Just went camping here on 6/2/16. My plan was to go camping at cedar creek like usual but it was full. So I decided to head here to see what I could find. This campground is a little hard to find. There we no signs that let you know where the campground is and it's at least a 15 min drive from highway 155 to the camp site through a dirt road. When we arrived all the official campsites were already taken (these seemed to be the best shaded and close to 2 vault toilets) so we kept going and found a campsite by the creek in a really open area. This campground isn't as green as cedar creek but the pros of it where that it was far from all the other campgrounds. I would definitely come back for some primitive camping.

There is no campground at alder creek any more, tables gone, a lot of trees cut and laying all over, the outhouses are falling apart, it's a mess. I used to camp there in spring and fall and it was a good place. The forest service is letting these small campgrounds go back to nature I guess.

I've camped at Alder creek many times beginning in the late 70's, it used to be a great place to go when it wasn't to hot but now there is nothing left, years ago the forest service pulled out the tables and fire rings, they allowed loggers to clear out the dead trees and they destroyed the campground, left trees lying over the campsites, never put the tables back nor the fire rings. They turned it into a fire hazard, the toilets are falling down. It's a total shame. I was just there on 9/1/2020 and was 100% disappointed . the forest service is destroying all the small out of the way campgrounds.
