Iron Creek Campground's got nearly 99 sites and a hotel ain't one. This flat area features a good amount of space and privacy between campers, as well as potable water and vault toilets. Stroll along the lush vegetation of Douglas firs and Hemlocks and then cast a line to hook rainbow trout or whitefish. Picnic areas are available, and it's a perfect spot to access views of the Cispus River and explore the more remote St. Helens.

A beautiful campground with clean vault toilet and potable water. There is path from our campsite that join the bigger loop around the campground and access to the river. We were there after the July 4th holiday so it was quiet. We chose this campground as a base to explore the East side of Mount St Helens. It takes about an hour to reach the hiking trails and viewpoints for St Helens. Highly recommended.

the photo of the falls IS NOT Iron Creek campground -- that's Lewis River Lower Falls.

Great campground with lots of privacy. It is somewhat primitive, with only vault toilets and no electricity or hookups, but the grounds are well maintained and each campsite has a fire ring. We really enjoyed our long weekend here.

The hiking loop around the campground and along the river was enjoyable and easy enough for kiddos. There are some beautiful old growth trees to be seen, and the river is gorgeous.
