Overview

Nestled among tall conifers on the Adams Creek Fork of the Cispus River, Adams Fork Campground offers single sites for tent and RV camping, as well as one group site, with several of the sites sitting along the banks of the river.

Adams Fork Campground makes an excellent base from which to explore Mount St. Helens and the surrounding area. Nearby multi-use trails offer a myriad of recreational activities, in addition to trout fishing in the Cispus River.

Natural Features:

Located in southwest Washington State, the Gifford Pinchot National Forest encompasses over 1.3 million acres, including the 110,000-acre Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument established by Congress in 1982.

Adams Fork is part of the Cowlitz Valley Ranger District, which is located in the northernmost portion of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in southwest Washington.

This Ranger District manages four Wilderness Areas including the Goat Rocks Wilderness, Glacier View Wilderness, Tatoosh Wilderness and William O Douglass Wilderness.

The Cispus River originates in a high glacial valley in the Goat Rocks Wilderness, and flows through heavily forested areas before before meeting the North Fork and flowing westerly past many trails and campgrounds.
