Stories will be told around the campfire.

The Dosewallips river road suffered a huge washout some years ago and is now turning into a nice trail. It passes along the river through forest, a recent burn, and below beetling crags of basalt that originally erupted underwater. The campground lies just past a huge waterfall.
