Name: North Fork Campground - Washington
We visited North Fork Campground in July of 2013 and the following are our observations from that visit.
North Fork Campground is situated along the Cispus River in typical pacific northwest rain forest. However in mid-season 2013 half of the campground was closed for removal of several trees in danger of falling. So for that part of the campground my pictures will not be accurate. I took this note from the campground managements site; "10/21/13 – We apologize for the inconvenience but we will need to close Sites 1 and 21-32 until further notice due to issues with tree root rot. This may extend for into the 2014 season, please check back for updates."
