Overview

Overview

Tower Rock Campground is named for the impressive pillar that looms nearby. The campground is situated near the banks of the Cispus River and offers semi-private sites shaded by a mix of cedar, Douglas fir and maple.

Natural Features:

Tower Rock Campground is located about a quarter mile from the south bank of the Cispus River on the east side of Mount St. Helens. The terrain is mostly meadow and mountainside, as the campground is surrounded by mountains on almost every side.

Recreation:

A privately-owned trout pond offers fishing nearby, but anglers can also cast for brook trout in the Cispus River.

The Burley Mountain trailhead is located off of Forest Road 28, about 4 miles from the Highway 23 intersection. From this trailhead, visitors can hike to multiple waterfalls, including Angel Falls.

Facilities:

Tower Rock provides easy RV camping with paved parking spurs that can accommodate vehicles between 20 to 40 feet.

Drinking water, picnic tables and campfire rings are provided. This facility has vault toilets.

Nearby Attractions:

Tower Rock Campground is just east of Mount St. Helens, making it a convenient base for exploring this volcanic monument.

Layser Cave Interpretive Site, which has a short trail leading to the cave, is also nearby.
