It seems as though nobody travels to South Central Washington - they travel through South Central Washington to a further destination.  That's one of the many things that make this area so special - it isn't crowded!

The topography ranges from rugged Cascade Mountain peaks to the lush Columbia River Gorge, high desert plains and thousand acre ranches.  For campers there is anything you could look for.  You can tent camp next to a trout filled stream, RV camp within feet of the Columbia River, bicycle from campground to campground without riding on or even crossing  one interstate highway.  And no matter where you go camping, you are almost guaranteed to be in a campground without any crowds.

Some of the highlights for campers in South Central Washington include a day at Beacon Rock, a tour of Bonneville Dam, exploring the ice caves near Trout Lake, spending a day at the Maryhill Museum and Stonehenge replica or exploring the mountain hamlets of Packwood and Randle.  For a small part of a big state, this camping area offers those interested in tent camping and RV camping far more than they expected.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
