Campsite in Wyeth Campground

Wyeth Campground includes 13 individual sites and 3 group sites in a beautiful setting surrounded by Douglas-fir and bigleaf maple trees. Fully paved, it offers access to hiking on the nearby Wyeth Trail #411 and Gorge Trail #400 via Wyeth/Gorton Creek Trailhead. All but 2 individual sites are reservable up to 6 months in advance. Sites 1 and 2 are available on a first-come, first-served basis only.

No hookups ARE available and only small trailers and RVs, less than 30 feet overall in length, will fit. Potable water is available.

Reserve early to ensure a spot! This is a popular campground, so sites are usually fully booked out months in advance for dates between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

The Wyeth area has an interesting history, as it was an early settlement site and was later used as a CCC camp in the 1930's and a Conscientious Objector camp in the 1940's.
