A co-worker recently took a road trip to Lewis River Falls and camped in the area.


From the Forest Service website:

This area is located 26 miles east of Cougar and 29 miles west of Trout Lake, WA and provides access to the popular Lewis River Trail and associated waterfall viewing. The Lewis River Recreation Area includes Lower Falls Campground and Day Use area, Lewis River Horse Camp, and parking areas associated with Crab Creek, Middle Falls, Upper Falls (Quartz Creek), and Wright Meadows.


A reserved parking pass is needed to park your vehicle at any of the six (6) sites along the 14-mile stretch of Forest Road 90. If you like to camp, do yourself a favor and book a camping trip here. Or, if you enjoy hiking or biking, or spending time with the family, plan a day to explore. And, if you are into nature and waterfalls, simply plan to be in awe. Be sure to take lots of photos.
