Nestled deep in the heart of the Cascade Mountains and bordered by miles of national forest lies a quiet campground where solitude is nearly guaranteed. Lund Park Campground boasts just 10 sites and basic amenities. Perfect for a family like ours.
We stayed 2 nights at Lund Park in mid-July. After driving through, we chose site #8 for its distance from other occupied sites and its safety for our small children. Site 8 is against the road, but a steep (really steep!) climb is required to reach the road. Otherwise, we could see for 50 yards in any direction and the creek was a safe enough distance.
A pit toilet is nearby. There is no water source at Lund Park, so be sure to pack in plenty of water. Also, the park maintenance only comes around every 3 days, so I recommend packing toilet paper as well.
You can pull an RV into all of the sites at Lund Park. A couple of sites, including #8, have pull-through parking. Sites 1-2 are fairly large, but are walk-in. Sites 3-6 are pretty small, mostly room for just one tent or a small camper. Site #7-9 together make up a great group site, and site 10 is also perfect for groups.
There are many nearby hiking trails, including Brice Creek Trail and the must-see Trestle Creek Trail. But perhaps best of all, tons of amazing swimming holes. We found sandy beaches for our little ones, and jump-offs into blue pools for our big kids.

Camping Activity for Kids
I don’t always pack an activity for the kids, but I’ve found that it can be very helpful during down time, like while I’m making dinner. We picked up a variety of small rocks and the kids spent over an hour painting them all. Most of them they hid around the campground for future campers to find.
