Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

In an area that is otherwise rolling pastures and farmland, Lewis and Clark Trail State Park is nestled in among towering ponderosa pine trees, fir trees and overgrown understory. The campground provides a great place to stay in an area that has few other campgrounds, and because of this it can be very busy at times.

The highlight of the campground is the two large group sites that have their own vault toilet, trash cans, and potable water in the site itself. These sites, as listed by the Washington State Parks website, can each accommodate approximately 100 people and 10 RVs, but that would make them very jammed. Fees vary depending on the size of the group and reservation information can be found below.

In 1806, the Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through this very property on their way to the Pacific Ocean. It was later a homestead of the Baterman family starting in 1864. Some of the camp's structures date back to the 1930s using stones from the Touchet River that runs behind the campground.

From the campground at Lewis and Clark Trail State Park visitors can explore the short trails that run through the state park or go swimming or fishing in the Touchet River. The park's day use area also has a kitchen shelter equipped with electricity that are available for reservation as well as numerous picnic tables. Wildlife viewing and bird watching are also possible in the state park given it's lush, forested setting that contrasts with the surrounding farmland. A sign on the bathrooms at the campground note that moose have been seen in the area and provides some recommendations on what to do in the event you encounter them during your stay.
