Penny Springs Campground

  

Overview:

Penny Spring Campground is a treat for campers who enjoy the great outdoors in a remote area.

In the late summer months, visitors enjoy picking huckleberries and viewing trails covered in wildflowers. 

Recreation:

Catch a fish in the nearby stream, view the wildlife and enjoy a picnic with friends. 

Don"t forget your Motor Vehicle Use Map of the Cascade Ranger District.
