Moonwater was a very beautiful site. The hike down the hill is not very far and is large dirt road. Once you are down the hill, you will see a sign for two wives, and moonwater campgrounds. In order to get to Moonwater, you must walk past Two Wives. Two Wives and Moonwater are fair distance away from each other, and once you get to Moonwater you can not see Two Wives at all.

The site itself is beautiful. It is nestled right next to Salmon Creek with a single kayak and paddle board to play in the water. The water level was fairly low in September, so we didn't end up using them. There is also a fire pit and a picnic bench located at the campsite, and two flat surfaces to pitched your tent comfortably. There are porta potties at the top of the hill by where you park your car.

Overall, the campsite is beautiful and was private. The hills along the creek are a magnificent backdrop, the weather is mild, and you can see many hawks flying above head. I will definitely camp here again.

Had a great time at moonwater. The river was pretty dry and be sure to bring a water filter or your own water if you don't want to have to hike and drive to the main office to get their water.

Very private site sheltered from the would. Will for sure be going back again.

This was a spacious site with access to use a kayak and stand up paddle board. You could hear the ocean from the campsite, and there was a small river near by. Unfortunately it was a little steep to access this water, so we were unable to use the kayak as planned. Friendly hosts, highly recommend getting firestarters from them, as it can get really windy on the site.
