One of the major draws to this location is in its proximity to other popular camping areas in this region. Keep this in mind if you’re considering a road trip to Mt. St. Helens or Rainier in the future.

Even if you’re not passing through, Ike Kinswa is a wonderful destination in and of itself. In the summer the kids can play all day in the water or on the playground and in the evening everyone can relax among the trees or snuggle into a cabin for the night.


The cabins are reservable and open all year. There are a few options for pet owners, and if you’ve stayed in a cabin or yurt with Washington State parks before then the layout and furniture will likely be familiar. There are two rooms, one with a futon-style couch that sleeps two and one with a bunk bed that sleeps 3. There’s no running water within the cabins, but there are spigots just outside the front door and bathrooms are never far away either. Plus, it’s heated!


We recommend this as a wonderful place to bring people together. While this park does lack the sprawling, breathtaking vistas of some campgrounds farther into the mountains it does offer a close and immensely enjoyable place to gather with some of the people that mean the most.
