East Fork Campground

Postby WA Hiker » Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:44 am

We're planning a 3 night camping trip in August to East Fork Campground, Rock Creek area. Anyone stayed there before? We're wondering, for the tent sites, how many tents each site can accomodate? One tent? 2? 6?
Do they have an overflow parking area for extra cars? :confused:

Its tough to say, honestly. There are a TON of places to camp in that area, some bigger, some smaller, it depends. How big (or small) are your tents? I can think of at least six (if not more) developed campgrounds along Rock Creek road, not to mention many undeveloped and unofficial places as well. Given the fact that area is so popular, I don't think you should have too many issues with camping or parking.

If you've reserved a site, it depends on which site you have. Driveway lengths and campsites are various sizes. There are "pads" to set up tents in most...elevated gravel over railroad ties. So it depends on the size of your tents, and there may also be room to set up a tent off of the pad. Extra parking is available near the entrance of this campground.
