    We sayed on site 23 - double site & the best site in my opinion.

    CAMPGROUND NAME: Panther Creek WA

    VISIT DATE: June 2012

    REGION: Pacific Northwest

    RANGER DISTRICT: Mt. Adams

    NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Carson

    DIRECTIONS:
    In Carson, WA, at intersection of Wind River Rd (State Rt. 14
    West) and Hot Spring (State Rt. 14 East) take Wind River Rd north
    and go 4.8 miles to Panther Creek sign. Turn right after sign
    onto Old State Rd. and immediately left onto Panther Crk Rd. Go
    2.7 miles to campground on right.

    NOTE: Panther Creek Rd, which becomes Forest Rt. 65, is paved but
    single-lane.

    GENERAL COMMENTS:
    The elevation is 1,000 ft.

    The campground has three unnamed overlapping loops in a stand of
    pleasantly mixed conifers and deciduous trees. There are some
    huge Douglas fir and cedar trees but more of the campground
    enjoys ample shade from smaller hemlock, maple and alder. Shade-
    loving plants provide good privacy and moss, fern, and lichen
    suggest the campground has a moist forested environment.
    Although not seen from any of the sites, Panther Creek can be
    heard throughout campground.
