Something not right?

Description

A BLM site with 6 to 15 sites I didn't specifically count. Rigs over 25 ft may have trouble turning around. I arrived late Thursday before Labor Day weekend 2020. There was one space left and it was nice. This is a free federal BLM site and no Washington State discover pass is needed. Campsites are well dispersed and I can hardly see my neighbors. The gravel access road is well maintained and only moderately bumpy. There's a short hike out to hog Lake with a nice view of the lake from above. It's more difficult to access the lake below and I did not try it. Basalt cliffs are on several sides of the lake. Trains blow their horns as they approach the crossing a mile away but it's not obnoxious. Maybe six trains a day and I don't remember any at night. Verizon coverage varies from 3 to 5 bars and there is a cell tower not too far away. There is a parking lot at the entrance that may be usable for overflow parking/camping. My site was clean with no glass, beer caps, or other trash. Because of the extreme fire hazard rangers were out here two or three times a day. No target practicing or shooting is allowed ever and no campfires during this fire season. I would definitely stay here again.

Report Check-In

Beautiful landscape and plenty of places to BLM camp. There was a very clean porta potty at one of the trail entrances as well. Lots of cows roaming around but no traffic jams. We would come back here again and again.

Report Check-In

Big dispersed parkings for long rv, calm place, no water, close to highway but far away enough for a good sleep.

Report Check-In

the road to the lake is closed, and quite a few of the old sites are blocked. there is 1 portapotty, but it's a quite full. there is a gate across the road to the lake, bummer really!! but it was quiet and peaceful.

Report Check-In

Spaced out spots. Quiet. Peaceful. Away from road. Good stop, not much to do but that’s ok

Report Check-In

Did not stay here, but was at Fish Trap lake nearby. Was told by a transient person there that Hog Lake was full of mean transient people.

Report Check-In

Pretty decent spot for a night of sleep. Kind of crowded but the spots are spaced out and you can basically park anywhere. Pretty quiet and far enough from the interstate that you can’t hear the road noise much. Would stay here again.
