Historic Site, Intrusive Highway Noise

We stopped for a night on our way to Joseph. It seemed like a good stopping point near the highway. The campground is very well kept with nice touches such as a lit pathway through the woods to the washrooms. It is a shame that the campsites are directly by the highway. A half-mile into the forest would have made all the difference! The noise was very loud and traffic did not slow down at night. Eventually we got used to it and it faded into the background as white noise. Convenient but not idyllic.

Convenient Glamping Spot

After camping at damp Olympic National Park campgrounds, we decided on a more southern spot last year. Honeyman has become our go to camp ground for late-summer car Camping with the kids. The weather stays sunny and warm longer than the northern regions of Oregon/Washington coast. Nice amenities including hot showers - which are a welcome convenience after spending the day playing in the dunes ( Sand cookie anyone?). The sites are relatively small but fit our two large tents and cars. The kids enjoyed roaming in the forested stretches between the camp grounds. Best of all, the dunes and lake are a short walk away.

Basic Amenities, Grand Natural Beauty

We stayed at camp site #44 which has plenty of space and is surrounded by ample greenery to block view from neighboring camp sites. Vault toilets only. Mosquito repellent strongly advised. The hike to Timothy like is short and scenic. Timothy Lake itself is spectacular. Particularly since motorized boats are not allowed and on a sunny day Mt Hood is reflected in the water. Worth visiting.
