Taking a couple of girls, so it's going to be somewhat city slick camping. Requires a toilet that flushes, and hot showers...

So basicly, a campground I guess.

Any recommendations? It'll be during the summer.

A place taht I can shoot my AR's is a plus too.

Belfair state park is an OK place to camp. Has toilets and showers. Don't know of any place to shoot around there though.

Camping along the Mt. Loop Highway is nice. I believe some of the campsites have showers. Very scenic trails and easy walking. My 7yo girl walks to the glaciers no problem.

My favorite car camping spot is the Ginko Wannapum at Vantage WA, its very clean and nice. Its located where I90 and the Columbia river intersect. kinda like a mini Palm Springs in the desert.

Suggestion improvise, take a two 5 gallon buckets with you to the woods camping. One with water for showers, the other with a toilet seat. You can dump the water on there heads for the shower and you can hold the mountain money so the roll don't get dirty. Problem solved.

Or Lewis and Clark campground just a little off I-5 and Hwy 12.
(From I-5: Take exit # 68, and head east on Hwy. 12 about three miles. At Jackson Hwy., turn right, heading south. Continue about three miles to park entrance.)

I've use both sites a dozen or more times this past summer, they're both quite nice.

(I never figured out how they managed to get that angle)

I've always wondered the same thing. In order to get that photo, they would have to be directly over the stream bed, and 6' to 10' in the air.

If your interested in Hot Springs, check out the Elwha Hot Springs instead. You won't find it on any current park map do to the prevalence of nude bathers there, but it exists. It's only about a 7 mile hike.

Awesome! Invite me sometime...

One time while camping there at some river campground, a guy shot at a trailer from across the river with a 30-06. I heard it during a dead sleep in the middle of the night, and you should have seen the hole it left!

Sheriffs were out looking for him. I think they caught him eventually... some drunkard.
