West Cultus Boat-In is a boat-in only campground on the west side of Cultus Lake.  This area offers 12 tent sites. For a map of this facility click here.  If you like to camp in a very rustic setting next to the water then this is the campground for you.  Mosquitoes can be heavy in this campground, particularly in the early season.

WHERE TO PARK: There is a parking area specifically designated for boat-in campground use located within Cultus Lake Campground. Visitors with reservations at one of the three boat-in campgrounds can launch their boats at the Cultus Lake Day Use boat ramp, but must park in the designated boat-in camping parking lot. A recreation pass is NOT required for this lot.
