      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

camping on icicle creek - what's open?

Recommended Posts

Myself and another family are hoping to park our camping trailers somewhere along icicle creek tomorrow to do some climbing in the area.

 

I contacted the local ranger and she said although the campgrounds are officially closed, some of them do not have gates and you can drive on up and park there, provided you bring your own water and crapper.

 

Could anyone confirm which campsites we will be able to park up on?

 

Thanks!

the first two campgrounds (8 mile and bridge creek) both have entrance roads that people park on (so that you are not on the main road) and do a quick walk down to some campgrounds. They are really close.

I have a little 13 footer but my friend has a longer 24 footer or something. We'll try for bridge creek, any others open further up? Upper Johnny?

Bridge creek should be fine. I have been there several times this winter and there is always some room at least. The only issue is that there are some fairly deep potholes, usually full of water, so dragging a trailer in might not be super fun if the clearance is not good but I have seen other trailers make it in just fine.
