of all ages should do the Junior Ranger program which the Gift Shop has the packets.

Lakeside Camping

We stayed for three nights. Our campsite was right on the water side which made swimming and playing in the water so easy. The camp also has boats to rent. So we rented one to get a Geocache that was on an island on the lake. The lake is five miles long with lots of camping spots along the lake. They also have cabins you can rent.

Great location

I had the greatest time at this campground. There is so much to do here from hiking, biking, swimming and Geocaching. We took our bikes and visited a lot of caches this way.

Then one of the days we spent at the lake swimming and just enjoying ourselves.

The camp has very cleang bathrooms and showers.

Playing on the beach with kites and the shipwreck of Peter Iredale. We had the best vacation ever.

Great Camping

We went camping in the Olympic Mountains at Browns Creek campground. My fist time camp here. As a child we camped at a lake near by so decided to check this out. Enjoyed the walk around the pond with the kids. I did need bug spray because of large amounts of mosquitoes. Did see a lot of birds and two deer.

Fun times with the family

We went for a family birthday party. Stayed one night only. The grounds were sold out and crowded. We enjoyed hanging out on the beach and swimming. We used the BBQ under the trees to cook on which was nice. I'm not sure if I would stay there again.

Fun on the Hood Canal

We camped here in a early September last year. We enjoyed being so close to the water for swimming and floating. It's also just a short drive into town to get supplies. I didn't like how the water stations were closed on one side of the park.

It did rain one of the mornings and ended up with a puddle under our text but it was the last day so no loss. I think next time I'll try and rent a cabin when I stay here

Time to relax

So last summer my girlfriend and I were doing a Geocaching quest. We stayed at Cougar Rock a few days while looking for our caches. We really enjoyed having the trees at our camp site for our hammocks. We spent the hot afternoon napping and relaxing in our hammock. It was the best experience ever.
