This area is Closed

At this 22 site campground, one can take a scenic stroll through an old-growth forest along the Breitenbush River. Humbug Campground sites have picnic tables, grills and easy access to the vault toilets. Drinking water spigots are spread throughout the campground. Most campsites offer sweeping views of the river. May through July, the rhododendrons put on a spectacular show blooming in various shades of pink.

Wading and fishing are popular activities in the Breitenbush River, and rainbow trout is the most common catch for anglers.
