Great walk in spots!

Beautiful views of Mt Hood on the way to this campground. We got a walk in spot and it was forested and more private. There were some spots right on the lake. Being near water is always a plus for campground and this one was nice for kayaking. Campground host was super helpful and friendly.

Very nice campground

Had a great (very cold) time at this campground! Went in May and it was very quiet here. Had the campground almost to ourselves. The spots were big and mostly spread out. It is close to hiking spots and the cute little town of Troutdale.

Beautiful Campground

This campground is one of my favorites even though it is pretty hard to score a spot. The upper area seems to have a lot more RV’s. It has amazing walk in spots right on the lake. It is a truly beautiful lake. I kept my kayak at the spot and just carried it down to a launch spot. There is a small market out on the main road. The facilities were basic but well kept. Super forested camp ground so privacy was pretty good.

Great location

April was pretty cold at the Grand Canyon and we weren’t super prepared to have snow but it was a great location. Trails in the canyon and around the rim we’re close. There was a grocery store in the park and not too far from the campground. The facilities were very well kept. The camp spots were pretty open and were lacking in privacy but that’s not abnormal for a national park.

Great National park location

We got a campsite near the back of the campground right next to a trailhead. The spots seemed to be well spread out so we had plenty of privacy. The restrooms were clean and the park rangers were very helpful. Only downfall of being near the trailhead was having backpackers walking through late at night coming back from hikes up the mountain.

Family friendly camping

Well maintained campground in the national park. It is pretty large and the spots are not super private. Some of them are next to the river which is nice. I thought it was a little loud because there were so many people and it’s relatively open in the forest. Had decent bathrooms and good access to easy trails and small swimming spot on the river.

Super fun campground

This campground was very well maintained. It had nice bathrooms and well laid out camp spots. Some are more private and forested and some are more open and on the River. We staid in a forested spot and it was private and very quiet. Also super easy to walk to the river and play.

Love everything but the bugs!

I seriously love this campground. Beautiful views. Almost all of the spots are right on lake Wenatchee. Most of the spots are walk in so you have to carry your stuff a little ways but it is totally worth it. I take my kayak and I can launch it directly from my spot. Later in the summer though the mosquitoes are killer. I actually bailed on camping the last time I went because of them. Photos are from two different spots.

Forested and close to a lake

Loved this campground! Lots of the spots have huge forested areas behind them. Was easy walking distance to the lake where you can rent kayaks and paddle boards or lounge on the beach. The bathrooms were clean and everything seemed well maintained.

Good location for exploring

Campground is in a good location for lots of exploring. Forks is near by plus Rialto beach, La push and many more beaches and trails. I even made a trip down to the Hoh rain forest from my site. The spots were relatively private and had good shade. There was some road noise but overall it was a great campground.

Beautiful forest campground

The campground is in a beautiful forest and the loops are relatively spread out but near enough to the hot springs resort for soaking or other amenities. Some of the spots are close together but they seem nice for RV’s, but not as private as I personally like while tent camping. The nearby hike to Sol Duc waterfalls is a nice activity while you are staying at this campground.
