Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

When organizing a stellar weekend outing that offers something for all of your friends, there are a few key things to look for in a good backcountry campsite: vehicle access, privacy, big vistas, flat ground for a lot of tents and a good source of water.  This campsite doesn’t have big vistas since it's tucked into the woods, but it has everything else, and it’s an ideal half-way point for folks traveling from both Portland and Seattle!  A fifty-yard walk from the campfire will put you on the banks of the Cispus River, where the view opens up with vistas of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.

If driving in a car, the forest road leading into the campsite is passable, but be sure to drive slowly and attentively.  A vehicle with higher clearance is ideal but not imperative.
