Limberlost Campground

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed
 

After a fun filled day exploring the area, relax and fall asleep to the sound of the babbling Lost Creek at this secluded and quiet 12-site campground. Towering Douglas fir and cedar trees surround this small, rustic and compact campground. The campground’s name was derived from "Girl of the Limberlost," a classic novel by American writer and naturalist, Gene Stratton-Porter. The campground offers vault toilets and garbage service. Each campsite includes a fire ring and picnic table. There is no drinking water available at the campground. Firewood is available at Olallie Campground.

Hikers, swimmers, and anglers alike will delight with nearby Three Sisters Wilderness Area, Mt. Washington Wilderness, and Lost Creek. Those interested in relaxing will enjoy a soak in nearby Belknap Hot Springs. If you have an interest in biking, several trails outside of the Wilderness Areas are available.
