Quiet in the winter

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of December and had almost the whole place to ourselves - there were only 2 other campers. It was lovely and quiet, but expect to hear road noise from the nearby highway. The bridge to the old growth trails washed away years ago, so you have to drive to the other side of the falls to get to those trails. Some of the sites are really close together. I can't imagine staying here in the summer where there would be little privacy, but in the winter it's a nice spot to relax for a couple of days. The bathrooms were clean and the camp host was very friendly.

Easy Getaway from Seattle

Quiet campground with decent privacy between sites. We stayed just one night at site 42, which was on a corner and offered a good amount of privacy and easy access to the clean bathrooms. It's a short walk to the river where we watched the kayakers and did a very easy hike. We could hear trains at night but that didn't bother us. It was a cold and rainy weekend but we still had an enjoyable time. We'll come back in the summer!

Easy Access to Mount St Helens

Loved the yurt village, which is in its own area on the other side of the campground from the regular sites. Yurts and restrooms were clean. Beware the mosquitos! We always get eaten alive when we stay at Seaquest. Easy access to the Mount St Helens area. Johnston Ridge Observatory was closed when we were there but we were still able to see some amazing views and get some nice hikes in nearby.

Beautiful campground

Sites and restrooms were clean. We had a great time exploring the beaches. Sites were reasonably private and quiet at night (except for a brief invasion of 6 raccoons at our site one night!)

Great family friendly campground

Great campground with lots of trails for hiking. Sites felt private and it was quiet in the evenings. We stayed at Quarry Pond and enjoyed the hike to the bridge and around Goose Rock. You have to cross a busy street with no sidewalks in some spots in order to get to the most direct route to Cranberry Lake.

Easy getaway from Seattle

Campground and facilities were clean. Easy walk to the beach for exploring, which made it a great spot for kids. Good amount of privacy - we could see our neighbors but I never felt like they were too close.

Lots of groups

Clean campsite and restrooms, good signage on the trails, easy hikes for families, and friendly camp hosts. However, there were a lot of groups staying together, which made for a noisier campground than I'd like. If you're staying with other families, this is a great spot, but if you're looking for something quiet and/or privacy, this is not the campground for it.
