Stewardship - Brown Creek Campground

Brown Creek Campground Cleanup -- We will be helping the Olympic National Forest prepare this and other campgrounds in the Forest for the opening of camping season by clearing winter debris from roadways, campsites, camp facilities and trails.

  • Moderate

Our Carpool meeting place will be Haggen's Food and Drugs near main entrance to the parking lot by the US Mail box meeting at 8:30 a.m. 

The Brown Creek Campground is a little less than an hour drive from Olympia.  We plan to arrive at the entrance road at around 10:00 a.m.  Last year we found that the road signs for the Campground had been removed  (vandalisms) so finding the campground can be difficult. It will be best if we caravan to worksite. 

In general the Campground Clean Up issues include, clearing roads and campsites of leaves, limbs, down trees, remove ashes from campfire rings, clear all winter debris from the areas around restrooms, kiosks and other facilities and clearing the 0.8 mile Brown Creek Pond Nature Trail for visitors. This year’s actual Campground Clean Up issues will be uncovered by a scouting team in early April and details shared with those registered

At the Campground we will begin with a Tailgate Safety Briefing for all participants. (Safety is our #1 Goal)  We will form into teams and disperse to begin work on the cleanup activities:  There are 20 campsites in Brown Creek Campground,a Pay station, an Information Bulletin Board and Brown Creek Nature Trail. The Forest Service RecShed staff plan to participate in this project and will provide gas powered backpack leaf blowers and may provide powered brushing tools.  Arrangements may need to be made for Chainsaw support for any down trees and large limbs.
