Salmon Creek Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

This 15 site camp is located in a beautiful, lush, old growth forest right along Salmon Creek. The rocky gorge-like area creates two small beautiful waterfalls and several deep pools which reflect the clear blue-green waters. Wild thimbleberries and hazelnuts abound in the summer. This camp is a favorite recreation spot for local residents as well as some more distant travelers.
