A great place for a picnic, hike or just relaxing at the falls. Sunset Falls Campground/Day Use Area is located on the western edge of the Forest, on the Lewis River.  The campground has a view of sunset falls and is in close proximity to the Silver Star Hiking area.  This site is operated year-round by concessionaire. Visitors enjoy scenic views of the river and a waterfall with other recreation opportunities within a short hike on Sunset falls Trail #174

The falls are on the East Fork Lewis River at an elevation of 1,000 feet. The campground road and trail path to the falls are paved and shaded by large evergreen trees. There are several hiking trails nearby, including the Silver Star Trail which offers excellent views. The area is also popular with kayakers that visit the East Fork Lewis River.

Fishing is available at nearby Zigzag Lake or Canyon Creek. The East Fork Lewis is open to angling below Horseshoe Falls.
