Iron Creek Campground sits near the confluence of Iron Creek and the Cispus River in the central Cascades. This large campground winds through a forest of old-growth Douglas firs, spruce, cedars and hemlock. Lush vegetation and ample space between sites offers excellent privacy. I really like this campground. It is beautiful, quiet and very private. The forest provides almost total shade so the campsites don't get too hot; however the negative side of this is that the use of solar panels for battery charging is essentially impossible and so is stargazing at night. The elevation is 1,100 feet. Four loops (A, B, C & D) contain 99 single and double family sites that are back-in and paved with asphalt. Nearly level pads provide easy RV parking. Average pad size is 13'x47' but not all sites are that large. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Drinking water is provided at spigots scattered around the loops. There are also vault toilets and trash bins around the loops. The campground has an amphitheater, hiking, fishing and a picnic area. The Windy Ridge Observation Station at Mt. St. Helens is only 24 miles south. The host, who works for the concessionaire (Hoodoo) sells firewood. The campground takes reservations. Unreserved sites are FCFS. There are no hookups or showers. There is no dump station, playground or phone service from cell or land lines. Iron Creek is open mid-May through mid-September. The rates are $20 per day for a standard site and $38 per day for a double site. Senior Access pass holders pay 50%. The maximum stay is 14 days. From Randle, WA (on US12) take WA131 south about one mile to a fork in the road. At that point you bear right onto Forest Road 25 and go about 8.5 more miles. Look for the campground sign on the left. Here are some shots of the site we had at Iron Creek for the Washington rally at the end of June 2014.
