Camping in Cougar, Washington



Cougar RV Park & Campground is located in Cougar, Washington about 11 miles south of Mt. St. Helen's. It is a great little campground with tent& RV sites as well as two brand new cabins that sleep 5. It is very clean and quiet, with lots of trees.

Swift Resevoir, Beaver Bay and Yale Lake are all within a few minutes where you can fish for salmon and trout. A couple I spoke to had no problems catching their limit in just a few hours.

Also, Cougar is about the closest town to access Windy Ridge @ Mt. St. Helen's. The Ape Caves, Trail of Two Forests, Lava Canyon and numerous more trails are closeby for hiking and exploring.

They are super friendly folks who make you feel like family, bringing you firewood and kindling if you run out and providing tips and directions for things to do and places to see. Ron and Sherry Isbey are the new owners and they run it with their son John. It's a place I'll definitely be going back to.

Their address is 16730 Lewis River Road, Cougar, Washington 98616. Telephone is 360-238-5224. They don't have a website up yet, so thought I'd upload some info here and hope that maybe they would get a few customers through some google searches. Please, if you book a stay with them and you heard about it here, let them know...I'd like to get a couple of free nights in that fantastic cabin!

your trip looks like a lot of fun...we spent almost every vacation in a campground or state park until I was 18...looks like a great place to stay and lots of cool stuff to do...nice pictures - a totem in the yard would be excellent!

It sounds like a neat place -- if I was a camping person, I would definitely go there. I'm glad you had such a nice time! Will check out your Flickr pics!
