The Cowlitz River Sandy Edge Campground is 30 acres of serenity and peace. A bird watchers dream place to be! lots of singing birds throughout the campground and the anglers delight with known fishing holes right off the banks. Enjoy the private campsite with ample space for family fun and cool quiet nights on the sandy edge of the Cowlitz River. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring and a large trash can. All campsite will have their own pathway to the river with seasoned blackberries to pick! I ask to help keep our environment as natural as possible pick up after yourselves and your furry friends. Also do not leave personal items on the beach overnight we need to leave a natural environment and we are not responsible for missing or lost belongings. As we all know about bodies of water and to be as safe as possible around or near them and I advise life jackets especially for the little guys. The campground has no life guards so swim at your own risk waiving all liability from Cowlitz River Sandy Edge campground. Each site are allowed 7 campers and 2 vehicles.... $5 charge per day guests and $5 per guest vehicle. Apply that cost to campsite booking please. Thank you Dry camping with self contained travel trailer only at River Run and River View Tent sites will have access to a porta potty with permanent bathroom in near future. Fishing, (w/your own lic.) kayaking, hiking and exploring. Leave what you find. Preserve as much as possible. Close to I-5 and is located adjacent to the quaint town of Castle Rock with everything less than a half mile away! Such as; coffee shops, donut bakery shop, Mexican restaurant, other great places to eat, Cascade grocery store, souvenir shops, farmers market on the weekends, motocross flat track racing usually on memorial weekend, and several different attractions at the Castle rock fair grounds. Mount Saint Helens only 30 minutes away! Sky diving, zip lining and big cheese festival in the town of Toledo next city northeast of Castle Rock.

What a beautiful spot. I was amazed by what Angela did to her land, such a great get away and right on the river, with our own river access. Place was really clean and we really enjoyed our stay here. Angela was very nice.

Nice little get away
What a beautiful camp spot! My family stayed a few nights and had the best time! Very spacious and clean. I loved the private beach area. Angela was very helpful with instructions. We can’t wait to stay again!

Birthday camping with the friends
I would recommend Angela’s property; this was our 2nd time staying at her campground. We had a private plan to the water and a large site. The campsite was very maintained and very private. Trash can provided! Clean potty out house! Large fire pit! (would recommend a grilling grate on the fire pit). Super dog friendly! Angela greeted us and resorted us to our site on day one; super kind and welcoming. We will be back! Thank you!

sandy paws & shady hangs
loved our adventure here! sandy shores, shady trees, and a cool river! each campsite has been thought through to ensure there’s always at least one shady spot. the host, angela, is really a gem. loved that she reminded me to mind the sand’s temperature for my dogs paws. you can vaguely see the campsites next to you through the trees, but it’s nice to not be packed in tight! overall, a great experience! would recommend!

Beautiful and peaceful river site! We had a great time and would stay here again. The sites are all spaced out enough that it feels very private! The sites are well planned out and clean plus it has a table, fire pit and trash can provided. The porta potty is the cleanest one I have ever seen.
