This large campground (98 sites) is on a flat along the Cispus River and is located in an old growth stand of Douglas fir, Hemlock, and Cedar. Lush vegetation and ample space between sites makes them quite private. This is a great place to camp while exploring the more remote side of Mount St. Helens. Iron Creek Trail #99 encircles the campground and is perfect for a stroll through the big trees and offers great views of the Cispus River.
