Kind of a disappointment. Lots of flies from the elk farm across the road. Not many spots, just a big parking lot. We moved up to the bar campground a mile up the road.

Nice spot on the river. Clean pit toilets with lots of TP. Level. River access and boat ramp. Some Verizon with booster, no T-Mobile. Very smoky the last few days but would be normally be beautiful

What a beautiful spot! We happened to be here while the Chinook salmon are running and the # 95 highway is littered with campers of all sizes and shapes. The owners are fishing the salmon river which is quite exciting to watch. It’s worth the 2.5 mile drive to the fish hatchery to see where it all starts and where the salmon return to spawn year after year.
We parked in the lower ground closer to the highway to maximize the amount of sun we would get in the evening. This place was very busy during this high season but there is still tons of room to park rigs of all sizes.
The toilets needed a good clean and needed to be emptied to reduce the amount of flies ( dead ones littered the floor inside the bathroom ) but it’s better than not having toilets at all.
There are a number of campgrounds all along this leg of the river. Some charge a fee and others do not. This one is the first one and is free
