I'm an outdoor adventurer- always trying new trails and up for adventures like water activities, climbing, skiing, and more!
Great little spot close to Portland and on the river

This place is pretty convenient to town and right off the main road, but gets snatched up quickly- especially during the busy season (summer/weekends) so you’ll be lucky yo find a spot! It’s right on the river and you walk down there and try to swim in the frigidly cold water! There are plenty of trails nearby. Bring cash. I think we paid $21 to camp? We brought our dog and had a nice spacious area with a fire pit and bench. It’s fairly quiet and clean. There are actual flush toilets, a sink, and drinking water (bring a flashlight though). We’d come here again! There are other sites if you keep driving. And if you drive past Indian Henry, you’ll run into a “camp anywhere” zone in case this place is booked up.

Stars, mountains, buglessness

Best stars you'll see all year if you go on a clear day (go in the summer)! You can see Mount Rainer during the day, and take day trips to hiking trails with mountains and waterfalls and even a gondola near the ski resort. RV friendly and dogs welcome at campsite (just not on trails). Running water, flush toilets, and fire pit available. Not many bugs, might might get cold at night. Ranger apprently does an info talk around 8pm. Book site in advance (fills up quickly). Will have to pay a national park fee to get in.
